Question about Philips Magnavox MWR20V6 DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

VHS Tapes playing too fast / Machine switches of after 30 min

Hi there,
we have a Magnavox MWR20V6.

Please help us with the following problems:

- The machine switches off after ca. 30 - 45 min. and we can not switch it on again. It takes a few hours, sometimes more than 24 to get in running again.

- The VHS Tapes are playing much to fast. Its all in black&white, the actors look like they would have 8 heads etc. and the sound and voices are very high. (Like Smurfs-cartoons) :)

We really hope you can solve this problems for us.
Thank you
Eva & Mik

    they worked fine before, but not on this machine. I tried SP and LP tapes, but had the same problem with both types.

    I actually bought this machine to record all my tapes onto DVD - and that's the only thing (apart from switching off on it's own) not working. :(

These same tapes that you are trying to play, have they played properly in the past? Also, are the tapes in SP or LP format?

Region free code for Philips Magnavox MWR20V6

Not possible on this product. You need to have a special software hack to get that type of region free operation. The web lists a website in england that says they can do it. I cannot verify this claim. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

I have been using my machine with no problems, until recently. The machine will not stay on more than a few minutes when I try to use it, either watch a tape or tape a show. It starts, then just shuts down. When the machine is turned back on it ejects the tape????
Can you help, please.
