LG VHS GC480W - VCR 'safe mode'

My VCR is showing 'SAFE' on the display and will not allow us to record our shows.  I cannot find the handbook to find out how to turn the safe mode off. We have tried turning the VCR off to see if it will reset itself and pressed every button we can find, to no avail.

Your VCR is in child lock. Just press the LOCK button on the remote. I have the same machine.

Display shows SAFE, and vcr doesnt turn on.


You simply need to press and hold down the power button on your remote for 6-7 seconds. Doing this will take the VCR out of safe mode.

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.

Actually, it's an MW24FP3 VCR unresponsive


After Checking Toshiba FAQ, it turns out that the record button must be turned off to do anything, including playback.

Problem with DVD-VCR combo


I found if you disconnect the power and keep it off for thirty seconds or so to let it reboot, the "SAFE" problem disappears.
