Question about JVC MX-KA3 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Screen says 'LOCKED'

I cannot open up the 3 cd changer due to the screen saying LOCKED. I've tried everything I can think of, including unplugging it. First time I've seen this. I can't get my cd's out of the stereo to play other ones. It's useless now unless I find out what UNLOCK means and how it got there in the first place. The cd's in there will play, but changing is nice too. Please help. Not too sure where I may have put the instuction booklets, been too long.

What is the error message? The CPUs will not overclock on there own, that requires configuration. Some components when not installed properly with cause the computer to boot to a black screen and the fan to speed up dramatically. I've seen memory sticks and display port cables cause this. Check all your hardware and make sure everything is seated properly.

I've had my compaq presario cq61 for about 2-3 years. A while back it would occasionally have a kind of shaky/blinky screen but just in the past week it's like the screen has stopped working.

The problem may be due the graphics card or data cable or backlighting.

The data cable can be severed over time though opening and closing the display. This can be replaced.
The backlighting/inverter dies, some-times the windows desktop screen can be seen if one looks carefully. This can also be replaced.

Try connect your notebook to another computer's monitor via VGA or HDMI out.

If this works then the problem lies with your LCD screen.

Take care!

I got problem with my sat nav on s320 cdi (2002)

Hi, You need to replace the cd changer. This is very common on these vehicles. The best place to get the changer is the dealership. I have seen them fit aftermarket changers in there but can not give any advise on that.

Not accepting cd's

I have the exact same car a 2005 Ford Focus ZX5 with a 6 disc MP3 player, when we first got the car the changer worked fine and would read all discs, after a few weeks it would kick out every disc and say that it was "bad disc", we tried buying just some office depot cleaning disc thinking it would clean the laser. This did nothing, tonight I got quite ambitious and removed the whole deck from the dash. You do this by carefully prying back the surrounding plate all the way around the heating controls and then unbolting the deck from the car. I unhooked the cabels that were running into and pulling it out. I then unscrewed all the small screws to the unit and took a look inside. As it turns out I wasn't able to find the laser eye as the changer had hidden it, so I screwed it back together and put it back in. Turned on the player and put in a disc and it played perfectly. So in the end basically unplugging it and plugging it back in did the trick. You may also have the same luck just unplugging the battery for about a minute and plugging it back rather than taking your dash apart. Hopefully that helps you since it's been 4 months since you posted this issue.

Pioneer CDXP1280 12 cd changer. Power to changer, no operation

I Think there are 3 wires to a Pioneer changer??
+12V Battery ( Hot ) on all of the time
Switched +12v ( accessories, or switched by the radio only when it's on,
and Ground (Chassis Earth)
I think there was 2x orange and one black wire
Make sure that there is a good earth to the changer. Use a multimeter on ohms between a good earth point on the car and the cd changer or the black wire.

If you disconnect and reconnect all poer to the changer, you may hear the motors whirr for a short time as the mechanism resets, but cant be sure.
Hope that helps

The CD changer is locked and won't move

Open the player. (Undo the screws) take off the cover and nudge the tray gently take a look around and see if the white plastic gears are locked up. A little gentle prodding should loosen it up. Barring that call Yamaha!
