Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player

1 Answer

DVD does not play on other players or computer

I just recorded a DVD (dub from VHS to DVD) The DVD plays fine on the magnavox that made it, but in my other DVD player and my laptop will not play it. They just keep trying to 'load' the DVD. DVDs made in my laptop play fine in the Magnovox. A DVD made in another dubbing machine plays fine on my computer and in this Magnovox. Is this normal or is something wrong.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your description indicates that the last step in the DVD recording has not been performed on these discs that were recorded on the Magnavox. This would be "finalize" or instruct the Magnavox that no other files would be written/recorded on the current disc. Thereafter, the Magnavox would complete the DVD disc making it playable in any other player. Normally, finalization would take a bit of time to complete.

Pls post back how things turned up. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Power off when inserting vhs tape


I had this problem when copying an old family vhs tape. I had to unscrew the top of the magnavox to access the vhs tape. Then, I gently removed the tape and replaced the cover. After winding the tape back, I put it in the player and immediately pushed fast forward for about 3 seconds before hitting play followed by d.dubbing. I was able to make a copy of the tape and did not damage my original.

I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9. I follow all directions in manual for dubbing VHS home movies to DVD but when I try to play the DVD back there's nothing on them.What am I doing wrong?


Depending on the procedure you may be pressing the record button instead of the D.Dubbing or Dubbing button. When recording from VHS to DVD you must first, load the blank DVD and VHS home movies, then play the VHS movies, then PAUSE the VHS movie when you want to START recording... then the only the you have to do is pressing the D.Dubbing button or the Dubbing button. If your VHS tapes starts to play after the Dubbing button is pressed you have been successful in Dubbing.

I Have been trying to dubb VHS tapes to DVD''s. They record alright, but then when I go to play them on another DVD player they won't play...how do I get them to finalize? I have went through the menu and...


--- for some reason this unit does not finalize automatcally.

--- the instructions for finallizing are on page 52 of the owners manual.

--- they are as follows:

1) Press Setup

2) Scroll down, select "Disc Edit", press "OK"

3) Scroll down, select "Finalize", press "OK"

4) Select "Yes", press "OK"

Finalizing will start.

--- have done this operation several times, works Ok.
