Question about Panasonic Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

Hello I have a 1976 National Panasonic SL18 record player and it seems the motor has worn out as it plays very slowly. Could you suggest what I should do - should I try and buy a new motor or can it be fixed. Thanks John

No it won't be like surround sound, but you'll have the next best thing: a nice, powerful, natural Hi-Fi sound. I have a 46 inch 1080p Sony connected to a Sony Blu-Ray and Bose Cinemate Speakers. No complicated rear speakers wiring, no awkward center speaker to hide. The only drawback is that Bose doesn't have (yet) a code to operate the Blu-ray player with the Cinemate remote control.

Hope this helps to make your decision.

If you cannot see a small tip on the needle then yes it is worn out,but you can check by rubbing your finger over the tip when the system is on,if you hear sound through the speakers then it should play the album,make sure that the weight at the back of the arm is set to keep the needle in the groove as this may be set to far back,move it forward to keep weight on the needle.

hope this helps.

SOURCE: Hotpoint fridge too cold!!

Hi John,

There had been changes in the system recently, and not all answers are being displayed.

Now I do not know where to find your original problem.

If you find any link to the thread in your old emails, copy and paste it here , so that I can track back the problem.

When fridge is freezing inside that can be caused by:

Bad temperature settings.(temp too high)
Bad climate conditions (very hot outside and fridge set to lowest temp)
Problem with evaporator system at the back of the fridge.
Faulty thermistor, not detecting when temp. is too low.
Compressor problems.

Try moving the fridge from the wall, this sort out many problems with condenser/compressor and evaporator.
If there is Ice inside also remove ice to get back to normal.

If that does not work, it is either the compressor coming to the end of its life, or a faulty thermistor.

I will try to find the original thread, I suggest to complain with fixya, we have had serious disruptins since the new Fixya system started to work.

I presume you hade cleaned the discs and the players optical lense before posting this request and also tried them on another player?

Basicaly If they do not work on other players then the discs have now failed for some reason: many budget priced discs I have come across only work for a few years.

If you have a 'spindle problem' then your laser is probably slowly moving off track. If so you should be able to record and then playback on a GOOD disc for a while.

Have lost chanel 5 and others on my panasonic dvd recorder since national retune.How do i retune my dvd recorder?

It seems others have had this problem too, but there seems to be a generic solution to it. Unplug the device from the mains and leave it without power for a few minutes. Then, reconnect your device. That should solve your problem.

Back to your question about retuning it, you have to hold the channel up and channel down buttons at the same time for a few seconds. Auto-setup should start.

Hope that helps,

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.
