Jvc rx-dv31 standby light comes on, but wont turn on, just clicks then turns off

So the other day i was jaming some tunes really really loud for over an hour i think while working. then all of a sudden my receiver/dvd combo just shut off. it seemed a bit hot where the power supply is. i opened it up and didnt notice any fuses blow that i found.

i disconnected all cables and plug it into the wall now and the standby light comes on. i press the power button and it just clicks, then turns off, nothing displayed to screen.

i really really love this system, and have looked at replacing it but nothing even comes close to how sweet this thing is. plz help

Our Teac hdr2500t epg Guide stopped working showing only the programme times but not titles. This comes only a couple of days after it stopped allowing me to watch one programme while recording another...

Turn off the unit via the standby button on the remote and pick "passive standby". Next time you turn it on the epg will be back. The other option is to turn off the unit via the power switch at the rear of the unit.

Hi there,

The disc lock function has been activated on your JVC XV-N320, when in this mode the tray cannot be opened or closed.

If you press the 'eject' button whilst pressing down the 'stop' button on the machine in standby mode the disc lock will deactivate. To turn it back on you follow the same procedure. This is also described in the user manual for this model of TV umder trouble shooting on page 13.

Hope this helps,

What region code is my jvc DR-MH30S recorder, and can it be made region free? regards Alan

Asuming you bought in the UK it is region 2. There is software to unlock the region code but this was being sold as a CD on ebay and I really can't recommend that you down that route. James

Can't get my new DVD/VCR to work.

I read the instruction manual one more time. It said to tune my TV to Video and voila, the VCR worked. All JVC VCR's seem to need the tv tuned to Video to play back. I had an older JVC VCR and I had to do the same thing with it.
Thanks anyway.

The amp/receiver JVC RX DV31 is displaying Overheat

Turn off all power, really should wait several hours for the capacitors in side to discharge. Remove the four screws from the sides and three screws from the top cover. Lift from the back pivoting towards the front to remove the cover. Inside you will find three small fuses. One fuse by itself and two close together. The fuse you need to replace is the fuse closest to the rear of the set of two. It is located next to the power clip for the fan. I believe the fuse is a 120v 2 amp fuse but check the board to be sure. if the fan is not working (you should be able to hear it) it will need to be replaced or if the power is not getting to it, a new power source added. I used a 12v 50ma adapter from the junk box.

My dvd player wont work it will just say hello when i turn it on but then it will turn off by itself

I have the same problem. I installed this unit and used it for a total of one day before it complely failed. When you tun it on, the display says hello, nothing is shown on the TV, and it turns itself off within 30 seconds. Solution, I am returning this JVC unit and never purchasing another JVC product again. Complete failure after one days use, pitiful!

Cleaning Lens

To clean the lens, remove cover, take a cotton swab and dip it in rubbing alcohol and rub cotton swab on lens.
This will clean your lens. If the problem persists after the lens is cleaned, than the laser motor is bad, or the timing is off and will need new mechanism.

My JVC DR-M78BU will not play DVDs with a country code of 1. On the back, it has a globe with a 1 in it. It will play Japanese DVDs but not American. I don`t get it. Please help...

Somebody changed the country code on that player. BTW, it is illegal to change the country code on a DVD player. I would call JVC and see if they can fix it - usually they wouldn't, but since your player clearly has a 1 on the back, then they may have a solution.

The following is for illustrative purposes - these are NOT the codes/procedures to unlock your JVC - I merely post them to show you how one might go about changing the codes on your JVC player - once again, this is not the right procedure for your particular JVC player:
To select an alternative region for this player:
  • Press the Power button on the player to turn it off.
  • Wait 5 seconds.
  • Press and hold the buttons DVD Menu and On Screen on the player together, and then press the Power button on the player to turn it back on.
  • Release the DVD Menu and On Screen buttons.
  • Press the Standby button on your player, the display should now show either "TEST 2", "TEST 4" or "TEST 6" depending on the player region.
  • Press the DVD Menu button on your player twice in a row, the display should now show "000 5858".
  • By pressing the Up and Down cursors buttons, change the first three digits until they read "02E".
  • By pressing the Right and Left cursors buttons, change the last four digits until they read "0000" for Region Free, "0101" for Region 1, "0202" for Region 2, "0404" for Region 4.
  • If you experience difficulties with Region 4 discs, change the above setting to "0458" and make sure that PAL or NTSC is correctly set on your player.
  • Press the Enter button on your player to confirm the region change.
  • Press the Standby button on the player to turn it off.
  • Wait 5 seconds.
  • Press the Standby button on the player to turn it on.

FYI, this problem resolved its self. I don't really know how but all I know is the player now works and is came off of standby. It must have just reset itself. ;-) -- Parisima1
