Hi,
I am not sure if this will work in your case but worth a try.

- Switch the unit off and unplug from wall
- Open the casing on dvd recorder,
- Disconnect hard drive power and data IDE cable
- Reconnect cables and put casing back and try.

This might work now ...


:)

This is a well-documented fault. In the USA power lobbiests got JVC to recall the units and fix the problem. The fault is a small component that was wrongly specified - when it reaches a set 'maximum' temperature is fails and causes a protection shut down. Over time it fails to allow start up. It is worth finding your nearest JVC approved repairer (if it is out of warranty) and have the recorder repaired.
Here's the official help as in the good old USA -
A limited number of units of certain models of DVD recorders (Models-DR-MV1S, DR-M10S, DR-MH30S, DRMX1S, SR-MV30U) have experienced the symptoms described. While manually resetting the unit, as set forth in the question, restores normal operation, the symptoms may reappear. JVC has identified the cause of these symptoms and will make the necessary adjustments to affected units to eliminate the likelihood that the symptoms reappear. Adjustments will be made free of charge at JVC Factory Service Centers. Click the Factory Service Center link at top left of this page to obtain your nearest location. Please call 1-800-252-5722 and select option 4-3 if you have any questions regarding this process.
Presumably the UK JVC Centres will also carry out these free of charge ! NO SUCH LUCK! We are 'Rip-off' Britain - as always.
Here - for your further understanding - what happens in the UK:
Repairs to JVC products are carried out through the JVC dealer network. All JVC dealers are aware of the technical support that is available from the JVC Service and Engineering Division if required. Unfortunately JVC UK are unable to quote the repair rates for JVC independent service dealers. We recommend that you call these dealers in order that they can communicate their repair charges to you.

The JVC Service Centre in the DE postcode area is: Trade Services, Holbrook Rd, Belper. Tel: 01773 822073

Repair Dealer : Relliance, Babbington Lane, Derby. Tel: 01332 363488

    The PSU board is right on top after removing the
    lid, and you'll probably see one or two of the capacitors have a
    bulging top. Change the lot as caps have a limited life. I am providing you the list of capacitors you have to look at .

LOADING LIGHT KEEPS FLAshing


If 'Loading' flashes for more than one minute, try a reset by unplugging from its power source for 10 seconds than plug it back in and turn it on.

More likely this recorder needs to be serviced.You should contact JVC this issue usually qualifies for a free service program, which means JVC will flip the bill on repairing it if it is shipped to JVC's Service factory and their techs determine it qualifies.

Firmware crashed, unable to get repair in UK


I also have a faulty unit with discs that hadn't yet been finalised. You can access the discs via your PC. I used a program called IsoBuster by Smart Projects. There is a free demo which you can download. Just google it.

As for the faulty power supply, just scrap the unit and DON'T buy JVC again. Eventually, they will have to listen to the economies of scale.........

Loading problem


kinda heath robinson affair this one.
If you buy a usb to IDE adapter, they come with a 5v & 12v power supply.You need to open the unit and connect this to the dvd drive's power.
You'll know it's working if you hear hard drive activity.
The recorder will power down, then just power on and away you go !!
alternativly (not tested) get a ide power cable splitter, but the current might be too much
