Question about RCA DRC8030N
If the power button is held for 5 sec or more the unit will turn off and shows clock (which is working) but whenever open/close or power button is pressed the display shows sequencing 'HELLO' and nothing else will work.
Hi. The most common culprit for this HELLO message issue is a faulty DVD-RW drive. To make sure that this is the case, you will need to replace the DVD-RW drive with another DVD, DVD-RW, or another spare hard drive in it's place to make sure the unit powers on and gets past the Hello message. Just make sure the replacement is configured correctly via the master/slave jumper on the back. If this does nothing to help, then the fault could reside in the motherboard or hard drive. You can look at this post where I helped out a user with spare parts http://www.fixya.com/support/t1195654-drc8030n_motherboard

Tips for a great answer:
Press and hold CH Up and CH Down button on the main unit for about 5 seconds.
(Current channel line-up and television program list are cleared.)
Select "Yes" in "Restore Default Settings" in the SETUP menu.
This returns all values in the SETUP menus, except for the clock, channel settings, ratings
level, and on-screen language, to the default settings.
While the disc tray is open, press [DVD] then press and hold REC button and Play/ [PLAY/* 1.3] BUTTON on the main unit at the same time for 5 or more seconds
Press and hold POWER button on the main unit for 10 seconds. (The settings remain.)
