Question about Philips Magnavox MWR20V6 DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

VCR problems It is difficult to insert a tape into the VCR. When it does go in, it plays for a few seconds, then the whole thing shuts down. The power will not stay on if there isn't a tape in it, even though it can't be playing.

My solution was to call my warranty company. I'm sending it in and getting my money back. They said it would cost more to fix it than I paid for it.

Panasonic Ag-DV1000 mini DV deck shuts down after inserting tape


When there's a problem with the drive mechanism of a VCR it will shut down to prevent damage. All operations of a VCR are controlled by a computer chip. This is told what mode the mechanism is in by a Mode Switch. If this is faulty it can cause the machine to play up. Sometimes a spray of Video 40 on the mode switch can restore operation. However it will not correct the problem if the mechanism has any damage on it.

VCR plays 15 seconds, TV shuts off. Same without tape inserted


Sounds like a typical Switched Mode Power Supply fault, or an internal thermal fault that is shutting down the power supply, over & over. Really you need to get it serviced. You need to get a firm "Quote" for repair, remember these days repair can often exceed replacement cost.

If it is not a bad soldering joint somewhere, it could be the mode switch. They can sometimes be cleaned with Servisol Video 40, but you might have to replace it.

Magnavox VCR/DVD recorder model ZV450mw8. VCR plays a tape for 6 seconds then shuts the whole unit down.


You will need a technical person to open the unit. This problem can be as simple as a dirty sensor, or bad tape drive parts, or burned out computer chip.

I found a loose part in the VCR bay I'd like to reinstall. Part #T5B


I found that part #T5B was on the bottom of the VCR tape tray on the right side of the VCR tape bay opening and was spring activated by inserting the tape to allow the tray to retract into the player mechanism. Without a tape installed, part T5B prevents the tape carriage from retracting.
However, I still couldn't get the whole mechanism timed properly, and gears were skipping teeth, the mechanism was still binding, and shutting the power for the whole player down. Therefore, I removed the rubber drive belt that operated the VCR tray insertion/ retraction process, and disabled the VCR side from operating at all. This allowed the power to remain on and allow the DVD side to work properly.
This worked only for the Phillips DVP3150V/37. I cannot say for certain if other Phillips players are the same.

Some tapes will start and immediately shut down


the vcr is on threshold of belt life. try replacing (or cleaning with alcohol) the take-up reel belt. The vcr has a built-in time-out feature to protect the video tape. if it takes too long for things to happen, shut-down occurs.
