Turn the VCR on and remove any tape. Press the record button and the VHS/TV button simultaneously. You should see a message saying the VCR is unlocked. It worked for me.

    Holding the record and VCR/TV buttons seemed to activate the lock. Holding the stop/eject button unlocked it.

Hold down the stop/eject button for about 10 seconds and it will turn the lock off.

Use of tv channel 3 or 4


You either have to choose either 3 or 4 or - instead of connecting to your TV through its tuner, go directly to the Audio/Video inputs using A/V cable (also known as RCA cable - probably has red, white, and yellow ends) Connect it from the color coded outputs on the VCR to the similar inputs on the TV. The TV may have several sets to choose from. Take you choice, but set the TV's input selector to this same designation when you want to watch the VCR. Sometimes its is called "VIDEO" sometimes A/V, sometimes "AUX"

My vcr is locked


this used to happen to me years ago and hasnt happened again until today. I know there is a button to press and hold, but I dont remember which one it is. One solution I know works but can be a pain in the ass is to unplug it for a few minutes and when you plug it back in it SHOULD be free of the lock

VCR DOES NOT WORK WITH NEW CABLE BOX


If you can get some of the stations without the box (often the case for those who subscribe to digital cable or movie channels), then one setup is to split the raw cable and feed the box and the TV, then have the box feed the VCR and hook up the VCR composite video and line level audio outputs to the TV. The VCR tuner would always be set to the VHF frequency your cable box RF output is on, usually ch. 2, 3 or 4. This setup allows PIP to work, with the TV tuner limited to unscrambled analog stations, and it also allows you to tape anything coming through the box, while watching unscrambled analog stations on the TV. However, it requires the VCR to be on and the TV set to the external video input to simply watch what is coming through the cable box. There are other ways to set this up with more flexibility using splitters and A/B switches, or you can look for a special switch box that handles the job. The above assumes your TV has composite video and line level audio inputs. The only way to have full flexibility to watch any scrambled or unscrambled station at the same time as taping a scrambled station is to have 2 cable boxes. The only way to have your VCR control the cable box and record different programs by switching the box by itself is to have a VCR with a cable box controller, also known as a cable "mouse". Hope this helps
