Question about Panasonic SC-PM19 CD Shelf System

Open Question

No sign of power

Today I pressed the remote to turn the system on. Then I pressed "1" on the remote pad thinking that was the way to access the CD in the first tray. There are two or three discs in the tray stack, and I probably pressed that pesky "1" before it cycled to its starting point. Big oops! Since that time, the stereo seems to be basically dead! When it's plugged in, there's not even a red light on for "AC in." I left it unplugged for several hours, then plugged it in again. The "AC in" light came on briefly, then the system turned itself off. What to do? Is this the power amp module or a resistor gone potty? Or is it something I did with my finger twitching on the remote? Is there any way to reset the system? This Panasonic SC-PM19 CD stereo system is no longer under warranty.

sounds like the laser is no longer working. Call partstore at and let them know what model number you have and that you are looking for a replacement laser for the unit. Replacement is for the mechanically inclined or a technician. The part is static sensitive so I recommend taking the unit to a repair center.

This seems to me like a power problem. the system might have worked fine in the past, but that's electronics for you. Power surge, irregular power supply, excess power supply, etc can affect the unit thereby not making it to power on.

This unit must have a power supply board in it where power enters from the mains. A capacitor, fuse, diode, etc may have been defective on the power board and maybe that's why its not making the unit turn on. There might also be some disconnection or something, inside the unit which is not making it to power on.

To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter in order to test the components on the power board, once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store withing our vicinity. This is the only way by which you can detect the problem.

Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.

I wish you the best of luck.

SOURCE: I have a Panasonic CD

F61 is generally a 'shorted-speaker' or 'microprocessor' problem.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

The least you should do is with the unit unplugged, remove the rear cover and check for an internal fuse. It should be somewhere near where the mains cable plugs in.

This is a sign of a power supply problem. These units use what is called a "switch mode" power supply. These use a capacitor to kick-start the power supply. While I can't say for sure, this is the most likely cause. There are other components that can be close to failure later in the circuit that can cause this as well. Without seeing the actual unit and testing the circuits, there is really no way for me to know. You should expect to pay in the $20 range for parts for this repair.

Stuck in standby

You can reset all to factory settings, which may help; unplug power, put back in switch on with power button. Then press together "tape", "CD" and the power button. You may need to reset the clock before it will work. If you need the manual, here is the link; check page 26 for the reset if not clear - nothing else in there that seems to be related, but you may find something i missed. Hope this helps :)

Lg fb162 region code locked

1. Press "On" on the unit
2. "No disc" will appear
3) Press "pause" on remote
4) Press "1472"
5) pressing "preset+" on remote five times go to the fifth group
6) edit the 5th number group in the code
the first number is the region code
eg. if the number is "12" then the region is set to 1
if the number is "42" then the region is set to 4
so if you want all regions set it to "02" by pressing 02 on the remote
7) when finished press "select/enter"
8) press "pause" again to exit from the menu
9) power off the unit and turn back on again.

How do i turn off the alarm

Here's what to do:
1. Press 'Timer' on your system (or the combination of buttons needed to access that function on your remote). At this stage, 'O PLAY' should be seen on your display.
2. Press that same button again (or the combination of buttons needed to access that function on your remote), TWICE, and you should see 'O OFF' on your display.

.... and there you have it, the alarm/timer function is now turned off!
Still getting problems, please reply!

Cd doors don't open and Errors 1 and 4

I had the same problem with my CMT-EP707. I read on this site to try various combinations of turning power off then turning the power back on while holding down either or both of the stop play button and the eject button for the affected CD tray. What seemed to work for me was turning on the power while holding down the eject button for CD tray 2, even though the error referred to CD tray 1.
