RCA DRC-285 DVD Player won't respond

hi, 2 things usually cause this kind of behaviour 1-the dvd+r have been burnt at a high speed 2-the dvd player itself is a bit old when you burn your dvd+R always burn them at a lower speed lowest if possible it'll take longer but it's well worth it and you wouldn't have a problem playing them back

Check P611 in power supply. Its a 1.5a 60v pico fuse (yellowish in color). Also disconnect
plugs when in order not to get false reading when checking other components

turn the power on. to get rid of the red light you need to press the timer/rec button on the remote until it turns off. the red light means it is programed to record.

Stand by light on but thats all

if it does nothing when you push the standby button to make it play the most common problem is the power standby sw is bad. do you know how to use a miltimeter if so test the voltage through the swithc when you press the button.

DVD player stuck in standby mode

Bad caps in the power supply is causing this. C17 (10v,470uf), C17,c14 (10v,1000uf) and C18 (10v,470uf). Replace with same capacitance values but 25 volt rating 85 C. Just fixed mine half hour ago works great.
