Question about Insignia IS-DVD1001 DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

Sound cuts out

While playing a dvd, the sound will stop for a few seconds and then start up again. I made sure all speakers were hooked up right and working. No problem when using the am/fm. Haven't tried vcr yet. A home-recorded dvd did not have a problem.

Re: sound cuts out

This sounds like a lens pickup problem try using a lens cleaning disk. The recording beam is a higher intensity beam and it may funcion properly.

H02 Error after inserting a dvd disk

The trouble started with an error to close and open the DVD drawer. It indicated "close" when the drawer was open, or "no disc" when the DVD was inside, and I had to try many times before I get the right response and go on with the procedures.
But then it also started playing just a few MP3 tracks and stopping to work, showing again the inserted DVD data. Later H02, and then H07 and STOP. It doesn't even start playing stuffs, movies or MP3 tracks!

I have a magnzvox MPDD845 8.5" TFT Monitor Portable DVD Player

The sound you are hearing is the lens attempting to focus. Since it seems to recover, this could be an alignment problem or just a connection problem. Without seeing the waveforms of the tracking circuit, I can not say for sure. If this is a new unit, return it for warranty exchange or repair.

DVD stopped playing all DVDs

Reset you player by doing the following:
With the player on, hooked properly to your television, and on the correct station:
Open the tray
Close the tray (with no DVD inserted)
Hold the stop button down for a full 5 seconds
The CyberHome screen should appear. You should be able to play your dvd's now.

Magnavox DVD/VCR player stuck in progressive scan mode

Right, mine was stuck for a couple of weeks and i tried lots of different things. What worked for me was plugging it out and in again. Press the power switch and then just before the tv switches from normal mode to dvd recorder press the eject button. However, I pressed it a few time so not exactly sure which one worked.
The burned DVD is now in a thousand pieces at the bottom of my bin!
Good Luck!

Sound cutting out after 40 to 60 minutes of playing a DVD

Have you tryed the cleaning of the lens first?? I would for sure do that. If that dosent work i would connect the unit to another amp and see if it still cuts out too. If it does it could have a problem with the tracking or focus gain/offwet alighnment. These are not consumer alighnments, as you need a scope and the know how to hook up the player to the scope and monitor the rf waveform along with test disc. Other then cleaning the unit theres not alot we as consumers can do. Good luck
