Re: power light is on, but nothing happens.
Two questions, Are you able to load a cassette?, and are you able to watch TV through your VCR?
These two questions are vital to further analysis. if the answer to both is no then you will have to take the VCR to a TV repair shop because it will require internal repairs that you may not have the equipment to perform.
Please get back to me with the answers to these two questions

This happened last night on my new-to-me JVC SR-MV55. Even powering it off for five minutes didn't help. It apparently crashed during dubbing (couldn't create more than 9 chapter codes?).
Manual suggested holding down Stop and Power after powering it down. But no matter how long I held Power it wouldn't stop flashing. But I tried Stop/Powwer for a bit, nothing seemed to happen, then maybe 15 seconds later it restarted "WAKE UP'".
you have probably bent the tab that holds the tape end sensor or its light. The tapes have a clear section at the end of the tape and the light shines through to the sensor to tell the unit that the tape is finished. The light should not pass through the recordable part of the tapes. If anything is bent the light may shine on the sensor and tell the unit you're at the end of the tape and to shut off. Some units have a tape tension sensor also that tells the unit that the tape is broken and to shut off. Only way to know is to remove power and take it apart and look for anything that may be bent. Stay away from the rotating head assembly and the posts that the tap travels on. Do not apply power with the unit open. Do not load a tape and remove power as some units freeze in the loaded position and will not load new tapes unless manually placed back in the unloaded position.
This happened to me one time. Judging from the date of this, you probably have found a solution. The bottom line is that the camera has accidentally been placed in "Standby" mode. It is the lever surrounding the back of camera record button. When this is moved to standby, the VCR mode works, but nothing for the Camera mode. Hope this helps.
