RCA drc286 screen flicker

I just purchased this dvd player. When the dvd is playing, occasionally the screen will flicker like an old 8mm film. I had the same problem with the drc285 it eventually started locking up or have a double horizontal image on the screen.

All of a sudden the "welcome screen" goes flickering up and scrolling .over and over like with old televisions.....which you used to be able to fix by adjusting the vertical hold knob. Or...


Check the connections between the DVD player and the TV. If using RCA cables, replace them, as one may be defective. If using S-video, check its connection is secure. It is probably just a bad cable connection or in the case of the standard yellow-white-red RCA, this is probably defective at its sealed plug points - replace this.

If checking/replacing cables does not fix the issue, the DVD player and/or TV may require workshop attention, which could prove costly. I hope it's just something simple, like bad cables/connections.

OLD P6-120 Tapes


The only way if to get an 8mm player from any friend or from any photography studios that does conversion of old tapes. These recordings can be converted only if they can play well and hopefully without deterioration due to magnettic fields and fungus. Check out on old stores or maybe some electronic freaks who would be glad to share and ,make a transfer. Use can use a good handy cam to record using the the composite signals of video and audio which can be transferred to DVD. Hope you are lucky to find one! Good day.

Make sure the audio cables (most likely the red and white ones) are securely plugged into the back of the player and your tv or amp whichever you are using. If that doesn't fix it try replacing the audio cables. If the problem still occurs see if the DVD has a mute function and make sure it is unmuted (this will most likely reset after a restart so it's unlikely the problem). If the problem still occurs the unit may need to be replaced or repaired.

Our screen is flickering like an old 8mm film


Check the video-out cable. If loose, it can be "intermittent," thus cause image flicker.

System stuck on "hello"


I had this same problem and held down the play button after unplugging the player. What i found was that i could boot up, but that shortly after the screen would scramble and alternate between static images and a green screen that flickers. I believe the single chip that drives this has failed.
