Question about RCA DRC8320 DVD Recorder/VCR

Unit will not turn on.

No lights or sound. Plugged into a hot receptacle, I pulled the cover and checked the fuse, it was ok. It was plugged in and not in use when it failed.

CAREFULLY Measure the voltage on both sides of the fuse to make sure that the fuse is actually good.

No fix?

disconnect and reconnect the wires from the low voltage and control side of the power supply board.

No fix?

Throw it in the garbage.

Unfortunately, sounds like you're gonna need to do some hunting. Starting with the receptacle, or light, closest to the fuse box, unscrew the light fixture or outlet cover and pull the outlet out. You need to look for wires that are discolored or disconnected. If it's as hot as you say it is, something probably melted. Goal is to trace the wires all the way to the fuse box, you will find your problem.

2004 Chevy Express 1500 keeps blowing trailer light fuse

If you're only blowing the fuse while the trailer is plugged in, the problem is in the trailer/wiring. This takes into account that the truck has a factory installed 7 way receptacle. If that's not the case, the problem can be in the incorrectly wired truck and the trailer is ok.

On the truck, looking into the 7 way receptacle should be as follows.
Top left=Tail Lights
Top right=12v steady source/charge line
Left middle=Left turn/brake
Right middle=Right turn/brake
Left bottom=ground
Right bottom=brake controller output
Center=reverse lights if your trailer is equipped.

Your trailer plug should mirror this.

This is the standard.

Switch /comb gets hot in wall

This is fire hazard.
Call electrician.

What is plugged into outlet?
Are wire and breaker sized correctly?
Do you have aluminum wire?

Otherwise turn off circuit breaker, pull out device and inspect for melted wires.
Use nose to find source of heat and burning.
Inspect if you have aluminum wire. Do not use aluminum wire.
Aluminum wire will burn down your house today.
Use only copper wire.
Replace combination device with new.

So far, you've pretty much done the right things in troubleshooting the unit itself. Now, turn your attention to the receptacle that it's plugged into. Is there power in the outlet? Is the interior of the receptacle damaged (loose wire)? Has a circuit breaker been tripped?

Sometimes the problem is not in the unit. It can be the outlet or circuit feeding the receptacle.

Will not turn on or fill up

Are you able to remove the cover on the control panel on the top?

There is a fuse inside, that might have failed, (open).

I am sure you determined that the receptacle you are plugged into is still live?

Tell us more-- and more symptoms-- like indicator lights, etc.

No lights - no power - DEAD! Worked fine an hour earlier now ... nothing. Check fuse in mains box - all OK - tried it plugged into another outlet... nothing.

Your unit is dead, mains are good, tried in other receptacles, still no power. You have a bad fuse inside the unit. Unplug. Remove the cover. Generally this requires removing all the screws on the back perimeter and lifting the cover up. Sometimes they stick due to old grease, etc. Somewhere in the area of where the power cord comes in or near the transformer there should be a small fuse in a holder. It is not a glass fuse and should be replaced with the same kind (ceramic) and value. This is important for future protection. You can get the fuse at . Get a box of five for future problems. If this was the only problem your microwave should work. If it blows the new fuse you could have a shorted power transformer, bad high voltage diode, or a bad magnatron in that order. There could also be a short in the board with the display but that would be unusual. Let me know if you need anymore helpl

Unit not running, not cooling electronic

To operate, a refrigerator needs electricity. If the refrigerator's light doesn't work and it's motor doesn't run:

1) Check the power. Make sure the receptacle works (plug in a working lamp or a circuit tester). If the receptacle doesn't work, check for a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse.

2) Be sure the cold control is turned on.

3) If you discover that the refrigerator is plugged into a working outlet and the cold control is on but the device shows no signs of life, leave the door closed to retain the cold air and call an appliance repairperson

Dryer won't start

1) Be sure your clothes dryer is plugged in and turned on. If necessary, check the receptacle it's plugged into for power, using a working lamp, appliance, or voltage tester. Be aware that most electric dryers don't plug into standard 120-

volt receptacles; they operate on 240 volts. 

Make sure the door is closed completely, the timer is advanced to the proper position, and the correct cycle is selected.

2) If the receptacle is dead, check the circuit breaker or fuse that serves that circuit.

3) Unplug the dryer and check the power cord and the terminal block. If necessary, replace the cord.

4) Open the door, and check the door switch. Press and release it; it should click each time. If it doesn't, it's probably broken.

If you're experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call an appliance repair service.

5) If the dryer still doesn't work, a thermal fuse or other electrical or electronic part may be faulty. The thermal fuse, found in the back cover panel, can stop working if the dryer overheats. Call an appliance service person if you suspect an electrical part may be malfunctioning.

Multipal problems

As for the radio, there may be a second fuse plugged into the back of the head unit itself - you'll have to remove the head unit to check this. It's more common on aftermarket units than on factory ones, but it's usually pretty easy to pull the head unit out, so it's worth a shot.

As for the dash lights, at the risk of me sounding patronizing, did you try turning the dimmer switch up? You may have one that is labeled as a dimmer, or it may be that you turn a headlight knob (if you have a pull-out design), or you may have to turn one of the little rods coming out of the gauge cluster - try all of those and see.

Also, check inside the vehicle - usually down in the driver's footwell you'll have another fuse panel, and that's where you'd find illumination fuses if there are any others.
