Question about RCA DRC8052N DVD Recorder
The unit will not turn on. I've read that I should unplug it, so I did and then when I plug it back in it just says ''hello'' on the screen, but doesn't respond to any remotes presses, or button presses on the front.
RCA DRC 8052NB does nothing but displays "HELLO"
Among the voltages available from the power supply is a 3-volt source. The first capacitor after the diode is a 1000 microfarad, 6.3-volt unit. There were no signs of leakage of overheating, but I changed it anyway. Voila! the unit came to life. Hope this helps.

My friend has the same model and the same problem it says hello. When we held the power button
down the clock would come the screen.
We work on electronic equipment for aliving. We traced the problem to the power supply board.
You have to take the screws out to remove the cover. If you don't feel comfortable doing this find
someone who does. You also need to be able to remove componets from the aboard.
The power supply is the smaller board to the right of the dvd tray.
The capacitors brake down and lose some of the cap MFD value. The capacitor that went bad
was a 1000 MFD 6.3 volt. We replaced it with a voltage thats higher then 6.3.
You can check voltage with a volt meter. I think the votage numbers are on the board. Look on
both sides of the connectors.
Sorry we don't have the cap location number put they put it back together before I could get it.
If this helps some people let me hear it. E-Mail email@example.com

According to montilla (his link is dead) the solution is discussed in this thread: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_jump.cfm/143317/4227459
it says that the problem is caused by faulty capacitors C1260, C1270, and C1271 which can be burst or leaking.
here is photo http://i38.tinypic.com/nehn5e.jpg with these capacitors.
They can be subtituted by 1000uF 25V capacitors ( they are 680uF 16V)
These faulty capacitors can also cause problem with proper finalizing written discs.

I also had this same problem with my DRC8052NB. After a power outage it would no longer turn on and was stuck on "HELLO". Like neveo1999 and roybro123, I replaced the 1000uF, 6.3V capacitor (C22, which on mine also did not show any signs of bulging or leaking), and now it seems to be OK. The capacitor I replaced it with was 1000uF, 16V.
Before I replaced the capacitor, the 3.3V output was only in the 2.8V range. Now it's right up at 3.3V again. Thanks for the info!

This person has a very good guide on how to fix this issue. I've owned 2 different types of DVD recorders and the Capacitors used on both are ****.
These instructions are very easy to follow. GOOD LUCK

Hi, sorry for bothering I was recording a DVD-R with some videos but I pressed stop and was trying to move on but there was a red circle full filling itself over and over again it was 2 hours later when the light went off and the power switched off.
