Can i fix without buying a new vcr???

I have a GoVideo DVR 4300 that has been child locked. I have lost the remote control. Is there any way to unlock it with out the remote?


According to page 16 of the owner's manual, you cannot disable child lock without the remote. Because you have lost the remote, the unit does not offer a manual way to disable that feature. I am not sure if a universal remote will allow you to enter the setup menu, and turn the child lock OFF. You could try that - it might work.

Or you could try contacting them:

Phone (480) 922-0896 or (800) 736-7679 (during business hours)
E-Mail customersupport@sonicblue.com
Web www.govideo.com or www.sonicblue.com

They may or may not be able to offer further assistance. The universal remote might help, if you cannot get the original replacement for your unit.

Personally, child lock in DVD players is a pointless and unnecessary extra feature that should not exist; it should really only apply to Blu-Ray/DVD recorders.

Hello. My problem is that it keeps saying" "S A F E"


Hello -


You've accidentally switched the Child Lock feature ON.


To de-activate the Child Lock on most GoVideo DVD/VCR players, press and hold the POWER button on the GoVideo remote control for about 10 seconds. The SAFE message should disappear and you should be able to use the player again.


(To activate the Child Lock again, press and hold the POWER button for about 10 seconds)


I can't be 100% certain this will work for you as you didn't include the model number of your player. If you need further assistance, or you don't have the original GoVideo remote, please reply to me with the model number of your player.


Hope this helps.


Regards,

I can't turn off the child lock .. it came on by itself... the tv is about 5-6 yrs old How do I turn off the child lock please?


hi,

Your best bet is to get an original replacement remote. Use the remote to disable child lock. Also this Philips is actually an LG product so you may find an LG remote is cheaper than any other brand. Might be worth keeping an eye on ebay to see if anyone sells a bare remote control. Have you contacted Philips?

Plays on wrong channel


ok i downloaded and read your DVR-1000 manual , this is what you will do .

While the DVD+VCR is turned off, press and hold CHANNEL (up/down) button on the front panel for about five seconds.

The unit will turn itself on and “RF 03” or “RF 04” appears on
the front panel display

Use CH ( up / down ) button on the front panel or CH ( up / down ) button on the remote control to change the RF output
channel (CH 03 or CH 04).

Turn the DVD+VCR off and then on

Set the TV to channel 3 or 4 depending on the RF
output channel you selected.
Now you can watch the DVD+VCR playback on CH3
or CH4 of your TV

PS , you should see a child lock button on the remote , if you press that button , you will disable front panel button controls so kids can't change anything , press it again to unlock that feature , it might come in handy.

Thanks for using Fix Ya .
