I have a JVC FS-S77 mini component system that has 5 individual CD trays and we've used it without a hitch for several years. Tonight is played through all tracks of a CD and just seemed to stall.
When I opened the tray that had just played it was empty. Now, needless to say, nothing will play, even from the other trays. My CD is stuck somewhere inside but before I dismantle the unit I'd appreciate any insight if someone has had a similar experience with their players.
I fixed the same issue by forcibly pulling individual trays to their open position. I removed the casing to gain better access (tons of screws) but you can probably gain clear access to the shelfs without removing the casing if you have good needlenose plyers. I found a stuck CD within one of shelfs, wedged WITHIN the moving components of the shelf. It works perfectly now.

When you hit the eject button do you hear a motor running? that should be the sound of the loading mechanism trying to eject the tray.
it sounds like the tray has come off the guides a comon problem with kids pushing the tray in rather than pressing the button. if the teeth on the track are ok then it is just a case of opening it up and putting the tray back
Protect mode will kick in whenever a fault is detected.
You get the unit not powering up, and sometimes you hear a clicking
noise, that is the protection switch that keeps shutting down the unit.
Causes that can start protect mode are:
Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.
Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In
