We just baught a second hand RV with an RC home theatre system , the problem is the dvd player won't work

If by "won't work" you mean it turns on but does show any activity (track number, etc.) then another DVD player should work, probably similar model if you use a remote with it. If it does not turn on or you can see tracks but hear nothing then it's not necessarily the DVD that is the problem.

About half way through a movie the picture stops and holds then continues on. sometimes it skips scenes when starts again . it seems that the progressive scanning quits (IMHO) and player starts over again...

It sounds like it's reacting to the layer change on the disc. It could be due to dust on the lazer, so would sugest cleaning it.
However if it has always done it, the player could be set up wrong, so may need to go to a proffessional/ service center.

I have a DVD player, VCR player, TV all attached to an RCA RT2250 audio/video receiver. All was just fine until 2 days ago when the DVD player would no longer give sound and icons of the speaker system...

It's possibly only needs soldering of the voltage regulators. they are on the main circuit board heat sink (middle of the receiver and can be accessed by the bottom panel.

Region free for RCA RTD160

Try to find out by looking at the menu of the dvd. play the DVD without a CD Rom in it then press stop and menu at the same time. It will let you select a region for it to play. But sometimes you can only do that with a different DVD players. so0me DVD players are only made to play on what you already have it on.

Unlock parental control on RCA RTD160 home theater

Pasted directly from the user manual. (Had a very hard time finding it, actually...)

"Restore to default settings
When the receiver is on and the disc tray is opened, press
SUBWOOFER for 5 seconds until the screen goes black,
then the initial language selection menu will appear.
All system settings will be restored to default, the parental
password will also be reset."

Wow. How easy is it for kids to just read the manual and figure THAT one out, eh? (Wow. Way to go, RCA! Whoo! *laughs*)

For your convenience, I am posting the user manual on my personal server for your download. I had to jump through a lot of hoops to get to it. It wasn't even on RCA's site, either. I'll make it easy for you.

Enjoy. :)

Drive tray stuck in open position

My unit just stopped working a few weeks ago and I am chucking it so, the unit is available for canabilizing.

I am pretty sure the DVD drive is fine since I was not using that when it died. I was listening to a football game with the TV on and using the audio through the system I think the power supply board died as nothing would work when I pushed a function button.

The remote works fine too so that is available as well as the manual.

I am currently using the existing speakers with a replacement unit, which is under warranty and I am burning in right now at near max volume.

I will be willing to send DVD player as it can be easily be removed from the unit if you want to pay shipping costs.

I bought a Zenith unit on black Friday from Circuit City for $79 with free shipping so I figured it would be as cost effective as trying to repair the RCA unit, plus I have a backup set of speakers.

Now I am looking for another low wattage 5.1 system to use in my retirement home in FL, since I have a spare set of speakers.
