Re: cd player fault quick fix any one?
You can do a few things to see what may happen.
Check the spindle height. The platters sometimes slip down the shaft, or the spindle motor bearing drops and the platter gets closer to the lens.
check that the spindle motor has not become lazy and "poling". give it a few spins. then try to read a disc again.
Clean the laser lens with a cotton wool bud moist with windex glass cleaner. Then "polish the lens with a dry one.
the spindle motor top bearing is worn and the payer mistracks as the armature moves about under the changing drive conditions. Makes the player mistrack and skip. More likely to happen at the start of a disc, because the disc is spinning fastest whilst reading the TOC.
A drop of light machine oil from a syringe oiler can help the bearing to spin an not produce the knock. Only a short term fix to give the motor a "lube". Once the oil leaches out of the worn bearing the problem will return. I have run motors immersed in an oil bath to rejuvenate them before... but better to replace it anyway if its suss at all. Good luck, You could bump my profile by giving me a "FixYa" rating for my sharing my "knowhow". Any problems check back with me here.

Is your sub powered (amplifier built-in)? If so, connect your MP3 player directly to the sub input and see if you hear audio. If you do hear audio, check for cable problems from Panasonic to sub input. If the sub is unpowered then it's either the speaker wiring, an intermittent sub and/or your Panasonic at fault.
if you have 2 tiny screw drivers, if not, the tips of a butter knife might be skinny enough, you can try to insert them a wee bit into both sides of the tray and pry outward, carefully of course, and unjam the tray
Your machine is not reading the disc. This can be caused for several reasons. The cd players lens may have a film of dust preventing it from reading. Try a lens cleaner CD. This is about the only thing you can do without getting into the internals of the unit. If you are electronically savvy, I can talk you through some more diagnostics, but generally this will mean replacing parts to fix the unit. If the Lens cleaner does not fix the problem, you may need to take the unit to a Panasonic repair guy for a quote. .

Does it try to read the CD's are they spinning, if so it may need the laser lens cleaning. Or the rails that the little sledge that the laser moves backwards and forwards on may need cleaning and regreasing.
