Question about Audio Players & Recorders
When I turn on my Panasonic SA-PT46 I hear the sound drrrrrr. It sounds like something gears rotate against something but nothing happens. It will be the same sound when I press the OPEN button. So disc tray will not open at all.
The tray mechanism tracks may be binding or the mechanism may lack sufficient power to move the tray.

Testimonial: "I'm not shore that is lack of power. This sound coming from driver gear (the black one, small gear under the big one pointed with red arrow) and mating gear level (the white one). I opened system, picked up dvd and checked every parts. All locks like ok and no any damages. Tested laser and laser drives out and back but nothing happened after that."

SOURCE: Tray won't open!
Hi, not being too familiar with this model ( i.e. whether a single disc or 5 disc changer). it sounds like the CD player section is trying to find home position and will not continue until it has done so. It is very likely that there is a disc in the mechanism and depending how competent you are with a screwdriver, you may be able to release the disc either by removing the top cover or check on the underside of the machineto see if there is a hole in the bottom where you can wind the cd mechanism to the eject position.

Cannot eject disc. ≥The unit may have a problem. While the unit is off, press and hold (>> / >>I) and (< OPEN/CLOSE) on the main unit at the same time for about 5 seconds. Remove the disc . After disc removal or if this does not work you may need to reset to factory defaults. for the player alone.
To return all settings other than some settings to the factory preset.
≥Select “Yes” in “Restore Default Settings” in the Setup menu.
This returns all values in the Setup menu and the on-screen menu, except for “Remote Control Code”, “On-screen Language”, “IP Address/DNS Settings”, “Proxy Server Settings”, “Network Service”, “DVD-Video Ratings” and
“BD-Video Ratings” to the default settings.
If this does not work then you may need to reset everything to the factory settings.
To return to the factory preset. Everything Reset.
≥Reset the unit as follows:
1 Press [POWER] on the unit to turn off the unit.
2 Press and hold (>> / >>I) and press [POWER] and [< OPEN/CLOSE] on the unit at the same time for more than 5 seconds until “PLEASE WAIT” is displayed on the unit.
3 The power is turned on and then turned off automatically.

Upon powerup, these units perform some testing functions and attempt to get to a 'known" state. It would seem that this is not completing. This can be because the CD mechanism is jammed or because of a power supply problem. Without seeing the actual unit and taking a few measurements, I can not state for sure the exact problem. I would pay for a detailed repair estimate and report the results here. From that, we should be able to guide you through the actual repair.<br /> <br /> Regards,<br /> Dan
