Question about RCA DRC8052N DVD Recorder

1 Answer

No lights My RCA was working fine until a week ago. I noticed that the clock was not operational. I unplugged the unit and plugged it in somewhere else. Nothing. On/Off switch gets no reaction. Does it have a fuze that can be replaced? Appears to be getting no power to the unit. I called the RCA help number and was told I had to send it in for repair. Is that worth doing?

On the power supply unit it does have a fuse, look near where the 110 volt connects up to the board. It should be very close to this connection. The Fuse is a soldier type, small and white in color it is located very near the front of the playier. I don't think the problem is electronic but rather software issues. The software is really buggy on this unit and even the reset doesn't offer any help. I was told by RCA a $50 dollar fee would be the repair cost, plus the shipping to and from. I'm not putting another $50 dollars in something they should be able to make a fix and allow a free download to help correct the problems. It could be an electronic issue, I maybe wrong but it does appear more software! It might be, a reload of the original software would help, it could have corrupted through static or other possible causes. They don't offer that or any hope of it. Support for this unit is down right sloppy at best. Not impressed with this unit at all, my experience is with a 5 month old unit, because it was a gift they will not honor the warranty.

My RCA portable DVD wont charge. I brought it two months ago and it was working fine until 2 weeks ago. #DRC99371EB

Lithium ion batteries can be over charged. You have to try to discharge it then recharge it to retain the long life of the battery. Otherwise you have to replace the battery.

I put in a new disc to record and ( and get "Recording error, can not record on this disc." E 4 54039000. Seems like it doesn' want to format as usual. This just started about a 2 weeks...

E4 error code means that the disc isn't being read, because the unit is dirty or the optical eye is going out .You have to get a cleaning kit and then proceed.

you may try this:
unplug from wall, wait 15 minutes, plug back in, and reset the clock,
The disc must be DVD-R with an R4.7 under the logo and they MUST be 4X or 8X specific .... the cannot be 1X - 8X or 1X - 16X or note up to 16X .... the disc box must state 4X or 8X ONLY .... and yes they are hard to find for sure

Shuts off after inserting disc

This unit has a problem with component failure in the dvd section of the unit. It is probably in the power supply to the dvd drive. Thats why it fails when you insert a dvd. You should get the unit tested and serviced for the problem. You can call the Magnavox customer support at thsi telephone number 1-800-605-8453. Tell them the model number of the unit and about the failure of dvd section of the unit. They will be able to tell you how you can get the unit serviced. I hope this information helps you with you problem.

RCA model DRC8335 Loosing the date and time

That will be a problem from the text side of the broadcast, the clock is set from the text transmission, ( in other words a problem from the transmitter ) possibly due to digital switchover or work on the transmitters. One possible solution would be to turn off auto clock setting, and/or auto summer time adjustment.
