Is there an easy fix to the problem given in the details section below?

No there will not be a easy fix for this. You can keep putting up with this the way you have been or buy a new receiver and try to sell this one on craigslist, eBay, etc.

Why won't the CD drawer and Cassette door open on my Panasonic SA-PM17 CD Stereo System?

This does happen with CD trays, it's quite common. I can't remember the exact mot common cause, but it's some worn out part, such as a small (plastic) cog wheel. Search on "cd tray won't open" on the internet to find a multitude of reasons, most to do with computer CD trays, but I guess the mechanism is essentially the same. These may also describe ways round the problem.
Some CD players have a small hole on the front near the tray into which poking a straightened out paperclip should enable you to open the tray by a few mm, enough to be able to pull it open in an emergency - but it's awkward to do on a frequent basis.

I have a sony 400 cd player and the lights come on, but the carousel won't move. When I press any button the button will light up but nothing happens. The blue light flashes all the time. Also, the door...

sounds like your loading mechanism is jammed up. I would take the cover off, and look in the back where the cd's load to play and see if you can see anything out of place.

I put 2 cd's on top of eachother. now the cd player wont open but it will turn on. when i turn it on it says mechanical error.

You could try gently sliding a thin blade in the top of the tray slot to hold the CDs down whilst, equally gently prising the underside of the tray with a small screwdriver (it may help to press teh open/eject button at the same time).

May have something in common with the other poster's problem, but player isn't damaged (i.e. no accidents or abuse). CD tray doesn't like to engage to retract and sometimes stops when coming out and...

I might be able to make a comment that makes some sense to you.
I have owned several CD changers, including ones made by Yamaha.
What happens is that the belts that control the opening and closing of
the tray and engage various features tend to stretch over a period of years.
Thus you get things, like the drawer doesn't go out or in properly. Or some
other weird thing happens. The best suggestion I have, if you feel confident is
do the following procedure for locating a slipping belt.
1 Unplug the power from unit
2 Remove the cover (usually a phillips head screwdriver will work.
3 Plug in the unit, push the power button but don't reach inside of it.
4 With a good, bright flashlight so you see very well push the button to open the door.
While it is trying to open, LOOK for a small pulley attached to a belt that is attempting
unsuccessfully to open the door. That belt will look good, but be stretched enough to not
succeed. It will take some repeating to (hopefully) find it.
5 Replace that belt.
The best way to do this is to remove it and locate and electronic PARTS supplier in your area.
Not really Radio Shack but a true electronic parts place where you can go down and the counter person will help you match it up to belts that they stock for thousands of small electronics devices. Might take a lot of searching.

There is one other solution I know of. VERY OFTEN these devices like your CD Changer end up in thrift stores all across America. They can now be bought for a song, so to speak.
I hope this helps you,
Best Regards,

CD tray does not operate

More than likely a belt which runs from the load/unload motor to the CD tray. Replace this and everything should work. I've done dozens of them. Unless you are pretty handy with electrical components I'd recommennd a repair shop. A straight forward repair If it's the problem I described, about 40 minutes work if that.
Just make sure there isn't a disk caught up at the rear of the tray. If you are missing a CD that's possibly where it is. That could be stopping the tray from opening.

CD changer eats CDs

Sounds like its time to take the cover off (after unplugging the unit of course). Sorry to hear you are having a problem. Good luck.
