Question about RCA DRC8335

2 Answers

I've had a number of vcrs and vcr/dvd players over the years. But for some reason, I cannot set up this machine. I set up all of the cables exactly like I always have and the way that is instructed, but I cannot get the setup screen to show on the TV -- I tried this on two different televisions without cable boxes. (Oddly, this is the only machine I've ever had that does not have a designation on the back whether you want to view this on channel 3 or 4. There is no designation at all). Any ideas? It's very frustrating, including the 3 hours on the phone to Curtis, with no answer. Thanks.

These days the video input channel depends on the TV and any other equipment in the sequence. I've seen component video come in as Line, Channel 3/4 (with a switch on the video device), Aux1, Ex1, AV1, Channel 60 (I think that may be specific to satellite dish receivers). If the remote has an input button, try that (alternatively, look in the menu for source options). One thing to try: press the PSCAN button on the DVD remote (to toggle off the Progressive scan).

On some TVs the channel for the video is reached by going down from Channel 2 (this works when no channels are programmed into memory and the intervening channels are skipped).

What TV are you connecting to the DVD/VCR player? (If it is an older TV and any external device was connected to either channel 3 or 4, check that the TV works with any input device. I had a 19 year old TV (coax in only) that was damaged and no external device worked.)

I wish that I could be of more help.

Also press the PSCAN button on your remote and make sure it is set to "OFF".

VCS422. The VHS will play with a tape, but not from the TV. The display just as four horizontal dashes. Thanks.


I would suggest you replace your AV cables.
After a few years the cables can go bad.
If this doesn't fix the issue, try playing the tape in another VCR.
If that works, it's probably time to replace your VCR with a VCR/DVD combo player.

Have digital TV have 3 yr old sony VHS VCR DVD player combo


A DTV converter box will take digital broadcast signals from the antenna and convert them to a format compatible with the VCR. You will be able to record programs received through the DTV box on your VCR if you could record analog over-the-air programs before the digital changeover. You can use either the RF output or the component output from the DTV box to input to the VCR.

Can get dvd/vcr to work but vcr won't record


first did you program the vcr to match your cable channels ...that needs to be done on most vcrs/dvd/ combos and second if you have a cable box on your tv you still need to run a coax cable from the cable box to the in of the dvd player and out of the dvd player to the tv.

VCR will not turn on.


Remove top cover of the VCR. Then look near the back where the plug-in and power supply is. There should be a little glass fuse. You should keep that fuse and take it to the store and replace it with same exact one. If your VCR can be self-repaired, than this is the only thing you can try.

Lost manual, can't get VCR to play


There are several Philips and Magnavox DVD/VCR combos that have sepearate video connectors for the DVD and VCR side. Double-check the yellow composite cable that is plugged into the back of your Magnavox - it should be plugged into an area that says either "DVD/VCR" or "VCR". If you are currently using red, green, and blue video cables, you will need to add a second video cable - a yellow composite would be easiest. The reason for this change is that red/green/blue cables will only operate the DVD side on most Philips/Magnavox players - that is just the way they decided to design them. If you happen to find a model number listed on the back of your combo unit, and have the model number of your television, I can take a second look at it, and tell you exactly which connections to make. Good luck!
