MAGNAVOX DVD RECORDER MODEL # MWR10D6: Is a piece of junk. Yet another worthless waste material and rescources. In other words they or someone else could have taken the materials and energy used to assymble this thing and used it for some other appliance or device that would actually work. This thing is so worthless that it was environmentally irresponsible for the manufactures to even make it. Now all it's good for is filling landfills.

My suggestion is to do as I am right now and go onto any and every forum, or message board you know about and warn as many people as you can away from this piece of junk and the SCAM that is being perpatrated by Magnavox and whoever else helped them cook up this scam.

I've even made space for a photo of it and description of how sorry it works on both my and pages.

sounds like your player dosen't like packed bitsreams. try unpacking with some software such as MPEG4Modifier or AVIdemux and see if that helps. Playback of packed bitstreams may also be jerky.

SOURCE: Disc Skips

The non-technical answer would be that the lens needs to be cleaned. This is the first step for this type of problem. There are many things that can get the disk drive lens dirty like smoke, incense, dust, moisture. Open the unit and open the DVD cover. You will see the lens that reads a DVD. Get a cotton swab (the ones for cleaning out ears) and some isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and moisten the cotton swab with the alcohol (moisten not soak) and gently (I mean, do not push hard or scrub hard) rub it on the lens. Now with a dry cotton swab, do the same. Let it dry for a minute (longer if the swab had more alcohol and it might have dripped down) and close the unit. Now try to play DVDs and let us know if it worked. Thanks.

SOURCE: It Skips

Either the disk is dirty or the laser lens is. Buy a DVD lens cleaner and use on your player. For the disks, carefully wipe it with lint-free cloth or toilet tissue. Be careful not to scratch the disk. All you are really trying to do is wipe off any fingerprints or lint/dirt.

Hello there,

Step 1: test a new Disc does it freeze with any DVD or bluray Disc

if it doesn't then its a bad Disc, If it does then move onto Step 2

Step 2: Remove the power from the unit power cord and all

Step 3: update the software on the unit
if both of these steps fail move onto the next step

Step 4: Default the unit from the software in the unit

if this step fails let me know and we move onto more Step's i hope this was helpful and don't forget to Rate

Problems with the DVD-VR375

If discs skip, freeze or doesn't read, along with the recording problem, then it could be a dirty lens. If cleaning lens doesn't fix it the optical p/u assembly will have to be replaced. Make sure the items you are trying to record aren't copy guarded.

Will not finalize

I have different version of Panasonic but all the siblings in this family have the same problem. (see forums in Europe and US)

More Timeconsuming troubleshoot:
One of the files being burned to the disc has a skip in it.
See about when/where it cancels the burn. That'll clue you about where it is on the file. Look for a section that shudders/ skips or otherwise displays only 1 frame for a time and doesn't forward. You'll need to go through the entire file on a slowfastforward (not superfast) to see where it begins to skip. Remove that section (set A-B) points and delete that section.

Try again. I found that it will record even with skipped frames to DVD-RW but will not burn to -R even if I took the RW burn and copied it back to the HD because the skipping portion is still part of the file.This happened whenever I edited very closely and was fine-tuning out any commercials. It happens also if you are watching another file while recording. When fast forwarding through a commercial on the file you watch, it taxes the portion that is recording a file at the same time.
If you're not sure and the other files have no dropped frames, then just sacrafice this one. You can burn 1 file at a time to narrow down which one it is.

Prevention: best to let it record and not watch another file at the same time. Let it focus on 1 thing at a time. I know part of the features say you can do both. They never mention that it doesn't do it well. See if you can juggle, ride a unicycle and carry on a conversation simultaneously. You could and there are exceptions who can do this professionally. DVDRs are not one of them.

Easy Troubleshoot: When it does this, reformat.
If you have anything on it, sorry, reformatting will erase everything. Do soon because these are warning signs. I had to reformat every 3 months or so. The last year it lived, it was 1xmonth. Then start over. As soon as you have something to test. Do it before letting the drive pile up more stuff. Then if it works again, great. Otherwise, you may have to reformat a few more times. If it's under warranty, get a work order and have them check it.

I loved mine but they don't market HD recorders like this anymore. After yours dies, consider a HomeTheatre PC but get one that can record HD ATSC signals. PCs can do it now but there is no living room recorders that can record HD yet. You have until 2009 to consider this for a future option. If all your stuff comes in on cable anyway, then no worries. Nothing will change for your situation. When mine died, the contract let them refund my purchase price but there was nothing to buy so I started looking at building one instead since the store also sells computer components. Good Luck.

Trouble with my cyberhome ch-dvd 300

I have the same model player it pauses some of the times on some disks in some locations, I read at a resolution for this for skip frames for those who use PAL and mine skip frames after pausing though I have not tried PAL perhaps this remote code solution might fix this or some have had firmware updates though I could not find any firmware updates as any solution by CyberHome being this happens only happens some of the time it might not be possible to resolve this and taking it to a repair shop likely would not be worth it I am unsure if some software versions helps this Please let me know what you find out, okay? Email does not always go through, hence if you do not get a reply in 24 hours after you email me please try to contact me else how, okay? What is your name address and telephone number?Simncerely, Steven Bolin (206)937-2467 2851 SW. Yancy St. Seattle, WA 98126-2543 (206)937-2467
