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

VCR stuck on menu screen


Thank you. I did fix the problem. Reviewed the instruction manual for the Samsung VCR and removed the SAFE reading on the VCR by just holding down the TV-VCR button on the RCA universal remote for several seconds which then released the frozen menu screen. From there I was able to reprogram the TV using the instructions and codes for the RCA universal remote. I still have to reprogram the VCR.
