Question about Panasonic Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a 90's vintage Panasonic radio/cd/tape combo unit that I have enjoyed since new. Recently the multi cd unit quit functioning. That unit is separate from the radio and the model is SL PK345. It will pick up the cd but than just put it back down and rotate to the next disc and repeat the process. Is there any fix for this or should I look at replacing? If so, what can I replace it with?

No answer after a year? Must be a really complex problem or some geek would know how to fix it!

Actually if you just unsnap the cover over the area where the disc plays (push in the two tabs at the edge and rotate upward) and use a swap damped with alcohol to clean the small plaster laser cover (the small part that jumps up and down) you will be back in business.

The tape player is an external unit that is connected where indicated to play tapes through the radio.

Tape recorders.


Hi,

Most tape problems would be mechanical in nature. I am venturing a guess that the belt(s) are cut. If your brand/model uses two (2) separate motors, then either both belts are cut (unlikely) or the regulator circuitry powering these motor(s) are defective. In some instances, the logic circuitry (especially those with dubbing features) maybe at fault.

Corrective procedures would entail opening the unit for a look and see. This of course would require that you be familiar with electronics circuitry & mechanical components, use of a DVM and possibly even soldering. Should you be uncomfortable going this route, perhaps it will be to your advantage to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Incidentally, should the downtime and cost of repair be no longer economically reasonable, then perhaps purchase of a new unit might have to be considered.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hello, my remote for my Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder / VCR Combo recently stopped working, and whenever I press a button on the remote, I get a message on the display as "RC1" I'm guessing...


Actually, you are sort of correct, in a sense, RC1 means remote command mode 1 (the default mode of your combo unit). There is one way you can try to fix this:

Remove the batteries from the remote, press any button on it to clear its existing memory buffer, then re-insert them or replace them with new ones. While unit is on (no DVDs or tapes in it), point the remote at it - press and hold 1 and ENTER/OK buttons together for 10 seconds, then release.

This should (in most cases) restore full remote command operation to your combo unit - if when you press a channel button on it, and the unit's front channel changes, the remote is now functioning as it is meant to.


The good news is this will constitute any workshop repairs or costs (except perhaps new batteries for the remote if required).

I hope this helps a bit.

Nothing works


I've had Panasonic and other radio/CD/tape players quit reading CDs after the laser head lost alignment. I assume the radio is still working. The cost of a tech realigning the laser is likely more than the cost of a replacement. Lasers may be knocked out of alignment or drift off on their own.

Multipurpose units generally don't emphasize quality. With the low price of DVD/CD players, you may have a large radio now that wil fit on top of a new DVD player.

It sounds like your unit has a LOT of broken solder connections and dirty potentiometers. Unless you are VERY good at soldering and want to invest about 1 to 2 hours of time, I would toss it and start fresh.

No sound from CQ-1305U car CD/stereo


You may have one of this two problems:
One of the speaker wires is grounded to the chassis.
Or your car may have a factory amplifier between the radio and the speakers.
My suggestion is to rewire the speakers lines

Actually, there a re a bunch of hits when you Google it.

Here's the answer I found straight from Pioneer:

If your car CD player is a 2006 model or newer:
  • With the ignition on and radio OFF,
  • Press and hold the MULTI-CONTROL button for 2 seconds
  • Rotate MULTI-CONTROL button until display reads CLOCK.
  • Push MULTI-CONTROL button up or down to adjust hour and minutes.
  • Press ESCAPE or SOURCE button to exit

If your car CD player is newer than 2000 but older than 2006:

  • With the ignition on and radio OFF, press and hold the FUNCTION button, until the display pops up, then release the button.
  • (If you do not have a function button, use the AUDIO button instead).
  • Press the FUNCTION button again until the clock shows on the display.
  • Press the UP and DOWN buttons to adjust the hours.
  • Press the LEFT and RIGHT arrows to move to the minutes.
  • Press the UP and DOWN to adjust the minutes.
    When you've completed all the steps, just press the SOURCE button to exit
    .

If your car CD player is 1999 or older:

  • With the ignition on and radio OFF,
  • While holding down the CLOCK button, press the number preset button to set the hour.
  • While holding down the CLOCK button, press the number 2 preset button to set the minutes.
  • Pressing the respective buttons consecutively or continuously will advance the hour and minute.
For further assistance please consult your user manual.

Here are some other answers from around the web:

Hold down the source button till the unit switches off. Press thefunction button until it says clock. Use the tuner/volume controls tochange the time. Left/right switches between hour and minute. Up/downchanges the actual numbers.The website I'm including has all the old manuals on it if this doesnot work for you. Problem is, you may not know your model # so willhave to click through the links till you see a pic of one that lookslike yours. Hope this helps. I'm stoked that my clock is finally right!

turn the radio OFF with the car ON
then its easy to set the clock.
Most folks try to figure it out with the radio on
and it cant be done with the radio on,

Turn it off. Hold down "func" or "function" until something happens.
Then press the arrow keys still something else happens. When you're done, press "func" or "function" till nothing happens. Turn it on.
