Question about Audio & Video Receivers
CD player is not working. I am getting not getting any error. It simply saying NO after some time.
I had the same problem. It started when I tried to play an MP3 track from a "Creative Zen Vision M" Media Player. The result was the same as you describe = Maddening. It was extremely annoying that the CD player did not work. I thought I had broken the equipment.
Then my wife read the product hand book , and noticed on page 2 http://jvcmobile.co.uk/documents/products/KD-G431%20Instructions.pdf it showed, where using a pen you can reset the equipment back to the original settings. I thought I might as well give a try. It worked = Fixed. Amazing. I was so relieved. Such an easy solution.
Give it a go. I reckon there is a good chance it will fix your problem, and you will also be very relieved. Just use a basic MP3 player in future. GOOD LUCK !!!

SOURCE: Hello I have a Pioneer XC-L11
It is most likely that the laser pick up is bad. That is the part that reads the disc and is the most common reason. You can try a lens cleaning disc to see if it just needs to be cleaned, but if that does not work you will need to take it in for service. This problem can be caused by several different things, from the spindle motor (spins the disc), to the pick up (reads the disc), or even an IC that controls one of those things. Once you have cleaned the lens, you can also try cleaning the disc's. If a disc has a fingerprint or scratch in the area of the disc that is know as the TOC (table of contents), it will not read the disc. Fingerprints in other areas of the disc will cause the player to skip or even stop playing. I use windex and a soft cloth like a bath towel to clean the disc's, it works as good or better than the disc cleaning kits you can purchase, and it is much cheaper.
If none of this helps, it has a problem that only a trained technician can figure out with the proper test equipment. Then you must decide if it is worth getting fixed. Some service centers offer free estimates, but those are the ones that don't actually check your equipment first before giving an estimate. They just give you a ballpark figure that is usually pretty high. To get an acurate estimate you normally have to pay for it. A technicians time is worth money, my shop charges $25 for an estimate.That is pretty cheap. Some are as high as $65 for an estimate. But if you are paying for an estimate, they will normally at least troubleshoot the unit and determain just what the problem is, compared to a free estimate which is just a guess and a ballpark figure usually high to cover the cost no matter what the problem is. You may also end up paying much more for a repair when you get a free estimate, because you have already approved that amount, and many shops will charge you that much even if they find a simple problem that only takes 30 minutes to fix.
Replacing a pick up normally cost about $125 to $150 because the part can sometimes cost as much as $75.
I hope this was helpful for you and lets you make an informed decision. let me know if you need any more help.

Turn off zone 2 then turn your receiver on the main zone on Radio, tune in a station and check for audio. Post a comment and let me know if audio works that way. If you don't have any audio, list your other equipment makes and models as well as how they are interconnected to your receiver (cable type) and I will help you troubleshoot

SOURCE: how do i get the
m-error means mechanical error, it is caused by faulty gear and lever assemblies under the cd loading carousel . it is very hard to get to those so i do not recommend this repair to be attempted by non-technicians. i fixed lots of them, it was the most common problem in those units

SOURCE: Receiver Power shuts off
The most common problem found on FixYa for Audio Video Receiver's is:
My receiver say's "Protect" or turns on then off. What's wrong? Seven times out of ten it is a shorted speaker or speaker wire. To determine your exact problem, the first step is to disconnect all speaker wires "at your receiver" Next: Turn the receiver back on. If your receiver still says "protect" or turns off, it needs to be serviced. If your receiver stays on; reconnect your speakers one at a time and power back up after each speaker. You may find that after reconnecting all speaker wires it works! Most commonly the small braids of wire from the + to the - have touched and have caused the problem. In some instances, you noticed the problem only when turning the volume up. either way, make sure the exposed wires to your receiver are no longer than 1/2" long and are completely under the screw down terminal or slide in. When you've found the wire or speaker with the problem, your receiver will go back into "protect" At this point, disconnect the wire from the speaker at the speaker that may be causing the problem then test again.* Note* Make sure speaker wires do Not touch each other as this Will cause a short! If you turn the receiver back on and it stays on, you now know the problem is in your speaker itself. To test your speaker, you will need a multimeter. Set it to ohms resistance and touch the speaker terminals, if there is a short internally the meter will read "1......" If it's an analog meter, it will peg to the right. There's your problem. Now, within any speaker there are quite a few possibilities as to what could be causing the problem. Most common is a blown coil and the speaker needs to be replaced. Some speakers have internal crossovers (usually floor standing speakers) and may have a shorted or burnt board (usually very visible brown burn marks on the board) and can possibly be repaired if your handy with a soldering iron. Now, if you disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and it still says "protect" Check your wire for the obvious cut or nail thru the wire if possible. If your system has wiring that runs behind walls, you may need to use your meter again. Disconnect the wire at both ends, keep the ends separated, put your meter on ohms resistance and touch probes to the + and - wires at one side. If the meter pegs to the right or reads "1...." the wire is shorted and needs to be replaced or repaired at the short. Hope this helps.
