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.
