Question about Pioneer Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

I have a Pioneer CD player that is probably about twenty-five years old. It has a six CD holder that fits into the changer. This changer moves the CD's in and out of the player. You can play them in order or random. Something is wrong now because it cycles through all six disc without playing any tracts. What's the solution?

It cycles through the CDs because it can not read any of them. The most common cause of this is the lens falling out. These players have the optics upside down. You load the CDs with the label down correct? The lens is probably floating around inside the unit. Sometimes you can reinstall the lens and the unit is OK. Please use a small amount of clear nail polish to "glue" the lens in place. Anything else will cloud up the lens making the unit junk. If that fails to resolve the problem, the unit may need a ribbon cable or just a complete alignment.

Good luck.

Your system was an old carousel type CD changer. They do not make them anymore. The whole world is moving towards compact storage devices ( Hard disk / Flash drives ) and steering away from media like CD's , DVD's etc. Thanks to the internet, almost everything is available at your fingertips.
Today your system would be worth less than half of what you paid. In fact for half the amount you could pick up something similar with only one CD tray, but with a USB port for playing MP3 / Video files.

The large changers after a few years start to show ware and tare, the gears become worn and because you are dealing with plastic makes them all most impossible to repair. So to answer your question, easier to replace the device.

I have a Pioneer LCV-300 Laser Karaoke player; but without the "receiver" or "commander" unit. Is this unit necessary for the disc changer portion to operate or power on?


I may have a CD-V300 commander Auto changer if you can supply me with an owners manual for a LC-V300 laser changer. I also have an auto changer CD-V2000 if you can use it. If you can please contact me. Thanks.

Hi I have a jvc xl m500 6 disc cd changer and the tray won't open help.


I had the same problem. Out of the blue, neither the single tray nor the cassette would eject. On top of that, it wouldn't change discs or even play the disc in the engaged tray. I then unplugged the unit, moved it to my work table, plugged it back it, and it worked fine.
Last year I had a similar problem with the JVC receiver RX750V that I had bought along with the CD player, probably around 1986--it simply would not turn on. I took it out of the cabinet, and shipped it to a JVC repair shop called BC Electronics, Levittown, PA 215 547-7600. They were very knowledgeable and courteous, but said they could find nothing wrong with the unit, and that the unit worked fine. They shipped it back, and the unit worked fine initially. I found that the problem recurred, i.e. that every so often I'd turn the machine on via the on-off switch, and nothing would happen. If I then unplugged the unit, left it off for a while, and plugged it back in, it would work fine. I then installed an in-line on-off switch on the receiver cord. It now seems to work fine consistently.
It seems that after twenty years, this same problem may affect this generation of JVC components, i.e. that the main power source to the unit must occasionally be cut off.
On the other hand I could be completely wrong and just plain lucky...Hope that helps.

Pioneer DV535 Player


That sounds like a problem that needs professional service. The door may have jumped a gear, or there could be a circuit malfunction. At any rate, it's probably cheaper to buy a new DVD player. CD and DVD technology are quite precarious still, and I wouldn't expect more than a couple years service from most DVD players.

Pd-m403 cd player skips thru all six cds (they are oriented correctly) without playing any selection, then get a message "no disc"


Hi there

Sure you can.for 12 years I was a prefferred service agent for Pioneer. I have repaired dozens of these units with this problem. It has been happening since they came up with the six disc changer mech. The Pioneer preferred way is to replace the optic, set the diffraction grating(not an easy task without the right gear) and mechanical alignment of the new optics. DO NOT USE CYNOACRYLATE BASED GLUES This is super glue. the fumes will cloud the lens and render it useless, I use Tarzan's Grip, a clear general purpose repair glue,used for say china,metal plastic etc.
  • I always make sure that the lens in orientated the same way as it came out. You can usually tell by the glue marks on the sides of the lens and the holder it seats into.
  • Refit the lens, then dab the sides of it and the holder, don't get too carried away.
  • I use at least 3-4 dabs about the sides of the lens, but don't put it under the lens before you seat it .
  • I then put something on top of it for at least 12 hours till the glue sets. then hopefully if all went as planned, it should again work.
I used to always check focal offset and tracking offsets, and tweak also the RF pattern to refocus the repaired assembly. You do need test gear to do that, but generally, the player will work if the lens is seated correctly and secured properly. Happy to talk to you more about my experience doing this job,or answer any questions about it.

regards
