You can find a digital copy of the manual here (check out the "Operating Instructions" to be exact). The protect mode os actually a method of the system "protecting" itself from short circuiting, if for some reason any speaker wires are crossed, such as taped wires have been knocked loose and are now touching, this feature will be triggered.

If this is still coming up after all wires have been disconnected then it's likely the system has actually been shorted out and/or there's an actual hardware problem. You could probably have this repaired but at the cost of systems nowadays it'd probably be cheaper to buy another system. Note though, you're speakers may still be good so you might could try buying something off ebay and reusing the Sony speakers, which imo, are a great contribution to what makes the system great.

I would like simple steps to transfer VHS to DVD on my Toshiba DVR620KY. I want to copy with the unit alone. Would appreciate your help. Thanks.


Hi ,

Please follow the instructions below to record from VHS to DVD. You may not be able to record from some pre-recorded VHS cassettes due to copyight protection embedded into the recording. You should stick some tape over the copy-protection tab on cassettes prior to recording if the tab has been removed. On some cassettes, there may be a slide switch which needs to be moved to the record/rec position. All pre-recorded cassettes will have the copy-protection tab removed.

1. Switch on the TV and DVD/VCR and select the correct input on the TV for the player.
2. Set the player for the recording direction, i.e. VCR to DVD . . .

- Press the SETUP key on the Toshiba remote to open the on-screen menu
- Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to highlight GENERAL SETTING then press ENTER
- Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to highlight RECORDING then press ENTER
- Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to highlight DUBBING MODE then press ENTER
- Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to highlight VCR > DVD then press ENTER
- Press the SETUP key again to close the on-screen menu

3. Press VCR to select VCR mode.
4. Insert the cassette you wish to record and fast-forward or rewind it to the position where you want to start recording from. Allow at least 5 seconds extra if not starting the recording from the beginning of a cassette.
5. Press PLAY then press PAUSE immediately.
6. Press DVD to select DVD mode
7. Insert a blank DVD
8. Press the REC MODE button to select the recording mode (XP / SP / LP, etc)
9. Press the DUBBING key to start the recording.

You can watch the VCR while it's recording. When you reach the point where you want the recording to end, press the STOP key. You do not need to repeat step 2 every time you record. The player will stay in VCR > DVD recording mode unless you change it.

Hopefully, you will now be able to record from VCR to DVD. If you need further assistance, please let me know.

Regards,
BElectric

DVD player turns on; but apperently will NOT play the movie after we put it in... HELP!!!


I had the same issue and could have kicked myself in the ***! Make sure the AV slide switch is in the out position or it will not play at all. As soon as you switch from IN to OUT it will work properly.

Panasonic DVD player stuck in safe mode


Just got off with the Panasonic people. You have to turn it on, then hold down the VCR play button and channel up button at the same time until the unit turns off. This will reset the whole player. Then turn it back on & it should open!

I was moving around my large woofer speaker last night and then all of a sudden the unit went into protection mode. I tried all the various solutions posted on here and nothing worked. Then I went back to my speaker connections on the woofer and unplugged them and plugged them in again and it seems to be ok now. Very annoying problem. Can I suggest unplugging all the speaker cables and replugging them back in. Also another solution may have been holding down the power button when powering up the unit. Give all the above a try.

Dual screen car solution dvd player with games


Considering the DVD player is inside of the unit, and the unit will not play a DVD (I am assuming you put in a DVD) while in DVD mode, the conclusion I would draw would be that the unit is defective and should be returned. To give details to this deduction: DVD Mode has power, just is not producing an image. --Known because it can play games.
