JVC HR-XV33U DVD/VCR

My dad's DVD player shows a split screen or wavy black/white/gray lines when a DVD is inserted. Tried 3 different DVDS, 2 home recorded and 1 profesionally recorded and got same thing. Any suggestions? No problems on the VCR side.

Press and hold the Progressive Scan button for more than 3 seconds. It should clear right up.

The problem probably lies in the analog to digital converter. This is a hardware IC problem usually only repairable by changing the board. In most cases, this is cost prohibitive. My suggestion is to check the back of the unit and see if it has external video in jacks. Or auxillary in , if it does buy a cheap DVD player from one of the big box stores. Also if you do this buy the replacement warranty, it usually only costs $10 or less. Scrivitron

DVD player is black and white and screen is split

Make sure the player is compatible with your TV broadcast standards. A Pal player will show b&w pictures when connected to a NTSC tv and vice versa

Dvd side used to work but now when i put in a dvd it says NO DISC. I've tried several different dvds but still says the same thing. I have the HR-XVC25U

Hi

This is really strange. This summer my DVD side of my JVC Combo did the same thing. I went through the circuitry with a scope but I couldn't nail it down to one component. I called JVC about a new board but they wanted more than a new unit costs. They wouldn't tell me if this is a problem across the whole line. I ended up buying a new Panasonic combo at WalMart for less than $100. Its working well for now.

Thanks

DVD is stuck in my JVC VCR/DVD Combo

Find the small hole on the front of the player. Get a small paper clip and straighten it out. Insert one end into the hole and the DVD should pop out.

Seinfeld DVD episodes won't play

It is probably not your VCR. If it is only the Seinfeld DVD's then the format that the production company wrote on those few episodes are incompatible with your vcr. I know I'm not solving your problem much, but don't go waste money on a brand new Vcr when not needed.

Video input from dvd player shows as black screen w/ squigly color lines

have you tried other devices for input...vcr, or other dvd players to see if it is a problem with the player or with the tv? Check the output setting for the dvd player (1080i etc) and ensure you are connecting to the proper inputs for either analog or digital signals (RCA inputs or RGB).
