Question about JVC FS-7000 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

CD won't spin

The CD player in my FS-7000 seems unable to muster the strength to spin. It starts to spin, moving the disc about 10 degrees, then stops. It's as though the motor can't summon the power to get up to speed. I read somewhere that the microcomputer can shut down certain functions, and that unplugging the system for a while resets it; I tried this and it did work for about 30 seconds, then the player made some pretty nasty noises, and quit. Any suggestions?

Re: CD won't spin

Im afraid the laser is worn out, or there is a power supply problem, or the spindle motoer servo curcuit is defective. If you know how to service solid state curcuits, maybe it will be worth fixing. Im sorry to say, if you do not, then most likly the repair will exceed the cost of a new unit or come close to it. Good Luck PS please do not forget to rate this thread.

My CD player keeps displaying no disk and wont play the cleaner disc, is something dirty or broken?

If it does not play the cleaner disc, just inspect whether the disc inserted in spins inside it. You can check this by open the upper cover of the player, and inserting a disc into it. If inserted disc spins inside, and the player won't read it, the fault is with its laser pickup unit, and it should be replaced with same type and number.
If the disc dos not spins, the fault is with the sled motor [the motor that spins the inserted disc], has damaged, and should be replaced. OK.

I've got a JVC FS-G5 5 disc system. With multiple disc in the unit, it tries to read the CD, yet can't seem to find anything. It gives a "no disc" readout.

Is the cd's scratched at all? If cd's are fine? Clean the lazer eye with cotton swab and alcohol. please make sure the unit is unplugged.

Help - CD won't eject! I press 'Open' on my sony CMT-EX1 system and the CD moves backwards as though it's going to eject but then it stays there, unreachable. Then the display begins to switch between...

I have the same problem and it's due to dirt!
I'm going to try using compressed air, but -
this definitely works:

:) Seriously:

tilt the cd player to a 45 degree angle (flat, basically - as if they tray were horizontal.)

I had my player for 10 or 12 years, and this problem is only coming up now. My house gets very dusty.

Also - vertical load disc players are hard to clean. X_X (inside the disc tray)

I love this stereo too!
I don't want to have to go out and buy another stereo!

Cd player does not work

The CD spins while the laser tries to focus on the disc, and that's how it knows a CD is in. It's not detecting the disc and so the CD stops. This could be simply dirt on the laser lens, and you could try using a cotton swab to gently wipe it off. If that doesn't take care of it, the laser assembly needs to be replaced. This unit cost about $200 or more if I recall, so it might be worth getting a repair estimate. If this were a typical cheap boombox it would be better to replace it.

CD player ate a CD!!

I fixed the same issue by forcibly pulling individual trays to their open position.  I removed the casing to gain better access (tons of screws) but you can probably gain clear access to the shelfs without removing the casing if you have good needlenose plyers.  I found a stuck CD within one of shelfs, wedged WITHIN the moving components of the shelf.  It works perfectly now.

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
