Check DVD discs for cracks,big scratches,dirts and grims?All DVD dics are original discs like comercial movies or materials discs?Most DVD players have problems,reading and playing copy discs,because of it finaling codes of the DVD copy recoders players used it to coping it.
Any chance someone went near the DVD/VCR and dusted with some Pledge or any kind of dusting spray? It sounds like something has got the DVD driver chip acting crazy. May be a faulty disc tray switch telling the controller the door is opening and closing all the time. If its brand new, do you have an opportunity to take advantage of a warranty claim?
if you have a jvc dvd vhs burner dr-mv1s or the dr-m10 with the loading that continues to flash with no control of the unit at all there is the first step to take witch is a master or hard reset. done by holding the stop and power buttons at the same time for 10 or more seconds till it powers of then on again.
if this does not work or has no reaction to the unit at all them repairs will have to be made.
i have scowered the internet for fixes for this issue and have found a few interesting things but nothing concrete at all. but lead me in the correct area of the issue. although jvc was fixing these for free at one time they are no longer servicing them under their "free fix"
the problem with the unit is the power supply and although i found that easily on the web. i could not find what the exact problem was untill i did my own diagnostic testing and found that capasitor c5207 on the power supply board was bad and buldging/leaking. it is a 1500uf 6.5v @85 degrees witch i used a 105degree due to the temp and relating the issue with a bad design flaw. so use the higher temp rating one to insure long lasting use.
don't forget to preform the master/hard reset previously mentioned above and you will be back up and running in no time.
Measure the 5V line on the DVD drive,if to low replace the bad caps in power supply.There is an 22 microfarad elco you can upgarde to 47 microfarad to last longer.
If the 5V line is ok the problem could be the harddisk,this is not traceable without the proper software.
This player is equipped to do a self power on test to all pain parts of the player to assertain everything is ok. The blue light will keep flasing until it completes its task and then the blue light will stop flashing and you you can start reusing it.....................sodeep
That's exactly the same problem as I have, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Used to solve it by turning off at the plug and restarting. Now won't load up at all though. I love the machine - when it works - it just isn't very often!
