Question about RCA DRC212N DVD Player

1 Answer

When I turn my DVD player on and put a DVD in, the DVD plays automatically until the menu screen comes up on the TV. At this point, the display on the DVD player shows "root" and I can not select or move around on the menu as the remote does not respond. I have changed the batteries and that has not resolved the problem. Is it possible that my DVD remote is no longer set / programmed to operate the DVD player? I would appreciate your help! Thank you.

    As suggested, I started the DVD by pressing the play button on the DVD player. Whatever the issue was, the DVD player is now responding to the remote. Thank you!

The remote could be broken. What happens when you press play on the DVD player this should start the movie. You can buy a cheap univesal RCA remote if you need to replace the old one.

Hi, I have a Sharp DV-RW360H which has been working fine. I have dubbed various VHS tapes to DVD and now need to finally the discs so they can play in other machines. However when I press the setup button...


Try one of the discs in another machine. You only need to finalise them if you want to ensure no more is put on them. To finalise a disc you need to use the write or burn functions, not the setup menu. Get the manual for this from the sharp website and read it.

When I play DVD's my tv screen gets a rectangle box on it, the VHS is fine, it's just the DVD player.


Yes! you are right, this almost sounds like a captions problem, check the DVD/VCR Combo menu, if it has captions turn it off using your remote.

Can't get new DVD player to play


On some sets there is a button on your remote marked "TV/VIDEO" or some such text. With your tv and player hooked up and working, pushing that button will switch from TV to video and back.

On other sets, if you keep changing channels, you will eventually come to one that turns off the video broadcast and plays the DV.

Good Luck

Wont play dvd jensen vm9311


You can bypass all that. Here's how:

This will work without having to do anything to the pink wire - just tape it and leave it alone. But the next time you unhook your battery cable you will have to put the code in again.

Put in DVD
When the blue screen comes up, hit STOP twice on the remote
punch in 1,2,6, and 4
hit DOWN 1 time
hit PLAY/ENTER (although you can't see it, this turns off the parking brake bypass security feature)

**at this point the display became visible and you will now see the menu which makes it much easier.
hit DOWN one more time to change macrovision
hit PLAY/ENTER
hit SYS SETUP twice to save and exit menu

From now on, you can just put in a movie and it'll start - no more grounding or toggle switch procedure, and you don't have to use the e-brake.

How to unlock it to play either NTSC/PAL


Here is the sequence to unlock your DV Player. Clearly this needs to be done exactly to access the secret menu. So, you may want to copy and paste this info into a word program and then print it.

- Begin -
1. Turn off NS55P, leave TV on.
2. Using the original remote supplied with the NS55P, press these buttons in order: DISPLAY, TOP MENU, CLEAR, POWER.
3. NS55P will turn on, displaying the secret menu on the tv screen.
4. Select 2: Drive Manual Operation, then 4: Tray Aging Mode.
5. The screen then shows two input lines: Input Count and Current Count. Use the code 00030 on the first line. Pressing zero first will take you back to the original menu, so instead of trying to type 0-0-0-3-0, try something like 1-0-0-0-3-0 so the 1 in the front disappears after the last zero is entered.
6. Press ENTER on the remote. Disk tray will then open and close automatically 30 times. Let it do this until it finishes.
7. Repeat steps 4-6, but instead of using 00030 in the Input Count, use 00000. Press ENTER, and the NS55P is now capable of reading Region 2 dvds.

- End -

Sony DVD player color adjustment (Model #DVP-N5400D)


Solved the problem!Well, After reading two manuals on the Sony DVD player, I saw one cable not connected: the S Video connection. I connected that. Tried it out again, seemed a little better, but still not the full range of reds. At that point I thought the problem was either: 1) the cables from the DVD player to the TV or 2) the DVD player is the problem So, I thought I'd start with replacing the cables. Labeled them as to where they went, took them out and went to Radio Shack and explained my problem. The clerk I spoke to was very nice, said he had seen this problem before, and said there was a menu on the DVD for adjusting RGB settings.
So, I went back home, plugged in the cable, and went all thru the 2 Sony DVD booklets and the display menu on the TV. There was nothing mentioned re: color settings. Went thru the DVD menu many times, looking, looking. I felt I had come up with nothing.
Turned everything off. Turned back on. Put in a DVD: It looks great! :)
So, hoping it never happens again..cause I'm not sure I can repeat it! Maybe it was removing all the cables from their sockets and restarting...I know that sometimes works with computers...anyway.. At least I didn't have to buy a new DVD! Lesson: unplug, re:plug...before you trash it!

Tv/dvd combo only plays dvd's in black and white


Finally figured this out. On your remote push tv menu until you get to function. You should automatically be under col.sys. change this to NTSC. Took me awhile to get remote to work here, ended up pushing in the middle of the red vol +,- bar on the right of the remote. Couldn't find the right button according to the directions on the screen. DVD is now in color!! If you are not already on the option to change col.sys, use the red channel up down bar on the left of the remote.
