I have a GoVideo DVR 4300 that has been child locked. I have lost the remote control. Is there any way to unlock it with out the remote?


According to page 16 of the owner's manual, you cannot disable child lock without the remote. Because you have lost the remote, the unit does not offer a manual way to disable that feature. I am not sure if a universal remote will allow you to enter the setup menu, and turn the child lock OFF. You could try that - it might work.

Or you could try contacting them:

Phone (480) 922-0896 or (800) 736-7679 (during business hours)
E-Mail customersupport@sonicblue.com
Web www.govideo.com or www.sonicblue.com

They may or may not be able to offer further assistance. The universal remote might help, if you cannot get the original replacement for your unit.

Personally, child lock in DVD players is a pointless and unnecessary extra feature that should not exist; it should really only apply to Blu-Ray/DVD recorders.

Hello. My problem is that it keeps saying" "S A F E"


Hello -


You've accidentally switched the Child Lock feature ON.


To de-activate the Child Lock on most GoVideo DVD/VCR players, press and hold the POWER button on the GoVideo remote control for about 10 seconds. The SAFE message should disappear and you should be able to use the player again.


(To activate the Child Lock again, press and hold the POWER button for about 10 seconds)


I can't be 100% certain this will work for you as you didn't include the model number of your player. If you need further assistance, or you don't have the original GoVideo remote, please reply to me with the model number of your player.


Hope this helps.


Regards,

BElectric

MY CHILD OF 3 YRS OLD ACCIDENTALLY PUT PARENTAL CONTROL ON MY DVD/VHS COMBO IS THERE ANY WAY TO UNLOCK IT


By parental control I don't know if you mean child lock. If that's the case you should be able to turn it off by pressing child lock on the remote control until off shows in the display window.

GoVideo DVR4175. The buttons on the unit will not work. Only works by using the remote. Did I push something on the remote to lock the unit? Thanks.

I cannot get my DVR4300 to go in to TV channel change mode while recording a program


Why not simply record a channel tuned into the vcr and use your tv remote to watch a channel tuned into your tv? that is how it is normaly done... don't forget a vcr/pvr/dvd recorder has it's own channels just like a tv does... just no screen of it's own the tv has of course it's own channels and in fact does not even need to be switched on in order for your recorder to record a program neither does the recorder need to be on to use your tv

I would like to download a manuel for the dvd/vcr for the govideo model # dvr4300 s# 236430005970 with remote DVD will not play get message. It is the 1030 model


Hi!

Try this link:

http://www.retrevo.com/support/GoVideo-DVR4300-DVD-Players-manual/id/1183bh642/t/2/

Make sure that the link doesn't "wrap" (IOW, make sure that the end of the link actually appears in the browser address bar, should the link not work. If it doesn't work, paste the end back on!)

You'll have to make an account at this site in order to download the manuals, but it is a free process and they have lots of manuals there. BTW, I tried to access this manual directly from GoVideo, but I had no luck getting their site up, assuming that it still works.

Good luck. Please let me know how this works, and please post a rating for me if you deem it appropriate.

Stuck in "safe" mode


Hold down power on vcr/dvd unit or the remote for 8 seconds. It turns the SAFE mode on or off.
