Jvc dvd vhs burner dr-mv1s and dr-m10 loading continues to flash

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.

good luck......

Cooling fan stays on all night


You probably have set up one scart as being connected to 'sat' or sat controlled
(I cannot remember the exact setting)
If you do so, the recorder is controlled by the satreceiver, and is 'on' all the time.

Good luck (my DR M10 broke down yesterday - The drive does not recognise dvd-ram disks anymore :( )

some blank DVD+R discs will not read on my DVD player


The JVC DR-MV1S DVD Recorder / VCR Combo does not suppport DVD+R, only DVD-R, -RW etc.
At least mine only supports these formats, as when I first bought mine, I got some blank DVD's they were DVD+R.
I recorded a movie onto one on my PC, then tried playing it in the JVC unit... no go!
Instruction manual (available for D/load online) proved to me that I could not play +R disks!!
