Question about JVC MX-D301T Shelf System

2 Answers

CD fails to start.

At times the unit fails to recognise the music CD in the tray, or recognises its presence and shows tracks & time play on screen but doesn't initiate playing. The fault is erratic. Pushing 'play' on the remote doesn't initiate either.
Is this a faulty head or 'dry joints' somwhere?

Hi,

Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.

If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.

If still ur problem is not solved then i am sad to say you have to get it repaired and thats the only solution..

Good luck..

Well..that looks to be a clear indication that you have a lens cleaning challenge. Believe it or not, it 's not unlike the old head cleaning for audio and video players. Now, here's the rub, the cleaning kits that are recommended are quite dear. Let me see which ones are available for this unit.

Denon CD deck


This unit needs a service visit. It may be a common problem with that model but to me it sound like a power supply issue as when you play a disc more power is used to rotate motors and move the sled. This is indicating to you that it is in a weakened condition and will soon fail more significantly. The problem may be as little as a solder joint or a defective Filter capacitor which is common in some models of equipment.

Nad 502 CD will not recognise and play CD every time


HI.This will occur when the optical assembly becomes unstable. this ((Whole One Piece)), assembly incorporates the spin/load motor, optics housing /arm, tracking device and tracking rail. This is connected to the loading dock assembly. This 'NO Disc' or CD NOT PLAYABLE, code is the result of a failed or burned out lens, or misaligned loading mechanism. It is possible that you have a dirty lens cap. you can try using a cleaning disk in this case to confirm actual lens failure. if the cleaning doesn't restore normal reading capabilities, this will confirm my diagnosis.

You will need to have the optical assembly replaced in this case. once replaced, your unit will be able to read and track once more

CD playing erratic


Run a "Laser Lens Cleaner" thru the unit a couple times. Use one that takes fluid, you can find them at just about any retail store for 15-20. If that doesn't solve it, it needs to be repaired. At that point weigh the cost over replacement. A new transport usually will cost 100-150 on average for parts and labor. Hope this helps

Player not reading music.


This problem is usually due to using Windows Explorer or My Computer to transfer files. Although you can use the player as a removable drive, it will not recognise any music tracks transfered in this way. The HDD060 & 070 series have a database of tracks which is read by the player on startup. The player does not scan the drive.

To transfer tracks you need to use the Musicmatch Jukebox software on the product CD. Musicmatch updates the database when transfering music tracks.

This software is not compatible with Windows Vista, or Windows Media Player 11. If you have Media Player 11 you will need to uninstall version 11 to roll back to version 10.

If you are already using Jukebox, the problem may be the way the software is recognising the player. The HDD060 & 070 series show up both as "Removable Drive n:" (Where n can be any drive letter) and "GoGear".

If Musicmatch Jukebox is recognising the player as "Removable Drive n:" then go into the Musicmatch Options, and look for the Devices option or tab. Click the drop down menu next to the "Removable Drive n:" entry and select "GoGear".

The tracks you have already tried to transfer are actually on the player, so you will need to run the Philips Device Manager form the product CD and Restore the player, to free up this space.

Device Won't Recognise Blank CD-R Media or Certain Music CDs.


try and see if you can pull a directory using explorer,, sometimes if you record to the full 80 minutes capacity, the disc will return an error,,,even if you recorded it on that drive...also i know this may sound strange but on the drive tray itself take the mount where the laser is mounted and extend it out to the furthest travel point ,,,gently,,,do not force...load the disc, and see if it is now recognized,,,sometimes it is a timing issue, and this way the tray/laser recalibrates itself....
