Question about RCA DRC8335
CLICK HERE for your manual.
This is a very common and known problem with this particular unit.
The frozen "HELLO" message indicates that the RCA unit has failed to finish its boot up diagnostic sequence. This could be brought about by a failed component (most likely) or a glitch in the firmware (least likely). This would be so if there is no lock symbol likewise displayed.
To try and address a possible firmware glitch, unplug the unit from the wall outlet (if haven't been tried) and allow unpowered / disconnected condition for an extended period of time (say an hour or so).
Should the above be not corrective, options then are:
The problem is a bad electrolytic capacitor on in the power supply board. The cap is a 470uf 16v (number C226 on the power supply board). Replace it with a 470uf with a rating of 25v to 50v and it should restore the power fucntion to normal. I have fixed six units this way so far.
oR IF YOU'RE NOT TECHNICALLY INCLINED... Call this number. 1 877 805 0519 This is Customer service. This IS a known problem with this unit. They may send a return label to send the player back. The company should take care of it.
Hope this helps you.
Thanks for using FixYA

You could try resetting it to factory default (while it's off, hold the power button for 10 seconds and release). if "hello" stays on there, the processor is bad. unfotunately, it's a common problem with the rca. if you figure out how to fix it, let me know. i've seen many of these with the same problem and rca says to replace it. figures.
