Junk it. It's identical to Funai WV20V6. I can't remember exactly what is causing the shutdown. But, I do remember that it says it can't be fixed. Read other posts here at Fixya.

My Magnavox MWR20V6 DVD VCR Combo shuts down, after 5-10 seconds, following start-up (on/standby button). I saw "E1(rear)," on the TV screen, just before it shut down the last time. I suspect...


Before anything, I would attempt to see what the E1 code signifies. But usually when those things just shut themselves down it is because of a serious problem in the power supply. I think it is time to go shopping.

VCR runs 10-15 sec. shuts off.


most vcr decks are clones of other decks .find out what deck is fitted in that model ...might find that a easier way to trace a service manual. check R.S components parts ..i'm sure they have a section on vcr decks and a large parts and service sections with pictures to help you identify your deck. ps if you have never done this sort of thing before i would think hard on whats involved it can be very time consuming and awkward to do....deck timing can be a real pain to get right. i would start with the easy things to change first like the pinch roller.anyway hope this helps a bit ..farr64

My solution was to call my warranty company. I'm sending it in and getting my money back. They said it would cost more to fix it than I paid for it.

Magnovox MWR20V6 will not begin recording when it should.


This is more a work-around than a solution, as the unit is failing to function normally; however, having the identical problem I observed that the unit is failing to power on at 2:00 minutes before beginning recording, a necessary step to record to DVD.

My work-around is the following:

1) Set up the timer, inputting necessary date, time, etc. as normal. With the unit still powered on, start the timed recording mode by pressing timer set, as normal. You will see the red clock icon and the DVD logo iluminate on the VFD.

2) Press the Standby-On power button. This will power the unit on in VCR mode. You should at this time be unable to switch from VCR to DVD mode since the DVD is still in timer mode. LEAVE THE UNIT POWERED ON in this manner. The timer will function and the DVD will record normally.

I have no clue why my unit suddenly forgot how to power up on its own in order to record to DVD. If anyone has an answer for that one please post!

I can't play any VCR tapes or DVD's in my Magnavox. Shows E1


It may be a timer setting after a power problem. On page 90 of the manual there are setups for the timers My VCR won't do things without the time set either. The manual may be downloaded here.

http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/MWR20V6.pdf

Basically get into the setups and set the time and hit enter. I hope this works.
