Question about Panasonic SC-HT730 System
I've had this system for over a year and now when I put in a dvd, "CHANGE" appears on the dvd display and nothing works after that. I then power it off and it takes a few seconds to shut down. When I power it back on the dvd display says, "INIT". Again, nothing works. I try to open the tray and nothing happens until I power off and on again. I am completely baffled. I called Panasonic and they absolutely could not help. Hopefully you can. Thanks.
I had the same problem with my unit too. I tried to reset the unit to no avail. I took it to a recommended panasonic repair shop where they informed me it would probably be $200-250 to repair. My suggestion, since the product is actually not user freindly anyway is to throw the junk in the recycle bin, and not not purchase anymore PANASONIC products, due to thier lack of product support. My unit was barely 2 years old, and I certainly would expect more bang for my buck. Since all the other components of the system were still operable, I attempted to buy and replace only the changer, which they would not do. I had always been happy with panasonic products in the past, but in todays market, they are obviously not interested in repeat business.

First, try re-initializing the main unit: While stopped and ?DVD/CD? is the source, press and hold STOP (the small solid square on the unit AND [>10] on the remote control until ?Initialized? disappears from the television. Turn the unit off, unplug it, and turn it on again. Make sure that cd mode is off by Pressing [SHIFT]+[CD MODE] and try your DVD player again. (Make sure your discs are clean, and try several to make sure that is not the problem) Let us know how it works for you, and if we can help you in any other way. Best regards, nightdiver
