Question about Panasonic SC-AK44 CD Shelf System

Open Question

CD Player My CD player on my Panasonic SC-AK44 stopped working. As the HiFi is out of warranty, and it's usually cheaper to buy a new one, I thought I'd have a look inside myself. The first problem that occurred was I would put a CD in tray 1, then change to tray 2 to insert another CD, and the one I put in Tray 1 popped out. The same thing happened when I opened the other 3 trays as well. Then I managed to get a CD stuck inside. When I tried to open the tray, it wouldn't come out, and was making a sound as if it was caught on something, or something was in the way. I have the system opened, got the CD out, and tried to re-assemble the CD player, but I have a couple of items that i'm not sure where they go, so I am looking for maybe a diagram that would show me how it should look, so I can make sure I have put everything back where it should be. Any/all help appreciated!!!

SOURCE: dvd tray will not open

Sounds like it's jammed it self up, if you got finger nails try pulling the front on the dvd drive as you push the open button, otherwise look for a little tool of some sort to wedge in the front of the dvd drive to give it alittle movement as you press the open button, it may need a bit, just be careful not to break it lol , if still no luck unscrew the sides and back if it has screws at the back , lift the top off , and push the dvd drive from in there , that will atleast get the disk out, and lets hope solve future problems ,

SOURCE: disc tray 1 is blinking with 2 ovals around it, tray not in right Panasonic SA-HT680

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.

SOURCE: DVD trays out - Panasonic SA-PM39D

there are very tricky mechanical devices that detect when the trays are closed and in what position they are in
A gear or mechanical piece is not in correct order or not functioning properly and will need intense studying to determine which position they all should be in at door closed , laser mech. position , standby position
can you upload a photo of the inside of the cd mechanism?

SOURCE: cd tray won't open

get it serviced as it happens due to the old band or ring kinda thing in the tray which aids in opening of it.

My Panasonic SC-AK44 won't read my disc in my 5 disc player. I have cleaned the laser carefully it played the discs, I went to put the discs on Radom, now the disc player won't read my discs again.

You will have to clean it again. But when you do so also check the rest of the mechanism for dust. You can get a special spray can of dust blaster (from Amazon) that will help remove the stuff!

Presumably when the mechanism switches the discs, it dislodges dust particles!

It's possible the laser assembly got damaged or dirty.. Inside the back cover of your users manual is a procedure to protect against that. Trying to clean the laser yourself would possibly lead to more damage as they are protected from view even when the units outer cover are off. I no longer actively repair electronics, but I can tell you a repair costs more after a customer attempt at correction than the original failure. Lasers are finely positioned mechanisms. I would suggest professional service.

Cd player stop playing... disc, data or it simply keeps searching for the tracks on the cd. How can this be fixed?

Try cleaning the lens with a CD lens disk cleaner, see if that rectifies the problem. Hifi systems are notorious for dust buildup being an enclosed system with an exposed cd drive deck.
