To open the drawer, unplug the unit while the power is on (so that the drawer doesn't try to open on its own). Keeping the unit flat on a table, look underneath and find the small hole where you can turn the loading gear. Rotate it until the unit opens, using a standard flat screwdriver. The loading gear is a white plastic part with a slot in it. You should be able to see it rotate if you move the drawer by hand.

After manually removing the disc, turn the gear with your screwdriver until the drawer is all the way in, The gear should be able to be turned for three or four more turns when the drawer stops loading. If it doesn't, turn it a bit further unit it "pops" past one more gear notch. It should then turn freely for a few more turns, at this point you should stop. Do not force it once it stops the second time. This is the "Disc Loaded" position.

Power the unit back up and see if it loads a disc and plays correctly.

Is there an easy fix to the problem given in the details section below?


No there will not be a easy fix for this. You can keep putting up with this the way you have been or buy a new receiver and try to sell this one on craigslist, eBay, etc.

Hi - the CD tray cannot open. It is empty - no CDs in there. I hear a buzz, but an "error" message comes on. I tried pushing on the tray while turning on; I unplgged the CD player, I put it on...


The loading tray belt has more than likely stretched or snapped.
The buzzing you hear will be the motor spinning freely.
The 'ERROR' message will show up because the tray isn't opening
and activating the 'tray open' switch, therefore the 'tray closed' switch
is permanently activated after the 'open/close button is pressed.

My JVC cd player, plus Mini disc, and radio. CD will not play


Thank you for your email. The problem must have been dust. I kept putting the cleaning disc in for quite a number of times. Thankfully the problem was simple and it is playing super.

Kind regards to all.

Does it make this noise only while playing a disc? or is it when it opens and closes.

If it happens while playing a disc, it could be the spindle motor or something rubbing on the disc while it is spinning. Since nothing is supposed to be rubbing on the disc, it would need to be taken apart and looked at while it is spinning to see what that is.

Let me know if I can help you any more,

Good luck,

Dave

Error message


I had this happen to me as ell. you've probably got a cd stuck under the revolving tray. I took the top cover off and then opened the drawer and removed the offending disk. If you're not technically minded it's probably better to take it in to a repair shop. Mike

sorry but your unit might need a new laser assembly. Laser assembly is weak.Repair would be around $75-95 at an honest repair facility .But first I would try to blow off laser with air duster can.Open unit up ,power up and press OPEN tray without disc.You will see laser assembly against back of unit in the middle .dust off laser eye carefully .then try it,,goodluck
