Question about JVC DR-MV1S DVD Recorder/VCR
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?
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.

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.

Mine says it is a region 4 DVD player, but yours could be different. But referring to mine, i have played DVDs from overseas, e.g USA and KOREA with no problem. Its a fantastic piece of equipment, the JVC DR-MV1S. =)
