I tried the 4-digit code in the manual but the arrow keys didn’t work, so I futzed until I found something that worked.

The 4-digit code for the DVD half of the DVD/VCR combo is 1409. I haven’t tried getting the VHS half to work yet, but 1409 worked for the DVD.

I couldn’t find the answer to this elsewhere on the internet, so I wanted to post it here in case it helps anyone else. Please leave a comment if this works for you (or doesn’t).

Good luck!

    Thanks so much for posting this info. I just purchased a universal remote control for a Magnavox MWD2205 and I’ll have to wait another week or so to see if this code works.

    Happy to help! This code doesn’t seem to be capable of turning off the power of the whole unit (just the VCR half of it) but it’s still the best one I’ve found.
