Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player

Open Question

Magnavox mwd 2206

When I put the vcr tape i or the dvd, it will play for a minute or so and then eject will appear on the screen and the unit shuts off. I have tried unplugging it and nothing has changed. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks, Bill.

I have a Magnavox dvd player/ vhs MWD 2206. It does not switch between dvd and vhs play modes. It stays on the dvd screen no matter what I do. The light goes on to indicate which is supposed to be in use...

Software issue since unit is not recognizing the tape. Try a hard reset and see if that clears up the cobwebs. U might also check to see if there is something in the vhs tape path that sends a signal to the main board for switchover.

The VCR accepts the tape and starts to play; then stops and shuts off; when you turn the power back on the tape ejects

You have a transport problem, the mechanism the plays, FF or rewinds is not working.

Someone is going to have to open and look at the unit---as simple as a belt off or broken to the idler (rubber or geared) that doe the actual work, finding a shop that will work on a VCR unit is getting hard as most of the current techs have never seen this type of unit.

What I used to do when I opened one was have a old cassette with the tape removed! but the reels inside of it still there--tape off both sides of the cassette where it opens so the sensors on either side do not try to stop the unit from allowing this.

This way with the unit open and the dummy cassette in you can see thru its top to see if the reels are moving or not and not have the tape get in the way.

Magnavox ZV427MG9 DVD Recorder VCR Combo plays vcr for about 5 second then stops and shut off, when turned back on it ejects the tape.

This combo has a problem with the vcr unit which take up wheel will stop working and spill the tape. the unit will stop and eject the tape. You have to replace the whole vcr assembly.

Magnavox vcr/dvr. insert vc tape, machine loads and plays tape for about three seconds then stops and ejects tape. tape will not stay playing. thanks, larry

Mine does the same.It's basically junk.A new VCR/DVD player goes for around $80.If you were to call to ask about getting your VCR repaired,they would tell you that it is FAR cheaper to simply purchase a new one.Same Magnavox I bet almost too.model # for mine is MWD 2206.Labor alone is easily at least $60/hour and it would take that just to disassemble and reassemble the VCR section just to get at the problem.Greg

Magnavox zv450mw8 Walmart VCR/DVD recorder. shuts off

on vcr's if the tape is hard to turn the tape will sense this and reject the tape. Try to get a tape that you can feel turn free eaiser. I would rewind it to the middle of the tape so each side is equal and it would make the tape run easier. If it runs ok then the unit is bad and is too sensitve to the pull on the tape. This is all designed in the electronics and there is not much you can do about it then get return it if you can.

Magnavox mwd 2206 dvd vcr player....shuts off with eject word across screen.

On a unit I checked with this same symptom, removing the top cover allows the unit to stay on and operate normally. There is some sort of sensor at the left middle of the chassis, which, when unblocked by any opaque object, allows the unit to remain on. A temporary fix (not advisable) would be to replace the top cover with a piece of clear plastic or taut saran wrap (no vent holes needed). It's unclear exactly where/what that sensor is from a cursory test. This is a work in progress on someone else's machine that I lack full access to.
