If the unit is only a few months old, it should still be under warranty. Return it to the place of purchase or at least call there to find out where to send it.

We did use the Red & White RCA cable in addition to a coax cable. When the VCR tapes starts there is a burst of static coming from the speakers. The dvd sound is perfect but absolutely no sound from...


This is a combo unit (DVD/VCR), which should have RCA AV outputs on the rear - component video, DVD, and DVD/VCR. The latter output allows tapes to be heard and viewed, as well as DVD movies when the respective deck is selected via remote. There appear to be 2 S-video outputs on this model according to the user specs guide.

In other words, examine the rear of your combo unit - and connect the red-white RCA cable to the DVD/VCR 'OUT' sockets on the rear of the unit (L & R) and the S-video cable to the 5-pin socket in the same section if that is what you use instead of yellow RCA. This should fix the no-sound on VCR problem, and the bonus is it won't cost anything, and you don't need a workshop repair or setup quote.

You probably connected the cables to the main DVD output instead of DVD/VCR.

I hope this helps somewhat.

We just purchased a Samsung TV, and have been using a RCA DVD/VCR player/recorder, Model#: DRC8295N, Serial#: XXXXXXXXX We have Direct TV and before the new tv was using one of their DVR player/recorders....


The problem with your DVD/VCR is that when you hooked up your new TV you probably removed the power cord for the DVD/VCR during installing and running your new wires and such.

Your DVD/VCR has known problems in the power supply. This is very common. When unplugged, this allowed the capacitors to discharge and now wont work at all. It is very possible that if you left your DVD/VCR plugged into the AC wall socket it might begin to work after a couple of days. I wouldn't plan on it though.

Your DVD/VCR will need power supply repairs.The cost should be around $100 dollars.
if you would like one of our stores to repair this for you we would be happy.

You can send us the unit and we can repair this for you and return in about a week.

MY RCA DRC 8320n DVD Recorder/VCR Combo will not accept tapes. DVD works fine. RCA help line is a joke. I will never buy another RCA product.


Yah, you're going to be taking that in for repair. I worked for couple of years at RCA / Sony / Panasonic / ... and 60 more names - service center. When a VHS Cassette loading mechanism doesn't work - it probably needs loading motor or loading gear, something repaired. At the cost of DVD and VHS combos these days I'd call it Not Worth Repair (NWR) out of the starting gate. At least $50 an hour, at least 2 hours ... that's beyond the cost of a new one.

Rewind on vcr stops all the time after a few seconds.What can I do to make it go all the way without stopping?


The interior drive belts and rubber drive wheels need cleaning. If you are not a technical person, please bring it to an appliance repair shop to be serviced. You can break the delicate drive parts and sensors if you have never worked on a VCR before.

RCA DRC8300N DVD Recorder / VCR Combo manual


Gary. The DRC8335 User Manual is no longer available on Thompson's official support site. But fortunately a few of us downloaded it a year or more ago before it was pulled!

I tried uploading the manual to Fixya several times including just a short while ago. It seemed to upload successfully, but after performing a Fixya search it's still nowhere to be found, just like many others I've uploaded in the past.

But don't worry! You can download it NOW from my personal User and Service Manual archive on OwnerIQ using the hotlink below.

OwnerIQ encrypts all filenames within our personal folders for security purposes which ends-up making them rather unreadable. For this reason, please rename it back to my original filename appearing in blue in the hotlink just below when the download completes

Rca drc8295n not recording to disc


The DRC8285N model is a great little machine, however, it will only record to DVD+R 8x disks maximum. If you are trying to record to a 16x, you will not be successful. See page 2 of your manual, and RCA service confirmed it. You can use 2.4x, 4x and 8x only. That eliminates the newer 16x format.
