Re: jvc vcr HR J443U
Does it have any lights at all coming on? If not then the power
supply has failed. You can try and replace the internal fuse, but
that rarely is the cause of the problem (unless you got a power
transient just enough to pop the fuse but nothing else). More
likely, the power supply is dead and not worth replacing unless it is a
high end model. If you take a chance and replace the P/S,
sometimes the circuitry (microprocessor brain) is toast as well which
is not repairable.

You mean a tape is stuck inside? Disconnect power and open up the cover. If the tape is stuck around the posts, free it and by manually turning the loading motor you can slowly get the mechanism to eject the tape.
Same problem with my HR-3911U after a power spike. Cracked open the box and as I suspected the fuse had blown. Removed fuse, plugged in and tested across connectors, 115v ac good reading. Replaced fuse (1.25a 250v) plugged in and nothing. The deck electronics had fried. Keeping for spare parts such as head and transport mech.
Time to get a new one and a better surge protector. My UPS logs show a 1200+v spike the day it died. We had storms all around us and thunder in the distance, but nothing close by and no rain, but the spike still made it to our inadequate surge protector.
I've read a lot of forums where other JVC owners have experienced the same problem. It appears to be inherent to these JVC Vcrs.
