On loading the CD, the system flashes the message "Reading" forever but does not play the CD. It does not even spin the CD so that I know that it is actually trying to read it. It looks like the CD is not getting loaded at all. This is a 5 CD system. The CD drawer has a plate underneath that perhaps takes the CD in to the reader. This plate is missing from the 4th drawer. It looks like this plate is jammed inside and is not allowing any CD to be taken to the reader. Can somebody suggest how to fix this.
Before doing the bin job buy a cd laser cleaning disc as it sounds like the lens is dirty. if it was machanical it would not say reading. as it will only say this if the disc has actually sat on the drive spindle. if you smoke its a big no no with laser equipment as a laser has two two way mirrors inside and a film of niccotine on them doesnt help.
Seems like the 4th tray is jammed and has probably caused the mechanism to go out of alignment. Re- alignment without replacing faulty mechanical components such as gears/ levers, which may be responsible for the units current state, is a waste of time. Relapse would be imminent. Re-alignment is a difficult task even with service information and spares provided to an experienced technician.
Seeing the number of similar complaints with the same model and history of re-occurence post repair, it might be worthy to get this unit fixed only if it still is under warranty. Spending money to get these stacked tray mechanisms fixed might not be such a good idea. The carrousel cd changers are more reliable although they consume more space.
Get yourself an i-pod or any external mp3 device, connect it via usb or aux, and continue to enjoy the amplifier and tuner of this unit.

You have a short in the internal power of this unit. It is going into protect and shutting itself off to keep it from damaging anymore of the internal electronics. Very likely a voltage regulator has gone bad or a power capacitor has gone bad. You will not be able to repair this yourself unless you are skilled in electronic repair. I would suggest contacting the manu and seeing if they have a authorized repair shop in your area. If not ask around and see who is a reputable repair shop in your area.
Most likely he has a couple of the connectors crossed. It is going in protect mode to keep it from damaging the internal electronics. Open it back up and double check all connections. then let me know.
I've got a jvc hx-d7 i am working on for a friend, he had it repaired once at a shop with this same problem, they replaced two 42v 2200mf caps. and one A1273 this solved the problem for 8months now its doing it again. I am trying to locate the A1273 to repair it again. Hope this helps.
I had a similar problem, and took it to an authorized repair shop(under warranty), the kept it six months, and JVC finally admitted there are solder connections with that model, and six months later, we got a new unit. I will buy Sony next time
