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.
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.

The problem with your DVD/VCR is that when you hooked up your new TV you probably removed the power cord for the DVD/VCR during installing and running your new wires and such.
Your DVD/VCR has known problems in the power supply. This is very common. When unplugged, this allowed the capacitors to discharge and now wont work at all. It is very possible that if you left your DVD/VCR plugged into the AC wall socket it might begin to work after a couple of days. I wouldn't plan on it though.
Your DVD/VCR will need power supply repairs.The cost should be around $100 dollars.
