I'm on my second Magnavox MWR20V6 recorder in less than a year. I've made close to 1,000 DVDs, mostly dubbing from homemade videos of TV shows, but it's not been easy. They have some finicky quirks that aren't mentioned in the manual.

The second Magnavox I got worked far better than the first, and really has been pretty satisfactory. The first one (which finally just died) never had decent tracking, even when I was copying a video tape I'd made on the same machine to DVD!

I got the error e4 54043e02 on both machines. I'd be using the exact same brand and type of DVD that I'd used for hundreds of other times, but I'd get a new spindle of DVDs and few or none of them could be formatted, and were unusable.

I think the problem might be with the DVDs. I have tried all the brands I could find. I first tried Maxell, as recommended in the manual. They worked fine (both -RW and +RW) until one day they just quit working for me. The worst were the ones that had CPRM printed on the DVDs around the inner hub, but I couldn't find any way to tell (before buying them and opening the package) which disks were this type because the label on the package was identical to the Maxell DVDs that worked. I contacted the company and sent them all the DVD numbers and error codes but they didn't tell me anything. It seems to be some kind of company secret.

Then I tried Memorex DVD+RW 4x and they worked very reliably-- until the last pack I got. I'm getting the e4 54043e02 error again!!! I emailed the company but haven't heard back yet, due to the holiday weekend.

So my big complaint is that I can't find ANY DVDs to use for recording. What I've seen so far on the internet gives me the idea that blank DVDs are kinda junky or unreliable in general, also that it's a VERY good idea to keep those old video tapes, which might end up lasting far longer that DVDs anyway. I'd hoped to get rid of the old VHS tapes due to the storage space needed for them, but it looks like I won't be. Unless I can find good DVDs, I'll just go back to VHS recording.

Incidentally, Memorex gives me the impression that they'll refund my purchase price, while Maxell had no interest in making a refund!!

Also I think the DVD-R give fewer problems, but I use +RW for nearly all my recording because I like to edit them. I'd suggest trying a DVD-R if you get desperate.

SOURCE: code for magnavox vcr/dvd player

I am going to assume you are talking about a code for a universal remote control.

It could be one of these:
434 934

The website with the most codes I have seen is http://dogbytecomputer.com/codes.htm#DVD CODES

SOURCE: I need the code Magnavox MWD200F DVD Player.

The code for MAGNAVOX MWD200F is 447 (247 partially works). It had been tested in two Philips universal remote controls (CL015 and CL035A).

SOURCE: I have a Magnavox MWR 20v6, I keep on getting error messages.

I figured how to get the Memorex DVD-R's working again. I went and bought a DVD lens cleaner and all the errors stopped at least for a while I hope.

None of those codes worked for me either, but 0675 did work.

Is there a region code magnavox dv220mw9a


Yes there is a region code built into the dv220mw9a depending on the region where the unit was sold. The version sold in the US will only read region 1 or All region DVDs.

Where was your DVD player purchased and what region code is on the DVDs? Please add a comment with more information on your problem.

Magnavox dual model dvd/vcr model ZV450MW8A keeps showing error code 45 when trying to record from sat.


This is a problem with the satellite box it has copy protection for certain programs. The only way to find a solution for this problem is to call their technical help and see if they have a work around filter or release code. The error you are seeing is listed your owners manual as a copy protection error. This is on page 43 of the manual. There is no work around yet published on the internet. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

I forget the exact steps for the remote to record from my video camera to dvd recorder


You have to plug the video cam into the front ports of the Magnavox.
Then press the Setup Button
Go to Required Settings --> OK
Video Input --> OK
Go to E2 --> make sure it says "video in," unless you are using an S-Video connector --> OK
Press Setup

Start playing from Camcorder and make sure that you can see the picture on your TV screen.
Press REC on the Magnavox

Good luck!

Can the Magnavox Dvd player/VCP DV200MW8 record shows onto VHS's


unfortunately the machine is not a recording machine IE: it is a player only. However in todays day and age you can pick up a good used one at the goodwill for around 10-20 bucks that can record. hook up is easy, one cable in one out and presto you can record on a blank tape. just remember the begining of a blank tape always has a few seconds of nothing on it so dont hit rec just as you are watching it start the machine about ten seconds early.
hope this was helpfull.

Dvd hook up


Yes you have to use the front connection for the vcr and the back for the cable. Channel E1(Rear) will be the back connection and E2(Front) will be the front connection.

Dish Pro record code for Mag combo


ZNREL, I've done this with Dish Pro before. Setup the Dish remote to control the Mag combo in the VCR position. Press the SAT button and select the guide. Go to the program in the guide and select it. The "record this program" routine should pop up, set it up. Here's the key, make sure the Dish remote has the VCR button selected and that the remote is placed where it can "see" the Mag combo. At the set time, the Dish remote will change the DishPro to the proper channel and then issue s "record" command via infrared to the Mag combo to start recording. DishNet has all of the device codes to their remotes downloadable from their site.

I can't play any VCR tapes or DVD's in my Magnavox. Shows E1


It may be a timer setting after a power problem. On page 90 of the manual there are setups for the timers My VCR won't do things without the time set either. The manual may be downloaded here.

http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/MWR20V6.pdf

Basically get into the setups and set the time and hit enter. I hope this works.
