I have an RCA DVD/VHS combo and the DVD player has worked fine until just the other day and put a movie in and it showed loading it and then said "No Disc" I tried 5 or 6 different discs and the same thing. Will cleaning the eye work?
After all that fails, it's probably time to change the DVD drive inside
the player. Sometimes this is easy, sometimes not. :) I haven't been inside a 6300 but from looking at pictures, it's probably got a fully removable unit.
Of course, if you have a valid warranty, then when you're left with no
solutions that don't void the warranty, you have to decide whether to
try to pass it off to the warranty holder for repairs.

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.
I don't know what recorder machine you have or what your hooking up to do your transferring. You cant convert VHS movie to DVD by plugging in RCA jacks from VHS player to DVD recorder. DVD reads digital and VHS does not because it reads analog and out put analog. you have to covert VHS movie into digital in order to transfer to DVD. There is a program you can buy call Roxio Easy. great stuff, cost 59.00 buck for your desk top computer, everything you need is there to transfer VHS to DVD...hope that help some, good luck.
Cannot do this on a combo unit. There is a chip that senses copy protection and prevents recording a copy-protected DVD to a VHS and vice-versa.
Solution: Use an outboard DVD player or an outboard VHS VCR and try the recording with the video routed through a "stabilizer" box. The stabilizer (about $30 or less on Ebay) defeats the copy protection on MOST DVDs, but not all.
It works with Netflix DVDs.
Route the audio as usual. Audio is not protected.
it was the ep play on my vhs that caused the humming sound,when I recorded another vhs sp it worked just fine.Bottom line,when your transferring from vhs to dvd-r make sure its sp instead of ep and that will work just fine.As far as rca model drc8335,or any other brand,I'm a baby boomer and what I grew up with was Zenith,rca,motorola,etc.but what I have found is this,that all the brands that I grew up with that my parents believed to be the very best USA MADE are now made in CHINA,and thats what we get as our legalacy for outsourcing.Shame on us and shame on the greedy corporations for that!!!shame on you and shame on us!!!!! for not boycotting these corp greedy people who sucked us into believing that they had our best interest in mind.I for one as a baby boomer will not in the future buy buy anything that IS NOT MADE IN THE GOOD OLE USA OF A!!!!.We AS PARENTS AND OF THE BABY BOOMER GENERATION SHOULD LET THE GOVERNMENT KNOW THAT WE A FORCE STILL TO BE RECKONED WITH!!!!WE ARE 70 MILLION STRONG AND WE ARE YOUR PARENTS NOW!!!!AND WE STILL HAVE A SAY IN THIS LAND OF OURS<WATCH OUT BUSH!!!!YOUR A MORON AND YOUR REPUBLICAN PARTY IS OUT !!!YOU WERE BORN WITH A SILVER SPOON IN YOUR MOUTH AND I HOPE YOU CHOKE ON IT!!!ther folks i finally got it off my chest<good luck to you all with your inferior products made in china!!!
