Question about RCA DRC8030N

1 Answer

Can It get a Virus?

My drc8030n is acting very erratic. Tuner sometimes works and other times gliches- ie freeze then funky electronic sound and suddenly starts back up but skips all the time in between. DVD Play/recorder seems fine but in the Library things can be normal and then go haywire. eventually it freezes and I have to unplug it for a few minutes. But it wont work for very long. I wasn't sure if it could get a virus or if the hard disk was going bad-if so where do i get another?

You can try to reset the unit by pressing and holding the play and open buttons for like 10 seconds ( do this while there is no DVD inside and while in the main Menu screen....also, you will loose ALL data when this is done). If this does not change the problem, then it is most likely due to a power issue. I have corrected this problem by swapping out the power assembly in the unit. If interested in a unit (it is a unit that is stuck on the HELLO issue..so non-working) that can be used for parts, then contact me at www.suncitybargains.ecrater.com

Finalized disk won't play in other players


You might check your burner to see if it is working correctly. If you are using the same media and it worked before, perhaps the burner or the burning software is not working correctly.

RCA DRC8030N No output


Connect the unit as you normally would using the composite cables. Once you turn the unit on and the RCA logo flashes and then the video *poof*, dissappears, press the Video Out button on the remote control so that the PS OFF (progressive output for S-Video) is shown on the LCD, this should get the video back to normal.

That sounds about right if you have cable instead of an antenna cable. If it can't tune anything but 5 channels in, that's all it claims; set it to CABLE IN instead and try that so the tuner can get along with your cable box. If you really do have an antenna hooked up, get it away from whatever's reflecting signal and screwing up reception.

These units have flaky TV tuners. Try connecting the coax cable (the one with the cable television signal or antena) to the back of your TV first and from there take the output to the input of the DVR. By doing this, you will beusing your TVs TV tuner vs the DVR's flaky one.
