Hi there, I have a RCA DRC8052N and I did get the stuck on ''Hello'' message and was able to reset by pressing the power button for 10 Secs. I was just wondering which Capacitors are responsible for this? All the Capacitors look good on the power board, no bulges. I saw the 1000uf ones and the smaller 680uf ones and I was thinking if I should just replace all with a higher voltage just to be safe and prevent power up glitches. Also I have the RCA DRC8060 and it never gave me any power ups until recently. It actually just didn't power on. I was able to reset it, and it seems to be working well now. But just to be safe I would also like to put in a higher voltage Capacitor. I think the Capacitor is 2200uf, but I don't know which one for sure. Do you know which Capacitor is the one to replace?
They can be subtituted by 1000uF 25V capacitors ( they are 680uF 16V).
On your RCA DRC8060, replace the 3 2200uf capacitors with 10v items. Make sure you use 105 degree parts, as most of these problems relate to heat stress. Don't forget to unplug before diving in! If I've helped, please provide feedback so I can help others. Regards Zahc

The DRC8052N / DRC8052NB / DRC8052NC DVD recorder (sorry cab209, not a PC) has had a LOT of problems. So many that RCA doesn't even list it on their site! There was a firmware upgrade that supposedly fixed this, but I'm having trouble finding it on the web.
As to how to remove DVD:
1) Try unplugging the machine and leaving it unplugged for 10 to 15 minutes. then (without plugging it back in) press the power button repeatedly. (I know it sounds goofy but it came from customer support. Theory: to drain all power) Plug it back in and try to eject.
2) Another owner suggested holding down the HDMI button on the remote. The "hello" mesage is an initialization/power-on routine, so my guess would be it was powered off with the disc in it?
3) Unplug it. Remove the cover (two silver screws on each side and three black screws on the back). Slide the cover off (to the rear). Take the four small screws out of the top of the drive (marked LOADER on mine. Lift out the DVD. Reassemble.
While you have it apart..... You might also look at the circuit board next to the drive in the center of the unit. It has a bunch of capacitors (black or blue, cylindrical, w/ X or Y stamped in the end). If any of these are no longer flat on the X or Y end or have yellow 'goo' on or around them, they have failed and are the source of your problem. They can be replaced, but it may be more cost effective to replace the entire unit.
I hope it will work for you,please follow the steps:
1) Give the router power,then with a pen press the reset button for 10 secs,after that unplug the power cable from the router for 10 secs and wait
2) After 10 secs plug the power cable back,and press the reset button for another 10 secs,after that unplug the power cable again for 10 secs. and wait.
3) After 10secs plug the power cable back and press the reset button for 10 secs, after that unplug the power cable again for 10 secs and wait.
It will bring the router back to default settings.
now if your ethernet ports have limited connectivity,please follow the steps:
If you have windows XP try this
1) connect the computer with a wire to the router
2) click start menu>contrlo panel>to your left you will see switch to classic view,click that
3) Double click and open the icon named network connection
4) right click the icon named local area network connection,click properties
5) Now click the tab named "configure" under the general tab
6) Click the tab named "Advanced"
7) Under that tab you will see something named "Property"
8) Inside that white box you will see either "Speed/Duplex" or "Link Speed/Duplex", select that
9) To your right just beside property you will see 10 mbps half duplex,select that and click OK
10)Click Ok if you find any or click Close,whicever is there.
Restart the computer and enjoy working without any limited connectivity.
Hi Friend Please follow the steps to reset the router in a different way

After trying these steps if you see the power light still blinking then you need to replace the router. Please call the customer care of linksys 1800 546 5797,they will let you know how to replace the router
>try to do hardware reset >while printer is on unplug power cord at the back of it, press and hold # and 6 buttons on your printer, while holding the buttons plug back power cord, printer should initialise you can release the buttons after 10 secs or until you see semi full reset on the display, if the printer will not automatically turn back on press the power button, if it ask for you to set the region and laguage again then you have done the reset successfully >this hardware reset should clear the error otherwise better contact hp
Hi. Yeah, RCA soutions are worthless. What happens is that the hard disk loses recording time while in use. Like a hard disk losing clusters on a computer and making them unusable. To get that recording time back, you will need to reset the unit. To do this, go to the main menu, press and hold the play and open buttons on the front pannel for about 7 seconds. This will reformat your hard disk. Keep in mind that reformating will erase all data. I have looked up and down for some type of firmware/software update and RCA support told me to disconnect the unit..press the power button 10 times and connect again!!???!?!? How silly. Hope this helps :)
Just called again and wanted to do a soft reset by pressing the power button and the stop button together. then try to open it, if not then turn the unit off and leave it off for 30 min then plug it back in and try opening it then. if still doesn't work then send it back and pay the $169 heheheheh crazy!
