I insert any kind of DVD, which all play fine in my JVC unit. The RCA takes about 30-45 seconds reading the disc, then gives me a "disc error" message. It is a reconditioned unit, but the VHS side works perfectly. Am I missing something in the set up?(I checked to make sure that parental controls are off). What else?

Re: Plays no DVD's of any kind or format
The disc may not be spinning when inserted into the player.
when you insert a disc, something holds it from the top and bottom and starts to spin it. If the upper and/or lower grips can no longer grip the disc strongly, the disc will not rotate or rotate very slowly or not in sync with the laser reading it.
to test this, put some double sided tape on the outer circumference of the middle hole of the dvd, don't go too close to the area where the data area on the dvd begins. do the bottom first.
if this works then you have to find a clever way of placing something on the grips so they can hold the discs stronger.
For my dvd player, i took it apart, cut a rubber sheet into a ring shape and glued it to the lower grip. Haven't had any problems so far.

Hello The laser pickup unit of your DVD player may either be faulty or dusty. Just put in a cleaning disc into it and play it for at least three times, and check. If it does not help you, the laser pickup unit of your device should be replaced with same type and number. Just check the loading belt too. OK.
Check your formatting on the DVD recorder, you need to finalize the disk to be playable on "any" player. That should solve the issue. Your JVC is looking for specific code as it reads the disc, when it's missing or not understood by your JVC it will either stop play or skip over it's interperated missing info. Hope this helps
If your xbox box it's new I would take it back and get another one, becase you do probable have problems with your dvd drive and it will keep scratching the games. the laser on the drive doesn't work as hard when playing a music cd than when it plays a game or a dvd.
If you don't want to take it back, then play a couple dvds and if it reads then fine then you could try again. it shiudn't take more than ten second to read a game so if its taking longer just get it out.
The JVC DR-MV1S DVD Recorder / VCR Combo does not suppport DVD+R, only DVD-R, -RW etc.
At least mine only supports these formats, as when I first bought mine, I got some blank DVD's they were DVD+R.
I recorded a movie onto one on my PC, then tried playing it in the JVC unit... no go!
Instruction manual (available for D/load online) proved to me that I could not play +R disks!!
In response to your jvc-a75r DVD player, sometimes the solution might be less complex than it may appear. Had the same problem with my Samsung s321,the machine refused to read DVD's but would play CD's no problem. Simply opened up the cover(usually)4-6 small screws, and found my dog's hair inside of the player covering the laser eye.Electrostatic ionization
attracts dust,etc. into the player remarkably well sometimes. Carefully used a cotton swap to remove debri. PLayerworked fine afterwards
