Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I bought a Magnavox 810H 160GB HDD/DVD recorder. It's a decent machine which worked perfectly for a few months, but now I can't get it to record to DVD. The HDD recording and playback functions work fine, but any time I insert a blank DVD (and I've tried all formats and various brands), it won't recognise that there's a blank disc in the drive. I know the Magnavox are re-badged Philips models, but I can't seem to get service or support details for this Magnavox unit anywhere. Can anyone help????

Try switching it over to DVD . Because you may still have it on HDD when you put the disc in it may be that the unit is still thinking you are on HDD and don't recognise it as a disc just the hard drive

CLEANING THE DISC LENS ? If this unit still does not perform properly although you refer to the relevant sections and to ?TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE? in this Owner?s Manual, the laser optical pickup unit may be dirty. Consult your dealer or an Authorized Service Center for inspection and cleaning of the laser optical pickup unit. FROM EWR20V5 OWNERS MANUAL FUNAI-CORP.COM

SOURCE: Won't Read blank disc!!

I my DVD-HR735 wont recognise any discs at times, and is getting worse. I've now discovered (out of frustration) that if I tip the front up to between 30-45 degrees, it will play all the discs it says were unreadable. I've started jamming three dvd boxes under the front of the machine when i want to play dvds.

SOURCE: Hi team I have 230volts at input pl32 but on

have you checked i f the rectifiers -diodes are stopping the minus part of the ac current,making it a dc voltage,ther either 4 single diodes or 1 round one which has 4 legs you want to measure the terminal marked with a plus sign i think,this should be a smooth dc voltage of half the input ac voltage ,in this case around 115 vdc.,it may been a power surge have you the mains suppressent capacitor,s this usually there to take the surge of 240 mains supply ,supplied by your energy company.during busy usage,there is usually a power surge ie,during tv ads,ets. is there any input /output current/voltage,to the dc transformer or out of it,have you followed the voltage/current throug the power supply circuit.

SOURCE: My HDD/DVD recorder will not format discs.

You can format only RW disks. If you are using R (recordable only once) disks you don't need to format them, just burn directly the movies.

SOURCE: Are you going to replace

Never owned this model but i owned another DVR which i replaced when the switch to digital occurred - no analogue channels to pick up and record - no use for the device - donated it and bought a new one, with a digital tuner.

Sounds like the hard disk might be full. How many recordings have you got on the machine? You say it won't allow you to delete "data". Have you protected the recordings?

I have a Magnavox MWR 20v6, I keep on getting error messages.


I figured how to get the Memorex DVD-R's working again. I went and bought a DVD lens cleaner and all the errors stopped at least for a while I hope.

I have a hdd/dvd recorder model rh7880/rh7500 set timer recording to record onto dvd, machine switched itself on as normal but did not start to record and froze up.cannot get anything to respond either...


Recorder wasn't under warranty, so opened the unit up removed the dvd - rw disc ,which was corrupted as it turns out, put the machine back together switched it on and it worked perfectly.I have since tested it by recording both on to dvd,hdd and used the dubbing format and have had no problems.In the future I would recommend bying only top quality discs as it seems a dodgy one was responsible.
