Need a faster answer?
iT MAY BE A DV CASSETTE WAS INSERTED AND HAD A TENSION PROBLEM THAT CAUSED THE PLAYER TO CHEW TAPE . PLEASE SEE IF JVC SERVICE CENTRE IN LONG BEACH CAN REPAIR IT ( GOOGLE FOR THEM) . ANOTHER OPTION IS TO MANUALLY OPEN THE UNIT YOURSELF-
REMOVE THE MAIN POWER CORD OFF .
.
YOU WILL REMOVE 8 SCREWS TO REMOVE THE TOP COVER OFF - 2 ON EACH OF THE SIDE , AND 4 AT THE BACK , , AND GET THE TOP COVER OFF, THEN YOU CAN PEEK INTO

THE DV TAPE DRIVE TO SEE IF THERE IS A TAPE CHEW UP MESS , IF YOU ARE OKAY TO DESTROY THE TAPE , CUT OFF AND MANUALLY EXTRICATE LOOSE TAPE WITH A FORCEPS , , THEN FORCE EJECT THE TAPE BY TURNING THE BLACK GROOVED GEARWHEEL ONTHE RIGHT FRONT OF THE TAPE DRIVE - BY PUSHING IT INWARDS INTO THE SLOT , YOUR TAPE WILL MOVE UPWARDS , THEN PUSH THE WHITE PIECE ON TOP OF THE TAPE TOWARDS THE TAPE DRIVE DOOR , THE TAPE SHOULD NOW COME OFF THE DOOR , PULL IT OUT .IF THERE IS AND DVD LEFT IN THE DVD DRIVE , YOU CA MANUALLY REMOVE IT BY TAKING OFF 4 SCREWS AT THE TOP BLACK ROOF OF THE DVD DRIVE , AND REMOVE ANY DVD HELD INSIDE .REPLACE THE SCREWS BACK ON THE DVD DRIVE AND THEN CLOSE THE TOP COVER OF THE UNIT .

POWER BACK THE UNIT ON AND SEE IF IT RESETS ITS STATE -
NOT FINDINY ANY PLAYBACK MATERTIAL IN THE DV OR DVD DTRAY - IT SHOULD GO TO OFF , SWITCH OFF THE UNIT FROMTHE FRONT SWITCH AND THEN UNPLUG IT. RESTART THE UNIT AFTER 1 MIN AND IT SHOULD BOOT PROPERLY AS LONG AS FIRMWARE IS NOT CORRUPTED ON ON-BOARD HDD.. PLEASE CHECK IF THE REAR HDD COOLER FAN IS NOW WORKING GOOD LUCK . PLEASE RETENSION ANY DV TAPES BEFORE PUTTING THEM INTO THE PLAYER . EVEN DV HEAD CLEANING TAPES CAN CAUSE ISSUES . JVC WILL NOT ADMIT IT .
