Question about Panasonic SC-PM91D System

Open Question

Power on but screens says wait....

I just moved the system from upstairs to down and now when I turn it on the screen says "TRAY INIT" and then goes to "Wait" and none of the buttons work, completely disabled? I read the manuel that says it could be prohibited because of a disk...any suggestions?

SOURCE: dvd tray will not open

Sounds like it's jammed it self up, if you got finger nails try pulling the front on the dvd drive as you push the open button, otherwise look for a little tool of some sort to wedge in the front of the dvd drive to give it alittle movement as you press the open button, it may need a bit, just be careful not to break it lol , if still no luck unscrew the sides and back if it has screws at the back , lift the top off , and push the dvd drive from in there , that will atleast get the disk out, and lets hope solve future problems ,

SOURCE: disc tray 1 is blinking with 2 ovals around it, tray not in right Panasonic SA-HT680

I had a jammed disc that was causing this same error message. To remove the jammed disc, remove the top by removing the screws and then you can remove the stuck/jammed discs. For the Panasonic SC-PT750 there are 7 screws, three small silver ones on the back, then 4 black ones, two on each side, all philips head. Once you have that off, gently pry it off starting from the back, the cover is actually hinged into the front plastic piece of the player.

I've just spent the last 3 nights trying to fix that same issue with my player. I ended up pulling out the dvd tray assembly, and making sure there wasn't anything broken inside or obstructing other pieces. Come to find out, my 1 year old had pulled on one of the trays and it pulled the tray off it's tracks. After that, it would just go to "init please wait" forever. I pulled the side track cover off and aligned the tracks manually. Everything had to be absolutely perfect or else you'd get nothing. After the fact, I realized that there were two holes in the bottom of the player that you can take a spare small gear (which is attached to the plastic cover on top of the dvd tray assembly) and stick it in there and manually adjust the tray positions to make sure everything is aligned properly. After messing with it three days, it ended up being quite simple to fix. Everything works like a charm now. If you need details, feel free to email me.

SOURCE: Tray won't open!

Hi, not being too familiar with this model ( i.e. whether a single disc or 5 disc changer). it sounds like the CD player section is trying to find home position and will not continue until it has done so. It is very likely that there is a disc in the mechanism and depending how competent you are with a screwdriver, you may be able to release the disc either by removing the top cover or check on the underside of the machineto see if there is a hole in the bottom where you can wind the cd mechanism to the eject position.

I am having problems with my SA-HT670 it is reading error code INIT and then WAIT. The 5 disc changer will no open and close properly


The CD loading mechanism is not resetting properly. When powered on, the entire mechanism goes through a startup alignment sequence. This is to be sure that the unit is in a known position and state. The init indication is for the "electonics" reset portion, the wait message should be present while you hear the mechanism move. The most common cause of this is a slipping belt or a jammed CD. Be cautious about trying to repair this yourself. It is easy to damage the gearing inside or to get it out of aligment. There is a good possibility that this can be repaired with either no parts or with a $3-$5 belt.

Panasonic SA-HT680 Home theater problem


Try these steps to reset the unit. I got these from the Panasonic Cust. Service # 1800-211-7262
1. Unplug the unit power.
2. Wait 2-3 mins before replugging the unit.
3. Turn it on.
4. If the display shows INIT / PLEASE WAIT, Press and HOLD the Tune Mode (STOP) button on the main unit. At the same time press #10 (Channel button) in the remote control. They have to be pressed & held simultaneously for atleast 5 seconds. Wait till the INIT / Please Wait display disappears.
5. Once the message disappears, RESTART the main unit by pressing the POWER button OFF / ON.
6. If it does not work, try several times. If it does not work, contact a local repair shop (call them to find out a repair shop near you). If the repair shop wont do it for you, call them back - thats what they told me.

I can not eject the disc tray


I too had a similar problem with my DHC FL7D. The front moving panel would not move up. The screen used to say 'please wait' endlessly whenever I pressed the DVD button. I thought the drive belt might have got cut. There is a drive belt for the front panel to move upwards and downwards. Since that was intact, I disconnected the front panel from the main body to access the DVD drive system. I had to disconnect many cables and PCBs to do so. Then I opened the DVD compartment and removed all the DVDs which were stuck and re-alligned all the disc trays to its original state. I checked if all the drive belts inside the DVD compartment, it was ok. Also I tried moving the laser lens assembly to check if it was moving. Since there was no problem I closed the system. <br />After I switched on it worked again . I think it might be to do with the fact that the disc trays might have been stuck for some reason or may be the there was a software glitch.<br />
