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?

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 stereo cd player will not spin the cd

The laser cd pickup is at the end of life, try a cd cleaning kit it might bring it back, no change! replace the cd player, far cheaper to buy than repair.

My dvd player wont read my movies

Check its Sled Motor. Sled motor is one which get spins the disc we insert into it. If it is faulty, discs won't spin, and the set won't read anu discs, and will show no-disc display. OK.

When playing cd player , cd rotates angle of 5 degrees clockwise

Hi there

It is probable that you will have a faulty spindle motor if the disc wont spin up to speed. Have you been able to give the disc a kick start to get it to read. The disk also has to spin the fastest when reading the table of contents after the disc is first loaded. Sometimes when the suspension rubbers to the laser fail, the disc may also be catching on parts of the mechanism preventing it from spinning up to speed. Can you give me a little more about how the problem is occurring, particularly what noises you hear, and whether you can kick start the disc to spin. I have plenty of experience repairing these players, and am happy to answer any questions you may have about it. Cheers

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
