Question about RCA DRC8052N DVD Recorder

1 Answer

RCA DRC 8052NB will not read discs

Display reads ''No Disc' Player will not read DVD`s.
I have an RCA DRC 8052NB DVD recorder / player.
I can insert a dvd and it will display an hourglass along with a picture of a 90% full disc and will say ''Reading''.
Then after about a minute it will go to a dashed outline of an empty disc and will say ''No Disc'' even though there is a Disc in it. I have tried brand new DVD-RW discs and store bought pre-recorded DVD movies.
The unit will not recognize anything and will say no disc/ empty every time.
If I hit play it will say to insert a disc, even though there is one in it.

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.

Problem with Finalizing Disc


When you insert the disc what does the recorder display after it examines it (Reading TOC)? - CDR, TOC, CDR-W, NO TOC?

It should know the disc is not finalized and let you either record more on it or finalize it.

If not, and you need to recover the 4 tracks try loading the disc on a DVD player. My old Pioneer will read unfinalized CDR-A's so I can digitally copy what's on them back to another CDR-A.

DVP-NS30 shows "CANNOT PLAY" message when DVD inserted


Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if the DVD player cannot read or play the inserted disc.
  1. Ensure the inserted disc is compatible with the DVD player.IMPORTANT: Refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product for a list of compatible disc. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
  2. Use a soft cloth to clean the disc.
  3. Examine the disc for any cracks or scratches that might be interfering with playback.
  4. Attempt to play another disc.NOTES:
    • If another disc plays in the DVD player, then the previous disc is faulty.
    • Some recordable discs may not play correctly because of the quality of the recording, the physical condition of the disc, or the characteristics of the recording device or authoring software used.

  5. Remove the disc from the DVD player.
  6. Turn off the DVD player.
  7. Unplug the power cord of the DVD player from the AC outlet.
  8. Let the DVD player remain without power for 1 minute.

RCA DVD player model DRC105N that won't read discs anymore


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

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

In some case is necessary to replace the lens pickup, as this is defective.

Plays no DVD's of any kind or format


The disc may not be spinning when inserted into the player.

when you insert a disc, something holds it from the top and bottom and starts to spin it. If the upper and/or lower grips can no longer grip the disc strongly, the disc will not rotate or rotate very slowly or not in sync with the laser reading it.

to test this, put some double sided tape on the outer circumference of the middle hole of the dvd, don't go too close to the area where the data area on the dvd begins. do the bottom first.

if this works then you have to find a clever way of placing something on the grips so they can hold the discs stronger.

For my dvd player, i took it apart, cut a rubber sheet into a ring shape and glued it to the lower grip. Haven't had any problems so far.
