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.

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.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, could be:
  • cable/connector problem;
  • 12VDC power supply/regulator;
  • monitor itself. Could be tested with another external video source and a shorter RCA to RCA cable.
Check and perform preliminary visual or necessary inspection. Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

RCA DRC630N-M 12v DC portable DVD player (dual-screen). After a year of successful plays on road trips, the device only recognizes commercial DVDs 25% of the time. It will spin and wind up to speed, but...

You can clean if you open it. Just clean lens (eye) with ear stick weted with alcohol (not aceton!!!) and if it dont want to read after that, it require laser change.

Blank Screen

The screen in your dvd might not be getting the volts it needs to work,the ribbon cable that comes from the base gets broken sometimes because of the hinge action of open and closing constanly.You need to call RCA at 877-794-7977 and ask for an estimate or an idea of how could cost to repair.Good luck.
