Question about RCA DRC8300N DVD Recorder/VCR
The laser sensor no longer detects any signal so the unit thinks that no disk is inserted. This can have just 2 causes:
1. if you're lucky it's just the lens that is covered in dust, that blocks the return signal. You will need to open the unit, access the mechanism, blow away all the dust with a can of compressed air and finally gently wipe the surface of the lens with a q-tip. You can use a cleaning disk but it won't work as well. If this doesn't work then
2. the laser emitting diode has failed. This is unfixable, the entire mechanism would have to be replaced and that would cost more than a new unit. Sorry, time for a new recorder.
