    sometimes the internal software in mine gets confussed by an incompatible DVD. If the picture locks up or something wierd like that, I unplug the machine for a couple minutes, then when it is plugged back in & is reading the disk I am usually able to eject it, Sometimes I have had to leave it unplugged over night to drain the power in the memory before I can eject. Mine is very easily confussed & I have had to do this a number of times.. If a DVD won't read & I unplug it over night it will sometimes read the same DVD when the machine is plugged in again. It is very frustrating. Also I have had my machine a number of years & the only brand of DVD that I have found that works well is Staples DVD+ RW , Not Staples DVD+R though, almost every other brand I have tried either won't read at all, stops recording in the middle or the picture locks up durring play back

Hello,
the disc tray is operated by a mechanism inside the player, the problem would be that it is old and weak and cannot perform its functions anymore.

all you have to do is open the dvd player, gently unscrew the mechanism and replace it with a similar mechanism.

goodluck.

Connecting JVC television set model AV29LX2 / JVC home theatre system/satellite decoder / Sony DVD recorder


You need to buy a splitter in order to put one to the DVD recorder and one to the tv from the decoder. You should be able to get one at the Local Radio Shack or other electronics store.

If you need help locating a store, please let me know

Otherwise Thank you for using Fixya and Have a Good Day!

and Good Luck...

DVD player will not play Disney made movies


I don't know what BOLT is, as I fixed my last DVD player 6 years ago at Sony. I think the Disney Format is Newer than your DVD player can read.

I remember Sony had a $5000.00 when new DVD player that was the first generation of DVD's. We would get them in for repair and the guy would say "My Radio Shack $99.00 plays all my DVD's but this $5K FIVE YEAR OLD unit won't play them....

There was NO fix for the problem. The New DVD's were beyond the capability of the 5 year old unit.

SO.. Is the Disney DVD a Blue Ray Disk? Or a new format that your older DVD can't read?

Incompatible disk message


You need to read page 8 of the JVC CU-VD20 DVD Burner instruction manual:
Recommended DVD-R Vendor - JVC, TDK, Verbatim, SONY
Writing Speed for DVD-R is 8X maximum, this is the real issue as I first bought 16X TDKs and they did not work, so now I need to buy 8X.
That's a bummer as most stores only supply 16X now.
