Rca dvd player drc285

I received this player new within the last 30 days. It was playing fine, but now it won't read the disc. Should I just return it or can I trouble shoot it to possibly resolve the problem. It's not the disc. Same disc that played in player will play in other dvd player

Re: rca dvd player drc285

I have returned the same dvd player twice and it seems that they all have this defect after a few runs. It's a shame because they can read divx but I'm done with this cheap brand made in very light fragile plastic. I've been told that there is nothing to do with this problem, it's just a bad one.

Won't play any DVDs

I mostly first always recommend a dvd lens cleaner to clean the lens incase there is something on the lens.

Is the player underwarranty? the lens may have a issue other than dirt and might need to be replaced.

What happened last time it worked fine? try unpluging the dvd player for 5 minutes and try again.

Hello?????????! Where have you been living these last five years?? Under a rock in Podunk, Iowa?? Remember when VHS was duking it out with Betamax back in the 1980s? VHS eventually won in 1988. Now it is the 21st century and BlueRay and HD-DVD just concluded their war for supremacy of the new recording/viewing format.
In other words, your HD DVD will not play on your DVD machine. You can either stick with DVDs or buy a new machine. Read the paper; listen to talk radio, listen to a podcast; BE INFORMED.

Can't set the TVguardian

I had the same problem with a memorex and called a company called Family Safe. Their number is 1-800-828-4514. Leave a message and you will be called back usually by a man named Mike. He has authorization to activate this for TV Guardian. Somehow the last digit is being left off of the code on the machines so the website reads it as invalid. You will have to give him your credit card number but it is a safe site and he activated mine and called me back within minutes with my code. Hope this helps.
