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.

All lights stay lit on my CD changer when I turn off engine and remove key in my 2006 Maserati. Battery went dead, I think, because of this. One person who came to change battery said that when the...

the lights might be staying on because the remote wire is hooked up to the 12 volt constant or battery wire instead of being hooked up to the ignition wire.and i have never heard such a thing of when the battery gets low the computer can cause the lights to stay on that is BS. I hope I have answered your question.

Flashing lights on cd changer, Peugeot 307!

There are a few variations of this model eg; IDCA09,IDCA04,Fiat & aftermarket units.As already stated these models do suffer from mechanism faults quite a lot.This is due mostly to the complexity of the mechanics.The flashing lights are a classic symptom of a jammed or broken part of the mechanism.They can however be repaired by certain car audio repair centres here in the UK.I'm afraid unless you know what you're doing then just by stripping the mechanism down is unlikely to cure the faults than can occur.

Lights in radio lcd screen dissapear in my Lincoln LS 2000RI

Hello, Can you please provide the year, make and model of your vehicle? Without a bench-test I'm guessing faulty solder connections on the circuit board - usually repairable. Please contact me if you would like more details on the repair.

Thank you,
