Re: vidio problem on tv

Well... It depends on how you have your VCR connected. If its Coxial [a fat black cable at the back which has only one connection] then tune it in the preset 0 or something. It it has 2 or 3 different couloured cables, then press TV/AV or TV/Video or something similar on the remote or TV face.

Dvd/vcr recorder magnavox model mwr20v6, i got probelm hooking up my dvd/vcr recorder to my cable converterbox an tv , because i broke the antenne/ out socket on the back of the unit, how can i get it to...

Hi,If I understood correctly you broke antenna out socket of Cable box..ok no problem,your TV and cable box should have other jacs/socket for this connection as well..
Take the A/V output of your cable box into TV possibly with RCA cables..than you can select the channel thru Cable box on TV ..(AV mode needs to be selected on TV )

** in order to listen and watch your
magnavox DVD 's "2xRCA audio" and "1x RCA Video" cables "OUT" should go to Tv or Cable box "IN" connections separately ..("IN" goes to "OUT" of other ..pls remember,Always reverse connected ) (audio will come thru Receiver and TV.)

Since you successfully connected your Receiver to play video on TV (one way only ) ,here is the second reverse action if you wish to listen or RECORD a program on your TV on
** you need to connect "Audio Output " as can either be : RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or "SCART "connector " of your TV or Cable box .( every TV -cable box has different type of Audio out jacks )
** to "iRCA nput or "Optic Cable input"
of your
magnavox (whichever you want ,based on the necessary cables on your hand )

There you go..Tv/Cable box video and sound are both on the
magnavox for recording..

Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.

I only have cable tv. when i connect my magna avox

This unit does not have a tuner to receive TV broadcasting. If you have the owners manual on page 26 it explains this. If you do not have the manual here is a link to one.

Easiest way to connect is with a scart connector from VCR to TV, then just select AV1 from TV (this will depend on what type if TV you have). If you dont have scart, put your aerial into the rear input of VCR, take supplied flylead & connect that from rear output of VCR & connect other end into TVs aerial socket. Insert a pre-recorded tape, press play on VCR & then on TV select channel 0 & tune your TV until the play back picture appears, then store this on TV tuning settings.

VCR will not turn on.

Remove top cover of the VCR. Then look near the back where the plug-in and power supply is. There should be a little glass fuse. You should keep that fuse and take it to the store and replace it with same exact one. If your VCR can be self-repaired, than this is the only thing you can try.

Problem with philips magnavox vcr


Most Philips/Magnavox VCR uses "PL" to indicate that the unit is on Parental Lock. Push and hold the power button on the remote control and wait for the unit to power up. This should be within 7 seconds.

Additionally, most (but not all) Philips/Magnavox VCRs are sub-contracted to Funai. Pls try here for Funai downloads of user's manual.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
