Question about RCA DRC-285 DVD Player

RCA DRC-285 DVD Player won't respond

I have a RCA DRC-285 DVD Player, the problem is, I was playing a DVD+R and it suddenly went green/ distorted and and froze. I attempted to eject the DVD and NONE of the buttons on the unit or the remote would respond. I tried to power down the unit but the power button wouldn't work. So, I unplugged the unit for about an hour and plugged it back in. I used a different disk but the same problem occured. Could this problem be caused by DVD+R disks..if not what is it?

    The unit is actually pretty new (two months) and the problem still occurs with a pre-recorded DVD. I checked it again today. It will play for a few minutes there is a high pitched squeel and the distortion/ green sceen freeze comes about. Then the unit stops responding.

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

    hi,
    if the unit is only 2 months old you should take it back you are entitled to 1 year manufacturer's warranty and they will replace it for you.

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!!)

Connect DVD recorder to Video player/recorder- transfer VHStodisc


hook the video output from vcr to dvd input at rear, then hook output from dvd to tv input. note; you can not record protected vcr movies you can only record tv shows from sattelite to vcr or dvd recorder. its best to record straight from sattelite to dvd recorder for picture clarity.

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.

RCA DVD player model DRC285


try sticking a knife on the top of the dvd slot. don't put a lot of pressure to break it though. turn the dvd player on, and it may open. If this solves the issue, try not to put items on top of the dvd player because it will cause it to stick and not open.

Hdmi not working


You need to set up the out put of your DVD player. First hook up a non hdmi output to the tv, either component or coax. You don't need to hook up the audio. You should get a picture from this connection. Then you can go into the menu and set your hdmi output to match your tv, probably 1080i. You may have to turn your volume up higher when using the hdmi cable than not. I hooked my audio up directly to a surround sound and don't use the tv's speakers.

Coby 626 DVD Player Remote Not Working


I have a COBY DVD player TF-DVD7005 that hadn't been used in a while. When I charged the battery and the light went from red to green, nothing happens when I push play and the DVD doesn't spin. Could the battery be dead despite the green light and where would I get a new one?
