    If all else fails, read the instructions

    The stereo in my Bayliner refused to play, or eject the CD. So I dug out the owners manual and found a section in there for troubleshooting.
    It had me pressing (in the south: mashing down on them) two buttons simultaneously. The third set was called "reset entire microprocessor" and the CD popped itself out. I reinserted it and it played properly It ejected and another one played.
    I am a retired engineer and have written them so I look for troubleshooting instructions in product manuals.
    Thank You JVC corp.

      My electronics degree permits me to void warranties, and owners manuals make great beer coasters. lol.

        The profit: I am of the type where I try it their way before trying it my way.
        When I worked for a company doing consumer electronics, I would get a
        non-electronics person to operate the equipment and I could annotate my manuals.
        A manual is written for those who do not have electronic degrees.

              Comes from writing too many gov't spec instructions. And from too much book-learning.
