Question about JVC Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a JVC DR-MH300SEK HDD/DVD Recorder which, when powered up, runs through its initialisation routine ("please wait" flashing on the display and "HDD DVD Recorder" splash screen on the Scart output to the TV) but when finished will not allow me to turn on the unit to enter the auto set mode. The display at this point shows "--:--" for the clock and a flashing red timer record symbol. It then stays like this and will not respond to any button pushes on either the front panel or the remote unless I press and hold the STOP and STANDBY buttons which reset the unit. However, this will then re-start the initialisation routine which then ends up with the same result. My conections to the unit when doing this are a known good aerial feed to the RF input and a Scart lead on the output. Any ideas, please?

SOURCE: DVD locked in and door is not opened

For those users who just bought their machines, I would suggest warranty service. Roxanne2 should contact Philips directly with the seiral number, and they should be able to say which store they sold it to. That unit probably has a bad internal DVD writer drive.
The following solution should only be done if your machine is out of warranty unless you get permission from the manufacturer, as it will likely void the warranty otherwise:
Unplug the unit, disconnect all cables and move it to as static-free of an area as possible. Remove the cover, which usually means removing a lot of screws. Most DVD recorders have regular drives like you see in PCs. There is usually a tiny hole in the lower-right part of the drive that you can stick a small wire into, such as an unbent paper clip. You can then manually pull the drive open to get the DVD out.

SOURCE: DMR-ES30V remote and DVD panel buttons not responding

I assume you have fixed this by now, but if not, call panasonic's help line (number is in your owner's manual). They will walk you through the complete reset process (maybe 5 minutes). you will have to re-program everything the same as you did when it first came out of the box, but that doesn't take too long. Also, first try taking the batteries out of the remote. Make sure they are still good. Wait 60 seconds or longer, then replace batteries.

Replace D5103 and D5105 ( Under Heatsink! ). As a precaution replace C5103 and check R6108 and R5109. Any electrolytic capacitors with domed tops should be replaced. This fix also cured machine that flashed the DVD and HDD lamps but had no other functions.

JVC DR-MH30 keeps flashing ''loading'' after recent power cut


Measure the 5V line on the DVD drive,if to low replace the bad caps in power supply.There is an 22 microfarad elco you can upgarde to 47 microfarad to last longer.
If the 5V line is ok the problem could be the harddisk,this is not traceable without the proper software.

PROBLEM WITH MY DVD-HDD VIDEO RECORDER


Yes there is a high probability that the 5v power supply has suffered damage. Anyways just check if the drive is ejecting properly without placing any DVD. If it doesn't then its confirmed that the ps is the culprit. try it and let me know..

Just had the 2nd diagnosis for the error - "digital PCB" at a cost of £252 - BONKERS! Have e-mailed JVC to see if they can make the cost of the repair reasonable, got a positive reply they want me to send my proof of purchase, serial no etc. & they'll consider dropping the cost significantly. On top of that just found same model on ebay, ex display £130. baught it, was prepaired to pay upto same for the repair - gunna swap HDD for mine when it arrives, the stuff on there was the main reason i wanted it repaired. Still gunna try to get mine fixed for nowt though through JVC! May as well try for nothing!

"please wait"!


Is there not a drawer open/close button? Please wait usually indicated wrong type of disk and it is not being read or faulty laser. Switch it off and switch on then press the drawer release before it starts trying to read.
