The closest thing I could find for a free download of a User's manual is the DRC8320N manual here :
http://www.curtisint.com/html/CustService/Manuals/RCA_DRC8320N_EN.PDF
If you are not getting hte help you need from that, you can go to :
www.RCA.com/customersupport
or try calling directly:
(866) 775 - 0976
From the information provided in the user's manual that I found, as soon as the disk is in the player and initialized, you should automatically get the disk menu, like most DVD players. If this is not the case, then there might be a manufacturer's defect in the machine, or something else might be going wrong, but repairing the issue would have to be hands-on ... so it could require a repair shop. Give the customer support number a shot before you spend any money on getting it fixed, though ... just in case there is something I was missing -- they should know their products better than me :-)

The disc loading mechanism to your combo is faulty. To repair it, you have to disassemble the whole unit. It is a skilled work. Seek tech support.

Had power outage and now VCR/DVD does not turn back on. lights all work but it doesn't seem to pick up the channel?


Dis-connect the plug from the wall receptical and other leads attached to to the unit. Next press and hold power for too minutes in an attempt to reset the microprocessor, now hook everything back up and power on, if this fails it probably would be cheaper to replace the combo than have it repaired.

DVD Player doesn't work on DRC6355N VCR/DVD Combo


With most dvd/vcr combo units there is separate wiring. When I use my emerson combo unit I have it wired that I have to be on different inputs on my tv to view a dvd and a vhs. On some units the vcr portion is wired via a regular cable line, while the dvd portion is wired with the yellow, red, and white component cable. Try inserting a dvd and scrolling through your tv inputs until you find the picture or check your wiring to ensure nothing has come loose. If that has no result you could try wiring it differently if possible to eliminate that as a possibility.

This unit has seperate power supplies for the DVD and VCR side and the DVD side supply seems prone to failure. I have not isolated the cause, but can tell you this will require a component level repair. Unless you are a tech you may as well buy a new unit.
