I am trying to record a program in EP mode but when it records it returns back to SP mode. How can I set the tape for EP without it returning to SP?

Most VCR's have a default recording setting for recording speed or other settings. It's just a question of finding the right menu. Have a good look around the menus. However the VCR might default to SP after recording in EP, however the playback should switch to EP when playing.

Rca vcr will not take tape

Thanks for the info! . If you can not set the time using buttons, and it does not respond to the menus via the remote control, and the display flashes dashes, it sounds like your microprocessor (controller) chip has gone bad, and the power-on boot is failing, so nothing happens. . Your VCR is very dead. . It blew a single transistor in a very bad place. . Slipping or broken belts are fixable, broken processors are not. Some other broken parts are fixable, but not many. VCRs were made to be repaired in the old days, but not for long. There is a Johnson VCR repair down the street from me, he keeps old dead ones for parts, so he can fix most anything (people often give him their VCRs for free once they hear what it will cost to fix it). Repairs start at about $250, so I just buy a new one when one of mine fails (I have about 4 of them, 2 of which are dead, and I have fixed two of them). . Note - parts from one model can rarely be used in another model, so a repair shop can only replace parts using parts from other broken machines. The spinny video head is the exception to that rule, and some of the switches too. . VCR repair parts are usually available for 2-3 years, so if it is a recent purchase, you may be able to get it fixed, but VCR parts are a bit like car parts in that the individual parts would cost way more than the VCR cost, without including labor fees to put them together. . If you just bought it, return it. . If you have a warranty, use that (if you want to pay their fees for S&H and there may be an additional fee).

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 :)

Panasonic NV SJ205 changing RF settings

Your VCR has input to record video-audio signal. Here is 2 options to record program in vcr.
1= You need to hook up video-audio cable at Monitor Out in TV and video-audio in at VCR. select Line-1 or Line-2 (where you hook up cable) in vcr and insert cassette with Record Tab intact, VCR is ready to record TV program. select desired channel on tv and hit record button of vcr, recording will start.
2= Plug RF antenna / cable wire in RF In of vcr and tune desired channel in vcr (get help of vcr's user manual for that) and push record button to start record directly in vcr.
Have further query, let me know please.

My VCR tapes skip or only play in fast forward

If you are recording the tapes in a slow speed, then I would suspect that the tracking pulse is not being recorded properly. Since this is a new VCR, return it for an exchange. One of the recording heads is bad.
