    There is a sign on the back "risk of electric shock -- do not open". I know it seems silly but is it ok to open? It's all unplugged so there shouldn't be any electricity running through it and I guess no tube like the tv... I open my computer to fix. If you could answer then I will go ahead and try your fix. Thank you so much...

    I took all the screws out but could not get the unit open to check the belt. Is there a trick to opening the unit? If I cannot open, where do you recommend for repair -or- is it worth it? I just wanted to save a bit of money by fixing it rather than purchasing new. thank you again.

    Thanks. I cannot even figure out how to get under there so I will look into having it repaired.

There is a belt inside your player that is used for this mechanism. The belt is off its place or is broken, if you can then change the belt or visit a technician to get it done.

    The risk of electric shock is always there as it has certain components which even in off condition stores electric charges and if touched can prove fatal. If you haven't done this before then i will not suggest you to do this.

    The belt is under the cd lid, attached to the motor which opens the lid, in your jvc it is hidden just under the lid. If you are not able to figure it out then get it repaired. As its a small repair and won't cost you that much.

    If you need to know a place from where you can get it fixed then please see this link--

The cd player will not open when you press the open close button

unfortunatly the mechanism is jammed up for one reason or the other reason #1 a cd is stuck inside #2 the gear just wore out and or it was forced closed by hand instead of pushing the eject/load can try to gently pry this door open while pressing open/eject button that works 40% of the time..if it does not work? it can then be deemed broken out of order.

it's worth a shot trying to pry it open but beware this could either work or really destroy the door/mech/player comes down to this "do you feel lucky" sadly? that's where we're at with this one.

Drawer wont slide and dishwasher does not work

please provide the model number of the dishwasher so that I can identify the type of lid seal it is using. Usually the lid seal actuator motors are stuck and prevent drawer from opening. You could force it open with a slight tug. Otherwise turn the mains power off and on and see if it makes any difference. Need to check the lid seals for damage otherwise it may leak in future and cause flood switch to trip.

The Open/close does not work. Power is on and it

First try resetting the player. Unplug for 1/2 hour-1hr., press and hold power button for 3 seconds, wait 1/2 hour, plug back in and it should work. Otherwise you can pry open the door with a paper clip. Slowly pull door as far back as it will go, then press eject button and see if everything aligns itself back on track.

2003 Gran Cherokee CD Changer


I don't know if anyone's helped you with this yet, but to find the CD changer, open the rear door, and if you look just below the rearmost right window you'll see a hatch with a release button. Press the button, lift the lid, and there's your CD changer. Hope this is helpful. Good luck!
