JVC CA-D4T problem with 3 disc CD changer. When CD(s) are loaded and a disc selection is made, CD starts to jump tp the next CD only to jump again to the next CD and so on. Appreciate if you can give me an idea on whether or not this can be repaired. Thank you.

The failure with 3 disc CD changer is that it does not read the CDs and once it can not read it, it goes to the next until all the CD are check but could not read them, it will give the "No Disk" on the display. This failure is the lens that is defective or you could try to use a lens cleaner and see if that helps.
The cost for a repair might exceed the price of a new one or the service parts are no longer available.
If your device is less then a year, it would still be under manufacturers warranty.

It can be repaired, but depending on what the actual problem is will determain how much the cost is.

If is reads the first disc and after playing for a little while it goes to the next disc, it would be a problem with either the laser pick up, spindle motor, or gears that advance the laser pick up as it reads the disc. Most likely something with the gears. Any type of debris in those gears will cause the player to get hung up in that spot and it may just go to the next disc.

I have a feeling that your cd player never starts playing the disc (you never mentioned it it does), and just goes from one disc to the next.

If it never plays any disc and just goes from one disc to another trying to read them and then advancing to the next disc, it may be just a lens cleaning that is needed. It could also be one of the other problems mentioned above, but cleaning the lens is the first place to start.

You can try a lens cleaning disc, if it helps, that is all you need. If it does not help, you really will need to have it serviced. There are many different things that can cause a cd player to not read a disc. The only end user fix would be to clean the lens of the laser pick up. All other problems would require a technician who is experienced with repairing cd players.

This must a pretty new model, the JVC service website does not have any service manuals on it yet. I work at an authorized JVC service center and have not seen this model there yet. Or it could be that it is so old, they do not have electronic data on it. That is the 2 ways the JVC site would not have service information posted online.

Let me know if I can be of any further help. I have repaired many hundreds of cd players over the last 18 years of work as an audio technician. With more details of your problem I may be able to help more.

    It is a minor fix if all it needs is the lens cleaned. Try a lens cleaning disc and see if it works. If not, you need it serviced. There is no way to tell for certain what a repair would cost if it needs more than a cleaning. There are around 5 to 10 different things that can cause that same symptom, so anybody who says they know what it is causing the problem would only be guessing. I have repaired hundreds of cd players and I know this for a fact.



    Some of the things that cause this problem may ony cost $65 to $100. The problems that would cost more would be if the laser pick up needs to be replaced or if the problem is a servo IC or DSP IC causing the problem. Those problems can cost anywhere from $100 to $200 depending on the labor rates of the shop, and the mark-up of the parts. Not all repair shops charge the same prices. But the only way to be certain what is wrong is to have it checked out by a technician who knows how to repair cd players. First try cleaning the lens, that is the only end-user type of fix that can be done. If it works, you are done.



    If you get a free estimate, you will only be getting a free guess at what the problem is and it is usually a higher estimate to make sure they can cover whatever the problem is. When you pay for an estimate the shop will usually give you a more acurate estimate because the technician will troubleshoot the unit to see what is wrong and not just guess at the most likely problem. Nobody works for free. So a free estimate would not include a technician troubleshooting the unit, it is too risky for a repair center to pay a technician to troubleshoot a unit and maybe not get paid for it. That's why a paid estimate is usually a more acurate estimate and why a free estimate is just a guess (sometimes a very good guess, sometimes not)

What radio station do I need to be able to listen to cd?


All you are required to do is to insert the disc into the player or changer and then set the player to the CD function.
When the selected disc is loaded, then it would play and you can control the tracks.

Jvc ch-x350 12 disc cd changer. Loads cd but will not play it. reads: no disc and moves to the next cd and repeats. ??


If you are inserting non original cds, cds you make from your pc or cd copies sometimes they dont read, another reason is to make sure that you are inserting the disk with the correct side up, it will show you in the cd changer magazine slots. If none of this solves your problem then you have a defective cd mechanism and you need to replace or repair the changer. Very common problem with JVC Cd Changers, I used to replace them all the time and they tend to skip alot as well, get yourself a Pioneer if money is ok if not then follow my steps.

Good luck and dont forget to rate and vote for me if I helped you.

Thanks.

My JVC stereo receiver :CA-D4T has 3 cd changers and they don't seem to work most of the time


This is an indication that either the lens is dirty or that the optics are failing. Try opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that does not resolve the problem, the optics will need to be replaced.

Loading disc


First try to clean the laser lens. There are disc's you can buy for that purpose. They a tiny little area on the disc that has some very fine brushes that will clean the lens somewhat. It is not as good as having a technician clean it, but it can help.

Sounds like you may have a bad laser pick up or spindle motor, sometimes it can even be something in the servo circuit for the laser or the dsp ic.

since it loads everything good, the only thing you can do to ensure it is not something simple is to make sure the disc's are not loaded the wrong way and they are clean and scratch free as possible. Sometimes a fingerprint or scratch on a disc on the inner most part of a disc will keep it from being able to be played. That is the area the TOC (table of content) is located. If the laser can't read that area, it can't read any of the disc.

Hope this was helpful, I have repaired lots of cd changers and players over the last 15 years and if it is not something simple, then it will need to be serviced.
