JVC TH- C3 disc tray is stuck

I placed a DVD in #1 position to play and the tray is stucl . I cannot open any of the 5 tray, hence can't play any CD's or DVD's. As far as I can tell none of the CD's seem stuck in the trays ... seems like an electrical freeze. Any ideas how to fix it? The radio works ...

SOURCE: Tray issues

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.

SOURCE: Listen to DTV DVR output on TH-C3

im not familiar with this model. can i assume it is a small home theatre system with limited inputs?
in that case, the best thing to do is to feed all your devices...cable, dvr, dvd, etc....into the tv.(audio and video). then use the audio output of the tv to the input on the receiver. you may have to go into the tv menu and set the audio output to the speakers in the tv to fixed mode for a constant level out to the receiver.
good luck

You have to remove the changer assy. See why it's jammed and retime it. I have seen a lot of these with jammed changers. If you remove the dvd assy from the bottom there are 2 gear sets to the side. 1 moves trays up and down and the other draws tray in and loads the disc. All I can say is if you are mechanically inclined you can figure it out. If not have it serviced.

SOURCE: My DVD tray was stuck with a DVD into it so I had

Given that this system sells for under $100.00, I can tell you it will cost you more to repair it then it would to purchase a new system. I was able to find a comparable one from JVC here : http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-JVC-TH-S11B-HOME-THEATER-SYSTEM-205-WATTS-DVD-MP3_W0QQitemZ110441308049QQcmdZViewItemQQptZHome_Theater_in_a_Box?hash=item19b6d09f91

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

My JVC TH-G30 gives me a locked message when I try to open the load tray what should I do?


hello Setting the disc ejection lock
You can lock the disc tray to prevent the disc form
being ejected.
When the main unit is turned off, hold down the STOP
key at the front panel for 5 seconds
If you attempt to open the disc tray by pressing
OPEN/CLOSE key, the disc tray does not open and
“LOCKED” appears in the display window.
To cancel the disc ejection lock, hold down the STOP
key at the front panel for 5 seconds again when the
main unit is turned off.
“UNLOCKED” is displayed in the display window.
Note:
Before the main unit is turned off, DVD/CD function
should be selected.

I am getting the locked display


Hi Blackhawk,
This sounds like you've accidentally set the "tray lock" feature.
You can set this to stop unwanted tray ejections:

I hope this solves your problem..

CD player ate a CD!!


I fixed the same issue by forcibly pulling individual trays to their open position.  I removed the casing to gain better access (tons of screws) but you can probably gain clear access to the shelfs without removing the casing if you have good needlenose plyers.  I found a stuck CD within one of shelfs, wedged WITHIN the moving components of the shelf.  It works perfectly now.

DVD trays are stuck


Since it is unusable try this. It might help to have so\meone assist if the unit is heavy.
Raise unit and lower the tray end about 45 degrees down, while lightly shaking press the tray open, they might just fall out.

Disc tray


Something is causing the disc to get stuck inside the DVD player. Open it and inspect. If something is broken, take it to a repair center.
