Question about RCA DRC8300N DVD Recorder/VCR
Posted by Anonymous on
I have the same problem too. And it swallowed my tape. I disassemble, took the tape assembly out and get my tape by putting 9 V to the motor ( the small dc motor ) so I can get my tape.
I did plug in the unit without the tape assembly, still say "Please Wait"...Therefore it is maybe the microcontroler not following the program and may possible need to be reset, with the power on.
So I will need the chip location, the pin out of the microcontroller, and solder a push button at the reset pin of the MCU and see what happen.

Yah, you're going to be taking that in for repair. I worked for couple of years at RCA / Sony / Panasonic / ... and 60 more names - service center. When a VHS Cassette loading mechanism doesn't work - it probably needs loading motor or loading gear, something repaired. At the cost of DVD and VHS combos these days I'd call it Not Worth Repair (NWR) out of the starting gate. At least $50 an hour, at least 2 hours ... that's beyond the cost of a new one.
