Unit Keeps Powering Off...Will not stay on

I own the Magnavox MRV700VR/17 VCR/DVD Player/Recorder. It has been working fine for almost a year and now suddenly, when you turn the unit on, it immediately goes off. Also the VCR button will not switch it to VCR mode, and the tape will not eject. Has anyone had this or similar problem ?

    I had a similar problem with my Philips VRB664AT. I did cut the power completely. When I turned it back on the tape was almost all the way out, but when I did get it out, now the VCR door won't close. No other tapes will go in either.

    same problem

    I tried the unplugging method and got no positive results. The unit would not stay "On" long enough to cue a DVD or do anything with a VCR.

    I am having the same problem. The unit keeps powering off. When it does finally stay on, I cannot get the dvd/vcr to switch. I cannot record on the dvd player. This whole system is bogus. What a waste of money! The unit acts as if it is totally frozen.

    I'm having the same problem with the power shutting off. I've tried unplugging the unit. This seems to help for about ten minutes then the problem begins again.

The first thing you need to try is unpluging the unit from the wall totally then wait for about 5 minutes then plug it back in and try again,if you get the same results the cassete is probably stuck in the vcr and that is why the it unit shutsdown.It will continuo to do this until thye cassete is taken out without being force.The unit will need to be service by a professional.

I have a Magnavox MRV700VR. I can record on a DVDR, but when I try to record on a DVDRW it tells me "disc error". Why?

It will be either that you have not formatted the disc or that you are using the wrong type of disc. You will need a DVD+RW on a + machine or DVD-RW on a - machine. Most recorders will playback the other type but not record on it.

Just hooked up my new Magnavox DV220MW9 DVD Player ? VCR Recorder. I was able to set the time and a vcr timer program but now I can't switch the source. It now comes on as the DVD but neither the remote...

You need to release the timer to access the VCR. Press the Timer Set button on the remote or the Stop/Eject button on the recorder. Then press the VCR button.

Please note: the scheduled recording will not run as programmed unless you press the Timer Set on the remote again. (The timer locks the VCR until the scheduled ON time.) The DVD player is controlled separately and becomes the default unit.

I hope this helps.

Magnavox VCR/CD player will not come on. It is

I have purchased a new VCR/CD player. I tried everything, but nothing worked. I did purchase another Magnavox, but if this machine does not perform any longer than the first one, I will not purchase another one. The reason I purchased a Magnavox this time was that there were no other products available in my town.

Want to copy vcr to dvd on my magnavox mrv700vr

Here is a link to the manual:
http://www.m4c.magnavox.com/files/m/mrv700vr_17/mrv700vr_17_dfu_aen.pdf

It specifically lists disc types that you cannot use to record - it specifically states that you can't use DVD-R discs for recording on this unit. DVD+R or DVD+RW are the only disc types you can use for recording on this unit.

Philips MRV700VR DVD Recorder / VCR Combo

Crack the top open and look inside for any foreign matter. Usually the cause is debris in the IR path that detects start and end of tape or the loading mechanisim is faulty.

Magnavox mwd2206

On a unit I checked with this same symptom, removing the top cover allows the unit to stay on and operate normally. There is some sort of sensor at the left middle of the chassis, which, when unblocked by any opaque object, allows the unit to remain on. A temporary fix (not advisable) would be to replace the top cover with a piece of clear plastic or taut saran wrap (no vent holes needed). It's unclear exactly where/what that sensor is from a cursory test. This is a work in progress on someone else's machine that I lack full access to.
