Magnavox MWR20V6 Switch VCR/DVD

How can you switch the Magnavox MWR20V6 between the VCR mode and the DVD mode? It should be as easy as turning it on and hitting the DVD or the VCR button.

I have a tape in the VCR side and a DVD-RW on the DVD side. I turn the machine on and it is in the VCR mode. I press the DVD button and the circle with the slash through the middle of it appears on the television.

What am I doing wrong. I just this for my wife for Christmas so last night was the first time I could work with it. I can get it to switch to DVD mode, but no idea how I did it. I can’t make it switch on command. It takes several minutes of hitting buttons on the remote.

I also tapped the VCR/DVD button on the front of the unit. I can hear the DVD trying to wind up a little, but then it stops.

Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions…

I am dumb!

Finally figured out that I had to tap the Set Timer button in order to switch it to DVD mode…

Thanks anyway!!

Have a Happy New Year…
