I just had the same problem and found a solution on the internet that worked. Hopefully you still have the VCR's remote control. Press and hold either the on/off, VCR1 or VCR2 button on the remote. I pressed the VCR1 button and held it for about 5-7 seconds. It released the lock and worked fine afterwards. The lock is some kind of childlock devise.

Per manual: PRO-TECT PLUS TM LOCKING To disable the usage of the VCR, or to protect your timer recordings, you can lock the VCR so that the buttons on the VCR or remote won't work. To Lock: Pressand hold either the remote control's ON-OFF, VCR1 or VCR2 button (whichever controls your VCR). LOCK appears in the display when the feature is activated. LOCK appears if you attempt to turn on the VCR while the feature is on. To unlock the feature and turn on the VCR: Pressand hold either the remote's ON-OFF, VCR1, or VCR2 button (whichever VCR button your VCR is set to respond to).

How do I stop my ProScan VCR from recording?


I need more information, but if you find you are accidentally recording over tapes that you never want to record over, break off the record tab on the cassette itself.
If you do ever need to record over a tape with the record tab broken off, simply place tape over the tab hole.
If you don't mind voiding the warranty, you can install a record safety switch either in series or parallel (depending on the sensor type) with the record tab sensor inside the VCR, or in series with the record button itself.
Hide the switch in the back of the unit so nobody finds it.

Samsung v7000 DVD/VCR .....VCR ejects tape when record is pressed


Does this happen with other tapes? If so then the micro switch could be stuck in the open position, try to give it a clean with a blast of air duster first then check the contacts on the switch. If it is happening with just this specific tape the the record tab (although in place) may be "soft" try putting a piece of tape tightly across the tab & try to record.

Doesn't give me the option to change the channel when timer recording


If you are recording something on the VCR, it won't let you change the channel. If not, you need to make sure the RC is set to the vcr in question (mine has VCR1 and VCR2)

You can set it up the way I've done for years...put cable line into VCR first, the VCR to TV..you then can watch and record 2 separate channels.

VCR doesn't record since Comcast installed digital box


Try this..Run cable line into VCR in, cable from VCR out to box, then cable from box to TV..this might work...I have done this for YEARS and it is never failed. You can then watch and record 2 things at once.

Proscan vcr psvr70


Sounds like it's wired up wrong...try this:
take cable line to VCR in, VCR out to cable/receiver box(if you have one) then box to TV...it sounds like the vcr is getting the channels from the box and not the vcr...you will need to have the vcr scan the channels (round in the settings menu) You will also be able to watch and record 2 different things.
