Question about Philips Magnavox MWR20V6 DVD Recorder/VCR

2 Answers

Both VCR and DVD lights are illuminated but neither works

First my DVD would not eject, so I removed the cover to get it out. Now, both DVD and VCR lights are illuminated when the unit is powered on, but neither will allow me to load a tape or DVD. I unplugged the unit for days and plugged back in - problem persists. Any ideas?

    not sure what to check or how to check it. My main concern is that both DVD and VHS lights are illuminated, which indicates (to me) that neither is being selected, and neither responds to remote or manual input.

    The problem hasn't been fixed, but I received a message saying "GREAT, Thanks for using our premium assistance plan"!!!!

    Not fixed...I clicked the "Accept" button before knowing that once I did...my "Premium" service is expired...thanks for nothing!

    There is NO green light flashing...both the VCR and DVD lights are lit solid...like it's trying to have them both operating at the same time, but there is NO media installed in either, and the unit doesn't respond to any input via remote or front panel. It is a Magnavox MWR20V6 DVD Recorder / VCR Combo

    it is either jammed or somesort of magnetic thing is keeping it from
    ejecting..

    the green light flashing is meaning that it is trying to open
    but it can't and it keeps try to eject.

    below the place where the dvd rotates is the spindle motor..

    when it doesnt function well the lens thinks that there is a dvd/cd inside

    so there is a conflict between the reader and the tray motor...

    so it wont open

    sorry for the late reply...

XBV243 DVD Player / VCR Combo: my Zen XBV243 DVD/VCR combo player won't eject the...


If it is the same problem as mine, the drive belt is old and worn and is slipping- therefor the tray will not open. I found this out after I removed the metal cover, and the screws holding the DVD assembly to reveal the motor, pulleys, and drive belt. Now the real problem is to find a replacement belt. Possibly a o-ring the proper size may work, as they are quite easy to find. The original belt has a square cross section, whereas an o-ring has a round cross section, but should work well enough.

DVD player will do nothing


Ok so I took the cover off to see if I could figure out the problem. Don't have a complete solution, but I did get somewhere. There is a silver cylindrical motor attached to the eject mechanism wheels on the VCR side. When I unplugged the tape from the back of the little motor, the progressive light goes out and the sound from the motor stops. When I manually turn the wheel/arm attached to the motor, the other wheels/gears turn and I can manually eject the tape. Also when I get to a certain point, my progressive light starts flashing like yours was. Anyway it all seems to be related to the little motor. I figure if you replace that, it would work. At least that is what I might try, I'll keep you posted.

Put a tape in and eject it. It will then work. Just had this problem. CST IN means the VCR thinks it has a tape in. Trust me... Very fixable.

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.

Disc Tray Will Not Eject


Just next to the eject button on the actual recorder there should be a tiny pinhole.  If you use a small paperclip and insert it, then push, you should be able to manually eject the DVD.  Hope this helps!

Panasonic PV-D4743S combo DVD/VCR player won't eject DVD


This unit has seperate power supplies for the DVD and VCR side and the DVD side supply seems prone to failure. I have not isolated the cause, but can tell you this will require a component level repair. Unless you are a tech you may as well buy a new unit.
