Question about RCA Universal Remote Control

VCR stuck on menu screen

While trying to reset the time for daylight savings on my RCA universal remote, I accessed the menu screen for the VCR but **w can**t leave it or manipulate it and the VCR instead of showing a time reads "SAFE". I can**t get anything to move, including the TV **w. The menu screen for the VCR stays stuck, the VCR reads 'SAFE" where it usually shows the time, and there it remains ** matter what I try.

Any help? ***** saw the "SAFE" on the VCR before. Can only work the TV **w manually.

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.

Acessing Menu with universal remote


We used a One4All model URC3021BOO remote. We programmed BOTH the TV function and the DVD/vcr button with code 0807.  To access the menu PRESS TV then MENU button then DVD/VCR button will allow you to change menu functions using left and right and select buttons. *TV button will access Menu screen BUT NO menu functions. * DVD/VCR button will NOT access menu screen but WILL control menu functions if menu is already displayed. May work with other sharp products, or other universal remotes? These original (RRMCG1330PESA) remotes run 38.00+ to buy new so try this FIRST!

Please follow the instructions given below... =)

daylight saving time and time zone.

• Select “CLOCK” from “SYSTEM SETUP”. For the
procedure, see steps 1 to 3 in “Using the SETUP
MENU”

OTHER
SETUP MENU
3 Press  or  to select the desired submenu and
press ENTER.
The screen for the selected submenu will appear.



CLOCK (manually)
You can manually set the date, year and present time
with the remote control.
Ex.: Setting the clock to “10:20AM” October, 30th, 2004.
1 Select “CLOCK” and press ENTER.
01/01/04 12:00AM
2 Select the desired items using  or  (month,
date, year, hour, minute and AM/PM) then press
ENTER.
3 Press  or  to set the value of the selected
item.
• For the minutes, press  or  once to set the time
minute by minute, or hold down either of buttons
for several seconds to set the time in 10-minute
intervals.
10/30/04 10:200AM
4 Repeat steps 2 and 3 to set the date, year and
present time, and press ENTER. The SETUP MENU
will close.
This completes clock time setting.
AUTO CLOCK
You can automatically set the clock by turning “ON” the
AUTO CLOCK function.
When you want to set the auto clock function to “OFF”,
select “AUTO CLOCK”, press ENTER and select “OFF”
from the list.

Auto clock setting
Preparation:
You must connect the antenna or cable before connecting
the AC cord to the power source.
Wait 30 minutes with the power turned off, after the
antenna or cable is connected, for the auto clock
feature to activate.
After the clock is set automatically, you may have to set
the time zone and daylight saving time. (See page 26.)
Press STANDBY/ON to turn on the DVD/VCR after the
auto clock operation completed.
• When shipped from the factory, the “AUTO CLOCK”
option is set to “ON” position.
• If you turn the DVD/VCR on during auto clock
setting, the clock is not set.
• After a power failure or disconnection of the power
plug, the clock setting will be lost. In this case, wait
30 minutes before turning the DVD/VCR on.
• With cable box connection, if the auto clock setting
is unsuccessful, select the PBS channel carrying
the XDS information, then turn the DVD/VCR off.
After 30 minutes, turn the DVD/VCR on.
• If the clock is not set automatically, set the clock
manually.


STANDARD TIME (Time zone)
In the rare event that you live within the broadcast range
of two stations in two different time zones, the DVD/VCR
may recognize the wrong station for the auto clock set.
To correct the situation:
Select “STANDARD TIME” and select the time zone from
the list below.
Selectable time zones and correction times
ATLANTIC: GMT – 4 hours
(GMT: Greenwich Mean Time)
EASTERN: GMT – 5 hours
CENTRAL: GMT – 6 hours
MOUNTAIN: GMT – 7 hours
PACIFIC: GMT – 8 hours
ALASKA: GMT – 9 hours
HAWAII: GMT – 10 hours
AUTOMATIC: AUTO SET
Note
• When shipped from the factory, the “TIME ZONE” is
set to “AUTOMATIC”.
• After making the auto clock setting, in some cases
the clock may display another time zone. You can
correct the clock by selecting your time zone
setting above.
• When the clock is not set or you set the clock
manually, the time zone setting is not available.
DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME
You can set the clock to daylight saving time automatically
or manually.
To select daylight saving time, select “DAYLIGHT
SAVING TIME” and select “ON”, while to cancel the
daylight saving time, select “OFF”.
ON: For manual setting (forward 1 hour)
OFF: For manual setting (back 1 hour)
AUTOMATIC: For automatic setting (read XDS in
the signal)
Note
• When you want to set daylight saving time, on the
first Sunday in April you set it to “ON”, and on the
last Sunday in October you set it to “OFF”.
• When shipped from the factory, the “DAYLIGHT
SAVING TIME” option is set to “AUTOMATIC”.
• When the clock is not set, the daylight saving time
setting is not available.
• When there is no daylight saving time in your area,
always select “OFF”.

Setting the clock/time


There should be a menu button on the remote which will get you into the various advanced programming functions. Many/most of the late VCRs cannot be programmed, time set with the buttons on the VCR itself.

You do not need the remote - you can access the menu manually.
  1. Take out (eject) the tape;
  2. press the 2 Channel buttons ("up" and "down") simultaneously;
  3. follow the menu as easily as you did when you did have the remote and you can change all the clock settings;
  4. press the FF button for >, the REW button for <, the PLAY button for UP and the STOP button for DOWN.
  5. when finished, exit the menu with the simultaneous pressing of the Channel UP & DOWN buttons.
