Did you solve problem with the RCA DVD/Recorder?

Hello Ziggy1. My name is Robert. leaf1@LeafLover.com I think you can upgrade the Firmware on this unit so it will use the current blank DVDs, I think these are 16x ? I also have this player and would like to upgrade mine. I thought I would need to call RCA and find out how to download new Firmware and then write it to a DVD and then run it on the player to upgrade the Firmware? What do you think?

    Operating System? I am talking about an RCA DVD Recorder model DRC-8295. It is a little older and will only allow recording to 8x (slower) blank DVDs. But, I believe I can download new firmware to my pc... write it on a dvd... and then run it on the DVD recorder in order to upgrade the firmware on the device. This way allowing use of blank DVDs 16x, I think, that are available for sale. The slower DVDs are not even available to purchase anymore, I think. Any advice?

    For an objective look at your machines capabilities

    Try search these reveiw links,



    http://www.hobbydo.com/home-theater/dvd-...



    http://www.videohelp.com/dvdrecorders?DV...



    I found the were many questions on the subject of dvd recorders and I also read a couple of the better reveiws on your machine,

    The links cover many issues and how to deal with them,

    the firmware update may only be available from the manufacturer,

    maybe another models' drivers will give you the functionality,

    so many models around have update sites that seem to be difficult to navigate thru to the correct spot to get what your looking for,



    As far as the disk type should be DVD+R/RW

    some work better than others but I was basing my brandfindings on Verbatim disk,

    I've used for back up disks for customers lots over the years,

    they work nice and are a reasonable price too.



    Hope this helps,

There is not a battery in your unit, but it does sound like that switch does not work anymore. If you are good at soldering, you can change the switch in a short amount of time.

Dvd recorder won't play disc


your recorder will normally give you 5 changes at different regions, and on the last region change that is the one that it stays on, although if you you have never changed the region go to> my computer>right click on your dvd drive>properties and on the hardware tab, your hard drive and dvd drive will show, highlight your dvd drive and click properties and click the dvd regions tab and look at the region to see wot its set at, if you still have 5 changes, it should be set at your region one, if there are no changes left you need to search and download a region free dvd programme to allow any region dvd to be played programme

Hi, please find above your user manual and your service manual below/
http://www.fixdevice.com/smanuals/file/38174.html
OK perhaps you may need to now upgrade the firmware or re-set up the player again using the service mode, please find all this info in these manual above. It may just be co-incidental, or perhaps your laser assembly is going faulty. Often though, it has to do with CODECs not being installed. or activated, you need to check your manuals for information.
I would wonder if the swap out, hasn't reset all your playback settings? Or the Brain, is thinking it is a differing unit now? and setting it up again may just fix your problem. Anyway please use the service and repair manual's troubleshooting procedures you should be able to isolate and hopefully repair your unit.

Dvd will not eject. tray will not open. pressing open causes "hello hello". is there a way to manually force the tray to open without damaging the dvd?


The DRC8052N / DRC8052NB / DRC8052NC DVD recorder (sorry cab209, not a PC) has had a LOT of problems. So many that RCA doesn't even list it on their site! There was a firmware upgrade that supposedly fixed this, but I'm having trouble finding it on the web.

As to how to remove DVD:
1) Try unplugging the machine and leaving it unplugged for 10 to 15 minutes. then (without plugging it back in) press the power button repeatedly. (I know it sounds goofy but it came from customer support. Theory: to drain all power) Plug it back in and try to eject.
2) Another owner suggested holding down the HDMI button on the remote. The "hello" mesage is an initialization/power-on routine, so my guess would be it was powered off with the disc in it?
3) Unplug it. Remove the cover (two silver screws on each side and three black screws on the back). Slide the cover off (to the rear). Take the four small screws out of the top of the drive (marked LOADER on mine. Lift out the DVD. Reassemble.
While you have it apart..... You might also look at the circuit board next to the drive in the center of the unit. It has a bunch of capacitors (black or blue, cylindrical, w/ X or Y stamped in the end). If any of these are no longer flat on the X or Y end or have yellow 'goo' on or around them, they have failed and are the source of your problem. They can be replaced, but it may be more cost effective to replace the entire unit.

I have a JVC DR MV7SU DVD/Video recorder. How do


If your camcorder allows you to connect to a tv or vcr and allows you to record from it to the camcorder via the rca video input, then you should be able to record it that.  The camcorder must have the RCA audio/video inputs on it to be successful.

Rca dvd\vcr locked on hello


The hello issue is most likely a faulty DVD-RW. These go out on thse models more than usual. Reset is a combination of 2 buttons. Press and hold the play and disk tray open or the power and play ( i forgot the exact sequence but you get my drift, press 2 buttons for about 10 seconds). You can also update the firmware...or atleast could before from RCA.COM but they no longer support this midel. I do have the software update on CD but it won't do any good on Hello issue. If worst comes to worst, open the player up and replace the DVD-RW drive.

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.

Lite on LVW 5005 NOT WORKING


This is a common problem with the Lite-on LVW range of DVD recorders due to changes in the construction of more recent DVD R media. It can be solved with a relatively simple firmware upgrade.

Goto : http://r00.liteonit.com.tw/DC/english/download/index.asp

You'll need to have a blank CD and a CD/DVD writer in the PC you use to download the file.

Follow the instructions on the website to upgrade your firmware, this should then allow you to write to DVD's once again.
