Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://homenol.blogspot.com/ http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

It could be the lens on the laser. There are special cleaning disks for that.

Your JVC DR-MV1S DVD VIDEO RECORDER & VIDEO CASSETTE RECORDER is having a defective board that is why it is misbehaving.
The Board controls the whole affairs of the unit.
Irregular power supply, excess power, or power surge may have affected the board of the JVC DR-MV1S DVD VIDEO RECORDER & VIDEO CASSETTE RECORDER.
The board is just like the CPU, this what controls the unit.
The board needs to be replaced for the JVC DR-MV1S DVD VIDEO RECORDER & VIDEO CASSETTE RECORDER to function well again.
Fixing this problem is not a DIY. I think you might be needing the help of a repairman.
Sorry if it sounds disappointing, but it is a truth that must be told.
Good luck.

First press and hold the (Stop) button first and then press& hold the (Standby/On) Button until you see *RESET* flashing on & off on the display, hold both buttons in until the unit shuts down.

the problem is power failure in the untit'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...and see what happens.

Some philips tv's have a built in aerial amplifier, perhaps if you bought a digital aerial booster it will improve the picture quality.

There isn't one for your unit - it's not supposed to be upgradable.
