Page 58 describes screwing the faceplate to the head, with 1 screw. If this was done without properly adjusting/aligning the faceplate to the head then the screw will need removed for proper alignment and then fastened with the screw again.
 
Pages 56, 57 and 58 cover the proper installation which impliedly requires truing up the head with the frame/casing. If the head is not installed properly it is possible that the faceplate movement may be restricted and not be able to be properly adjusted.
 
Page 61 of the owners manual list the following error codes that should be seen if the problem was related to a malfunction of the mechanism and not the CD hanging on the faceplate.
 
Error 77: The unit is malfunctioning for some reason.
 
➪ Press the reset button on the unit. If
 
the "Error 77" code does not disappear,
 
consult your nearest service center.
 
Mecha Error: Something is wrong with the disc
 
magazine. Or the unit is malfunctioning for
 
some reason.
