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?

I had the same issue. You can use the on screen volume buttons on screen to stop issue and don't use the physical buttons anymore. Watch out about a month after the volume problem started all physical buttons on my DXN7120 stopped working. There are a few reports of this online, I have not found a fix yet.

I have the SR6200 and I am finding I have to really crank the volume to get the same sound that I used to have on a lower volume setting----I have not changed anything---any ideas? This is occuring with...

sounds like you have an issue with the cables/leads from the receiver to the other equipment? try buying a new set of cables and/or check that the pins/plugs are in correctly, they may have been disturbed? wiggle the plugs on the leads at the back of the receiver whilst it is playing music/tv and do the same to the rear of the dvd/tv/cable unit. if you get intermittent increase in the volume it is likely that the cable has a break in one of them? good luck

Sound cuts out

No, this sounds like a speaker problem to me.
It sounds like the voice coils in your speaker(s) have been fried.
What happens is the part that is burnt does not funtion, but as you increase the volume/voltage the speaker "jumps" foward to a section of voice coil that is not as damaged.
Check your speakers!

Volume increases on it's own intermittently, takes itself off of mute.

Let's eliminate ghosts and goblins.

As a test, locate the remote control window on the front of the unit, if it has one. Set it up to watch or listen to something then cover the remote window on the unit with a small piece of cardboard. If you can't locate its infrared receiver for the remote just cover the entire front of the unit with something sufficiently opaque to block your remote. Try to operate it with th remote to be sure the unit can't see it.

If the expected problem never comes back you have a stray signal from something else in the environment getting interpreted as a 'volume up' command. Then look around for other remotes being used, wireless devices, use your imagination. I used to have a remote-controlled space heater and my TV would sometimes shut off if I used the remote. Does the unit have line-of-sight to a nearby house? Maybe something next door (garage opener?) is interfering.

If it still happens and there are no other infra-red devices nearby you have a ghost.

Sharp Aquos LC-26D4OU HDTV volume adjustment problems

If you use a digital cable box, it could be that the volume on that isn't turned up all the way. I didn't even realize the box had volume controls until 2 years after I got it...makes a HUGE difference now

There should be a volume adjust on the center channel. This is done by the remote exclusively. You may also wish to compress the sound using the dynamic range compression button or so labeled.
