I have the same exact problem. Turns out my toddler has stuck a piece of paper in the tray, so the tray was just stuck. I just undo the four screws on the side and 3 in the back, lifted up the top cover, remove the paper causing the jam, put everything back together. Problem solved. Saved $140 from having to sent it to Panasonic

The CD loading mechanism is not resetting properly. When powered on, the entire mechanism goes through a startup alignment sequence. This is to be sure that the unit is in a known position and state. The init indication is for the "electonics" reset portion, the wait message should be present while you hear the mechanism move. The most common cause of this is a slipping belt or a jammed CD. Be cautious about trying to repair this yourself. It is easy to damage the gearing inside or to get it out of aligment. There is a good possibility that this can be repaired with either no parts or with a $3-$5 belt.

My RCA RTD 206 5 disc changer wont play DVD's. It stays on Disc 3 or just says close. I called the # in the manual foe help, but its no longer in service.

If it plays the same disc without issues, you have a mechanical(or the electronics powering the motors and such) problem. For more information, please visit my website at Thank you.

Open the drawer and check to verify the disc was put in the disc 1 position. Sometimes the changer gets confused if disc 1 is not in the disc 1 cavity. Also, 5 disc changers are very prone to failure

Will not play anything.

There is a rubber belt inside the loading mechanism, you should replace it by the new one. Cleaning the optical unit can be of great help also. If you need more info, please advice.
