Question about RCA DRC8335

RCA DRC8335: shows "padlock" symbol

We have had the vcr/dvd combo for a while. It recently locked up as if someone did a combination code or something and "locked" it. It does the "HELLO" message, then says "READING", then finally the "NO DISK" display. But it will not accept any input on the remote or console except for the power button.It shows a "padlock" symbol. I have lost the manual so..... no luck there. Any help would be nice. Thanks

    I've had problems with this model locking up but unplugging usually reset everything although it seemed to be happening more and more frequently and I've had to update the date/time whenever this happened. Now I get 'HELLO' running across non-stop no matter what I do. Any assistance with this will be greatly appreciated.

    I am having the same issue. I play my DVD-R's, and they may play fine, but other times it causes the system to lock up. So I have reset by unplugging it all the time. It happens around 95& of the time i play DVD-R's, and sometimes DVD+R's.

    the lock box shows on the front of the dvd, it will start to play then stops and says searching for signal. I cannot find my owners manual, I do not have a code to put in, everything I have tried says it's wrong password

Mark. Use the emergency factory-set master password 9688 to cancel and remove any previously owner set parental control password. Refer to page 26 of the User Manual if needed.

    Apparently it never crossed the RCA programming engineer's mind to make the emergency master password 8335 which would've been far more intuitive and easier to remember, in an emergency! Some people were born without any imagination whatsoever. Most of those become programmers apparently. (I'm allowed to say that as I happen to be one by profession :o).

The loading basket is defective, or the loading gears are out of alignment. Check for broken gears, belts, and a twisted basket after removing the top cover. If speed is an issue you may need to take it to a technician to see if it can be salvaged.

I want to use rcr311w remote for rca t25208 tv but couldn't


This remote does not handle combination TV/VCR devices. You will need a different remote. You can get an exact replacement remote here: http://remotes.com/store/rca/t25208.html .

It will control the TV with the code 1000 (most likely). Other RCA TV codes are 11447, 10051, 10093, 10679, 11047, 11147, 11247, 11347, 11781, 12002, 12187. The manual and code list for the remote are available here: http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/support/?kw=RCR311W . The VCR part uses a code that isn't programmed into the remote. (Remotes generally only have codes for devices released 6 months or more before the remote was programmed. Many of the older RCA universal remotes never had their coding lists updated to include combination units.)

BTW, the manual for your TV is here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/14623/RCA-TV-VCR-or-DVD-Combo-L0109139?brand_name_search=entertainment .

I wish that I had better news.

VCR won't accept tapes


VHS VCRs are not being produced in very large quantities any more. You may still be able to find a combo unit DVD/VCR.

The problem may be a belt or gear, or it may be that the tray is damaged. Only a tech can tell you, but there's little point in repairing these. I know Wal-Mart still sells them...

The codes for a combo set are found in the DVD settings or the VCR settings. Try the rca codes for DVD or Vcr and it should work. Although you may find that not all the functions will work properly ( ie: fast forward, open door, etc ). Good Luck
