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.

    I have an 11 year old JVC FS1000GR which works great except it displays "NO DISK" after you press play. I tested the motors, all work, but disk does not spin when you press play. Where is the microchip you refered to and how do I go about shocking it?

I would guess this model is over two years old. not sure how much you paid, but target sells a decent surround sound blue ray system for just under 300. i got it. it works great, streams netflix movies an even has an internet radio system in it.

if you dont wanna do that, and have made sure that you have tried brand new cds, another option is to play cds on a cheap cd player hooked into your surround sound. it can go in any input on the back with an adaptor you can buy at radio shack, or many of them have an input in the front.

they used to make a cd lens cleaner, not sure if they still exist. it was a tiny brush hooked onto a cd that you put in and it cleaned up the lens.

bottom line is that it makes little to no sense to me that it would play dvds and not cds. i would assume that they both use the same lens to read the device.

My front loader reads disc error or unplayable no matter what disc I insert. It worked just fine for about 2 years. It doesn ot get heavy cd use, but everyday radio/alarm use.

To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
  • The Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs, MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs, make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs

  • The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was recorded in and the actual disc used for recording.
    Note: iTunes defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options

  • Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs

  • If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc

  • Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in

CD PLayer no longer recognising CD RW discs

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

LG DR6921W DVD Recorder. Unit will not recognise DVD discs (Blank or commercially recorded)but will recognise and play audio CD's. Unit is 3 years old.

That is most common problem of DVD player recorder,when getting old cannot read DVD discs,only video cd and audio cd,sometimes does'nt read video cd also. The problem is in inside of the unit the DVD processor is defected already or maybe the solder is crack, need to resolder again or reheat the processor solder, or that processor change with a new one,so the performance will back again,good as new.The lense of that unit is good,i can assure that.
