Question about JVC XV-S500 DVD Player

2 Answers

Power Problems I'm having problems with my JVC XV-500. Right now when I power the unit up, it briefly displays "HELLO" then shuts off. Is there a factory reset for this model or is ther a solution to fixing it? I've taken it apart thinking that there was something jam the tray and inspected all cables. Please help..don't want to have to buy another DVD player Thanks Dion

JVC XV-S300 and XV-S500 Region Code Change

Try changing the region setting to region free.

1. Make sure there is no Disc in the tray.

2. Shut off the unit and unplug it from the AC outlet.

3. Press and Hold the "Play" and "Open/Close" keys,
simultaneously on the player and not the remote control.

4. While holding these keys, plug the AC cord back into the outlet. (TEST and CPU ver# will appear on the display)

5. Release the "Play" and "Open/Close" keys.

6. Press DVD Menu twice on the remote.

7. When the display reads s000 5858 use the up and down buttons to change the 000 to 02E.

8. Using the Left and Right arrow buttons, change the last four digits until they read 0000 for Region Free, 0101 for Region 1, 0202 for Region 2 or 0404 for Region 4.

9. Press Enter on the player.

10. Press Standby and wait 5 seconds.

11. Press Standby again. Your player is now set to the region you requested. If you find some titles do not play on the region 0 setting, you may have to hard select the appropriate region.

Appears no power in unit. no lights or display. verified power into connector plugged onto primary board. xv-n212 jvc dvd acually loaded dvd disc then power ceased. again 120v onto primary board.

Sounds like faulty DC regulation in the power supply - due to numerous faulty electrolytic capacitors and/or IC regulators.

Check ALL the caps, and replace ALL of them as required. (You can easily do a visual inspection of the caps - some may have bulged, split their vents (in their tops) or leaked.) Electrolytics tend to have a short life, and, as these are inexpensive, you can adopt the blanket approach and replace all of them in the PSU circuit. They are available in every electronics shop - including Radio Shack. If this does NOT fix the 'dying power' issue, the unit may have to be submitted to a repair centre for a quote on further repair, and parts if necessary. At least with a quote you can make a decision afterwards as to whether it is worthwhile fixing or not. Up to you.
