My Panasonic tape/CD player (SA-PM193, but Panasonic's website
search says they can't find it) has jammed. I pulled out all trays
except one (#4), which is located too far back, and removed four CDs.
Cannot tell if #4 has a CD in it. Pushed # 1, 2, 3 back, but #5 won't
go all the way in; something blocks it. Rich577

This does happen with CD trays, it's quite common. I can't remember the exact mot common cause, but it's some worn out part, such as a small (plastic) cog wheel. Search on "cd tray won't open" on the internet to find a multitude of reasons, most to do with computer CD trays, but I guess the mechanism is essentially the same. These may also describe ways round the problem.
Some CD players have a small hole on the front near the tray into which poking a straightened out paperclip should enable you to open the tray by a few mm, enough to be able to pull it open in an emergency - but it's awkward to do on a frequent basis.
Running 'clean' (under, say, 1% distortion throughout th 20-20000hz range) it probably only pushes 10 watts/channel. Once an amp is taxed beyond it's clean abilities it will start to distort, badly, and distortion will kill speakers and maybe the amp itself.
Hi. Got the very same problem. At christmas I had loaded two cd's in one of the racks. I used needlenose pliers as well and pulled each of the 5 trays out (well past their runners). Tried to dismantle the unit with the 3 screws on each side, but gave up. When I turn the power off and on and do a cd check the "hello" flashes then nothing, tried cd/change power button and basically everything else. All I can say is go easy on the unit as I was to forceful an now think i've ruined it. I'm gutted as this was a great mini hi-fi and has served me well. Best of luck with ur Panasonic, cheers.
Hi, I have a Panasonic SA-ak25 system. I played one cd then inserted a second. When the second cd had finished it ejected but the first cd is still in the player, When i try to eject it the lights start to flash and it always stops on no (4) can anybody help. Bob.
The CD loading mechanism needs to be rebuilt. Hopefully when you pulled out the trays, nothing was broken inside. Assuming it only needs to be retimed, you can expect to pay the local labor rate. If you broke any of the gears, the parts souldn't exceed $15 or so. Most of the gears and parts are rugged. Look for a Panasonic authorized service center for the repair.
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.
