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.
