Hi i have just been able to sort this problem, if your system says "NO CD" after it is inserted then the CD is not sitting right inside, solution for this is, join the philips club (free) and update the firmware and update the Gracenote software

1, insert the cd so it is in then turn it off and unplug then take another cd insert it in slowly to push the other one down a bit until it stops (may only move a couple of millimetres, you are only using the cd as it fits the slot so don’t try and insert it!!) plug the centre back in and turn the centre on, it will boot back up and eject the cd that’s still in, wait until it is fully booted and insert the cd again, that should work

OR

2, insert the cd so it is in then turn it off and unplug then you can open the product and physically push the cd down (be careful when you take the lid off as the cd will not be fully slotted down and there are a couple of cables that can pop out but they are easy to put back and obvious) Put the lid back on and plug the centre back in and turn the centre on, it will boot back up and eject the cd that’s still in, wait until it is fully booted and insert the cd again, that should work

any probs just mail back and ill help as much as i can

My jvc mx c33 will not play cd's that I burn, plays store bought ones fine. I am using Roxio NXT Pro to make my cd's on to a .cda format. The jvc mx c33 doesn't recognize the disk, just says there is


Are you closing the disc? If so are you using CRD or CRDW. If you are using CDRW it will not burn in the proper output format. If you use CDR only it should. Also try recording at a slower speed. It has helped me in the past to do so.
A great program to try is CDBurnerXP, and it's free. After you record it then put it back in and run it again, but this time just select "Disc" then from the drop down menu Disc Information [CTRL+I] and read what format you ended up with. Remove that and check a store bought disc and compare.

The dvd player wont play dvd's it will play cd's


Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.

If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

WON'T PLAY CD'S READS "NO DISC"


  • Check the disc you're using for scratches and dirt. If the disc is damaged it won't play properly, regardless of the CD player's ability to function. You can use a CD repair device like the "Disc Doctor" to repair the CD or purchase a new CD.

  • Clean the laser lens with a CD laser lens cleaning disc. CD laser lens cleaning discs can be purchased at most electronics retailers or online. Insert the laser lens cleaning disc and follow the instructions.

  • Insert a correctly-formatted, undamaged disc into your player. Listen to see if it begins to read the disc. If it continues to make no sound and gives you the same message, then the problem is probably that your disc is not spinning in the device.

  • Clean the lens while the DVD player is open. A dirty lens is most likely the cause of your no-disc error. The lens should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab.

    I ripped a CD on my computer than tried to play it on the GPX it wouldn't play but the screen said "File". What does that mean and can I get it to play a ripped CD?


    You have to burn a CD in "CD/Music" format. You can't burn it as a data CD. Which just sucks cuz doing it in CD format, you can only fit 15 or so songs on each CD. And I wasted a CD finding that out.

    HI...
    You wont be able to play any new format CDs on an old Fisher or any other older make . It 's the internal decoder logic that's needed. And older players dont have it.
    As far as top-loaders..Do a websearch . I dont know of any.

    It's most likely the draw belt that moves the drawer in/out.
    Belt is cheap but opening the unit might not be.

    CD's sound awful


    Try cleaning the lens with a CD lens cleaner. If that doesn't work, the optical pickup may be back. If tht is the case, it can be repaired but it will probably cost quite a bit (more than $100) to repair.
