Question about RCA DRC275 DVD Player
Faulty switchmode power supply in the unit, due to several failed components including electrolytic capacitors which may have leaked. Look for bulging or leaky caps, and burn-marks on the PCB, around IC regulators (these can be 3 or 5 pin devices and they stand upright on the board) - chances are 1 or more of these ICs has short-circuited as well as the caps.
You can take the player to a service repair centre for a quote on the likely cost(s) involved to restore this unit to working order, as well as a second opinion, then you can make a positive decision afterwards as to whether it will be economical to fix or not. Up to you. I warn you that it could be expensive; equal to or more than the price of a new unit.
New players (even Blu-Ray with DVD playback support) are becoming cheaper to buy nowadays, while repairs to this and similar model DVD players become more expensive, often with suitable replacement parts not being available. If you truly love this little player, and you want it working, consider the abovementioned workshop quote suggestion first.
