Re: JVC DVD Recorder DR-M1SLB Spontaneously Shuts Off

Had a similar problem with my JVC, took the lid off and the transformer looks as though it had been overheating with scorch marks under the lid.I would think there is a thermal cut-out so the only solution is to replace the transformer and make sure the cooling fan is working

Does the JVC DR-MV5S DVD recorder/VCR combo unit have an analog tuner or digital tuner, so that you can record one channel while watching a different channel on your TV?

You can read what JVC is telling about the recorder. It is not an digital tuner, but still you can record a DVD and watch another channel or vice versa.

The power shuts off after a few minutes

There could be several factors. Are there any indication or failure lights/codes prior to the unit shutting down? You didn't mention where the unit is located. Does it initially start to read the disc then shut down or is there no activity at all? Please respond with some additional info & we'll go from there.

This machine has a lot of problems. One thing that often works is to turn it off and unplug it for a couple of minutes. Then plug it in again. Then it will say "loading" for quite a while. Leave it alone until it turns itself on. Then it should be okay. If the couple of minutes doesn't work, sometimes unplugged overnight (same method) works, but then you have to reset everything.

Sounds like the laser head carriage slides or screw drive need oil or the screw drive may have dirt in it that will cause uneven movement or possible jamming of the carriage on the slide.

The carriage and drive screw need to move smoothly. The slides can easly be oiled. The screw however can be difficult to clean. Using paper can make it worse due to the paper fibre getting into the screw as well. You could try a lint free material to clean the screw and then oil it, preferably with a non drying oil.
