Question about RCA RS2020 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Fuse We have an RS2020 CD Micro System. It is a CD player, tape deck, and tuner. The fuse blew, so we bought a new one. We put the new fuse in, then plugged the unit back in. As soon as we plugged it in and turned it on, it sounded right, then we got a bright green light, and the fuse blew again. This happened twice. Incidentally we had disconnected both speakers from the unit beforehand. What might be causing the fuse to blow as soon as we plug it in and turn it on?

If the fuse blew again then there is more than likely a problem with one or more of the boards components. First start by unscrewing the power supply and looking on the underside, you may see some burn marks. If you do then it is likely that the component above the burn marks has blown and needs to be replaced. If you do not see any burn marks then the best place to start is with the diodes on the board. If its still not working, e.g. the fuse blew again then it may be that the problem lies elsewhere on the power supply... Good luck.

How do I connect my CD Player, Tape Deck and Tuner to the SU 300 Technics Amplifier


hi,
For connecting these to your amplifier you need 4 Stereo RCA Cable.
1.Connection for cd:
Take one of the RCA cable connect the one end (red/white) jack to the line out of your cd and connect the other end (red/white) to the CD input of Your amplifier.
2. Connecting the tunner:
Take one of the RCA cable and connect the one end (red/white) jack to the line output of you Tuner and connect the other end (red/white) to the TUNER input of your amplifier.
3. Connectiong the tape deck:
Now you have two RCA cable. Take one of the RCA cable and connect the one end (red/white) jacks to the PLAY out of the Tape deck and connect the other end (red/white) to the TAPE 1 play input of your amplifier.
Now connect the last RCA cable. Connect the one end (red/white) jack to the record input of the TAPE deck And connect the other end (red/white) to the TAPE 1 Record input of your amplifier.(this connection will help you to record to tape from cd or tuner. if you are not interested in recording then you can avoid this connection.)

Now you can select these three items from the frond plannel control switch of the amplifier.
ok

I would have thought that it should go from the amp to the tuner,then the tape deck and finally the CD deck.

I'm suspecting that your tuner is faulty and thats whats causing the system to shut down

I have a Amp,CD player,Tuner,and DVD player. no a tape deck.how can i conect all, with out a tape deck through eqeualizer.


You can connect the EQ on the tape in/output of your amplifier. Tape out (or monitor out) to the input of the EQ and tape in to the output of the EQ.
Listen to the tuner and than switch to the tape input, the tuner input will be still active. But in the tape "mode" your EQ will be active too.

I have a rca rs2640 stereo system. The display, cd player, tape player, radio, and headphone jack all work. But when a cd, tape, or radio is playing, the speakers do not make any sounds. I know it is...


It sounds like maybe you have speaker wires touching somewhere. If they are touching it will blow fuses, especially if you turn the volume up to try to hear anything. DO NOT put bigger fuses in to replace the old ones, you will actually do more damage to your system because a higher volt fuse will allow a higher voltage to "spike" in your stereo and might just start frying internal parts.

2000 escort - tuner does not work but CD and TAPE are fine


most likely is the radio itself- typical ford radio... best bet is look in a junkyard for a new radio- there are no fusible links- there usually is just one 10amp fuse in the inside fusebox. but if the cd& tape players work it is in the stereo itself. hope this helps and good luck

Sherwood 460 equalizer hook up


Connect the EQ to the Sherwood as if it were a tape deck: EQ's outs connect to receiver's tape ins (play) and EQ's ins connect to receiver's tape outs (record).
Then you hook the tape deck up to the tape ins and outs on the EQ: Tape deck outs connect to EQ's tape ins (play) and tape deck ins connect to EQ's tape outs (record).
This will put the EQ in your receiver's tape loop.
The CD player should be connected to the receiver though the CD in's and out's (or if your Sherwood doesn't have a CD in/out, then use AUX or TAPE2).
To hear the EQed signal with all receiver sources (like the CD player) you'll need to engage the 'Tape Monitor' button or switch which will route the tape loop to the speakers.
