rca stuck in safe mode , how to get it out.

Have you attempted to remove the battery and power from the camera? Usually when a camera is stuck in safe mode if you remove all power from the device and wait a while (I would say 15 minutes should do the trick) it will clear the safe mode and you should be off and running.

Hi at the above link, you will find a myriad of people with a problem exactly the same as yours, it is a real headache, with NO real, well DIY fix, sorry, it appears that RCA will repair it for a price, so maybe it would be simply best to bite the bullet, and take it to a professional RCA servicing center, but ONLY ask for a "Quote". Now when you get this information, then you can make up your mind as to what to do, repair or replace?
As an aside here, and it is mentioned in that link i give you above, that this problem is a "Known About Issue" and in some countries they have been made to repair this issue FREE of charge to customers...
I actually haven't come across this exact type of problem with this exact type of camcorder, however, in my shop, I have seen similar repairs etc, and they can cost upwards of $200.00, so make sure you always get that quote. Further, there are a few postulated "Fixes" in that site given too, you can not do any real harm in trying any or all of them, especially the one about cleaning the "Heads & tape transport path" as described, this may just work, as may the Battery Removal/Replacement ... so good luck.

Safe mode will start when a fault gets detected by camcorder control board.

If there is no fault, and the safe mode was triggered because of a temporary problem, then the camcorder will reset simply by removing battery for one minute.

If the Safe mode does not clear after removing and putting back the battery, and you get an error code, then there is an internal fault.

In your case E02 is traction error. This often happens because of mechanical problems in the tape player/recorder drive unit inside the camcorder.

You can try tapping the side of the camcorder with you hand, with the tape inside. Try also playing with Play, Rew. and FF. buttons, in some case that will unlock an E02 error.

If that does not happen, then there is a mechanical failure. In that case the camcorder must be taken apart and repaired by a technician.

Best regards.

I don't know anything about the vhs camera - other than they produce superior quality, when they work ok. It would be reasonable to assume the tape transport mechanism would be the same as in a vhs video recorder. I remember an engineer telling me there is a post or protrusion containing a light source and sensor that sometimes fails. The purpose of this is to detect a cassette has been properly loaded into the machine and if it isn't working the machine won't work or only partly work. I think the camera is worth saving but I strongly suggest such specialist equipment should be entrusted to a suitably experienced professional specialist.

Do you have a model number? I found a manual for the RCA Pro8, Pro807, from Voxx here: https://voxxintl.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/225487888-Information-and-Owner-s-Manual-for-the-RCA-PRO8-Model-PRO807-Camcorder . The direct link to this manual appeared as https://sc.voxxintl.com/docs/common/PRO807/PRO807_OM.pdf in my browser history. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

I am sorry to say that it appears you may have answered your own question, the "hundreds of hours" is the clue. Consider the possibility that your camera is worn out. Sorry.

It appears to have a built-in USB connector, use that.

I understand you have a problem. What is not clear from your description, however, is the actual nature of the problem. Please can you state it more clearly. Thank you.

You can download a manual for almost any equipment by Googling the make and model followed by the word Manual, then follow the appropriate link(s).

This was manufactured in 1999 - this makes it at least 17 years old. If I were you, I would wish it a happy retirement, and replace it with a more up-to-date camcorder with better optics, a digital image capture system, and which is far lighter in weight and more portable.

RCA 4462 is actually the catalogue number for a vinyl LP by Brian Auger - are you sure you have quoted the correct model number ?
