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.

I need the codes for a magnavox tv. dvd combo.


Hello
Codes for Philips Magnavox TV/DVD combo are: 0456 [0189 0458]
Where the code is listed as [**** ****]the first is for the TV and the second is for the DVD. Otherwise just the one code operates both the TV and the DVD.
Code for Magnavox TV/DVD combo is: 0456
Direct Code Entry
  1. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  2. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  3. Enter the 4 digit code from the code tables. Note: after a valid code entry, the red indicator turns off. For an invalid code, the red indicator flashes.
  4. With your device on, press CHANNEL UP. If the device responds, no further programming is required. Note: If some buttons do not operate your device, try one of the other codes for your brand.
Ok. Thanks for using Fixya.

T.V. shuts off when I try to play a DVD in the built-in player


Try putting in a VCR tape let it load and hit stop. If the set stays on it's the VCR deck causing the problem. It will be either be bad sensors or LED or possibly the mode switch. Let me know if this helps.

My tv shuts off


I picked one up in the trash 2004 model 27MDTR20/17. I turn it on and it shuts off. I opened the back and pulled the DVD/VHS board out. I removed a metal cover on the VHS housing (three screws). There was a broken clear plastic rod and one of the gear stop plastic cords (on the left side) was ripped where it attached to the front metal bracket through a hole in the plastic tab. The plastic chord has a piece of white felt like material attached to it. I epoxied the plastic rod back and put a piece of tape over the broken plastic end of the cord. The tape was folded over the edge of the plastic and then wrapped back on itself. I trimmed the outline with a scissor and poked a new hole in the end where the original hole was under the tape. I attached the chord back to the metal bracket. The problem was still there, the power would go off after a few seconds and the VHS gear train would make a slight motion like it was getting stuck. I then removed the mounting screws on the VHS housing and lifted it off the board slightly (ther are 2 screws that need to be removed from the far side also). There is a small gear under the right side of the board that was not aligned with another gear. The alignment is between a pin on one gear and a hole on the other. After I aligned them I reassembled the unit. The power stays on now only if I leave a tape in it but the DVD and VHS seem to work. My problem now is that I can only select AUX and channel 2! On well thats my next battle. Good luck.

Magnavox combo vcr dvd


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
