Question about RCA DRC8320 DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

Unit only displays "hello"

I turned off the unit with a dvd inside, shame on me. The next day I turned it on. The only thing it would do is display "hello". Remote buttons proved futile. Unplugging for extended time and plugging back in fixed nothing.

    Thanks ButtFuzz but solution did not work. Aware of notoriously slow boot. Tried twice both suggestions. Set timer for two minutes seconded attempt. For one minute seems notoriously long when just waiting. I suppose it's to the shop or file thirteen. Again thanks.

    My DVD Recorder + VCR Combo, Model # DRC8320N does not work. The DVD compartment will not open and I tried unplugging it several times to reset the system and it returns to the same mode of operation, with the indicator light stating "Hello". It's been this way for sometimes now.



    I would really appreciate some advice. Please help...

This is a faulty condition caused by lack of error control in the firmware. Try this:

Unplug machine from wall for 5 min. Hold "open/close" button in and then plug machine into mains whilst continuing to hold the open/close button. Keep holding open/close button for about a minute, as these machines are notoriouly slow to "boot". It that doesn't work, repeat the procedure, but hold down the power button instead of the open/close button in an attempt to reset the memory settings of the unit. Good luck.

When loading a dvd it displays, "NO DISK". Is it


Hello
There are mainly three motors for most of the DVD players. One to spin the disc we insert in, other to load the laser pickup unit to-and-fro inside it to read the disc and an other one to load the tray mechanism 'in-out'. According to your description, the disc spins inside, and you can hear its spin. So motor which spins the disc has no trouble at all I should say. Then comes to the second motor that moves the laser assembly inside it. If it do not work, the laser pickup unit won't move and no reading will take place and 'No Disc' display will be the result. The last chance is with Laser Pickup Unit itself. Just get this unit repaired by any well experienced service technician or by the authorised service center, because, there are special tools to open this unit. As it is a compactable one, more care should be given to it while repairing. Suspect the second motor I described earlier, and the Laser Pickup Unit. OK.

My stereo is locked


Fist check inside the glove box wall, there might be a white sticker with the code on it.
if not try this, turn key on and audio uint off. hold 1 and 6 on audio unit and while hold 1 and 6 turn the audio unit on. Sometime audio unit will display SN# for you on screen.First half of SN# will be display first and second half next.
You can call your honda dealer and give them that SN# and they can give you the code for your audio unit.
If unit doesn't display SN#, then you have to pull unit out and look on it fo SN#.

good luck

My DVD Recorder & VCR (DRC8320N) has Hello on display


Even though the power light may be off the unit is still on. It will be warm on top. Unplug the unit for 30 minutes and plug it back in, that will usually reset it.

Yeaterday, my 2002 Acura MDX Navagation system began constant resetting and cycling into the power-up sequence. Just prior to that, it was taking a *long* time to do things, when reacting to a button being...


I had posted the similar problem with my 2002 Navi. It turned out to be a bad DVD/base unit. Unfortunately, just about all of the advice posted here was incorrect. The DVD unit is basically a complete computer and it sends raw video signals to the display unit just like a PC sends video to an LCD display; when the computer dies or is off, the display goes blank. So, any problems with sluggish or unusual behavior indicates the base unit is going bad. In my case, it was so dead that it couldn't event eject the DVD - I had to literally take the DVD drive apart to get my disc out. I bought a used Navi DVD base unit online from "acurahondatech" on eBay. This guy was great; he helped me diagnose the problem and found the right unit to work with my model MDX. I highly recommend him.

My dvd player wont work it will just say hello when i turn it on but then it will turn off by itself


I have the same problem. I installed this unit and used it for a total of one day before it complely failed. When you tun it on, the display says hello, nothing is shown on the TV, and it turns itself off within 30 seconds. Solution, I am returning this JVC unit and never purchasing another JVC product again. Complete failure after one days use, pitiful!

No Disk


When I try to play a DVD, operation seems normal, the unit makes a slight noise like the disk is rotating and "Loading" is displayed. Then after about 30 seconds the message "No Disk" is displayed. Then just the Polaroid screen is displayed. I have lost the remote control but surely the unit will play using the front panel buttons. One thing, only the remote is named as having a Setup Button in the manual but the unit has no such button.

My unit (vr3845) once the unit is turned on the display shows "Hello please wait" and will stay in that until it power off itself. So i can't do anything.
