    Same as others. Won't play CD. Says "TOC". ?????

  • Anonymous May 05, 2009

    deck 2 will not play . Laser blocks seem the same for all three . I swapped the assembly from 1 and 2 (remember to mark which location the deck was in to identify the bad parts later). Now deck 1 is inoperable but did work for a little while . This shows the circuitry may be okay . The laser and/or disc appears to be defective . Does any one know a source for parts ?

Hi
If the machine cant read the table of contents of a disc this would suggest either the lens of the optical pick up is dirty or the optical pick up has failed completely or something directly relating to the optical pick up i.e the spindle or stepper motor, if you can easily acess the optical lens you maybe able to clean it using a cotton bud and re-test, just try this with a dry contton bud to begin with if this gives an improvement you may wish to use a cotton bud with a alchol cleaner like I.P.A,
make light circular movements over the lens. If this makes no difference the machine requires repairing, so consult a local service engineer.
regards

CD's won't play


I know that Panasonic provides chips, optics (laser),etc. to Emerson. I am familiar with the problem you've experienced because I've had a Panasonic CD Player. If the disc doesn't spin (as you said), the problem must be that your shelf system probably has an optical problem (laser problem/pickup problem) and will need to be serviced.
