I have an RCA DRC 8300 combo VHS and DVD player and the DVD won't open when I press the open/close button. I know there is no DVD stuck in there and the manual doesn't help. Any suggestions?

I met a lady with the same problem.  I had to open the unit (use caution/check warranty) and I found out the foam pad that holds the discs in place fell off of its holder.  If you place this back on, the unit should work again just fine.

VCR/DVD combo. Why won't DVD tray move?


If the DVD drive opens and closes with the cabinet removed, the problem is poor assembly at the factory. Been there, done that with a brand new RCA combo right out of the box!

I have an RCA DVD/VHS combo with TVG. The DVD


This is a work-around rather than a solution. We put an audio CD in the tray and after closing the tray the unit begins to play the music. After waiting a few seconds we open the tray and quickly substitute a DVD and it loads OK. We had also tried cleaning the player to no avail. The CD approach is a pain but it does allow us to play DVDs. Jim

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.

I purchased a RCA DRC-8335 DVD/VCR RECORDER COMBO


For anyone who has an RCA DRC 8335 with dvd Recorder, here is a suggestion.
If your tapes have been recorded in SLP Mode, om another player, I can tell you they will NOT play on this thing!!
So, merely take another VCR, and a blank tape, Place the blank tape into the RCA DRC 8335 VCR side, and then, go to its Set-Up Menu, and go to OUTPUT. On the "ACTION BAR"Change the the RCA's output to "FRONT" and then, play the VCRr you stuck on top of the RCA!!
When the inage on the "Source tape is shown,
Record onto the RCA, in SLP Mode, Now, it will play, just fine.
Hope this helps. Jon (Found BY Accident!!)

VHS -DVD RCA Flashes in blue color


if i understand your statement, you are having an issue copying either VHS to DVD or vice versa, most media today has built in copyright protection to prevent what you are trying to do, there are PC softwares to bypass these, but you will have to hook the player to your PC using a TV Tuner, or an Application called VHS to DVD or something similar,

DVD Player does not work


General Problems
Player won’t work (locks up)
• Try unplugging the AC power cord and plugging it back in.
• Reset the DVD/VCR: on the front of the unit, press and hold the STANDBY/ON button while you press and hold the STOP button—wait at least 3 seconds
before you release both of the buttons. You’ll need to set up your menu preferences because this Reset Procedure returns the DVD/VCR’s menus to the
factory default settings and also erases the contents of the Disc Library.
