Our VCR is turning off within seconds of being turned on. It has a red rectangle that appears on the screen. It does not say that the machine is locked. And there is a wheel that is moving for those seconds that it's turned on. What can we do? Is it something that can be solved? Thanks!

It looks like the red triangle might be an indication that there is a fault. It could be something to with the mechanism. I would take a look inside the unit by taking off the top cover. The unit shuts down to prevent further damage.

SOURCE: "SAFE"

Greetings Spock! Although I worked for an authorized rca service depot for 12 years, and worked on many, I can't remember the solution to your problem, and Thompson Consumer Electronics (RCA/GE) don't even accknowledge they ever sold vcr's..I went to RCA.com and your model comes up as "does not exist"...Anyway...I know I've worked on that model, and if you have the book, check the section about parental lock, or Key lock...your RCA could very well be Samsung inside, and if so press and hold the tv/vcr button for 5 seconds and that will release the key lock feature. It is there so if you set the timer, or just don't want the kids messing with it, you can lock all the key functions, and the unit will do nothing except display "safe" Hope this helps...Live long & prosper!

Once the VCR is turned on, it turns itself off.


If there is a mechanism fault on the VCR then the VCR will shut itself down. It sounds like the mechanism might be jammed, it's trying to move to the right position, when power is applied but can't so it stops. One thing that might be wrong is the mode switch might be faulty. This will cause all sorts of thing to happen, including putting on the timer record light even when none has been set.

Dark Translucent Rectangle appears in front of picture


Go into the customer menu and find the "closed captions" heading. Within the closed caption you will find "TEXT". If you turn off closed captions or the text, whichever you menu lets you do, your rectangle will go away. Hope this helps

Something wrong


A jammed or defective VCR can cause this symptom if the TV is turning itself off within about 15 seconds of turn on. Otherwise, it could be anything from a bad capacitor in the power supply to a shorted component in the High Voltage/deflection circuits. In other words, time to replace it.
