    Opened my Magnavox DVD/VCR--looks so foreign to me! Could anyone tell me where the fuses are? I want to see if this may be the problem with mine.

    When i push the power button , the light comes on for a few seconds then shuts off . The remote will not power it on at all . Does the clock have to be set before anything works ? That's the only area in which there seems to be power on ! Errrrrrrrrrrrrr !!!!!!

    My Magnavox MWR30V6 will power on either manually or by remote for a split second (at least the power light comes on and the display lights up) but then it immediately turns itself back off. It was working fine last night recording a progam on DVD. My son stopped the recording manually and left the machine on. This morning it was still on, but when I turned on the TV I had no picture. I turned off the Recorder power to see if that would make a difference, and the TV picture came back. However, since then I have not been able to get the Recorder to power on and stay on. I removed the cover and managed to manually eject both the VHS tape and the DVD that were in the machine. The only fuse I see is on the inside back, but it doesn't appear to be blown. It cost me $150 less than a year ago. If there's any way to fix it, I'd sure like to know. Thanks!

1. Check that the AC outlet is working.
2. Check that the AC power cord is ok with no damage.
3. Unplug the unit, remove the cover and check for a blown fuse.
If blown, replace with a value that is the EXACT value as the original.
4. If the fuse blows again or the unit is still dead, you most likely have a problem in the power supply section.

In that case, you'll need to take it to be serviced.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good Luck!

How do you hook up cords to cable box & television


WELL IT SEEMS U HAVE TWO PROBLEMS :
1ST YOUR rF SIGNAL IS NOT GETTING THRU , THIS IS A ROUND CABLE WITH A SCREW ON END TO IT , THIS ONE MUST 1ST COME INTO YOUR HOME AND GO TO CABLE BOX , THEN LEAVE OUT OF CABLE BOX AND ENTER VCR THEN LEAVE OUT OF VCR AND GO TO RF INPUT OF TV ( HAS TO BE HOOKED THIS WAY WONT WORK ANY OTHER WAY) SET OUTPUT OF VCR TO CHANEL 3 SET OUTPUT OF CABLE BOX TO CHANNEL 3 SET TUNER OF VCR TO CHANEL 3 , AND LAST SET INPUT OF TV TO rf CABLE ,CHANEL 3 , NOW YOU CHANGE CHANELS ON CABLE BOX only
2ND YOUR DVD PLAYER HAS NO RF OUTPUT SO YOU NEED TO CONNECT BY ONE OF THESE MEANS (HDMI, RGB, COMPOSITE) ALL THESE REQUIRE A DIFFERENT CABLE YOU DECIDE , THERE HOOK UP IS PRETTY MUCH ONE WAY SO I WONT ELABORATE ON EACH METHOD , BUT TV NEEDS TO BE SET TO CORESPONDING INPUT TYPE YOU DECIDED ON

We just purchased a Samsung TV, and have been using a RCA DVD/VCR player/recorder, Model#: DRC8295N, Serial#: XXXXXXXXX We have Direct TV and before the new tv was using one of their DVR player/recorders....


The problem with your DVD/VCR is that when you hooked up your new TV you probably removed the power cord for the DVD/VCR during installing and running your new wires and such.

Your DVD/VCR has known problems in the power supply. This is very common. When unplugged, this allowed the capacitors to discharge and now wont work at all. It is very possible that if you left your DVD/VCR plugged into the AC wall socket it might begin to work after a couple of days. I wouldn't plan on it though.

Your DVD/VCR will need power supply repairs.The cost should be around $100 dollars.
if you would like one of our stores to repair this for you we would be happy.

You can send us the unit and we can repair this for you and return in about a week.

Wont dub from vcr to dvd


Hello,

Saw your request this morning.

Take note, sometimes our email alert system to we experts does not notifiy us about requests or questions you may pose later regarding this post of yours.

What patch cables, if any are you using now for audio? If there are ports on the back for audio out and audio in for DVD? Currently, are you using the internal circuitry to dub over to DVD from VCR?

Regards,
Worldvet
