Question about Televison & Video
OK what you have to do is access the "Service menu" this should be in your manual, really you need to find yourself a Service manual, for your exact make and model, as well as your user manual. Inside these manual are the instructions to do this. Please find and download the manuals and follow the instructions. Google...... name-of-your-unit SERVICE MANUAL download.

I would like to help you unlock your JVC combo unit stuck in SAFE mode.
I have to guess somewhat, since I don't have your model number in front of me: if my suggestions don't work, please feel free to post this make and model information, as it will help us help you.
This 'safe' mode business is designed for locking display units at stores etc so customers can't 'mess' with them too much.
Generally speaking, the rule is you hold down a button on your remote (for 5-10 seconds) to unlock the TV's functions. If your remote has a 'display' button, start with that. If it has an 'Info' button, try that next. If still no joy, try the same sequence using buttons on the front of the TV instead of the remote.
(Note: fancy remotes like logitech harmony universals also have a unrelated safe mode of their own, but I believe I understood you correctly that it is the TV's display stating that it is feeling 'SAFE', and that you are using the standard jvc vcr remote control, yes?)
Oh, and if you haven't tried it already, while you are waiting for me or my brethren to get back to you if these solutions didn't work, unplug your TV from the wall for 10-15 minutes - this resets many electronic brains more often than not.
I hope that helps.
