Most likely, the tape has been coded with a "R" rating or something that the Vchip in the TV/VCR is blocking due to a prior ratings lock. Look up model or call service and find master reset code, like 0000 or similiar to get VCR vchip back to factory default of no locks.

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.

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?

Hi Juzzy I fixed my unit with a universal remote ( can buy them at electrical store) or borrow a friends key in 0061 (this worked on my VH-605 ) on the new remote and hit play and away you go !!

On my RCA remote I push on and hold the on/off button until the SAFE goes off. Maybe that will work with another remote. Hope this helps.
