Question about RCA DRC6300N DVD Player/VCR

Open Question

Scrambled functions, remote problems

Hi I have a strange problem with an RCA DCR6300N, unit has been woking perfectly, then suddenly the remote no longer works (remote tested and is ok), the function buttons on the unit itself are fine on the DVD side, but are "scrambled" for lack of a better word on the VCR side, where the IR sensor is located. The eject button now does nothing, the DVD/VCR button ejects the tape, channel up is record, channel down is channel up, and the record button toggles the unit between DVD and VCR. So basically, the only function that is missing is channel down. All the switches are ok, I can find no cold solder connections, it has been unplugged for long periods to reset, all voltages appear to be where they should be, as far as I can tell without service info. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: RCA DRC-285 DVD Player won't respond

hi, 2 things usually cause this kind of behaviour 1-the dvd+r have been burnt at a high speed 2-the dvd player itself is a bit old when you burn your dvd+R always burn them at a lower speed lowest if possible it'll take longer but it's well worth it and you wouldn't have a problem playing them back

SOURCE: RCA DRC8030N Problem

hey maybe you can try this first before the other solution posted i just read..

Open it up and unjack the drive unit from the maid board. it hould be connected via a cable.. turn the unit on and it should display an error message or error code.. Once this is done unplug the unit and reconnect the cable this should reset the unit and it should work..

I have never tried anoter drive before in any unit cause i could never get it to work, i always purchased the exact replacement parts.. In your case i believe its cause the main controller is damaged or frozen.. If you got a battery n the board remove it wiat a few minutes and replace it this should reset the unit..

SOURCE: remote does not work

i have the same problem. the unit itself won't accept the remotes signal. i tested 2 remotes on 2 different machines, and the problem machine won't accept signals, but the good machine will from both remotes.

SOURCE: Unit unresponsive - see detail below

Thanks to the help on this forum, I was able to fix my DRC8335 power supply. C226 was the problem, went to Radio Shack and found the 470uf 35V replacement. It came up and worked like a charm after soldering it in. (See the picture of the cap on the board). It was just slightly swollen when viewed from the top but when i removed it, the bottom was really distorted. Thanks to micro065 and Mike Powellebbca66.jpg

SOURCE: i have a rca dvd recorder+vcr combo drc8320n i want to set up watching/changing cabletv channels on the dvd remote. i have tried buying universal remotes cheap& expensive but they no longer work on my

With cable input connected to "RF in"on rear of unit make sure vidoe input is set to "Tuner". This will show up on the TV screen. Change channels numerically or using up/down arrow keys on DVR remote. Note there is a slight pause between changing channels.You probably will have to "autoscan" for channel setup/etc. If you say your TV set is old; it probabaly is equiped with coax
connection only/set TV channel to "3" or "4". when yot opt to play vcr/dvd it will override your
cable channel selected. Hope this helps!

My Panasonic DVD+VHS recorder has suddenly stopped recieving a signal. Aerial still works from dvd recorder to TV.

No signal from this combo unit can mean either one of 2 things; the program information didn't update correctly while unit was in standby, so some digital channels may be missing or scrambled, or you have selected a HD channel by mistake during use (this series does not have a HD tuner, it is only SD which would also produce the no signal issue).

Going on the first possibility, you can reset the unit back to factory default. To do this, while it is on, press and hold (on the front panel, not the remote) CH UP and CH DOWN buttons together until 'SETUP' appears on the display. Once setup begins, and the unit searches for DVB channels, release the buttons. With the remote, follow the subsequent options afterwards, when prompted. Check other menus, then exit. This should restore your unit to all SD digital channels available.

Assuming the tuner works generally, this reset procedure should help (it works perfectly for Australian models of this series).

I need harmontec dv-105 's remote code

A code for Centrios brand DVD player works for the Harmontec DV-105, but not perfectly. The 4 digit code for some GE/Zenith/RCA universal remotes is 1061. It gives the basic functions for playing.

Can't get my unit to respond with power switch on

With it stuck on "hello" it means there is likely a blown capacitor in your machine. I had the same problem. Replaced the faulty capacitor ($0.40 for the part and some quality time with a soldering iron) and my machine works perfectly again. Hope this helps.

Any button pushed on my remote control causes ''SET 1'' on display.

Hi, All you need to do is point the remote at your DVD player and hold both the number "1" and "enter" keys down for about 10 seconds. Evidently that re-sets the remote. It worked for me so good luck.

Hi. I recenlty fixed a unit with the same problem and I had to replace the motherboard. I could not get the remote to do a darn thing and the front pannel buttons would not do a thing either. Before going to the extreme, and if you still have functionality via the front pannel buttons, try to reset/format the unit. Keep in mind that this will erase everything on the hard drive. While in the main menu and with no DVD disk inside, press and hold the play and open buttons for about 7 seconds until you get the FORMAT message on the LCD. If this does nothing to leviate your problem, then replacing parts will be needed. I do have plenty of mother boards and hard drives left and would not mind selling them. Thanks.

Menu scrambled

Try resetting the unit. On the front panel of the unit (not the remote) hold down the channel up and down buttons for 5-7 seconds without a disc inside. This is a factory reset.

I did this this morning and so far so good.

Remote control does not work at all.

The winner is....

SET 1 on the console; press and hold the ENTER button down and while holding Enter; press and hold "1" button for about ten seconds together. Your remote and console should be in sync again and try cutting off the dvd recorder with the remote and it should work.

Panasonic DVD-RV32 DVD Player-No image on RCA output

Hi Obviously the unit is playing the disk because your audio is fine, and getting some kind of black & white picture out of the composite, means that the video processor is probably ok. The most likely things to check then is the yellow video cable, (just swap the red or white in place of the yellow on both the DVD and your tv to test), or possibly the yellow RCA jack on the back of your DVD has gotten loose. If you have not done so, try wiggling it gently to see if your video comes back. If it does, and you are handy with a soldering iron, you can probably repair it yourself. Other than that, it would be a problem for a repair shop. (and a strange one!) Hope this helps, and good luck!
