Your cd tray is hang and is not at the desired need to take it to service centre.If you have any tech knowledge then you can do it on your own as you just need to push the cd belt so that the changer tray can come outside at the cd loader.

This is not likely a control board issue. If hte CD changer is "out of timing", this problem can be seen. Are there any symptoms other than "no lights"?

    The way these systems are set up, the CD changer must be able to return to a "known state" before the system will work correctly. When the unit is powered on, there is a startup sequence that happens including a reset of the changer. If any portion of the sequence fails, the unti will power down. I'm not sure of your model was included in an engineering modification to the loader or not. This unit should go to an authorized Panasonic service center for repair. If this unit has the changer that was modified, it will be modified during the re-timing procedure. This should be a labor only repair.

Your control board is unplugged internally or it is shot. You might be able to find a replacement for the board but you will have to take it out first.

How can I get the cd changer to stop changing non stop?

Something is out of timing. When powered up, the unit trys to get to a known state and will continue until it reaches that state. If the timing of the gears has been changed, this may not occur.

I'll try to see if I can create a set of instructions to re-time this.

CD Changer

Common Problem with AIWA 3 disc machines. I have 3 in my service shop right now. For tray not rolling in on it's own, the drive rollers have to be changed, along with the Drive Belt. Also, for CD not reading, try CD lens cleaner.
