Re: JVC Ch-X11

Make sure the cds are the right way up.
Try listening to the cd mech to determine if the cds are being loaded.
If the mech is going through the motions then the problem could be the lens is dirty, the laser has failed or the spin motor is faulty.
if there is no sound of the cds being loaded, it could be a power supply problem. Try a reset or just unplug the changer then re connect it.

I have a jvc-x11 cd changer is it compatible with my sony MEX-BT39UW

No, it won't work. JVC changers work with JVC head units, Sony head units work with Sony changers. Even if the plugs are the same, it won't work.

Hey guys, I've just installed a CD changer in my car - having some difficulties getting it to work. After some Googling I came across this forum so I figured I'd see if any of you guys know where I'm...

there should be a small connector on the changer itself for the power ground and remote wire for power to the changer unit. the cord coming from the unit to the changer doesn't supply this power and this is why it wont eject and also your head unit wont recognize it until it gets powered up and able to communicate with the head unit and then it will show up as a selectable source when switching between sources of music. check the back of the changer for a small connector containing 3 or 4 pins and you should have a connector with the corresponding wires coming from it to plug into this spot after connecting the wires properly. if you bought it on ebay it is possible you didn't get this piece which is critical when connecting this changer.

There is no site or organization willing to give you a stereo code for free. Some amount of money will be charged in exchange for the radio code.

Radio unlock code can be gotten from the below link:

Also the process to follow in order to successfully unlock the stereo is stated in the link.

In addition this link claims to generate stereo unlock codes for free, you can give it a trail as it might work for you.

Take care.

Jvc ch-x350 12 disc cd changer. Loads cd but will not play it. reads: no disc and moves to the next cd and repeats. ??

If you are inserting non original cds, cds you make from your pc or cd copies sometimes they dont read, another reason is to make sure that you are inserting the disk with the correct side up, it will show you in the cd changer magazine slots. If none of this solves your problem then you have a defective cd mechanism and you need to replace or repair the changer. Very common problem with JVC Cd Changers, I used to replace them all the time and they tend to skip alot as well, get yourself a Pioneer if money is ok if not then follow my steps.

Good luck and dont forget to rate and vote for me if I helped you.
