The unit is not waiting for a reset or a command. The unit is in standby because an internal fault had been detected, and the controller circuit started in protect mode.

Protect mode is a special diagnostic mode that starts when a fault is detected.

When in protection mode the unit is prevented from starting by protection circuit, so to prevent further damage. the PSU will be forced to standby, and the unit does not wake up until the fault is fixed.

Check all wiring and connectors, a contact in video connection cable can start protect mode.

Try unplugging power cable for one hour or so. then connect cable back and see if you get rid of protect state. Sometimes accumulation of electrostatic charges inside PSU capacitors can kick in protect mode. In that case unplugging the unit from main for some times can get rid of electrostatic charges, and reset circuits by draining power completely.
If that was the problem, unit will start normally when plugging back power cable.

If you do all the above and still have the unit in forced standby, then there is an internal fault.

In that case the unit must be disassembled and tested to find the fault.

If that is the case I suggest contacting the manufacturer at the number listed on the owners manual, or asking a quote on repair to a local technician.
Better ringing the number in the manual first.

You almost certainly have problems with the power supply board which fails fairly often in these machines. They are available for around 80 euros, trouble is that having bought one it is not uncommon to plug it in only to find you have another problem. Your best bet is to take it to a big JVC service centre where they will have the spares to try substitute components without you having to buy them first!

I also have a faulty unit with discs that hadn't yet been finalised. You can access the discs via your PC. I used a program called IsoBuster by Smart Projects. There is a free demo which you can download. Just google it.

As for the faulty power supply, just scrap the unit and DON'T buy JVC again. Eventually, they will have to listen to the economies of scale.........

well, i sympathize with your problem- it may be a bit expensive, but there are 'data recovery' services available on-line. if the data on the hd is still intact, then they can either 'burn' it to dvds, or transfer it to an external, usb hd. then, if your pc has a dvd burner, you can archive the content to dvds! store them in hard case holders-make copies and store them in a safe place! fire-resistant safe, safe deposit box, with a trusted relative or friend, in case the originals become damaged. also, use the external to archive any future pictures, or videos- then back them up on dvds! would suggest 500GB-1TB usb 2.0 external,if your pc can support it! $85-150. cheap!
might send the external along with the 180MB to whatever service you decide to go with, that will save some $$, in the long run. (or it should- research what the recovery services offer!).
good luck!

You must finalize the DVD after recording it. If you post the model of the JVC device, I may be able to find out how to do this for you.

This machine has a lot of problems. One thing that often works is to turn it off and unplug it for a couple of minutes. Then plug it in again. Then it will say "loading" for quite a while. Leave it alone until it turns itself on. Then it should be okay. If the couple of minutes doesn't work, sometimes unplugged overnight (same method) works, but then you have to reset everything.

In what state is the unit? Is everything else functioning asides from what you posted?

JVC DR-MX1S DVD... | Answered on Feb 06, 2008

It's likely to be an incompatible signal. You have PAL (UK) and NTSC (Belgium), the DVDR/VCR combo may not be compatible with PAL causing it to seem like it's not receiving any signal, when in fact it is - but not in a recognisable format. You may try and get an NTSC to PAL signal converter like this: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NEW-TV-AV-Video-System-NTSC-To-PAL-Converter-Converor_W0QQitemZ270163920912QQihZ017QQcategoryZ32837QQtcZphotoQQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem That'll solve your problem.

Hi, you can try firmware update online or by usb if it isn't in the last version yet.
The other solution is replace the main board (motherboard)
