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

2 Answers

5-disk autochanger I moved and was re-setting up my system...the controller unit was turned up-side down and I heard what I thought was a disk "move" inside. I inspected the unit to see, but no disk were inside. I removed the cover and then removed the autochanger itself. There is what appears to be a disk tray (not the tray the disks are loaded into, but one they appear to be moved to for play) - that has been "disloged" and was loose in the unit. I'm sure that I can put it back in (it doesn't appear to be broken), but I can't figure out how/where it is supposed to be installed. Do you have a diagram of how it is "supposed" to be assembled? Please help. Thank you

    I'm not looking for an "instruction manual" or a "users guide"....I need an exploded view of the autochanger. (I don't need a wiring schematic)

    I've got 3 photo's....where do I send them?

    The metal cover SM1-1M cannot be removed, at least not easily.

    I removed the white plastic cover shown above it that is attached with two screws. This houses the disc trays.

    The tray installed above the disc trays, in the orientation you suggested.

Since diagrams are very scarce for these types of system, I suggest contacting the manufacturer at (800) 252-5722 or and they should be able to get someone who can help you out with either a diagram through email or by step by step directions. Let me know if they are unable and I will see what else I can do or who I can find to get what you need.

good luck

    yes I know you don't want a manual but companies are very protective about documents like you are needing and so if you explain the situation, they should help you otherwise you may have to send a picture and send it to me so I can tell you what to do

    Benjamin Patri Jun 02, 2008 like I posted in your other thread, I will reply as soon as I can after you send them

    alright, so to start you will want to remove the top metal piece with the big SM1-1M on it. The black tray goes in with the open end facing in and it is right-side up in the picture and should go in with only a 90 degree clockwise turn.

    There is a white tab with a metal arm on the top left of the second picture, the tray should attach to this. The assembly on the bottom moves vertically. I am unable to clearly see any other points of connection on the top sides but the tray should hook at the top and if you are still having trouble getting it to connect, then please take a side picture of both sides on the inside preferably with the top off but I hope this helps

When i moved my kic chest freezer model kc0021-Aa, I heard an light explosive sound and now the freezer does not go on.

The following is the GE moving instructions. If you have started before the 24 hour rest period and the unit had been rotated from vertical have the compressor inspected.

FREEZER MOVING INSTRUCTIONS Please use the following steps when relocating an upright or chest freezer:
  1. Disconnect the power cord from the wall receptacle.
  2. Remove the food, defrost, and clean the freezer.
  3. Use blankets to protect the freezer finish from scratches.
  4. Place the freezer on its side for moving only if you have no other choice.
  5. When transporting a freezer, keep it in an upright position. If transporting it in an upright position is not possible, lay it down on the compressor side of the unit. Be careful to secure the door to prevent it from opening.
  6. If it has been transported on its side, set it right side up in its final location and allow the freezer to sit for the same amount of time that it was on its side (24 hrs max.). Do not plug the unit into the electrical receptacle without allowing this settling time. The unit can be damaged if it is plugged in prematurely.

If the unit was transported in an upright position there is no waiting time required.

Hope this helps?

2002 Kawasaki ZX-6R is stalling when the clutch is disengaged

Hi, Jesse the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

Frigidaire range GLEF378CSB oven lights come on but the oven does not get warm. Thought I heard a pop

Hello - Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately two minutes and turn the range back on. Select a normal bake cycle and if issue continues then the unit may possibly have either a faulty element, bad communication error with the main control board, oven sensor, or mechanical thermostat. I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately. They also usually warranty their labor just in case something else may turn out to be the root cause of your initial problem and it does work out better to your advantage.

Need to selct english on the ps2 box itself,its in asain can u help

Remove any disk and close the disk tray. Turn off your system and let it sit for a few seconds before turning it back on. Select the "Language" option from the main menu to open the language menu.
Move the cursor up using the directional pad on your controller until you get to "Language Select." Push the X button repeatedly until it lists "ENGLISH." This changes the audio settings from English to Spanish.
Scroll down to the "Subtitles" option in the language menu and change this setting to Spanish as well. The subtitles will appear in ENGLISH at the bottom of the screen every time a character in the game speaks. If you wish, you can skip this step and rely only on the audio settings.
Press the Circle button on your controller to move back to the main menu, which will save the settings. Select the correct time and date setting for your time zone, if the system asks you to do so. Push the Circle button again to access the main menu.
Place a PS2 game into your console and let the game load. You should now have ENGLISH, settings on your PS2, including subtitles.

Volume control candy oven timer

Switch off the oven, leave for 5 seconds and switch it back on.
Candy Customer Services asked for over £100 to have an engineer sent to my house, which I refuse as I thought the oiven was good.
I had to switch off all the electricity in the kitchen but after this 'reset' the oven turned to the normal 'high' volume.

Fridge & Freezer smell like a gas grille...

Do you mean it smells like propane? Or does it smell like propane exhaust (think taxi cab or fork lift)?

Either sounds pretty serious. I have heard of people using hydrocarbons to recharge refrigeration systems, though it is not the recommended method.

Do you own your residence or do you rent? Either way, call a repair man or the management of your rental right away and insist to have it inspected.

Fridges might smell like plastic or stale air if not used in awhile, but not propane/exhaust that I have ever heard of.
