How do I unjam a disc stuck in the 5xCD tray of a Sony DAV-C770 compact AV system?

If you experience difficulty with the disc tray opening or closing, follow these steps to try to resolve the issue.
  1. Turn off the power to the disc player or the stereo system, if the disc player does not have a separate POWER button.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the AC outlet.
  3. Verify there is nothing is blocking the tray from opening or closing.
  4. Let the disc player or the stereo system remain without power for approximately one minute.
  5. Plug the power cord back into the AC outlet.
  6. Turn on the power to the disc player or stereo system.
  7. Attempt to open or close the disc drawer or tray.
If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required.

My JVC TH-G30 gives me a locked message when I try to open the load tray what should I do?

hello Setting the disc ejection lock
You can lock the disc tray to prevent the disc form
being ejected.
When the main unit is turned off, hold down the STOP
key at the front panel for 5 seconds
If you attempt to open the disc tray by pressing
OPEN/CLOSE key, the disc tray does not open and
“LOCKED” appears in the display window.
To cancel the disc ejection lock, hold down the STOP
key at the front panel for 5 seconds again when the
main unit is turned off.
“UNLOCKED” is displayed in the display window.
Before the main unit is turned off, DVD/CD function
should be selected.

I kept hitting the disc exhange/eject button to turn the unit on and after a couple of tries it finally opened about half way. The whole reason i wanted to open it was to get the last dvd that i watch out of it. Well in doing so i noticed that there were some discs rattling around up underneath the cd tray (from my 1 1/2 year old). After shaking the unit a couple of times i was able to get the discs out of the underside of the disc tray. When i hit the disc exchange to close the try the unit powered up, closed the tray, and operated fine and i am back to using it like i used to with out any other problems.

Disc Tray Won't Open

I have contacted Venturer Electronics Inc. (which have recently purchased RCA); they are in Toronto, Ontario. They suggested to perform a Manufacturer Reset (as follows); and if it works; system should power up [this means there was a glitch in the software]...(this usually happens when system is plugged into a power bar or surge protector) if not, contact them @ 1-800-721-4007. They honor the manufacturer's (RCA) 1 year warranty... with receipt.

To reset Unit:
Unplug Unit from AC power (other wires can stay connected)
Press the On/Standby button in front of Unit 15 times
Wait 30 minutes
Replug Unit to AC power
Press the On/Standby button to power up unit
Wait couple of minutes for unit to do its thing

**If unit works properly, then ensure not to plug unit into power bar or surge protector, keep plugged into wall.
**If unit will not power up properly, contact them for further instructions.

Hope this is helpful....
My Unit powered up wonderfully and is currenlty working like a charm.
Good luck!

Jvc xv-thc3 tray is frozen

The changer mechanism needs to be manually reset. Maybe due to a broken gear.

My dvd/cd try does not open when i press the eject button say "locked"

That means your trays are on Child Lock (this is a safety feature to prevent any accidental opening or closing of disc trays by small children when listening to your favorite tracks.)
To solve this, simply switch off your radio to Standby and hold the power button...whilst holding the power button, press open on the tray that is locked....the system will display UNLOCKED on the display of your hi-fi.

That should be it. To lock the tray....repeat the same process on the particular tray u want locked.

System unresponsive when modes are switched

Sounds like there may be a glitch in the microprocesor. Make sure when you unplug it that you leave it along for a few days and is there any type of clock or standby batterys in it take them out as well. If that dosent correct the problem your gonna need a service manual to trace the switch pulse to see if the units Switch matrix lines are low or lost because of a faulty micro or a bad componet like a small caps they install on the matrix to keep noise off them. Hard one to call with out seeing unit and analizing unit Good Luck
