Question about RCA DRC8030N

2 Answers

Noise coming from DVD player and it will not work

The DVD portion of the RCA DRC8030N player will not open or close. I high pitch squeaking sound comes from the player. There is no disc in the player. When opening the case and looking at the DVD component, it looks like the chasis the laser is on will not go up and lock into place and it will not move the tray. Is there a replacement part for the DVD player? If so, what part number will I need and where to I go to get it.

Thanks for your help and support

This is due to the mechanics inside the DVD-RW being out of place.  If you open the DVD-RW (take both the top and bottom cover off and take the CD tray out) you will see the white plastic guide that guides 2 arms as the laser mechanism lowers and raises.  One of these 2 arms is out of place and need to be pushed back in.  Also, check for a crack in the black plastic on the arms....this usually causes the arms to slip out of place.  If a crack is found, simply super glue it tigether.

I can solve this problem if you are willing to have a computer dvd recorder sitting on top of the unit and not inside where the original dvd recorder sits. I personally unplugged the old dvd recorder and ran the cables out the back after bending up the case to make sure they cables don't get cut up. Then the new dvd recorder (any brand; just must be IDE set to Master) will sit on top of the unit.. I have a couple of units that I have done this with and they work great. I think they even record quicker than before.

Email me at bigsteve1962@excite.com with RCA DRC8030N in the subject line if you have further questions or would like to get rid of the unit. I may buy a non-working unit if the price is right but I will do my best to help you fix yours first.

    Just found this suggestion, but it didn't help... So I think my player is up for free if you want to pay shipping.

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.

Finalized disk won't play in other players


You might check your burner to see if it is working correctly. If you are using the same media and it worked before, perhaps the burner or the burning software is not working correctly.

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.

These units have flaky TV tuners. Try connecting the coax cable (the one with the cable television signal or antena) to the back of your TV first and from there take the output to the input of the DVR. By doing this, you will beusing your TVs TV tuner vs the DVR's flaky one.
