Question about RCA RT2380 Home Theater System System

1 Answer

Power the power was checked, all wires checked, wall receptacle working... however, when initially plugged in, the receiver power light is on... but when touching any of the buttons on the remote, the receiver turns off automatically... the unit cannot be turned on by remote or by touching the power button directly on the receiver either. Nothing has happened to the receiver to cause this change. It was working, then now all of a sudden it is not. It has been working since we purchased it this fall. Joy

If you're NOT still under warrantee you should at least open the reciever and look for a blown fuse near where the power cable enters the set. If it is blown, it will be obvious and make sure that the set is unplugged before replacing it. If it blows again, or if it is not blown, your problem is probably in the 'X' volt regulator and you will need professional help with the repairs. You can also check the board where the components are mounted and resoled any that look bad. Brief power outages may cause the receiver to turn off on its own. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet. In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer. All can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your reciever serviced.

Power went out door locked




Instructions

<:section abp="1260">

    • 1 Unplug your Whirlpool Duet washer from the wall receptacle.
    • 2 Remove the three screws along the bottom front of the washer. Pull the bottom panel from the washer, opening the front of the washer.
    • 3 Reach your arm up through the opening to locate the door latch assemble inside the body of the washer. Grasp the tear-shaped tab with your fingers. Gently pull down on the tab until you hear a click. Pull on the Duet door to open it.
    • 4 Look inside the latch opening in the body of the washer for foreign material. Remove it from the switch with tweezers or needle-nose pliers. Look for any pieces of broken plastic that could indicate the door lock mechanism is broken and needs replacing.
    • 5 Shut the door on the washer and plug it into the wall receptacle. Confirm that the door remains unlocked. Unplug the washer and release the lock on the washer door as before if it fails to remain unlocked.
    • 6 Unplug the Duet washer from the receptacle. Pull the washer from the wall so you can access the rear of the washer.
    • 7 Remove the three screws from the top back of the Duet washer. Lift the top off the washer. Find the central control unit, or CCU, at the back right of the washing machine.
    • 8 Check that all the wiring harnesses plug securely into the CCU. The wiring harness for the door-lock solenoids is the sixth harness from the left of the CCU. The wiring harness for the door-lock main switches is the only black harness connected to the CCU.
    • 9 Remove the round retainer holding the rubber boot gasket from the Duet washer door opening by inserting a flat-head screwdriver beneath the spring on the retainer. Pull forward on the retainer spring to release it from the boot gasket.
    • 10 Pull the rubber boot gasket away from the opening at the switch location to access the door switch assembly. Check the wiring harness on the switch assembly to make sure it is engaged. Snap the gasket back in place, and replace the retainer on the washer.
    • 11 Plug the Duet washer into the wall receptacle. Select a washing cycle and press start. Listen for the door lock to engage. Turn the washer off and listen for the door lock to disengage, or wait 30 seconds and try to open the washer door.
    • 12 Unplug the washer from the wall receptacle. Pull the wiring harness for the door-lock solenoids from the CCU. Number the sets of wires attached to the wiring harness as 3, 2 and 1, from left to right.
    • 13 Set an electrical multimeter to "Ohm X1K." Insert one probe from the multimeter into opening number 3, along with the wire. Insert the remaining probe into opening number 2, along with the wires. The multimeter should read 60 ohms. Leave the probe in opening number 3, and move the remaining probe to opening number 1. The multimeter should read 60 ohms in this position as well. Should you receive any other reading, replace the wiring harness.
    • 14 Reconnect the wiring harness for the door-lock solenoids into the CCU. Plug the Duet washing machine into the wall receptacle. Select a wash cycle on the duet, then press start. Listen for the door lock to engage and immediately unplug the washer from the wall.
    • 15 Leave the wiring harness for the door-lock main switches plugged into the CCU. Number the wires in the harness 5, 4, 2 and 1, from left to right. The middle opening on the wiring harness is empty, so there isn't a third wire.
    • 16 Set the dial on the electrical multimeter to "Ohms X1K." Insert one probe into the opening next to wire 5, and insert the remaining probe into the opening next to wire 4. The meter should read zero ohms.
    • 17 Insert one probe into the opening next to wire number 2, and insert the remaining probe into the opening next to wire 1. The meter should read zero ohms. Replace the wiring harness should you receive any other reading.

My home has a central vacuum system hook-up but no vacuum installed. My friend upgraded his central system and gave me his Eureka Mega Boss central vacuum system and the accessories, including the pow


The power head requires 120 Volts. Some hoses have a receptacle in the handle for the power head plug, and the hose has a cord at the wall inlet end that plugs into a receptacle. Some hoses have a plug at the wall inlet end that plugs into a 120Volt receptacle built into the inlet. The hose plugs into this receptacle when you push the hose into the inlet. The power for this built-in receptacle is wired with line voltage when the system is installed.

