Question about Philips Magnavox DVD+R/+RW Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

I have a Magnavox Digital Video Disc Recorder & Video Cassette Recorder , Model No. VM426MG9A. I bought the unit in August 2010. When I go to record a program, it seems OK but when it starts recording it only records about five minutes and then stops and the timer set lights starts blinking. When I take the tape out it is difficult to eject. I am finally able to take the tape out there is about 6" pulled out of the actually case. Can anyone help me??? Thank you,

The recording set-up must have been program to record only in 5 minutes. You could play around with the remote and try to enter the record set-up. The problem with the VCR must be a worn-out belt or a dirty loading mechanism. You could try to replace the belt or clean the surface area where all the mechanism slide together or make contacts and put an small amount of recommended grease or petroleum jelly.

My Magnavox Digital Disc Recorder & Video Cassette Recorder will not play DVD-RW discs. How can I solve this problem or get a replacement unit.


It claims to play -RWs finalized in DVD-VIDEO format, not VR. If a disc is recorded/finalized on a different recorder, not all players can play it. This is the price we pay for the convenience of the digital system.

How do I connect the Magnavox to my cable?


If you are talking about the Magnavox ZV427MG9, this unit is a Digital Video Disc Recorder and Cassette Recorder. There are no connections for the RF cable (analog) that is normally connected to the back of the TV from the cable company or satellite receiver. However, you can use RCA connectors, S-Cable and other cables to connect to your TV if your TV has these types of IN and OUT connections available. Most TVs made in the past 5-7 years have these types of connections.

--- they are as follows:

1) Press Setup

2) Scroll down, select "Disc Edit", press "OK"

3) Scroll down, select "Finalize", press "OK"

4) Select "Yes", press "OK"

Finalizing will start.

Viewing a recorded DVD+R on PC


I am assuming you have an actual dvd drive of some sort installed in your computer. The problem you may be having is a missing codec. This problem can be solved by downloading a VLC player which has most needed codecs pre installed. This program is freeware and can be easily found online. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
