    How odd mine is now 2 & half years old & I had the loud noise then it turned off & now will not turn on again just the "LOADING" flashing. It has happened before but only for 5 minutes max. I had been deleting a load of files on the hard drive. I'm thinking it is Defragmenting all the files just as a PC HDD does, but the maual gives no indication of this. I've tried leaving it off for 8 hours then on for 20 then off & on several times. Help!

    system is in a loading mode and will not stop

    I bought t the DRM10S recorder that has many people frustrated with malfunctions such as "loading" flashing at the most in appropriate times, System needs to be reset as discribed in the owner's manual by unplugging unit and holding the power button in as well as the stop button for 5 seconds, (this still does not correct my problem ), system freezes after "loading" stops and will not respond to anything pushed, and then when the few times that the recorder did "work" the disk couldn't be played on many differant players! I have sent this back to the factory 3 times (not an exageration) and still this doesn't work. I have had to pay the shipping in costs every time. I wrote to them again and they still will not take responsibility for making defective machines. They want me to send it to them again believe it or not and they will not pay shipping again.
    Here is my latest email to them and their response:   Hi Robert,
    I definitely have been through all the steps with the owners manual as well as technical support. That is the reason why this unit has been sent back to the factory for "repair" three times. I should not be responsible for having to pay shipping costs again for the forth time since this is a reoccurring problem. Please send me a shipping label for the New Jersey repair center or a unit that works. I don't care if it is refurbished one we just want to be treated fairly with this problem. The unit goes to "loading" constantly then it freezes after it loads and doesn't respond.
    Thank you for contacting JVC Customer Care. I am Robert, your email care specialist. We value you as a JVC customer and appreciate the opportunity to be of assistance.

    I am sorry for this malfunction.

    Since the procedure did not work, you will need to send your unit to our factory service center for evaluation. If the problem can be fixed by an upgrade, then the Factory will perform the upgrade and return it to you free of charge. However, if the unit needs other parts not related to the upgrade, you will receive a repair estimate. Since the unit was repaired more than the allotted time a shipping label cannot be provided at this time nor can the unit be replaced.

    This is serious neglect and a company who will not take responsibility for their product. Stay away from JVC they do not care about their customers!Write me if you wish with your suggestions:

I went to the JVC website
and filled out the form.
I received an email as below:
I understand that your unit may be experiencing a loading error. In effort to troubleshoot this error yourself, please try the following steps.

1. Reset the unit by holding the power and stop buttons at the same time. The unit will power off and start loading again.
2. Unplug the unit for more than 15 minutes and plug it back in.

If the unit fails to function properly after this reset procedure you will need to ship your unit to our factory service center for evaluation. Your unit may qualify for a free update. This will be determined by the factory service center upon arrival. If it is determined by our factory that it is indeed part of the loading update, we will update the recorder and return it to you in a timely manner. However, if the factory determines this to be an unrelated issue, you will receive an estimate regarding the charges to repair the recorder. Please pack you unit carefully and include a note describing the problem and send it in to our Factory Service Center. Click here to find the closest one to you.

It might be worth a try to see if they may consider repairing it with the free update.

It is pretty common problem.
If all of your DVDs are having same problems,
it is most likely either optical sensor is at fault. The other could be the actual loading mechanism problem.
If the dvd tray(drawer) closes all the way in but the DVD disc never completes the loading(reading) procedures, 1) it could be simply dirty or damaged disc. 2) the optical pickup device (eye) is dirty or just went defective. 3) sometimes the drawer tray that houses the DVD did not complete to engage in disc reading position can produce this result.

I would suggest: first check the position of the drawer and condition(s) of your DVD disc itself.
If the pickup device(optical eye) is dirty or defective, that needs to be serviced by a qualified technician. or contact JVC service center. Their information can be found at

I have an RCA DVD/VHS combo with TVG. The DVD

This is a work-around rather than a solution. We put an audio CD in the tray and after closing the tray the unit begins to play the music. After waiting a few seconds we open the tray and quickly substitute a DVD and it loads OK. We had also tried cleaning the player to no avail. The CD approach is a pain but it does allow us to play DVDs. Jim

Cant get cd to work keeps saying loading goes no

Since the details of your problem description is sparse, I presume you are trying to load a DVD - not a CD - to watch on your TV. If in fact you ARE trying to watch a CD on your TV - won't work! A CD can be viewed on your computer, but not the TV. They are not interchangeable.

If however you are trying to load a DVD, the disk may me dirty or damaged. Check that the back of the DVD is free from finger prints, marks, or deep scratches. If it is, you may be having some issues with your DVD player. I sometimes have a similar problem that can be resolved only by opening and closing the drawer of the player several times.

Dvd keeps saying loading but won't play

Sounds very much like you have a either a dirty laser, or a laser unit failure. Put a cleaning disc through the machine, and see if it improves. If not, then you need to either have a new laser fitted, or a new machine.

Player won't load any discs

I don't have a solution at this time. I have the same DVD player and mine stopped working this past weekend. It is doing the same thing as yours. I opened the case and loaded a disc and watched the mechanism. The disc won't spin. if you tap the disc it will start spinning and load and start playing. I thought I had fully fixed it. It will load most times but now the video and audio stutters as if the discs is spinning at varying rates.

Besides bounching this off a concrete wall for some satisfaction, try unplugging it for a couple of hours at least four hours and then plug it back in. Wait for it to stop loading and you may be able to watch one movie, two if your lucky before it starts flashing again. I've even sent mine to JVC for repair and got a year out of it but it's flashing again. This JVC item is the biggest piece of junk out there, if you read up on it it's had nothing but problems. Save yourself a lot of headaches and buy a new one and chock it up to experience.
