Question about RCA DRC8030N
The display just says hello and will not do any thing
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.

Do you mean the disk drive or the hard drive?

I have the same problem. Keeps displaying Hello. Will try to replace the DVR recordable drive. Any specific model?

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.

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..
