Magnavox repair question

 

Unregistered guest
I have a magnavox # VRU642AT. Started acting up by playing back and only getting blue screen. Was recording cause recorded Tape would play on another vcr. When watching tv through vcr itwould intemittently get blue screen and picture would roll. Then when Itryied to record, vcr would turn off and on and I could not get tape to eject. Could not shut off vcr with power button or eject tape cause it would continuously shut itself off and on. Unplugged unit and now when plugged back in nothing happens. Took top off and got tape out. when plugged back in , I hear a small high pitched noise as though some power is coming in and the drum will turn a little and then stop.
Please, what is wrong and is it worth trying to fix.
Thanks ever so much

Sounds like a bad power supply. They are Funai VCRs, not worth fixing.

PS
What would you consider a decent VCR for just taping tv shows and watching?
Thanks

I have a Magnavox which has started having picture problems - swirly/distorted picture. This occurs with satellite and with broadcast stations and also when playing DVDs, so it appears to be the TV and not the source. When I display the satellite program guide there is a minor distortion but the "picture in picture" which the guide provides is just fine. If I go full-screen on that channel, however, the distortion is there instantly.

Is there some adjustment I am missing (I am thinking of the old horizontal and vertical hold adjustments)? Or is there a failing part I can replace? Or is the set a goner?

Thanks in advance,

John

I have a Magnavox with the same problem JJH mentions. That's why I'm on this site. It sounds as though JJH has been to my house. Lately, however, even when I view the satelite program guide, the little "picture in picture" is distorted also. I can't even count on that anymore. The first thing I thought of was the horizontal. Does anyone have suggestions?

I have a Magnovox television. Last week, I lifted it up to move it and since then it keeps scrolling through a message saying "this will be your next television..." and then it runs through all the functions it has. Pushing buttons on the tv does not change anything. It just keeps scrolling - even after I unplugged it for a day, when I plugged it in again, it kept scrolling. I do not have the original television remote. Is the tv fixable?

I have a Magnavox which I have been using with a cable box for several years. I don't have the original remote as it got lost sometime. I need to have the TV in the "Auxilary Input" Mode. I can get it in this mode thru the buttons on the TV but when I turn the set off and then on again, it has reverted to the "Antenna Input" Mode.
Any suggestions as to how I can get it to stay in the auxilary mode?

I have a Magnavox TV that I am attempting to connect to a TiVo DVR with DVD. I also have a Comcast cable box involved. I have done the TiVo setup with the TV in the "Aux In" mode because of the DVD. This operates fine until I turn the TV off. When I turn the TV back on, it reverts to the "Antenna In" mode. I have found the Magnavox remote that I thought was lost but can't figure out how to change the mode to "Aux In" permanently so that it will remain in that mode when I turn the set on.

If it has a built in guide it's probably switching to tuner to update the guide.

My Magnavox 4-head VHS-HQ with OSD bar code wand has lost its ability to show channels above 13 (the UHF ones). Is it worth trying to get it repaired or not? The bar-code wand reader makes it a breeze to program. The model number is VR9547AT01, manufactured in July, 1988. Thanks.

Doug, if you have an antenna make sure it's not set on cable, if you have cable make sure it's not set on antenna.

David...
Thanks so much for suggesting the the problem was with the programmable option on the Magnavox VCR remote for TV vs CATV. That solved the problem instantly. Have a Great Thanksgiving...and thanks for giving me the right answer!

HI
We have Magnavox TV, 1996, Mod. PR1916 C121
(Serial #58898056).
It was running fine on Cable TV, and suddenly when turned on, the channels are gone and we get a snowy screen. We tried hooking it up to another cable that we knew was working fine and had the same problem. When we go into the on-screen menu, and choose cable, it asks to reprogram the chanels, again and again. Then we exit the menu and we still have snow and no channels. What do you think?

Unplug it for a few minutes, it may reset. There is usually a way to reset equipment to factory specs, but you would probably have to contact Magnavox to find out how.

I am trying to find a repair shop to diagnose some minor problems with an older model magnavox console television. I want to take the tv into the repair shop rather than have a repairman come to the house to save the $95 fee for just the drive (without diagnostics or repair itself). I live near San Antonio, Tx. Any ideas as to where I can take my tv? Sears and Best Buy say they won't work on consoles in their shops but would come to the house. I can't see paying $95 only to find the tv not worth repairing.

