Err on display when insert tape, no functions work.

Two things. First there is some damage to the tape transport mechanism. Only a good look around will confirm this. Secondly a faulty mode switch.

Stuck in safe mode

To begin with someone needs to open and look inside the unit to see if the disc is out of position or jammed, this could trigger the safe mode.

No video display from Sony SLV-ED10 Video Record Player

The video head is probably dirty, buy a blank VHS 120 tape, set speed to sp about 2 hours running time, and let the tape run. This works like a dry cleaning tape and is safe, repeat up to 3 times if required. I do not recommend wet tapes to ******* the video head.

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.

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.

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.
