Power Problems

Make sure the Magnavox MDR515H/F7 DVD player's power is connected to a working AC outlet and that the cable isn't damaged; a cable that is cut or worn in places may not carry power. Alternatively, make sure the circuit breaker associated with the AC adapter hasn't been tripped. If the circuit breaker has been tripped, reset it. If you are having problems turning the device on using the remote control, make sure the batteries in the remote control aren't dead.

If the Magnavox MDR515H/F7 DVD player is turning itself on and you have it set to record something, that is the DVD player's normal operation; the DVD player turns itself on two second prior to a scheduled recording.

No Picture or Sound

Make sure the audio and video cables connecting the Magnavox MDR515H/F7 DVD player to the monitor are firmly plugged in to the correct jacks on each device. Alternatively, check the cables for damage the same way you checked the power cable in the previous section.

No HDMI Video

An image will not be displayed on an external device connected to the Magnavox MDR515H/F7 DVD player using an HDMI cable if the device does not support High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP). This is to ensure that the external device will not be used to copy HDCP-protected content. Also, check the video output settings on the Magnavox MDR515H/F7 DVD player to ensure the Magnavox DVD player is outputting in a resolution compatible with the external device. If it's not, change the resolution accordingly.

Recording Problems

The Magnavox MDR515H/F7 DVD player will not record another program until two minutes after another scheduled recording has finished. The Magnavox MDR515H/F7 DVD player also can't record a program with a copy protection signal. Also, check the available hard drive space on your Magnavox MDR515H/F7 DVD player to see if there is no more disc space left to record to. You may need to delete some programming to free up space.
