Might be the relay on the power board that stands up just behind the big transformer. I has a complete no power also, I shorted out the relay legs on the black one, it started to work again. I will probably replace it, since the problem started by the system shutting off randomly.

LG 32LH20 colors distorted


The only thing I could think of is a tcon board, if that isn't what it's called by that tv, it's also called something like a LCD digital board to timing board. Usually it's right behind the display inside.

Sound (Audio) Drops Out


This unit is shutting down the outputs probably due to heat. There are thermal detection transistors inside that will shut off the output amp section if it gets too hot. There can be a number of reasons for this. Check the speaker wires to be sure that they are not frayed at all and that none of the strands are touching. Other than that there may be defective parts inside that are sensitive to heat.

I Have am RCA RT2280 that has no power accept for the led on the power button, Any Ideas?


My RCA 2280 receiver went out on me one day. I thought I'd have to take it to the shop. But before I do that I'll check the fuse because I took it to the shop once before and the repair man said that it was the fuse, he replace it with a new one. So I thought that I would take a look inside first. I took the cover off and looked around and notice that the fuse looked loose. It was loose. I just push it all the way in, replace the cover, plugged it back up and it worked.
As far as the on and off problem goes (which happened to me too) the speaker wire coming from one of the speakers to the back of the receiver were crossed, over loading the system causing it to over heat resulting in it shutting off. I found that the wire was going from red to the gray instead of red to red and gray to gray. Once I rearranged the speaker wires I had no more problems and that was years ago. I haven't had anymore trouble sense. I've had the receiver maybe 12 years now.
Except for today with the Dish Network 20.0 IR 155681 remote control for the 722k HD/DVR. I tried everything in their book but I can't get it to control the RCA 2280 surround sound volume. Anybody gotta clue? I would surely appreciate it. Good Luck.

Red light is on in the back of my t300 tower speakers


That is the standby mode but if its not kicking out of standby mode it could be a fuse issue

The T300 uses a 2.5A fuse.

To replace the fuse:

1. Unplug the AC cord from the AC power source,

then remove the AC power cord from the speaker's

power connector.

2. Remove the fuse cap with a small, flat blade screwdriver

(see diagram 2).

3. Remove the fuse from the fuse cap

(see diagram 3).

4. Replace the fuse inside fuse cap with another metric

5X20mm size fuse

5. Replace the fuse inside the cap, replace the fuse

and cap in the power connector (see diagram 5).

6. Connect the AC power cord to the speaker and

raise it upright.
7. Connect the power cord to an AC power outlet

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.

Power short/ bad fuse?


I had the very same problem. The dreaded blinking power light. I also dabble in electronics. I found that all that was wrong with mine was one bad cap. There are two 1000uF(microfarrid) 16V(volt) capacitors in the mid section of the power board, right next to each other. One was bulging on the top. They have an "X" on top. I replaced it with a 1000uF 35V capacitor from Radioshack. They did not have a 16 volt. (Never go down to a lower voltage) The capacitor I got was larger than the old one but I gently moved over the parts around it and got in there. After replacing this one capacitor, which I got for $1.72 tax and all, I plugged it up and no more problems! It works great! I hope this helps someone else.
