JVC TH- C3 disc tray is stuck

I placed a DVD in #1 position to play and the tray is stucl . I cannot open any of the 5 tray, hence can't play any CD's or DVD's. As far as I can tell none of the CD's seem stuck in the trays ... seems like an electrical freeze. Any ideas how to fix it? The radio works ...

SOURCE: Tray issues

I have had this a few times and it is a pain. You have to completely remove the DVD unit from the chassis (ribbon cables and all). Once out, you turn it upside down and you will see a set of gears that drives the trays in/out. Manually rotate the gears to reset the tray position (one will likely be out of place when you open it up or a DVD will be skewed causing it to bind). This is not for the faint of hearted or non-mechanically enclined. This particular DVD changer unit is troublesome and finicky to deal with. I have also found that copied DVD's cause this to occur due to some issues with disc detection.

SOURCE: Listen to DTV DVR output on TH-C3

im not familiar with this model. can i assume it is a small home theatre system with limited inputs?
in that case, the best thing to do is to feed all your devices...cable, dvr, dvd, etc....into the tv.(audio and video). then use the audio output of the tv to the input on the receiver. you may have to go into the tv menu and set the audio output to the speakers in the tv to fixed mode for a constant level out to the receiver.
good luck

SOURCE: i hv a JVC th-s3 dvd player who's dvd tray is

You have to remove the changer assy. See why it's jammed and retime it. I have seen a lot of these with jammed changers. If you remove the dvd assy from the bottom there are 2 gear sets to the side. 1 moves trays up and down and the other draws tray in and loads the disc. All I can say is if you are mechanically inclined you can figure it out. If not have it serviced.

Given that this system sells for under $100.00, I can tell you it will cost you more to repair it then it would to purchase a new system. I was able to find a comparable one from JVC here : http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-JVC-TH-S11B-HOME-THEATER-SYSTEM-205-WATTS-DVD-MP3_W0QQitemZ110441308049QQcmdZViewItemQQptZHome_Theater_in_a_Box?hash=item19b6d09f91

TRAY LOCKED HENCE IS RESISTANT TO OPEN


BE VERY VERY CAREFUL WHILE TRYING IT :

(1) USE SOME HARD PLASTIC NEEDLE.

(2) TRY TO LOCATE A VERY LITTLE WHOLE BENEATH YOUR DVD TRAY.

(3) PUSH YOUR NEEDLE IN THAT WHOLE SLOWLY, GRADUALLY INCREASING PRESSURE.

(4) IT WILL CAUSE THE TRAY TO OPEN, ONCE IT OPENS A LITTLE, YOU MAY SLOWLY PULL IT TOWARDS YOURSELF AND REMOVE YOUR CD/DVD FROM THERE.

(5) REMEMBER TO TURN OFF YOUR PLAYER FROM MAINS BEFORE TRYING.

(6) IF YOU FIND YOURSELF UNCOMFORTABLE DOING SO, CALL YOUR CUSTOMER CARE CENTER / SERVICE CENTER. IF WARRANTY HAS EXPIRED, YOU MAY CALL ANY OUTSIDE PROFESSIONAL OR A COMPUTER HARDWARE PROFESSIONAL.

BE VERY VERY CAREFUL NOT TO INSERT ANY GOOD CONDUCTOR OBJECTS IN THAT TRAY WHOLE OR YOU MAY GET AN ELECTRIC SHOCK ALSO!!!

Have a panosonic dmr-ez485v dvd recorder that cycles 5/6x when tray is closed with/without a dvd, and get "no read' message.


1.The DVD Drive makes two-three times noise than stop spin the media CD
or DVD.

-Bad DVDRW Drive.
2 The drive does spin CD-DVD but doesn't load.
-. Bad NDMi PCB VEP79180 or VJB79180
3. Drive spinning but don't load CD or DVD
More chance Bad Drive or Problem with drive PCB.

Open top Cover of drive, open tray,
close tray.
If laser flashed but doesn't play CD-DVD more chance bad drive PCB

DVD tray makes noise when it rotates


This noise can be casued by two things:

1) The tray is not completely in the loaded position and the "clamper" is rubbing. Replace the loading belt and the loading sequence will complete and the noise should stop.

