Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player

1 Answer

MWD2205 I am trying to run a JVC hard drive Camcorder into the VHS portion so I can copy what I have on VHS tape. I can't get it to work. The instructions in the Camcorder's book says to put the VCR to it's AUX input mode (but there's no AUX input on the VCR that I can find). So how do I get the VCR to record what's coming from the Camcorder? Thanks! gaia33

    Thank you soooo much for the user manual link! My camcorder only has one jack that plugs into the camcorder then it splits to plug into the back of the VCR. I had the yellow and white plugged in the right place on the VCR, though, and had the camcorder on playback with the VCR recording--just didn't record anything. Could it have something to do with the camcorder not being analog? And why does the camcorder instructions say to make sure the VCR is in "Aux" mode?

    Thanks--it must be some other problem. That isn't working, but I appreciate the help.

    I lost my remote to my magnovox mwd2205 dvd/vcr player. I got a GE universal remote but, it only controls the vcr part. I can't make any selections from the dvd playlist or even play, stop, ff, or rewind. Nothing. How can I use my dvd player??

Please check page-14 of user manual of Funai MWD2205 VCR/DVD Combo for recording in VCR from Camera or some thing else as external source.
Here you can download User Manual for your unit, in case you dont have it.
Need further help, let me know and post here.
Thank you.

    "Aux" is generic word were used few years back for input.. Now "Line" word is being used in these products.
    Check your camera out put by hooking up yellow and white wire direct to tv input and make sure that this wire is ok and camera picture is ok in tv. After that connect it with vcr line-1 or line-2 You also need to select source (thats is VCR) in your vcr/dvd combo and then select line input etc.
    Please read manual as it has all necessary info about recording.
    Thank you.

How do I get the DVD to record what is on the VHS tape not the TV?


You can record from an external component, such as a camcorder or VCR, connected to any of the Recorder's external inputs.
1. Make sure that the component you want to record from is connected properly to the Recorder. See page 14.

2. Press AUX repeatedly to select the external input to record from.
• AV1: Audio/Video Input mounted on back panel.
• AV2: Audio/Video Input mounted on front panel.
• DV: DV Input mounted on front panel.

page 37 from manual:
http://resources.jvc.com/Resources/00/01/15/LVT2016-001B.pdf

If this fails, try to disconnect the tv input cable and connect the vcr cable.

I have a philips DVDR3510V ( DVD/VHS Recorder) which is 16 months old. The problem is that the buttons on the recorder do not work ( except power button) . We thought we had got round this as the remote...


I can only speak to getting the tape out. If all else fails, you can take the player to your local best buy and have them remove the tape for a minimal fee of no more than 30$.

My JVC DR-MV150B plays prerecorded VHS tapes fine.


Try opening the front hatch of the tape by pressing the small, square button on the right or left (short) side of the tape. Check the black tape inside for any marks, dirt, scratches, tears, etc. If the tape is fine then your unit needs to be cleaned with a tape cleaner available at any electronics specialty or retail store. Good luck to you!

I want to transfer from vhs to dvd. Video tape is protected.


You can copy VHS tapes that cannot be done on standard equipment. You can buy EZGRABBER to down load VHS tapes to your hard drive, then use a program likePower Produucer to go from your hard drive to a recordable DVD unit if you have one installed in your computer

Can the panasonic dmr-eh75v copy a vhs tape to DVD?


Yes, that's mostly what I use mine for. You actually copy your VHS to the Hard Drive, then copy from your hard drive to your blank DVD. I'm about 1/3 of my way through reformatting my VHS library (800+ tapes.)

I have a Magnavox MWD2205. I was told I can record DVDs from VHS tapes. So far not been able to. Thanks.


Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this unit cannot record DVDs - only play them back. It can record VHS tapes. Here's a link to download the owner's manual.
