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.

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.

I saw on another JVC systems manual that its an error message that shows when the tray isn't fully open due to an obstruction.
If you can locate a manual eject button(usualy you'll need to insert some tip into it) it will help you eject the tray and look for any obstructions, anything looking out of the ordinary there.
at least that way you'll be able to take your cds out...
You can also try disconnecting the system from all power sources for a few days(including an internal battery), maybe the reset will jog it back to working order.
If you're out of warranty and know your way around those things, try taking it apart, cleaning as much as you can, and look for anything out of the ordinary, like broken gears or pins, bent parts, a cog, etc.
