Or get a new one. CD players are commonplace these days and you can get a changer that will play at least 300 cd's for $199.

I really wouldn't advise on servicing it because it really isn't worth it and you'll benefit from the added features of the new players which can play other formats like mp3's, do cd-text decoding, etc.

For future refence, don't purchase jvc equipment. For some bizarre reason, the quality of it isn't that great when it comes to longevity.
