Question about JVC DR-MV7 DVD Recorder/VCR
A few days ago, I went to turn on this unit and it appeared to be completely dead. I tried holding the standby/on button for more than 5 seconds without any results. I unplugged the unit from the entertainment center, put it on a table, took off the cover, front panel and then connected the power cord. I can see a small red light under the dvd player. I pushed the power button and the DVD eject button several times and started to hear a soft bumping noise. I tightened screw located in the same approximate area as the DVD eject button and suddenly the clock flashed dashes several times and the vcr head moved. The clock dashes turned solid and when I hit power the "HELLO" appeared. Everything was working. I plugged it back into the entertainment center and everything worked fine. Yesterday, while I was at work, the power went out at my house. When I got home the unit was dead again. I repeated the above steps and it works again.
Is it a power problem? What should I do to fix it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: VHS won't work
Had the same problem on my JVC vcr/dvd combo unit.
You need to turn off the timer function. I did this by making sure my remote was in the "VHS" mode...turn the swith from TV to the right (found on the remote in the upper left corner...an then hit the "vcr" button. Then point the remote at the VCR unit and hit the No. 4 button (timer turns off). Your unit should not have the red timer displayed and you should be able to play your tapes okay.
Hope this helps.
