Question about Pioneer Televison & Video
Do you mean you had a lightning strike? Okay, well first check power to the device. If it doesn't have power it won't turn on. Secondly check to make sure there wasn't any surge damage. Smell the tray bay, the back end around the cord, or near any vents. If there is surge damage you'll smell a very strong metallic smell reminiscent of a copper penny.
If you have a melmeter or volt meter you can test outputs for correct electrical output while the device is turned on. If can't turn on you can at least read the power supply output if you open the device. Though doing so will void any warranty and you are at risk of electric shock, so be careful when doing this and only if you feel comfortable doing this. Look for the power ribbon cable or plug leading to the main board. There should be a list on the board next to the plug pins telling you what voltage should be output from the power supply.
If it doesn't turn on and the power supply is working fine (that is it's voltage output is correct) you have a bad board damaged by the lightning strike. Toss the machine and buy a new one as the cost to replace the mainboard will probably be near to the cost of a brand new device that'd be pointless to replace.
If the power supply is bad, go online and look up the model number which should be printed on the power supply. These are usually cheap to replace (20-50 bucks).
Ultimately, however, you must remember to keep electronics on a sure protector or power strip with surge protection.

SOURCE: Region 1 only DVD player
First of all, stop buying this trash. When people stop rewarding companies for creating restricted garbage DRM will die. Our XV-S300 was stolen recently, but this works for the XV-S500, and maybe the 300 as well:
TO MAKE THIS DRIVE REGION FREE:
1. Remove the disc
2. Close the door
3. Press 0 then ENTER on the remote control (RM-SXV008J)
(The player will display the PREVIOUS region setting
then will set itself to what you told it.)
(With the player OFF press 0 then ENTER on the remote)
From the website:
With the player off, just enter the region number you want and hit
After a few seconds, you're ready to go.

It is not a permanent hack, you will have to to it over for every movie you put in.
1. When "REGION CODE ERROR" shows on screen after you've input your wrong-region DVD you push "ON SCREEN".
2. When the DVD-menu is showing push "ON SCREEN" again and another DVD-menu will appear.
3. Move the arrow over to the clock and press enter. The menu asks for "TIME" and you write 0:00:00 and push enter.
4. You will now see the menu for the movie. Remove the DVD-menu by pushing "ON SCREEN" once. You can now watch the movie.
Don't think theres a pernament one for this player yet but i'll try and post it on here if i ever find one. Sorry.

SOURCE: I have a JVC DVD
Sorry to say, no; this is a model limitation not a fault as such. XV-N670B is a DVD player, and the playable formats are:
DVD-Video, DVD-RW/-R, +RW/+R, CD, CD-R/RW, SVCD/VCD, WMA/MP3/JPEG, DivX. No Blu-ray support.
The JVC XV-BP11 and XV-BP1 do play Blu-Ray discs, as they are specifically Blu-Ray players (according to the JVC website).
I have heard of quite a few Blu-Ray players allowing DVD playback. The XV-BP1 supports the following playable media: BD-R/RE (Blu-Ray), DVD-Video/-R/-RW, R/ RW, CD, USB (again, this is from the same JVC website). You would need to purchase this or a similar Blu-Ray player to enjoy the benefits it has to offer (but it's up to you if you want one of those later on).
DVDs are still good, the 'disc error' message on your DVD player is normal due to the wrong media format inserted. The bonus here is it didn't cost you anything to ask, and you don't need a workshop quote on repairs.
This is the best free advice I can offer.
