Magnavox 2205 DVD/VCR Output Channel Control

I have a Magnavox 2205 Combination DVD/DVR and I would like to change the the output channel from 3 to 4. I lost power at my house and the unit defaulted back to output channel 3. This unit, though inexpensive, has been working daily for my kids for years now, and I would like to keep it. I have misplaced my user's guide and there is no slide switch on the back as there used to be. It is older now, and I can't seem to find the user's guide online.

1: set tv to channel you want your vcr output to be on. 2: turn vcr on (if it is a vcr/dvd combo make sure it is on vcr) 3: put in video tape. 4: press play button one time, release it, and then press and hold it for three to five seconds. i had to call customer support to figure this out on mine.

I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9 DVD Recorder VCR Combo. Do I need a separate tuner? If so what kind? Thanks


Hello
Ofcourse you need an external tuner to receive any RF signals. Your Magnavox is not equipped with internal tuner with it. OK.

How do you change to 3 or 4 channel on tv for it to work?


on the back of the DVD/VCR you will find a little slide switch that will select either chan 3 or 4 for output ... your tv must be set to the same channel.

Plays on wrong channel


ok i downloaded and read your DVR-1000 manual , this is what you will do .

While the DVD+VCR is turned off, press and hold CHANNEL (up/down) button on the front panel for about five seconds.

The unit will turn itself on and “RF 03” or “RF 04” appears on
the front panel display

Use CH ( up / down ) button on the front panel or CH ( up / down ) button on the remote control to change the RF output
channel (CH 03 or CH 04).

Turn the DVD+VCR off and then on

Set the TV to channel 3 or 4 depending on the RF
output channel you selected.
Now you can watch the DVD+VCR playback on CH3
or CH4 of your TV

PS , you should see a child lock button on the remote , if you press that button , you will disable front panel button controls so kids can't change anything , press it again to unlock that feature , it might come in handy.

Thanks for using Fix Ya .

Connecting magnavox dvd/vcr player DV220MW9 to a 40 year old TV


What type of Inputs do you have on your TV. (ANT IN, S-Videio, RCA Video,RCA Audio)

If you only have a ANT In or RF Coaxial hook up you will need a RF Modulator

Can't change output on DVD from channel 3 to 4


Unfortunately, Broksonic's website doesn't offer manual downloads. But product information for the 810C and 810D both say the output is channel 3/4 switchable. So if there isn't a rear panel switch (or one hiding somewhere else on the unit), it must be through a setup menu via the remote control. If you have the remote it shouldn't be too much trouble to experiment with the options until you find the right menu. If you didn't get the remote along with the unit, you are probably going to have to live with whatever channel it's on already.

Trying to watch vcr on channel 4, but the vcr is set to channel 3


You can watch the TV programs
with the tuner of the unit. (Usually
channel 3 or 4 of the TV is
available for the RF converter
setting.) Be sure to connect the
unit to a TV using the RF cable.
1
Select channel 3 on your TV.
2
Press [VIDEO/TV] on the remote
control.
• If noise appears, change the
RF output channel of the unit to
CH 4 by pressing [VIDEO/TV]
for 3 seconds. The RF output
channel will alternate between
CH3 and CH4