The light on my chest freezer will flicker on and off when I open the door. It will only remain on when the door is in a certain position. How do I fix this? Secondly, the red "on" light on...


Both light flickering probably indicates a problem with the plug or the cord. If it was just the inside light I would suspect the door switch, but both light would indicates an open short in the wires or plug.

Check the plug connection at the wall and see if it is loose. While unplugged check the cord for any nicks or cuts. Plug something else into the same wall receptacle , like a light and see if the power to the receptacle is ok.

If none of the above work then it is time for a qualified repair person.

Can't get my switch to operate the outlet just bought a 5625 switch i have two wires coming out of the wall i want to plug a light in the outlet and have the switch control the power to the outlet.


  • Turn off the power to the receptacle that will be replaced by switching off the circuit breaker in the fuse box. Check that the battery is good in a circuit tester. If not, replace the battery. Place the tester's two ends in one set of the receptacle's slots, then the other set. The light on the tester should not come on. If it does, the correct circuit breaker has not been switched off.

  • 2

    Take off the receptacle's face plate by first removing its screw. Detach the two screw securing the receptacle to the box and pull out the receptacle. Loosen the receptacle's terminal screws and pull away all wires from the back of the receptacle. Take out the receptacle (if working properly, it can be reused). If the ends of the wires are chewed up after removing them from the existing receptacle, cut them off with wire cutters. Strip off 1/2 an inch of insulation from the ends, using wire strippers. Bend them into loops with the pliers.

  • 3

    Bend the copper ends of all wires into a loop, using a pliers. Connect the white wires to the silver terminal and tighten the screw to the wires. Connect the black wires to the gold terminal and tighten the screw to the wires. Connect the bare ground wires to the ground terminal and tighten the screw to the wires.

  • 4

    Push all cables into the back of the box, followed by the receptacle. Attach the receptacle to the box with the two screws. Hold the new faceplate in position and install the screw. Turn on the power at the circuit breaker.

    The red laser pointer underneath the mouse isn't coming on? put new batteries in and the receiver is showing the green light once plugged into my laptop.


    I doubt the problem is the battery. I have this same mouse and it has worked beautifully for two years now EXCEPT for one problem: most of the time, the mouse does not turn on when the receiver is removed from the receptacle on the bottom of the mouse. There is a tiny little switch built into that receptacle, along the side wall of the receptacle not far from the light. I have to wiggle this little switch (gently!) by hand a few times until the light comes on. From that point, the mouse will work fine until the receiver is placed back in the receptacle.

    Oven doesn't work unless a burner is on. controls, display, and oven light don't work unless I turn on a burner, then it powers up.


    Check that one side of the 240 volt line has not failed.

    Check with a voltmeter at the receptacle on the wall.

    OFTEN the wires come loose in the wall receptacle because they are tight fit in the box. DO TURN OFF the breaker before removing the receptacle.

    Moved th stove out from the wall to clean behind and now the stove lights come on but not he burners or the oven. Is there something to reset?


    It is likely the connections in the plug where it plugs into are bad. A person competent in electrical work should pull the receptacle from the wall box and check the connections. Of course the circuit brealer should be turned off AND that the power is dead at the plug VERIFIED before any work is done. If wires have been birned, the receptacle should probably be replaced if there is evidence of heating of the connections.

    Also check the connections of the pigtail from the stove.

    The dishwasher doesnt turn on


    1) Be sure the power is on, the door is latched, and the control is turned on. If absolutely nothing happens--in other words, nothing on the control panel is lit and there are no signs of life-- the appliance may not be receiving power. If the dishwasher's cord is plugged into a receptacle, check to see if it is a GFCI receptacle with a reset button. 20090521162623_gfci-receptacle.gifIf it is, push the reset. If it isn't or if the dishwasher's cord is wired directly to the electrical box, look for any other receptacles in the kitchen that have a reset and and try resetting them. (This is a longshot but it's easy to do and may solve the problem if the dishwasher is on the same circuit.) To test a receptacle for power, you can also just plug a hand-held appliance into it.
    2) If that doesn't work, check the electrical panel for a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse. If you find one, switch the breaker to "Off" and then back to "On" or replace the fuse.
    3) If electrical power is available to the dishwasher but the appliance doesn't run, the problem is likely to be a defective door switch, timer, or selector switch. To solve a door switch problem, you may be able to adjust the door latch’s strike slightly, using a screwdriver (turn off the power to the dishwasher at the electrical panel when working on it).
