Question about RCA DRC8060N DVD Recorder
I wasn't having this exact problem, but it sure mimicked it! It *looked* like it was just the static "Hello" message, for a while, but I *could* get it to switch *inputs*. What I *couldn't* get it to do was switch *outputs*. The only thing that would OUTPUT is the HDMI. Well, that and the COAX, but I'm assuming the COAX was just acting as a passthru, cuz it wasn't working when I'd hit Menu or when I tried switching inputs.
SO...I tried that <Open/Close>+<Play> button combo (the <Power>+<Play> didn't work) and that seemed to reset things to where I'm now getting composite outputs, as well as S-Video.

I have found in the RCA DCR8005N and the DRC8060 that the 2200mf 6.3Volt caps fail, will usually swell up on top, these can cause the DVD Recorder to show error messages. I keep a stock of 10Volt caps to replace them on every unit I open up.
The 8005 has two and the 8060 has three caps.

The hello issue is most likely a faulty DVD-RW. These go out on thse models more than usual. Reset is a combination of 2 buttons. Press and hold the play and disk tray open or the power and play ( i forgot the exact sequence but you get my drift, press 2 buttons for about 10 seconds). You can also update the firmware...or atleast could before from RCA.COM but they no longer support this midel. I do have the software update on CD but it won't do any good on Hello issue. If worst comes to worst, open the player up and replace the DVD-RW drive.

BTW - I did open the unit up, and my hunch is that it is a power supply issue. Also, the DVD drive appears to be a standard 5.25" IDE drive made by Philips. It might be worth salvaging for use in a PC if drivers and/or firmware exist for it.
