Pro-Tect Plus™ Locking Feature
To disable VCR usage or to protect set timer recordings, the unit can be locked so that the
buttons on the VCR or remote control don’t work.
• To Lock: Press and hold either the remote control’s ON•OFF or VCR button until SAFE
appears in the display to indicate Pro-Tect Plus is active. SAFE also appears if the VCR is
turned on while the feature is activated.
To Unlock: Press and hold either the remote control’s ON•OFF or VCR button until SAFE
disappears from the front panel display. Unlocking is the only way to use the VCR.

The cassette will have to be manually extracted. The "safe" mode simply means that the machine has detected a problem with the mechanism, usually related to the shuttle function not taking place....accordianman

SOURCE: SAFE

Hold down the power button (or the vcr button if on a combination remote) for six seconds. This will unlock the child lock feature of the vcr.

Vcr keeps saying safe


Try this: (actually found in user manual...)

Pro-Tect Plus™ (Child Lock) Feature

This feature is useful to tamper proof your timer recordings from unwanted changes

and/or protect the VCR from mis-operation by other users in the household.

To Lock the VCR

Press and hold POWER or VCR on the remote for

approximately six seconds to turn on the Pro-Tect Plusª

feature.

SAFE appears in the VCR front panel to let you know the

feature is activated.

To Unlock the VCR

Press and hold VCR button on the remote for approximately

six seconds to unlock the VCR.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

VTH6400U Thompson VCR on pressing 'on' button shows SAFE


1)First press the button marked 'LOCK' on the remote control (left of center)
if that doesn't work
2)Press the button marked VCR on the left top of remote control.

If it is still locked it means some one has disabled the remote control by pressing the CH+ button and Play button simultaneously. To release this, Carry out the same again ie..press both the CH+ button and the Play button together.
This should cure the problem.

Safe


There should be a button on your remote labeled "safe." Press that, and it will turn the safe mode off. It's on the second row from the bottom on my remote.

"SAFE"


Greetings Spock! Although I worked for an authorized rca service depot for 12 years, and worked on many, I can't remember the solution to your problem, and Thompson Consumer Electronics (RCA/GE) don't even accknowledge they ever sold vcr's..I went to RCA.com and your model comes up as "does not exist"...Anyway...I know I've worked on that model, and if you have the book, check the section about parental lock, or Key lock...your RCA could very well be Samsung inside, and if so press and hold the tv/vcr button for 5 seconds and that will release the key lock feature. It is there so if you set the timer, or just don't want the kids messing with it, you can lock all the key functions, and the unit will do nothing except display "safe" Hope this helps...Live long & prosper!