For those of you who have Magnavox's in which the power switch seems to turn on and off intermittently; I have had to take the circuit board out and solder various places...hard to locate disconnects, but just a quick solder fix and it is off and running again. I suspect the sound problem that gbsn68335 is having is similar. The TV now has lost all the channels except one and I can't seem to get it to auto-program any others---tried manual, but only blue screens show on any channels----help?????

I have a Magnavox TV/VCR in one. Model CCS191AT21. I do not have the remote for it. It seems to be from the early 90's. I am trying to hook it up to my Comcast cable box, but in order to do that, the TV must be on channel 4. Sounds easy enough, except my TV will not let me manually change the channel beyond Channel 2 and A/V in. There is no menu button or anything of the like on the TV itself. I got a universal remote for it,programmed it, but it still does not allow me to change the channel beyond those two options! What is going on? Can anybody help me??

You need to be able to access the menus. Then you can go into the channel programming menu and manually add channel 4. If the remote you have won't access menus, get a One For All remote. They have the highest compatibility.

Hey re: on screen message repeating and can't power off, I had the same problem and I was just
pushing 2 different buttons ( different combinations) at a time on the tv
unit and it finally turned off. I then was able to turn it on with the
remote or from the tv unit. I spoke to a tv repair guy, familar with this
problem and he said someone must have enter two different commands at the
same time, and it needed to be reprogrammed ( about $45.00), he also said it
could easy happen again if one enters two commands again ( by accidentally
sitting on the remote pushing several buttons at the same time). It's ironic
that it took me to push two buttons on the set at an time, but I'm not
complaining it fixed it (and also broke it in the first place). Another
reply message said to push the volume and menu button at the same time on tv
set, also unplug tv and hold down power button, while still holding down
power button, plug tv back in for 10 seconds, then try to power unit off .
Hope this can help ... Aloha!

I purchased a cheap magnavox player less than a year ago. I few nights ago I was watching a DVD that my son recorded and sent home from Iraq and while I was scrolling through the different pictures and video clips I pressed the menu or set up buttons and the screen started rolling and now will not stop. I tried unplugging but that did not work. Some internet research brought up the word "PAL Mode" but I do not understand it and not sure if that is it. I tried putting in a DVD movie and the movie played but the screen was still rolling. I also tried pushing one button at a time to bring up the menu and set up which it does but since it is rolling I cannot see what to do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

magnavox question
Unregistered guest
Is it possible to record an auxiallary input to L1 or L2 withour a tv? Specifically, I am having trouble figuring out how to record from a 2.4 Ghz wireless camera directly to a Magnavox VCR without using a television. I see that when the wireless reciever is hooked up to the vcr input RCA jacks, and the vcr is then co-axed to a television, the vcr will record what the camera sees, that is, what is on the tv. However, when the tv is disconnected, the vcr will not record anything but ants having a snowball fight. So my question is.....can I record onto my vcr without using a tv?

The TV shouldn't have anything to do with recording, unless you have the camera hooked to the TV and then to the VCR. Hook the camera directly to the VCR and it won't matter if the TV is on or off.
 

wireless problems
Unregistered guest
I tried that, it seems as if the vcr knows there is a tv hooked up or not, and when the co-ax to the tv is disconnected, the vcr will not record the wireless feed, this is a brand new magnavox. the problem is that i do not want to use a tv at all. i want to place the vcr in a remote location without a tv, and just tape what is fed to the vcr from the wireless reciever, then remove the tape and view it elsewhere. the vcr will not record the feed though, it seems, without a co-ax going to a tv. is the vcr that smart? or am i that dumb? I have the rca's hooked right up to the vcr inputs, but it will only record what it sees on L1 or L2 if there is also a tv on the end of the co-ax out. The sequence is this...power on vcr, power on wireless reciever, power on camera. down channel vcr 3 spaces to L1, record on. then tape for a while, remove tape to view, and it shows nothing but static. If the same sequence is followed with a tv hooked up to the vcr, it works fine.

That's is truly strange, it shouldn't make any difference. Try connecting RCA jacks to the VCRs output and see what happens.

thanks for thinking about the problem i had with that vcr/camera combo David, i truly appreciate it. I finally got it figured out. What was happening was, once the vcr went through its initial power up, it was asking for a time/date setting, then a cable/air setup before it could record on L1. I patched it through a co-axial to a remote t.v in my kitchen so i could see what was happening. the trick was that i was unplugging the vcr and moving it, scrambling the initial setup menu, so my sequencing was wrong as i didn't account for the setup menu. got it now! thanks again!

