Question about RCA VR637HF VHS VCR
My boyfriend stepped on the tv/vcr remote and now the VCR says safe. I've tried holding down the power button and the VCR button and nothing works. its an RCA
Hello. Have you tried unplugging the power from the VCR for more than 24hrs? This may resolve the "safe-mode" feature going back to "default" and permit regular use after this amount of time elapses. That is kind of unusual for the stepping upon the remote to cause this?

After a storm, my RCA VCR said SAFE when you tried to play, FF, or do just about anything. First I unplugged it for a minute or two then plugged it back in. Didn't work. Still said SAFE. Took the advice from hyojo, only I just unplugged for 5 or so hours. Now it works fine. I guess the thing has a memory that lasts at least a few hours, so you have to unplug long enough for the memory to go away. DVDs and other digital media are great...but for reliability and universal playability...VHS is better for me. No format is perfect...but I've lost FAR more data on digital than I have with 40-plus years of analog recording. Instead of inventing a new DVD format every 16 months, why not perfect the ones that already exist? Mike Warden catfishB9@yahoo.com
