Stacker Disc Storage
If another disc is selected for PB, the mechanism will release the clamped disc and store it into the rear stacker
compartment before extracting the second disc. The clamping motor reverses to release the disc into the rollers
and engage the rear stacker rollers. Meanwhile the stacker motor positions the rear stacker tray height. When
rotary encoder 1 senses the correct stacker storage tray position, the loading motor rolls the disc into the stacker
slot. Final disc location switches SW-16 and 17 determine that disc to storage tray is complete and reverses the
loading motor to disengage the disc so the tray can move to the new disc slot.
