Hello everyone having problems with there RCA DRC8335. If you are getting the HELLO sign and nothing else(which i was too).
First you have to find the blown capacitor. All the capacitors should have a flat top. If you find one that is not flat and if gets hot to the touch when your vhs/dvd player has power you found your source. Next unplug your dvd/vhs player and take out the blown capacitor. Do not waste your money tring to get it fix by a so call pro. The parts you need is less than .55 cents(lol). Now the capacitor that you take out should have a code number(mine was c226) which is located in the same area as the blown part. Measure the capacitor and call for your part number 1-800-344-4539 Digi-key.com will find the part you need(only if u know what part u need)
1.find the blown capacitor
2.remove it
3.get the number below the blown capacitor
4. measure it.
5.call for your part number
6.put your hard earn dollar(not dollars) to work
7.and you can say Thanks Maximilian Moore for saving me money

    The capacitor that I had to replace was c226 (as your looking at the back of the unit, its on the right hand board that the power supply goes into... but its most of the way at the top left portion of that board as you are looking down on it - the capacitor is labeled on the actual orange board). I read on another post from another user that had to do this with a bunch of these DRC8335 units and he replaced the capacitor with a 35v 470 uf (the one that it comes with is 16v 470 uf). I went to radio shack and paid $1.35 for the capacitor (I purchased two in case of the probable screw up) and $6.49 for a 5pc Soldering Iron kit. I yanked that old capacitor out (leaving the metal prongs) and soldered the prongs of the new capacitor to the leavings of the old one... it looked a little ghetto by the time I was done, but by god, it worked!

    I've taken the unit apart... found the c226 capacitor... it doesn't look especially bulgy... (nearby c228 looks pretty much exactly the same) and it MAYBE gets a little warm. I've had it plugged in for about an hour. Will it take longer to get hot? None of the other capacitors look bulged of feel hot. However the thing that looks like a cylinder sitting vertically in the middle of a hans solo carbonite frame with yellow and copper tape around it seems to be making a very soft buzzing noise... or at least one of it's neighbors near the middle of the board. The heat sink next to that is getting pretty hot... but I guess they're supposed to. What is the hans solo thing and might it be the cause of trouble? Should I just go ahead a replace the c226 and see if that fixes it? I'll have to have a friend help me with the soldering.

    Very good detailed help. I did just what you said buying the 35 volt replacement at Radio Shack and am back in business now. It was an easy fix. Thanks! You saved me a lot of $$$$$.

You have a blown capacitor in your machine. If you are good with a soldering iron, great, you can fix it yourself. Otherwise, find a friend who is good with a soldering iron. Parts should cost you less than $2 for a new capacitor. Replaced the blown capacitor in my machine, and my tape popped out with no fuss once I powered the system back up.

Unplug the treadmill. Locate the console key and place the safety or reset key into the treadmill console. Replace any parts that need replacing, or move on to the next step.
    • 2
Locate the reset switch on the underside of the treadmill console. Usually the button is large enough to trigger with a pencil eraser or Q-tip. Plug the treadmill plug back into the wall. Use the Q-tip to press the reset button. It may be necessary to hold the reset button down for a few seconds. "CL11" will appear in the display of the treadmill.
    • 3
Press the reset button one more time with the Q-tip. "CL21" should appear on the screen. Press the enter key. The display will change again and show "CL22." Keep pressing the enter key until the numbers cycle through to the number "CL26." Press enter one more time. The letter E should appear on the display screen.
    • 4
Press enter twice more. The letters "SS" should appear on the screen. When this happens, press the start/stop key. Making sure to keep well away from the tread, press enter to start the treadmill. The treadmill will start on its own. The treadmill will stop on its own after a few seconds. When it stops, press the power key two times. Remove the safety key and put in a safe place. Your treadmill is reset.

Hi, my front loader washing machine (Bosch Logixx 8 sensitive) has child lock written on the screen and will not start the load. ive tried switching it on and off again but it does nothing. the door is...


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

The Key symbol means the lock has been activated some how.

On most bosch of your class this is how you work it on & off.

Here`s how to deactivate it...

1) Press the "menu" button until you see "CHILD LOCK :ON" appear in the display. ( if nothing is pressed within 10 sec.following this the menu will close and it will default to program in the display )

2) Once you see what I just mentioned in the display press the "select" button until "CHILD LOCK :OFF" appears in the display.

3) Finally by pressing the "start/pause" button the key symbol should disappear confirming you have successfully exited the child lock program.

Let me know if this was helpful to you or not, if so please take a second and rate it accordingly.

Thank you for visiting "fixya" for your washer solution inquiry.

good luck going forward.
