    All of a sudden my Jvc recorder has developed a problem.That is when i insert a dvd or a dvd-r disc it comes up "Reading disc" and then after about 30 seconds it just says"Stop" and that is it.Is this a common problem with these reocrders and is there a fix for it.

    cheers

    I get this sometimes when formating discs. It will also finish then suddenly start reading disc again.

    Have a look at remaining disc space, may find it is 0:00 which usually means a problem with the disc.

    JVC is very fussy aboout discs - need to be 110% perfect!!!!!!!

    I've found that RITEK dyes are the best ones for the JVC.

    Check with Comercial DVD to see if it plays OK.

    I get the same problem even witha commercial dvd but instead of saying "stop" it goes to reading disc and then nothing.Is there a reset button on the player?I have looked through the manual but cannot find reference to one.
    Cheers

    Yes there is a reset and it is in the manual somewhere..............

    ..... under Initalizing... (page 110)

    Switch off using power button on front
    Press and hold power on button and press stop at the same time
    After about 2 second it should reset

    If there is a disc in it will take an age to stop up as it seems to check the structure of the disc, not that it corrects anything.

    This is what happeneds when it gets to a tiny mark on the disc, it stops, then resets.

    I found the same problem with my DR-M1. The discs have to be meticulously spotless for it not to throw a wobbler. I have been using TDK -RWs from CD-R Media.co.uk.

    Have you tried Ram media i tried it with Ritec (i think) and the replay back would constantly break up and be unwatchable.Worse thing is that i bought a pack of 25 cos thats all i could get at time.

    No, I haven't used RAM, as it's not a suitable means for my personal recording and playback requirements. I tend to get a bit behind with stuff, due to spending too much time online :D and at this moment, I have about 15 -RWs backed up, waiting to be watched.
