The "H E L L O" message is part of the booting/initialization process of the built-in micro processor of the RCA DVD Recorder. Just like in a PC, it can also suffer from crashes/hangs.
Initially, pls try a reset. "disconnect it from all power and cable sources, leave off for 1/2 hour, then plug back in and hold the stand by buttons for the remote and on the machine at the same time"
If the above is not corrective, then you may have to consider a repair, probable areas to start checking would be:

SOURCE: DVD player completely locked up
The cause of this problem appears to orginate in the units Power Supply board. The The 470uF 16 V capacitor in loaction C226 opens and causes the 5.1 Volt supply to drop down to about 3.6 Volts. I fixed one of these units back in early August of this year by replacing the capacitor with a new ESR type capacitor of the same value. The unit has been plugged in and operating for the past three months since the repair. So if you are handy with a soldering iron, the repair can be accomplished in less than an hour.

make sure that the dvd is unplugged from the outlet and remove the screws of the cover, you should be able to access the dvd from inside the player without the cover on.
I hope this helps

SOURCE: dvd tray door will not open
This happened to me, heres what i did to fix it;
un plug the unit, remove the 7 screws holding on the cover, you can manually push the disc drawer out now, remove your disc, position the drawer so the center of the disc indentation is even with the front (bezel)
Now below the drawer you should see a black rectangular plastic piece with a small rectangular hole and on the right side a circular hole with a white nylon piece showing through, the rectangular piece snaps off (be careful its fragile) now you can see the two pullies the the old rubber belt went between(the old belt should be there also) find a rubber band approximately the same size or a hint smaller install it
, then plug the unit in and try it out (keeping your hands and tools out of the player) if the test works reasemble the unit and revel in your accomplishment. (I find the rubber bands last about 18 months)
