Question about RCA DRC220N DVD Player
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

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.

Faulty switchmode power supply in the unit, due to several failed components including electrolytic capacitors which may have leaked. Look for bulging or leaky caps, and burn-marks on the PCB, around IC regulators (these can be 3 or 5 pin devices and they stand upright on the board) - chances are 1 or more of these ICs has short-circuited as well as the caps.
You can take the player to a service repair centre for a quote on the likely cost(s) involved to restore this unit to working order, as well as a second opinion, then you can make a positive decision afterwards as to whether it will be economical to fix or not. Up to you. I warn you that it could be expensive; equal to or more than the price of a new unit.
New players (even Blu-Ray with DVD playback support) are becoming cheaper to buy nowadays, while repairs to this and similar model DVD players become more expensive, often with suitable replacement parts not being available. If you truly love this little player, and you want it working, consider the abovementioned workshop quote suggestion first.
