Question about Panasonic SC-AK18 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

The 5-CD player component of my stereo reads out "Disc not read" from all 5 slots, no matter which way I load the CD. It would not accept my CD cleaner disk. The system was in unprotected storage for several years - - is it worth the money to take it in for cleaning? ssterling@neamb.com

There are many reasons why it fails to operate correctly. When electronics lay around for a long period of time unprotected from temperature changes and climate conditions; the interior parts tend to expand and contract; therefore become useless. If moisture invades sensitive circuit boards and electrical components, the resistance levels change and many times cause problems. Additional, heads on a CD/DVD player become coated with debris and can no longer read the data on a disc. They can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and air dried, which may work for you. Clean it yourself and save the money.

All this cd systems have the same problem. If you're using burned cd's sometimes they don't work so you need to close the session after burning in your burning program. If you're using original cd's it means that the device needs to be cleaned up (especially the lens) because the structure of a 5 cd combo device gets very dusty after a while. Also from my experience after cleaning it put a cd in each deck (even if it's off) so they could prevent it getting dustier again. Hope it helps, good luck!!

Could be the classic dirty lense syndrom... If you know how to get to it, expose the laser lense, and gently brush any accumulated dust/dirt from it. There might be multiple slots, but only 1 lense. If you have a cd cleaner available you might want to try that out first, it doesn't always do the same job, but it can save you the risk of something else happening when you open it up. Good luck

The cd player in my car is A56820, JBL, it will load and eject cf's but not read. any fixes?


Did you get all of the CDs out of the player or are any still
stuck inside the stereo? Its the part about everything working
OK until a disc changed that makes me ask.
If a disc is jammed because it didn't load properly, you won't
be able to get all your discs out.

Hello

Clean your CDs before and after playing them. Although the compact disc has a much longer lifespan than does something like a cassette tape, it can be more fragile. Scratches, dust or other damage to the data side of the CD will cause many CD players to fail to read the CD or cause the CD to skip.

Examine the type and format of the compact disc if your CD player fails to read it. Verify that your CD player can read the type of CD and the files contained on it. Just because you've burned a collection of songs to a CD, for example, doesn't mean that your CD player will be able to recognize that information. You must burn CDs in a specially formatted "Audio CD" mode to play them on a CD player, or your CD player must be able to recognize the MP3 file format. Some CD players have limitations on the type of CD they can read. Verify that your CD player can read CD-R, CD+R, CD-RW or CD+RW compact discs.

Update your CD player's driver, if your CD player is a drive connected to your computer. Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click on "Hardware and Sound" and select "Device Manager" under "Devices and Printers." Right-click the icon for your CD drive and select "Update driver software." This may solve any issues the drive was having with playing CDs.

CD player doesn't work . the door to the 6 disc changer won't even open


This happens when the disc loading mechanism becomes faulty. when this happens the mechanism fails to load the disc to the right place thereby not allowing the optical lens which is supposed to read the disc to be able to read from the disc. All you have to do is get the loading motor and mechanism serviced and checked. This should get the door to the loader to start opening and in turn solve the working issue.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

this is a typical problem with the factory stereo. usually there is nothing you can do for the Cd player, because most likely a cd got jammed and broke or bent some internal components. however try usig a credit card to help eject. insert it partially into the slot and pull out if the cd tries to come out. if this doesen't work then you will have to have the cd removed by tearing it apart. this usually ends up with at least one or two scratched cds and a deck in a million pieces.
