I have a Magnavox MDR537H DVR recorder that I need to repair its DVD recorder. I checked with Magnavox and they will not sell parts to private parties and the nearest repair they had for to me is over 50 miles away in PA. The problem is that I accidentally put two DVD discs in the DVD recorder when I was trying to dub from the hard drive. It started making a loud nose and ejected. Both discs were ruined and the top one had circular scrapes on it. It seemed ok after I took the broken dics out but now will not recognize nor play any DVD. I have opened the case to examine the DVR for anything obviously broken but it looks OK. I suspect the motor is binding a little or not engaging with the disc properly as it does not seem to turn freely but will turn sometimes. If anyone can offer any suggestions on what I should check or a place to buy parts I would appreciate it.
