Question about RCA DRC8335
We just keep getting "hello" on our DVD player's screen. The DVD tray will not open and we have a DVD stuck inside of it. We have unplugged the unit but it returns to its frozen state when we plug it in. We have pushed every button on the unit but nothing makes a difference.
I called RCA yesterday, and they said that they are recalling my model # because it is defective. I am sending it back in. It's under the warranty so I will get a new one. Hopefully, it won't be the same model--I couldn't understand the person on the phone very well. I'll have to call again one day about it to ask someone else that I can understand. So if you have the Hello problem, you need to write down the model & serial numbers and call RCA. They won't talk to you without those numbers.
Their phone number is 1-877-805-0519. They close at 7 p.m.

The cause of this problem appears to orginate in the units Power Supply board. The The 470uF 16 V capacitor in loaction C226 opens and causes the 5.1 Volt supply to drop down to about 3.6 Volts. I fixed one of these units back in early August of this year by replacing the capacitor with a new ESR type capacitor of the same value. The unit has been plugged in and operating for the past three months since the repair. So if you are handy with a soldering iron, the repair can be accomplished in less than an hour.

To unlock, manually press and HOLD the open/close button & the stop button simultaneously, and HOLD them both down until the lock picture disappears. The DVD will eject when you press the open/close button.
To lock the DVD inside the machine, repeat the same step, and it will lock it inside.
