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 Garmin nuvi 265 was working fine until 2 weeks ago. We got a screen message saying that the XM traffic was not supported, and then noticed that the unit no longer could be charged using the car...


The traffic receiver is in the car charger cable. The charger should have a red light on if it is getting power. If the light is on and the unit is not charging and you have no traffic, the charger cable is bad. If the light is off, then either the fuse did not fix the problem, blew again, or is somehow not sitting properly in the charger. Another thing you can check is by using the unit in another vehicle. If it works fine there, then the charger is not making good contact with your vehicle outlet for some reason. You will probably have to buy a new traffic receiver charging cable.

I have an RCA Home Theater System RTD315WR, the blue standbye light is on, when i push any button the blue light turns off. Nothing is working on it. Ive tried unplugging it and plugging it back it....


I purchased the RCA Home Theater System RTD315WR less than a year ago. Just a little over a month ago, the door would not open leaving my DVD still stuck inside. Upon many attempts trying to retrieve my DVD NOTHING HAPPENS. As a matter of fact, the standbye light comes on, and when I push the button the light tunrs off completely and NOTHING happens. Since I no longer have my receipt or box, Wal-Mart would not exchange it. I am in the process of writing a letter to Wal-Mart Headquarters in hopes they will assist me in this matter.

Error Code CH 01


I have a Comfortaire BHD501 dehumidifier. A couple weeks ago I noticed ice building up on top of the unit,so I unplugged it to defrost. I plugged it back in and it worked until I noticed the "CH" "01" code. It would run a few seconds then shut off with that code showing. I took off the front of the unit and noticed rust on some of the metal parts. Then I took the cover off the circuit board for the front read out. I noticed corrosion on some of the solder points. When I looked closer at the plastic cover for the circuit board I noticed a small burn mark. The water from the melting ice must have run behind the cover and shorted out the circuitboard. At this point I don't know if new boards are available.

No power for DI-524


Have you tried the reset feature, small button near the power port.

Hold it down for thirty seconds with the unit unplugged. If that doesn't work you may need to buy a new router as something may have failed some time ago and just not been noticed until it was turned off.

Try the reset, but I suspect whatever killed your modem likely killed the router at the same time.

Hope this Helps FixYa,

Chris

Microwave not working


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

Otherwise, your controller or keypad may have moisture on it.

Need help fixing


I had the same problem a couple years ago with mine. After letting it set for several months, I tried to plug it in again after moving into another house. All of a sudden, it started working again. That was 1 year ago, but just last week...it did it again. I noticed that it does this if it is left on for an extended amount of time (my wife goes to bed at night and leaves it on). I cannot find anything on how to fix it, and no warranty assistance from RCA. I'm purchasing a Sony today, but will hold onto the RCA in case it decides to work again.
