If you are at all mechanically inclined, open the cover and see what is happening when you insert the cassette. This is not rocket science - you may see what the problem is. At one point the loading mechanism engages and takes over when you insert the cassette. Dont touch any metal parts!
It is possible that the mechanism is out of mode as the front cassette loading mechanism and the tape forward loading mechanism have gone out of sync. Now it is important that the MODE of the system control is in the correct parking.
Hence I feel that the VCR must be opened and the mechanism reset-ted. Make sure that the tape loading has come back to the correct parking and also the cassette loading has returned, other wise remove the mechanism and reset.
Pro-Tect Plus™ Locking Feature
To disable VCR usage or to protect set timer recordings, the unit can be locked so that the
buttons on the VCR or remote control don’t work.
• To Lock: Press and hold either the remote control’s ON•OFF or VCR button until SAFE
appears in the display to indicate Pro-Tect Plus is active. SAFE also appears if the VCR is
turned on while the feature is activated.
• To Unlock: Press and hold either the remote control’s ON•OFF or VCR button until SAFE
disappears from the front panel display. Unlocking is the only way to use the VCR.
What model of VCR do you have? is it a GE
In the mean time try this:
Unplug it from the wall for about a minute and then plug it in again. If this does not work, hold the VCR button down for 5-8 seconds this works on some units.
Let me know if this works for you.
