Question about JVC XV-M567 DVD Player
When connected to the TV, the screen says "Now reading" and then stops (the same when no DVD is in the tray). I took it apart (because I like that sort of thing), and I found this information:
The DVD never spins. The trays (3 of them) will load the player, and the read head will move back an forth for placement, but the motor that drives the DVD (to spin it) never turns. I know very little about these types of motors, so I'm not sure what to do next. I'd really like to hear suggestions on this.
By the way, I spun the DVD by hand for awhile. I know I couldn't get the right speed, but I noticed that the "READING" message on the TV stayed as long as I spun the disk, so I'm convinced that the *only* problem is that motor or the power to it. I checked for cable problems and saw none.

I have this same problem as Ketterling, but not as critical. After seeing the "No Disc" error I took unit apart. I could see the unit try to spin (sometimes), but would stop and get the error. I was fortunate that I could actually get it to work with a little help to the spindle assy (calibrated index finger-right hand). I could get it to work for a whole dvd, but it wasn't consistent. The problem returned and needed my assistance. I too have read this is a common problem for this model of DVD player (JVC XV M5658K and similiar models). I am looking for one of these motors (RF-300S-12350), but haven't found a solid supplier yet. Anyone actually buy and get one delivered to them?

I hate to be the bearer of potentially bad news, but the problem is not likely the motor. The player attempts to detect a disc present, once that has been completed, the disc will be spun. Since you have the unit open, try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Next try a music CD. If the CD will play but the DVD will not, the optics have failed and need to be replaced.
Keep us posted.
