SOURCE: RCA DRC8312 DVD/VCR player is stuck on Hello

Hi,

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:

  • firmware, might need a re-flash or update;
  • hard drive, might have bad sectors or require replacement.
Alternately, if you are not considering a DIY (do-it-yourself), you may have to re-evaluate the options since in some instances, cost and time of repair may no longer justify having the unit serviced.

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

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)

DVD won!t EJect at all


The DVD might be stuck in the disc tray for whatever reason. To get it out, you could remove all the screws on the back and bottom. Slide out the cover to retrieve the DVD. Plug it in to see if it still works. If it still appears to be working, put it back together and hope that future DVDs won't get stuck.

When loading a dvd it displays, "NO DISK". Is it


Hello
There are mainly three motors for most of the DVD players. One to spin the disc we insert in, other to load the laser pickup unit to-and-fro inside it to read the disc and an other one to load the tray mechanism 'in-out'. According to your description, the disc spins inside, and you can hear its spin. So motor which spins the disc has no trouble at all I should say. Then comes to the second motor that moves the laser assembly inside it. If it do not work, the laser pickup unit won't move and no reading will take place and 'No Disc' display will be the result. The last chance is with Laser Pickup Unit itself. Just get this unit repaired by any well experienced service technician or by the authorised service center, because, there are special tools to open this unit. As it is a compactable one, more care should be given to it while repairing. Suspect the second motor I described earlier, and the Laser Pickup Unit. OK.

DVD stuck/jammed in tray


there may be two screws on the top of the tray that holds the rounded magnet, the one that is placed to hold the disc when spinning, remove it, you can then simply take the disc out.
