SOURCE: Fault code F498 on panasonic

as far as i understand, it is caused by dry joints - poor workmanship. Try taking the top off and pressing down on right-hand side the green circuit board with the dvd in standby. Then switch on. If that works then what i did was to take all the screws out and jiggle it then put all screws back except the one to the left of the board, next to the brown board. seems to work now. Tip found on another forum, no credit to me

SOURCE: DVD tray won't open

Do you have a problem w/ people to open and close the drive readily? Like little kids or something? B/c It sounds like ur drive motor could have worn/burned out. If that's the case, take it back to Wal-mart(if they have the same one) and exchange it. Wal-mart is an investment. ha ha.. I hope this helps.

This normally means the spindle motor is faulty.

SOURCE: cd tray won't open

get it serviced as it happens due to the old band or ring kinda thing in the tray which aids in opening of it.

Hi there. i have a panasonic dvd-s53 , the power supply ic1021 is blown up , i need to know the number please. thank you.

I am not totally sure since you may not be able to read the number on the original IC - however C0DACZH00006 appears to be one number for Panasonic IC 1021 reference. (this is for the DVD-S47 but it seems to be standard type for this series).

I suggest you contact an authorised service centre or Panasonic directly, and provide the above number IC to them - along with the DVD player model number - if this turns out to be correct, you can go ahead and order the part. Not too expensive and it is not a surface-mounted component. It is available. I also recommend that you replace all the electrolytic capacitors in the SMPS - as several may have leaked, causing the demise of the IC. Don't just replace the IC - and touch up any dodgy solder joints in this circuit.

See how you go. No power supply is irreparable.

Dvd player won't open

I had the same problem for my panasonic dvd player (ht540). Neither of the above solutions worked so I found this one on the panasonic website:

1. turn off unit by holding down the POWER button for 10 seconds.

2. unplug the power cord and wait for one minute.

3. plug the cord back in and turn on the unit

4. when the dvd begins to play, press "EJECT".

It worked for me. The site for other troubleshooting is:
