Capt.
You can use www.TVRepairPros.com which is NESDA (National Electronic Service Dealers Association) list of all members across the US... It's like using the AMA to find a qualified doctor... You'll even find me on that list if you were searching Long Beach WA.
As for the cost it varies according to location and parts distribution. Best is to ask for an estimate first and you can cut some costs by taking the unit to them rather than having them come to you...
Hope this helps!
Let me know...

If your machine was having the same problem mine was having, all that was needed was replacing a blown capacitor on the main power board (I think it's location C226). Cost for parts: $0.40 for a new capacitor. Time: If you know what you're doing with a soldering iron, you can replace it yourself with very little fuss. Got the board put back in the machine after putting the new capacitor on, and my stuck tape popped right back out.

I have a refurbished DRC 8335. When I play my VHS tapes I get static, the tape jumps, and fast forwards. How do i fix it.


VCR's have actually become cheaper to replace than to repair now.The place I used to work at will not even repair them anymore.

My RCA DRC 8335 won't turn on, it justs keep saying "HELLO". What could be the problem? Have unpluged for more than 48 hours hoping it would reset it's self. DIDN'T. Was starting to have problems with it...


The problem is with a capacitor on the power supply that is too small and blows out. Its number c226 on the power supply, it is rated to be 16v, but that is too small. So all you have to do is go to radioshack or a store like that and get a replacement. I have fixed about ten of these systems and I found that it works best to use a 35v 470uf capacitor as the replacement. It costs about a dollar and a half. All you have to do is remove the power suply board find the capacitor number c226 and replace it with the bigger one. It is an easy fix that works great.

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!!)

Rca DRC 8335 dvd/vcr combo --VCR tape stuck. won't go in and engage or eject. Unplugging doesn't work.


Call this number 877 805 0519

You need to have the model number (DRC 8335) and the serial number before you call.

Apparently this model has had a lot of problems as they have set up this number specificaly for this model. They will ask you a few questions and then they will send you another unit. You will to pay to ship it yourself. You should read the reviews on Amazon.com.

As for geting your VHS Tape out ...Hopefully when they send you a new machine they can send your tape back with it...but dont count on it.
