I have lost the remote control for my Emerson VCR model EUV 601. Is it possible to buy a replacement?

These folks have a broad range of originals which are not cheap but will give you all the features you had originally;
If you want to use a 'universal' remote, you may be disappointed. Before buying one of these, check the mfr.s website with the model number to see if your VCR is included. All features may not be supported in a 'universal' remote since none of them really are or ever can be.

Vcr keeps saying safe

Try this: (actually found in user manual...)

Pro-Tect Plus™ (Child Lock) Feature

This feature is useful to tamper proof your timer recordings from unwanted changes

and/or protect the VCR from mis-operation by other users in the household.

To Lock the VCR

Press and hold POWER or VCR on the remote for

approximately six seconds to turn on the Pro-Tect Plusª


SAFE appears in the VCR front panel to let you know the

feature is activated.

To Unlock the VCR

Press and hold VCR button on the remote for approximately

six seconds to unlock the VCR.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

When safe show on the screen, it actually means that the child lock feature is on.

All you have to do is press the child lock button again on the remote and it should flash "OFF" on the screen.

Hope you have the remote :)

Proscan vcr plus gold stuck in lock

I just had the same problem and found a solution on the internet that worked. Hopefully you still have the VCR's remote control. Press and hold either the on/off, VCR1 or VCR2 button on the remote. I pressed the VCR1 button and held it for about 5-7 seconds. It released the lock and worked fine afterwards. The lock is some kind of childlock devise.

Vcr locked

Hi Juzzy I fixed my unit with a universal remote ( can buy them at electrical store) or borrow a friends key in 0061 (this worked on my VH-605 ) on the new remote and hit play and away you go !!

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.
