Apower surge can travel quicker than a surge protector can activate. And a replacement fuse may not fix your DVD. On one occasion I did replace a fuse in one of these after a power surge and the DVD/VCR did comeback to life. You may try...but the odds are against you and you will have to purchase a new one!
Brown outs can damage the power control board of a running product. It's likely that while the other devices that all were affected by the brown out made it through such a condition, your DVR probably did not. The good news is, there is typically a fuse that can be changed which may have blown. If you open the unit up, check the fuse first. If it looks okay, there is a set of capacitors (looks like tiny round cans, usually blue or black) If there is what looks like a weird papery appearance around the can(s), or the top of the cans are bulged or cracked, the capacitor(s) need to be replaced.
There are work arounds... but the reason is when its burnt and finialized its written in .vob format which is dvd mpeg2 format. majority of windows media player codecs wont pick it up. divx does. its just the format its burnt in and you cant change obviously. you can just try like nero showtime which always works or ending up ripping the disc on the computier but that might defeat your purpost of burning them in the first place. Its not the dvd recorder i may add, its just the format. by the way its a magnavox unit made by funai... www.funai-corp.com/support and trust me your not going to get much out of their. your better off going into forums finding more high depth problems if you really want this to work for firends and families and such.
MAGNAVOX DVD RECORDER MODEL # MWR10D6: Is a piece of junk. Yet another worthless waste material and rescources. In other words they or someone else could have taken the materials and energy used to assymble this thing and used it for some other appliance or device that would actually work. This thing is so worthless that it was environmentally irresponsible for the manufactures to even make it. Now all it's good for is filling landfills.
My suggestion is to do as I am right now and go onto any and every forum, or message board you know about and warn as many people as you can away from this piece of junk and the SCAM that is being perpatrated by Magnavox and whoever else helped them cook up this scam.
I've even made space for a photo of it and description of how sorry it works on both my myspace.com and facebook.com pages.
Unplug it for about 30 minutes then plug it back in and try. If it starts giving you less and less might be the power board in the machine going out. Call the support line that is located in the front of the unit.
