Question about Insignia IS-DVD1001 DVD Recorder/VCR
The player disc door will not open, nor will the VCR eject button work. The word "safe" appears whenever we try to open the DVD disc door, or eject the VCR tape.
Try hitting the "Lock" button on the remote. That solved the problem for us.

I have this problem also, but am still looking for a permanent solution. It appears that this is a safe mode to prevent children from messing with the unit. I don't know how I activated it or how to deactivate this mode. I have found that all functions, including DVD and VHS Tape eject work normally from the remote. Use of the remote will give you complete control until the safe mode can be deactivated.

It also may be the CD belt (inside, on the motor shaft) is broken.
