It depends on what type of Sharp Model it is.

Some VCR covers have tamper proof screws. You would thus need to find a special screwdriver that will fit the head of the screw. Search Amazon for tamper proof screwdrivers. Make certain it has the correct head to remove the screws.

I forgot my aiwa digital 40 lock password , & it lock rightnow what can i do ?


Just try this method to overcome the situation.

With TV turned ON simultaneously press "Volume Down" button on the front panel of the TV set and digit "7" button on the remote control to reset the pin code and customer ID. You have to reset the pin code and customer ID after this process. This must solve your Aiwa TV problem. OK.

I have a video cassette stuck in a philips vr 700. The screws are not normal. How do I open the vcr?

You will need a special screwdriver. Depending where you live try searching in electrical parts shops such as Maplin (UK) or Radio Shack (USA). They might be what are called tamper proof screws or something along those lines. You could also try google image search to see if you can try to find the type of screw. Try entering "Tamper Proof screws" first and see if any resemble yours.

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


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.

E2 is not an error code. It means that the video tuner is set to EXT2 (Scart input 2)

Press the VCR button on the remote control, and try again.

Missing manual for - sharp VC-A560 VHS

I lost my manual and the biggest issue of getting this set up is getting the vcr to the channel you need for play back either channel 3 or channel 4. To change the channel you hold the power button and the tv/vrc button at the same time till you get the channel you want. Three flashing lights is channel three, four flashing lights is channel 4. every time the power goes out mine resets to channel 3 and will not play videos until I reset to channel 4. Hope that helps.
