Sounds like the laser lens is dirty or out of focus. You can take it apart and try cleaning the lens with a soft cloth and see it that works. If the focus is out of adjustment, that takes alot of patience and time. Never look directly at the laser with the case open. On the bottom or side of the laser lens, there are two small box looking gadgets about 1/4" square with tiny screw type adjusters in the center of them. These are potentiometers, they can develop dirty or burned spots over a period of time. Turning them slightly can give you better performance. If I remember right, one of the pots is for width and the other for height of the laser focus. You can identify them by the small ribbon cables that run to them. Try a very small turn on one and try playing the dvd. Mark with a marker a straight line across the pot and board to know where you started, believe me it helps. This can take quite a while and may or may not work. I find this to be the biggest fault with most dvd and cd players. I have fixed many this way. By the way, I use a jewelers screwdriver. They have small plastic ones for these, but they are hard to come by. Good luck.

Jvc ch-x350 12 disc cd changer. Loads cd but will not play it. reads: no disc and moves to the next cd and repeats. ??


If you are inserting non original cds, cds you make from your pc or cd copies sometimes they dont read, another reason is to make sure that you are inserting the disk with the correct side up, it will show you in the cd changer magazine slots. If none of this solves your problem then you have a defective cd mechanism and you need to replace or repair the changer. Very common problem with JVC Cd Changers, I used to replace them all the time and they tend to skip alot as well, get yourself a Pioneer if money is ok if not then follow my steps.

Good luck and dont forget to rate and vote for me if I helped you.

Thanks.

I was playing a CD and it sounded like it started to skip. Now I keep getting CD Error, No CD DJ type error. It loads, goes to track one, but will not play. It ejects and then the error displays. Is thing...


If the cd changer is old the optic may be knackered or need cleaning, sometimes cd changers gather a lot of dust on the optic and fail to read cd's, try a service center but it may cost more than it's worth.

CD changer skips on bumps


There are two ways either the 90* or the 180*. If your having problems like skipping I'd suggest finding a place at the center of the car where there is less shock for the unit, like under your seat. I know changers have this 6 seconds or more memory so in case it skips, the first 6 sec ahead of the song is stored and play it to avoid the skip.

Changer does not work


Had the same problem!! Found the solution here under "Wont Play" question. Push that cd chngr magazine (holder) all the way into the unit and tap with a blunt object( Dont tap too hard,it's plastic!!) screw driver worked for me! Push the eject button and you'll hear the unit working! Pop it in and out and it seemed to unfreeze whatever was frozen!! It finally loaded a cd and started playing again. I checked all 6 and they were okay!!

Thanks support guys for your help!!

Discs are skipping in my changer


cds skip irrespective of their positions as the reading lens is the same for all.
you can do the following
1)this seems to be a SERVICING problem with dust playing the spoilsport.
OR
2)buy a new disc (scratchless) , play it in all positions and com pare.

if it skips in all positions, call an electronic engineer who will replace /repair the delay circuit.
