Question about Televison & Video
I have a Philips Magnavox VCR, i think the model number is, H3823. PL flashes on the front of the vcr, it won't do anything else. I don't have the manual for it. I've been trying to find one online. If someone can help me or send me to a site where I can find it, it would be greatly appriciated. thanks, Ann
Most Philips/Magnavox VCR uses "PL" to indicate that the unit is on Parental Lock. Push and hold the power button on the remote control and wait for the unit to power up. This should be within 7 seconds.
Additionally, most (but not all) Philips/Magnavox VCRs are sub-contracted to Funai. Pls try here for Funai downloads of user's manual.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
