Are you having a problem playing vcr tapes ? or are you having a problem setting up the channels?
and is this your vcr?
Need details of how to - 12e0924.jpg or do you have a dvd player , because thats what you have it listed under, but if you have the vcr and you are having problems playing vcr tapes ( tracking can be adjusted on the remote) but the head may be dirty and it does have auto tracking. or inside the player there is manual scews to readjust the tracking setting.
if it is the channels that are a problem then you can auto program the channels in the menu options

Try this one
There is a small hole just to the left of the plugs in the back call 'reset.' Open up a paper clip and use it to press the button inside the hole. It will initialize the VCR settings to the default

Try the following steps.

1. Eject any CD inside. Turn off the unit
2. Unplug the power cable for about 5 minutes then plug the power back in.
3. Using the remote, hold the power button for about 10 seconds
4. Or on the unit itself, hold the power button before plugging the power cable back in.
5. Wait for 10 seconds before you release the power

Hope that helps!

Hi,

Initially, pls try unplugging from the mains for an extended period of time. Additionally, pls confirm the model number. I could not find any listing for an RCA VRA905, there is however a Samsung DVD905. In some versions, a soft reset could be performed by unplugging, press and hold the power/standby button while plugging in; in some others it could be a combination of keys while in others, there would be a small recessed button at the front or rear for a hard reset.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Appreciate the quick postback.

    Most VCRs do not have a reset button/feature unlike some DVD players. To your concern "NEED TO RESET TO DEFAULTS TO RETUNE TO PLAY VCRs.", could you pls clarify:


    • retune;

    • play VCR.
    The way I read it is, you can not watch the movies played in the VCR? If yes, perhaps it is not the VCR that has to be tuned but rather the TV? Meaning the TV is not set to receive the signal output of the VCR. In most PAL models, there would be a hole somewhere where the antenna cables are connected. It would contain an adjustment screw that is used to adjust the channel/frequency of the RF out which is normally in UHF. Often likewise, there would be marking saying something like 39~50 indicating the channel. Should this be the case, pls tune your TV to regular broadcast channel 39 and adjust the VCR till you receive said video feed from the VCR.

    Alternately, perhaps the TV is set to CABLE and not AIR or regular broadcast hence it can not receive the VCR's signal.

Does the RCA TV Model G27400WK, Serial No.234550152 have a reset button and where would it be located?


try these steps
On occasion, an RCA television may need to have certain options reset in order to restore default settings. Software resets, such as resetting the Picture Control, the Parental Control lock and the Wake-Up Timer, can easily be restored to the default settings by accessing the settings menu via the remote control. A Hard Reset is recommended if there are hardware problems with the TV, such as a loss of picture or if the TV isn't turning on properly.

if that doesn't work try these steps
  • Unplug the TV's power cord from the electrical outlet.


  • Wait 5 minutes.


  • Plug the TV's electrical cord back into the electrical outlet. If this does not resolve the problem contact RCA Customer Support or a local technician store

    I need to reset my router back to its default settings linksys wrt 300n wireless n


    First, to reset the router to factory default setting, press and hold the reset button for few seconds (Reset button is at the back of the router near DC Power Jack). The LEDs will then blink and the routers factory settings would be restored.
    Please note that after RESETTING THE ROUTER to defaults, ALL SETTINGS WILL BE LOST AND YOU HAVE TO RECONFIGURE IT. Generally, after hard reset you get the connectivity, however, you have to make the connection secure etc.
    Please, refer the product guide/manual and make configurations as per the details provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP).


    GoodLuck!
    Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

    How do I reset my router's ssid and wep settings. Also, I don't remember my router user name or password


    There are two ways to reset the Router's factory defaults. Either press and hold the Reset button for approximately five seconds, or restore defaults > Factory Defaults in the Router's web-based utility. I suggest just press the reset button will be the best option since the router username and password cannot be retrieve. 81ddc0b.jpg
    Router default IP address is 192.168.1.1 Password screen pop up by default username <blank> password admin.
