Question about RCA DRC290

1 Answer

Rca drc290 i am having problems with my drc290. basically the blue light comes on the power button and then it sounds like it is shuffling through the disc slots....but then nothing happens and it powers off and nothing displays on the screen...i checked to see if a dvd was stuck inside but i can't see it if it is and for some reason you have to unplug it and plug it back in, in order to get the power to work again? HELP ME....it's not mine it's my boyfriend and I know he is going to blame it on me...But I didn't touch it last he did and then when I go to watch something it's not working....?

    Same problem, my mother in law called me to check it out. I get the blue light when I power on, and the only responsive buttons are the power and play, It shuffles a little then powers off without any more functionality at all. I have to unplug and replug it in to even get the blue light back on. I have no clue what's wrong. There are no discs in the unit.

    Mine alternates between the welcome screen and loading. Before that it would attempt to load the disc, then display "no disc"

    I am having the same problem.  When I pulled the player out from the entertainment stand, I noticed what sounded like broken parts rattling around inside.  I took the cover off and found a capacitor had swelled and popped it's cover.  Tomorrow, I'll go to Radio **** to get another to replace it with.  I am fairly confident this will work because I just changed caps out on my two year broken Phillips DVP642 dvd player.  I will post results when I am finished.

Will my rca dvd player, DRC 290 play each of my five dvds in sequence without a prompt from me at the end of each dvd? If so, how do I set this up?


It will not do this during basic playback. You may be able to use the programmed Playback. Press Program when the unit is not playing back a DVD. Then use the numeric input buttons to choose the title or track. Then use the up/down and right left arrows to enter additional titles to playback.

You can find your manual here: http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/manual.aspx?product=125

I hope this helps.

RCA DRC290 "No Disk"


The noise you hear is an attemp to read the disk, which fails. If you can gain access to the optics assembly, try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails to resolve the problem, the optics are likely failed and will need to be replaced.

Hope this helps,

Unit no longer powers on


Sounds terminal.
Is the movie yours? How mechanically inclined are you?
If not so much, better bring it to a professional to remove the movie.

Get error no disk. the disk in not turning inside the player


If your disc/dvd/cd isn;t turning in the machine it is most likely that you need to replace the laser assembly, which is the entire assembly with the drawer, the laser and the spndle motor, which is the small motor that spins the disc. Good Luck.
