I've had a Panasonic SA-PM19 for several years and have been very happy with it. Suddenly the remote control does not work! I think the part number is EUR7711150. I inserted fresh batteries and it still won't work (double checked to make sure the batteries were in correctly). The manual controls work fine, but the remote has no affect. Please help!

Your Panasonic stereo will have to be disassembled to access the CD drive. REMOVE POWER BEFORE DISASSEMBLY! Be sure to read and heed the warning about exposure to the laser before attempting maintenance. The tracking mechanism may need cleaning before it is lubricated. For lubrication, I have used silicone spray (the kind used to unstick windows) applied to a cotton swab and then applied to the mechanism tracks.

You can go to Wal-Mart or any other store and buy a cheap universal DVD remote control. If your old remote control had a working EJECT button, I would think that is the only button that you want to check and make sure that the new one has. Other than that, they usually all work the same.
Could be a CD defect, but probably just dust inside. Try canned air, or connect IPOD after you convert CD's to MP3's or other player to AUX port as a connector as a work a around. Splicers available online if you already have a TV connected.
Hi. Got the very same problem. At christmas I had loaded two cd's in one of the racks. I used needlenose pliers as well and pulled each of the 5 trays out (well past their runners). Tried to dismantle the unit with the 3 screws on each side, but gave up. When I turn the power off and on and do a cd check the "hello" flashes then nothing, tried cd/change power button and basically everything else. All I can say is go easy on the unit as I was to forceful an now think i've ruined it. I'm gutted as this was a great mini hi-fi and has served me well. Best of luck with ur Panasonic, cheers.
If this is under warranty just take it in and get it repaired. If so, I feel sorry for the technician who must fix it.
If it is not under warranty, just RUN, run as fast as you can away from this machine. Panasonic made several models with this same mechanism in it and they all have major problems. They are the hardest CD mechs to repair. A mechanical nightmare. Most places will just replace the entire mech, but that would make the repair cost about $150. It may be better to just get a new one.
Your problem is a very common one for these. I am very sorry you got stuck with Panasonic's worst CD player ever. I work at an authorized Panasonic repair center, I am being totally honest with you about this. I really do feel bad for you. How could you know that this design was the worst they ever made? You couldn't! This is the CR16 mech (that's what panasonic named it) yo ucan call any authorized Panasonic service center and ask somebody who fixes them if they have ever heard of that mech and I would be shocked if they had anything good to say about them.
