Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player

1 Answer

Dvd door won't open

I have a Magnavox MWD2206 vcr/dvd combo unit. All of the sudden the dvd door won't open. It doesn't matter if you try on the unit itself or the remote. Nothing. And if you turn it to dvd (rather than vcr), after about 15 seconds it goes back to vcr.

    I have the same problem. It used to work fine until I watched a few VHS tapes which worked great. Now I can not get it to stay on DVD or get door to open. What is up?

  • gopackgo Apr 27, 2008

    I unplugged the unit for about 15 seconds and plugged it back in. Works fine now

GO VIDEO model 1030....VCR works fine...DVD..nothing happens...door won't even open?


Combo units have this essential flaw--if one half fails you are usually done especially if the DVD side fails.

If Door does not open either a disc is jammed inside the mechanism or the mechanism is out of alignment or damaged.

Good argument against buying these units--DVD individual parts are rarely sold--only (if available) would be the entire DVD unit itself--not cost effective to repair.

DVD players are now real cheap (see some for as little as $20) so if not a simple jammed disc or something like that buy a DVD player.

DVD won't eject from magnavox MWD2206


Do u see a small hole in the front plate of the dvd player?

if you do ur in luck, unravel a large paper clip to make it straight, then very slowly push it straight into the hole until you see the dvd open.

If no hole then u will have to open the case while it is unplugged.

Magnavox vcr/dvd combo--dvd's play about 1/3 of the way then quit


sounds like bad pick-up unit (optical eye). these will heat up and reduce the fm envelope signal causing the optical eye to not read disc info. not worth repair. (it may could use cleaning, but usually a dirty eye will effect the movies from the beginning not after warm-up. mch

Need remote control code


I found that on the back of the 2205 it said that the unit was made by Funai. I looked in the Innovage book and found that the codes for Funai DVD are 231 and 233. 233 worked on mine. Good luck.
