DVD/VCR Combo Stuck in VCR Mode

I can't get it to switch back to DVD mode from the remote or by actually hitting the DVD/VCR button on the unit.  I've power cycled, unplugged and replugged in the device, all to no avail.  It works as a functioning VCR, but I can't even eject the DVD that's in it, let alone burn anything.  Is there a trick to getting this setting to respond?  I got the unit (a Toshiba DVR610 1080p Upconverting Tunerless VHS DVD Recorder) for Christmas and it's been like this for over a month now. Help!

Turn off the progressive scan mode?


is this question about the progressive scan when going to dvd mode more than likely the switch to control your p scan is on the back of your vcr/dvd player near the center look on the back and flick the switch to off usually the switches are just black moving left and right if not go into your menu and look for progressive scan mode if its not directly on the menu it is more than likely in the settings folder.Also if your remote is like the one i posted just click the p.scan button

Hello, my remote for my Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder / VCR Combo recently stopped working, and whenever I press a button on the remote, I get a message on the display as "RC1" I'm guessing...


Actually, you are sort of correct, in a sense, RC1 means remote command mode 1 (the default mode of your combo unit). There is one way you can try to fix this:

Remove the batteries from the remote, press any button on it to clear its existing memory buffer, then re-insert them or replace them with new ones. While unit is on (no DVDs or tapes in it), point the remote at it - press and hold 1 and ENTER/OK buttons together for 10 seconds, then release.

This should (in most cases) restore full remote command operation to your combo unit - if when you press a channel button on it, and the unit's front channel changes, the remote is now functioning as it is meant to.


The good news is this will constitute any workshop repairs or costs (except perhaps new batteries for the remote if required).

I hope this helps a bit.

VHS won't work


Had the same problem on my JVC vcr/dvd combo unit.
You need to turn off the timer function. I did this by making sure my remote was in the "VHS" mode...turn the swith from TV to the right (found on the remote in the upper left corner...an then hit the "vcr" button. Then point the remote at the VCR unit and hit the No. 4 button (timer turns off). Your unit should not have the red timer displayed and you should be able to play your tapes okay.

Hope this helps.

Do you know why the tape was stuck? How did you get it out? On most vcr's there's a mode switch connected to the mechanics of the vcr. If the mode switch isn't in stop position, the unit will try to get it there and shut off if it can't. Bad belts, bad idler wheel, dirty mode switch, mechanical timing off (maybe due to forcing a stuck tape out?)... all these can cause this.

Remote doesn't work


Slide the bottom part of the remote control down. Switch the bottom right button to DVD 1. There might be a white sticker that covers it so remove the sticker first. Then hold down the "Enter" button and the "1" button down at the same time for a few seconds. That should make the remote work again.
