Question about JVC FS-SD9 Shelf System

Open Question

JVC FS-SD9 shelf unit

Most of the time the unit stop playing after the 10th selection. The more time you use the unit it stop automatically. If I use the remote sometime #11 or 12 will play partly and will start skipping. When the machine is cool the 1st CD will play entirely (18 songs). I have tried to clean the lens as directed in the manual; it does not work. I also noticed that the lens stopped in the middle on the slider track when this happen. If it stopped at #13 it is stillo displaying that #. It is like something is obstructing the track but I cannot see anything except a piece of light plastic goldish ribbon in the background. Very frustrating. If this machine needs to be serviced, we live in Halifax, NS Canada any suggestion where we should take it. Thanks Nicole

SOURCE: CD Player Problems

Manually cleaning the lens
To locate the laser lens, look around the door or drawer of the DVD player and you will see a small circular disc, which is often called the turntable or disc platter. Right off the edge of the platter you should see a small clear lens. There are some manufacturers that have had problems with the lens, depending on the age of the unit. In these problem players, moving the unit to a different location, turning the unit upside down, or sometimes even without moving the unit, the lens can become detached from the laser assembly and floats around inside the unit. You can re-glue it back with a little crazy glue, BUT it must be perfectly centered, and without getting any glue on it. So, if you don’t see the plastic lens, but instead see the laser pick-up assembly, look around for the lens inside the unit and glue it back on.
To clean the lens you must use very little pressure. Take a cotton swab and barely moisten it with plain, non-scented, or oily type alcohol. In a swirling motion, very gently rub the lens until you’ve covered it entirely. Then repeat using the dry end.
If the cleaning didn’t help, don’t despair just yet. You can see if there’s a problem elsewhere in the unit by using a few simple tricks and tips.
First thing you want to see if the unit’s laser is in good working order. This method isn’t foolproof, but most of the time works admirably. When you insert a disc, see if you can look up underneath where the disc sits on the turntable. Observe the laser lens going up and down. If the lens is trying to focus, that’s good! After a few seconds of the lens trying to focus, the platter should start to spin. On almost every CD/DVD unit I've encountered, the unit won't spin unless the laser has properly focused on the surface of the disc. If the unit spins up and and then shuts down, you should check and make sure the laser pick-up assembly slider mechanism is working without any obstructions and that the small chrome rail that it slides on is slightly greased. Don’t go overboard with the grease though, as too much can cause all sorts of problems.
The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and the manufacturer, consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn’t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There’s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also.
If the disc starts to spin slowly and doesn’t come up to speed, the spindle motor that’s attached to the turntable platter is a common problem. There could also be a problem with the spindle motor driver controller IC or the power supply regulator that supplies voltage to the driver IC. If the disc starts to spin and then spins really fast, or stops and starts to spin backwards, your problem is the laser pick-up assembly or the servo control circuit. If you continue to have problems after cleaning and checking the other things listed above, you may have a problem with the player's alignment. Of course, one of the problems you'll face checking alignments on a DVD/CD player is that you’re going to need to use an oscilloscope on most of them. If you have the proper tools and equipment, the first thing to look at is the RF pattern of the unit while its playing. It should be a sharp and clear pattern. If it's dull and smeared, then the laser could be weak.
Also, in these units are very critical alignments called the focus/tracking gains and offsets. When these alignments are off, it can often cause intermittent troubles. As the unit ages and parts change value, so do these alignments, and will need to be checked. In my time as service technician repairing DVD/CD players, 65% of the laser pick-up assembles I have tested were good and only needed a small adjustment. Today's technology makes it unfeasible for a shop to hook up a DVD/CD player, and even some recorders, to their equipment and make these adjustments because of the cost involved.

Hope this may help;

Regards,
VOTIT

SOURCE: Does not play CD-s

I dont know if you were able to solve the problem or you have discarded the unit. I had the same problemeverytime you remove it from the power and it was so annoying, no matter what amount of cleaning you do. It worked sometimes after 15 0r 20 loading and unloading of the CD.I was in t position to dump it but i took a chance. I opened the CD drive and found a sort of TRIMMER of POTENTIOMETER very close to the lense and just adjusted it trial and error. I read somewhere that increasing the intensity of the laser may help. Maybe I have increased the intensity and from that time on It never have any problem.

SOURCE: 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.

Keeps skipping songs on cds


This is a laser pickup problem, overtime the laser becomes weaker until it reaches point it can not track properly and starts skipping until it fails. One possible solution is clean the laser lens with a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol that might solve the problem. To replace the assembly would not be cost effective to repair, cheaper to replace.

My jvc 5 disc player wont play cd nor dvd.says tray errr. wont open to eject dics or play


It is possible that the loading belt needs to be replaced, or the timing gears are out of sink, either way it must be taken apart to find the problem, sometimes I find the gears ware out causing the unit to lock up. When you hit the eject button do you hear a motor running? that should be the sound of the loading mechanism trying to eject the tray.

How can we turn off the automatic start of Radio or CD setting?


The activating and deactivating of the 24 hour timer is via a toggle button, labeled "TIMER" on towards the right side of the top console. When the TIMER is activated, you will see a small clock symbol on the LCD display. While the unit is on, tap the TIMER button once. The clock symbol will disappear and the timer is now off.

Reactivating the timer is the same process (remember, the button is a toggle). Tap the TIMER button and you'll see the timer settings show up on the display (time on, time off, source, and volume). The little clock symbol appears again.

If you have lost your manual, you can download another one for free from this location:
