The reason for this problem is most likely to be mechanical obstruction near the tape driving mechanism. Hence when you try to play tape to avoid damaging the components the tv will power off. removing the obstruction(if it is not a worn out part or broken belt) should allow you to operate the VCR again but the dis-assembly won't be easy as the VCR is under the CRT and the chassis may have to be slid out to access it. I would strongly recommend that you let a qualified tv tech to handle it.

I hav a magnavox mwc24t5 triple combo. When I put a vhs tape in it spits it out. Sometimes it gets stuck in there and I have a time trying to get it out.


Please check your VHS tape's CONDITION. See if U can play it on another VHS. BE CAREFUL. sounds like a damaged VHS. You might need to take that to the shop. Better to have it checked than damage your materials. Had a similar situation with a DVD/VHS. Finally, the VHS got stuck inside. Thankfully the shop fixed it but my VHS never worked again properly.

Power off when inserting vhs tape


I had this problem when copying an old family vhs tape. I had to unscrew the top of the magnavox to access the vhs tape. Then, I gently removed the tape and replaced the cover. After winding the tape back, I put it in the player and immediately pushed fast forward for about 3 seconds before hitting play followed by d.dubbing. I was able to make a copy of the tape and did not damage my original.

Magnavox tv/dvd/vcr combo model mwc24t5b i put a tape in the vcr hit play and the tv shuts off. everything else work fine on the tv.


Usually when that happened for me, it meant that one of my small children had also put a foreign object in the slot where the VHS tape goes. Any type of obstruction will cause the VCR to jam and force the television to shut off.

Need to know if I can record from dvd to vcr on a magnavox ZV420MWB vcr/dvd combo


Magnavox ZV420MWB VCR/DVD Combo
The answer is YES YOU CAN! Take advantage of one-touch recording from videotapes to DVD+/-R and RW discs or from DVDs to VHS tapes. A variety of different inputs also let you record from compatible camcorders, external TV tuners or cable boxes.

CONSUMER ALERT: This model does not have a built-in tuner for recording TV programs and will not record copy-protected tapes or discs. For more information, call the Federal Communications Commission at 1-888-225-5322 (TTY: 1-888-835-5322) or visit the Commission's digital television website at: www.dtv.gov.

Magnavox combo vcr dvd


unfortunately the tape clamp sensor is broken or worn, or could have dust or dirt obstructing it and they don't have parts for these anymore, the tape clamp sensor is like a tiny white plastic sensor only a few millimeters in size with a red eye inside the edge of the tape carriage, and needs possible cleaning, it could be something as simple as dirt inside the mechanism over the sensors, the Tv will power down when the error occurs not much you can do if a clean or high output air blow of the components don't do the trick. sometimes dirt in the circuit can cause it to do that too, ....im surprised it lasted this long actually they were great for the bedroom, i had one ages ago they are available on ebay for about $100 or under now ...Sorry i couldn't be of more help.......you may get away with disconnecting the white feed ribbon cable that powers the tape cartridge and just use it as a DVD and Tv, that should stop the error.

Magnavox combo vcr dvd


What you're describing is common when the center LED has failed / gone out. If you're really good at taking a unit like this apart and putting it back together - and not too bad with a solder stick you could attempt this one yourself... It is a pretty intensive repair but not difficult for a good shop just time consuming. The part isn't too expensive either, just an infared LED... In fact, we've run a bit short on stock once in awhile and bought one of the off the shelf versions from Radio Shack which worked just fine. Good Luck Bill

HELP! I can't figure out how to Connect my Sylvania DVD/VCR Combo to my older TV


Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder. You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.
