Hi Krokodil,

So far I've not been able to find anything for this one. But you could try one hacks that's in the same model family because they may share the same firmware (embedded software). Try the hack for the Teac DV-4000. Look at this page.

Sorry that's all I can suggest.

Yah, you're going to be taking that in for repair. I worked for couple of years at RCA / Sony / Panasonic / ... and 60 more names - service center. When a VHS Cassette loading mechanism doesn't work - it probably needs loading motor or loading gear, something repaired. At the cost of DVD and VHS combos these days I'd call it Not Worth Repair (NWR) out of the starting gate. At least $50 an hour, at least 2 hours ... that's beyond the cost of a new one.

    The dvd recorder drc 8052 only said hello, hello , hello . please help me.

    You are getting this screen display as you switch on and it indicates that the processor starts up but since it does not move forward there are errors in the main board/processor board which give a wrong feedback thereby shutting off the player.
    You need to check the power supply to start with and if all these seems OK , the main board is a suspect.

    What format is used when the VHS is copied to the DVD ? I have copied the VHS tapes onto Verbatim DVD-R discs. They will not play on my computer. Verbatim says I need to know what format they are in...

    the most common in the US is NTFS. another used in other countrys is PAL. the format is seperated into regions, and they are as follows,
    REGION 1 -- USA, Canada
    REGION 2 -- Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Greenland
    REGION 3 -- S.Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Parts of South East Asia
    REGION 4 -- Australia, New Zealand, Latin America (including Mexico)
    REGION 5 -- Eastern Europe, Russia, India, Africa
    REGION 6 -- China
    REGION 7 -- Reserved for Unspecified Special Use
    REGION 8 -- Reserved for Cruise Ships, Airlines, etc...
    REGION 0 or REGION ALL -- Discs are uncoded and can be played Worldwide, however, PAL discs must be played in a PAL-compatible unit and NTSC discs must be played in an NTSC-compatible unit.

    you can use MAGICdvdRIPPER softwareon your computer, it works with NTSC, and PAL formats and vice versa.

    I purchased a RCA DRC-8335 DVD/VCR RECORDER COMBO

    For anyone who has an RCA DRC 8335 with dvd Recorder, here is a suggestion.
    If your tapes have been recorded in SLP Mode, om another player, I can tell you they will NOT play on this thing!!
    So, merely take another VCR, and a blank tape, Place the blank tape into the RCA DRC 8335 VCR side, and then, go to its Set-Up Menu, and go to OUTPUT. On the "ACTION BAR"Change the the RCA's output to "FRONT" and then, play the VCRr you stuck on top of the RCA!!
    When the inage on the "Source tape is shown,
    Record onto the RCA, in SLP Mode, Now, it will play, just fine.
    Hope this helps. Jon (Found BY Accident!!)

    Need to make my dvd player multi region

    This is not a Toshiba problem.

    Most DVD players have region codes. If you play a DVD from your region 5 times, it will permantly set the code.

    Blame the movie and record companies.

    Even most computer DVD drives have region codes.

    It's unlikely the sales person was educated enough in this topic to even know what a region code is.

    Here's something else to consider. If the DVD you want to view is from England, they use PAL not NTSC, so it's unlikely you could view it on your TV anyway.

    Get your son to copy the file from the DVD onto a USB FlashRAM drive, then mail it to you. They don't have region codes. Now you can view it on your computer, and make your own North American region DVD. Also, you could always have him e-mail the video to you, then burn it yourself.


    You do not need a region unlock code for this recorder as it supports both NTSC & PAL
