Question about Philips Magnavox MWR20V6 DVD Recorder/VCR
When I insert a VCR tape or a DVD, it shows E1, then runs for 7 seconds and shuts down. Does anyone know what E1 means?
Hi All, I realize this post may be a bit late for some but I just bought this unit myself on 12-22-08. After reading the pdf manual I downloaded from an earlier post the description of "E1" and "E2" is on page 20 and more details are on pages 35 & 36.
"E1" is the display indicator the unit is looking for a External input signal or Line Mode. "E1" External input on the rear, "E2" External input on the front. No signal present so the unit shuts off.
I suggest changing/setting your record channel or source before starting any record mode steps. Hope this helps.

It may be a timer setting after a power problem. On page 90 of the manual there are setups for the timers My VCR won't do things without the time set either. The manual may be downloaded here.
Basically get into the setups and set the time and hit enter. I hope this works.
