Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players
Whenever I turn the power on, my dvd recorder just says hello. Nothing else works-remote, buttons on machine, etc. Unit has not even 3 months of use (but was purchased over a year ago-needed a "kid" to set it up.) How can I remedy this? Thanks...
I have a JVC DVD/VCR player. It does the same thing. The only way I've been able to solve this is by unplugging the unit, then when I replug it, I go in, reset the time and then I can turn the unit off or set it to timer. But this happens again and again and I must do the procedure I just described each time it freezes.
Does anyone know of a better way or another more permanent solution?
SOURCE: Unit totally locked up
I called the secondary 800# as the number in the manual has a recording for "if you are calling about the drc8335 call 877-805-0519" how bout it? A separate number just for this unit?
The guy said to unplug the unit for at least 30 MINUTES & that I would have to rescan in all the channels I have spent alot of time scanning in by rotation of the antenna. Geezzz I wish I had returned it to the store before the 90days were up... (price has dropped below $150 was 219 last year?)

You must manually hold in the on/off button on the machine itself (NOT on the remote) for approximately 30 seconds. This will shut the unit off. Then you can restart it.

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.

You have a blown capacitor in your machine. If you are good with a soldering iron, great, you can fix it yourself. Otherwise, find a friend who is good with a soldering iron. Parts should cost you less than $2 for a new capacitor. Replaced the blown capacitor in my machine, and my tape popped out with no fuss once I powered the system back up.
