if you have a jvc dvd vhs burner dr-mv1s or the dr-m10 with the loading that continues to flash with no control of the unit at all there is the first step to take witch is a master or hard reset. done by holding the stop and power buttons at the same time for 10 or more seconds till it powers of then on again.
if this does not work or has no reaction to the unit at all them repairs will have to be made.
i have scowered the internet for fixes for this issue and have found a few interesting things but nothing concrete at all. but lead me in the correct area of the issue. although jvc was fixing these for free at one time they are no longer servicing them under their "free fix"
the problem with the unit is the power supply and although i found that easily on the web. i could not find what the exact problem was untill i did my own diagnostic testing and found that capasitor c5207 on the power supply board was bad and buldging/leaking. it is a 1500uf 6.5v @85 degrees witch i used a 105degree due to the temp and relating the issue with a bad design flaw. so use the higher temp rating one to insure long lasting use.
don't forget to preform the master/hard reset previously mentioned above and you will be back up and running in no time.
This player is equipped to do a self power on test to all pain parts of the player to assertain everything is ok. The blue light will keep flasing until it completes its task and then the blue light will stop flashing and you you can start reusing it.....................sodeep
Hello, Try to hard reset the DVD unit or some DVD unit have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons .Leave it unplugged for 4-6 hours and then plug it again and use..If this did not help Try to contact a service centre or service person because this is probably a hardware problem which definetly needs service and replacement!!...Thank you..

This is an issue for this machine. It happened to me, and after some internet research, I found that JVC acknowleged it (on their web site). The unit was still under warranty, and JVC had me ship it to them for repair. It was fixed... for about a year.
It started doing the same thing recently. I only had enough time to discover that I hadn't purchased any extended warranty, then the thing quit altogether. Wouldn't even power up, wouldn't eject the tape or DVD that were inside.
I gave up, and took the case off to recover the tape and DVD. What I found inside was what looked like any DVD or CD drive from any computer. Since I had a case for an external IDE drive, I hooked it up to my Mac using that drive.
Good news! Not only did it eject my DVD when I pushed the button, I found that my Mac with OS X Tiger recognized the drive! With absolutely NO software installation (not even a driver), My Mac now burns DVDs beautifully on that drive using Toast. At least I salvaged something really good from that piece of junk sold by JVC.
