I also have the 'Hello' problem. Had a disc stuck, but you can remove the case screws and get that out. Looks like this DVR is faulty for everyone. I don't recommend it. I'm looking for a different one.

That is right, you need to replace the DVD drive with a PC spare.

I just fixed mine I replaced the dvd/rw drive I guess the regular one is bad and the reason it will not work is that the IDE line is not working due to the drive not working so it just sits there..

Press the up or down Channel button. It will change the output mode to the RF which is probably the way you have it connected.

Constant hello is most likely the DVD drive. if you have a spare, then I would recommend replacing it (it is a computer drive so any will work). If you do not have a spare, then you can go to Ebay or Ecrater and purchase a used DVD drive and pop it in. It is failry easy to do.

SOURCE: RCA DRC8030N Problem

hey maybe you can try this first before the other solution posted i just read..

Open it up and unjack the drive unit from the maid board. it hould be connected via a cable.. turn the unit on and it should display an error message or error code.. Once this is done unplug the unit and reconnect the cable this should reset the unit and it should work..

I have never tried anoter drive before in any unit cause i could never get it to work, i always purchased the exact replacement parts.. In your case i believe its cause the main controller is damaged or frozen.. If you got a battery n the board remove it wiat a few minutes and replace it this should reset the unit..

Larger Hard Drive in DRC8030N

Yes you can replace the hard drive with a larger one. I have a 500 gig hard drive in mine. You can do the same thing with the DVD drive.

Any more problems, contact me at [email protected]

the DVD Drive is bad. Replace it with the same (which I haven't been able to find anywhere on the internet) or one off the shelf (a little jerry-rigging is involved) and it will work. Everything else should be fine. This exact same thing happened to me.

RCA DRC8030N No output

Connect the unit as you normally would using the composite cables. Once you turn the unit on and the RCA logo flashes and then the video *poof*, dissappears, press the Video Out button on the remote control so that the PS OFF (progressive output for S-Video) is shown on the LCD, this should get the video back to normal.

Drc8030n Motherboard

Thank you so much for sending me those parts, and an extra thanks for the extras. Which happens to be what I needed to fix my problem. You won't believe it... I got your well-packaged parts today. I soon replaced the Motherboard, no change, still the same HELLO... I was so deceived... Then, I decided to replace the Power Supply, just in case... IT WORKED!... (thanks for sending me a free power supply)... Looking at my power supply, I can see that on the printed circuit under those 3 diodes, near the transformer, is an area that seems to have overheated. I will test it and give you the results eventually, as well as the results and solution if I can fix the DVD burner. I'll use the extra fan you so generously gave me to cool the power supply, seems like it won't hurt. Though I have to place it right, or it'll make the problem worse... Seems like anything wrong with this DVR and all it'll do is display HELLO... I've heard of a bad DVD Burner, a bad Motherboard and now a bad Power Supply that causes the HELLO... Thank you so very much GSAN, you did it... I recommend you to everyone out there for your fairness, kindness and devotion. We should call you Mr. FixYa!...

Rca drc8030n hello

9 out of 10 the Hello problem lies in the DVD-RW board (I replace this board to correct the problem) and that 1 out of 10 time the problem lies in the main board that the IDEs connect to. I have replaced this board as well to correct such problem. I understand that these spare parts are impossible to come by. If you can make sure that the DVD-RW is fine by hooking it up to your PC and reading from it, then I can send you an RCA DRC8030N with the Hello issue that originates in the DVD-RW (so you can swap out the main board that connects the IDEs) and still have extra parts for later possible problems. If interested, you can contact me via triple w.suncitybargains.ecrater.com Thanks.

RCA DRC8030N Problem

This is due to the DVD-RW drive that is in the unit. This is the first to fail and RCA seems to have gone with the lowest bidder on this model. The DVD-RW drive will need to be replaced. If you used the DVR to watch and burn DVDs then you will need to replace it with any computer DVD-RW but you may need to re-drill some holes to have the replacement drive fit exactly aligned with the DVD door. If you only want to use this DVR for the internal hard drive recording and TV viewing, then any CD or DVD computer drive will do, just simply connect the replacement drive and leave it in the case (you wont have access to the DVD or CD drive under this option). If you do replace the drive, make sure you match up the jumper on the back so that it will be in the same position as in the original DVD drive ( the Master setting). I hope I did not scare you with all this information, but unfortunately, the dreaded HELLO issue with the DRC8030N has no easy fix.

Says hello

This is the power on procedure. Once it goes out, then press the poer button. If all you get is a blue screen, then turn off the progressive scan by pressing the small round button on the remote that is labeled "video out"
