Question about CD Players
We were given this 5 CD changer with no instructions. It plays one CD then stops - how do we get it to play all 5 CD's in a row without stopping?

If this is under warranty just take it in and get it repaired. If so, I feel sorry for the technician who must fix it.
If it is not under warranty, just RUN, run as fast as you can away from this machine. Panasonic made several models with this same mechanism in it and they all have major problems. They are the hardest CD mechs to repair. A mechanical nightmare. Most places will just replace the entire mech, but that would make the repair cost about $150. It may be better to just get a new one.
Your problem is a very common one for these. I am very sorry you got stuck with Panasonic's worst CD player ever. I work at an authorized Panasonic repair center, I am being totally honest with you about this. I really do feel bad for you. How could you know that this design was the worst they ever made? You couldn't!
This is the CR16 mech (that's what panasonic named it) yo ucan call any authorized Panasonic service center and ask somebody who fixes them if they have ever heard of that mech and I would be shocked if they had anything good to say about them.
let me know if you need any more help.

hi i heared about you cd changer problem. i have a same hi-fi system an i have the same problem. it seems it appears when you hit.move or turn upside down the cd changer. you can solve it by unscrewing the top of the hi-fi with a regullar screw there should be 5 screws on the back and 4 on the sideways after this take the top off by pulling it upwards then you should plug in the hi-fi at the outlet and try to change the cd if it doesn't work try seeing if any of the cd is stuck in there if it is try to push it with your fingers but watch your fingers and do not touch any metallic part if in doesnt work like this eithertray looking if the cd-reader is stuck in any way......try to free it with your fingers but watch your fingers too if it doesnt work try to contact me at :email@example.com il help you with any sound-sistem problem :D ;)

Could be a CD defect, but probably just dust inside. Try canned air, or connect IPOD after you convert CD's to MP3's or other player to AUX port as a connector as a work a around. Splicers available online if you already have a TV connected.
