Darn blue loading light won't stop

Hi there,
I have a JVC Dr M10 dvd recorder that I used to love until the blue loading light got stuck. I got it unstuck a couple of times, however when it was in the middle of recording it locked up on loading again. Any ideas Techman?
Thanks

    I'm had it. While I appreciate the fact that JVC is wiling to repair this defective product, I'm tired of having my viewing interrupted every few months. I've already had to send the machine back twice and it's just no longer worth the inconvenience. Hey JVC - if you're listening - make good and give me a new Blue Ray. On second thought - forget it!

The problem with these units is the filter capacitors in the power supply. They should be removed and replaced with 25 v.dc capacitors...total cost for the capacitors £5. If you don't fancy doing the repair your self, perhaps you know of a good friend who can use a soldering iron!

The capacitors are 2200 micro farads radial mounting, 680 and 1200, all should be at least 25v dc working for a reliable recorder. The existing ones are prone to "leaking" and should never have been used...shame on you JVC!

JVC does indeed have a free "Fix" for this problem . The Georgia repair facility received mine at 10 am on the 13th of August , was shipped on the 15th and it just arrived today at 2:30 pm , the 19th of August . Invoice says some 12 items were replaced including 7 caps and a resistor . Return shipping was pre-paid .

Contact JVC @ 800-252-5722, the "loading" is a known bug and they will fix this defect at n/c even if it's out of warranty period.

Jvc dvd vhs burner dr-mv1s and dr-m10 loading continues to flash


if you have a jvc dvd vhs burner dr-mv1s or the dr-m10 with the loading that continues to flash with no control of the unit at all there is the first step to take witch is a master or hard reset. done by holding the stop and power buttons at the same time for 10 or more seconds till it powers of then on again.

if this does not work or has no reaction to the unit at all them repairs will have to be made.

i have scowered the internet for fixes for this issue and have found a few interesting things but nothing concrete at all. but lead me in the correct area of the issue. although jvc was fixing these for free at one time they are no longer servicing them under their "free fix"

the problem with the unit is the power supply and although i found that easily on the web. i could not find what the exact problem was untill i did my own diagnostic testing and found that capasitor c5207 on the power supply board was bad and buldging/leaking. it is a 1500uf 6.5v @85 degrees witch i used a 105degree due to the temp and relating the issue with a bad design flaw. so use the higher temp rating one to insure long lasting use.

don't forget to preform the master/hard reset previously mentioned above and you will be back up and running in no time.

good luck......

Cooling fan stays on all night


You probably have set up one scart as being connected to 'sat' or sat controlled
(I cannot remember the exact setting)
If you do so, the recorder is controlled by the satreceiver, and is 'on' all the time.

Good luck (my DR M10 broke down yesterday - The drive does not recognise dvd-ram disks anymore :( )

Recording digital channels


Connect your set top box to Scart L2 (the Right hand one).
Select Prog 1. Then Channel down until you get to L2.
This should work.
