Question about JVC Audio & Video Receivers

I have a JVC Ultra Compact Component System, the FS-2000 which will not play. i.e. the turntable will not spin. The button on the handheld will open and close the top, but when I then press CD, nothing happens.

    You asked whether I could hear the CD spinning. The answer is no and I can see thru the transparent cover that the CD is not spinning.

    I have a JVC Ultra Compact Component System, the FS-2000, which will not play. i.e. the turntable can be seen on top beneath the clear door and it does not spin when I press the CD button on the handheld remote. There is no "play" button on the unit nor on the remote.

Your first job is to open up the case of your CD player. This will be more or less difficult depending on the type of device. If you are lucky and have a Hi-Fi separate type device then it will be pretty simple; if you have a mini or midi-system with a built in CD player this could be trickier. Fixing portable CD players is probably only for the uber-patient as it is likely to be very fiddly. The main thing required here is patience and a methodical approach. As you remove screws put them somewhere safe; line them up in the order in which you removed them, or make notes of what goes where. You may reach a point where you think you have taken all the screws out but you still can't get into the case. Here, patience is still the key. Check under stickers for hidden screws or clips. Try and work out where the case is held together. Use the minimum force possible at all times. Now, assuming you have managed to get into the case successfully, and have got access to the CD player we can continue. By now you will probably be able to see the CD tray (the bit that holds the disk) and also some kind of arm which hovers over the disk when the tray is closed. There will usually be a small motor for moving the lens over the disk, and attached to this or nearby there is typically a small circuit board. On this board, or in any case rather close to the read head there can usually be found a small potentiometer . This will usually be a small square component with a plastic disk on top, and this disk will have a slot which is designed to take a small flat head screwdriver. This is what we will be adjusting. However, before doing this it is advisable to use an indelible marker pen (magic marker) to mark the current position of the Potentiometer, so that it can be returned to its original position if necessary. With this done then we are ready to start fixing your CD player. This is essentially a trial and error process. You make a small adjustment to the position of the potentiometer, then try the CD player and see if it is improved. In my experience generally only small adjustments (less than plus/minus 30 degrees of rotation) are usually necessary. Depending on how comfortable you are working with electrical devices there are different ways of going through this trial and error process. If you are unsure of yourself or particularly safety conscious then will probably want to put the case back on the CD player each time you test it because you will probably have to plug it in to do this. However, as you have probably guessed it is not necessary to put all the screws back in. If you are a little more comfortable with electrical devices, e.g. you're the kind of person who never puts the sides on the case of their PC, then you may want to do the testing without putting the case back on the CD player. Obviously, this requires a good deal more caution, but it also makes the whole process quicker. While the device is plugged in, be sure to touch only the player's play and stop/eject buttons, unplugging the device again before making any adjustments. Be sure to keep hands and tools away from the player's power supply unit (PSU)/transformer (if you don't know how to identify this then you had better close the case between tries). Also be aware that the PSU can store power for some time, so it is advisable to leave the unit unplugged for a while between attempts, and not to touch the PSU. After a few attempts it should be possible to find a position of the potentiometer (the little adjustable thing with the slot in the top) where the CD player recognises disks again and plays them without skipping. If, this is the case, then congratulations, you've fixed your CD player. Simply put the case back on and you are ready to rock.

Hope that helps.........

Service required or you could replace the faulty parts, motor, lens and related. maybe a circuitboard issue, hard to say I suggest you have to tested by a pro.

If the CD tray closes and opens properly, that means there's a hardware malfunction inside your receiver and will need to be service.
How old is your FS 2000 system?

How can I connect a Thorens 145 turntable to it?


Your Harman Kardon AVR 85 doesn't have "phono" inputs. That means that you can not connect a turntable to it directly. You will need a "phono preamp" to amplify the very tiny signal from the phono cart enough for the HK receiver to play it. Something like this:

PYLE PRO PP444 Ultra Compact Phono Turntable Preamp

will do it. There are certainly better ones, like:

The problem is the pladder motor that the cd disc sits on, the bearing in the motor is seized or the lubricant has dried out. In order to fix the issue the entire assembly must be replaced or the component stereo. The motor is built in such a way it can not be directly serviced.

Hooking up a turntable to a JVC XM-J50 Via AUX port.


You need a phono pre-amp for magnetic cartridge. This will amplify the magnetic cartridge output from its low level to line level which is required for your amplifier.

This can be bought at most audio-file type distributors and stores. There are different quality levels in these depending on how much you want to pay.
