Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Magnavox MWC24T5A I have this combo TV vcr/DVD that started shutting itself down right after you push the power button to turn it on. I found one other person that posted the same problem and no one has responded. I do have an electronics degree but don't know much about TV repair....except the tube voltage dangers,etc. When I push the power on button, the unit turns on for about 3 seconds and then shuts down. THere is no DVD or VCR tape in the drives. Thanks Larry

It is most likely a bad IR diode underneath the prisim in the VCR, common failure for those combination units. I have used a simple generic diode from Radio Shack or you can spend a little more and get the politically correct part from almost any electronics vendor like Vance Baldwin ot Tritronics.
Be observant when installing these they are polorized and go in only one direction. Getting one in reverse will burn up the new diode instantly.

Magnavox DVD eject button fell in TV


Take a close look where the plastic button was--it if there would engage a tiny round black rubber like button---using a pencil eraser see if you can gently push the button.

On some sets you can push the Up and Down channel buttons at the same time.

You might also buy a new remote:

I have a magnavox mwd2205 dvd/vcr combo with no remote. I've tried programming it to my Charter cable remote and to a GE universal remote, but can't get it to do anything but turn the machine on and off....


This DVD/VCR isn't compatible with the GE Universal remote. Sorry.

I would recommend contacting Magnavox (actually FUNAI CORP.) at www. magnavox.com, and seeing if they would be willing to send you a remote that was compatible with your player. There was another Magnavox player remote that also worked with Magnavox MWD2205. So it's possible that a number of remotes would work for you. Good luck! :)

Magnavox TV/VCR COMBO


Im thinking that maybe you a have a timer recording set. The whole unit wont function at all if you turn it on via power button (remote or unit). There should be a button at the top of the remote called 'timer set' pressing this will disable that mode and allow complete use of everything. but make sure u press timer set again when powering down, otherwise simply turning off the machine will leave the timer recording disabled.

Magnavox combo vcr dvd


What you're describing is common when the center LED has failed / gone out. If you're really good at taking a unit like this apart and putting it back together - and not too bad with a solder stick you could attempt this one yourself... It is a pretty intensive repair but not difficult for a good shop just time consuming. The part isn't too expensive either, just an infared LED... In fact, we've run a bit short on stock once in awhile and bought one of the off the shelf versions from Radio Shack which worked just fine. Good Luck Bill
