Question about RCA RT2250 System

1 Answer

Audio and Video cutout

For the past 8 months or so, my RT2250 will play (DVD, CD, Cable) but after a few minutes, the audio and video cutout alltogether. I discovered the old hitting the side of entertainment center technique, and the audio and video would come back on for a few minutes, but then cuts out again. I have done troubleshooting for everything (rca cables, tv, etc.) and its defintely the receiver. Over time, the audio and video stays on less and less, and i have to whack the entertainment center harder and harder to get it to come back on. What does this sound like?

Re: Audio and Video cutout

It sounds like you gonna break the unit eventually:) now seriously, when a problem can be handled by activating physical force, it is probobly related to loose conections or wiring. if you wanna fix it yourself, take it apart and start loking for those kind of things.

Hi. I have Philips HTS3115 connected to the TV Philips 37PFL9603D/10 via HDMI cable. Everything works fine with DVD and CD player. Just with the option "TV" there is no sound from TV in the...


"In the past I have got the old flat TV connected with SCART"... what about the present? HOW is the "TV" audio connected to it?

My advice would be to remove the TV as a sound source and get the TV-audio from the audio outputs of wherever it really originates. In most cases that is a Cable Box which can be treated like a high-end audio device for this discussion.

Ever wonder why Cable Boxes have separate audio and video outputs and TV's have multiple inputs? So you can send the BEST version of audio and video directly to the BEST electronics that NEEDS it and NOT to or through anything that adds nothing to the quality. Heck, many TV's are monitors without audio at all. THAT is how I would treat any TV for serious high end listening. Send the digital Cable Audio to the soud system and the 'regular' RCA audio to the TV for low-fi TV-watching like news and Oprah.

Why? no sound from the speskers at all.


There are a few things that could cause no sound and although some are obvious I'll got through them all..

1) Sound is on Minimum

2) Sound is Muted

3) No Power to Subwoofer

4) Speakers connected Incorrectly or Faulty

5) No AUDIO IN connections to TV-IN or AUX-IN

6) Incorrect Input Source is Selected (See Below)


Connecting audio from TV

When connecting the audio output from your TV to this Home Theater Audio System, you will have the sound of the

TV output on all the speakers. It will enable you to enjoy the multi-channel surround sound capabilities.


Use an audio cable (red/white - not supplied) to connect the TV IN jacks on this DVD system to the AUDIO OUT

jacks on the TV. To listen to the sound, press TV on the remote control as the sound source that you want to play.


Connecting audio from an audio/video device

This DVD system provides analog and digital audio connection. You can connect the audio output from an

audio/video device (e.g. VCR, Cable/Satellite Box) to this Home Theater Audio System in order to enjoy the

multi-channel surround sound capabilities.

Use an audio cable (red/white - not supplied) to connect the AUX IN jacks on this DVD system to the AUDIO OUT

jacks on the connected device. To listen to the sound, press AUX/DI to select "AUX" as the sound source that

you want to play.

Or

Use a coaxial cable (not supplied) to connect the DIGITAL IN jack on this DVD system to the DIGITAL OUT jack on

the connected device. To listen to the sound, press AUX/DI to select "DI" as the sound source that you want to play.


Please leave feedback

Only VCR2 sound working, no video


if you want you can bypass the video instead of plugging it on your system feed it directly to your tv., you only need the white and red cables for your audio to work, red for right channel and white for left channel the yellow one is for video, you can directly plug it on your tv

I need a diagram of how to hook up my jvc 5.1 surround sound to my tv, dvd and cable box


I my self don't have that exact unit, but most are similar, and i have looked up the specifications which are:

Inputs:
1 x S-video input
1 x Composite Video Inputs
1 x Digital Audio (TOSLINK) Input
1 x Stereo Audio Input

Outputs:


document.write(neg_specification_newline('1 x S-Video Output
1 x HDMI Output')1 x S-Video Output
1 x HDMI Output
INPUTS (coming from devices to the system):
1) The unit already comes with a DVD player, correct? If so you don't need to connect it. If you do, connect your DVD play via an s-video input, since a normal DVD player doesn't need a higher quality/resolution input.

2) Connect your cable box to the home theater system via a composite cable (the one with Red green blue), if it has composite outputs ofcourse. If not, do it visa versa with the DVD, if your dvd has composite. So make the dvd via composite and cable box via s-video.

3) Audio from the dvd, this would be via Digital Audio (TOSLINK) Input or stereo audio input. the digial audio will give you true 5.1 surround sound, and the stereo will only give you left and right channels, like you would hear from anything else (like a normal cd, radio, etc).

4) audio from cable box, would be again depending what you want. If you cable provider gives you alot of programming that has 5.1 surround sound (mostly HD channels), you would be better off with the digital audio. But if you watch more via your DVD, then connect the cable box via the stereo input. Again, this is to your preference, and which one you want true 5.1 surround sound from. The system should be able to 'emulate' 5.1 surround sound via the stereo cable too, but if your watching a movie, it can't really tell if a sound is supposed to come from the left rear or the left front.

Output:
5)connect to tv via HDMI if available, or S-video.

HDMI is much higher resolution (HD quality) S-video is normal cable programing or 'dvd quality'.

And the Tv would be left on mute or volume=0 since no audio is connected to the tv! All the audio should now come from your system.

Sorry if this was too vauge, but I don't have the same system and dont know exactly what/where all the connections are. If you have any other questions let me know.

How do I get my tv to play through the surround sound


If you have direct cable into the television, you will need to use an audio output if available on the back of your set into your HT system.

If you are using cable w/ a cable box you have two options. You can still connect everything directly into the TV then reroute the audio to the HT system... or, you could hook only video to the TV and audio from the cable box to the HT system. Really up to you.

CONNECTING THE PANASONIC SC HT680 TO A SONY TRINITRON COLOR TV AND CABLE BOX


audio/video OUT from the cable box to the aux IN on the panasonic right? So you can see the output from the cable box but only sound from dvd. Are you changing the input on the tv when you go from watching the cable box to watching the DVD? the panasonic handles audio, but the video from each goes to two different inputs on the sony. I hope none of this sounds condescending.

Can't play AUX inputs through Panasonic surround sound


Check the TV audio output setting. There may be 3 settings for audio output. Fixed/variable/none. Try all of the settings, and see if you get your audio back. If not, try a different cable between the TV and DVD player. I suspect this is a red/white RCA audio cable.
