Question about RCA DRC8052N DVD Recorder

6 Answers

Rca drc8052nb only says ''hello'' on screen, can anyone help?

The unit will not turn on. I've read that I should unplug it, so I did and then when I plug it back in it just says ''hello'' on the screen, but doesn't respond to any remotes presses, or button presses on the front.

    I played a movie on this, and when it was over, I pressed open/close. The DVD came out and I removed it from the tray. Went to put another DVD in, and the tray closed by itself. When I tried to press the open button on the front , it just said open on the display. Unplugged the unit and waited. Plugged the unit back in and it would only read "Hello". Any help would be great Thanks.

    Hello, I had the same problem and went to get it looked at. The shop told me the main control board was fried. We had to buy a new player. Look on local classified websites. I'm a big fan of Kijiji.com but that's in canada. Not sure if you're in canada, but u should check it out, We got a really nice recorder for $40.

    I am having the same problem, but I was able to run a dvd off an external dvd drive I hooked up to the rca drc8052nb . So the motherboard cant be fried.

    I have had this problem for a long time, and yes it had to be unplugged each time, then would work. This is obviously a manufacture's defect and we should be sent new equipment that works under the warranty, even if the warranty is expired. My board is not fried. I am a certified electonics technician and checked it.

    There was a similar problem with Epson printers and people were at least given a coupon for purchasing another item after a law suit.

RCA DRC 8052NB does nothing but displays "HELLO"

Among the voltages available from the power supply is a 3-volt source. The first capacitor after the diode is a 1000 microfarad, 6.3-volt unit. There were no signs of leakage of overheating, but I changed it anyway. Voila! the unit came to life. Hope this helps.

My friend has the same model and the same problem it says hello. When we held the power button  down the clock would come the screen. We work on electronic equipment for aliving. We traced the problem to the power supply board. You have to take the screws out to remove the cover. If you don't feel comfortable doing this find   someone who does. You also need to be able to remove componets from the aboard. The power supply is the smaller board to the right of the dvd tray. The capacitors brake down and lose some of the cap MFD value. The capacitor that went bad  was a 1000 MFD 6.3 volt. We replaced it with a voltage  thats higher then 6.3. You can check voltage with a volt meter. I think the votage numbers are on the board. Look on both sides of the connectors. Sorry we don't have the cap location number put they put it back together before I could get it.
If this helps some people let me hear it. E-Mail [email protected]

According to montilla (his link is dead) the solution is discussed in this thread: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_jump.cfm/143317/4227459

it says that the problem is caused by faulty capacitors C1260, C1270, and C1271 which can be burst or leaking.
here is photo http://i38.tinypic.com/nehn5e.jpg with these capacitors.

They can be subtituted by 1000uF 25V capacitors ( they are 680uF 16V)

These faulty capacitors can also cause problem with proper finalizing written discs.

I also had this same problem with my DRC8052NB. After a power outage it would no longer turn on and was stuck on "HELLO". Like neveo1999 and roybro123, I replaced the 1000uF, 6.3V capacitor (C22, which on mine also did not show any signs of bulging or leaking), and now it seems to be OK. The capacitor I replaced it with was 1000uF, 16V.

Before I replaced the capacitor, the 3.3V output was only in the 2.8V range. Now it's right up at 3.3V again. Thanks for the info!

D drive is lost


absolutely no noticeable noise (reading) during startup, no detection of a separate disk drive (my computer), then you've possibly left something unplugged or the CD drive has an electrical prob. with it. All disk drives always have a large flat datacable for readingwriting, data-transfer and a small separat cable for power which both need to be plugged in the proper direction safely with all the valuable pins which can't be damaged, even once... Unless you have good experience with CP hardware repair, I'd respectfully recommend carefully examining your changes you've made since the first removal and try to verify all the changes have been made correctly.

1 have a 6 year-old Mitsubishi model WS-48511 series 1080 rear projection TV that now won't turn on. A few days ago we shut the TV off, and now when i plug it in the blinking green power light...


This is called the blinking green light of death-----only one of two things can cause this problem.

First: remove front speaker grill (IT PULLS OFF) AND remove inspection plate behind it; look for the two bundles of wires coming down and to the right from the front keyboard of the set.

Unplug both plugs you find (different and marked so you cannot mix them up-----the idea is to take the front keyboard out of circuit-----set will still function with remote as receiver is behind front screen)

Try (after 70 seconds) to turn on with remote

If it comes on---defective reset button on front keyboard----use set only with remote or remove and remove actual reset switch---it is located behind and part of frame for screen----entire front screen would have to be removed to get at it.

Second: if disconnection of the front keyboard does not help, the DM unit is bad.

As you look from back of set it is large metal box at extreme left side.

The blinking light is the unit trying to "Boot" up-----these have a problem where caps and a few other parts in that unit fail-----kits on the net are available----Mitsubishi no longer sells or services these units but PTS Electronics does repair them.


Let me know if you have questions and try disconnection of the front keyboard FIRST.

My sky + is stuck on standby, i,ve tried holding directional key and switching on/off the green lights flash but the box goes back into standby regards dave


Hello Dave, Hold the left and right buttons down on the front of your sky + box then unplug and plug back in the power. Hold these down until the circle LED shows then press the select button in the middle. This does a factory reset.

Once this is Done unplug from the back of the Sky+ box then hold down the backup button and plug back in until all the lights are on... on the front of your box. Updating software should be showen on the screen whilest this is doing its thing. Ohh you can take your finger off the backup button when you see this message on the screen.

I would advise you turn the channel over or turn the TV off as this can take 10 + minutes to update. I dont want to be responsable for burning the screen.

Hope this Help
