Re: DR-C500 problem with turning the system ON

Make sure all power connectors, cords and plugs are inserted securely and that the outlets are in good working order Be sure to select an audio source (CD, AM/FM, etc.) For powered systems, unplug the power pack for a few seconds, and then reconnect it. This allows the unit to reset itself after a power surge or power interruption. good luck!

Changer draw does not open?

I had the same issue a long time ago and it turned out that the belt that drive the opening mechanism was slippery, Replacing the belt solved the issue.

You may try to gently help the drawer with you hands to see if the belt is only slippery or maybe is completely gone.

My JVC DR-M78BU will not play DVDs with a country code of 1. On the back, it has a globe with a 1 in it. It will play Japanese DVDs but not American. I don`t get it. Please help...

Somebody changed the country code on that player. BTW, it is illegal to change the country code on a DVD player. I would call JVC and see if they can fix it - usually they wouldn't, but since your player clearly has a 1 on the back, then they may have a solution.

The following is for illustrative purposes - these are NOT the codes/procedures to unlock your JVC - I merely post them to show you how one might go about changing the codes on your JVC player - once again, this is not the right procedure for your particular JVC player:
To select an alternative region for this player:
  • Press the Power button on the player to turn it off.
  • Wait 5 seconds.
  • Press and hold the buttons DVD Menu and On Screen on the player together, and then press the Power button on the player to turn it back on.
  • Release the DVD Menu and On Screen buttons.
  • Press the Standby button on your player, the display should now show either "TEST 2", "TEST 4" or "TEST 6" depending on the player region.
  • Press the DVD Menu button on your player twice in a row, the display should now show "000 5858".
  • By pressing the Up and Down cursors buttons, change the first three digits until they read "02E".
  • By pressing the Right and Left cursors buttons, change the last four digits until they read "0000" for Region Free, "0101" for Region 1, "0202" for Region 2, "0404" for Region 4.
  • If you experience difficulties with Region 4 discs, change the above setting to "0458" and make sure that PAL or NTSC is correctly set on your player.
  • Press the Enter button on your player to confirm the region change.
  • Press the Standby button on the player to turn it off.
  • Wait 5 seconds.
  • Press the Standby button on the player to turn it on.

Not responding after flashing "loading" for 1 minute then get message R-Lk --:-- on display

Hard drive issue or power supply. Power supply prone to bad capacitors (look for leakage/swollen tops)
If hard drive faulty you'll need a new one which is no small task. Disk contains firmware and custom file system and smallest I've got image is 10.7gig

Tray won't open

Have a professional open it up to check so not to further damage the device. If you want to do it your self, you can open it up, just make sure your warranty is not void by doing so...

A possibility is that the tray has a lodged cd in it...

Onkyo DR-C500 won't recognize discs

Onkyo units as well as several other manufacturers have a common problem where the spindle motor gets intermittant or wont come up to speed.Its not hard to replace this motor, but could be a trick to adjust the platter height. Also the unit probably needs a servo alighnment as well. This unit could also have a simple problem as a dirty laser lens. You can try to use a disc lens cleaner to see if that helps. Good Luck
