Question about Philips Magnavox 20MC4304 20 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Philips Magnavox DV200MW8

Everytime I put a tape in the vcr it plays for two seconds then the entire unit shuts off. When I turn it back on the tape spits out. I try it again and it does the same thing over and over. I can't play anything for more than a few seconds.

    I have the same exact problem. I checked the "idler" and Belt. That is NOT my problem. The fault is with the Micro-Processor located on the main circuit board. The new problem is "Funai" won't sell the board to a consumer, they will only sell to a repair shop. Does any know how I can buy this part? E-Mail: fatamac@aol.com

The tape player section has some safety sensors inside that will shutdown the system when there is a problem. The most common cause of this is either a bad belt or "idler". If the tape is not moving or the take up side is not moving, this will happen. This is a simple repair for any shop and should runfrom $5-$25 for parts (belt - idler) plus the local labor rate.

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.

Magnavox TV/DVD/VCR combo keeps turning off


So after calling a tv repair guy and listening to him tell me about how it is probably something to do with the transistor and it will cost me about 150 dollars to fix ( which I could buy a new tv for that price since it is only a 19 inch) I decided to look online at this issue of turning off after 5-10 seconds. I read about it being an issue with the VCR sensor, so I don't know about it being some LED that you have to replace because I just messed around with a VHS and moving the little white bar thingy on the right just inside the door for the VHS around a bit, and Voila it started working right again. I think maybe my son tripped something by sticking things in there and whatever I touched fixed it. So my advice is to just stick a VHS in and take it back out a few times and play with a few things inside and to the right. It didn't take long for it to work for me.

TV/VCR combo unit trying to eject non-existent tape


The problem is that the loading is out of timing by a tooth. This would explain both the attempt to load a non-existant tape as well as the unit shutting down. This unit needs to be disassembled and the belts replaced and the loading mechanism re-timed. I have done many of these with success. While time consuming because the entire unit must be taken apart, it is not a real difficult repair for anyone that has done them in the past. Where are you located so I can make a referral?

one of your tapes may have a bad spot on it causing the problem...if you clean it and use the same bad tape again you can cause the same problem again

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.
