Unable to operate Matsui VP 9408 Video Player

Screen flashes "Protected".
It is some time since we used this player and we must have put in wrong security code. How do we get beyond this "Protected" screen please?

Many DVD trays use a belt to make it come in and out. If it breaks or falls off the tray will not move. Look inside see if you can see it. If you find it measure the diameter of the belt in mm. The put these words into google: "drive belt ??mm". You should find, it don't worry if your a few mm out.

Matsui VP 9501 0P VCR - Digital TV ready?

The converter boxes can hook right up to any vcr on the antennae in jack. They work just the same. I like using vcrs because you can hook up anything to them and then run it to tv. It's great!

I have lost my manual for my Matsui VP 9406 Videoplus VCR player/recorder and cant remember how it works now. Can you help me please :)

Matsui is the brand name for Currys and Dixons. You should try them.
Currys have an online department called Currys Partmaster. You should be able to find it with google.

When i put my dvd in the video a message comes up on my screen saying this dvd is unauthorised ot play.I got the dvd from america and its a region 1.can you help.

Your DVD is region code protected. Check the back panel of your DVD player, where the connectors are, and you will find the region code. If the region code of your player is not "1" then you cannot play the DVD.
However, the region code can be unlocked, if you provide me with the player's exact model number.

The region code sticker looks like this one of this:

Hi i need drivers for my matsui vcr so i can link it to my pc .the model is VP 9407A

You cannot get a driver for a VCR, to link it to your PC you need to have either a TV card or a video capture card fitted to your PC then you can link the a cable from the VCR to this card either by using a component or composite cable or Scart to composite/ component cable depending of what type of input your card has, then the software driver for the capture card would be insatalled onto your PC. This enables you to play video through your PC either to watch or convert onto a disc etc.

Bought MATSUI VX1107A VCR and promised it was working bought remote but PIN protected Can anyone help or maybe tell me where I can get an instruction manual for this model Cheers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I bought the Matsui VX1107A many years ago and recently pulled it out of storage for use in the childs bedroom.
I unluckily put the pin in it three times which were incorrect, only to see Protected across the screen.
I then trawled internet sites as I certainly wasn't going to part with my hard earned money to MasterCare for them to come and reset it.
Then I came across a site that told me to pull the plug out the wall for an hour then plug it back in, then switch the vcr on then press the up arrow and the record buttons together at the same time for 5 or so seconds, then hurray it was unlocked but not set back to factory settings so I got another 3 try's of entering my pin again which i got correct, so if you know the pin then you can try this.
Failing that I have the manual which came with the vcr if you tell me the section your looking for I'll scan and send the part to yourself but you would have to send an email address to send the document.
Hope this helps
