Powering up/DVD loader opening problem RCA RTD255

I bought this a couple years ago, no problems at all and the surround was awesome. Recently, it wouldn't power up, then would with no problem. I noticed it powered up more often when not plugged into a surge protector. Now the unit powers up, but the door and tray loader for the dvd changer won't open. There's no DVDs in there, and the door isn't stuck (I was able to open the door without the power to make sure). What could this be?

Re: Powering up/DVD loader opening problem RCA RTD255

Hi what you have is a malfunction, and just because the design. look I have a RTD255, I had the same prob that you, what did I do? I desarmed, and underneath the trays, you will find a big pinion, it is the one who moves the tray out and in, it has a screw in the midle a golden one. I removed, then I put the pinion out and I found a wheel moved by an ruber band, thatmoves another pinion this is the pproblem the real one. what I did was to put an screw in order to not let it move up and down. but you must be carefull because no every screw can be located in the midle hole, the idea is to remove a little bit of the black plastic that is in the center an put an screw then yu can assemble your device again and enjoy!! if you need better explications may be an diagram or something like that do not doubt in contact me, because describe the issu is very hard you might not understand what i just wrote. tks any ways

What are you playing in it? If you are playing a cd, the system will default to playing the sound only in stereo. You can manually select a surround mode if this is the case.

The audio keeps going in and out and cuts off. Also I have other devices going into aux in but it doesn't show 5.1 surround it only shows the front L, Front R, and CT speakers in stereo. I want everything...

If you are playing a source that is Stereo such as FM Radio or a CD the sound will not use all 5.1 speakers unless you enable the correct Surround Mode. On the remote there is a button on the lower right of the remote that says SURROUND. You can toggle through the various surround modes with this button the mode you want is Dolby Pro Logic The Pro Logic mode uses the built-in circuit to steer the Left, Center, Right and Mono Surround channel audio signals and uses all five speakers to play both stereo and Dolby Pro Logic program source, such as TV and VCR. You can use this mode with any stereo program source (such as VCR/TV) to enjoy multi-channel sound experience.

High-pitched sound when using surround sound

THANK YOU Guest (4/10/08)!!!
That was exactly what I needed! We have had our system for 4.5 years and suddenly, the FM feedback on everything, but DVD and Radio! Your fix helped. Once I set all my presets (at least the current one) to a clear station, the feedback stopped. Hallelujah!! We can enjoy this piece of junk once again! ;)

Fornt speakers does not have any sound.

remove the front speakers cables from the rear-remove surround speaker cables from the rear and put them in the place of front speaker-run a music if you get good sound the problem in your front speakers(speaker or its cable)-if you got nothing you will have a problem in your system itself and need to fix in service center.
