Question about Panasonic SC-HT920 System

SC-HT920 - Says INIT and cannot perform functions requested

My darling sons put 2 magnetic clips, that hold our entertainment unit doors close, into the DVD player. We didn't realize this until I went to take it apart to figure out why the only DVD in there wasn't working and heard them moving around. Before taking the player apart, it would say "Hello" on the display and then "INIT", followed by "Please Wait". If you asked it to OPEN, it would make a little noise and then stop and the display would read "Open". The same with closed. It wouldn't recognize the disc in the No. 1 spot (saying "No Disc) and wouldn't move to any other spots to read discs. When I took the cover off and extracted the DVD, I noticed that the clips were dropped under in the DVD reading area. I had to take the top portion of the turn plate (the part the holds and spins the DVDs) off in order to get the clips out. I put it all back together and tried to get it to aleast open, but it would just read the same display as before. Then I noticed that it wouldn't even say "No Disc" when requested to scan the No.1 spot. It still won't move to other disc spots and doesn't read "Closed" when requested it to open and close (which it still doesn't do). I took it apart again to see if I could notice anything broken or odd to me, and I couldn't. I played with the power while I had it apart and noticed that all the machine does is move this rectangular piece (located under the area the DVD is to be read and set back a bit from the actual reader, I could only see it with the DVD turntable taken out) a tiny bit forward and back, though it has more distance to move than it actually does. I assume it's involed with helping the gears to open and close the unit and turn the DVDs to access the requested DVD. What I am wondering is whether my DVD player is done for good or is it fixable. If it is fixable, what may be the problem and possible cost to fix it. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I know my unit is 4 years old, but I've enjoyed it and would love to be able to keep using it!!
Thanks in advance,
mehopes

SOURCE: dvd tray will not open

Sounds like it's jammed it self up, if you got finger nails try pulling the front on the dvd drive as you push the open button, otherwise look for a little tool of some sort to wedge in the front of the dvd drive to give it alittle movement as you press the open button, it may need a bit, just be careful not to break it lol , if still no luck unscrew the sides and back if it has screws at the back , lift the top off , and push the dvd drive from in there , that will atleast get the disk out, and lets hope solve future problems ,

SOURCE: Unit says Init Please Wait

I've just spent the last 3 nights trying to fix that same issue with my player. I ended up pulling out the dvd tray assembly, and making sure there wasn't anything broken inside or obstructing other pieces. Come to find out, my 1 year old had pulled on one of the trays and it pulled the tray off it's tracks. After that, it would just go to "init please wait" forever. I pulled the side track cover off and aligned the tracks manually. Everything had to be absolutely perfect or else you'd get nothing. After the fact, I realized that there were two holes in the bottom of the player that you can take a spare small gear (which is attached to the plastic cover on top of the dvd tray assembly) and stick it in there and manually adjust the tray positions to make sure everything is aligned properly. After messing with it three days, it ended up being quite simple to fix. Everything works like a charm now. If you need details, feel free to email me.

SOURCE: panasonic sc-pt1050 just displays close

I have the same exact problem. Turns out my toddler has stuck a piece of paper in the tray, so the tray was just stuck. I just undo the four screws on the side and 3 in the back, lifted up the top cover, remove the paper causing the jam, put everything back together. Problem solved. Saved $140 from having to sent it to Panasonic

All - driver - passenger - front an back ? Look for broken wires inside the rubber boot from the body to the door ,driver side !

Power Windows Operation
Power Windows
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. The DDM receives a window switch request, over the SBI serial data, from either the passenger door module wired to the window switch pressed or from the driver door switch assembly. The DDM checks the Class 2 serial data to see if the status information is correct (i.e. ignition switch position) to permit window operation.
If the status information to permit window operation is correct, the DDM sends the command to the door module controlling the window to move the window as requested.
Windows Power and Ground
The windows are powered by discreet power and ground circuits. These circuits are in the same dedicated connector as the window motor drive circuits.

