DVD Recorder/VCR combo shuts down during DVD recording
My JVC DR-MV1SL DVD recorder/VCR combo is two years old. Recording of DVDs has gotten progressively worse (but can be intermittently succcessful). Frequently the unit will record for several minutes, then shut down. I have tried Fuji and Sony DVD-R discs, and I tried a lens cleaning DVD. Shortly after purchase I returned the unit to JVC for replacement of software they admitted was glitchy, and which caused the unit to lock up in permanent "loading" mode. After repair the unit was okay for about a year. Now I feel that this unit is probably not worth struggling with. I am thinking of buying the Panasonic DMR-ED75VS combo unit instead. Any suggestions or advice?

If the device is still under warranty then it is worth calling and getting a repair/replacement. If not, then go with the new unit. it sounds like the one you have was not a very good unit to begin with. make sure you read the consumer reports on new available units before buying, so as to avoid buying another lemon.

When the unit was new in USA, it retailed for around $550USD which at the current foreign exchange rate is about $542 (approximate). According to one forum, many people are advising that you steer clear of this 2004/05 model! It doesn't last. They have had numerous problems with this model.
I personally would not recommend that anyone bother with this particular model at all. Buy a better brand (it does not have to be new or terribly expensive). JVC products over the past few years have been less than reliable.
OK after some research I would say your drive mechinisim is worn out and needs replaced (this is why it flashes reset because the drive needs to spin at a constant proper speed to read/write the disks) I would go to www.jvc.com click customer suport then click find a service center near you and they will tell you the closest place to you to send or take in for repair!
I would not take it to just anyone because JVC carries the origanil parts and they know thier products better then any one else!
I hope my research helps you a great deal!
