Question about RCA DRC8030N

1 Answer

I want to find a replacement for DRC8030N

Hi:
I'm writing from Aguascalientes, México and I want to know if you can get me, and sell me a replacement for a RCA DRC8030N (DVD Recorder), specifically I need the laser. I really don't know the serial number of this replacement. When I sent it to repair the technician told me that laser was 60% of life, and I wonder if there is somehow I can buy one and repair my dvd recorder. Or what can I do, I really like the performance of this recorder.
I will appreciate your answer, thank you very much.

You can replace the DVD-RW yourself with any computer DVD/DVD-rw drive.  You will need to modify the way it sits in the unit as the screw holes will be different and some drilling will most likely be needed to make new screw holes.  Finding an original replacement DVD-RW for this unit will be hard because the first problem that this unit has is a constant HELLO message due to a faulty DVD-RW, so they are in high demand.

Larger Hard Drive in DRC8030N


Yes you can replace the hard drive with a larger one. I have a 500 gig hard drive in mine. You can do the same thing with the DVD drive.

Any more problems, contact me at bigsteve1962@excite.com

RCA DRC8030N No output


Connect the unit as you normally would using the composite cables. Once you turn the unit on and the RCA logo flashes and then the video *poof*, dissappears, press the Video Out button on the remote control so that the PS OFF (progressive output for S-Video) is shown on the LCD, this should get the video back to normal.

Drc8030n Motherboard


Thank you so much for sending me those parts, and an extra thanks for the extras. Which happens to be what I needed to fix my problem. You won't believe it... I got your well-packaged parts today. I soon replaced the Motherboard, no change, still the same HELLO... I was so deceived... Then, I decided to replace the Power Supply, just in case... IT WORKED!... (thanks for sending me a free power supply)... Looking at my power supply, I can see that on the printed circuit under those 3 diodes, near the transformer, is an area that seems to have overheated. I will test it and give you the results eventually, as well as the results and solution if I can fix the DVD burner. I'll use the extra fan you so generously gave me to cool the power supply, seems like it won't hurt. Though I have to place it right, or it'll make the problem worse... Seems like anything wrong with this DVR and all it'll do is display HELLO... I've heard of a bad DVD Burner, a bad Motherboard and now a bad Power Supply that causes the HELLO... Thank you so very much GSAN, you did it... I recommend you to everyone out there for your fairness, kindness and devotion. We should call you Mr. FixYa!...

Hi. I recenlty fixed a unit with the same problem and I had to replace the motherboard. I could not get the remote to do a darn thing and the front pannel buttons would not do a thing either. Before going to the extreme, and if you still have functionality via the front pannel buttons, try to reset/format the unit. Keep in mind that this will erase everything on the hard drive. While in the main menu and with no DVD disk inside, press and hold the play and open buttons for about 7 seconds until you get the FORMAT message on the LCD. If this does nothing to leviate your problem, then replacing parts will be needed. I do have plenty of mother boards and hard drives left and would not mind selling them. Thanks.

Rca drc8030n hello


9 out of 10 the Hello problem lies in the DVD-RW board (I replace this board to correct the problem) and that 1 out of 10 time the problem lies in the main board that the IDEs connect to. I have replaced this board as well to correct such problem. I understand that these spare parts are impossible to come by. If you can make sure that the DVD-RW is fine by hooking it up to your PC and reading from it, then I can send you an RCA DRC8030N with the Hello issue that originates in the DVD-RW (so you can swap out the main board that connects the IDEs) and still have extra parts for later possible problems. If interested, you can contact me via triple w.suncitybargains.ecrater.com Thanks.

Constant hello's


Constant hello is most likely the DVD drive. if you have a spare, then I would recommend replacing it (it is a computer drive so any will work). If you do not have a spare, then you can go to Ebay or Ecrater and purchase a used DVD drive and pop it in. It is failry easy to do.
