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.

Memorex MVD2042 says root


I already posted the solution I found just moments later. Press the DVD menu button and the word "root" goes away.

The DVD will not stop spinning. The door will not open either. When I took the cover of the players and plugged it in, the DVD just keeps spinning even when I hit STOP, OPEN, and turn the player OFF. ...


I've had this problem twice now.

The first time, I unplugged the unit for about a minute, plugged it back in and pressed the Open button. The disc was ejected and ran fine for about a week.

Then it happened again, but the unplugging didn't fix it this time.

Try this;
Unplug the unit and let it sit for a few mins to let the disc stop spinning. Then gently pull down on the DVD door. Look at the lower left side of the DVD tray and you should see a large slot. Shine a light into the slot and you will see a dime size white gear. I used a small flat head screwdriver to spin the gear to the right. After 2 small turns, the DVD tray opened enough so that I could pull it gently open. I took the DVD out, gently pushed the DVD tray back in and set the DVD player on my workbench to tinker with on a rainy day. Not sure what the root cause is, but I'll worry about that later!

DVD Player does not turn on


Check the power connection on the player. Wiggle it to see if the ON lite blinks. Polaroid has had problems with this connections. ON lite will indicate that the fuse probably is OK. But there may not be complete power to the whole player because of a bad power connection.

Magnovox MWR20V6 will not begin recording when it should.


This is more a work-around than a solution, as the unit is failing to function normally; however, having the identical problem I observed that the unit is failing to power on at 2:00 minutes before beginning recording, a necessary step to record to DVD.

My work-around is the following:

1) Set up the timer, inputting necessary date, time, etc. as normal. With the unit still powered on, start the timed recording mode by pressing timer set, as normal. You will see the red clock icon and the DVD logo iluminate on the VFD.

2) Press the Standby-On power button. This will power the unit on in VCR mode. You should at this time be unable to switch from VCR to DVD mode since the DVD is still in timer mode. LEAVE THE UNIT POWERED ON in this manner. The timer will function and the DVD will record normally.

I have no clue why my unit suddenly forgot how to power up on its own in order to record to DVD. If anyone has an answer for that one please post!

The power shuts off after a few minutes


There could be several factors. Are there any indication or failure lights/codes prior to the unit shutting down? You didn't mention where the unit is located. Does it initially start to read the disc then shut down or is there no activity at all? Please respond with some additional info & we'll go from there.

My is a Cyberhome is a DVR 1200 DVD player


Try unplugging the unit from its power supply. Wait a few moments and then plug it back in. I have the same unit and that is what I have had to do. I am afraid that we have purchased junk. This machine "works" some of the time. It usually functions well as a player but fails on numerous occasions as a recorder.
