Your Panasonic stereo will have to be disassembled to access the CD drive. REMOVE POWER BEFORE DISASSEMBLY! Be sure to read and heed the warning about exposure to the laser before attempting maintenance. The tracking mechanism may need cleaning before it is lubricated. For lubrication, I have used silicone spray (the kind used to unstick windows) applied to a cotton swab and then applied to the mechanism tracks.
Could be a CD defect, but probably just dust inside. Try canned air, or connect IPOD after you convert CD's to MP3's or other player to AUX port as a connector as a work a around. Splicers available online if you already have a TV connected.
If this is under warranty just take it in and get it repaired. If so, I feel sorry for the technician who must fix it.
If it is not under warranty, just RUN, run as fast as you can away from this machine. Panasonic made several models with this same mechanism in it and they all have major problems. They are the hardest CD mechs to repair. A mechanical nightmare. Most places will just replace the entire mech, but that would make the repair cost about $150. It may be better to just get a new one.
Your problem is a very common one for these. I am very sorry you got stuck with Panasonic's worst CD player ever. I work at an authorized Panasonic repair center, I am being totally honest with you about this. I really do feel bad for you. How could you know that this design was the worst they ever made? You couldn't! This is the CR16 mech (that's what panasonic named it) yo ucan call any authorized Panasonic service center and ask somebody who fixes them if they have ever heard of that mech and I would be shocked if they had anything good to say about them.
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.
GG My kids had a PlayStation 2 that did this and so did my AIWA 3 CD player. The solution for the PlayStation was to remove the cover use alcohol and clean the lens of the laser reader. They get dust on them and simply cannot read. The AIWA required replacement of the laser which cost almost as much as the unit and didn't last 6 months.