I have an older magnavox tv (model #CCT190AT01) that seems to have eaten the tape in the VCR. It will only turn on for maybe 2 seconds, enough time to change the channel before turning off again. There is a videotape in there that I am unable to eject. The TV/VCR reads the eject command but won't let the tape out. Really strange, I know. Any suggestions?

Unplug it and plug it back in. If the tape goes in on top of the TV, it's a Panasonic and might be worth fixing, if the tape goes in on the bottom it's a Funai and isn't worth fixing.

I have a 2-3 yrold Magnavox TV-VCR. I have had it connected to DIRECTV and have been using the RCA universal remote. Last week, the remote stopped working, so I re-programmed it, and when I turn it on, it stays on for about 3 seconds and automatically shuts off. I disconnected the satellite cable and try to use just the TV, and the same thing happens. This happened once before and I called cut service (not sure if it was DIrectv or Magnavox/Philips) and they told me what to do. IT worked. Now, no one knows what is wrong. Can you help out?

It keeps running through some sort of sales promotion. It goes through all the functions ...like sleep, volume, english, and etc. It won't quit. Remote won't work. We pushed every button on it. Nothing. I don't see a reset on the back. What can we do? Any help .....Thanks! Zoey

I have a magnavox 5 dvd changer w/ surround sound. The remote just stopped working one day. I have tried everything from batteries to buying replacement universal remotes as well as universal magnavox remotes (guaranteed to work). So far nothing works. Is there anyway to reprogram my old remote? I have looked it up and the remote # is #996500015844.

I have tried everything from batteries to new remotes both universal and magnavox universal (guaranteed to work). So far nothing works. I can manually control the system but there are alot of functions on the remote not on the machine. The # on the inside of the remote is RC MRD250 37S. Also says WIR 100250-9501. I looked the remote up online and got a # of 996500015844.

I have a Magnavox made in 1993 I believe. The screen does the scrolling type thing, where it flashes up really quickly. It only does it sometimes depending on how the chord is plugged in it will do it also when you first turn it on it wont do it for anywhere from 0 seconds to 10 minutes. The weird thing is when i turn the TV guide on (I have a cable box) it wont act up and it will stop doing the fast scrolling and the picture will be fine. It does it when it is running off of the cable cord, or when its running off the A/V. PLEASE HELP!!

I have an older Philips Magnavox Smart Plus Series TV with PIP. I'm getting a large black square in the middle of the screen which I assume to be the parental lock because I can see the whole picture momentarily when I'm flipping through channels then it goes away and then it comes back after a few seconds. In the on-screen menu,it asks for the access code, which I do not know what it is or how it got set (probably one of my two young kids). It also says to "see your manual if you've forgotten your access code" which I cannot find. Could you please tell me how to reset the access code so I can turn off the parental lock?

I have a Magnavox VCR Model # VRU222AT21.
The VCR has suddenly stopped displaying video. However, the audio is perfect. It even displays the on screen Menu, but doesn't display video. Instead it just shows a blue screen. All other functions like tuning and TV are working fine

I have a Philips Magnavox 20" tv. It is over 5 years old. When I turn it on it comes on for a few minutes and then shuts off. It will do this several times before it stays on. The volume will also change on its own. Can it be fixed or should I get a new tv?

I have a 50 inch Magnavox Projection TV that when you press the power on button the red light comes on for about a minute and then starts flashing for a minute and then shuts off. Do you have any idea what the problem is? The Tv is only about 18 months old. I have tried disconnecting the power source for a couple of minutes and this doesn't help... Thank you...

I have a Magnavox VCR model VF1835. The tape goes in just fine and apparently threads ok and will sometimes play. Everytime the tape will eject but the tape is caught on something prohibiting the tape from being removed. I'm not sure if this is the type of VCR that is junk and should be thrown away or if there is a solution.

I purchased a 14" mag tv when turning off with remote after a while it will come back on. If you turn it off with the power button it will stay off. I returned it at another store. The second TV does the same thing. Any help would be appreciated.

If there isn't an input button on the remote, go through the channels till you get to line.

I don't have the original television remote and the universal I have does nothing. The buttons on the television don't work either. Can anyone help?
