Hi I had the same problem. Someone gave me this vcr because they said it didn't work w/o the remote and then the remote stopped working when I got it. I got an old universal remote I had and looked up the code for the Go Video online (you can usually just type in the brand of your remote and they usually have a pdf you can open). Then when I entered the code I was able to go and unlock it. Hope this works!!!

I did not found a manual for this specific model ..and Im not familiar with it ..but all similar ones have an external button on a side for locking ..and not on the menu ...Look aside or on the back ..it has to be a button , probably called -"hold".This button will lock any function specially for playing without external intervention .
ok try this first, remove the batteries from the remote and yes make sure you replace them with brand new ones, but before you do that unplug the tv from it's power source and let it sit for a couple minutes at least 3, then plug it back in , put the batteries back in the remote and see if you have everything back, if not I would return everything since you said you had just purchased this set, or contact the makers web site and see if they will provide a new remote since taking the tv back is a real pain.
This problem is due to a type ofcopy protection built into vcr's.
"Macrovision" copy-protection is merely a weakening of a particular
part of the signal that makes up the picture and was primarily intended
to prevent people from copying videotapes. I imagine almost everyone's
seen it but probably didn't know what they were seeing: the resulting
picture is a little jittery and is in black-and-white or alternates
between black-and-white and color. The reason you're seeing a blue
screen is because modern televisions, in the absence of a signal or a
weak signal, will just show a blue screen instead of snow or a very
poor picture. As mentioned above, you can get around Macrovision by
inserting into your connections a signal amplifier that specifically
amplifies the portion of the signal that Macrovision diminishes.
I wish you luck on your search for an answer, but vcr's are programmed for a possible life expectancy. So ur vcr was expecting to be in a landfill by january 2009 and according to its programming there is not a 2009. Combo units at walmart are realativly cheap now a days I would recommend picking up a new one.
I have a DVD player, a VCR player, a TV set all hook into an RCA RT2250 Audio/Video receiver. Everything was working fine until 2 days ago. Now the DVD player gives me a great pix but no sound. The VCR,and TV are just fine and I have checked everything out, speaker connections, mute buttons, etc. and nothing seems to be wrong. I am thinking that some thing in the receiver got fried. Is it repairable?
