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.

SOURCE: how do you unlock the tray for the panasonic

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.
(No setting)

≥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.

Cheers!

SOURCE: Panasonic Surround Sound system Displays "INIT" and Disc tray will not open

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

My panasonic sa-pt460 surround sound system won't play any new dvds, does not recognise them in the system and says no disc, is this something that can be fixed or just because of the age of the syste


Sounds like it may have a hardware problem, specially if sometimes it plays one disc, and others not (I mean the same disc).

But in any case, check to see if there are any firmware updates from Panasonic, that may fix the not recognising new discs issue.

Usually firmware updates are done by formatting a USB pen with a manufacturer's tool and then booting the unit from that USB.
In some others just leaving the firmware file in the USB, and the unit will pick it up an upgrade.

The DVD drive draw will not open. Just makes a grinding noise. What should I do ?


If you are willing to open it up : first unplug it from all electrical power.Inside you can see the geared drive train which moves the CD tray.Check for built up dirt,lint,etc.Clean it with CRC "2-26" electrical lubricant & cleaner.Near the entrance to the tray are two sensors,one above where the disc goes in,and the other is below the disk.Clean the surface of each so that they can see the disk is blocking their view of each other.ALSO,check for dead flies,kids toys,etc.

I also have a problem with the drawer. It opens when I switch the unit on and when I close it - it opens again!

If I switch off at the mains the drawer remains open - to prevent dust ingress I have resolved to holding the drawer in whilst shutting down the power until I get a solution.

If anyone has a solution I would be grateful.

Original fault tray would not stay closed,opened up 460 case and then removed 2 screws on rear of drive. unplug 2 ribbon cables.
unscrew 1 screw in micro switch pcb rotate and spay cleaner into switch and rock switch several times until the reading across switch is 0 ohms before you start you will find the switch has about 2.5 k of resistance across it witch is too high.
as long as you have about 4ohms it will work.

Unable to load DVD and mechanism makes noise like gears slipping


I think that ;
somehow someone bumped the unit and dislodged a DVD from the tray..
thus impeding the opening mechanism as well as the turntable (the unmeshing gears).
I would unplug the unit and remove the screws holding the top cover on , and take a look at the tray .
once thats done , let us know how this is going.

Media Center disc tray will not open. When the "Ejecting" light displays, there is a whirring sound for a little bit but the tray does not come out. There is not a disc inside. I have disconnected the...


This is a common problem with optical drives. There is a small band/pulley inside that connects the ejection motor to the gear action, This reduces stress on the gears and it helps with smoother motion while running. The issue comes in where the band/pulley becomes worn out and loosens a bit and this causes a reduction in friction against the spindle the band/pulley is on. You may need to get a new band/pulley for your optical drives ejection system in your media center. The whirring sound you happen to hear it the ejection motor spinning but its not catching on the band/pulley.