2) The "CD table" that is part of the spindle motor assembly has slipped a bit. This will make the CD/DVD ride too low and strike the lower tray support. This will require that the table be "re-aligned" to the proper height which may not be possible on your model without special measurement equipment. The height is critical to proper operation of the unit.


Try replacing the load belt first and report your results.

Thanks,
Dan

We have the RCA RS2767i Home Stereo with 5-disc changer and ipod dock. The CD Tray won't eject or shuffle...everything else works fine. It seems the disc tray isn't responding to anything. We read in the...


Let me respond with a possible solution although I'd bet that both of you already tried these.

The reason I checked into this is because I'm looking for a new mini system. I happen to be at Target and they only had 2 models - this one and a SONY. I certainly didn't want to buy the RCA given these problems, so I asked the salesperson, who seemed to have some knowlege.

As far as opening the tray on top, there is a button to push right under the tray. The button has an icon of a triangle on it. This seems to be somewhat of a standard icon for opening the tray or ejecting a CD (my car's CD has the same icon for ejecting a CD).

As far as only being able to get 3 CD's out, there is another button under the tray marked "disc skip". This rotates the tray. When you open the tray, you can only get to 3 of the CD's. When you push disk skip, it rotates the tray one position, so you can get the 4th one out. Another push and now you can get the 5th one.

Sometimes my CD changer doesn't shuffle the disks. If I only have 1 CD or DVD in it and push the tray open button, the disk stays in the unit and the tray revolves to an intermediate position. I push the button to put the tray back and try disc skip; that usually works.

If your problems are not solved per above, then I definitely do NOT want to get this.

Epson stylus r1800 problem with printing on cd/dvd


Try this :

Disconnect the printer from the computer.
Turn it off & make sure the CD/DVD tray is closed then turn it back on.

***

Here's generic instruction for you:

If you are receiving an error pertaining to the CD TRAY NOT BEING INSERTED CORRECTLY, please do the following:

Recommendations:
-Don't force the CD/DVD tray into the printer.
-Make sure your printer is powered on, and the output tray is in the upper position.
-Please ensure there is at least 3 inches of space behind the printer, or the CD tray may eject.

Included, are the correct CD/DVD loading instructions. Please follow the instructions below:

CD/DVD LOADING:
1. Ensure the printer is powered on. Remove any paper from the sheet feeder.
2. Push in the paper support extension on the printer, and close the paper support.
3. Push in the output tray extensions, but leave the tray open.
4. Lift the output tray. Place one hand on the top of the printer, and pull up on the output tray until it stops. Lay the tray down in the upper position.
5. Place the CD or DVD into the CD TRAY with the white (or printable) side facing up. Note: To print on small 8cm CDs, please place the small CD ring on the tray first, then place the CD inside the ring.
6. Slide the tray into the tray guides located in the output tray. Push in the guide until the arrow on the tray matches up to the arrow on the tray guide.
7. Press the PAPER button to load the CD/DVD into the printing position. The CD is correctly loaded when the printer's POWER button stops flashing.

General tips for CD and DVD printing:
-Burn data/video/images onto CDs or DVDs before attempting to print on them.
-Do not use thermal-printable or regular CDs or DVDs in the printer.
-Moisture or fingerprints on the printable surface of the CD may cause marks or smearing to appear after printing.
-All printable inkjet media is different. Some surfaces will absorb ink better than others. If output appears banded, faded, or streaky, print a Nozzle Check pattern to confirm that all colors of ink are printing completely. If the ink does not completely dry or smears after 24 hours curing time, you may need to use the Epson Print CD tools to adjust (lower) the print density.
-The only supported resolution for CD/DVD printing is 1440 dpi (aka "Photo")
-Borderless printing and printing on the "inner circle" (plastic around central hole) of CDs is not supported.
-Do not use the "print preview" feature provided by the Epson printer driver as it will only show the image on a blank field and does not offer a clear indicator of where the image will print.
-The Epson Print CD software works best with JPG images and may not import some TIFF images.

CD player ate a CD!!


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.

Code for multi region free


I figured out the code, it's printed incorrectly many places.

1 - Turn on DVD Player
2 - Press Open/Close button - open tray
3 - Press "8888"
4 - Put a DVD in the tray (from outside your region)
5 - Press Open/Close button - close tray
6 - Voila! It plays!

Works on mine!
