Re: safe mode

The safe mode on Sanyo VCRs locks out the buttons on the machine. Try using the remote. To turn off the safe mode, look for a button on the remote labeled "Safe."

turn off and unplug from power outlet, let sit a few minutes....then plug in power up, check JVC home page on net to see if they have problems with these, could be a disc stuck in unit....if door will not open, take back to where you bought it....I have a Pioneer but I did take the cover off and a DVD was stuck in side, I managed to carefully remove is a slow process as everything is made from plastic

SAfe mode is stuck on. Was using DVD player

1. Check the batteries in the remote to see if they have a charge.
2. If you have a DVD button on the unit itself press this and see if you get a response.
3. Unplug the unit and wait 30 second plug it back into the AC and try your DVD player , this usually resets the digital switch in the controller to default.
4. You may need to have the unit serviced.
5. Go to the manufacturer's site and check the "troubleshooting" information for this problem there may be a solution that I may not have covered here or there may be a procedure they have to reset the unit.
I hope this helps! Have a great New Year!

Can't turn on my go video dvd/vcr player, keeps

Unplug it, press the power button, then plug it in and retry it. If it doesn't work, unplug it, press power, and let it sit a couple days, to try to reset everything. There may be a reset pinhole in the back, unplug it and press the reset button.

Panasonic DVD player stuck in safe mode

Just got off with the Panasonic people. You have to turn it on, then hold down the VCR play button and channel up button at the same time until the unit turns off. This will reset the whole player. Then turn it back on & it should open!

Stuck on Standby

Do a hard reset. Unplug it from the socket, the DVD and leave disconnected for 4 hours. This may or may not help, but it is a necessary step to restore all internal software codes to their factory settings.

Hope this may help;

Safe mode

This is probably the Dew sensor or the mech for one of the drives is jammed. Remove the top cover to see if there is anything it the way.
