Question about RCA DRC8040N DVD Recorder
Player will not not play any pre-recorded DVDs. Will play home recorded DVDs. Talked to RCA technical support. They want hundreds of dollars to send it back and repair, but won't say what the problem is. I suspect that it is a regions problem, since pre-recorded DVDs are programmed to a specific region and home recorded DVDs have no region. Put in DVD. Window on player shows "Reading" then "Menu". TV shows Disc name etc. Click on play and player starts counting but TV goes blank. Player counts for 1 minute then starts counting over. Went through all the menus and screens trying to find a way to set region. No options found.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

you need the crack ! it seems that your players might have a onboard misfonction! it maybe coded for region 2,3 who knoes anyway try this its a workaround that usually works on lots of dvd players to unlock regions !
Press the title button on your remote, then hit 01. This will take you to the first title on the disc and bypass the region lock. To get to the main menu, do a chapter/title skip until you get to the end of the disc. This will take you to the main menu.
