Question about Philips Magnavox MWR20V6 DVD Recorder/VCR
As long as I don't have a disc in it, I will work. Once I put any disc in it, even a movie, it shuts off. It was working for two weeks after I got it. Now it just shuts off as it starts to "loading the disc". I even bought new cables and RF Converter box but to no avail. I love the thing. I was having fun recording.
Sullivan53....were you able to open the door and take the DVD out? I have almost the same problem, only I cannot open the door. I actually had to take the face plate off so that I could the DVD out. Now, the DVD drawer is stuck out and I cannot push it back in. It bounces between open, close, loading. Driving me nuts. If anyone out there has anymore suggestions, I need to hear them. I live to far from a repair shop. I would really like to get the drawer shut before someone hits it and breaks it. Thanks.

I bought this a couple of yearsa ago at Christmas and it was working fine up till a month or so ago when it would just shut itself off for no apparent reason!
I unplugged it, played with the wires, and searched the internet for answers and found none.
I decided to throw it out- I disconnected it and unplugged it permantely and put it by the door to throw out. That was 2 weeks ago. I never got aroung to throwing it out.
Yesterday, for the hell of it, I decided to plug it back in to see if it could possibly work and VIOLA!!
It is actually working like brand new! I did not do anything except leave it unwired and unplugged for 2 weeks! I swear I don't know why it works but it does!
Try this!! I dunno if it'll work but it did for me!! Crazy !!

This unit has a problem with component failure in the dvd section of the unit. It is probably in the power supply to the dvd drive. Thats why it fails when you insert a dvd. You should get the unit tested and serviced for the problem. You can call the Magnavox customer support at thsi telephone number 1-800-605-8453. Tell them the model number of the unit and about the failure of dvd section of the unit. They will be able to tell you how you can get the unit serviced. I hope this information helps you with you problem.
