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.

Re: RCA drc286 screen flicker
It sounds like the vertical hold on your tv set needs adjusting also with your tv and dvd are there a set of three plugs usually red,white and yellow in colour ?? if so connect these with a cable as this by passes the tv tuner hope this helps regards JIm

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.
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.
What are the compatible types of DVD's that the Daewoo DVD5800 player is supposed to play? Is DVD-R among the compatible types? Try playing the new recordings on a computer that has a DVD drive, or a friend's computer.
only sony really supported 8mm look for any trv model cam on ebay etc and make sure you tapes were hi 8mm-not digital 8-digital 8 won't play on reg 8mm cam-need to get model that supports both formats then-trv480-look at tapes and if they say digital and/or hi 8 they may have been in digital and get the 480 it will work with both types
