Question about JVC TH-C40 System

1 Answer

DVD trays are stuck

I have a TH-C40 Digital Theater System, less than 1 year old. It has 5 trays. I put a DVD in the first tray, a few days ago. I went to retrieve it and the player showed "no disc," as well as there being no disc when the tray slid out. A real mystery. I put another DVD in the tray and low and behold, the original must have been in there, because now the tray is stuck closed and will not open. Any suggestions as to how to get the DVDs out?

    Try do not open. No discs, but when pressing the try buttons, showes "disc 1" and no other reaction, regardless what disc button you press.

Since it is unusable try this. It might help to have so\meone assist if the unit is heavy.
Raise unit and lower the tray end about 45 degrees down, while lightly shaking press the tray open, they might just fall out.

Hi my problem is with the dvd tray it does not open . it make a funny noise but it does not open thx


OK I fixed it. One of the CD's had gotten stuck between trays in the loader. I pulled out a few CD's by forcing open the trays gently. However even after removing as many cd's as possible one was still stuck. 1. Remove screws holding cover plate on in back and sides. 2. Remove cover. 3. Lift face plate latches and lift over top of unit. Remove serial cables from connectors on board. Take face plate and place aside. Remove screws from back of CD tray unit and bend back metal tab with flathead screwdriver. Lift CD unit up on one side so you can get your fingers up inside underneath and push stuck cd towards tray openings. You can gently force top few trays out. You may need to shake unit so that stuck cd reaches open end. Pull out CD. 4. Replace faceplate and connect serial cables. Plug in power cord, power on unit and make sure trays will eject normally. 5. Put it all back together!

its very common for 1 of those 5 trays to get stuck in the unit usually with a disc as well --you will have to manually go in while its unplugged elevate the tray by spinning 1 of the 2 large gears near the front of the mech and reseat the tray

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.
Note:
Before the main unit is turned off, DVD/CD function
should be selected.

My dvd player is locked


If you are unable to get the tray of the dvd player open either the player will have a hole in front for you to stick a (I use a straightened out paper clip) into and press in towards the dvd player. It will manually open the drive so you can retrieve your dvd or there will be enough of a lip on the tray door you can grab it and pull it open manually. Then I would try unplugging the player and waiting a few minutes and plugging it back in and you might get lucky and it may never happen again. Good luck . Hope it works.

DVD Eject tray stuck


I took a stake knife from the kitchen and pried open the tray door as I hit the eject button this got it to open, I then cycled eject and close, eject close a few times and this did the trick, I even played a DVD and that worked fine also. I had the problem with the tray not opening, and the display would read OPEN when I hit eject and I could hear it trying to open. So I wanted to make sure the tray wasn't just stuck or wedged before I took the system apart and looked for sripped out plastic gears or the belt being broken. GoodLuck rayruiz10@yahoo.com

This is an indication that the optics are either dirty or failing. Carefully open up the unit and clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. That should resolve the problem. If not, try playing a music CD. If the CD plays but a DVD does not, the optics are failing and need to be replaced.
