Without the make and model, I can only provide generic solutions here. There are a number of "safety" circuits within these units. The VCR section checks to be sure that the tape is moving properly and being wound back into the cassette as well. If the unit plays for a short time and stops, the tape is probably not being would back into the cassette properly. This is often due to a slipping belt or idler tire. Depending upon the make and model, the parts cost for this repair can run from $5-$20.

Hope this helps,
Dan

When trying to play some DVDs, the brightness fades in and out. This started to happen when I bought a new Samsung wide screen TV. Samsung says it is not a problem with the TV and must be with the DVR...


Could be either one the tv or the DVD/VCR player.Take the DVD/VCR player used it with another tv,see if have the same problems happen.If it is the DVD/VCR player dose have this problems,this problems is causes by the DVD/VCR laser eye reader,not worth fixing.The whole new DVD/VCR player only cost like 60 or 70 bucks brand new.If it turn out to be the LCD tv fault,than have very strong case to argument for the Samsung tv corporation for the tv warrenty repair.

Magnavox VCR/DVD recorder model ZV450mw8. VCR plays a tape for 6 seconds then shuts the whole unit down.


You will need a technical person to open the unit. This problem can be as simple as a dirty sensor, or bad tape drive parts, or burned out computer chip.

My solution was to call my warranty company. I'm sending it in and getting my money back. They said it would cost more to fix it than I paid for it.

well sounds like one of the players is not in correct spot thus shuts down (kinda timing issue) see if there is anything preventing it from going jiggle or turn upside down see if you hear anything.
