    It's true, these drives are a bit of a cow. We have had 2 of these units, one replaced after attempts to fix it failed 3 times (and months at service). The other unit now has unreadable disc error, but boots up OK!!

As i have posted on the other problem, very similar to this, the problem is power failure in the unit's system like faulty capacitators....which when they fail will not allow the correct amount of electricity into it's main operating "motherboard" of the DVD and or vcr....if not...try to hold down the power button next time it goes off...for a while and see if it turns off again...or un-plug and re-plug, or another alternative is to see what happens when you un-plug it and leave it for about a few days, then plug it back in. With mine there is some flashing, but it goes back to working normaly, functioning perfectly, dvd side works with playback and record, vcr plays and records..etc (until it goes back into its next 'loading' seizure). Gud luck with this one people =) [im refering to my unit for these solutions, so don't blame me if it doesn't work specifically for yours], if you are planing to getting it reparied for somthing more than $100 AUS..then i don;t recomend. beacuse at that price it isnt worth it. You can get brand new units, of better reliance for about $300 AUS nowadays. =)

I agree with you T Scott, for the hassle of getting it fixed if your nat game to tinker with it yourself, it's better to ditch the box and get a whole new one. Even if you get JVC to replace it like we did 2 years ago the warranty only lasts fro the original purchase date. Go figure, surely a new unit should have a new warranty?

99 corolla passenger window wont roll up

Turn the ignition on but don't start the engine. Operate the windows from the master control switch. If none of the windows work, check the main fuse or breaker for the whole power window circuit. If only one of the windows is inoperative, go to Step 3.

  • 2 Check the main circuit relay using a test light. If voltage is coming out of the relay, there is an open or short at the wire feeding power to the other switches. If no voltage is coming out of the relay, use the test light to make sure voltage is reaching the relay. If voltage is reaching the relay, replace it. If there is no voltage reaching the relay, there is an open or short at the wire between the relay and the main fuse.
  • 3 Check the circuit fuse or breaker at the inoperative window. If the fuse or breaker is okay, go to the next step. If you can hear a humming sound as you press the switch but the window does not operate, either the motor is bad or its gearbox may have broken teeth. Go to Step 7.
  • 4 Turn the ignition on but don't start the engine. Using a multimeter, check the master control lockout switch for continuity. If there is no continuity, replace the lockout switch. With some vehicle models, problems at the lockout switch can cause both rear windows to fail.
  • 5 Try the switch at the inoperative window and check for continuity using a voltmeter. If there is no continuity, replace the switch.
  • 6 Check for voltage at the switch using a test light. If voltage is not reaching the switch, there is an open or short between the incoming wire and the fuse or breaker for that circuit power window.
  • 7 Take off the trim panel from the inoperative window. Check for voltage at the motor with a test light while pressing the switch. If there is no voltage, there is a short or open at the wire between the switch and the motor. If the circuit is equipped with a relay, test for voltage reaching and coming out the relay. Make sure the relay is working properly. If voltage is reaching the motor, go to the next step.
  • 8 Detach the window from the regulator and inspect the regulator mechanism by moving the window up and down by hand. Make sure nothing restrains the mechanism. Also, inspect the motor gearbox. Replace any parts as necessary.

    Beep sound, key tone and fish alarm sound, was suddenly changed to very small as hard to hear. The sound menu makes no change. It seems that the sound period is very short. I have once changed the sound...

    Hi Toshio, I have the same unit and I am not aware of a sound period adjustment. The unit most likely needs a hard reset because of a software glitch. To do this hold down the zoom in and zoom out buttons while turning the unit on. Keep holding both zoom buttons until the start up screen is completely loaded. This procedure returns the unit to its factory settings and should solve your issue. Regards Phil.

    Not loading up to main screen

    ok go to youtube and type" PS3 REPAIR/FIX" basicly what you do is put the ps3 on standby (the red light on) and then turn the main power off (the back switch) then hold the I/O button in the front (the on switch you use to put on standby) just hold it until it will go to standby then hold the I/O button again (the standby button) and then keep holding it until you hear one beep, then wait for two quick beeps. Then there should be a menu and select "Restore Defualt Settings". If it dosent work CONTACT SONY!

    the 3 things i would consider would be the interlock,on/off switch or timer, Just because the door clicks it does'nt mean the interlock is'nt faulty there is no test you can do to prove it apart from trying a new one. also the on/off switch can melt remove facia to gain access to the switch it will help if you also loosen the timer, which will also allow you to see if the timer has shorted where the black connector block on the top of the unit goes if there is a track blown you will need to change interlock aswell. GOOD LUCK

    276C Memory Battery

    There is a button cell soldered to the main circuit board that powers the real-time clock while the unit is off or the main battery is removed or flat. After a couple of years this button cell dies and has to be replaced. I've had this problem twice in five years, and each time replacing the button cell fixes the problem.

    Needs a Garmin workshop, or someone who's good with a fine-point soldering iron.
