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.

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.

DVD players don't need parental locks. When a user places a DVD player in Parental Lock mode, they usually create a 4-digit access code to remove the lock. Without the manual, I can't tell you how to reset to factory settings...what you need is either the access code or to reset it.
If it came direct from the factory with a parental lock already on, try the code "0000". If you need more digits, just use 0 until all of the slots are filled. If 0 does not work, try all 1s or 9s.
