Re: No power on magnavox dvd recorder model CMWR10d6

The capacitor blew. You need to get that replaced. That little capacitor stores that electrice charge to power your unit on and timer programmings etc. Either get that fixed by yourself or call support line.

Remote for mwr10d6 dvd available?

The remote is the Magnavox NA471UD . Amazon has the original remote from Funai here: . Amazon also has a third-party replacement remote here: . also has replacement remotes. The OEM version is here: . The third-party version is . Any universal remote that was programmed 6 months or more after the DVD recorder was released will probably have a code that activates most of the features on the unit.

I hope this helps.

Recording from a vhs cassette...

This dvd/vcr unit is having a problem with component failure. It is probably in the main power supply section, since the unit shuts down. This can happen in these products due to the qulaity of component use in the product runs. The components usually have 5% to 10% failure rate. Which is usually taken care of by the product warranty. Unfornately this is a common problem with big manufactuers and large production runs. You need to have the unit tested and serviced at a service center. The service center will have all the service information to repair you unit. The Magnavox Customer support telephone is 1-800-605-8453. Tell them the model number of you unit and about the problem with the unit shutting down during use. They will be able to tell how to your unit serviced. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

I bought a Magnavox 810H 160GB HDD/DVD recorder. It's a decent machine which worked perfectly for a few months, but now I can't get it to record to DVD. The HDD recording and playback functions work fine,...

Try switching it over to DVD . Because you may still have it on HDD when you put the disc in it may be that the unit is still thinking you are on HDD and don't recognise it as a disc just the hard drive

Magnovox MWR20V6 will not begin recording when it should.

This is more a work-around than a solution, as the unit is failing to function normally; however, having the identical problem I observed that the unit is failing to power on at 2:00 minutes before beginning recording, a necessary step to record to DVD.

My work-around is the following:

1) Set up the timer, inputting necessary date, time, etc. as normal. With the unit still powered on, start the timed recording mode by pressing timer set, as normal. You will see the red clock icon and the DVD logo iluminate on the VFD.

2) Press the Standby-On power button. This will power the unit on in VCR mode. You should at this time be unable to switch from VCR to DVD mode since the DVD is still in timer mode. LEAVE THE UNIT POWERED ON in this manner. The timer will function and the DVD will record normally.

I have no clue why my unit suddenly forgot how to power up on its own in order to record to DVD. If anyone has an answer for that one please post!

Tray will not open

My ILO was doing the same thing, then it stopped doing it. It then suddenly would not recognize any media. I opened up the case and found it is using a dvd lite-on recorder. I had this old pc laying around with a gigabyte dvd recorder in it. For a test, I unplugged the lite-on and plugged in the gigabyte recorder. On power up, it seemed to work fine. After recording 3 DVD's I modified the case to accept the hew recorder. ** problems since, its not pretty, but it was easy to get the unit functional again.
