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.

We would be happy to help you with getting your DISH Networkremote to control your TV. Pressand hold the TV button located on the top of your remote until all mode buttonback lights come on, then release. Use the number buttons to enter thecodes for your Magnavox television; here some of the codes we currently have: 560, 829, 566, 761, 891, 828, 656, and 770.Press the pound (#) button. To check that the code works try several differentfunctions on the remote to make sure it will properly operate the TV. Keep inmind that some codes may not be compatible with your equipment. If this is thecase, try the other codes listed for that device until you find one thatis compatible with your equipment.

We hope this help and thank you for being a valued DISH Network customer!

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.
