Question about Philips Televison & Video

1 Answer

We had not used our Magnavox dvd/vhs player in quite awhile so I cleaned the dvd with cleaning kit, and also cleaned the actual dvd before we tried playing it. The dvd had a scratchy , static, sound throughout the whole movie. I've cleaned them both again and still scratchy. Any help, please?

Hello
Just put in a new CD into it and check whether it will read it or not. Check this with an MP3 CD also. If these two works, and the set does not recogonize DVD only, or it doesn't recogonize and read none of them, the laser unit asembly in your Philips set is damaged. Usually, philips laser units are of special types and should be replaced with same type and number. Never use any substitutions; none of the will match to it. Insist on original type and number. OK

Went i put a tapes my vhs it just eating the tape up and it cuts off


You need to purchase a VHS head cleaner or clean the heads and pinch rollers by hand. remove cover and lid to drive system. you will see all the tape guides, rollers and heads. use Q-tips and denatured alcohol and clean every thing the tape touches. swap q-tips as they get dirty.

VCR PLAY FOR A FEW SECONDS AND THEN QUITS


Dirty heads? Need cleaning. General cleaning of all internal pinchers and rollers. Sometimes the tape is at fault. Try another just in case. I think it is time for a good cleaning. Also the eject cartridge can sometimes get bent and cause misalignment of the VHS tape and the rollers, etc....

DVD burner will not burn or finalize


Hi,
There are three things you can do that will eventually give you a working solution. Depending on the level of problem. Start with 1 progress to 3 until it works.
1. Use a cleaning disc. (one that use an alcohol based liquid)
2. If the cleaning disc does not solve it, you can use an ear bud, with some iso-propyl alcohol to clean the DVD lens on the drive directly. (you have to open the player and the drive)
3. The guaranteed working solution is to replace the DVD drive inside the player. This is quite a simple process, as most players use a standard IDE DVD-ROM or DVD writer.
You simply remove the face plate, (apply power to the drive, and press eject first) the tray will open. Unclip the tray face, and then with the tray open you can unclip the plastic face plate too.
Remove the old drive, and fit the new drive by reversing the removal procedure.
Once everything is assembled you should be able to watch DVD's again. If you can't find a cheap DVD drive locally, try ebay.
I have done this on over 50 players for my clients in the past. I use LG DVD roms and DVD writers for the DVD recorders, irrespective of brand.
Let me know how it goes.

I just bought a Magnavox ZV450MW8A DVD/VCR Recorder. It has recording capabilities on both the DVD and VCR components but can you tell me if I can use it to record FROM the VCR directly onto the DVD? This...


Yes, you can, I have this unit and have actually copied a dvd to a vhs and then copied back to a dvd as I wanted a dvd copy to give a friend. The directions in the book are really quite simple. They tell you how to set the vhs to the spot where you want to start copying, etc.

I have not yet tried copying my family vhs tapes, but don't see a problem, just a big project. Good luck.
