Question about Panasonic CQ-C7103U CD Player
The CD player as of recently (it's an awesome radio) has begun doing this thing when I attach the faceplate, it clicks in and everything and it turns on, but the display stays blank, the SRC is the only thing lit up, but it still plays audio.
Problem is, it won't let me change tracks, volume etc, unless I press the center of the faceplate in, causing it to light up, and say welcome. OR it WILL work and every time i press a button it reconnects (i.e. says welcome again) but doesn't cut out the sound, meaning it will play seamlessly throughout the welcome message. This has resulted in me assuming its a problem with the metal 'jack' or 'port' that attaches the face to the radio is loose or bent. Or maybe the whole face itself is barely bent or something?
It looks fine otherwise and works fine too, just gets annoying everytime. Just wondering if theres a way to fix it, or where to get it fixed?
You can order a new faceplate from Panasonic, if that is the problem. (You may find one on ebay, too?) Carefully check the connection before spending anything, as I wouldn't want to suggest spending on something that isn't broken. If you have electronic skills, check the internal connections from the jack to the internal board and every other connection. Also look for cracks in the board. If found, a light coat of solder can fix that up fairly well, and not cost anything.
Of course, this is all a guess, and I would verify everything yourself before doing anything. Good Luck.
