Hold down the power button (or the vcr button if on a combination remote) for six seconds. This will unlock the child lock feature of the vcr.

Stuck in safe mode


To begin with someone needs to open and look inside the unit to see if the disc is out of position or jammed, this could trigger the safe mode.

I have RCA VR 646HF. My remote fell between sofa


I could not find the Users Manual for the VR636HF, but I did stumble across the Users Manual for the VR634HF. Find it here:

http://support.radioshack.com/support_video/doc59/59851.pdf

Page 49 talks about the Pro-Tec Plus Locking "Feature" whereby holding the VCR button for six seconds will lock and unlock the "SAFE" mode.

Page 38 & 39 are instructions and programming codes for the VR634HF remote. Maybe they will work with your VR636HF to get the TV control working again.

SAFE


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.

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.

Vcr will not work


Try pressing down the vcr or Aux button for a long time. Then try pressing down power button on remote for a long time. Try info or display button for long time. After I fiddled around with these for a long time it worked.
