Tray issues I have the JVC TH-C30. It will not release any of the 5 DVDs inside. The manual doesn't cover this problem which I think could be fairly common. Help?

I have had this a few times and it is a pain. You have to completely remove the DVD unit from the chassis (ribbon cables and all). Once out, you turn it upside down and you will see a set of gears that drives the trays in/out. Manually rotate the gears to reset the tray position (one will likely be out of place when you open it up or a DVD will be skewed causing it to bind). This is not for the faint of hearted or non-mechanically enclined. This particular DVD changer unit is troublesome and finicky to deal with. I have also found that copied DVD's cause this to occur due to some issues with disc detection.

It seems that the dvd player is jammed. Cant get dvds out or in. Wont play. Is there some kind of reset or something I can do to fix it. Thanks


its very common for 1 of those 5 trays to get stuck in the unit usually with a disc as well --you will have to manually go in while its unplugged elevate the tray by spinning 1 of the 2 large gears near the front of the mech and reseat the tray

JVC TH-C30 dvd movies skip


Check your formatting on the DVD recorder, you need to finalize the disk to be playable on "any" player. That should solve the issue. Your JVC is looking for specific code as it reads the disc, when it's missing or not understood by your JVC it will either stop play or skip over it's interperated missing info. Hope this helps

My dvd player is locked


If you are unable to get the tray of the dvd player open either the player will have a hole in front for you to stick a (I use a straightened out paper clip) into and press in towards the dvd player. It will manually open the drive so you can retrieve your dvd or there will be enough of a lip on the tray door you can grab it and pull it open manually. Then I would try unplugging the player and waiting a few minutes and plugging it back in and you might get lucky and it may never happen again. Good luck . Hope it works.

Universal Remote


I do not know if it works but you can check the website, I am very happy with my Logitech Harmony remote. Probably overkill but you will love what you can do with these.

No power


I have a TH-C30. I had the same problem where the unit just stopped working - no standby light and no recognition of power at all. After checking this forum and another, I opened the unit, found the ceramic fuse where the power comes in and went to Radio Shack. They have a T1AL250V fuse pack that is a 1 amp, 250 volt, 5 X 20 mm SLOW BLOW glass fuse which is a better fuse for this common problem. Their RS number is 270-1063 and a pack of 4 costs about $3. Put new fuse in and the problem was solved.

The repair took minutes - 3 screws on the back and two screws on each side. Lift the cover from the back (it is slip-hinged on the front) and replace the ceramic fuse. It slips out with a little help and the new one snaps in place.

Tempremental playing dvds


In response to your jvc-a75r DVD player, sometimes the solution might be less complex than it may appear. Had the same problem with my Samsung s321,the machine refused to read DVD's but would play CD's no problem. Simply opened up the cover(usually)4-6 small screws, and found my dog's hair inside of the player covering the laser eye.Electrostatic ionization attracts dust,etc. into the player remarkably well sometimes. Carefully used a cotton swap to remove debri. PLayerworked fine afterwards ...Good luck!
