Like Guest. I sent my DR-MH50S to a repairer recommended by JVC and paid about the same amount. When I got it back, it was showing the same symptoms and so took it back again. I am still waiting on the outcome. I will keep you posted!
I do not think there is a reset button on this player.

Just had the 2nd diagnosis for the error - "digital PCB" at a cost of £252 - BONKERS! Have e-mailed JVC to see if they can make the cost of the repair reasonable, got a positive reply they want me to send my proof of purchase, serial no etc. & they'll consider dropping the cost significantly. On top of that just found same model on ebay, ex display £130. baught it, was prepaired to pay upto same for the repair - gunna swap HDD for mine when it arrives, the stuff on there was the main reason i wanted it repaired. Still gunna try to get mine fixed for nowt though through JVC! May as well try for nothing!

If 'Loading' flashes for more than one minute, try a reset by unplugging from its power source for 10 seconds than plug it back in and turn it on.

More likely this recorder needs to be serviced.You should contact JVC this issue usually qualifies for a free service program, which means JVC will flip the bill on repairing it if it is shipped to JVC's Service factory and their techs determine it qualifies.

JVC DR-MH30 keeps flashing ''loading'' after recent power cut

Measure the 5V line on the DVD drive,if to low replace the bad caps in power supply.There is an 22 microfarad elco you can upgarde to 47 microfarad to last longer.
If the 5V line is ok the problem could be the harddisk,this is not traceable without the proper software.

Yes there is a high probability that the 5v power supply has suffered damage. Anyways just check if the drive is ejecting properly without placing any DVD. If it doesn't then its confirmed that the ps is the culprit. try it and let me know..

Not responding after flashing "loading" for 1 minute then get message R-Lk --:-- on display

Hard drive issue or power supply. Power supply prone to bad capacitors (look for leakage/swollen tops)
If hard drive faulty you'll need a new one which is no small task. Disk contains firmware and custom file system and smallest I've got image is 10.7gig
