SOURCE: When I go to play

The safe mode is to avoid being able to record over the tape. On the back of the standard VHS cassette there is a knockout tab on each end. When looking from the front side of the cassette, the knockout should be on the right rear side.

With a pre-recorded tape that is protected, you should see a 1/8 inch hole where the knockout tab was. This protection can be defeated by putting a piece of masking tape over the knockout hole to cover it.

In the VCR there is a little sensing pin that senses the knockout tab. It is possible to have a defect in a VCR where the sensor electronics or the sensor is mechanicly defective. To fix this, the VCR will require service.

Not recording? Wont let me retrieve anything. Says end of tape with a blank screen.

Did you test the previously recorded photos, or with a recorded cassette? if it is not showing the prerecorded pictures it means there is some problem with the video head, eject the cassette look the head drum carefully, if there any dirt on the head, clean it with a head cleaner cassette.(put the cleaner cassette in and play it,it will play for 3 minutes only, rewind the cassette and ply several times). some old cassette also will not give good result, if your system too old, the head may be weak so that you have to replace it.

LG RCT689H video cassette player won't accept cassette

If you are at all mechanically inclined, open the cover and see what is happening when you insert the cassette. This is not rocket science - you may see what the problem is. At one point the loading mechanism engages and takes over when you insert the cassette. Dont touch any metal parts!
