My RCA 5 Disc Changer will not turn on.

My RCA first started off with the screen freezing and not being able to turn it on so I always had to unplug it and then turn it on. Then It just shut off and I can not turn it on anymore.

SOURCE: rca compact stereo rs2657 cd door won't open

Mine was doing the same thing so I unplugged it and took the left side panel off to see what was wrong with it. I did this by removing the 2 screws on the left and the 3 on the back left side also.There was a cd stuck in it. It took some fenangling but I got it out and it works fine now. I know, I know. We as lay people are not supposed to do these things but it was out of warranty and would have cost me as much to have it repaired as to buy a new one. Good luck!

SOURCE: I have an RCA RS-1289

it is saying 'no disc' because the laser eye is either out of alignment ( do to a dropped/bumped unit ) or the reader chip on the board is at fault, or the eye is not getting power, or a combination of all.
take the unit down to your local stereo repair shop and they will most likely replace the drive and laser unit. this should only cost about 65 to 80 dollars depending on where you live and what the shops hourly rate is. make sure you ask them the cost before you have the work done because if it is to expensive to fix - you might just want to buy a new system ((( ??? ))).

That problem is usually due to worn or stretched belts. Try replacing the belts or use a rejuvination liquid.

RCA RS2531 display says Overload and won't function

Start by disconnecting the speakers, turn the volume to minimum, and see if the unit still shuts down. You might have a shorted speaker or wire. If the trouble continues, either the amplifier integrated circuit has gone bad, or some other component failure is activating the shutdown. I can't suggest any specific parts you might check because many things can cause the same symptoms. You'll need to have the unit looked at by a commercial servicer.

My rca 5 disk vertically stacked cd changer is stuck. Won't open. How to fix it?

Try this... unplug the unit and turn it upside down.  Have a small screwdriver ready.  No plug the unit in and try to turn the wheel in the large slot clockwize.  When you see the spring clip try to grab the white plastic stop and move it clockwize.  This should eventually open the door.  It did for me.

CD door will not open

This is normally a problem with the belts or gears that are part of the loading mechanism. sometimes the gears get out of timing.
Whatever is causing the problem, there is no easy fix that is designed for the end user to perform besides unplugging the unit for about half an hour, this resets the micro and it may or may not help.

I work at an authorized RCA repair center and I am sorry to inform you that RCA does not supply parts for any of their audio equipment any longer.

If it is under warranty you can get an exchange from the retailer you purchased it from or send it directly to RCA. You can contact them and/or download user manuals at this website:

If it is not under the warranty it is very unlikely that it can be fixed.

RCA does not seem to care about the customers of theirs unless it is within warranty coverage.

If this information is of any help for you, please leave me a good rating or reply back if you need any more help. I am always willing to offer assistance.

Powering off


I found out that this system only works with some mp3 players in the USB, but you can buy a headphone jack to AUX cable and plug it into the AUX ports and it should work.

Stereo locking up

If you have the reciept return it to the store. There must be a hick-up in the units clock an logic circuits.

Clock frozen

It certainly sounds like a defect and I believe would qualify as a warranty repair. Talk to the store where you purchased it to see what their warranty procedure is before it is out of warranty, which can be as little as 90 days. Good luck.
