Re: jvc xv-thc3 tray is frozen

The changer mechanism needs to be manually reset. Maybe due to a broken gear.

The wall mount blurry player will play movies (Benjamin. Button) but will not advance from the FBI warning for The Good Wife, tv series rental. Help

If other discs are playing fine it is best to give the benefit of doubt to the player and not to worry more as this can be a damaged disc, a pirated disc or one with a region lock.Some times certain players will not play as the tracks can have errors due to damage and so the processor will protect.

My bass powered subwoofer on JVC system doesn't turn on

You need to check the signal. If there is not signal present or the volume is low the sub will not turn on and goes in to sleep mode.

My JVC TH-G30 gives me a locked message when I try to open the load tray what should I do?

hello Setting the disc ejection lock
You can lock the disc tray to prevent the disc form
being ejected.
When the main unit is turned off, hold down the STOP
key at the front panel for 5 seconds
If you attempt to open the disc tray by pressing
OPEN/CLOSE key, the disc tray does not open and
“LOCKED” appears in the display window.
To cancel the disc ejection lock, hold down the STOP
key at the front panel for 5 seconds again when the
main unit is turned off.
“UNLOCKED” is displayed in the display window.
Before the main unit is turned off, DVD/CD function
should be selected.

Tempremental playing dvds

In response to your jvc-a75r DVD player, sometimes the solution might be less complex than it may appear. Had the same problem with my Samsung s321,the machine refused to read DVD's but would play CD's no problem. Simply opened up the cover(usually)4-6 small screws, and found my dog's hair inside of the player covering the laser eye.Electrostatic ionization attracts dust,etc. into the player remarkably well sometimes. Carefully used a cotton swap to remove debri. PLayerworked fine afterwards ...Good luck!

Tray error

I saw on another JVC systems manual that its an error message that shows when the tray isn't fully open due to an obstruction. If you can locate a manual eject button(usualy you'll need to insert some tip into it) it will help you eject the tray and look for any obstructions, anything looking out of the ordinary there. at least that way you'll be able to take your cds out... You can also try disconnecting the system from all power sources for a few days(including an internal battery), maybe the reset will jog it back to working order. If you're out of warranty and know your way around those things, try taking it apart, cleaning as much as you can, and look for anything out of the ordinary, like broken gears or pins, bent parts, a cog, etc. Good luck
