Question about JVC DR-MV7 DVD Recorder/VCR

Open Question

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.

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.
