I fix these type of DVD recorders for a living, and I can tell you with certainty that you have a malfunction that can not be resolved without having the unit serviced. The biggest problem you will have with this one is that RCA dos not sell parts for these or any of the equipment like this any more. If it is under warranty it must be sent to RCA for repair or replacement. If not under warranty you will not be able to get it serviced if it needs parts. Anyplace can try to fix it, but since you can't get parts for it, it may be a futile effort.
It seems like a microprocessor malfunction but without having it in front of me to troubleshoot I can not say for certain, and if it is not under waranty your best bet is to get a new one. I would stay away from RCA if I were you, another brand would serve you better. They have gotten pretty bad the last few years with how cheap they make stuff.
Try a Panasonic, they are not as hard to get serviced. There are many authorized service centers for them. Sony makes a decent recorder but service would require sending it to Mexico.

Combines the picture and sound quality advantages of a DVDplayer with the convenient recording and playback options of a videocassetterecorder. Record your own DVDs with this versatile unit that also includes ahi-fi VCR. Uses the DVD-R/RW DVD format for recording, and will play back theother popular format of DVD+R/RW. The multidrive recorders on the DRC8295Nallow you to record onto DVD-R discs or re-recordable DVD-RW discs. DVD-Rcopies of recordings made by the DRC8295N will play on almost all DVD playersand DVD-compatible computers. You can record anywhere from one hour (highestquality) to four hours (VHS quality). The DRC8295N DVD player/recorder from RCAcombines a versatile digital video recorder with a high-end DVD player. Youllenjoy a stunningly realistic picture and warm, natural sound from your DVDlibrary as well as programs you record. The DRC8295N is a powerful addition toyour home theater. In addition to playing a full range of DVDs, the DRC8295Nplays CDs and MP3 audio files, so you can enjoy your favorite music. You canalso view digital JPEG photos from CDs created in your computer with theDRC8295N.
While it now occassionally hangs up due to the high usage Ihave put it through as well as its age-overall it still is a solid machine. Theone minor problem the machine seems to have is that it messes up on R disks ona regular basis but only occassionally does it mess up on RW which you cansimply erase and reuse. So I now only use RW disks with the machine and thushave very few problems! The main feature I like with the unit which I have notbeen able to find on other combination vcr-dvd recorders is the ability to"edit" RW disks. The particular neat feature about this machine isthat( if you record programs off the air or have videos which have commercialsalready on the tape) you can "HIDE" the commercials upon playback. Inother words once the disk has been "edited" and you play it back youcan choose to either watch it with the commercials viewable or watch the diskwith the commercials not viewable (ie hidden). It is quite a neat feature.

You should be able to record. I would check the manual and make sure they haven't built something into this recorder that none other has.

Recent case law has determined that you STILL have the right to record off the TV for your a VHS or if you have the ability to record onto a DVD as well. The courts have also ruled that you have the right to make a backup copy of a DVD that you purchased and in this purchase you have paid the royalties to do so.
You can use a PC and a DVD recorder to make a backup copy of your DVD and bypass the copy protection scheme. A program most people use for this private personal use is AnyDVD or DVD Shrink. You can Google it and get a copy
There are also codes to disable the copy protection chip on your player so long as you do this for home personal private use. You are on your own to find out how to defeat Macrovision on your Recorder.
