Question about JVC DR-MH30S DVD Recorder
Hi, I appear to be having similar problems to other owners of JVC recorders in that it has got very picky on what it will play. It records to hard drive and disc OK and will reply both but should I try to play a pre-recorded dics chances are it will endlessly read and nothing else. I've stripped the cover off and removed the dvd drive unit to inspect and clean the lens. I've also checked the capacitors etc. for swelling and leakage and all look good. Having done all this the problem remains. I'm thinking that the dvd drive unit may be faulty and need your advice. the drive unit fitted is a GDA-4120B Is there an alternative drive unit I can fit without too much trouble?
PS I live in the UK so the system is PAL
I also tried a Sony DRU-842A and it works perfectly on the JVC DR-MV1SDR as a replacement of the GDA-4120B.

To others with the same problem as i "Had"!!!
the problem was solved by once again strippng the dvd drive down and cleaning the lens. This time using more pressure than before. It would seem that the light clean I gave it before did not fully remove the dirt/grease film that had accumulated on the lens. By adding more pressure to the cleaner soaked cotton bud this did the trick.
After cleaning make sure no fluff remains. This can happen when using a cotton bud as I did.
