Customer Question
I have a magnavox...

I have a magnavox dvd / vcr combo unit Dv220mw9. the unit needs its vcr heads cleaned. Does magnavox still work on these units? If not can you suggest someone who does in Colorado around Denver .

Technician's Assistant: How old is your DV220MW9?

I don't know, I'm not the origanal owner.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your DV220MW9?

Wet and Dry head cleaners.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Video Expert to know before I connect you?

If magnavox does still repair these, do you have any idea what it would cost?

Hello, My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with this.

To answer that ;

You don`t need magnavox for that , any tv/stereo repair shop that has been in business for a while has cleaned video heads on a vcr

What makes you think that it needs cleaning any , what are the symptoms

Snowy/grainy picture or lines through it for example ?

Note that myself I do not send those $26 phone offers that you will receive , they are automated by the website and I`m not available for it at this time but another expert might be if you`d rather do this on the phone .
Otherwise you can just ignore them if you don`t want it , i have no control over those.
