Question about RCA DRC8030N

Remote does not work

I thought that the remote may have gone bad. Bought a new one, but still it does not work. Guess something may be wrong with the unit. The unit works itself manually. I can use all the functions such as eject/load dvds by pushing the buttons manually.

I have the same problem. the unit itself won't accept the remotes signal. i tested 2 remotes on 2 different machines, and the problem machine won't accept signals, but the good machine will from both remotes.

Here is a trick i use to see if remotes are working. most people these days have camera phones or some kind of digital camera that have a live picture feed mode before they snap an image. Grab your camera of choice and point the remote at the camera while your viewing this live feed. press any button on the remote in question and you should be able to "see" the infra red led light blinking. if you dont see any blinking then the remote is the problem. try different buttons if you dont see anything at first.

Connecting a remote control


You don't "synchronize" a device with its remote. If the remote is the same brand and is the exact model number intended for use with your DVD player it should work. If not, there may be something wrong with the remote or the DVD player.

There could be a number of possible reasons for 'no remote control' operation/function with these units. One of those could include the remote itself; this device may have a fault where its battery current drain level is too high, resulting in batteries going flat very quickly. That would be a bad remote design, or the remote itself is just defective.

Another possible reason for remote failure, and probably the most likely, is a faulty IRD controller circuit (IRD - infra-red detector/remote sensor); this circuit is governed by several components including a controller IC, and the IRD is usually a small encased metal block with holes to allow the receiver to detect the pulses from the R/C. Either this and/or the IC fails completely or partially, resulting in no remote function. This circuit is in the main unit - sometimes manufacturers under-design these circuits or use poorly rated components, hence the multitude of faults.

It's nice to be able to operate the unit with a remote as well as front panel buttons. However, since it is still relatively new, and you have some warranty, send it back to the store - don't bother trying to get this one fixed - as there is a chance something else could go wrong with this later on. I recommend that you go back to the store you bought this from and insist on an exchange unit of a better brand/model which DOES work properly, including remote, don't accept their offer to send it off to get it repaired - you want a working one NOW.

Fingers crossed that you eventually get a working product which satisfies you completely.

You may have a bad video cable, if you are using component video (3 wires) then I would suspect one of them has gone bad. If you are using composite video (rf cable or one single wire,) then you can try a new cable, If this doesn't fix the issue, then you have something wrong internally.

The remote control does not work with new batteries


It's possible new batteries could be bad, Check them with a voltage meter (if you have one) or put them in a device you know works. Make sure the polarity of the batteries is correct and they're making contact with the terminals inside the remote. If they are, you either have a defective remote or something is wrong with the sensor eye in the console.

Remote control


To get a new remote control you just go to the store you bought your dvd/vcr. They probably have some in stock, if not ask for a universal remote control.

Mintek mdp 1760


The problem could be one of two things: the screen itself has gone bad or the cable that connects the screen to the rest of the unit (inside of the casing) has a broken connection somewhere.

If you have moved the unit around a whole lot, with lots of jarring to it, the cable may have come loose, but normal movement should not cause this to happen. My guess is that the screen has gone bad, but there is one other possibility. If you can see a VERY faint image on the screen in a dark room, then there is a bad "FL inverter" board. This is the part that increases the video signal's power so that the LCD can display it and when it goes bad, the video is still there but is nearly impossible to see unless viewed in a dark room.

It seems that Mintek has gone out of business and was not sold or bought by another company, so any warranty you may have thought you had is now gone (unless you bought an extended warranty through a retail store when you purchased it). So if you have any electronics know-how, you could always take it apart and verify that all cables are fully seated, but beyond that you'd need some fairly advanced electronic component knowledge to find and fix the problem.

My recommendation: Buy a new one from a well-known manufacturer.

I think it is just a coincidence you bought the remote at the same time. Sounds to me like the pickup in the unit is bad (Laser).
