SOURCE: JVC KW-AVX 800 "Position error"
Assuming that this is not a new install (the laser is secured with a long, thin brass screw when shipped, and this screw must be removed on installation), and the unit has worked before today, then we will troubleshoot from the "damage" perspective.
The laser isn't centering itself to start position.
This could be due to track binding (dust buildup) or just a hard jolt to the base (pothole?), but the first thing to try is a soft reset...and if that doesn't get it, then a hard-reset next.
*Assuming of course that one of the kids hasn't jammed something foreign into the slot and knocked the head off-track...it happens quite often.
Most models have a tiny, recessed "reset" button that you can press and hold for 5 seconds with a ball-point pen, located under the faceplate.
This will restore factory settings, and re-center the laser.
If the error returns, a Hard reset:
Disconnect the Positive(+) cable from the car battery for at least 30 seconds, and re-connect.
You will likely lose all saved stations on the radio, but this is a last-resort to avoid removing and opening the unit.
9 times out of 10 this will solve any digital errors, and will free sticky tracks better than half of the time.
