The disc light is red. e.g. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. When I click Play nothing happens. The CD player was playing fine the day before.

    So how do I get that done? Are there authorized repair shops locally?

Hi,

There might be million of reasons for the same and i hope you would agree.If this would have been an intermittent, i would have judged Lense to be BAD.However, more likely it is not.

As this is an immediate reaction from the changer, as i am not there, still i can make an intelligent guess, it has to be a Hardware Failure.Now, this might be blown of IC's, it might be driver motor is burned ( which is the most likely cause ) i have seen on these players.

The best solution - If you believe, you are handy at electronics. Take a Voltmeter. Open the player ( It should not be under warranty, i hope unless you would have it returned ).Check all the circuits starting from small IC's to big Capacitors. You can also judge those by naked eye as it might be leaking, bulging etc. The Voltmeter would read their reading as ZERO. Than note down the part number. Purchase the part from local dealer or online. Replace ( It might require soldering and unsoldering ).and it would be done.

If that's a motor, check .Again, purchase the same part number. Replace and it's all done.

Technics 5 Disc Cd changer is a part of PANASONIC.

Exactly same situation arises when the optical lens of your CD player start loosing its contact with electrical circuit. So for solving either you need to replace lens with new one or just repair the electrical circuit.

Nakamichi cd cassette player 1 not spinning discs


There's a Music Bank 7-disc player in use in my bedroom these days. Nice unit, but they used to come in for service once in a while- from what I could tell, these units don't 'park' the CD drawers on a soft power off- they simply shut down. When powered up again, they sometimes let the disc last in play slide off the tray & jam the machine. I've had no issues, as long as I always hit stop, wait for it to park, and then shut off. The analog output's sound has been very good (has a coax out as well).

Hello
Check the CD for any defect. Hold it against light and see whether there is any tiny spots. If the CD is faulty this kindl of fault can occur. OK.

CD player won't play MP3 CD's?


I have had similar problems in the past - on one computer discs burned using nero were unreliable but using Windows Media Player they were fine and on other computers the Windows programme was useless and produced unreliable inconsistent results.

I suggest you experiment with different burning software and maybe suspect the drive you are using might be past it's best.
I have several cd players in my vehicles and around my home. Only a couple of them will play all the discs and most of them are very choosy and will only read premium price shop bought discs and it is a waste of time trying to play a discount store or freebie disc, or many of my computer burned discs.

I don't know what the differences are - maybe it is the software or the power of the laser burning the disc or the sensitivity of the reading laser, but there are many differences in there somewhere. The situation is very frustrating...

It wont play dvds!!! Help!!! Panasonic SC-HT520


You can try a CD/DVD Cleaner Disk ($3-$5). Some sell for $15, don't know if you'll get better results. If it doesn't work, then you have a laser alignment issue that needs calibrating. The labor is likely to cost more than a new DVD player.

Disney dvd player wont play movies (dvd) but plays music (cd) fine


Might be the type of movie - some of them are only able to play "G" ratings. Try this: click <play> 1234 <play> It will likely unlock the dvd that is in and will begin to play. You will have to do the 'code' each time, or there's an unlock program you can purchase.

Maybe your "play once" option or "repeat" option is activated, try and check it and get it back to normal play...
