Says "not connected to camcorder"; how can we just get it to read & "autoplay" simple dvd's we put in?JVC

Probably because you have not selected the appropriate "INPUT" (DVD/VCR, etc) from your remote. It plays the DVD you put in but you cannot watch it on your TV because you have not selected the right A/V input source. Hre is a link to the user's manual.

I've had a DR-MV5S DVD video recorder & video cassette recorder for years to transfer DVD over to VHS tapes. Something has recently happened where I can't record VHS tapes. Can't play VHS tapes on the...

If it won't PLAY VHS tapes it must have a serious mechanical problem (if it even loads) or its heads are glommed up, so it obviously won't record them either. When's the last time you ran a cleaning tape through it?

Solve the load or playback problem and it will probably record.

Time and poor storage conditions are the mortal enemies of tapes. Store the in a 'played

My JVC DR-MV150B plays prerecorded VHS tapes fine.

Try opening the front hatch of the tape by pressing the small, square button on the right or left (short) side of the tape. Check the black tape inside for any marks, dirt, scratches, tears, etc. If the tape is fine then your unit needs to be cleaned with a tape cleaner available at any electronics specialty or retail store. Good luck to you!

My JVC DR-MV7 will play most DVDs and even record, but recently, it stopped being able to finalize. After I get the message saying "finalization has failed," I can't even play the DVD anymore - thus losing...

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?

DVDs recorded on HR720 do not play on any other player or PC!

Hi there,

not sure if this will solve your issue. But in order to be able to see the DVD recorded on the HR720 (or typically any other DVD recorder) you need to "lock" it. This is done in the File Manager Menu. The DVD recorder will ask you twice, whether you want to "lock" the disk. Once you have done that it will format the DVD like a normal DVD-Video, meaning it can be played on any regular DVD player. However, once locked you cannot re-open the DVD.
Hope this helps. Otherwise check in the user manual under "recording a DVD" - it is mentioned also there.

This machine has a lot of problems. One thing that often works is to turn it off and unplug it for a couple of minutes. Then plug it in again. Then it will say "loading" for quite a while. Leave it alone until it turns itself on. Then it should be okay. If the couple of minutes doesn't work, sometimes unplugged overnight (same method) works, but then you have to reset everything.

this happened to mine - could be that it is getting too hot (mine is in a cabinet) - turning the machine off (by unplugging the plug, not putting on standby) and letting it cool down seems to work.

However, the dvd has now stopped working (not related to the above problem) - hence me looking
