Question about RCA DRC8052N DVD Recorder
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.
