Question about RCA Open Box, Missing Non-Essentials DCR-8000 DVD RW RECORDER/PROGRESSIVE SCAN
My RCA DRC-8000 will on two of my DVD's only play the previews. When it comes time for the actual movie to begin it goes back to the play disc menu. This will happen over and over again. This only happens for two of my movies.
try to find an original remote in a pawn shop, sometimes they have extra remotes because broken dvd players, or other reasons they only know.

This sound like a problem with the laser read circuits and it may be solved with a simple cleaning and using compressed air to clear the unit of debris .To do this you must take off the top cover of your unit by taking out the screws and lifting the top off. To clean the laser head you should use cotton swabs and isopropyl alcohol. put a small amount on the cotton swab and rub the swab gently back and forth over the head, until it seems bright and shiny.Check the transport carriage for dust and debris and also the gears. all these must be clean for proper operation. You may want to put a little lithium grease on the gears and guide rails for smooth operation. All this should be done in minute amounts so you do not over do it and cause more problems. If all this fails to allow you to use you disc player, Then you probably have a worn out laser sensor and will have to have it replaced. If under warranty send it in and if not try to find the part number and order it and either take in to a service center for repairs or do it yourself. Hope this helps you with your problem.

how long have you been using the player and has it ever accept blank DVD-R discs in the past.
The problem might be as a result of weak laser (lens) or the blank discs inserted might not be compatible with player.
When the laser(lens) of a player becomes weak, it will not be able to read blank discs. It only takes a very strong laser to read/accept blank discs. If it happens that the laser (lens) is the cause of the problem, then it means you will need to replace the laser (lens) to a brand new one to be able to read blank disc. Though the player might be playing DVD and CD, note that blank disc is stronger when it comes to reading from the laser (lens), it requires sharper laser. I hope you understand this.
So, insert a CD into the player and observe if it will play.If it plays, then its obvious that your laser is very weak.
Concerning the incompatibility issue, I hope you are aware that there are various kinds of empty DVD discs such as DVD +, DVD -, DVD RW. Try any of this empty DVD discs as one of them as to be compatible with this DVD recorder.
Amongst the two topics discussed above, one has to be the cause of the problem. So its up to you to figure out which is the cause of the problem.
I hope you understand the above....
I wish you good luck.
