Question about RCA DRC627N Portable DVD Player

2 Answers

RCA DRC630N portable dvd player - blank screen, controls don't work (but powers up)

Note to FixYa:  you don't have a selection for this unit in the product dropdown (hint hint) so I chose the closest model.
My DRC630N will power up, the disc will spin up, but screen is blank.  If I connect to external monitor I can see the menu (and audio works on both the unit as well as the monitor).  But controls are disabled (cannot leave main dvd enu).
The screen and control panel fold out from the unit to allow dvd insertion.
That fold-out is connected by a small multi-wire ribbon cable, so that both the screen and controls. would seem to be affected by the same thing.  (Loose ribbon cable?).
I've seen lots of examples on many players, particularly this unit.  But if anybody can opine on the common causes (particularly in view of the specifics I mention above, that'd be great).
I'm way past their 90-day parts-only warranty anyway.

    I'm guessing it's more than loose connection on the ribbon cable but since it's a paperweight I'm tempted to crack it open.

    At least the satellite monitor is still useful as a satellite.

    I know the problem with mine is the loose cable. were you able to get the unit apart? i have removed the 6 screws on the back, but it is still held together near the top and bottom center edges. how does it come apart? i could pull harder, but i'm afraid i may break something.

How can I re-categorize a question?

Hi Andrew,

You can send a quick note to the Fixya Support Team and they can help you categorize your question properly. Also note, that level 3 experts are also allowed to moderate problems posted to the wrong category.

When asking a question it's helpful to select a product from the dropdown instead of just typing in a specific product name. That will make sure that you have selected the correct product.

Hope that helps!

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.

On a Shimano Deore LX rear axle, part of the thread is machined off. What is the advantage in this? ps, sorry this doesn't match the 'product' selected in the dropdown window - it was the closest option...

There is a washer on the hub that is not supposed to spin, so it has a "key" in it that matches the machined area of the axle.

Hope this answers your question,
