Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player
I have had this DVD & VCR Recorder for a week and have been trying to set it up to record and play back with the VCR function. I believe I have properly set it up to record and play back now but, omehow I have done something which is making me unable to change from the DVD to VCR functions. I know this function is workable, because I have use it previously when setting it up. However, I now want to reset the channels, and when I hit the Standby button on the remote, I see a red circle with a line through it on the screen and the face on the VCR will not change from DVD to VCR. I tried hitting the Source button the VCR and it will not change. I am sure this is operator error but just don't know what I did to cause this problem or how to resolve it.
My grandmother had the same problem. Whenever you press "timer set" to set the timer, it automatically turns off the VCR and whenever you turn it back on the VCR is locked and it's stuck on DVD. All you have to do is press "timer set" to unlock the VCR side. Then you may have to press "VCR" to switch it back. Hope this helps.
