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.

After hello unit displays Please Wait continuously. How do I fix this please?


I just had this problem the other day. Unplug the unit for 2 minutes. When you plug it back in and get a the 000 press the power button for about 5 seconds and that will put it back in stand by mode. Then see if you can turn it on.

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 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.

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.

DVD Tray will not open


I purchased this unit back in Mid November to make DVD's of my kids old VHS tapes. To date I have probably have made 400 DVD's. Sunday we came home from being gone all day and the unit was locked up. I tried the reset button, unplugged the unit etc to no avail. I unplugged the unit all Sunday night and looked at it again on Monday morning. I was ready to take the unit back to Best Buy and the unit ejected the DVD and has worked for 2 days (Recorded another dozen DVD's). Tonight while reading the paper a message came on my monitor that there was a problem with the disk and instructed me to push the "enter" button which shut the unit off and was suppose to recover the disc. The recorder is now locked up again. A number of 000000's flashes accross the display and the unit constantly cycles off/on. So it is trying to recover but is obviously not being successful. I am going to try the same thing tonight. I am not sure if I have a bad set of blank DVD's. They are Sony -DVD R, same ones I have been using all along. I do remember having this "Error" message when I first started this project and I had to unplug the unit to resolve but it didn't lock up and I haven't had any issues until Sunday. Seems like something in the software is screwed up. It is frustrating that there doesn't seem to be a manual way to eject the disk??!!

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.
