Question about RCA RT2360 System

1 Answer

Bad level of sound.

I recently hook this system up for my girlfriend. Everything was going with out a problem, until I was pushing the receiver into its slot in the entertainment center. All of a sudden the sound on a few of the speakers went dead. I figured that I had just unhooked a few of the wires, so I pulled it back out to inspect. Everything was as I had left it. I went ahead and unhooked all the speakers one at a time and made sure that they were still working. All the speakers were still working, but now the level of sound that I was getting in the high 30s was only happening at near the max for the volume. Not sure if maybe I blew a fuse or something, but now the receiver sounds like crap. Any ideas?

Re: Bad level of sound.

Try hooking up other speakers to receiver, and other receiver to speakers, in order to determine which is the problem causer. open up receiver and check the contacts of the speaker swiches. also check the speaker relays, many times problem lyes there.

RT2770 cuts out above a volume setting of 30.


Bass and other settings may be set too high and are overdriving the unit.

If all else fails try the old unplug it for a while and then plug back to see if that helps.

What if anything else is hooked up at the same time to this system?

I Just recently bought this have it hooked up to my Computer through a Digital audio Coaxial cord . The problem is this 600 - Watt system is emitting less power than the 300 watt one it replaced that was...


Audio power is relevant only between the amp and the speakers. Check the volume setting of the source and any audio settings in the PC.

SPDIF is not Red and White. If anything it is a single coaxial RCA connector.

Wattage specs for comparison are pure fiction at this level. 10% distortion fudges the number upward.

Defeat any bass enhancement in the source until you figure out the level issue.

Sounds is lower than it should be, possible short.


Having read the problem report two or three times, it appears that you're running ~three~ cables from your cable receiver to the home theater system - orange, and red&white.
Often, when you can hear a low-level signal on an input, it's due to 'leakage' from another input, and it's my hunch that the cable receiver is sending audio through the red and white (analogue) connections, which you've plugged to the main sat/cable receiver inputs.
To confirm this, I'd be interested to know if, when you unplug the red and white connectors from the back of the Onkyo, the quiet signal completely disappears.
If that's the case, I would suggest either going into the cable receiver's cofiguration to see if 'digital audio out' is set (if such is possible) or switching the input to 'cable/satellite'...
Hope this brings you closer to the root of the problem!

No sound with ps3, connected to a 7.1 av receiver & projection tv


Hi...the HT-R800 Home Theater system has the HT-R550 receiver which could only carry Video via HDMI. you would need to connect a separate audio cale(Optical Audio Cable) to be able to get audio out of the PS3 to the receiver. Once you have hooked up an Optical Audio Cable you would need to go in the PS3 setup and putin Bitstream and Optical in the Audio Setup menu.

RCA 2280 Optical Input w/PS3


The only optical option is through the satalite function. After I hooked up my xbox 360 with optical audio, I pushed the SAT button on the front of the RCA receiver then turned the multi jog wheel until it read "optical" out came surround sound. I hope this helps you.

No output, speakers dead. my system worked until I reached for the remote. I touched a button that lost all output.It is the same dvd, or radio, the radio shows tuned, I have tried everything I know no go....


If your receiver has A and B channel speaker selectors you may want to toggle through the two and see if the sound comes back. That could easily have been pressed from the remote. If not try hooking up only one speaker at a time. If there is a short, or blown speaker the amp will usually shut its audio off so it doesn't damage anything internal. Hope this is helpful.

Hooking up the RT 2600


connect all the devices into the receiver inputs then there should be 1 set of outputs to the tv. This is to play everything using surround sound as all the video and audio is going through your recevier... if you want to do HD and have surround sound you will need a new receiver as this one has no hdmi inputs or outputs.

Hooking up a sony playstation 3 with digital optical cable


Here's one solution, if you have an audio output from your tv, you can go from the audio output on your tv to the audio input on your receiver that way anything that is playing on your tv for example, playstation 3, dvd player etc. Anything playing on your tv will have audio on your onkyo home theater system. The other thing I would try if you want to hook ps3 directly to receiver is go to your connection settings on your ps3 menu and change your connection method to digital optical cable.

The problem i had was when i would play my tv. I had it hooked from my dish to the sony then the tv. When i played a dvd,cd or the tuner it didn't make that noise.
