SOURCE: rca DRC 8335 dvd/vcr combo

Call this number 877 805 0519

You need to have the model number (DRC 8335) and the serial number before you call.

Apparently this model has had a lot of problems as they have set up this number specificaly for this model. They will ask you a few questions and then they will send you another unit. You will to pay to ship it yourself. You should read the reviews on Amazon.com.

As for geting your VHS Tape out ...Hopefully when they send you a new machine they can send your tape back with it...but dont count on it.

SOURCE: I can't play any VCR tapes or DVD's in my Magnavox. Shows E1

Hi All, I realize this post may be a bit late for some but I just bought this unit myself on 12-22-08. After reading the pdf manual I downloaded from an earlier post the description of "E1" and "E2" is on page 20 and more details are on pages 35 & 36.

"E1" is the display indicator the unit is looking for a External input signal or Line Mode. "E1" External input on the rear, "E2" External input on the front. No signal present so the unit shuts off.

I suggest changing/setting your record channel or source before starting any record mode steps. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Go Video DVD will not eject

this suggestion made on this forum worked great for me.
I don't care if it does sound silly.. smack the unit smartly over the eject tray when you press the eject button.

VHS tape will not eject and unit shuts down


It's not loading correctly. You need to open the cover (unplug first) and get familiar with the loading mechanism. You can get the tape out by rotating the loading motor wheel.

Make sure the device is plugged into the household power supply and is switched on if no indicator lights are illuminated on the control panel. Watch for any power-saving technology that can shut the recorder down when it's not being used. Try the "Power" button again.

Verify that the media you are using is compatible with the device. Most combos record to DVD-RAM/-R/-RW/+R/+RW Discs on the disc side. VHS cassettes can have erasure tabs, so check that the tab is still there if you can't record to the cassette. Watch out for copy-protection technology on either the tape or disc. Often it's indicated on the packaging. Copy protection is designed to stop illegal reproductions, so may block many recordings of copyrighted material.

Connect a television to the "Video Out," "S-Video Out" or "Component Video Out" jacks on the DVD-VCR combo if you can't see video from the combo playing on the television.

Forcibly eject a disc if it is stuck in the combo. Often, manufacturers will create a sequence of buttons to use that accomplishes this. On a Panasonic, you force the combo into "Standby" by pressing "Power" for 10 seconds. Then press and hold "Stop" and the "Channel Up" button together for five seconds, and the disc should eject.

Cassette is stuck. Cannot eject


Sounds like the tape is dragging and the spindle wont release it because of the torque on it. Can you rewind or fast forward to see if it releases?

Setting is stuck on VCR, cannot use DVD functions or figure out how to change it back to DVD


This can be due to many faults as the VCR function has not come back to the MODE STOP/REST /CONDITION and so the processor tends to drive the mechanism to complete to the mode .

Hence please check up with these tips.
1. If the cassette does not loads or if the cassette is locked inside then the machine will shut as the loadind or the servo is defective.
2. If the in detect is not working then the opto devices or proximity sensors/magnetic type can be faulty.
3. If the drum does not rotate it will shut down as well a fault in the SERVO section.
4. Defective HALL IC can shut the switching and so the servo will shut down the processor.
5. Fault in the power section to deliver the correct voltage to the circuits/loading servo to take up.
6. Finally if the loading is not to the MODE switch point or failure of mode can make the loading to trip as it will not complete the load to the desired point.

A video tape got stuck in the vcr then.


Well to get it out the vcr would have to be taken apart by someone that fixes vcr's and dvd players then for them to get it out. Or try and un plug it for 10 minutes to see if it fixes the issue if not it will need to be repairded. DOn't take it apart your self it might damage the vcr then.

VCR kicks out cassettes


Sounds as if something got bent in the loading mechanism when you freed the stuck tape. Careful examination of the loading operation with the cover off may reveal the problem, but you may require a service shop, as there are hazardous voltages present inside, even when switched off.
