Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

Panasonic SC-PM41. The multi changer jammed with a CD in tray 2, I opened up the unit and managed to removed the CD as it had gone out the back of the tray but the tray is now staying out. At least the radio works now as before nothing would even go at all. Would it be advisable to replace the tray or can the tray be fixed. Regards Bob Braid

This can be fixed, but the method of doing this involves the rebuilding of the CD loading mechanism. This should be done by a Panasonic authorized service center. There is a specific way to build and align this mechanism. There was also an engineering modification to this mechanism to prevent problems as well.

DVD changer is jammed on my Panasonic Sa-pt770 Receiver


if you have 2 tiny screw drivers, if not, the tips of a butter knife might be skinny enough, you can try to insert them a wee bit into both sides of the tray and pry outward, carefully of course, and unjam the tray

The only solution you can do is open the unit, maybe the track rail is jam. If ever you open already the unit push the tray outside and push back inside so it will align again. Hope it will helps. Whatever the result feel free to ask.

We have the RCA RS2767i Home Stereo with 5-disc changer and ipod dock. The CD Tray won't eject or shuffle...everything else works fine. It seems the disc tray isn't responding to anything. We read in the...


Let me respond with a possible solution although I'd bet that both of you already tried these.

The reason I checked into this is because I'm looking for a new mini system. I happen to be at Target and they only had 2 models - this one and a SONY. I certainly didn't want to buy the RCA given these problems, so I asked the salesperson, who seemed to have some knowlege.

As far as opening the tray on top, there is a button to push right under the tray. The button has an icon of a triangle on it. This seems to be somewhat of a standard icon for opening the tray or ejecting a CD (my car's CD has the same icon for ejecting a CD).

As far as only being able to get 3 CD's out, there is another button under the tray marked "disc skip". This rotates the tray. When you open the tray, you can only get to 3 of the CD's. When you push disk skip, it rotates the tray one position, so you can get the 4th one out. Another push and now you can get the 5th one.

Sometimes my CD changer doesn't shuffle the disks. If I only have 1 CD or DVD in it and push the tray open button, the disk stays in the unit and the tray revolves to an intermediate position. I push the button to put the tray back and try disc skip; that usually works.

If your problems are not solved per above, then I definitely do NOT want to get this.

5CD changer SA-Ak640 will not open disc trays just diplays "CHGR ERR" is locked on disc 5


The loading mechanism has jammed somehow. When powered on, the unit attempts to get to a known position. If that fails, the message you indicate is displayed. The only way to resolve this is to dis-assemble the unit and rebuild the mechainsm. This should NOT be attempted without the service manual. There is a particular way to re-assemble these so that the gearing is correct. There are small gears and levers that need to be aligned properly. Also, there may be a broken lever or gear that needs to be replaced. I have rbuilt a number of these and the parts (if needed) are cheap (<$4 total).

I wold suggest that you bring this to an authorized Panasonic service center.

My pioneer XV HTD1 home theater system dvd/cd drawer/changer will not open when i try to open it it reads locked on the screen. how can i unlock this please?


Had this problem yesterday.......was getting v. frustrated. My good lady suggested removing the cover, so I did, when she wasn't looking. Turns out that two DVDs had come off the changer and were jamming the drawer. One was Stuart Little III which my girls had been looking for for months. Took the opportunity to bin that 'course, then told the wife that I'd managed to fix the player "Needed the reverse polarity torque resetting pet".
"So in other words I was right, a DVD was jamming it?" she said smugly.

Jammed CD tray system


You may have a disk that fell out of tray onto lower mechanism. Be careful when disassembling mechanism as they have timing gears that are positioned to perform certain functions

The CD changer for my stereo (SA-PM193)jammed when I was changing from one CD to another. It looked like a CD was crooked, and I pulled it out. Then the tray wouldn't go back, so I pulled each tray except...


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.
