Hi,

Your post/description could be indicative of:

  • a dirty lens;
  • lens cradle not moving;
  • spindle not turning.
Corrective action would involve:
  • cleaning with a CD cleaner similar to those used in computer CD ROMs;
  • opening the unit for a look & see, cleaning and reapplication of appropriate lubricant;
  • checking/repairing/replacing the motor.
The latter of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would

Incidentally, if it were just a glitch, you could try unplugging from the mains for sometime. This would hopefully reset the unit. Alternately, consult your manual for corrective/reset procedures.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

This implies the laser in the dvd can't read your disk, and says "No disk". Try cleaning the laser first, it'll look like an led. Unplug and disassemble then use a cotton bud with isopropol alcohol, or metho. If this doesn't work, the laser may be dead and it'll just be a surround sound unit then!

I have a JVC TH-S3 surround sound system and would like to know if I can l watch television in surround sound as i can watch dvd's and listen to the radio in surround sound. thanks


Yes you can get simulated 5.1 surround sound from your TV as well as radio. Just switch the JVC surround mode to Pro Logic II movies or music In some systems it will display only PLII.
Just connect the TV audio out to the JVC Aux input at the back ( red and white sockets ).

My panasonic dvd player is not playing the sound of the main character's voices on two diff. dvd's. Background noise and music is fine. The disks work on another dvd player, and other disks have no problem...


You are listening to a Dolby Digital source and you either don't have a center speaker hooked up or, it's not enabled. If you only have 2 speakers connected to a surround receiver, switch your receiver from surround to surround off. If this doesn't work, or you need more help, specify your system and how it's all hooked up.

No surround sound


if the unit has no digital dvd 5,1 input it will not play 5.1 output, unless the unit is switched into a virtual surround mode(theatre/etc) mode try with a new dvd film with a digital glassfiber cabel if it shows 5.1 on the display of the receiver. if it shows 5.1 digital surround than the end stage of your surround is blown and needs to be replaced

Surround sound from Sky +


To upmix 2-channel sound (such as that in a TV broadcast) into 5.1 sound, press AMP and then SUR. DECODE until "PL II Movie" is displayed. This will give you "cinema-like" surround sound from a 2-channel source.

You can also assign this to one of your "Scenes" by following the procedure for scene assignment on page 26 of your manual.
