Question about JVC THC5 Home Theater System with 5-Disc DVD Changer System

1 Answer

Had to take apart to get 2 dvds out that were stuck.

Now I can't get it back together. I need a diagram or something. Some small parts I don't remember where they go as I didn't get back to the player until a month later. Can you please help.

I am having trouble with the powering on. I had a dvd stuck adn was able to get it out but had to take it apart. Now it turns on says HELLO, them blinks CHANGE (while making an aweful noise) flashes...

You haven't put it back together correctly and one or more of the mechanism gears is slipping.

You'll need to take it apart again and make sure everything is engaged as it should be.

I start up my panasonic sa-pt660 and it makes a lot of ticking noises and give me a chgr err. I tried restarting it. I also tried switching it to the radio and dvd player from the remote and the console...

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 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!

It seems that the dvd player is jammed. Cant get dvds out or in. Wont play. Is there some kind of reset or something I can do to fix it. Thanks

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

Cooling fan is making noise i took it off and took it apart and didnt really know what to do so just put it back together and its still does it. what should i do?

sometimes the fans can get dirty & collect a build up of dust etc. so using something to blow into the fan & clear any dust can sometimes help. Unfortunately if this doesn't cure it then try to drop a small amount of lubricant into the motor, usually in most cases of noisy fans the only solution is to replace it.

No vaild cd when theres a cd in the dvd player

I'd be guessing the problem being just dirt and grime over the years. The open and close problem would be due to dirt and dust on the sensors that tell it wether the CD tray is open or closed and where it is whitin its tracks. You need to find them and clean them all with contact cleaner or rubbing alcohol, but to do so, first you need to take the whole thing apart to get to the CD reader part. So if you don't feel safe enough taking it all apart yourself, take it to your local technician and he'll do it. As for it not reading the CD/DVDs, that's also due to dirt and dust but on the optic lens of the reader this times though. You just need to clean it with a cue-tip and some windex or any good glass cleaner. Be careful when cleaning the little lens in the reader head though, cause it is very fragile, and also make sure to not turn it back on if there was some cleaner that got in the head itself. If you can't wipe it off carefully, just let it dry there for a few minutes or so and then turn it back on. Again if you don't feel safe enough taking all this apart, take it to the local tech and he will gladly do it for you.

Unable to eject CD's/DVD's

Dear blxriverrat,
Optical Lens of Home Theater got stuck and its sled-mechanism doesn't move, thats why you see message "please wait" If you can handle this system then open its top cover, open plastic cover on CD mechanism and push the Optical Lens inward-outward 2-3 times carefully. No need to say, 1st unplug your theater system from A/C outlet before opening top cover.

Bose 321 DVD Stuck Won't Open

This can happen if the disc has been put in upside down accidentally, if both sides are highly reflective (e.g. blank recording discs). If so, you need to get the system to eject the system before it attempts (and fails) to read the wrong side of the disc:
On the back of the Acoustimass module (sub woofer) is a power switch. Use this to the turn the system off and wait 30 seconds. Switch it back on, the media centre flashes up "Bose 321" - press the eject button firmly once as soon as this disappears. If this works, contact Bose with the serial number from the media centre to see if the system needs a (free) software update (a disc they send in the post) - just in case the system is having general disc reading issues.

However, it may be that the drive has failed - it's a mechanical part in a mass produced system so this is not unreasonable, just disappointing. But because you have bought a premium system, the company will rush to help you - call them for a repair and explain you need the disc back urgently. they'll probably arrange an urgent, fast turnaround repair....

2 disks stuck in one slot of DVD player

Looks like it will have to come apart. Can you see how? Usually the top/side casing is simply 5/6 screws 2 each side and 1/2 at the back then slide back away from the from panel. Technical help at Panasonic may be helpful.
