Question about Panasonic SC-AK330 Shelf System

1 Answer

Panasonic SA-AK330 A couple of days ago, after pausing for an extended period, the CD would not play, then be able to read CDs. After shutting off and unplugging overnight it worked fine for most of the day, then stopped and began giving a NO DISC message. After opening the unit up, cleaning and such it worked for awhile, then stopped playing again. I had researched this site and decided to check the motor. After extended play, the unit stopped again. I opened it up and the CD was not spinning. I started the disc spinning with a pencil eraser and it spun on up. I suspect the motor is getting weak and will soon go out completely. Any suggestions? I am pretty adept, mechanically. Is this something relatively easy to change out? Thanks for any advice.

Error f61 on my panasonic sa-ak330

The f61 code is believed to be an amplifier circuit fault, but in reality it more often than not turns out to be a problem with a jammed up motor elsewhere(fan, cd changer motor, cassette motor). For me it was a jammed up cd changer. I simply disconnected the control for the changer and operation resumed as normal.

Hello! I own the Panasonic SA-HT692, lately I have been unable to listen to cd's due to a "clicking" sound the player makes while attempting to read the disc(s). I have cleaned out the disc...

The clicking noise is the optical unit trying to read the disc. When its working normally the CD spin's and the system reads the table of content ( info: on the CD ) and the disc stops till you give the next command , e.g PLAY etc. Now when the laser beam is weak due to dust on the lens or age, the unit starts to hunt for the CD by popping the len up and down trying to focus the laser beam to get a strong reflection. This constant up and down movement is the clicking sound you are hearing.
Either unit has dust on the lens or is due for replacement ( if it has done more than 500 / 750 hours ).

My Panasonic SA-HT75 won't read any DVD/CD discs

The laser has failed. They all go this way. Throw it away and don't buy Panasonic next time.

Google the system for the user manual. It may help with troubleshooting. Some better receivers have a fuse protection system and there is a red button on the back to push to reset. Be sure you don't have 2nd audio or monitor selected which can turn off main speakers. Try a set of headphones if you can to see if you get audio. Good luck.
