CD tray stuck

One of the CD trays is stuck halfway open. It will attempt to close but it appears to hit something. I can not open any other tray while that one is open. Any ideas?

SOURCE: cd player opens when turned on and will not function

I have brought my system to a JVC service center in January. They kept it for 2 months, trying to find the problem.... Finally, they told me that they would need to replace the whole CD player section (drawers + reader assembly). The cost of this repair would be more than the cost of a new system !!! I now have a large, expensive RADIO TUNER in my bedroom, without CD player :-(. I hope someone will find a solution. This is the last JVC system I purchase, EVER.

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.

Disc Tray will not open . There are no Cd's in the player. It looked like a tray came loose and before I could keep it open it closed. Now the disc tray door is stuck

The unit will need to be dis assembled and repaired by a technician. One of the plastic gears may be broken or misaligned. If you are mechanically inclined you could attempt the repair yourself but be careful not to loose any of the parts.

Deneon UD M50 - Tray jam

It sounds like the cd tray has been forced shut and has been damaged when you got the CD's out. If it was me I would of unscrewed the casing and retrieved the CD's that way instead of trying to force the try open which I'm assuming you have done.

It could just be a simple matter of just slightly adjusting the internal CD mechanism so that it can open and close properly without jamming. The error message comes up because the tray cant eject properly. The worse case scenario is that the CD mechanisam would need to be replaced. Not a hard job for a service engineer, if you dont fancy taking the thing apart yourself then a service centre is your best bet.

Cd tray not staying closed

gently push the cd door back in while pushing the door closed button , untill it closes if it still comes out then the cd laser mechanism is not lifting or something else has happened , then it will need to be tested to determine the exact cause

CD tay won't open

If you had any cds inside, you can open the case and see whether there's any cd jammed, with the power switch off! If you didn't have any cds inside, open the case anyway and check if the tray opens or not!!!

Hope it goes well!!

FW-R7 displays "Locked" when attempting to open CD Trays

You were close, but didn't explain it very well. If you push on the 'DISPLAY' button (left side of machine as you are facing it, about half way down) when the unit is off, it will say something like "DEALER MODE", push it again to return it to regular mode. You may have to press and hold the button to get it to display 'DEALER MODE', then when everything is normal, "DEALER MODE" just goes off and isn't replaced by anything. Hope I explained it well.

CD player problem

Seems like the Timingfor the Tray Open / close has got disturebed. Could be a bad drive gear, or as simple as a loose Drive belt. Get it checked by a professional.
