I had the same problem on my new DeWALT DC920KA I just got. It would tighten up around a torque ring setting of 19 and I could not turn it to the drill position. I exchanged the drill where I got it. Then I found the replacement drill started doing the same. In my case I experimented some and found that if I set it at the lowest torque setting and then held the chuck with my hand and turned on the drill a couple of brief times having the toque ratchet kick in, it freed the torque ring right up. Maybe this is an idiosyncrasy with these drills. I also have a good Makita drill that sometimes does the same. Anyway, I saw your question and thought this might help some.

Drill disengages when spinning

Could be several things. If it is a reversible drill, the selector switch could be stuck between forward and reverse. If it is a variable torque (popular on battery drills) the torque setting could be real low. Also, I've had this problem with the gears inside the drill wear out. No easy fix for that. If it is an inexpensive drill it would be cheaper to replace it than to have it repaired.

How to use the collar settings

I am assuming you are reffering to the torque setting on the transmission that is set by turning the numbered ring just behind the chuck on the drill. The ring adjusts the torque where the motor will not be able to turn the chuck any more. At the lowest setting, 1 or 2, you can hold the chuck with your hand and the motor should turn without turning the chuck in your hand. This setting would let you turn screws into threaded holes or nuts but not let you over torque them and strip out the threads. Higher settings will let you drive screws into wood to a determined depth like flush with the surface or slightly countersunk. This depth will also be affected by the hardness of the wood so if you hit a knot the depth will change. The highest settings will drive screws or bolts in very tight before the transmission will slip.

How do I use the adjustment ring on my ? back out the screws?

You're in trouble. You took the screw out and now the pin is past it's stop. You now have to remove the chuck and then pull the collar of and rotate it so the arrow on it points toward one of the numbers on the tool. Then put the two screws back in put the chuck back on and you'll have full range of adjustment in the collar. The problem is now that you overrotated the collar the clutch is at it's weakest setting and the chuck will likely be really hard to remove! Good luck!

Gears slipping

Many of these have a torque clutch that is used in screwdriver mode that will slip when a certain torque is reached as set by the ring around the chuck area. If you want it to not slip, usually you set it on a symbol that looks like a twist drill.

Type your problem for a solution...

I'm answering without knowing which model you have but, there are some Dewalt drills that will go into hammer and/or drill mode only if the speed selector is in 2nd gear. The torque settings are accessable only in driver mode. Short of that you may have broken parts in the transmission that can only be repaired by replacing the transmission.
