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?

SOURCE: I have RCA VR 646HF. My remote fell between sofa

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.

Your RCA universal remote control may not be able to perform all functions of your Magnavox player. In extreme cases, you may only be able to control on-off. A Philips universal remote control might be a better choice.

Trying to use the vcr to record a serveillance camera not sure what cables I need to do this

By the look of the VCR it should be simple to connect the camera to it, using the front socket. As long as the camera has a RCA video out socket. You then just get a standard RCA cable and the yellow coded plug goes into the video out on the camera and video in on the VCR. Both should be coded yellow. If you need the sound then the other two Red (right) White (left) are audio. If the camera is mono put it in the right socket. Your not very clear on the cause of the record failure, but if there is no picture set the channel selector (when setting the record) to the AV socket that the camera is connected. Also check that the PDF control is set to OFF.

I have dish network need code to record to vcr . three diget code. wv206a

You may want to try a method called a Power Scan to program this. The steps are included below:

Power Scan DVD VCR:
1.) Press and hold the correct VCR button (about six seconds) until all mode button backlights come on, then release.
2.) Press 500 pound (#) then record three times.
3.) With the desired equipment on, press and hold the VCR/DVD button until all mode button backlights illuminate (about 3 seconds), then release.
4.) Press and release the Power button.
5.) Press the Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the desired equipment. If the code for the equipment comes up, the equipment will power off.
6.) Press the POUND (#) button
If this doesn't work repeat steps 3-6 if the lights at the top of the remote blink rapidly then you have tried all codes possible.

Unable to operate recorder at all.

When you are turning the recorder on it is blocking the signal for cable going to the TV. Your TV will need to be on channel 3 or 4 depending on what the dvd/vcr player channel output is set to. This is why your tv is asking you to re-scan. It is losing the video signal because the dvd/vcr is taking over. The reason why the vcr with the button on the remote is because the vcr button is changing the function of the buttons on the remote to vcr. Even though the dvd/vcr is one unit they still will act like two seperate components independent of each other. They have seperate power buttons and the dvd player part may need to be hooked up seperately with rca cables to work.

Rca tv/vcr combo model T13208

Recording speed is the last item on the timer programming. SP or SLP. Some remotes have a button that will allow you to change the speed, when recording manually.

Change recording speed

The only solution to this problem is to buy a new remote from the manufacturer. Aftermarket remotes that I have looked at: RCA, PHILLIPS, SONY, etc do not have a speed select button for the VCR. (which IMHO is stupid) Come on aftermarket people- it cant be that hard to program a speed select button!
