Question about RCA Televison & Video

Open Question

RCA DVD recorder needs new DVD burner or eye. I have a DRC8000N recorder that the DVD won't record anymore. Trying to find a compatible replacement drive or parts.

Also can someone tell me if you can use a DVD recorder out of a computer in place of the broken one? If so does it have to have different firmware? And if so where can I get it?? Looked all over the internet can't find out a lot about this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: region free - Samsung DVD-VR375 DVD Recorder / VCR

I have managed to get a solution to this now. I have a region 4 as in Australia so depending on where you are you'll need to try the correct region. It worked for me first time. Point 4/ below my region code appeared in the top right corner for a couple of seconds not the top left! Once you've completed below turn the machine on again and stick in one of the dvds that would not work before.

Cheers Stewart

1/Turn machine on without disc inside
2/Press menu button
3/Enter region code (See below for list)
4/A highlighted 'region area number' will appear in the upper left corner (some players)
5/Press 9 to change the region number to multi-regional
6/Turn machine off

R1 - 29334
R2 - 38767
or, 5 7 5 3 8
R3 - 56732
R4 - 76884
R5 - 53814
R6 - 24462

My Sonic DigitalMedia LE v7 doesn't read recorded CD any more.


Chances are the hardware is damaged and will need to be replaced. This happens over time to eye sensors, and you can replace the eye in it but it's just cheaper to buy a new 10 dollar CD/DVD Burner/Reader from new egg.

I hope this helps.

Panasonic DMR-EH75V DVD Recorder


What a story ! Clean your laser eye with Rubbing Alcohol and a Q-Tip. Down updates to your Recorder from Panasonics Website., and install in your Recorder. Order your replacement parts from Panasonic but I do doubt you will need them.

Check file extensions of files on your recorded cd's. Add file extension to Roxio, Windows Media player and check your drive settings.

RCA DVD Recorder (drc8000n) loses time


Is it always a minus 4:11:50 reset? Do you use Guide Plus+ or something like it for recording off-air? I would think the clock would be set automatically from an external source if you wanted to synchronize with scheduled programs.

I would bet if yoy set the clock and disconnected the cable it would NOT change again in 3 hours as it has been doing. Experiment with that sometime. I'll bet the problem is up the foodchain somwhere.

Have a samsung Samsung LE26A456C and a toshiba dvd recorder. Have set up telly fine, set up video to play fine but cannot record


What is it that you are trying to record? If you are trying to record a DVD you have purchased onto a DVD-R, you will almost always run into a problem because most purchased DVDs have copyright codes burned into them, making them unrecordable. Most VHS tapes have these copyright protection codes in them as wel. If you are trying to record a television show, and are unable to do so, make sure that the DVD that you are using is compatible with your burner. If your burner is set up to record only DVD-R, then you must use only the DVD-R discs. If your burner is set up to record only DVD+R, then you must use only the DVD+R discs. Some burners will record both the DVD-R and DVD+R. If you have the right discs for your burner, make sure that the discs are correctly formatted to be recorded. Also, make sure that if you are recording from a cable box or other input that you have the correct unput channel selected on the burner. If these suggestions don't work, then it could be the brand of DVD that you have purchased (i.e. Sony,Maxell,TDK,Fuji,etc.). Check your manual for acceptable brands. I hope this helps you out. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
