Our church has a SA-PM53 stereo system. It has worked fine for several years, but suddenly it doesn't. It will say," No disc," thoigh there is one there. Can this be fixed?
Make: Panasonic CD stereo system
Model: SA-PM 53
Hello, thanks for contacting us. My name is XXXXX XXXXX X'XX try to assist you with your issue.Some discs are not recognized by some players.Make sure you are inserting a CD and not a DVD and/or BluRay that look exactly the same but they are coded differently.The best way of testing a CD Player like yours is by inserting an *original* (not copied) standard *music only* CD. On its top side it should read "COMPACT DISC, DIGITAL AUDIO" in a logotype like thishttps://forum.solidworks.com/servlet/JiveServlet/showImage/2-197826-11399/logo_compact_disc.pngIf the Logotype is not there, or says a different thing, or there are other logos beside this one, you should first try again with one that *only* says that.Let me know what happens.Best.
Tried a new, original CD this morning - still get "no disc."
Can you see or hear the disc spinning inside?You may need to take it to service...If you tell me your location I can recommend a repair shop. Best.
location - Metter, GA 30439
I cannot find any decent repair shop closer than Macon GA.I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX buy a new one such as this onehttp://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/682125-REG/Sony_CMT_FX300I_CMT_FX300i_Micro_Hi_Fi_System.htmlThey will send it free of charge to Metter and it is worth $98.44.Taking it to Macon, waiting for a repair budget, repair it (f it is possible which we don't know) and then go back to get will probably cost you a couple of hundred dollars including service fees and just gas for the car.If you still want to try and get it repaired it, let me know and I'll recommend someone from Macon to help you out.Best.
