Question about RCA DRC247N DVD Player

1 Answer

Almost dead. How can I get DVD out of it?

So, I put in a DVD and a few minutes later I notice the power light is off but the word "root" is lit. Pushing the power button does nothing. Pulling the plug does nothing. At this point my main concern is getting the DVD out. Unless someone has a really simple fix.

thanks, ****

    No hole that I can find. Thanks, anyway.
    I'll leave it unplugged tonight and if cooling it off doesn't help I'll break out the SawsAll.

    I see there are some screws marked with arrows on the back. Maybe that's what you remove to open the cover?

    And mine died the same way -- root (seemed kind of dim) on the screen but not responding. Unplugged it for a couple of hours and now it's not coming up at all.

Microwave went totally dead while operating; there is power to the outlet.

If the control panel lights up intermittently, then you either have a loose connection somewhere near the panel, or a failing component on the circuit board itself.

Unplug your power supply and leave it off for like ten minutes, then replug it and see if it will initiate itself, if not it sounds like serious malfunction.
