Question about GE VG2042 VHS VCR

1 Answer

The school where I work has a GE2042 VCR avaiable for my classroom but no remote control for the VCR. When the vcr is turned on a screen comes up asking me to select a language. Since I do not have a remote, I cannot get past this screen. I have tried to use the buttons on the front panel of the vcr to select a language but none of them seem to do anything at all while this screen is up. Is there a way to bypass this screen and work the vcr using only the buttons on its front panel?

Hello eldillon,

You can contact the manufacture and get a replacement remote. I would advise that you do this before getting a universal remote.
Try GE's website

I hope this helps

Thank you,

Sansui DVD/VCR remote control issue, VCR works/DVD does not-black


There should be a DVD/VCR button on the remote control which will toggle the machine from one playback source to another. If she has pressed the VCR button then the machine will only playback tapes & not show DVD's. Press this button & the DVD's should play. If you look closely at the front window of the machine it will show what mode it is in ie VCR or DVD, set this for the DVD to get it to play.

VCR stuck on menu screen


Thank you. I did fix the problem. Reviewed the instruction manual for the Samsung VCR and removed the SAFE reading on the VCR by just holding down the TV-VCR button on the RCA universal remote for several seconds which then released the frozen menu screen. From there I was able to reprogram the TV using the instructions and codes for the RCA universal remote. I still have to reprogram the VCR.

DVD/VCR combo player won't work


I had a similar problem and corrected it with a solution found on another site. Try hitting the I/P button on the remote which controls whether "Interlaced" or "Progressive Scan" is used to display the image on the TV. Mine worked when "Interlaced" was used. but no picture was displayed when "Progressive Scan" was used. The I/P button toggles between the two settings.
