Question about RCA DRC8052N DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Remote doesn't work, had played dvd but now won't do that

RCA DRC8052N DVD Recorder & included remote RCA RCR192DA1
My sister brought me her DVD recorder she had never set up--she bought it over a year ago so there is no warranty. I have set it up & while the cable guy was here--even had him check it out to see if I had set it up wrong. The remote only opens/closes-- None of the setup will work from the remote. I disconnected my home theater set up and then I could at least play movies on it for the first week. Now it won't even do that. I have an off brand tv (Symphonic) I thought maybe the game setup had been engaged but that doesn't seem to be the problem. Is there hope for this seemingly piece of junk?

How do i record with my dvd player/recorder?

You have to go to Menu Page select timers and from there you can record your programs to record at any time. If you are watching something you want to record click on REC on remote it should have a little red dot on the button,then it will take you to where you program how long you want to record.

Hope this helps Donna

Have you checked the input? If you don't have the DVD selected for the input you won't see anything.

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.
