Question about Philips Magnavox MWR20V6 DVD Recorder/VCR
When i hit the power button it stays on for a split second. both the dvd and vcr lite is on. i cannot eject my tape or remove my dvd
It sounds like the VCR ate the tape. When this happened to me (with a different brand name) I took the top off of the unit and carefully removed the cassette and DVD.
USE CAUTION WHILE DOING THIS AND DUH!!! UNPLUG THE UNIT BEFORE REMOVING THE SCREWS!!!!!!
You should unhook the unit from the tv connections and take it to the table or other flat surface. While it is unplugged!!! remove the screws and remove the top of the unit. BE CAREFUL not to remove anything else!
Simply remove the cassette and DVD. Then plug in the power and make sure it comes on properly. Open the DVD tray to make sure it works also.
Then reconnect the unit to your tv and ENJOY!!
Trust me, it works... I've done it several times. I cannot promise that your problem is an eaten tape... but it sounds like it and when this happens 90% of the time, it triggers the unit to "turn off" due to a problem. Therefore, you turn it on and the unit turns itsself right back off!
I believe this will work for you :)
