Question about JVC KD-HDR1 CD Player
I have a JVC KD HDR1, While driving for 30 min or more the CD player heats up my CD's that's playing, the longer I drive the CD will start playing distorted and then any bump in the road will have the CD skipping. Once I eject the CD it will be very hot. Any solution?
The reason the CD it is gettng hot is because of the amplifier IC in the radio. The CD player is right in front of the amp IC and it is all in an enclosed area with little ventilation. They do get hot after a while.
It is not unusual for a CD to get hot after playing for a while.
The JVC stereos are known for having a bad spindle motor. That can cause the problem you are describing. A bad laser pick up can also cause the same thing.
There is no way of knowing just what the cause of your problem is without having it tested by a technician.
The laser pick up is more prone to failure from heat if it is getting weak.
The spindle motor is a little more common problem with the JVC car CD players.
But I have repaired both of those problems in JVC CD players many times.
I work at a JVC authorized service center, Most of the JVC CD players use the exact same CD mech, whether it is a cheap unit or a more exspensive one.
The only user action that you can do is to run a cleaning disc thru it for about 20 to 30 seconds. But that is not going to change your problem, you need to have it checked out at a service center, but if it is not under warranty it may not be worth getting fixed. The repair can run from $70 to $125 depending on the rates of the service center.
If you need any more help or questions answered, feel free to ask. And if this was helpful to you a good rating would really be appreciated.