PWR/WDO 30 amp circuit breaker located in the rear fuse box ,DRVMDL fuse 10amp located in the same rear fuse box . This power the driver door module (computer )

The vehicle is equipped with power door locks. Each lock actuator is powered and controlled by the door module mounted in the individual door. The driver door module (DDM) is the master control for the door lock system but the rear integration module (RIM) contains the program that determines when the lock functions are permitted.
The exterior key cylinders are wired to either the DDM or the passenger door module (PDM), depending on the location of the key cylinder. The interior lock switches are wired to the driver door switch assembly (DDSA) and the PDM. The DDSA and the PDM send the lock switch requests to the DDM over the simple bus interface (SBI) serial data circuit. The DDM then sends the lock requests to the RIM over the Class 2 serial data circuits.
The door lock operation modes are controlled by the rear integration module (RIM). The RIM examines the requested function from the DDM, or the remote function actuator (RFA), as well as the transmission shift selector position and the ignition switch position information available over the Class 2 serial data circuits. The RIM determines if a locking function is permitted, and commands the DDM to perform the function permitted. The DDM then sends commands to the rest of the door modules via the SBI to implement the selected locking function.
All programmable modes of lock system operation are stored in the RIM. The RIM checks the lock function program selected against the lock requests, the transmission selection and ignition key switch condition to determine if the requested function is permitted. If the requested function is permitted, the RIM then commands the DDM to perform the lock function over the Class 2 serial data circuits. The DDM commands the individual door modules to perform the lock function over the SBI serial data circuit.


GOOD luck your going to need it !

MSD2754GR FRIDGE SID DOES NOT GET COLD OR SHUT ALL THE WAY UNTIL YOU LIFT UP THE FRIDGE SIDE AND SHUT. CAN I FIX THIS BY PUTTING A WASHER AT THE BOTTOME OF THE DORR OR IS THERE TOO MUCH ON THE DOOR AS MY...


The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ΒΌ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it's wore out and doesn't work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.

SA-HT730 need help with the above problem it just shows INIT and nothing else happens


Are you trying to reset the password for Ratings or re-initialize the unit to all factory defaults?

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Panasonic-SC-HT730-Home-Theater-Systems-manual/id/356ci961/t/2/

Page 27 shows one instance of INIT.

Re-initialize Setting


This returns all values in the Setup menus to the default settings.

≥Yes: The password screen is shown if "Ratings" (??? page 26) is set. Please enter the same password. After "INIT" on the display disappears, turn the unit off and on again.
≥No


Page 36 shows how to reset everything.

You have forgotten your ratings password. Reset all the settings to Factory Preset.


While stopped and "DVD/CD" is the source, press and hold ['Square Icon' button for STOP] on the main unit and [S10] on the remote control until "Initialized" disappears from the television. Turn the unit off and on again. All settings will return to the default values.

Ge profile artica refrigerator door will not close


clip on bottom of hinge is worn or broken had mine replaced. magnetic seals are not strong enough to hold the door closed on their own. Original problem was the magnets were too strong so the clip on the bottom hinge was added.

After i dial a number the machine is showing "MEMORY LOW" on display unit, how to solve the problem ?


Hello,

Please perform the following:

Super NVRAM init
When a super NVRAM init is performed, the all-in-one language and telecom country/region settings
are undefined. The user is prompted to set the language and telecom country/region. Until these settings
are defined, the all-in-one will not return to the Ready state.
CAUTION A Super NVRAM init erases all data that is stored in both the unprotected and
protected NVRAM memory.
To perform a super NVRAM init
1.
Turn off the all-in-one.
2. Press and hold down the * and 5 buttons.
3. Continue to hold down the buttons while you turn on the all-in-one. Hold the buttons throughout
the entire power-on sequence.
4. When Permanent Storage Init. appears on the control-panel display, release the buttons.
5. When prompted, set the language and telecom country/region.
6. Allow the all-in-one to return to Ready before using it.

Enjoy the solution.

Washer - soap dispenser door - Magnet fell out... where does it go


I had the same problem. If you turn the dispenser so that the front faces away from you, look on the left side in the front. half way up there is a space with what looks like a plastic clip that might hold the dispenser to the front bezel. This actually holds the magnet, which can be installed without taking the dispenser apart. Be sure to install (pop in) the magnet vertically so that the long part of the magnet sits next to the right side of the dispenser opening (when viewed from the front) when the drawer is closed.

The door/tray will not open.


Press the open button, and quickly lift the unit 1 inch and drop it. This overcomes the strength of the magnet and allows the door to open.

One option is to set the cross over to the sub so it knows when to send the low frequency to the sub and not the front speakers. 120 is a good setting. This can be done either via a know on the sub woofer or the setup screen of the main unit.

good luck
