Question about JVC DR-MV1S DVD Recorder/VCR

4 Answers

JVC DR-MV1S won't turn on.

I've had this for a couple of years and it has worked fine. The other day I went to play a DVD and noticed the display lights were out. When I hit the power button the lights come on for a split second and then go off. I have a bunch of DVD's that I haven't finalized and JVC said I am out of luck unless I can get it fixed or find another one. Any idea what the problem might be?

    JVC DR-MV1SEK won't turn on

  • Sorebones Feb 01, 2009

    JVC DR-MV1SEK Serial No 139B0615 DVD Video Recorder and Video Cassette Recorder I bought this item about two years ago when it seemed to work ok. Now It switches on for about 20 seconds and the message is loading. The fan then stops and within a few seconds it switches off again. I cannot get the Video cassette out of the unit. I switch it off and repeat the process with the same results.



    Any help would be grateful. Thanks

I have the sae machine and have been advised that it is a component fault on the power board. I am at the moment trying to get hold of the crcuit diagram to see if I can trace the faulty component I think it may be a faulty capcitor will keep you in touch if I get a diagram.

Not sure if this is the same problem but mine would work fine for about 5 minutes then go completely dead, only switching off at the mains would restore power, I seem to have solved this by increasing the size of the heat sink on the power board, i just drilled a hole on the top and added an extra piece of metal, in this case i used the heat sink off an old sinclair spectrum. So far I have had it running for a few hours without it failing.

The problem is power failure in the untit's system like faulty capacitators....which when they fail will not allow the correct amount of electricity into it's main operating "motherboard" of the dvd and or vcr....if not...try to hold down the power button next time it goes off...for a while and see if it turns off again...and see what happens.

    Continuing...with this ridiculous case...i have figured out that sometimes, this specific appliance is it doesn't always go into and continues forever, its 'loading' seizure. As i have seen from my own one, that after a period of it not being connected to an electrical socket, or used; when i plug it back in, it turns on...and yes there are some 'loading' flashes(which are supposed to happen because JVC designed it to do that so some preset settings can be made, but only for about 1 minuite), but after about 1-2 minutes of its flashing...the unit stops flashing, its blue lights turn off and its goes into standby mode, and you can turn it back on..and use it normally as you would have before it went all faulty. But, in some cases, (whilst playing dvds, having it in standby mode) after going through these steps, somehow...it goes back to its flashing and somehow goes back to standby mode (and can be used normaly again)..hmm...and even sometimes...is un operatable from that random flashing moment onwards, oh well.

    So, finally i recomend if you do want to continue to use this, u can try the cheap way, of turning it off and leaving it to cool down...for a fair period, or the alternative of that is to get it repaired (if its repairs are more than $75-100 dollars AUS then i don't recomend you get it done because, nowadays you can get better quality and reliable vcr recorder/dvd recorder combos of commonly known brands such as PANASONIC and SONY for about $300 AUS at electrical centres such as The Good Guys, DICKSMITH Powerhouse, JB-HIFI..etc). Sorry if i made this a bit long. =)

ok, this same problem happened to many other jvc dr-xxxx s, i think the only answer to this would be to get it serviced or just chuck it out. the cause for the annoying "loading" blinking light is a blown out capacitator, inside the machine itself i recomend u to not try to fix it d.i.y.

Well, My JVC DR MV1s is reading and records my DVD-R but it stop reading and...


The most common mechanical problems that can prevent a dvd player from playing or reading the discs are the following:

1. The spindle motor not functioning properly (this is by far the most common, if the spindle motor is not spinning the discs then the optical lens can not read them). For the most part it is an cheap part to replace averaging around 25-35 dollars if you can replace it yourself. If you do not know how and have to take it to a repair shop expect to pay 50-75 dollars in labor depending on the area you live in. The best thing is to do some comparison shopping and call the different repair shops and get estimates. The key is to listen closely when you insert the disk into the player, you should be able to hear it spin up. If you hear nothing then that is most likely the problem.

2. The tray could be out of alignment. This is another easy and cheap fix if you have the proper tools. This could happen if you drop or pull/push to hard on the tray (which you should not really do anyway, but always use the open and close button). This is an example picture of the drive assembly with the tray open.

3. The small gears are plastic and often break, this will cause the players other parts to not move and function properly. They are difficult to reach, but inexpensive to replace. It is always recommended that you always order any part from the manufacturer of the device. A visual inspection is usually required to determine if the small teeth have been broken, which requires for the most part taking out the carriage assembly.

4. The small belt drives either break or come off. Again, this will cause the other mechanical parts not to function. They are difficult to put back on as well, so you may need an extra pair of hands if you have not done this before. On average you will usually have 2-3 of them inside your player.

5. The Optical reader has malfunctioned. This is the most expensive thing to replace, so you might consider purchasing another player depending on how much you want to spend and the original cost of the device, unless you can find a great deal on the part you need. You can check to see if the laser is firing with a visual inspection (DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY INTO THE LASER) put in a disc with the case off and you should see the glow of the laser hitting the disc. You can also see the spindle/spindle motor.

Picture of the optical reading assembly dismantled:

6. The tray also has a drive motor which can fail and cause the cd tray not to open and it also has a track that it rides on (located in the drive assembly). Check these two components if you are having problems with your tray not opening and closing properly or stops working completely. Sometimes, the tray will open and then immediately close on it's own. This is usually caused by the track being dirty or some type of debris is lodged in the track. Cleaning the inside of the player with a can of compressed air will help remove dust and dirt. Blowing out the inside of the device once a month is a good preventative maintenance measure.

CAUTION: When working with any electrical device, you should always ensure safety first. Make sure that the device is turned off and unplugged from any power source. This does not completely prevent electrical shocks because Capacitors will hold an electrical charge for some time even if the device is turned off and unplugged.
The following are example pictures of what Capacitors look like:

Watch tv properly with JVC DVD off


Some philips tv's have a built in aerial amplifier, perhaps if you bought a digital aerial booster it will improve the picture quality.

Some blank DVD+R discs will not read on my DVD player


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!!
