My DVD recorder is almost 2 yrs old and was working fine until recently when it got stuck on "loading". Is there a way I can fix this problem myself without taking it to a repair shop? If there is, are you able to give step by step instructions on how to fix it ? Thanks

Unplug the machine and pick it up and shake it, this will tell you if something is in there that shouldn't be or that something broke off.
So many things could be wrong that it is probably not worth fixing if it is not a foreign object inside.
I found this solution on one of your old notes (but a different machine). I set up a scheduled record for 11:59 PM to 12:01 AM for the current day, then set up the scheduled record for the next day. The VCR recorded both the initial 2 minute session and the later one which I wanted to record.
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!
I presume that your TV uses Scart to connect to other devices and on your TV remote there will be a button that has either of these things next to it: 1.A box with an arrow pointing into it. 2.A button that says input. 3.A button that says AV. Turn on your DVD recorder and then push the button that i explained until you find the DVD recorder is coming up on your screen
