Crack the top open and look inside for any foreign matter. Usually the cause is debris in the IR path that detects start and end of tape or the loading mechanisim is faulty.

I have a Magnavox MRV700VR. I can record on a DVDR, but when I try to record on a DVDRW it tells me "disc error". Why?


It will be either that you have not formatted the disc or that you are using the wrong type of disc. You will need a DVD+RW on a + machine or DVD-RW on a - machine. Most recorders will playback the other type but not record on it.

Magnavox vcr/dvd combo the vcr part only plays for 8 seconds


What you have is called a transport problem in the VCR unit--the mechanism is either jammed or something in it that loads the tape is bad.

Every time it is used it cycles to self check the mechanism--if it fails it is usually a belt bad or a gear assembly not working.

Someone would have to open unit to see what is happening.

At least a couple of possibilities, check the yellow video cable that runs from the VCR to the TV, is it plugged into the side of the combo unit that says vcr?

Is your TV on the right source? You could have plugged the audio into say AV2 and the video into AV1, causing a mismatch. Make sure the yellow, red, and white are all plugged into one input section on the TV (AV1, AV2, Video 1, Video 2, etc).

Magnavox mwd2206


On a unit I checked with this same symptom, removing the top cover allows the unit to stay on and operate normally. There is some sort of sensor at the left middle of the chassis, which, when unblocked by any opaque object, allows the unit to remain on. A temporary fix (not advisable) would be to replace the top cover with a piece of clear plastic or taut saran wrap (no vent holes needed). It's unclear exactly where/what that sensor is from a cursory test. This is a work in progress on someone else's machine that I lack full access to.

Unit Keeps Powering Off...Will not stay on


The first thing you need to try is unpluging the unit from the wall totally then wait for about 5 minutes then plug it back in and try again,if you get the same results the cassete is probably stuck in the vcr and that is why the it unit shutsdown.It will continuo to do this until thye cassete is taken out without being force.The unit will need to be service by a professional.
