Question about JVC FS-SD5 Shelf System

1 Answer

FS-SD5 Radio works. CD player does not. When you load the CD, and hit play, nothing happens. When you first load the CD it does not spin either. There's still power going through the unit, it appears as though the motor to spin the CD player is out. Potentially, maybe the circuits providing power to the motor is interrupted. Any ideas or known failures about this unit? Thanks! Kenny

    Based on Techman's advice, I've done some further investigation. The lens does not move or track against the CD. In this case, I'd assume that the laser pick-up assembly is broken.

    If my assumption is correct, does anyone know how easy or difficult it is to replace? How much does one of these go for? Should I just get a new machine?

    Thanks again!

Its a good possibility that the turntable that the cd sits on is pushed down or up from where its suppose to be as if the laser cant focus on the disc the motor wont spin.There could also be a bad spindle motor as these do go bad or the motor driver ic is defective. see if you can somehow see the lens when the disc is inserted if you can see the lens moving up and down it is one of thoses problems I described are the cause, or worse case is a defective laser Pick-up assy. Good luck. good luck

    Laser pick-up assys have gone down in price but just an example to your quiestion is that a 29.95 discman laser pickup assy cost 49.80 + shipping and + labor. See my point??

I have an AKAI radio/cd/tape player combo. For about a year I had to toggle the switch around a few times just to get the radio to come on, now I cannot get any sound at all with the cd or radio


Akai used to produce quality gear. Today in common with lots of premium manufacturers the gear is less repairable and a whole lot more disposable. This is because it is less "engineered" and more designed for cost-effective assembly.
Mechanical switches and potentiometers for instance, add weight and expense to the manufacture and shipping and they wear out or get dirty and don't work - but they can be replaced or cleaned relatively easily. Soft touch controls and electronic switching is cheaper to produce and more pleasing to some buyers but when they go wrong cleaning rarely works and repairs are beyond the usual scope of the hi-fi enthusiast, meaning expensive repair-shop costs. It is worth attempting to clean the switches if there is access and you feel adventurous.

It sounds as though you have nothing to lose. There is a wide selection of switch and electrical cleaners available, some with an added lubricant for mechanical switchgear and potentiometers though for some things a cotton bud or a slip of paper dipped in methylated spirit works well.

Good luck!

Nakamichi cd cassette player 1 not spinning discs


There's a Music Bank 7-disc player in use in my bedroom these days. Nice unit, but they used to come in for service once in a while- from what I could tell, these units don't 'park' the CD drawers on a soft power off- they simply shut down. When powered up again, they sometimes let the disc last in play slide off the tray & jam the machine. I've had no issues, as long as I always hit stop, wait for it to park, and then shut off. The analog output's sound has been very good (has a coax out as well).

CD player stopped working on Sony ICF-CD831 PSYC Clock Radio/CD P


I've been able to prolong the life on mine by doing this:

Insert the disc, then spin it by hand and quickly close the door and hit play.

It's always worth using a laser cleaner first, as it may just be dirty and stops spinning because it cannot read the disc.
