selfmade hack

1. Remove the top cover. 2. Locate wire jumper B532 o the printed circuit board nearby the front panel, it can be found just underneath the connector linking this board with the one above. 3. Cut bridge B532. 4. Apply power, PW (Password) appears on the display. 5. Enter the code 5963 with the remote controller, PW OK will be displayed. 6. Switch the set off and on ... and it will be zonefree !!!

Important information It seems that JVC received some complaints from the software industry that these players were much too easy to modify and they had to change the design to prevent further 'multi-zoning'! All sets with a serial number starting with 134xxxxx or 144xxxxx will normally need a new PROM to make them a real multizone machine! Don't despair if you have one of the newer types because there's a hidden multizone 'backdoor' ! Yes, the above mentioned modification will still work after you plug in the power cord, at this moment the set will play all zones as long as you don't switch it off with the standby button, once this happens it will be back to zone 2 and you'll need to unplug/plug in the power cord again to get it back to multizone. ATTENTION Opening your player will void the warranty! Modification are at your own risk! No guarantee for function!

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.

Only getting very low sound on front speakers on my jvc th-s51 system

if you are only getting the front speakers, you are hooked up in stereo mode. Are you using red white and yellow cables? Is the source in stereo? Try a digital coax cable.

Try this link:
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.

(Tested and Worked!)

I am trying to program a universal remote for dish network and i can not make any codes listed for the JVC DVD work. The DVD player is a JVC XV-511. Do you know what code I should use?

e-mail or call the makers of the remote, tell them what unit you are trying to use your remote on and they will tell you program your remote..easy as that !

The parental lock comes on on certain dvd movies.(JVC xv-n322s)

Well Girls and Boys that is to stop naughty people accessing media your parents prefer you not to see. Discuss the matter with them and don't try to subvert your parents concern for your mental healt by involving us in your naughtiness. These DVD's have codes applied and parents who paid for them know what sequence to enter on the remote to unlock them, so try asking them if its suitable for you and have THEM do it
