SOURCE: Opening the case of a JVC Remote Control

Not having seen that particular one, remote cases usually have a couple screws under the battery to lock the case together and then a number of plastic tabs around the perimiter that hold the joint closed. find the screws (sometimes they hide them under labels) - I don't know what it is about screws that manufacturers don't like to show. Either think they are not cosmetic or don't want us take-it-apart maniacs to get in. Anyway, get the screws loose then (this is the hard part) carefully pry open the case joint, feeling where and how the tabs snap out and then be careful not to have everything inside go flying when the last one lets loose. Almost impossible to not leave little gouge marks in the joint.
Hope Ya Fis It!

I think youre talking about safeguard mode.

Here is the manual if you don't have one:

http://resources.jvc.com/Resources/00/00/94/LYT1354-001A.pdf

See page 51. There should be an error indication number as well.

SOURCE: JVC HR-S9500U

OK, found the problem. Another website had the same question on the HR-S9600U, the 9500's replacement:

http://www.cippico.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?p=528&sid=ce3dfc944e4539181195720b836021f4

I checked my vcr, and, sure enough, there was a sort of clicking sound coming from the drum area immediately before the unit would go into "Auto" mode. I removed the complete drum assembly, and tore into the little gearbox, and found the two black, plastic gears with inside pinions that drive the metal screws to change the video head position had each cracked and were slipping on the shafts. This caused the gearbox to bind up.

Using a jeweler's screwdriver, I roughed up the metal shaft and the inside of the gears where they slip onto the shafts, and glued them on using a two-part epoxy. I then re-assembled it all, sorta setting the screws about two turns after their contact with the base of the upper drum. Now, upon power-up, the drum adjusting motor toggles one direction, then the other, and the unit stays on. Playback seems OK.

So, there you go. Yay me....

SAFE


SAFE is the same as PROTECT in other models. It means that an incorrect voltage has been detected, and the unit has been forced to safe mode (forced standby) to prevent further damage to internal component.

Safe mode can be triggered by a bad connector as well as by a blown component inside the player. Check all cables connected to the unit and disconnect power cord for about ten minutes. If that does not work, then the player must be repaired by a technician or replaced.

Combos are getting more and more expensive and difficult to find. This kind of unit is usually worth repairing.

Try first the general troubleshooting steps suggested above. Here a link resuming the basic procedure (protect and safe mode are the same): Unit in protect mode.

Regards.

Ginko.

How do i remove the remote from safe mode?


Safe Mode is a diagnostic tool in the Remote used for troubleshooting purposes. If the words "Safe Mode" or "Safe Mode Requested" appear on the remote, complete the following steps:

1. Ensure the Remote is in "Safe Mode Requested" by taking out the batteries, and disconnecting the remote from the USB cable.
2. Hold down the Off button and plug the remote into the USB.
3. Continue holding down the Off button for another 10 seconds. The remote should then display the words "Safe Mode Requested".
4. With the unit in "Safe Mode Requested", re-install the firmware by clicking Support on your home page.
5. Click Firmware in the Downloads section and follow the online instructions to upgrade the firmware.
6. Once the firmware upgrade is complete, click Update My Remote.
7. Insert new batteries into the remote.

My Logitech Remote 550 is Locked in the Safe Mode. How do I get it our of Safe Mode.


Doing a firmware upgrade is the BEST way to recover from Safe Mode. A remote may go into safe mode itself for a variety of reasons.

However, if the remote fails to communicate with the PC when it is stuck in Safe Mode, please try the following.

1. Remove the batteries from the remote & check for any stuck buttons especially the Power button that may be causing the remote to stay in this state.
2. If it still will not apply firmware to get out of safe mode, then still without batteries hold down the #2 button while plugging into USB, and it should exit Safe Mode, and say something similar to 'Firmware Upgrade Success'. Even though it says this, still perform the Firmware upgrade since it was stuck in Safe Mode to begin with.

Hope this helps

Harmony 550 in safe mode


Hi There,
To get out of safe mode, do a firmware update from your PC. This will install the latest firmware and your configuration. Safe mode is a bootstrap designed to recover from firmware corruption issues so about the only thing it knows how to do is reload firmware.
However, if the remote fails to communicate with the PC when it is stuck in Safe Mode, please try the following.

1. Remove the batteries from the remote & check for any stuck buttons especially the Power button that may be causing the remote to stay in this state.
2. If it still will not apply firmware to get out of safe mode, then still without batteries hold down the #2 button while plugging into USB, and it should exit Safe Mode, and say something similar to 'Firmware Upgrade Success'. Even though it says this, still perform the Firmware upgrade since it was stuck in Safe Mode to begin with.
