Panasonic SA-AK17 MASH stereo system

I just bought this used, I have no manual with it. It plays great and the speakers are very clear. When I turn the system off "Good bye" flashes across the display, and it shuts off for about 20 -30 seconds, then "HELLO" comes back on and the lights start flashes on the display background and the lights across the top for the cd disc flash green back and forth. Question: Is this supposed to do this or should it shut off and stay off ?? Thanks for any help.

That demo mode thing is painfully annoying. With mine, I had to hold the 'display/demo' button in for about 1 second and then the words "NO DEMO" appeared. That fixed it.

Usually if something is shutting down as the volume is turned up, it is caused by a bad speaker. Try disconnecting one speaker at a time, and see if you can turn up the remaining speakers until you find the one that is causing the problem.

My Harman Kardon go play II will stop working just after just a few months.

If you bought this you this new, take it right back to the place of purchase, you still must have warranty and I would use it asp other wise you will be stuck with a unit that will get worse. This is clearly a manufacture defect.

When turn the system on it usaully says hello and when you turn the system off it says good bye but now it skips hello and go strate to good bye and turns off please help me

do check if the mains power is at steady voltage by the use of a voltmeter.
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Its usually not a fault that you will see unless somethings burnt up. This is solid state electronics and you dont see this stuff go bad. But in the meantime try disconnecting the speakers and see if it still goes into shutdown and at the same time have a dc multimeter attached to the speaker outputs. If the unit comes on and you dont see any DC at all or very very little B+ on both speaker terminal sets then you may have a defective speaker. If you do see dc then thats why the protections comming on so you dont blow out your speakers. If you dont have any equipment or dont have any electronics experience I would then take the unit to a repair person for an estimate. Good Luck

We just bought a 1974 ami, plugged it in and it pl...


If your Rowe Ami is indeed a 1974 model it will be a TI-2 or CTI-1 (chest style jukebox) this era of jukebox uses a search unit to push out selected pins on the unit A side and B side for the mechanism to search for and play.
If the search unit is pushing out the correct pins but the mechanism is not scanning to select those selections, it could be that the mechanism is skipping over the pins or it could be that the search unit is not pushing out any pins at all with the search unit motor just spinning around.

If you are in the UK then I could help you.
If you are in the USA try posting a request for help on or on
