Question about RCA RS2650 Shelf System

1 Answer

Clock frozen About 3-4 days after I plug in stereo and set clock, the clock freezes and I cannot turn on stereo. I bought this stereo about 2 months ago and this problem started immediately. I have the stereo in a entertainment center and plugged into a power strip. Is this a ventilation problem, or a defect? Its pretty annoying seeing how the only way to fix the problem is to unplug this stereo. Any suggestions?? LC

It certainly sounds like a defect and I believe would qualify as a warranty repair. Talk to the store where you purchased it to see what their warranty procedure is before it is out of warranty, which can be as little as 90 days. Good luck.

      Refer to the section of your owner's manual that addresses the car radio. Each car radio is different in the way you set the clock. If you've installed a car radio other than the one that was manufactured with the car, consult the manual for that radio.

      Know that if this is the first time you're setting the clock or are setting the clock after installing a new battery in your car, you have to set the hour and the minute of time. Often, you set the clock with either the radio station up or down arrows. On some car stereos, you use the CD track selector buttons for setting the clock.

    • 3

      Using either the CD or radio selector buttons, set the hour first. Push the button labeled "Set" or "Clock" and then set the minute with the same procedure. When setting the minute, some manufacturers allow you to move through in increments of five by pressing and holding the button. If the time of day were 2:49 p.m., for example, you would push the button 13 times, including nine times to display :45, then four additional times incremented by one to display :49. Push the "Set" button or the "Clock" button.

      Determine whether your car stereo is equipped to automatically change when Daylight Saving Time begins and ends. If it hasn't changed at 2 a.m. of the time-changing date, you know it isn't equipped for this. In that case, set the hour either forward or backward and the appropriate time of the year.

      If you can't figure out how to set the clock on your car stereo, wait until noon on any given day, disconnect your car battery and reconnect it.

I am not sure on how to wire the freeze protection wires to the time clock. i know they must go to the load side of the clock for the main pump but will this reverse the power back into controls and short...

Here's a 240V diagram with clock timer and freeze control:
Add a comment if explanation does not fit your exact timer:

See image full size:

Here's how freeze control works:
Freeze control is like regular timer, except it turns ON by thermostat instead of time-clock
Freeze control turns ON pump whenever thermostat kicks on.
Both clock-timer and freeze-control are wired to pump in 'parallel' so to speak.
Think of it as having two controls wired to same pump...
Both controls can turn pump ON-OFF.
If one turns ON, and other is OFF ... then pump is ON.
If both are ON, then pump is ON ... and electricity just flows around on extra wires.
If both are OFF, then pump is OFF.

Say it's below freezing all day.
Freeze control circuit is ON all day ... pump is ON all day
Clock timer turns ON > but circuit is already ON, so timer just opens more wires for electricity to flow around on.
When clock timer turns OFF > freeze circuit is still ON because it's below freezing ... pump is still ON.

240V wiring:
Power leads coming from circuit breaker go to terminals 1&3 on clock-timer
Same power leads connect to freeze-control-black and freeze-control-red.
Or connect freeze-control-black and freeze-control-red to terminals 1&3
This action puts power to clock and power to thermostat

Pump wires connect to terminals 2&4
Same pump wires also connect to freeze-control-blue and freeze-control-yellow.
Or connect freeze-control-blue and freeze-control-yellow to terminals 2&4
This action connects pump to both freeze-control and timer.
When either clock-timer or freeze-control turn ON, then pump turns ON.

Set clock on sd-kv550-su

Hi there,

There are two ways to set the clock on your machine, firstly by using the 'auto clock' feature and also a manual setup, if the auto setup doesn't work then you will need to setup your machine manually. the 'auto clock' feature will atempt set itself up and will take approx 4 mins for the machine to adjust itself. There is also a daylight saving setting which you can either have set to on or off. The auto and manual steps that I have added below have been taken from the user manual for your your Toshiba SD-V295 pages 24 - 26.

Hope this helps,


Auto Clock Adjustment
• Turn ON the TV and select the corresponding video input.
• Press VCR DVD selector to select the VCR mode.
(The VCR mode indicator will light.)
1. Connect the Antenna or Cable system.
If you use a cable box, turn it on.
2. Plug the AC power cord to the AC outlet.
3. Make sure the DVD/VCR is turned off.
If you press POWER, the Auto Clock set is not programmed.
4. Wait at least three minutes and press POWER.
5. Press CALL DISPLAY to check the clock setting on the on screen display.
6. If the clock is not set, check the antenna
condition. The AUTO CLOCK may not function properly if the reception condition
is not good.

Manual clock setting

2. Press SET + or – to select “SYSTEM SETUP”, then press ENTER.
