I have a Magnovox DVD & VHS combo player. It's a few years old and never any issues. Now all of a sudden it randomly decides to just quit playing. Sometimes I can watch it for up to an hour sometimes just 5-10 minutes then with no warning the blue screen comes on and it won't come back. What is wrong with it?
turning the device off for a few minutes at a time
Hi there and welcome to Just Answer. I'm Steve. Thanks for asking your question. I'm sorry to hear about your Recorder.
Does it do this on VHS, DVD or both?
If it is doing it on both 'sides' then I would suspect something in the power supply section.
There is no good answer for this. The player has issues at component level that would need to be repaired.
Is this something you want to pursue?
Let me know and I an give you more info. Let me know your zip.
