Question about JVC FS-2000 Shelf System

1 Answer

Won't read CD.

Have a ten-year-old system producing astonishingly good sound. Whilst the radio part is fine, the cd player will not recognise a normal disc. The fault was intermittent at first but now seems permanent and has baffled two repairers. (A new laser assembly has made no difference). Do I resign myself to ths or is there a (laser) light at the end of the tunnel? P.S. I'd better add that this system is actually a 'UX-2000R' but essentially the same as the picture on your site.

CD player works but start delays from 5 minutes to 20 minutes. What could cause that?

Dust inside the cd player could be causing problems.
You need to try playing a cleaning cd and follow the instructions that come with it. You can also spray compressed air to clean out the cd portion of the stereo. You can also try unplugging the unit for 20 minutes and then plug it back in. Make sure your cds are clean and not too scratched up. If the unit is under a year old it may still be under warranty. If this does not resolve the issue you may have to have the unit professionally repaired. If the unit is not worth repairing you may need to buy another unit.

Radio works fine. cd player wont read discs in either of four slots. Message - Disc error.

This can often be solved by opening the cover and blowing on the optical head to displace dust and any debris that is fouling between the optics and the actuator that controls the head position. It isn't fool proof but will fix perhaps 40% of units. Take a can of air duster (aerosol blower) and blow the little pick-up form the distance of about 1 inch. It will bounce around in the wind but don't blow to hard. Give it a gentle blast and then try the player. If it doesn't work then try again this time but blow harder.

My Bose Wave radio/cd won`t play cd`s anymore. The radio works great. The cd player worked tonite, the would stick in a certain part of a song. Very intermittent. Now tries to read the disc, then says disc...

"I`ve used an aerosol air can to clean thru the cd slot"What type? not an "empty" can of paint, hairspray, chemical of some sort i hope. Compressed air at most I hope. If not, that's your Bose out the window!
The lense sounds like it needs a clean, you can buy these in disc for with tiny brushes on. Made by BIB and Allsop amongst many brands

My 5 Disk CD player doesn't work. It wont read any kind of CD. The radio and Tape Decks still work though. How can I fix the CD player.

Hello Alison hi, we need to check two parts to see which is the problem section why your player wont read.

  1. Does your CD spins normally, check your player if the cd spins normally, if you can see the disk spinning, take note of the spin, is it to slow? An abnormal disk spin has problems with its spindle motor assembly.
  2. Does your CD spins and then slow down to a stops, did not read the disk. This is caused by two things, FIRST: your CD player lens needs cleaning, you can buy a CD lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, SECOND: The lens has degraded or worn out due to use and time, this needs a replacement lens assembly.
This things are way beyond a normal user, I suggest you send it for service. Sorry, there are no user serviceable parts here.

I have a Philips model #FWM575/37 Cd/Tape/Radio combination player. It is only 3 years old and the CD portion is not working. CD starts playing, then stops and can't get any CD to work.

You may just get away with cleaning the lens of the CD player to restore it to normal, use one of the brand name makes of CD Lens Cleaners.

Player will not play cd - it reads then says

Your CD player is failed. It will need to be replaced. Some folks can repair but it cost less to have it replaced. If no one local will do it BOSE will for about $150.

Try cleaning the discs with straight swipes, with a dry cloth, like your shirt, starting from the center and swiping outward.

Sharp XL-HP505 Not playing CDs

Hi try this.....

Put the system in standby (ie off but plugged in) then whilst pressing down the record button and the X-BASS/DEMO button, press the PRESET DOWN (i.e.left hand one) button until "CLEAR ALL" appears, then power on your system.

This gave me some functionality back i.e. i can play normal wave CD's but not mp3 ones....

Hope this helps

CD Player will not play all CD-R discs only ones it chooses. But if the CD is bought from a store it will play it.....if it is burned it usually will not.....even if the cd was just brned and plays on...

It might be an older system that can't read computer-made discs, or it could be a disc incapability. Most old players can't read CD-R discs, even if they can play normal/original CDs. You can try another media but i wont think it will help. Sorry.
