Question about Denon DVD-800 DVD Player

1 Answer

DVD player: all disks freeze or skip at same point.

Help me trouble-shoot!
This is an RCA DRC 6100 DCD/VCR combo.

It reads beautifully and efficiently 90% of the time BUT whenever the optical scanner reaches the same point on each DVD it skips or freezes.

Because it reads fine, I assumed there is no problem with the lens or chips. Since it happens at the same point on every DVD, I can eliminate layer change problems.

In this model the optical scan mechanism moves back and forth on two metal rods. Because it moves fine most of the time, I assume the motor that moves it is fine (as I imagine it's a simple back and forth mechanism.) The gears also appear to be fine to my eye.

But whenever the scanner gets to the same point, the mechanism starts shaking back and forth and I can predict that it will skip or freeze a few seconds later. There was some lubricant caked around the rods so I tried to clean them. Though I was not as thorough as I could have been, i noticed little or no improvement....

Any ideas?

With some models it's very sensitive to being level. try moving your dvd player to a common flat area. see if it's a little rocky or placing a single piece of paper under one of the corners...I had a dvd player that would freeze on every disc and since I moved it to the botton of the cable box it no longer locks up. Worth a try.

MY RCA DRC 8320n DVD Recorder/VCR Combo will not accept tapes. DVD works fine. RCA help line is a joke. I will never buy another RCA product.


Yah, you're going to be taking that in for repair. I worked for couple of years at RCA / Sony / Panasonic / ... and 60 more names - service center. When a VHS Cassette loading mechanism doesn't work - it probably needs loading motor or loading gear, something repaired. At the cost of DVD and VHS combos these days I'd call it Not Worth Repair (NWR) out of the starting gate. At least $50 an hour, at least 2 hours ... that's beyond the cost of a new one.

I purchased a RCA DRC-8335 DVD/VCR RECORDER COMBO


For anyone who has an RCA DRC 8335 with dvd Recorder, here is a suggestion.
If your tapes have been recorded in SLP Mode, om another player, I can tell you they will NOT play on this thing!!
So, merely take another VCR, and a blank tape, Place the blank tape into the RCA DRC 8335 VCR side, and then, go to its Set-Up Menu, and go to OUTPUT. On the "ACTION BAR"Change the the RCA's output to "FRONT" and then, play the VCRr you stuck on top of the RCA!!
When the inage on the "Source tape is shown,
Record onto the RCA, in SLP Mode, Now, it will play, just fine.
Hope this helps. Jon (Found BY Accident!!)

I imagine you have checked the disk for scratches top and bottom, if so you can purchase a cd/dvd lens cleaner cdrom as the laser may need realigning and cleaning.
