    JVC X'eye Problem

    So my JVC X'eye will no longer play cd games. Every time I put a disc in, it will only go to the cd player. It will play the music tracks but I can't get it to load a game. It plays cartridges fine.

    Anyone have any ideas here?

    Thanks in advance.

    Does the laser assembly move and try to read the disc? Try cleaning the laser and lube the motor. You may need a new assembly though. It's pretty straight-forward to replace. You can find a generic one on eBay.

    I would just replace the laser assembly honestly. With the age of these machines the lasers are just getting old. I just changed the laser in a friends PC Engine Duo and now it's working great. Prior to the change it was loud and not loading certain games.

    Thanks to everyone for their replies.

    If I want to replace the laser assembly does the process involve any soldering?

    IIRC I had to desolder a solder bridge between 2 pads on the replacement assembly or something like that. YMMV depending on the specific replacement model used.

    Yea the lasers tend to have a solder blob for transit, just remove it. The laser is easy, Google for guides. gL

    Might be worth trying to clean with a qtip dabbed in isopropyl alochol. The Sega CD is one of the more sensitive disc based game systems, sometimes even a dust speck can get in the way of it properly loading games.
