Hopefully you still the VCR. Your's is stuck in "CHILDLOCK" mode. To release the lock you have to have the remote and press the DISPLAY for 8 to 10 seconds.

The purpose of the CHILDLOCK is to prevent others from using your VCR. If you want to set the VCR back on Lock you again press the DISPLAY for 8 to 10 seconds.

This solution is from the owner manual for HS-U448, so I figure your model is the same.

SOURCE: samsung vr3607 vcr is locked

following is pasted from SV-7000W manual: 1 To lock the VCR, hold down the P/STILL (II) button for approximately five seconds. Result: The lock indicator (LOCK) is displayed. If a cassette is in the VCR when you lock it, the cassette will first be ejected. 2 To unlock the VCR, hold down the P/STILL (II) button again for approximately five seconds. Result: The lock indicator (LOCK) is no longer displayed. If that fails, try the same thing using the play/stop button. Cheers

There is a reset for this problem and it worked for my VCR. This was a last resort without the manuel.

Only someone with electronics experience should do this.

Vcr keeps saying safe


Try this: (actually found in user manual...)

Pro-Tect Plus™ (Child Lock) Feature

This feature is useful to tamper proof your timer recordings from unwanted changes

and/or protect the VCR from mis-operation by other users in the household.

To Lock the VCR

Press and hold POWER or VCR on the remote for

approximately six seconds to turn on the Pro-Tect Plusª

feature.

SAFE appears in the VCR front panel to let you know the

feature is activated.

To Unlock the VCR

Press and hold VCR button on the remote for approximately

six seconds to unlock the VCR.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Turn the VCR on and remove any tape. Press the record button and the VHS/TV button simultaneously. You should see a message saying the VCR is unlocked. It worked for me.

Pro-Tect Plus™ Locking Feature
To disable VCR usage or to protect set timer recordings, the unit can be locked so that the
buttons on the VCR or remote control don’t work.
• To Lock: Press and hold either the remote control’s ON•OFF or VCR button until SAFE
appears in the display to indicate Pro-Tect Plus is active. SAFE also appears if the VCR is
turned on while the feature is activated.
To Unlock: Press and hold either the remote control’s ON•OFF or VCR button until SAFE
disappears from the front panel display. Unlocking is the only way to use the VCR.

Proscan vcr plus gold stuck in lock


I just had the same problem and found a solution on the internet that worked. Hopefully you still have the VCR's remote control. Press and hold either the on/off, VCR1 or VCR2 button on the remote. I pressed the VCR1 button and held it for about 5-7 seconds. It released the lock and worked fine afterwards. The lock is some kind of childlock devise.

How to unactivate 'vcr lock' ?


Generally, if you aim the remote at the VCR with the STOP button pressed, for around 10 seconds, the VCR gets 'unlocked'. Try it.
