I called panasonic and they told me to do a hard reset on the system it seems to have worked on mine. Hold the power button continually while you unplug and replug the unit.

If thhis happens quite often , and does not depend on the media, then it is usually a dirty lens problem. The lens is dirty or scratched and sometimes cannot read CD TOC (table of content).

If this happens only on reocrded CDs , try changing the media used. For example if you used +R, try with -R.

If this happens on all media, then try cleaning the lens with a lens cleaner CD or blowing some canned air on the lens.

This is straightforward. You have to ensure that the disk is stopped by pressing the square symbolled button then press disk skip once or twice and open the tray. Presto (if it is working correctly)

The answer is yes you do. The replacement laser pickup assembly has 2 motors already fixed to it so the pegs in the suspension have to be removed (2 off) and it is best to prise open the split in the receptacle to facilitate this without damage.Then 3 screws on the pcb need unscrewing and after the solder has been removed on the motors the boards will come apart.

Can you hear a motor running?
If yes then the belt to the turntable has come off or broken.
