Question about RCA RT2760 System

1 Answer

Volume increases on its own intermittently

While watching tv the other night, the receiver began increasing the volume on its own. I lowered it w/the remote. It did it again after several minutes, and this time I could not fight it with my remote. I just turned it off. Last night I tried it again. I got 30 minutes through my show before it happened again. The volume level starting increasing on its own!

    Yes, the display changed, from TV to numbers (for volume), and I watched the numbers increase before my eyes (freaked me out too).

    I was alone. No other signal would be able to hit the receiver.

    You mentioned remote batteries....interestingly enough, the remote died soon after this occurred! I thought it was a coincidence, but maybe not?

    My volume goes up on it's own as soon as I turn on tv. Remote no longer works either for channel or anything. Took out batteries on remote, tv still does the same thing. The volume bar on tv increases with the volume, I tried to manually turn it down but it goes right back up and I can't maually change channel when this happens either until volume has increased all the way.

When the volume increased did the display show it doing so as if someone was turning the knob?  I mean did the volume go from like level 15 to 30 or did the unit's level stay constant while the audio volume increased?
Were you alone or sharing the room with a jokester who has a universal remote?
Does this problem occur when the batteries are removed from your remote?
Are you sure the 'volume up' button on the unit itself is disengaging properly after being pressed?

Sound distribution varies according to speaker configuration. You have to select speaker size and placement and a number of other characteristics to get results. A review of the setup instructions in accordance with the physical size of the speakers you are using and nominal impedance values may help.

Consider the audio path that has 'lower' volume. DVR and TV might be one and the same. Does it pass through, say, the TV's volume control, before hitting the reciever on the way to your ears? Use the FIXED audio output if it has one. Or there may be a setting to make it Fixed (constant).

No sound on sony tv


Your set may have a choice of audio sources and outputs in the basic (initial) setup since it is not uncommon to mute the internal speakers and get your sound from a home theatre system or receiver. Also, if you are using S-video connectors between converter and set, there is no sound path, this is video only, and you will have to add a couple of cables, likely with RCA connectors, between the two.
For reference: Audio cables: Red=right channel, White=left.

I believe I have the solution....but it depends on your dvd player's zuxilarily capabilities. Do you have a second set of OUTPUT plugs that are colored Red and White on the back of the TV? Do you have a separate Red and White INPUT plugs on the back of the dvd? The TV must use the speakers in the DVD system by pushing the sound OUT. You cannot accomplish this if the dvd is only pluged into the INPUT of the tv.
\Another option is o make sure your DVD player has a "auxilary" or separate input channel on the console or remote.
I have a DVD home theatre system as well, not the same brand, but that shouldn't make a difference . Its a matter of how the sound is received.

Hope that helped.

My wireless speakers are not working i don't know why


After some research i came with the solution!!! First Turn off the home theater and turn it on again,lower the volume completely. Then on the dvd unit press the fast forward key>>>> while at the same time you press the number 3 on the remote control. A letter p is going to show oh the display. When this is happening there is a small button on the receiver on the back, you might need a thin object to reach the botton and press it. Press it once and the light will change from red to green. To finish up repeat the fast forwar>>>> key on the unit while pressing #3 on the controller and boom!!!!! the w1 will stop flashing and your surround speakers are rocking!!!!! enjoy it!!!!!!

Try to increase the speaker levels through setup. I had the same problem and I increased the speaker level from 0dB to +10dB, and seems like it is better now. Let me know how you make out.
