  2. JVC dvd machines are the pickiest I know about media.
    Try the dvd disc in another machine.
    Unplug the JVC for 30 minutes or so.
    See if doing that and resetting helps.

    Thanks Terry, I have tried everything, but problem is it won't stop flashing loading. I can't open dvd drive or anything else. I left dvd player unplugged for over 24 hours, but still the same!

    2010 update -- Fixing the JVC DVD Recorder "LOADING" Issue / JVC Will Not Recognize Blank DVDs
    I've compiled a new thread on this topic at http://www.digitalfaq.com/forum/showthread.php/fixing-jvc-dvd-2008.html -- I've been trying to organized all available JVC information better for those who need it!

    The disc is, for whatever reason, stuck in the drive? You might have to dismantle the drive. I have to do this from time to time with any drive. I've had discs stuck in my Toshiba, Pioneer and RCA recorders/burners in the past. My RCA was just this week, in fact. The disc was not bad, but it reacted oddly to the machine.

    Munish,

    I bought a DR-MH50S 18 months ago. After 6 months I got the fault you have. In HDD mode selecting "Edit" would show "Navigation" on the display and then if you tried to do anything it just crashed and went into Loading mode. I took it back and got a replacement. 12 months later - after using it mainly as a DVD player - got the same fault. Nothing to do with disks - there was no disk involved. My guarantee runs out tomorrow so I am just taking it back and this time will get a refund. Adenough of JVC.

    Thanks, looks like JVC built a faulty player. They should recall this model, if people having so much problems. I believe not many people complained about this.

    Two people with problems does not warrant a recall. That's a bit unrealistic and overboard. All products have duds. Other times the problem is user-caused and the user is unaware of it.

    The problem with "loading" is that it's a generic error message. It could mean anything. You have to carefully do a process of elimination to discover the problem.

    Something as simple as a mild power surge on an unprotected line could have fried a power supply component. Remember these are nothing more than specialized computers, for all intents and purposes.

    Your probably right LS but having invested 400+ in what was supposed to be an upmarket machine and worked my way through two of them (both ending up with exactly the same sudden death fault) I have moved on to another model.

    Interesting that when I took it back to COSTCO the guy at the returns desk asked me what the problem was and when I told him he never asked for any more details and I got an "Ohh, that fault again" look.

    They were selling a couple of them on what I think was an end-of-line basis for only 170 but - naah! Giving Phillips a try this time.

    Hi, I've probably the similar problem with that model. Mine is maybe 2 year old but after a couple of week after purchase I had already to bring it back because it couln.'t read origianl dvd.
    Now a couple of months ago I had my tv out of order so I did unplug all electric cables until tv was back. When I wanted to proceed withi coping old vhs tapes to the hard dick before copy onto a dvd, I remarked that the "loading" message came and the recorder did switch off automatically. Yesterday I tried again to copy a vhs to the HD but I was not working.
    Right now I didn't test if at least it can play dvd but the recording function is not working anymore, and that just without any interverntion from myself. The recorder simply was unplugged for 2-3 weeks. So what the other guy suggested to let it unplugged for some hours is not working (at least with mine).
    I see that these messages are back to 2007, did someone in the meantime solve the problem ? My warranty is of course runned out, maybe I can try to pass these messages were I did purchase it and see what they mean, but........very few hopes.
    thanks for any further suggestion
