Question about RCA DRC8295N DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

Plays no DVD's of any kind or format

I insert any kind of DVD, which all play fine in my JVC unit. The RCA takes about 30-45 seconds reading the disc, then gives me a "disc error" message. It is a reconditioned unit, but the VHS side works perfectly. Am I missing something in the set up?(I checked to make sure that parental controls are off). What else?

The disc may not be spinning when inserted into the player.

when you insert a disc, something holds it from the top and bottom and starts to spin it. If the upper and/or lower grips can no longer grip the disc strongly, the disc will not rotate or rotate very slowly or not in sync with the laser reading it.

to test this, put some double sided tape on the outer circumference of the middle hole of the dvd, don't go too close to the area where the data area on the dvd begins. do the bottom first.

if this works then you have to find a clever way of placing something on the grips so they can hold the discs stronger.

For my dvd player, i took it apart, cut a rubber sheet into a ring shape and glued it to the lower grip. Haven't had any problems so far.

My dvd player tray does'nt open when it should and when i insert a disc to play, it only plays for a few seconds then it stops but the disc continues to spin


Hello
The laser pickup unit of your DVD player may either be faulty or dusty. Just put in a cleaning disc into it and play it for at least three times, and check. If it does not help you, the laser pickup unit of your device should be replaced with same type and number. Just check the loading belt too. OK.

RCA DVD player model DRC105N that won't read discs anymore


If the DVD is not reading any CD, then it is often a lens problem.

If th lens cleaner does not work the unit must be taken apart, to clean the lens pickup with isopropyl alcohol and soft cotton tips.

In some case is necessary to replace the lens pickup, as this is defective.

Some blank DVD+R discs will not read on my DVD player


The JVC DR-MV1S DVD Recorder / VCR Combo does not suppport DVD+R, only DVD-R, -RW etc.
At least mine only supports these formats, as when I first bought mine, I got some blank DVD's they were DVD+R.
I recorded a movie onto one on my PC, then tried playing it in the JVC unit... no go!
Instruction manual (available for D/load online) proved to me that I could not play +R disks!!

WON'T PLAY BURN DVD'S


There are two main families of DVD's, the minus (DVD-R/RW) and the plus (DVD+R/W). The most popular is the minus and almost all players can access this types. The newer and better DVD (plus) is not as popular like the minus. SOme players will not be able to read the plus. Check the DVD that you used, if it is DVD+R, try to use DVD-R

I have a JVC DR-MH50 DVD/HD recorder and it will only record on DVD-R or DVD-RW not DVD+R or +RW. so check your format of disk you are trying to record on it may be as simple as that.
