Magnavox 20-inch TV MWC20T6 must have vhs tape in. Knocking.
This is the SECOND Magnavox TV I have bought--the first 1/13/07, the second 5/12/07 and they both did the same thing. The unit will not work if a vhs tape is not in the TV. The minute you pull the vhs tape out the unit starts a loud knocking, then shuts itself off. This happens repeatedly. The first one I took back to Wal-Mart. The second one does the same thing. A design flaw. I bought a 2-year service plan. NOW I want this fixed

Look for a setting called Aspect Ratio. It will include options like 4:3, 16:9, Zoom 1, and Zoom 2. Then click through the options to select the correct one for your program. Usually older SD programs will use either 4:3 or Zoom 1, while HD programs will be set to 16x9 for Widescreen hi-def viewing. There should be a button on your remote labelled Aspect Ratio or Picture that can toggle through these image modes.
Frist of all the tv is made by Funai the next thing is it is very hard to get parts from Funai at least it has been for me they tell me anywhere from 2 months to a year on parts. Now if the set is trying to load a tape without a tape being put in then shuting off you have a bad diode on the main board.Part is marked (D1224 on main board which it is called (LED) the Funai part number is (QPQS1R563ST) Need to replace this LED per Funai tec i have done this on a few of these models this problem stands true for 20 inch 24 inch and probley any others that are made by Funai that would have this kind of problem. The led that im talking about is under the VCR chasie in the center of the board and is clear glass looking. It has to be put inone way for it to work you have to unsolder it from the board. If you are not able to do this then it would need to go to a repair shop to be done. The shop may or may not know what is wrong so you could tell them, let them know that this is per Funai tec fix for this problem also give them the part number and hope that it does not upset them some shops would be ok with it and others would not.
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.
If it's that new call the place that it was purchased and see about manufacturer warranty... It should have a one-year parts and even that will help...
The problem you're describing is likely the center led or prisim. The unit thinks there is a tape in the tape path and attempting to load it. Not an expensive repair but highly complicated for the average person...
