Question about JVC XV-N50 DVD Player

1 Answer

DVD player locks up after 12-13 minutes of use.

After several attempts, I can't find how to reboot, reset or flash my DVD player. I've found other owners of this player who have problems with it locking up after a year of use. Any suggestions?

Dvr-s120 displays "Tray locked"

Look for a tiny hole near the door, then push a straightened-out paper clip into it. Most DVD drawers have a mechanical release of this sort.
The problem is very likely a warped DVD or some other mechanical problem, maybe a broken part inside. You may have to take the unit apart for an inspection (danger -- unplug it and be prepared for damage!) to see what's going on. I assume you've tried unplugging the unit, then plugging back in to reset its software.

Locking up

Unplug DVD player and unhook all attachments, press and hold power for at least 2 minutes, this will remove any residual voltage in the unit and hopefully reset the microprocessor ic. Now install everything back into place and try again, if this fails! I recommend replacing the player.

Dvd player will not eject or play dvd. It just keeps spinning and says "reading." I've tried unplugging for 2 minutes, pushing close/open and stop at the same time(hold for at least 3 seconds)....

Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet and turn the player ON. Attempt to open the disc tray. Depending on the model number of your DVD player, simultaneously press the POWER + STOP + EJECT buttons. If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the DISC1 + STOP + EJECT buttons.6 Jan 2013

The dvd player does not recognise the disc. I have tried several discs all of which work on another player

The Problem is in Laser eye assembly, you can attempt to clean the plastic lens but you must take the unit apart in order to get at it, Q tip with dab of rubbing alcohol, clean lightly in a circular motion and allow to dry for several minutes, if there is no change replace the machine.

Hey wingnutz,

If your HD-DVD player has been locking up after a recent firmware update, you may wish to attempt rebooting/resetting the unit before considering any kind of repair option.

First I would suggest seeing if you can enter the "Setup" menu from the "Welcome" screen. If you are able to do so, under the "Maintenance" option there should be a command called "Initialize." After selecting this command, you will need to turn the player off and unplug it for several minutes. This should cause the unit to reset.

If doing so does not resolve the problem, you may wish to then look for a pinhole reset button on the back or underside of the player. Typically players that have a reset button will return to their original factory settings when this button is depressed. Please keep in mind that not all HD-DVD player models will have such a feature, so you may wish to refer to your owner's manual documentation for more information.

Alternatively, many products (DVD players, computers, etc.) will have what is often referred to as a "soft reset." This is typically done by pressing and holding the power button down for 10 to 15 seconds.

Should your player still be stuck on the "Welcome" screen after trying all of these, you may need to contact Toshiba or a local repair technician for further assistance. Remember that if you are unsure where your local repair facility is, you may always obtain service and repairs by bringing your player into your local Best Buy™ store.

Hope this helps you out.

Cant play anything on it

I had the same problem, After googling for a few minutes I found the reset procedure for this player.

1. Turn it on.
2. Eject any disk you have in there and close the tray.
3. Hold down the "STOP" button on the player (not remote) until the green light flashes red and the system reboots.
4. Insert disk and enjoy.

This worked for me... mileage may vary.

System constantly re-booting

While this post is very late to answer this question, here is where I found a solution with the DVD still inside. When I used this solution, the whole system reset and worked.

"I had the exact same problem tonight. I put in a DVD and it locked my Toshiba RS-TX20 up. It simply wouldn't respond to anything but unplugging. Then it went into this infinite loop of trying to power up.

I finally got it to boot:

Hold the eject button on the unit continuously while it boots up (be patient!). It didn't open the tray until a couple minutes into the powering up process. After I took out the disc, it booted up normally at the next try.

I am guessing that there's a very small window during the booting process that the dvd drive isn't locked and you have to push the eject button in that small window to get the tray open. Since we don't know when the drive is unlocked, the best bet is to hold down the eject button continuously.

I hope this helps!"
