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.

Stuck in "safe" mode

Hold down power on vcr/dvd unit or the remote for 8 seconds. It turns the SAFE mode on or off.

There should be a button on your remote labeled "safe." Press that, and it will turn the safe mode off. It's on the second row from the bottom on my remote.
