Recently Purchased an RCA DRC8335 DVD/VCR. I was hoping to convert some of my vast VHS collection to DVD. The VHS portion of the device skips, audio comes out fast like in FWD then slows to normal and fast again. I know my first problem is I purchased an Audiovox but I did not know RCA was part of their Family of products.

I convert VHS to DVD using a Toshiba DVD Recorder that I purchased from Costco a few years back. I plug the VCR into the DVD recorder using RCA jacks, press PLAY on the VCR and REC on the DVD recorder and let it sit and record. I can record up to 8 hours of video onto one DVD at low quality. After this, I finalize the DVD so it can be read on other DVD players.
The loading basket is defective, or the loading gears are out of alignment. Check for broken gears, belts, and a twisted basket after removing the top cover. If speed is an issue you may need to take it to a technician to see if it can be salvaged.
I do not think so because the first problem is that the VCR recorder uses RCA audio cables (the White and Red colored cables) but the speakers use regular speaker wire. You cant convert from RCA to regular speaker wire. Second problem is even if you find a way to convert the wires, the DVD recorder does not amplify the sound signal. In fact all DVD players and recorders including VCR combos do NOT amplify the audio signal so you will barely hear it. The receiver does two jobs. First it converts from RCA cable to speaker cable and Second it also amplifies the signal before it sends it out to a speaker. Thats why a receiver is important.
it was the ep play on my vhs that caused the humming sound,when I recorded another vhs sp it worked just fine.Bottom line,when your transferring from vhs to dvd-r make sure its sp instead of ep and that will work just fine.As far as rca model drc8335,or any other brand,I'm a baby boomer and what I grew up with was Zenith,rca,motorola,etc.but what I have found is this,that all the brands that I grew up with that my parents believed to be the very best USA MADE are now made in CHINA,and thats what we get as our legalacy for outsourcing.Shame on us and shame on the greedy corporations for that!!!shame on you and shame on us!!!!! for not boycotting these corp greedy people who sucked us into believing that they had our best interest in mind.I for one as a baby boomer will not in the future buy buy anything that IS NOT MADE IN THE GOOD OLE USA OF A!!!!.We AS PARENTS AND OF THE BABY BOOMER GENERATION SHOULD LET THE GOVERNMENT KNOW THAT WE A FORCE STILL TO BE RECKONED WITH!!!!WE ARE 70 MILLION STRONG AND WE ARE YOUR PARENTS NOW!!!!AND WE STILL HAVE A SAY IN THIS LAND OF OURS<WATCH OUT BUSH!!!!YOUR A MORON AND YOUR REPUBLICAN PARTY IS OUT !!!YOU WERE BORN WITH A SILVER SPOON IN YOUR MOUTH AND I HOPE YOU CHOKE ON IT!!!ther folks i finally got it off my chest<good luck to you all with your inferior products made in china!!!
