Owner's manual and standby button

I received my player and there was no owner's manual. I have tried everything to get one. Who can I call or write to get one? Son was able to set up and it worked last night. I wanted to try it out and it wouldn't open up by remote. It will work manually. It is getting a signal because it responds up in the right hand corner with what looks like a hand. I had pushed the standby button and wonder if that has anything to do with the problem. With out a manual, I am stuck.

Re: Owner's manual and standby button

I have the same missing manual problem and found a free PDF download online! Go to:

They call it the Spectron IQ, but the manual cover clearly shows it's the Protron.

Re: Owner's manual and standby button

If you would like specific pages of the manual I can try to copy and fax or e-mail it to you. Have you called their tech support? 1-888-257-8899 It's not the best though. I remember having the same time when we first set up ours but can't remember what their answer was, wish I could. I just looked at the manual and it says to set clock first and scan for channels through the "Setup" button. This does sound familiar but somewhat strange as it appeared to me at first when we had the problem. Hope it helps, Ben.

Everytime I press any buttons It says it's locked?

It may have a lock out feature that has been engaged for the buttons--read the owner manual or if lost Google the model number for "manual"

Rca drc8295n reset parental codes I bought this unit at a yard sale for five bucks... It plays cd, vhs tapes, but when I put a dvd in it wont play and I see a pad lock on the little display. I am assuming...

Page 55 of the user manual shows a way you may be able to 'reset' the player back to factory defaults and/or if a parental lock has been set and the password is unknown/forgotten:

* Press the STOP button on the front of the unit while you press the STOP button on the remote control-keep pressing both buttons for approximately 3 seconds (until the 'padlock' icon disappears from the front panel display). Release both buttons (the player should be unlocked). If that doesn't work, try resetting the DVD/VCR (instructions are listed below).

* Reset the DVD/VCR: on the front of the unit, press and hold the STANDBY/ON button while you press and hold the STOP button-wait at least 3 seconds before you release both of the buttons.

You'll need to set up your menu preferences because this Reset Procedure returns the DVD/VCR's menus to the factory default settings and also erases the disc library.

You can always go to the above site and download the free pdf of the owner's manual for this model if necessary (follow the prompts).

Give the suggestions a try before considering downloading the documentation.
