Question about Audio Players & Recorders

7 Answers

I have a Panasonic Mini stereo SC-CH94M bought in 1996. Recently a CD blocked in the carrayer. I had to opened-it to take it back in place. Now, the carrayer indicates an error message when I turn it on. He is trying to scann the disks 3 times, but it stops at the begening and it is traying to move to the left and does'nt scann all the way to the right. After the error message, the groop "F" is highlited. Is it possible to reset the CD player? Thanks Michelrvenne@videotron.ca

    This is not a problem of reader, This is a problem at finding the wright CD on the list?

    I know I can bye an other one,
    It was working OK yerterday it is just a matter of having the carrayer finding the disk.

  • michelrvenne Mar 02, 2009

    Do you think is possible to find the manuel for this Unit?

  • michelrvenne Mar 02, 2009

    hbsurfdawg thanks for your reply,the Reader is moving along on the track but stops at the begining of "B" location on the track and does not run completely from one side to the other and refuses to mount any disc, (It was going OK yesterday) After three try it stops and indicates error and the button "F"section is litten.
    But the carryer is stop at "B1". Thanks Michel

    I am familiar with the Panasonic and back then they had some Readers that would fail to move along the track and read the disc. If you are getting an error it is about 85-90% the IR or Infrared is ok but it sticks on this delicate track. Back then we could replace it, but it not worth doing... for that I am sorry.

    Unless this has sentimental value, it is not worth pursuing and you to answer your question there is nothing that you can reset to get it to work properly.

    One question . Can you play Any CD's at all consistently?

    If so, then it plays only that format. CD's today use different formats from 1996.

    If you find one that works, then that format will be the one that plays and you can use it to play Only that format.

    it will not play mp3 or any recent recordings that are done on a computer or from a friend unless it is recorded in that older format.

Every time that you power up the unit it performs an internal reset/test. The failure you are seeing is caused by the mechanism being "out of time". Unfortunately, the only way to resolve this is to dis-assemble the unit and re-assemble in a particular order with the parts "aligned" properly. This is not a simple task and will require the service manual to indicate the alignment points. I have done a number of these and they are not the easiest. If you are off by 1 tooth in a cam gear the unit will not work properly. I would suggest that you take this to a Panasonic authorized service center. They will have the instructions and jiigs to insure proper assembly.

That is not a matter of reset.

The CD starts reading and as soon as the lens is moved detects an error, and goes in Fault mode, that is the F.

It can be a lose contact to lens pickup, a damaged lens pickup, or a mechanical problem.

The unit must be taken apart and tested to fix this.

Better if the job is done by a technician , if you DIY follow the service manual to do the repair.

Start checking the contacts to lens pickup.
Check if belt is ok, belt and motor should be fine.
If you do not find any mecanic fault , then replace lens pickup, try cleaning it first.

repair must be done by a qualified technician

Unfortunatly there is no way to reset the cd player.

it sounds as thought has a problem with hardware in the carrier.

you can take it in to a repair shop and have them try to repair it, but it would be cheaper and faster to just replace the whole unit.

I hope everything works out.
best of luck.
please rate good.

This is probably a dirty or dusty lens, or possibly the optics failing, please try a cd lens cleaner and canned air and then try again.

    if the tray/ carrier is offbase and not where its supposed to be that could be the problem instead of the lens.

    Can you tell me more about the error message you receive?

No antenna, no radio reception


If the model number is SC-AK630, please confirm. The antenna should still be available from any Panasonic part distributor. Please confirm the model and I'll get you the part number and cost.
