20 Most Recent JVC DR-MX1 DVD Recorder/VCR Questions & Answers

Depending on the format of the DVDs you record, some may not be compatible for playback on other DVD players, even if you FINALISE the disc in this recorder before playing it anywhere else. Assuming you are using the correct DVD format (for example, DVD-R), did you finalise the disc in this recorder after transferring your tape? if not, that would be the reason why the DVD won't play in another machine (I am also assuming you have everything set up correctly to enable smooth transferring - picture, sound, etc.).

Most modern DVD players recognise various disc formats (+R/-R/-R DL etc) but all of these must be finalised in the appropriate drive prior to make playback anywhere else possible. There should be a menu option or similar on this model recorder which would allow you to finalise the recording - you should only do this if you are completely happy with what you recorded, and it turned out OK. Until you finalise the recorded disc it will not work anywhere else but the deck it was written in.

I hope there is no major issue with the deck in this unit which would prevent you from finalising your discs - and achieving some success with playback in other units. The last thing anyone would want is a batch of drink coasters.

this is should be a power problem. But before I conclude on that, when did this problem begin and when was the last time the player worked perfectly.

I believe the power the circulated in the player is not sufficient to carry its function, that's why it goes to standby when its about to work.

I look forward to your reply concerning the question I asked you.

Bye for now.

That's exactly the same problem as I have, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Used to solve it by turning off at the plug and restarting. Now won't load up at all though. I love the machine - when it works - it just isn't very often!

If the unit is recording to a dvd-rw disc and giving you the trouble while reading it, you should try putting in a new disc. Optical discs become cluttered easily. If it's having a problem while accessing a hard drive, it may be possible to format the drive or something, but it'll probably have to be serviced.

this happened to mine - could be that it is getting too hot (mine is in a cabinet) - turning the machine off (by unplugging the plug, not putting on standby) and letting it cool down seems to work.

However, the dvd has now stopped working (not related to the above problem) - hence me looking
