    I have the same thing, It almost looks like the AC board has been hot with a couple of resistors possibly bad.

    Same thing happened to me.  The tray was empty and stuck at hello.  I took the top off, then took the top off the loader and put in a dvd.  Now if I keep a dvd in the loader it works, but not when it is empty.   Strange........

RCA OBVIOUSLY IS USING CHEAP DVD drives that either lock up or just decomission themeselves. You need to replace the drive with a spare. Any computer DVD drive will work, you just may need to modify the screw holes.

From everything i have been reading, this is a common error to occur with this machine. Unless you want to send it to RCA and pay to have it fixed, you might have to think about getting a new machine. There is nothing that can be done to fix it. Sorry. Good Luck.

My DVD Recorder & VCR (DRC8320N) has Hello on display


Even though the power light may be off the unit is still on. It will be warm on top. Unplug the unit for 30 minutes and plug it back in, that will usually reset it.

Rca dvd\vcr locked on hello


The hello issue is most likely a faulty DVD-RW. These go out on thse models more than usual. Reset is a combination of 2 buttons. Press and hold the play and disk tray open or the power and play ( i forgot the exact sequence but you get my drift, press 2 buttons for about 10 seconds). You can also update the firmware...or atleast could before from RCA.COM but they no longer support this midel. I do have the software update on CD but it won't do any good on Hello issue. If worst comes to worst, open the player up and replace the DVD-RW drive.

Dvd player/recorder


Like many RCA products that use a DVD Burner, these burners are not high end ones and go out without warning and the first indication is the dreaded HELLO issue. I have tried contacting RCA and the makers of the DVD-RW drives but still I am in the dark as to any possible firmware/software updates for these devices. No fix to this date, only replacing the DVD-RW will resolve this.

I have a dvd recorder/player Rca DRC8052N


you need the crack ! it seems that your players might have a onboard misfonction! it maybe coded for region 2,3 who knoes anyway try this its a workaround that usually works on lots of dvd players to unlock regions !

Press the title button on your remote, then hit 01. This will take you to the first title on the disc and bypass the region lock. To get to the main menu, do a chapter/title skip until you get to the end of the disc. This will take you to the main menu.
