Question about RCA DRC8300N DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

Nothing Happens but "hello" unless I unplug.

I have had nothing but problems since purchasing this DVD/RCR recorder in April of 2008. The latest is that unit stays on with "hello" unless I unplug it. When I re-plug it in, it still comes on saying "hello" . Nothing else happens. I am totally frustrated with this product and probably will never buy RCA product again. The VHS tape is also stuck and will not come out. When it did record it world replay some of the tape like it was on fast speed and retracking did nothing for it. Also, some of the timer recording on DVD would not record and some would. I bought a used VCR recorder at a thrift shop for $5 which works better than this 200 dollar RCA did. How can I get a hold of company for warranty information?

This model seems to have myriad problems and I suspect that it was made in China since the VCR market is fading quickly. If you manage to find warranty info, I'm sure it will require a receipt and probably was only warranted for 90 days as is common with all of our junk consumer stuff these days. The RCA that built that machine isn't the one we remember. I'm sorry for us all-

When I use the timer to record a TV show with my DVD-R155, unit locks up.


If you can afford it purchase a TIVO. I had a a video and dvd player and it drove me mad. This unit records 2 programs at once with just the press of a button.
you can watch tv at the same time. Also you can rewind situations on live tv to watch it again. Top unit. I am 73 and I have no problem using it. Love it!

Hello,

The first and foremost thing is that you verify that your dvd recorder is compatible with DVD+R discs and not just DVD-R.. This can cause the problem's you are having with it, you can check the manual to see what media types it accepts.

DR-MV5S will not record


do you mean nothing at all happens?, or the program never recorded? check to see what input you're on.[channel 3, line in1,2,etc. also see what format the player records on.[dvd-r, dvd-rw, dvd-+r, dvd+rw or ram.

Problem Recording HDD to DVD-R


Hi,

I had a few problems with my philips 3450 - I downloaded the latest software upgrade at www.philips.com/support , and my issues were resolved. Worth a shot...

Only other thing I can think of is you may have a faulty batch of DVD-Rs?

Best of luck!
