You took a power SPIKE/SURGE, then the power went off, then on again. It might be fixable-at a cost. Happened to me when the electric company got their wires crossed while repairing a downed line. Actually melted my surge protector. Next time learn what I learned-buy a surge protcetor with the FASTEST response time.

I need the manufacture code for the panasonic PV-V4624S VCR so i can set it up through my dish network receiver. It should be a 3 digit code.


Try these codes, If they don't work there will be instructions for a Power Scan as well this should resolve this!
Codes: 734,856,855,868,869,870,871,872,873,882,813,765,840,841,639,699,663,714,715,716.
Power Scan:
1.) Press and hold the correct VCR button (about six seconds) until all mode button backlights come on, then release.
2.) Press 222 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 the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.
To verify the code works try several different functions for that equipment.

I don't recognize your first problem.  The "light to dark" issue I believe is intentionally engineered (mine does it too); it prevents recording DVDs on to tape.  Try running the DVD player directly to the TV.  Radio Shack used to have a box that would correct this issue too, you might check there.

Lost the remote, manually need to access Menu button


VCRs since the early '90s have limited function with the machine located controls, and a remote is necessary to get into most setup options, probably including the channel add/delete. Many VCRs do have an auto program mode which searches for active channels, but I'd guess this also is activated via remote. A universal remote which specifically has the capability of performing the advanced functions is probably available. Look here for an exact http://www.electronicadventure.us/panasonic.htm Part number is VSQS1418 according to this site for PV4501.

How to unactivate 'vcr lock' ?


Generally, if you aim the remote at the VCR with the STOP button pressed, for around 10 seconds, the VCR gets 'unlocked'. Try it.
