Question about Panasonic SC-AK220 CD Shelf System
I don't know what caused this to happen but my CDs are stuck in the system. The door used to open all the time without playing any of the Cds. When i kept closing the door it kinda "kick-start" it back into normal and I was able to play my CDs again and get them out. I put 3 of my most popular Cds in the and allowed them to play continuously and then they stop playing, the system was stuck again and now the door refuses to open when I tried to get my CDs out! When I press the open key it keeps saying "error" and when I press play it acts as though it's changing discs but it's not and you hear the noise of it getting stuck. I peered through the vents and found the cds till in their position but not moving at all. please help.

If you sure that the system supports the disc's format.. And it won't play other discs... try to clean the CD lens. If it wont help and you're NOT still under warranty you should at least open the system and look for Problems with the door opening/closing: Steps: 1. Make sure the drawer-loading belt is still tight and elastic. If not, it can be replaced with a belt obtained from an electronic-parts supplier. The replacement should be of equal or slightly greater thickness and should fit snugly but not so tightly that it strains the motor. 2. Check for broken or loose gears and have them replaced. 3. Check for obvious sources of contamination such as pet hair or foreign objects that are preventing smooth operation of moving parts. Small children have a habit of inserting items into CD players. 4. Use electronics-grade contact cleaner to clean the door-position contacts.

Could be the classic dirty lense syndrom... If you know how to get to it, expose the laser lense, and gently brush any accumulated dust/dirt from it. There might be multiple slots, but only 1 lense. If you have a cd cleaner available you might want to try that out first, it doesn't always do the same job, but it can save you the risk of something else happening when you open it up. Good luck

I had a similar problem with my sony cd changer. Took it apart it turned out to be the drive belt a 3 pound part. Got a new slightly smaller one and works well. Very easy to replace.

Tips for a great answer:
Have you opened the case?
Inside the actual cd drive unit there should be a couple of small rubberband like belts. You can try replacing them.
It may help.
If that doesn't work ,it may be time for a replacement.
I have a tendancy to hang on to old audio equipment long after it should have been replaced. It's just hard to let them go!
Good luck with it!
