    The solution was helpful only in confirming what I had already figured out. I did manage to get in touch with a repair help representative of RCA who told me that my solution could be in obtaining a disc for cleaning the lens of the DVD Record/Play/VCR unit. I intend to explore this possibility. Do the optional offers to contact another expert etc. at "ASkYou" entail addtional charges? I may desire to use your service in the futhre depending on this and other questions I have. Meanwhile, I remain a somewhat confused first time customer.

It seems that the DVD you are trying to play is either scratched or some dirt has accumulated on the lens of the DVD player. Please check whether the player can play other discs or not. If the error comes on other discs too, we feel you'll have to get the player serviced.

Please let us know what happens. Thanks you.

Rca drc8295n reset parental codes I bought this unit at a yard sale for five bucks... It plays cd, vhs tapes, but when I put a dvd in it wont play and I see a pad lock on the little display. I am assuming...

Page 55 of the user manual shows a way you may be able to 'reset' the player back to factory defaults and/or if a parental lock has been set and the password is unknown/forgotten:

* Press the STOP button on the front of the unit while you press the STOP button on the remote control-keep pressing both buttons for approximately 3 seconds (until the 'padlock' icon disappears from the front panel display). Release both buttons (the player should be unlocked). If that doesn't work, try resetting the DVD/VCR (instructions are listed below).

* Reset the DVD/VCR: on the front of the unit, press and hold the STANDBY/ON button while you press and hold the STOP button-wait at least 3 seconds before you release both of the buttons.

You'll need to set up your menu preferences because this Reset Procedure returns the DVD/VCR's menus to the factory default settings and also erases the disc library.

You can always go to the above site and download the free pdf of the owner's manual for this model if necessary (follow the prompts).

Give the suggestions a try before considering downloading the documentation.
