Had the same problem on my JVC vcr/dvd combo unit.
You need to turn off the timer function. I did this by making sure my remote was in the "VHS" mode...turn the swith from TV to the right (found on the remote in the upper left corner...an then hit the "vcr" button. Then point the remote at the VCR unit and hit the No. 4 button (timer turns off). Your unit should not have the red timer displayed and you should be able to play your tapes okay.
There are several Philips and Magnavox DVD/VCR combos that have sepearate video connectors for the DVD and VCR side. Double-check the yellow composite cable that is plugged into the back of your Magnavox - it should be plugged into an area that says either "DVD/VCR" or "VCR". If you are currently using red, green, and blue video cables, you will need to add a second video cable - a yellow composite would be easiest. The reason for this change is that red/green/blue cables will only operate the DVD side on most Philips/Magnavox players - that is just the way they decided to design them. If you happen to find a model number listed on the back of your combo unit, and have the model number of your television, I can take a second look at it, and tell you exactly which connections to make. Good luck!
1. Turn on the unit 2. Open the loading tray 3. Press the "Setup" button on the remote 4. Navigate to the "Preferences" page using the right arrow key 5. Enter 138931 6. You will now see the current region code displayed 7. Use the Up/Down arrow keys to select the region required or "0" for all regions 8. Press the "Play" button on the remote
The manuals and an FAQ for connection questions are available from Philips website (they do Maganvox as well).
Make sure you have a Red, white, yellow (A/V Composite) cable going from thsi unit to input of TV. If you are using coaxial (F-connector or "screw-in") cable going from this unit to TV, make sure you have an RF modulator between dvd and TV, or you may have problems.
