Question about JBL Harmony Shelf System

2 Answers

Hi, I have a JBL Harmony RDS 230. The CD Player does not work.

It started a while ago when the cd system could not identify some of my discs. In some cases the player took a long time to start an inserted cd (while searching and searching and searching). In other cases there was no problem. Finally the cd player did no longer identify any disc. It refuses to work totally (but it still opens and the turntable works as well).
Since I love the Harmony system (it meets my needs perfectly) I tried to have it fixed but my HiFi dealer says that there are no spare parts available for the cd system. Is he right? What can I do? Any chance to buy a new one (ore a used one)?

    Hi Nuwan, thank you for answering so quick.



    The cd-player is the normal drawer-loading cd player the JBL Harmony is standardly equipped with.



    My HiFi-dealer suspects that the module was manufactured by Sony but only in a very small series, so no spare parts are said to be available.



    Thx

    Hi Nuwan,



    thank you for the quick response. I had already sent an answer but possibly failed.



    The drawer opens and closes normally. when opened the cd run turns a bit. When I insert a cd it starts to load but after a minute of trying the display sais "no disc".



    I would like to have it repaird. How can we manage? I am in Frankfurt/Main in Germany and I don't know where you are. What shall I do?



    Kind regards



    Peter

The cd player in my car is A56820, JBL, it will load and eject cf's but not read. any fixes?


Did you get all of the CDs out of the player or are any still
stuck inside the stereo? Its the part about everything working
OK until a disc changed that makes me ask.
If a disc is jammed because it didn't load properly, you won't
be able to get all your discs out.

Cd player error


so is this a stock RAD/cd?
stock JBL 6 disk player in dash>? or? what? name and model #
mp3 and wma format. but not DVD
or
JBL premium 4-disc in-dash CD changer
io the single disc player, 3 kinds sold. new.

and now comes the big question.
TELLS where you got the disk, or name it, or tell how it was made if home made. we dont know that.

is said CD a CDDA? or not. (always try CDDA first)
is CD a real music disc. from a real store, CDDA, is that.
or CDR, or DVDr, or CDRW, or other record-able media
is music MP3? files.
see, the old units dont play modern media.

try 2 real discs, not scratched.
do they play?
one other way, is to name the radio, brand, like JBL then get the
p/n off it. (hard) then look up the product data sheet on it,
bingo, what it can and can not do is there.

but this does it all, mostly
does what yours will not do.

Welcome to Fixya

Try to use cd cleaner first to clean the lens. Its giving you a BAD CD error because the lens cannot read the disc. Do the cleaning method 2 times.

Please reply to this email for any update.
