Recorder Player Problems? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
That is probably a fatal error of some sort by the sound of it, I am sorry to say to start with... but I am looking up the error and may have further advice, which I will post in a minute or two.
Have you tried unplugging it and cleaning the fan of all dust, then trying it again?
Not just the internal fan, but also the cooling fan in back, I presume.
Check all fuses also.
How old is your Panasonic player device, please?
OK. That is the sensible way to proceed.
The error can either be owing to insufficient cooling owing to
A. fan failure to spin, or not spinning fast enough
B. dust in system or on heat-sink (vaned metal element) that impedes cooling
C. power amplifier slightly or not-so-slightly defective in a way that makes it heat up.
Let me know how it goes, please. Thanks.
Check all connections, if it was moved and that seems to have caused the problem. Something may have come loose or been joggled loose.
Also if dust in it was stirred up, that might be impeding proper operation... a thorough cleaning of the interior might help.
Keep me posted. Thanks.
OK. Check on that, all details, interior as well as exterior, I advise.
Then most likely (if the dented-in power-cord-jack region is not enough to have damaged its operation) the device will need repair, I am sorry to say - the power amplifier might have to be replaced, but perhaps some other fault would have to be addressed by a competent electronics technician, if it was indeed handled roughly.
Another expert here. I do agree with the other expert about checking the system.
From what I can see, There are a number of connections behind the main unit. If possible, I would like you to try the following:-
1. Power off the system, disconnect every cable behind the main unit except the power cord.
2. Power on the main unit and let me know if it powers ok. If yes, then try to start connecting one cable at a time while observing the screen. Make sure you power off between connection to ensure you will not be damaging anything else during this process.
What my experience, there might be a short or a fault component internally or externally. This process of elimination will get us closer to where the problem is. If it is internally, definitely, I will suggest taking the system to a local repair shop for further evaluation and repairs.
