Question about JVC XV-SA70 DVD Player

Open Question

Tray Open not detected

System is always in Loading mode. Once tray has opened, the display does not indicate Open as it should. If I manually push on the tray, it self-drives closed but still says Loading until I hold the power button in for several seconds until the system goes into Standby power mode. If I power on with Stop and Play buttons pressed, the display indicates: TEST 06 J and does not change to anything else. Is this likely a sensing issue, or a firmware issue? I have opened up the unit, have removed the player assembly, do not see anything obviously amiss ... dusted it off although did not see anything obviously dirty. If it may be a firmware issue, can someone advise how I can query the current rev installed, and how can I see more information about the self-checks that are being performed? Thanks; Larry. p.s. I know this is similar to some of the other problems posted here, but there have not really been any definitive or specific answers posted.

I also the same JVC XVS-500 DVD that flashes "hello" and then turns off. I took it apart and cleaned it and tried the test and reset; no change.

SOURCE: Stuck on Standby

Do a hard reset. Unplug it from the socket, the DVD and leave disconnected for 4 hours. This may or may not help, but it is a necessary step to restore all internal software codes to their factory settings.

Hope this may help;

I have a JVC VCR/DVD-recorder, model DR-MV7S. It developed a problem... when you placed a DVD on the tray & pressed the "eject/open" button to take the DVD into the recorder, the tray...

This can be due to a faulty LOADING drive settings, It can be due to a misalignment of the loading section and so the load does not reset to the PARK CONDITION of the MODE.
It can be a aulty gear, belt or jamming in the drive.
You need to open the player, remove the mechanism and manually check the forward and loading motion which can confirm. If the belt or the drive is jammed this can be checked and replaced or reset.
Check the mode switch settings of the forward loading.

Open & close disc doesn't work. It is open not but I can't close it. Looks like both open and close don't work.

There are three possibilities for this trouble with this DVD player. The first one is imprper loading function due to loading motor or loading belt trouble. If loading motor is weak [that is its pulling power has gone low] the tray will not close properly into the mechanism, and will not touch the load sensor switch fitted inside the mechanism. If this happens, the main system control IC will detect improper loading and will turn the tray out again to load it properly. Just try to close it without a disc inside the tray, and check whether it closes well. If it does so, or the trouble repeats, change the loading belt first. In most cases, this will retify this type of trouble.
The second one is, bad 'Sled' motor. sled motor is one, which spins the disc inside the mechanism. After proper loading, if the disc do not spin inside it, again the system control IC will sense it, and will eject the tray. The sled motor also is a replacable part.
The third one is, damaged gear wheel in the loading gear section. to detect and repair any of above trouble, you have to open your DVD player, and take the DVD mechanism out of it, and is somewhat semi-skilled work indeed. Check these first. If you want anymore assistance from me, feel free to get be by fixya. If you are somewhat skilled, and have confidence and can follow the diagrams, send your email address to me by FixYa. I'll send the service manual of your DVD player by return mail. All details and disassemblng procedure are in it. OK

The dvd drawer will not open

Possible that the mechanism is faulty , the loading motor is faulty or the loading control drive is faulty.
It will be good to open the unit and check the mechanism for any jamming of the drive. make sure the motor gets supply when eject is pressed if not the loading motor control drive IC is faulty provided the mP is giving in the drive voltage to its input pins.

My husband always operated the DVD player. He has died and now I'm at a loss what to do. I rented a DVD at the video store. I tried to put it into the tray on the DVD player. I had to pull the tray...

Hi, Very sorry for your loss. As always the first step is to make sure the player is connected to the wall outlet and turned on. To put a disk in the DVD you should push the "Eject" button to open and close the tray it looks like a home(a triangle over a dash) on the front side of the box down left corner of the tray. You have the same button on the remote marked "Eject". Push either once, put the disk with the shiny side down on the tray and push the Eject button again to feed the tray back into the player. Usually the disk starts automatically and you will see a menu on the TV with alternatives like "Play the movie", "Setup", "Scenes",... you may highlight the "Play the movie" alternative, using "Up", "Down", "Left" and "Right" and then press the "OK" button. Or just push the "Play" button either on the box or the remote control. If you click "Here "you can download the manual in PDF form. To open it in your pc you'll need "Adobe Acrobat Reader" (or any other PDF reader) installed.
I will gladly answer your questions Best Regards Bruce

My player opens and closes continuously after switching it on, its only a month old

Here are a few possible fixes :
1. Open the micro switches, cleaning the contacts and streching the springs inside the switches a little. The Problem was, that one of the microswitches stayed conductive even when it was off/open.
2. Sometimes the loading belt is at fault. There are microswitches inside which determine the limits of the tray movement. There is one that is activated to indicate that the tray is out and another to indicate that the tray is in. If the belt slips, the inner may not be activated and the system will cause the tray to come out. Try replacing the belt.

How do I enable this player to become multi-region? I believe it's based on a Pioneer rather than one of Teac's own designs.


Thanks for using FixYa. To make it multiregional please follow these step by step instructions using your remote control:

1. Switch power on

2. Open the DVD tray (leave it open with no DVD in it)
3. Press "stop"
4. Press "734466"
5. Use cursor to scroll up or down until it says "Region 0"
6. Press "OK/Enter"
7. Switch power off
8. Switch power on

It show now play all region DVD’s. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

I cannot open the DVD drawer on my Philips DVDR3480 DVD RECORDER – it just won’t open? The screen display just keeps saying ‘Error’. Any help is appreciated.

I have two of these dvd recorders and both have the exact same problem where the drive won't open. It opens fine when there is a disc in the tray. So I just unscrewed the cover, press the white part which would be over the center of the disc as it's trying to open, it should then open. Then just make sure there is always disc left in the tray.

Tray confused

I have an LG DVD player and recorder model # RC7423W and i have a similar problem, when i open up the disk tray it displays open and the tray opens for 2 seconds only and then closes. when i press the open/close button to open it again it opens and never closes back with a "Disc Error" on display until i close it manually by pushing it back inside.
I cleaned it from dust many times and tried to reset it but no reset button. i just tried to unplug the wire and plug it back.
let me know if there is a way that i can reset the hardware or a solution to my problem. my system is around one year old

Disc tray cannot be opened

Hi, The unit is in initialization/reset mode immediately after powerup. It does a self diagnostic sequence. When a fault is detected, it actually locks up till the fault is removed/repaired. A couple of things you can do: 1. Unplug the unit from the mains for a couple of hours; 2. Check your manual if there is a hard/full reset sequence/button and perform it; 3. Remove the topcover and inspect the loading tray. There is a possibility that a CD is stuck, lodged or skewed inside; 4. There is also a possibility that the loading mechanism is stuck, defective belt/gear; 5. if the unit is still under warranty, require service or replacement; or 6. if no longer under warranty, seek the services of a qualified professional. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
