Question about RCA DVD & Blu-Ray Players

Open Question

Rca doesn't honor their warranty.

I was told to send my RCA VCR player to ThompsonInc. at Socorro, Tx. and they would send me a new DCR8335 in exchange. I sent the player on 12/12/2007 and wrote ATTN: SR04192740 on the package as instructed. When I called Thompson at 1-877-805-0519, they told me to e-mail rca1800customersupport.com but when I did, there was no sight. Fae Stene

SOURCE: Dish network

With the dish remote and do a code search as described in the remote manual and see if you can find it that way. If you go through the entire code search and none of them turn off the VCR/DVD combo, then there is nothing you can do, as those codes in the remote are all stored in the remote and they cannot be programed in. If you do not have a remote manual to set up the remote, to do a code search, simply go to the dishnetwork web site and search for it.

SOURCE: DVD/VCR combo player won't work

I had a similar problem and corrected it with a solution found on another site. Try hitting the I/P button on the remote which controls whether "Interlaced" or "Progressive Scan" is used to display the image on the TV. Mine worked when "Interlaced" was used. but no picture was displayed when "Progressive Scan" was used. The I/P button toggles between the two settings.

SOURCE: DVP334V cant connect to my LCD TV

  1. Connect the video cable to the players VIDEO (CVBS) OUT (yellow) jack and to the TV's VIDEO IN jack.
  2. Connect the audio cable to the players 'AUDIO LEFT' (white) and 'RIGHT' (red) output and the TV's 'AUDIO LEFT/RIGHT' input jacks.
  3. After it is hooked up, you will need to select the TV’s video input channel that corresponds to the jacks connecting the player to the TV.
    • Press STANDBY-ON to turn on the player.
    • Turn ON the TV.
      Note: Video Input selection varies for different brands/models of TVs. Consult the user manual or manufacturer or your TV if none of the below is successful.
      • Press channel 2 on your TV. Then press the channel down button to locate the video input channel. (This channel is usually located between the lowest and highest TV channels.)
        OR
      • For some TVs, there may be a button on the TV’s remote control that accesses the video input channel labeled SOURCE, AV or SELECT.
        OR
      • Select the Video Input Channel from the TV’s on-screen menu system.

SOURCE: Problem hooking up DVD player to TV thru my cable box

Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.

The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.

The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.

One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.

If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!

SOURCE: MY RCA DRC 8320n DVD Recorder/VCR Combo will not

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.

It will be far cheaper to replace the item with one year warranty than send it to RCA, factory rates start at $100.00 and up.

I need warranty for portable dvd player from walmar


As far as I can tell this product hasn't been sold in years. If you bought it new and recently ask Walmart for warranty info. It would have had a 90 day or 1 year warranty when new.

We just purchased a Samsung TV, and have been using a RCA DVD/VCR player/recorder, Model#: DRC8295N, Serial#: XXXXXXXXX We have Direct TV and before the new tv was using one of their DVR player/recorders....


The problem with your DVD/VCR is that when you hooked up your new TV you probably removed the power cord for the DVD/VCR during installing and running your new wires and such.

Your DVD/VCR has known problems in the power supply. This is very common. When unplugged, this allowed the capacitors to discharge and now wont work at all. It is very possible that if you left your DVD/VCR plugged into the AC wall socket it might begin to work after a couple of days. I wouldn't plan on it though.

Your DVD/VCR will need power supply repairs.The cost should be around $100 dollars.
if you would like one of our stores to repair this for you we would be happy.

please visit http:www.albiontvandcomputer.com
You can send us the unit and we can repair this for you and return in about a week.

hook the video output from vcr to dvd input at rear, then hook output from dvd to tv input. note; you can not record protected vcr movies you can only record tv shows from sattelite to vcr or dvd recorder. its best to record straight from sattelite to dvd recorder for picture clarity.

Rca dvd player is not reading most disks


To ALL users of the RCA/Thomson DCR8335 VCR/DVD combo player/recorder.

NOTE: This unit is problematic and most likely, that is why is has been discontinued. I've have all the problems listed at this site and www.consumeraffiars.com. I would advise to stay away from RCA/Thomson and Audiovox (as I read online that Audiovox bought out RCA Audio/dvd products). They won't even honor the written warranty to repair the unit at a local RCA authorized facility. They are stating that repair parts are no longer available, and the only recourse they are offering is to exchange the unit with another problematic DCR8335 which is not accecptable in my opinion. They also want you to pay for the return shipping which is not cheap. If you push them to talk to a manager and refuse to pay the return S&H, they offer to give you a prepaid shipping label to pay for the return shipping. I refused to take the same unit as a replacement as I read online testimonials of others who did and encountered the same issues. We need to complain and have them offer a monetary refund so that we can purchase a comparable replacement unit of our choice after researching the product so we don't end up in a similar scenario.

Wishing you all the best with your resolutions pursuits...

Have a great day!!! :)

Rca vcr / dvd just stopped working


If the unit is only a few months old, it should still be under warranty. Return it to the place of purchase or at least call there to find out where to send it.

No lights


On the power supply unit it does have a fuse, look near where the 110 volt connects up to the board. It should be very close to this connection. The Fuse is a soldier type, small and white in color it is located very near the front of the playier. I don't think the problem is electronic but rather software issues. The software is really buggy on this unit and even the reset doesn't offer any help. I was told by RCA a $50 dollar fee would be the repair cost, plus the shipping to and from. I'm not putting another $50 dollars in something they should be able to make a fix and allow a free download to help correct the problems. It could be an electronic issue, I maybe wrong but it does appear more software! It might be, a reload of the original software would help, it could have corrupted through static or other possible causes. They don't offer that or any hope of it. Support for this unit is down right sloppy at best. Not impressed with this unit at all, my experience is with a 5 month old unit, because it was a gift they will not honor the warranty.
