Question about Audiovox VE1020 10.2 in. TV/DVD Combo
DVD - VCR magnavox player... model # mwd 2206...when vhs is inserted it will begin to play the tv but than shuts off....while the words eject c is across screen...put it on dvd player it will also shutoff...But if you put vhs tape in at the same time turn on dvd you can watch dvd...but still will not play the vhs....help!
I have the same unit (Magnavox DVD/VCR MWD 2206). If the top cover was removed, the DVD player would work fine. But if the clear plastic sensor post on the VCR side is covered, the unit would shut off. I removed the screw holding the sensor post in place and cleaned the led light under it using a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol on it. Then I screwed the clear plastic sensor back in place and cleaned it the same way. The unit now works great!

On a unit I checked with this same symptom, removing the top cover allows the unit to stay on and operate normally. There is some sort of sensor at the left middle of the chassis, which, when unblocked by any opaque object, allows the unit to remain on. A temporary fix (not advisable) would be to replace the top cover with a piece of clear plastic or taut saran wrap (no vent holes needed). It's unclear exactly where/what that sensor is from a cursory test. This is a work in progress on someone else's machine that I lack full access to.
