    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?

I can't change the recorder from dvd to vcr

DVD recorders sometimes suffer a malfuction and locks you out. Think of it like a computer and press the reset button. This might be a combination of controls. Or one for a short period of time. Consult the user guide for more information. If in doubt switch the device off at the mains!

Switch machine on and using the remote control only:
1. Press 'open/close' button (the draw should be left open).
2. Press the 'clear' button.
3. Press '1'.
4. Press '3'.
5. Press '6'.
6 Press '9'.
7. Press '0' (zero for multi-region).
8. Press 'open/close' button.


1. switch on dvd with remote (leave drawer closed)
2. Press: setup
3. press: 7 (note nothing will happen)
4. press: pause/setup button (again nothing will happen)
5. press: previous/I<< button (nothing will happen)

Good morning, I have a sansui DV-X2300 dvd player. The problem is that it auto opens and closes by itself. I mean that when i press the middle button on the player (that close/opens the player, i...

You are having a loading tray sensor problem. It is a small leaf switch on the under side of the loading tray. It must be having a contact problem. How it works is when you close the tray at the end of the tray's travel this switch closes and shorts sending a signal to the microprocessor to shut down the loading motor, same happens when you press eject. Sounds simple but is little difficult to access for a first timer. One you get to it all you need is some switch cleaning spray ( even WD40 will work wonders ).
Take professional help it will just take 10 minutes and will cost you only labor charges. You can mess up the timing if you get it wrong and the loading tray may not work properly.

I have an RCA vcr/dvd-r unit that will not turn on at all. Overnight, It completely has died. Fuse checks ok. Nothing on the front panel lights up, and nothing comes on. Help

I find the main filter capacitor sometimes becomes defective, "may or not show bulge at the top" next the power transistor shorts loading down the power supply. To bring a technician in will not be cost effective in a lot of cases because of the expense of parts and labor.

Same problem here. Nothing seems to work... Pressing any key makes no difference. Disconnected the power - nothing.
