RCA DRC8030N - Date/Time setting unstable

Hi there. The date/time on my DRC8030N - RCA DVD Recorder changes without any effort from me! Is this a common issue with this unit? It's not due to poweroutages, unplugging, nothing like that - this has happened twice in the past month, and I just can't imagine why. (I believe it finds its way to about 2 weeks ahead...)

Thanks!

I have plenty of spare power boards so you can replace the whole board vs. components. I can have one shipped at $10 plus shipping.

RCA model DRC8335 Loosing the date and time


That will be a problem from the text side of the broadcast, the clock is set from the text transmission, ( in other words a problem from the transmitter ) possibly due to digital switchover or work on the transmitters. One possible solution would be to turn off auto clock setting, and/or auto summer time adjustment.

Can,t Record from VCR to DVD


Make sure you have your VCR connected to the recorder by either the ANTENNA cable or 3 A/V cords. Make sure the recorder is on whatever output channel the VCR is set on (switch on the back of the VCR) for RF, or that the VCR is set for AV output and the recorder is set for Input 1 for the back of the recorder. You should be able to see a picture on the recorder of what's playing on the VCR. If you got that far, then you should be able to record the incoming program using the menu features of the RCA 8030. I hope this helps.
I need a manual for this machine if anyone has one.

the DVD Drive is bad. Replace it with the same (which I haven't been able to find anywhere on the internet) or one off the shelf (a little jerry-rigging is involved) and it will work. Everything else should be fine. This exact same thing happened to me.

I want to find a replacement for DRC8030N


you can replace the DVD-RW yourself with any computer DVD/DVD-rw drive.  You will need to modify the way it sits in the unit as the screw holes will be different and some drilling will most likely be needed to make new screw holes.  Finding an original replacement DVD-RW for this unit will be hard because the first problem that this unit has is a constant HELLO message due to a faulty DVD-RW, so they are in high demand.

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.

HDD & DVD PLAYER/RECORDER / time date


Hi,
Is there an option To Save Settings, after setting the time-date ?
Most devices usually have a small internal battery or memory chip that stores this information. however there are also devices that when power is removed completely. i.e a power failure or switched off at the mains, time and date settings have to be reset.
Hope this solves your problem.
Mike @ Compurepair.

Change the Scart setting (in the setup menu) from the default setting (RGB) to the other available setting (CVSC?).
I have a problem with my box restting the clock on a random basis, making it impossible to set a timer to record anything - let us know if you get the same problem via this site!
