Re: JVC DR-MH200SEK complete failure..

A clicking noise when there's a hard drive present usually does not bode well for the end user. This noise is lovingly known as the "click of death" and it's name says it all. I'm wondering if maybe the hard drive has gone and the JVC's error handler does not allow it to progress past POST while there is a hardware error present. My apologies, I know that this isn't a solution, but hopefully this will at least help answer some of your questions as to what's going on....keep in mind that this is ultimately a guess, however, based on what I do know about electronics hardware.

My dvd player wont work it will just say hello when i turn it on but then it will turn off by itself

I have the same problem. I installed this unit and used it for a total of one day before it complely failed. When you tun it on, the display says hello, nothing is shown on the TV, and it turns itself off within 30 seconds. Solution, I am returning this JVC unit and never purchasing another JVC product again. Complete failure after one days use, pitiful!

Power surge has killed my DR-MH200SEK


good day, if you already replaced the fuse and still keeps on blowing it again. you still have a short circuit somewhere within the power supply area or board.try to check if there are any other blown parts or slightly expanded shape part specially for capacitors near the power supply area .

2) If you do have multi tester and have some basic knowledge with component checking try to check the polyswitch protector, this is connected parralel to AC supply right after the fuse before going to voltage rectifier diode.

3) if it doesn't have a polyswitch protector check the polarity of your rectifier diode, maybe 1 of this 4bridged diode is shorted.

It is pretty common problem.
If all of your DVDs are having same problems,
it is most likely either optical sensor is at fault. The other could be the actual loading mechanism problem.
If the dvd tray(drawer) closes all the way in but the DVD disc never completes the loading(reading) procedures, 1) it could be simply dirty or damaged disc. 2) the optical pickup device (eye) is dirty or just went defective. 3) sometimes the drawer tray that houses the DVD did not complete to engage in disc reading position can produce this result.

I would suggest: first check the position of the drawer and condition(s) of your DVD disc itself.
If the pickup device(optical eye) is dirty or defective, that needs to be serviced by a qualified technician. or contact JVC service center. Their information can be found at
