Question about JVC TH-A9 System

1 Answer

Playing dvd's concerning a JVC TH-A9...Recently when i load a DVD the disc spins about two times then stops spinning... the readout says READING but the DVD (nor CD)isn't spinning... nontheless it doesn't play the CD or DVD. Everything else is working fine. I don't think the motor is bad becauase the DVD will start spinning, there is no drag or bind in the motor, it just stops spinning... perhaps the signal telling it to spin is being disrupted? Is there something I can do or a recomendation of someplace that can fix this without ripping me off? I've already found a PDF explaining how to reset the unit, made no change...Tim@BentFabrications.com

Re: playing dvd's

The laser lens in your player might be dirty or failing. Try the following solutions: Clean the laser lens with a DVD player lense cleaning disc. Lense cleaning discs are available at many electronics retail store. Sorry i can't help you more. P.S. please use line breaks between paragraphs and one "dot" at the end of a sentence is enough.

When you insert a dvd it says PAL DISK


PAL is the format of the dvd and there are two main formats for a dvd and they are PAL or NTSC. The NTSC format is mostly used for the United States, and the PAL format is used more in Europe and Asia. An older dvd player will have the format options in the setup menu for the dvd player, and from the setup menu on the tv screen the dvd player can be set to play the PAL dvd's. However if that is not the problem and the dvd player no longer can tell a PAL from a NTSC format then the dvd player either needs a serious lens cleaning or it has a malfunction. Also, the back of the cover for the dvd should say if it is PAL or NTSC.

Hi,
Please put few drops of WD-40 on spindle motor shaft that sound not spin smoothly.
Spindle motor is located in middle of dvd mechanism that holds and spins disc.
If that does not solve your problem, replace optical block.
Let me know if you need optical block part number.
Thanks.

JVC TH-C30 dvd movies skip


Check your formatting on the DVD recorder, you need to finalize the disk to be playable on "any" player. That should solve the issue. Your JVC is looking for specific code as it reads the disc, when it's missing or not understood by your JVC it will either stop play or skip over it's interperated missing info. Hope this helps

Tempremental playing dvds


In response to your jvc-a75r DVD player, sometimes the solution might be less complex than it may appear. Had the same problem with my Samsung s321,the machine refused to read DVD's but would play CD's no problem. Simply opened up the cover(usually)4-6 small screws, and found my dog's hair inside of the player covering the laser eye.Electrostatic ionization attracts dust,etc. into the player remarkably well sometimes. Carefully used a cotton swap to remove debri. PLayerworked fine afterwards ...Good luck!

Home theater won't start playing DVD


If a disc will not spin, A- the laser may not be focusing on the disc, as it must do this before it will spin and read the TOC. ( table of contents) B- you could have a fault in the spindle motor circuit or the motor could be bad. You will need to find an authorized servicer if you do not understand solid state repairs. Good Luck PS please dont forget to rate this.
