20 Most Recent JVC DR-MV7 DVD Recorder/VCR Questions & Answers

Sorry I can't answer directly but just wanted to suggest you bought a PVR or personal video recorder that uses a computer-type hard drive. These devices are a lot less hassle when only short-term storage is needed and any content you want to keep can be recorded later onto hard copy. I still prefer vhs for that as it is possible to edit tapes or cut out bad portions if something goes wrong - not something easy to do if a cd or dvd gets damaged.

The laser pickup assembly is shot, over time the laser becomes weaker until it can no longer read the disc,it is time to retire the item, far cheaper to replace the entire unit.

There should be a rewind button on the front of the main unit (usually indicated by either REW or 2 arrows pointing to the left), this should be next to the fast forward (again indicated by either F-FWD or 2 arrows pointing to the right) as well as PLAY and STOP - for the VCR. The only thing you would need the remote for is to set the clock and/or perform setup for the DVD player as well as timer recording. Try a universal remote which will make fast forward, play, stop, record (to VHS) and rewind easier.

Actually your DR-MV7 has set on Progressive Scan mode, turn it off to get its normal picture or hook it in Component Video input of tv to get its progressive scan mode picture.
And if it is already hooked in component video input of tv then check picture resolution of your tv that seems set on 480, please change it to 720p to watch dvd player correct picture.
Hope this info will help you.

I'm assuming you bought the DVD recorder in Asia as well. US DVDs are region 1 and won't play on a player/recorder from another region without alteration. (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dvd_regions for a description of DVD regions). There's nothing as simple as a switch unfortunately.

You may be able to find a way of altering your recorder to play all regions (region-free) but you need to be careful when doing this. Here is one person's story of this going wrong with the same model JVC.

A safer alternative may be to buy another recorder in the USA.

From the explanation, it looks like you are trying to record TV channel, correct? Some of these DVD VCR combos may not have built-in tuner. Do you have the instruction book? If not, you can download from jvc.com website. If you find it difficult, tell me the model number.
