The menu screen displays but it wont play tapes

Do the tapes play in the machine, but you don't get a picture. Or do they not even start to play?

If they play and you don't see a picture then you need to clean the VCR head. You can get a tape head cleaning tape for this.

If the VCR won't play a tape at all, please describe in more detail what happens when you insert a tape for playback and I or someone else at Fixya will help you further.

GE VG4270 vcr power turns off quickly when recording or playing a tape

Have someone look inside---if tape is not loading all the way against the video heads or tape does not move in play-rewind-FF then there is a problem with the transport mechanism which is what performs these functions.

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.

Problem with philips magnavox vcr


Most Philips/Magnavox VCR uses "PL" to indicate that the unit is on Parental Lock. Push and hold the power button on the remote control and wait for the unit to power up. This should be within 7 seconds.

Additionally, most (but not all) Philips/Magnavox VCRs are sub-contracted to Funai. Pls try here for Funai downloads of user's manual.

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.

Tape stuck in an Emerson Model EWV401 VCR

take it to someone who has experience in removing stuck VCR tapes or you will be paying a lot more for a new VCR. They won't charge you much....IF they even charge you.

How Do I use timed recording?

Is this a problem of the VCR not doing a timed record at all, or of it recording only snow (no signal) or perhaps the wrong channel? If the first, then it would point to incorrect setup of the timed record session or that the clock time & date settings are incorrect... the VCR setup stuff. Also, once the timed recording is setup, there is often one additional button to push to actually ready the VCR. Older VCRs, were put into the timed mode by power off. If VCR isn't recording anything (it is coming on to record, but no signal), then it has to do with hookup of the VCR. Depending on your cable system, the VCR can only record the channel the cable box is tuned to. Again, depending on the system, the VCR needs to be cabled in between the cable box and your TV (cable box RF out to VCR RF in, VCR RF out to TV RF in) RF=ant. Exact cabling will vary.
