Remove and replace the graphite grease from the laser transport worm gear assembly (use the correct Technics stuff), replace the worm gear drive belt, and ensure that the tension spring on the C-shaped plastic piece that rides the gear is OK

good day,

just make sure that the colors are matched with the jock and the socket in your dvd player and your tv. just make sure that you unplug first your dvd player and tv while attaching the wires to avoid accidents.

just follow the color coding of the wires and cables and you wont go wrong. just plug in the your tv and dvd player to the electric socket and in no time you will be watching your favorite movie.

for the player, just press the open(eject) button to insert your dvd and normally it will automatically play. just hit rewind (<<) for playback and forward (>>) to skip some scenes. use the |<< button to go back to a previous section and the >>| to skip to the nest section. use the || to pause and the button with the square symbol to stop.

i hope this would help.

My recorded DVDs skip on all DVD players

MAGNAVOX DVD RECORDER MODEL # MWR10D6: Is a piece of junk. Yet another worthless waste material and rescources. In other words they or someone else could have taken the materials and energy used to assymble this thing and used it for some other appliance or device that would actually work. This thing is so worthless that it was environmentally irresponsible for the manufactures to even make it. Now all it's good for is filling landfills.

My suggestion is to do as I am right now and go onto any and every forum, or message board you know about and warn as many people as you can away from this piece of junk and the SCAM that is being perpatrated by Magnavox and whoever else helped them cook up this scam.

I've even made space for a photo of it and description of how sorry it works on both my and pages.

DVD must be overheating

General failure when units warm / hot in high humidity environments. Units operate normally once cold, failure only occurs occasionally then seems OK but when warm fails again
Many PCB's/components have contamination which will manifest themselves in warm and humid environments, so once unit is warm then electrical failure occurs. Clean circuit first in solvent/water combination and retest unit. Failure should dissapear. If corrosion found on joints then reheat with soldering iron which you may see joints bubble then clean PCB thoroughly. Best to soak in cleaner then wipe around with lint free wipe especially around powered components. NOTE contamination is typically hygroscopic and will attract moisture if particularly bad will electromigrate if not too bad then poor SIR Surface Insulation Resistance (occasional unexplained failure) Could go on for long time but this is only the start! Does this sound familiar to anybody ??
