I learned too late to NOT try and do anything fast with this or any such machine. Wait very patiently for the results of the button you just pushed. I'm suffering for my impatience with the same unit. However, you can try this. Mine says it cannot read the DVD-- whether store-bought or one I made. I have gotten it to play by hard-starting the player. Press and hold the On-Off button on the unit for at least 20 seconds. Unplug the unit-- I read for 5 seconds, but do so for about 30. It might not play after the first try, but it did eventually. I'm searching right now for a more advanced re-set-- try to get it back to real factory-- right out of the box. Mine won't format for VR mode, let alone the playing problems I have. Hope this helps.

I'm assuming you bought the DVD recorder in Asia as well. US DVDs are region 1 and won't play on a player/recorder from another region without alteration. (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dvd_regions for a description of DVD regions). There's nothing as simple as a switch unfortunately.
You may be able to find a way of altering your recorder to play all regions (region-free) but you need to be careful when doing this. Here is one person's story of this going wrong with the same model JVC.
A safer alternative may be to buy another recorder in the USA.
Time to look inside the dvd player. try readjusting the variable trimmer under the laser lens of the dvd player assembly. It is usually located under the lens assembly. try to adjust the lens at every 1 degree angle up to +/-5deg. sometimes it can be done. if not. time to change for new lens. damage lens is caused by using pirated DVDs or bad disc as the lens is trying to read the data on the cd.
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.
My JVC DR-MV7 will not accept any disc for playback. I insert a movie disc and it consistently rejects them. After about 15 to 20 attempts, sometimes it will stay and begin reading the disc. It also sounds like some internal components are encountering some resistance (moving parts inside?). Any ideas?
