SOURCE: VCR tape playback not good

Check your "tracking" If the tape played fine in the old machine, then tracking is the answer, provided that the new machine records good.

SOURCE: I can't play any VCR tapes or DVD's in my Magnavox. Shows E1

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.

You will need a technical person to open the unit. This problem can be as simple as a dirty sensor, or bad tape drive parts, or burned out computer chip.

SOURCE: my Magnavox vcr/dvd- dv220mw9 takes the tape then ejects it.

I returned it to Wal-Mart and got another one that I hope acts better. Perhaps if more of our electronic products were made in the U.S., Germany or Japan they'd be more dependable.

Try better quality VHS tapes or 6-hour tapes instead of 8-hour ones. I had this problem myself when I used 8 hour tapes, but haven't had any problems with the 6-hour ones.

Magnavox tv/dvd/vcr combo model mwc24t5b i put a tape in the vcr hit play and the tv shuts off. everything else work fine on the tv.


Usually when that happened for me, it meant that one of my small children had also put a foreign object in the slot where the VHS tape goes. Any type of obstruction will cause the VCR to jam and force the television to shut off.

Magnavox TV/DVD/VCR combo keeps turning off


So after calling a tv repair guy and listening to him tell me about how it is probably something to do with the transistor and it will cost me about 150 dollars to fix ( which I could buy a new tv for that price since it is only a 19 inch) I decided to look online at this issue of turning off after 5-10 seconds. I read about it being an issue with the VCR sensor, so I don't know about it being some LED that you have to replace because I just messed around with a VHS and moving the little white bar thingy on the right just inside the door for the VHS around a bit, and Voila it started working right again. I think maybe my son tripped something by sticking things in there and whatever I touched fixed it. So my advice is to just stick a VHS in and take it back out a few times and play with a few things inside and to the right. It didn't take long for it to work for me.

No color and sporatic play on VCR mode, with zv420mw8


If this problem happened within a few seconds, you probably have dirty heads. If It happened slowly you could have an alignment problem. Both of these problems should be repair professionally.

Magnavox zv450mw8 Walmart VCR/DVD recorder. shuts off


on vcr's if the tape is hard to turn the tape will sense this and reject the tape. Try to get a tape that you can feel turn free eaiser. I would rewind it to the middle of the tape so each side is equal and it would make the tape run easier. If it runs ok then the unit is bad and is too sensitve to the pull on the tape. This is all designed in the electronics and there is not much you can do about it then get return it if you can.

Has this just started happening? What did you do just before this happened? You need to supply much more information, we are not mind readers! What's the make and model, this ain't a generic problem!

Auto turn off


You most likely have a bad LED sensor in your video tape deck. When the LED fails, the VCR thinks it has a tape in it and trys to load it. When this happens , the deck jams and shuts the whole system down. Stargazer
