My stereo keeps turning off when I listen to a station 101.5 in New Jersey


The only thing that can be is that you have set a timer "sleep" function for that station. I have looked at the manual and it states you can programme a sleep setting for a radio station.
The instructions are on page 12. But I have extracted them below:

1 Press the ON/STAND-BY button to turn the power on.

2 Press and hold the CLOCK/TIMER button.

3 Within 10 seconds, press the or button

to select "ONCE" or "DAILY", and press the MEMORY

button. Set the clock to the correct time if "ONCE" or

"DAILY" does not appear.

4 Within 10 seconds, press the or button to select

"ONCE SET" or "DAILY SET", and press the MEMORY

button.

5 To adjust the hour, press the or button and then

press the MEMORY button.

6 To adjust the minutes, press the or button and

then press the MEMORY button.

7 Set the time to fi nish as in steps 5 and 6 above.

8 To select the timer playback source (CD, TUNER, USB,

iPhone/iPod, TAPE or AUDIO IN), press the or

button. Press the MEMORY button.

When you select the tuner, select a station by pressing

the or button, and then press the MEMORY

button. If a station has not been programmed, "NO

PRESET" will be displayed and timer setting will be

canceled.

9 Adjust the volume using the VOLUME control, and then

press the MEMORY button. Do not turn the volume up

too high.

10 Press the ON/STAND-BY button to enter the power

stand-by mode. The "TIMER" indicator lights up and

the unit is ready for timer playback.


11 When the preset time is reached, playback will start.





The volume will increase gradually until it reaches the

preset volume. The "?" or "DAILY" indicator will blink

during timer playback.

12 When the timer end time is reached, the system will

enter the power stand-by mode automatically.

Once timer:

The timer will be canceled.

Daily timer:

The timer operates at the same time every day. It

will continue until the daily timer setting is canceled.
Cancel the daily timer when it is not in use.

I have a new ESTR 200 that has been in a closet for a couple of years. Very little seems to function well. The presets will not hold if I turn the system off or if I turn to another function. Record...


I assume we're talking about the Element ESTR200...

A turntable will not work with this receiver unless the TT is already preamplified. No Phono Preamp in this unit.

Presets:

From the manual...

Store a station
1. Press the FM/AM button on the front panel (or
the AM/FM button on the remote).
2. Select the station you want to store in memory
by the methods described above.
3. Press the MEMORY button on the remote
While "MEMORY" is glittering, press number
buttons on the remote for the station.

If the Memory indicator on the display turns off before you preset the station selection, Press Memory again.

Manual preset
1. Select the band wave by pressing FM/AM
repeat.
2. Turn to a radio station(see "Manual tuning" on
page 8 in details).
3. Select a group (A- D) of preset stations. This
group will be displayed on the front panel.
For example: "A".
4. Press MEMORY on the remote control.
"MEMORY"will appear on the display.
5. While the word "MEM" appears, input your desired preset number (1-8 ) by using the numeric keys on the remote control to store the radio station. For example this number is "1", the station is stored as "A1".
NOTE:
A new setting can cover the former one.
This memory is kept before next reset.

Retrieving preset stations
1. Press FM/AM button on the front panel or the
remote control to select tuner mode.

2. Press A/B/C/D button on the front panel or the
remote control to select the group of preset stations that you require.
3. Press the numeric keys on the remote control to select the number of preset station that you require. Station selected is displayed on the front panel.
4. By the same way, you can select other stored
stations.

using the remote.
Be sure "+" and "-" marks of each battery match the symbol on the inside of the remote battery compartment.

-The remote is not pointed at the remote control sensor on the main unit or there is an obstacle between the remote and the main unit.
-The remote control is too far away from the main
unit, move closer.

Presets stopped working


I have repaired a few of these receivers in the past few years and have found several with microprocessor issues and some with a lot of heat stressed solder connections on the main amplifiers board around the voltage regulators.

The problem you are having is similar to problems the others I have repaired were having.

There is nothing you can, as an end user, do beyond a hard reset of the microprocessor by unplugging the unit from the wall and wait about an hour or 2 before you plug it back in.

By resetting the microprocessor you can at least see if the problem is a minor one or not. most likely it is an electronic problem that will take some good troubleshooting skills.

The bigger problem you face with this particular unit is that RCA no longer supplies parts for the audio equipment they sell.

Once the supply of what they have in stock is gone, thats it, no more parts at all for RCA audio. That supply has not been replenished in around a year.

All of the RCA audio equipment sold now is exchange only if it is under warranty.

I know this because I work at an authorized RCA repair center and I am the audio tech. I have not repaired an RCA audio unit under warranty in about a year because of that.

I have fixed 3 or 4 of the same unit you have, but not under warranty.

If you or somebody you know has very good soldering skills you can try reflowing the solder connections on the main board and even reflowing the microprocessor. It could solve your problem, but not advisable unless you are very good with a soldering iron and have done this sort of thing before.

I am sorry for this rather bad news, but it is true. I have been repairing audio equipment for over 17 years and am very familiar with RCA products.

If I can be of any further help please let me know.
