Question about JVC HR-XVC1U DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

Incorrect disc message

When I insert a DVD to play, the TV screen says "reading" for a few moments then it says "incorrect disc." This occurs with eveyr disc. I took the top off the unit and used compressed air to blow out any dust on the lens, and that didn't help. FYI, the DVD player is not used very often.

You might try using rubbing alcohol and a q-tip on the lens to clean it.

DVD Player stops reading disc Error message :


usually this happens when lens cannot read the the disc. Due to few reason 1 Your disk is scratched 2 Your DVD lens is covered with dust 3 You need to replace DVD lens
Try another few CD/DVD to rectify whether there is any problem with dvd you are trying to play
if this error occurs on all the dvd you played then the most likely proble is with your DVD lens either its coverd with dust use Disk cleaner if not you got to replace a new DVD lense as per model

Incorrect disc


Hi,

The first thing i would suggest you to do is a hard reset by unpluging the the player for 30min and then try again.

If this does not solve your problem then please see if the player tries to read the disc.
Load a disc and listen.Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.

If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.


It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track. Please refer to the image below.

If the problem still persists then you will have to get it repaired and thats the only solution..

Goodluck..

DVD will not play,message reads incorrect disc format we were watching DVD when it froze and will not permit any DVD to play now


Try cleaning the optics lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that does not resolve the problem, than one of the following has occurred:

1) The optics assembly is not able to read the disc anymore (replace the optics).

2) The logic board has failed in some way and the information obtained from the disc is being marked as invalid. This option will take more diagnosis to completely resolve.

If option 1 appears to be the case, the unit should stillbe able to read a music CD. CDs require a lower level of laser than DVD.

Keep us posted.

After I insert a dvd disc in the dvd drive, it still asks me to isert a disc in the drive. It seems that it is not able to read the disc. We currently subscribe to netflix. Certain dvd"s whhen inserted...


If it is a hardware fault, a fault in your drive, it occurs on every disk
if it is a disk fault it occurs only when faulty disks are used.
Probably Netflix discs are bad, wrong region code, or scratched, or badly copied
