Magnavox dv200mw8 dvd/vhs combo shuts down right after turned on

My hubby bought a magnavox dv200mw8 dvd/vhs combo about a year ago and it will not stay on long enough to do anything. I will turn it on, the vhs part will try to eject a tape that is not in it and it will shut down. The same thing if I try to change it to dvd. Any suggestions besides taking a hammer to it? I have no patients.

What you're describing is common when the center LED has failed / gone out. If you're really good at taking a unit like this apart and putting it back together - and not too bad with a solder stick you could attempt this one yourself... It is a pretty intensive repair but not difficult for a good shop just time consuming. The part isn't too expensive either, just an infared LED... In fact, we've run a bit short on stock once in awhile and bought one of the off the shelf versions from Radio Shack which worked just fine. Good Luck Bill

SOURCE: vhs tape gets chewed

Dear William,
the rubber belts and rubber capstan need cleaning/conditioning. you can attempt this with alcohol swabs and if you find rubber conditioner (in the past was easy to find in audio supply stores) apply some of this also. if this treatment does not solve, then may need new rubber belt kit. good luck.

SOURCE: stuck tape in vhs/tv combo

Unplug the TVCR, take the cover off, find the motor (probably on the right side of the mechanism) and turn its shaft with your fingers until you have run the tape back out. Now plug it back in and try it again with a scarificial tape. If it continues to fail, replace all the rubber belts in the mechanism.
Hope ya fix it!

SOURCE: Cannot eject VHS tape from Sony SLV-X811

I had a similar problem with a Panasonic VCR. It would not eject the tape and gave an error code. I found that the door does not quite fully open, so that the top of the tape hits the door and cannot eject. If I turn off and then turn on the VCR the error code disappears. Then I press the eject button and simultaneously hold the door fully open with one finger until the tape starts to eject and clears the door.

SOURCE: VCR tape won't eject

The flap on the door stays open until the tape is ejected. There are two possible ways to remove the tape. First, with the power off, try to locate the drive pulley or gear on the side of the tape housing. It may be possible to turn it with your finger and cause the tape to eject. The eject mechanism will move VERY slowly when you use this technique.

The second way to do it should normally be done by an experienced technician, because it involves taking it even farther apart...and it may be difficult to reassemble. There are typically four screws that hold the tape mechanism in place...two near the top front and two near the back. It should be possible to remove those screws and pull the entire mechanism out of the VCR. Then you can more easily rotate the eject pulley (or gear) and remove the tape. If this sounds a little scary, I would definitely recommend placing the top back on and acting like nothing happened!

I just bought a magnavox DV225MG9 A player . The salesman said it could copy vhs tapes to dvd. how do I do this with this machine?


If this is the correct model number, magnavox DV225MG9, above, this unit is only a DVD player not a DVD recorder. It won't dub DVDs to VHS either.

I wish that I could be more help.

I have a magnavox dvd vcr combo mwd2205 The dvd


No solution just the exact same problem:
Does anyone know how to fix the DVD motor? I bought this from Walmart a few years ago and after about 1-2 yrs that was the 1st thing that went on it. The VHS still plays fine. I got tired of trying to "clean" it and its been packed away for at least 2 yrs. I recenly dug it out of the closet but of course its out of warranty. Is it worth repairing (its virtually brand new) or just get something else? Thanks for any suggestions in advance.

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.
