JVC DR-MV7 reads DVD-R won't properly read/write DVD-R or DVD-RW

I purchased a JVC DR-MV7 DVD/VHS recorder over a year ago for my wife. After the first week it would not properly write to DVD-RW. After a couple months it would not properly read DVD-RW. It now doesn't seem to be able to write to any DVD. It reads DVD-R find. After the first month the tray didn't open and close properly. It opens only part way and starts to close again. You have to hold the tray to get the DVD in or out. I bought it on the JVC name, as I have several fine JVC products. I am now considering replacing it all together. Is there a firmware upgrade or something for this unit? I'm trying to figure what the problem can be.

SOURCE: My JVC DR-MV7 will play

My JVC DR-MV7 will not accept any disc for playback. I insert a movie disc and it consistently rejects them. After about 15 to 20 attempts, sometimes it will stay and begin reading the disc. It also sounds like some internal components are encountering some resistance (moving parts inside?). Any ideas?

SOURCE: new dvd will not run

I learned too late to NOT try and do anything fast with this or any such machine. Wait very patiently for the results of the button you just pushed. I'm suffering for my impatience with the same unit. However, you can try this. Mine says it cannot read the DVD-- whether store-bought or one I made. I have gotten it to play by hard-starting the player. Press and hold the On-Off button on the unit for at least 20 seconds. Unplug the unit-- I read for 5 seconds, but do so for about 30. It might not play after the first try, but it did eventually. I'm searching right now for a more advanced re-set-- try to get it back to real factory-- right out of the box. Mine won't format for VR mode, let alone the playing problems I have. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: My JVC DR-MV150B plays prerecorded VHS tapes fine.

Try opening the front hatch of the tape by pressing the small, square button on the right or left (short) side of the tape. Check the black tape inside for any marks, dirt, scratches, tears, etc. If the tape is fine then your unit needs to be cleaned with a tape cleaner available at any electronics specialty or retail store. Good luck to you!

SOURCE: Region free DVD code for JVC DR MV5 VHS/DVD combo

Hi,

Why don't you just go get another DVD that plays all region.

Its pays. It is not certain that you will get the code for free. I have done a little research but seem not to find any code for your player.

To save your self the stress, get an all region DVD player.

All the best.

Does the JVC DR-MV5S DVD recorder/VCR combo unit have an analog tuner or digital tuner, so that you can record one channel while watching a different channel on your TV?


You can read what JVC is telling about the recorder. It is not an digital tuner, but still you can record a DVD and watch another channel or vice versa.

Well, My JVC DR MV1s is reading and records my DVD-R but it stop reading and...


The most common mechanical problems that can prevent a dvd player from playing or reading the discs are the following:

1. The spindle motor not functioning properly (this is by far the most common, if the spindle motor is not spinning the discs then the optical lens can not read them). For the most part it is an cheap part to replace averaging around 25-35 dollars if you can replace it yourself. If you do not know how and have to take it to a repair shop expect to pay 50-75 dollars in labor depending on the area you live in. The best thing is to do some comparison shopping and call the different repair shops and get estimates. The key is to listen closely when you insert the disk into the player, you should be able to hear it spin up. If you hear nothing then that is most likely the problem.

2. The tray could be out of alignment. This is another easy and cheap fix if you have the proper tools. This could happen if you drop or pull/push to hard on the tray (which you should not really do anyway, but always use the open and close button). This is an example picture of the drive assembly with the tray open.

3. The small gears are plastic and often break, this will cause the players other parts to not move and function properly. They are difficult to reach, but inexpensive to replace. It is always recommended that you always order any part from the manufacturer of the device. A visual inspection is usually required to determine if the small teeth have been broken, which requires for the most part taking out the carriage assembly.

4. The small belt drives either break or come off. Again, this will cause the other mechanical parts not to function. They are difficult to put back on as well, so you may need an extra pair of hands if you have not done this before. On average you will usually have 2-3 of them inside your player.

5. The Optical reader has malfunctioned. This is the most expensive thing to replace, so you might consider purchasing another player depending on how much you want to spend and the original cost of the device, unless you can find a great deal on the part you need. You can check to see if the laser is firing with a visual inspection (DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY INTO THE LASER) put in a disc with the case off and you should see the glow of the laser hitting the disc. You can also see the spindle/spindle motor.

6. The tray also has a drive motor which can fail and cause the cd tray not to open and it also has a track that it rides on (located in the drive assembly). Check these two components if you are having problems with your tray not opening and closing properly or stops working completely. Sometimes, the tray will open and then immediately close on it's own. This is usually caused by the track being dirty or some type of debris is lodged in the track. Cleaning the inside of the player with a can of compressed air will help remove dust and dirt. Blowing out the inside of the device once a month is a good preventative maintenance measure.

CAUTION: When working with any electrical device, you should always ensure safety first. Make sure that the device is turned off and unplugged from any power source. This does not completely prevent electrical shocks because Capacitors will hold an electrical charge for some time even if the device is turned off and unplugged.
The following are example pictures of what Capacitors look like:

Clean ? Repareable ? Trash ? Sell as is?


The laser pickup assembly is shot, over time the laser becomes weaker until it can no longer read the disc,it is time to retire the item, far cheaper to replace the entire unit.

Why are you using a CD-R? You need to use a DVD-R! Or DVD+R.
