JVC DR-MH30S DVD... | Answered on Nov 16, 2014


I am sorry to hear regarding the trouble.

What does the label show for a manufacturing date?

If your unit is at least 5 years old, then you are one of the lucky owners whose machine did not fail in the first 12 or 18 months. The problem has been so widespread that at one time JVC was repairing these out of warranty. To my knowledge they are no longer doing that. Most of the units that were shipped back to JVC had the power supplies replaced while others only had a few resistors changed, it depended on the particular revision.

In any case this would need to be professional serviced and in most cases would probably be more economical, based on the history of this model, to look into purchasing a new unit.

JVC had several issues with this model, one of which was the power supply not providing clean enough power. Other issues included firmware updates and other power related problems. Since your unit has gone this long, chances are there are components such as electrolytic capacitors that are enough out of spec that the circuits cannot function properly. You might be lucky enough to hit on one time when replugging might work, but it will get to a point where that will fail as well.

I am sorry to be a bearer of bad news, however if unplugging and replugging does not resolve the issue, you need to get the unit serviced / replaced.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

The reason your DVD player is not reading disc is because the lens is not reading the disc.

The reason the lens is not reading the disc is either because the lens is weak or dirty.

Try to clean the lens with a lens cleaner.
test it with a DVD, to see if it will work.

If it does not work, then the lens is weak and needs replacement.

to replace the lens,

open the player with the appropriate screwdriver, open the disc tray, and replace the lens with a new lens, test it with a DVD disc.

test it with a DVD disc.

take care

Asuming you bought in the UK it is region 2. There is software to unlock the region code but this was being sold as a CD on ebay and I really can't recommend that you down that route. James

Check for dried up electrolytic capacitors on the DC-DC converter C5318, C5340, etc.

turn off and unplug from power outlet, let sit a few minutes....then plug in power up, check JVC home page on net to see if they have problems with these, could be a disc stuck in unit....if door will not open, take back to where you bought it....I have a Pioneer but I did take the cover off and a DVD was stuck in side, I managed to carefully remove it....it is a slow process as everything is made from plastic

Most major brands have a simple method of updating Firmware. You download the FW file, burn it to a disk. Put the disk in the player. The player will recognize the update and handle the update. It may take some time as some files are large.

Warning: Updating with the wrong version of Firmware, or if the process is interrupted, it can render you player useless.

Find the version your player is currently using. Then go to JVC Support to see if there is a newer version available. Hope this helps.

Try switching off, unpluging and then plugging in again. This will reboot system. Switch on once reboot has finished and try eject.
