Re: Unit in constant Loading state

Same problem on my JVC DR-DX5SU. Says "loading..." and will not respond. Factory solution is to quickly unplug and plug / or unplug for several hours and plug-in. I suspect that is to cold start and clear error flags. Did not work for me. I looked at the power supply board (immediately behind the DVD drive, on top of the hard disk). I noticed one capacitor was "bulging" on the top. See photo. Electrolytic caps should never be bulging - if anything, the top should be slightly concave.Cap was SAMXON 1500uF,10V,1400mA ripple - I suspect either voltage or current ripple spikes were exceeding its capability. Replaced it with a Panasonic EEUFR1C182 (, 1800uF, 16v, 2470 ripple current, to give it extra margin. Runs correctly now.1_30_2013_1_21_49_pm.jpg

Re: Unit in constant Loading state

Send the unit to the JVC Service Center with a note explaining the problem, your name, and address. They will likely replace a few resistor and your machine should act like new.

Portable dvd player lights up but states

likely either a issue with the mechanism or a power supply problem with the unit.

Not likely to be a do it yourself repair--unless unit was expensive it will likely be cheaper to replace it than repair it.

Dvd will not eject

You would have to open the unit to see if something is jammed in the mechanism--failing that and considering the low costs- just buy another--I see them for sale for as little as 20 dollars new now.

I have a DVD stuck in the machine; on the front display it states a flashing "LOADING"; cAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME GET THE dvd DISC OUT?

If you are comfortable removing the the cover and going inside the unit you can remove the dvd player or just lift it out partially to access the front of the dvd player. It has a eject button on the buttom right hand corner , its a dvd player-recorder that can be hooked up to PC, same power connector but you have to remove that adapter connector for the IDE cable on the PC. You need some sort of dvd player software on your PC to run it, there some free ones out there or trial versions. Works quite well even on a older PC (900Mhz Pentium 3,128 MB RAM). Hope this helps you out, good luck. Don't forget to unplug the unit before going in.

Continuous flashing loading

Same problem here. Nothing seems to work... Pressing any key makes no difference. Disconnected the power - nothing.

Dvd eject button does not respond

Had a similar problem after loading a suspect dvd (one I had buned myself) Could not do anything - stuck at loading.
Try this :
  1. Unplug and wait 10 seconds
  2. plug it back in and wait 1 minute. DO NOT PRESS ANY BUTTONS!
  3. With the machine still in the standby state, press eject on the REMOTE. It should eject without trying to read the disk.

Good luck. It worked for me.

DVD displys "loading" constantly

First of all if it is still under warranty take it back and exchange it or have them look at it. As far as it not wanting to turn off you can search for a reset button on the back of the unit. Reset it. Or if no reset button just unplug it and plug it back in. See if that helps. As far as being jammed. Unplug the unit. Very carefully take the unit apart. See if anything has been accidentally placed in the unit when a dvd was pushed in at the same time. I have experienced this before cause I have little kids. Things happen. Now there again by taking it apart could void any warranty you may have. Also something in the unit could also shorted a circuit out causing it to not turn off.
