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.

RCA DRC-285 DVD Player won't respond


hi, 2 things usually cause this kind of behaviour 1-the dvd+r have been burnt at a high speed 2-the dvd player itself is a bit old when you burn your dvd+R always burn them at a lower speed lowest if possible it'll take longer but it's well worth it and you wouldn't have a problem playing them back

We have a RCA VCR Model VR622HF Manf. 9-18-98 that suddenly won't turn on manually OR with remote. I am an experienced Electronic Tech with 43 years @ ATT. I measured the resistance at the AC Plug and read...


Hi,
If front display lit up when vcr plugged in that means power supply is working and issue is in system control section, and if front display remains dark while vcr plugged in wall socket then power supply is defective.
As you know its an old model vcr so I do not think spare parts would be available any more, I found good option for you to fix this vcr.
Click eBay.com link to get same vcr in working order for $40 that can be used to obtain either power supply or any other board/ parts to repair your vcr.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

I purchased a RCA DRC-8335 DVD/VCR RECORDER COMBO


For anyone who has an RCA DRC 8335 with dvd Recorder, here is a suggestion.
If your tapes have been recorded in SLP Mode, om another player, I can tell you they will NOT play on this thing!!
So, merely take another VCR, and a blank tape, Place the blank tape into the RCA DRC 8335 VCR side, and then, go to its Set-Up Menu, and go to OUTPUT. On the "ACTION BAR"Change the the RCA's output to "FRONT" and then, play the VCRr you stuck on top of the RCA!!
When the inage on the "Source tape is shown,
Record onto the RCA, in SLP Mode, Now, it will play, just fine.
Hope this helps. Jon (Found BY Accident!!)

Still can't find a code for Electron LCDTV


You have joined the ranks of those who have several 'universal' remotes. They aren't. They are, at best, multidevice or multibrand remotes and even the 'learning' remotes don't learn from some originals. The use of the word 'universal' is a fraudulent nomenclature.
In looking at the product description, I noticed this:
"The DRC450 remote control is designed specifically to work with all Motorola and General Instrument Digital Cable Terminals."
It was then never designed to handle any updating.
You might try to obtain newer codes from the Motorola site for your model:
Motorola DRC-450
I didn't see any provisions for updating the code set via computer so it will likely never do what you want.
