Question about Jamo DVR-50 System
My Jamo DVR 50 has frozen with a DVD inside. The Unit does not respond to any commands and I have referenced the user manual troubleshooting guide which basically instructs the user to power down the system for 30 seconds with no luck. Any sugestions? Thanks in advance. Sketos
I have the same frozen problem vith Jamo DRV-50.
But I found this:
Its a swedish site for electronic repearments, Jamo DVR-50 have problems with heat also and capacitors in the power suply unit goes burned. So the instructions are:
1.Simptoms:Various strange error
2.Solution: Replace the capacitors in the power supply, especially C30 470μF/ 10V, C31 2200μF/ 10V and C16 1000μF/ 10V.
My service guy already told me that some electrical parts in the power supply unit are burned, he replace them and succeded to powerOn the unit but still jamo have problems staying powered on and now im going to tell him to replace those capacitors C30, C31 and C16, and i hope this will work.

The DVD Drive in your system has gone bad. My unit did the same thing, so I opened the unit up and just unplugged the DVD drive and now Im able to use the unit as a receiver until I can find a replacement drive. I will perform a new post when or if I can find a bare drive for the unit

I just had this problem. Take your jamo DVR 50 apart and remove the disk, put it back together and it should work (well it worked for me) Turn the power off and unscrew all the screws round the side. Lift the cover off and put it to one side. Unscrew the 2 screws (one on left one on the right) that hold the front pannel on and remove it (you need to disconect the 2 cables for it first). Take out the DVD drive and open it up. Looking from the top you should see a thin chip at the front, unclip it and lift it up. Underneath this you will see a white catch, get a screwdriver and push it in and the draw should open. Take the DVD out and close the draw. Put everything back together making sure its all in the same place and power it back up. Try playing a different DVD as the disk may be dodgy... if none of them work and keep locking up replace your DVD drive. I accept no responsibility for loss or damage to parts or for personal injury. Follow this tutorial at your own risk !
