Question about RCA DRC350N DVD Player

Open Question

My RCA DRC 350 is not reading DVD

I insert the disk... the player says ''reading disk'' for about 15 seconds then sends a message to the TV saying the disk is dirty... consult your users guide. I get this message from disks that are known to be good.

    My RCA DRC 250 has the same problem. I've tried taking apart the DVD player and cleaning. The laser is perfectly clean and appears like new. The DVD spins with the same results: disc dirty error.

hi, 2 things usually cause this kind of behaviour 1-the dvd+r have been burnt at a high speed 2-the dvd player itself is a bit old when you burn your dvd+R always burn them at a lower speed lowest if possible it'll take longer but it's well worth it and you wouldn't have a problem playing them back

SOURCE: It says "Disk error" on any disk. It won't read disk

turn off and, unplug your DVD recorder remove the six screws holding on the top tilt the back of the top up disengage the front of the top and set it aside look for a small laser tag this will point to a 1/4 inch glass lense this is the laser taking rubbing alcohol on a q-tip gently clean the lense with a twirling circular motion

This sound like a problem with the laser read circuits and it may be solved with a simple cleaning and using compressed air to clear the unit of debris .To do this you must take off the top cover of your unit by taking out the screws and lifting the top off. To clean the laser head you should use cotton swabs and isopropyl alcohol. put a small amount on the cotton swab and rub the swab gently back and forth over the head, until it seems bright and shiny.Check the transport carriage for dust and debris and also the gears. all these must be clean for proper operation. You may want to put a little lithium grease on the gears and guide rails for smooth operation. All this should be done in minute amounts so you do not over do it and cause more problems. If all this fails to allow you to use you disc player, Then you probably have a worn out laser sensor and will have to have it replaced. If under warranty send it in and if not try to find the part number and order it and either take in to a service center for repairs or do it yourself. Hope this helps you with your problem.

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!!)

Disk is inserted yet message says no disk inserted


If the DVD is not reading any CD, or DVD, then it is often a lens problem.

Try first cleaning lens with a lens cleaner DVD, possibly one with cleaning solution, that can be purchased at any computer & electronics shop.

If that does not work the unit must be taken apart, to clean the lens pickup with isopropyl alcohol and soft cotton tips.

If this happens only with a single DVD , then the disk is dirty , scratched or defective, or , if it is blank the unit does not like the particular brand.
