Fyi, you can use an any LED from a remote control to fix this, if it has about a 1V drop across it. To replace this part, unsolder it from the bottom and remove the optical prism on the deck, pull it out thru the hole with a tweezers. The flat side goes towards the supply side.

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.

Dvd player has video & audio. Vhs player has audio only, no video, Need to know what to do?


Many DVD/VHS Combos have separate outputs for both. If you are using the Component or HDMI, then you also need to use one of the Composite (yellow) or Coaxial outputs separately for the VHS. You will be using 2 inputs on the TV, so remember to switch to the correct one.

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 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.

HELP! I can't figure out how to Connect my Sylvania DVD/VCR Combo to my older TV


Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder. You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.
