Question about Panasonic SC-HT670 System

1 Answer

Unit says Init Please Wait

I have had this system for more than 2 years and love it.  I just renovated my home and disconnected the unit.  Then unit was never moved more than 10ft from were it was originally.  I reconnected it last night and the unit is now frozen from playing dvd's and listening to it on surround sound.  I can play the radio and use the remote to access the tv and radio tuner.  The unit will not open or close the dvd player at all.  When I turn it on it say hello-init and then please wait.  I have tried to hold the power and stop button down but with no resolution to the problem.  Is there anything I can to before I pay to have this problem checked.  Thanks Very much

I've just spent the last 3 nights trying to fix that same issue with my player. I ended up pulling out the dvd tray assembly, and making sure there wasn't anything broken inside or obstructing other pieces. Come to find out, my 1 year old had pulled on one of the trays and it pulled the tray off it's tracks. After that, it would just go to "init please wait" forever. I pulled the side track cover off and aligned the tracks manually. Everything had to be absolutely perfect or else you'd get nothing. After the fact, I realized that there were two holes in the bottom of the player that you can take a spare small gear (which is attached to the plastic cover on top of the dvd tray assembly) and stick it in there and manually adjust the tray positions to make sure everything is aligned properly. After messing with it three days, it ended up being quite simple to fix. Everything works like a charm now. If you need details, feel free to email me.

SA-HT730 need help with the above problem it just shows INIT and nothing else happens


Are you trying to reset the password for Ratings or re-initialize the unit to all factory defaults?

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Panasonic-SC-HT730-Home-Theater-Systems-manual/id/356ci961/t/2/

Page 27 shows one instance of INIT.

Re-initialize Setting


This returns all values in the Setup menus to the default settings.

≥Yes: The password screen is shown if "Ratings" (??? page 26) is set. Please enter the same password. After "INIT" on the display disappears, turn the unit off and on again.
≥No


Page 36 shows how to reset everything.

You have forgotten your ratings password. Reset all the settings to Factory Preset.


While stopped and "DVD/CD" is the source, press and hold ['Square Icon' button for STOP] on the main unit and [S10] on the remote control until "Initialized" disappears from the television. Turn the unit off and on again. All settings will return to the default values.

Panasonic SA-HT680 Home theater problem


Try these steps to reset the unit. I got these from the Panasonic Cust. Service # 1800-211-7262
1. Unplug the unit power.
2. Wait 2-3 mins before replugging the unit.
3. Turn it on.
4. If the display shows INIT / PLEASE WAIT, Press and HOLD the Tune Mode (STOP) button on the main unit. At the same time press #10 (Channel button) in the remote control. They have to be pressed & held simultaneously for atleast 5 seconds. Wait till the INIT / Please Wait display disappears.
5. Once the message disappears, RESTART the main unit by pressing the POWER button OFF / ON.
6. If it does not work, try several times. If it does not work, contact a local repair shop (call them to find out a repair shop near you). If the repair shop wont do it for you, call them back - thats what they told me.
