RCA RTD 207 Power light but no power

The power/standby light comes on when the unit is plugged in but that's it, nothing more. Both fuses are good. Nothing looks burned, no odors. What could be wrong? -Brett

SOURCE: System won't power up

Hi,

Based on your description, we can limit the fault to the power supply board and in particular to possibly 3~4 components:

  • bridge diode;
  • filter capacitor (mains);
  • regulator;
  • filter capacitor (secondary).
blown fuse indicate a short in any of these.

As Jaime867 has suggested, in the absence of a readily available replacement board, component level might be the best alternative at the moment. Having posted the most likely culprits further narrows down your troubleshooting. Could you pls post back the part number of the smaller IC either 4 or 8 pins?

Alternately, pls check for the presence of a VDR, it would look like a coin (often green in color or something else) with 2 pins. They have been known to short out also and cause fuse to blow. One possible indicator is chipped or flaked of one side or a hairline crack on top. If it is chip, there would be a silvery color on the inside.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Unit will not power on, has the standby light on

I took your advice I unpluged the unit then held the power button in then pluged it back into power outlet the unit came on. There is one thing I might add I had to do it twice before the unit came on. Now how long will it work? Who knows

No Power on rt2580


According the parts list on the model unit your fuse is suppose to be F101,FUSE 6A 125V. Is it possible that you have an undersized fuse?

I don't believe that one amp differents would cause your unit to blow like that but, you never know. More than likely you have a bad component in the power supply or power amp.

Then again, with an average replacement cost of $150 online; it not worth getting too deep into the repairs.

Very likely that the internal thermal fuse opened on the main power transformer. With the power cord unplugged, Check the resistance on the ac input of the transformer should read less than 10 ohms. Contact me when you know. I might be able to find one.

Rt2280 no power up, no display, standby light works


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.

Disc Tray Won't Open


I have contacted Venturer Electronics Inc. (which have recently purchased RCA); they are in Toronto, Ontario. They suggested to perform a Manufacturer Reset (as follows); and if it works; system should power up [this means there was a glitch in the software]...(this usually happens when system is plugged into a power bar or surge protector) if not, contact them @ 1-800-721-4007. They honor the manufacturer's (RCA) 1 year warranty... with receipt.

To reset Unit:
Unplug Unit from AC power (other wires can stay connected)
Press the On/Standby button in front of Unit 15 times
Wait 30 minutes
Replug Unit to AC power
Press the On/Standby button to power up unit
Wait couple of minutes for unit to do its thing

**If unit works properly, then ensure not to plug unit into power bar or surge protector, keep plugged into wall.
**If unit will not power up properly, contact them for further instructions.

Hope this is helpful....
My Unit powered up wonderfully and is currenlty working like a charm.
Good luck!

RCA RT2620


if you are a tech from your explanation you could be having problem with your microchip in the standby power supply circuit to verify if it is your microchip bridge your relay if your tv comes on it is your chip if it does not, start checking the regulator in the power supply and associated components.make voltage checks in your horizontal circuit including your flyback transfomer probably there is problem in that section also if you cannot do it take the set to a tech to do the repairs.good luck.
