If you can’t find your DVD player or Blu-ray player remote control, or it has stopped working, don’t despair. You can often still play media using buttons on the device itself. You can also use a universal remote or, with some models, a smart phone app to control the player.
Turn on the DVD player and Magnavox TV, then press the “Input” button on the TV remote control repeatedly until the DVD player signal appears on the Magnavox TV screen. The DVD player is now ready to spin discs for playback on the TV.
If the DVD player fails to operate, try to reset the unit by switching it off and removing the plug from the wall. Wait a minute and then restart the DVD player.
How to Finalize a disc on Magnavox DVD Recorder Without The Original Remote
- Make sure the disc is inserted in the recorder.

Can I use my phone as a remote for my DVD player?
Power Universal Remote Control is an application that turns your Android mobile device into a remote control for a DVD. To do this, it is extremely important that your Android phone or tablet has an infrared port.
Connecting such a device to your TV can be done with the proper cables. Connect a set of composite RCA video/audio cables (three plugs: yellow for video, red and white for audio) from the composite “DVD/VCR Audio/Video Out” jack on the rear panel of the Magnavox VCR/DVD player to a matching composite input on your TV.
How do I connect my DVD player to my HDMI TV without HDMI?
Connect the composite video cable (Yellow RCA) to the DVD player. Next, connect the White and RED audio RCA cables to the corresponding connectors on the back of the DVD player. Take the other side of the composite cable and audio cables and connect them to your TV.
This issue can occur if a video signal encrypted with copyright protection passes through a VCR. If using A/V cables, check that the red, white, and yellow plugs are securely connected to the same colored jacks on both the disc player and TV (or A/V receiver).
How do you fix a DVD player that won’t eject?
Here’s what to do:
- Unplug the disc player.
- Take out the screws securing the cover and remove it.
- Blow air into the mechanism to remove dust.
- Plug the player back in.
- Try ejecting the tray.
- If it doesn’t eject, look for something jamming the tray.
- Also see if the belt is damaged or broken or fell off.
Power on your Blu-Ray player, open the tray and insert the newly burned disk. The Blu-Ray player will prompt you on your television screen to update the firmware.
Can you finalize a DVD in a different recorder?
Often you can still finalize discs from old machines on any newer model of the same brand (Panasonic, Pioneer, Phillips, Magnavox).
How do I finalize a recorded DVD?
