Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Mine is a combination video cassette and dvd player. The video player seems to work okay. When I put a dvd or cd into the dvd player, the welcome screen appears and the word reading appears in a box at the top. After several minutes another box replaces "reading." This box says "incorrect disc." I have tried dvd and cd's that I have used recently so I know the machine has read them, but it suggests that they are "incorrect."

You need to clean the laser/eye of the unit. To do this take a Q-Tip and dampen it(do not soak) with rubbing alcohol, and spin it onb the laser head. You'll need to remove the unit's cabinet and the look towards the center part of where the disk rides/spins and you'll see a small lens, this is on a rail of micro polished metal, I point this out because, it's a good idea to clean the rail also. Very important...2 things, again do not soak the lens, you only need enough to remove the debris that has built up on the lens, and the other make sure the unit is unplugged while perfoming this task. This will solve your problems. If you've been informed that a DVD/CD lens cleaner is available, tell them that you know a far more efficient method, Thanks, Dana

How can I record a music cassette to a music disc on my Magnavox DVD recorder/ VHS --Model # ZV427MG9


You can't burn a CD-A with the ZV427MG9. The unit will not burn to a CD to play in a CD player.

You may be able to record the audio to a DVD with no video source. Connect your cassette player to the Line In audio ports (L/R) at either the back or front of the unit. Depending on your cassette player, you may need a 3.5 mm M to RCA F/F adapter to connect the RCA audio cable to the cassette player's headphone jack. Do not connect a cable to the video input of the composite input unless you have a video on a camera or something to play back. This means that the recorded video may say "No Signal" or will be black or static. (Note: this may not work with this signal issue.)

Set the unit to record to DVD on L1 or L2, as needed, by pressing Source on your remote. Advance the cassette to where you want to record. Press Rec on the DVD unit and then press Play on your cassette player. If you want to identify tracks, Stop the recording and play back and then press Rec and Play again. You are at risk of having issues with the volume during the recording. Clipping of overly-loud sounds and distortion is possible.

When done, finalize the disc, if desired, to play the disc on other DVD players.

If you want to make an audio CD, you would be better off using a computer and connecting the cassette player to the Line In jack of the computer. You do have to make some adjustments to avoid recording the default Microphone input. Use a program like Audacity or any other audio editing program. Record the signal and divide it into tracks, if needed. Now you can filter out any distortion as well. Then save as a WAV file. Use a different program to burn the WAV files to a CD-A. (This must be burned as a mastered disc; my attempts that worked on an older CD player failed if there were gaps between the tracks. Lots of programs will do this; Roxio Creator is one option.)

The manual for the ZV427MG9 is available here: http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/z/zv427mg9_f7/zv427mg9_f7_dfu_aen.pdf .

I hope this helps.

To protect the LED assembly when a Pioneer CD cassette player is shipped should the cassette be installed in the player or shipped external to the player?


I think you're referring to a combination CD/cassette player. Whatever, media should be removed from any CD or cassette transport before power off.

Using remote to play video DVD


You need to bypass your A/V tuner for your video connections (if possible). Plug your video directly into the TV and audio into the tuner. This will also give you a cleaner signal/picture as it does not have to processed by your tuner BEFORE it goes to your tv. Think of it as cutting out the middle man. Your tuner is best left for powering your speaker and not controlling your video despite all of the available connections in the back of it.

I would also get rid of your VHS and cassette players as they are dead technology. Clean up your system and remove the clutter. This will lessen your chance of getting interference. Good luck!!

Dvd not ejecting


which bise system do you have ?

is it a lifetstyle system with a 6 disk cd changer ?


if so .

the disk being a dvd and being label down is in significant, the real proble is that the cassettte is mechanislly jammed with the disk as a wedge between it and the cd player part.

dissasembly of head unit may be required if you cant jam something into the cassette unit and forceably remove it. okay your disk may be scratched and the cassette may even be damaged, you could even try driving a screw into the cassette on the left hand most side to give you a bit of something to lever with. but that is your only option. a new cassette will probably be required. and dissasembly is likely especially if it feels like forcebaly removing the cassette will leave bits of broken cd player or dvd disk inside the head unit.

i should point out that if it is not a cd 20 model with a 6 disk cd cassette, do not attempt to do as i have mentioned above.

in either event i can't warranty your actions as a result of my suggestion. but i can safely assure you that a bose shop will definately get it fixed for you, and you can probably contact bose direct yourself who will definitley fix it for you. for how much howevr i am not sure.
you could alsway decide to scrpa the head unit and invest in a second hand one sourced on the internet.

sorry for your troubles, but i know how you feel when my kids insert fist fulls of coins into my car cd player. !!!!
