My JVC stereo doesn't play cd's anymore, still runs audio for tv, and radio. What is best, low price stereo option i can hook speakers up to and play cd's again?


The CD player might just need it's lens cleaning. Best way to do this is taking the top off and cleaning the lens with either Servisol Video 40 or CD lens cleaning fluid.

Hi,
Well, the lens light needs re-trimming, that's why it's having a hard time reading that audio CD.
The adjustment is in the LENS assembly, there is a trimmer nut under that you will have to adjust and clean. It always works on CD AUDiO player ( not on DVD ).
You could send it to Bose and have it tuned and service clean the whole unit, it is not that expensive or bring it to any electronic tech and he knows what to do.

Hope that helps!

Dvd wont read it says there is no disc


Hello,

how long have you been using this player? I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD discs.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.

To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.

Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.

Good luck.

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.
