Question about Panasonic 5 DVD/CD Micro System with MP3, SC-PM91D Shelf System

2 Answers

Panasonic 5 DVD/CD Stereo System with MP3 SC-PM91D - the remote stopped working.

Nothing happens when I try to use the remote to operate this stereo system. The batteries in the remote are good and it seems to be sending some sort of signal as the stereo displays a message "REMOTE MODE1" when any button on the remote is pressed.

This worries me a lot as many functions are ony accessible using the remote. I do not want to disconnect the stereo from the mains yet as I will not be able to even set the time if it resets.

The troubleshooting guide in the manual does not say how to deal with such problems.

Can you help me?

    A couple of days on since I posted my problem with a remote on here I got really frustrated and decided to seek help elsewhere. The only response I got from here was an "offer" to "try our premium assistance plan" (and fork out $9.99...).

    I have managed to get in touch with someone very competent and helpful. And the problem is now SOLVED!!! The only thing I had to do was hold down ENTER and 1 buttons for 5 seconds!!!

    The remote is working now and the guy suggested this simple solution without even having a look at my stereo or remote. Nor did he redirect me to Panasonic Customer Support. He just listened to me while I described the problem, and then offered this solution. The whole conversation lasted a mere 1 minute and 28 seconds...

    That's highly comendable efficiency. The guys know their job! These are their contact details:

    The problem with my Panasonic SA-PMD91Music system is that the cd changer does not work.

    It happened one day while it was working fine, suddenly when I wanted to switch from one CD to another with all five CDs in their trays respectively the door of the CD unit would not shut fully and the display would read "PLEASE WAIT" which would not dissappear.

    After trying to rotate the disk tray gear manually (GENTLY) I was able to get one cd out.

    Now the door of the tray shuts but the cd does not work.

    Please suggest a remedy as soon as possible.

    Thanks& regards,

I have a panasonic SA PM91D stereo system and have lost the remote moving recently. Does anyone know a manual way to select and program radio/tuner stations without the remote.?

I think that you haven't the operating manual to your Panasonic system. I've the manual to your system, but I can't send it to you by this site, as it does not allow me to upload any files by it. If you send your email address by Fixya comment box, I'll send a copy of it to you by return mail, which have all details you need. OK.

You can buy a universal remote that should work with your stereo - but it may not solve the problem.
If the latching system that hols the OFF setting is broken the remote software will probably not overide it,

Will not play dvd, trouble code h07, Is this an expensive fix or something I could do myself.

out of all the test equipment in my work shop i always laugh at the repair that can only be handled by the hand. the fault is a stuck tracer arm all you need to do is when loading a dvd slap the side of the player this will free up the arm.

please let me know how you went
