Question about RCA DRC8335

1 Answer

My RCA DRC 8335 won't turn on, it justs keep saying "HELLO". What could be the problem? Have unpluged for more than 48 hours hoping it would reset it's self. DIDN'T. Was starting to have problems with it recording DVD'S in "Tiny ?? format". Some type of word, not sure now what it said. Wouldn't record in this format all the time. If I put a DVD back in to watch, it would sometimes say it wasn't "RECORDABLE", but had watch and recorded on it earyler. Have never had time to use the VHS side of the unit, so not sure if it was working. The DVD side worked fine till a few months ago. Any thought on what could be the problem? Wondering if the DVT Transition has effected it?

The problem is with a capacitor on the power supply that is too small and blows out. Its number c226 on the power supply, it is rated to be 16v, but that is too small. So all you have to do is go to radioshack or a store like that and get a replacement. I have fixed about ten of these systems and I found that it works best to use a 35v 470uf capacitor as the replacement. It costs about a dollar and a half. All you have to do is remove the power suply board find the capacitor number c226 and replace it with the bigger one. It is an easy fix that works great.

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

I purchased a RCA DRC-8335 DVD/VCR RECORDER COMBO


For anyone who has an RCA DRC 8335 with dvd Recorder, here is a suggestion.
If your tapes have been recorded in SLP Mode, om another player, I can tell you they will NOT play on this thing!!
So, merely take another VCR, and a blank tape, Place the blank tape into the RCA DRC 8335 VCR side, and then, go to its Set-Up Menu, and go to OUTPUT. On the "ACTION BAR"Change the the RCA's output to "FRONT" and then, play the VCRr you stuck on top of the RCA!!
When the inage on the "Source tape is shown,
Record onto the RCA, in SLP Mode, Now, it will play, just fine.
Hope this helps. Jon (Found BY Accident!!)

Rca DRC 8335 dvd/vcr combo --VCR tape stuck. won't go in and engage or eject. Unplugging doesn't work.


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.
