Question about JVC XV-N312S DVD Player

1 Answer

Strange behavior on some DVDs

Our JVC XV-N312SJ DVD player will sometimes be unable to play a disc correctly.  When it fails, the display starts "building" zeros on the display, right to left.  When I say "building", I mean that it shows the bottom half of the zero, then the top half.  After a few seconds, it moves to the next digit to the left and does it again.  Once the display if full, it just sits there.  I can only get the disc out by holding the eject bottom for about a minute.

Is the player trash, or is there something I can do about it?  The warranty was up a couple of years ago.

I have a JVC DVD Player (XV-N670B), (XV-N672S). I recently purchased a BluRay DVD and after inserting the DVD into the player, "Disc Error" appears. Would you tell me if my player can...

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.

Either the disc or the player likely need a good cleaning. Clean the disc with a soft cloth, clean the player with a good cleaner disc.

Disc error message when load DVD

Are you loading to play or to record?
Commercial DVDs should play.
DVDs for recording may not be recognized by your drive. First make sure that the disc is blank. You must insert a blank disc of the proper format: DVD-R or RW, DVD+R or RW. Even with the proper format, some brands may not behave the same way as other brands.

All regions are not equal, and different DVD players can and will act differently when an improper DVD is loaded....accordianman

JVC XV-THA5R multi-region DVD player - fault recognising a disc in and playing

I too have this same problem on my current DVD player, AND strangely enough I had the same problem on my previous player.
Previous player was made multi region and was a Sony S660 (I think that was the model number).
My current DVD player is a Denon and was £550! It is also made multi region and has the same problems! I don't get it!
