SOURCE: VCR says safe
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?

I could not find the Users Manual for the VR636HF, but I did stumble across the Users Manual for the VR634HF. Find it here:
Page 49 talks about the Pro-Tec Plus Locking "Feature" whereby holding the VCR button for six seconds will lock and unlock the "SAFE" mode.
Page 38 & 39 are instructions and programming codes for the VR634HF remote. Maybe they will work with your VR636HF to get the TV control working again.

SOURCE: I have an older RCA
Allow me as someone who worked on VCRs from the time they were first introduced until they were phased out to offer you some information.
All the older units used rubber belts; the problem here is if the unit is used or NOT the belts get slack and loose original shape. A lot of the RCA units at one point were actually Hitachi inside and belt packs (all 4-6 belts) and or a rubber wheel or idler was included.
Most of them when you put a tape in the mechanism loads the tape and arms pull tape out of the cassette----if it does not do it properly the unit will shut down or not function.
Depending on the actual age of your unit you have two choices: open it up and look top and bottom for belts (find a belt off a pulley etc and you have found your problem).
You could then search for replacement belts but they may not even be available any more not to mention the rubber idler if it uses one.
Second option if you have a lot of tapes is to see if you can purchase a replacement unit (most likely it will also play DVDs).
Before you rate this information let me know what you find, I would rather you did not rate it at all if you are not happy with what I have told you.
You can make a comment here and I will see it.
