After leaving it on record for 4hrs.setting,i came home and it was recording 4hr.30min.later.after manually turning it off,it has not powered on since.
i checked all connections and the wall plug
to no avail.
ANY SUGGESTIONS OTHER THAN BASHING IT OR MY
HEAD AGAINST THE WALL?????
Oh my god this thing is a piece-o-junk. It seemed to work just fine until about time the 90 day warranty ran out. The for some reason it started turning itself on and off without a timer program being set or anything. I did this every day at exactly 12:00 am and 12:00 pm. I should have known something was going bananas with it, but it still did everything else it was suppose to. Then it became impossible to set proper recording timer programs because the clock settings won't activate. It's like the internal clock is stuck or someting. Tried to get help from Magnavox and Wal-Mart, but like I said, it's outside the 90 day warranty now. What I suggest you do is the same as what I'm doing now. Tell as many people as you can and warn them away from this product, this company, and the scam-job they are running with this worthless piece of plastic.

The top arm that swings over the spindle will control the automatic return. Leave the unit off. Swing the overhead holding top arm over and manually load a record. Now switch the top arm over the niddle spindle. Make sure that the switch is set for 7", 10" or 12" (45, 78, or 33). Manually place the tonearm at the start of the record and flip switch to 'play' (not reject or auto). It should play the whole record and automatically eject at the end and then shut off. Leave the arm swung over the middle after you loaded the record. Good luck. Let me know if you have any more questions.

For problems with timed recording, make sure the clock is correctly set. If power goes out for more than 30 seconds, the clock will be incorrect and the timer information will be off. Insert a blank tape (or one you want to record over). Then press Menu and then go to Timer Programming. (Use the up/down arrows and then hit the right arrow button.) Set the frequency of recording followed by the day and start time of the programmed recording. Then set the end time of the recording. Next set the channel number. (with some set top boxes and TV connections, choose 3 or 4 depending on the way the setting of the RF output. Then set the channel on the set top box and leave the box on.) Then set the recording speed. Press T-set to lock in the program. If you want to watch a tape before the program starts, press T-set (turning off the timer light). Remember to press T-set afterwards to resume programmed recording. You can't record to DVDs.
What you might have done with your universal remote is imputted a code that is good for some Panasonic models, but won't activate all functions on your VCR. There are lots of Panasonic codes, the user manual for the remote should have them, try them all if in doubt, to see if you can get it to work.
If you can't find any more codes, I will post the ones I know on request.
If you leave the tv unplugged for 2 days (atleast) then plug it back in and try to turn it on and if it comes on its the power supply board. If it comes back on it will probably shut off between 30min to 4hrs and you would have to unplug it for 2 days again. All the power needs to drain out of the tv. If thats the case take the back pannel off and check the part number out on the internet. Not hard to do becarefull touching things the power supply does store a little bit or shock in it. Good Luck.
You have to go the main menu and select record times, and day. Make sure you leave your tv set on, and on the channel that you wish to record the program on. You can set the start and stop times a few minutes before and after on the vcr, just to make sure you get the whole program. You can also set the vcr to record this program every day, any day of when ever you wish you can just manually hit "record on the vcr remote. Good luck, let me know how you make out! Thanks
Only use one of the disc types that is listed in the manual that they have actually tested on unit. If the HDD recordings were made in HQ mode, then you will only be able to fit a one-hour or less recording on a DVD. You cannot reverse this at this point. For future HDD recordings, set the record mode to 4hr or higher.
Several things to check
1) Your time - set it manually and remove the automatic time set
2) Try manually recording even a few min of anything (just put on channel to record, press DVD button and DVD Record button) - does it give you an error message on that disk? If so it might be because you are using 16x and machine sometimes gets messed up and won't record on those speed disks - same with +R sometimes does this - try recording on 8x -R ones.
Hopefully this helps - if not try unplugging unit from wallsocket and leave off about 30min then try setting program again etc (plus current local time) and use a new disk and see if problem still occurs - sometimes just unplugging it "resets" everything and then starts working again.
