Question about RCA RT2600 System

1 Answer

I've found an RCA RT-2600 HT for $10. Receiver showed "overload", now won't power. It's also missing a rear speaker. Is the receiver fixable? If not, what receivers are compatible w/the subwoofer? Also, what speakers would be a good replacement? I want to spend next to nothing (~$50) on this. I should be able to solder in new components in receiver.

    It's a powered sub.

  • raunch Dec 20, 2008

    Just RT2600. No DVD.

  • raunch Dec 20, 2008

    Other posts have said when you get an overload on this it's fried.

  • raunch Dec 20, 2008

    Any chance it's fixable?

  • raunch Dec 21, 2008

    Might I be able to fix it myself if you can tell me the most obvious parts to replace? I'm paying $10 for the speakers. This was free. I'm willing to put $30 or so into it.

    Also, is there a way to run the powered sub with a non-sub receiver?

    My system will not power up. It was working fine until the other night when we tryed to watch a DVD. After 10 min. the sound went out and the system shut off. Tryed to start and nothing. When I push the power botton the diplay flashes. I couldn't make the word out until I got real chose to the unit. I believe it says "overload". I hope it's not fried!!!!

There may be a fuse inside the cover. I replaced the 2 front and 2 rears with pioneer S-HF21-lR 2 way,100 watters. they are bookshelf size speakers, but trust me they rock. you wont be disappointed. im pwering them with a sony receiver. no problem. if its a typical rca sub, its non powered and will work with about any receiver.

  • Stephen Evans Dec 20, 2008

    sounds about right, thats what rca replied to me.

  • Stephen Evans Dec 20, 2008

    It would cost more to fix it than you paid for it. It has been discontinued by Rca

  • Stephen Evans Dec 21, 2008

    I really cant get any info on the unit, being dicontinued. Does it have a circuit board? if so remove it and see if their are anysigns of burns on it, some of the components you may be able to get at radio shack. Also there should be a step down transformer, so to speak. see if you can see if it has power coming out of it. About the speaker, if it has no sub output, you wont get the sound field designed to go to a subwoofer.

Can i hard wire my rt 2770 rca home theater subwoofer to my receiver lost white plug that plugs into receiver and can't find a new one?


I have one if you still need it. Hooked my sub up to a different receiver and cut that end off to hard wire it. It has about a foot of wire and the white plug on the end that goes into the receiver.

Tip

Instead of resetting rear speakers each time.....


I have found a similar problem with the rear speakers on this unit (needing to be reset each time the unit was turned off), but found a quicker way around it.....with both the main unit off and the rear receiver off: turn on the rear speaker receiver, then the main unit. If the blue light on the rear receiver does not come on, turn off the main unit, and turn it back on again. This has worked for me ~50 times or so and has worked repeatedly. It's faster than going through the reset phase each time. Also when turning off the system, turn off the main unit first, and then the rear receiver. Sometimes I also simply leave the rear receiver on since it pulls only 4 Watts. Hope this helps any users.....(it also works on my boyfriends older generation model).

Have lenoxx ht 500 surround sound speakers & dvd but dvd is broken, need to purchase another dvd player but can't source lenoxx model, what other models can i connect surround sound to? or whe


If your surround sound receiver unit has rca audio inputs(red/white), you can hook up any brand of DVD player that has rca outputs. You would hook the yellow output from DVD player to yellow input on TV. Hook red/white output from DVD player to red/white input on surround receiver. Hope this helps.

I purchase a Panasonic Blu-Ray Home Theatre SC-BT330PCK with the intent of using it as a surround sound system for my TV and having a Blu-Ray as a bonus. Is it possible to have them work independently?


Hello there,

Yes it is possible and relatively simple to do. I suspect you have only connected an HDMI cable from the Home Theater system (HT) to the TV. This cable only sends audio and video to the TV from the HT system - it can't be used to receive the audio from the TV back to the HT.

To get audio from the TV channels through the HT speakers, you will need to connect a separate audio cable from the AUDIO OUT sockets on the TV to the HT. This can be either a Digital Optical cable (connects to socket ringed in green) or an RCA type stereo audio cable (connects to AUX sockets ringed in red).

If you are using a cable or satellite receiver, you should connect the receiver directly to the HT rather than the TV. You would also need to select the correct INPUT on the HT when you want to use the speakers for the TV channels. This will be DIGITAL 1 if using the digital optical cable or AUX if using the RCA stereo audio cable.

The audio connections are explained on page 16 of your user manual and input selection is explained on page 23. If you don't have a manual, please let me know and I can supply one.

I can draw you a diagram showing how to connect your TV to the HT and provide step-by-step instructions for setting it up, but you will need to let me know the brand and model number of your TV. If you are using a cable or satellite receiver, please let me know the brand and model number of this receiver as well.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

Sony HT-CT100 soundbar + STR-DG720 = Yes misery, no audio


It's not going to do whayt you want. On the premise that you can't run a dedicated receiver to a dedicated receiver. One processor is not going to override another. The soundbar is a "self contained" closed system. Much like Bose products. I understand what you are looking for, it just can't be done with this product. Options: replace the sony soundbar with a passive polk soundbar or similar and keep the AV receiver or: Return the AV receiver and use the nice, but limited sony amplified soundbar. Hope this helps

HELP: Onyo Remote Does Not Recognize Receiver when using Cable


Since you have the cable connected to the reciever thru the HDMI, you may have accidently changed the input source of the reciever from HDMI or digital to analog.

When you have the reciever set to listen to the cable, check the input mode and make sure it is set to use the HDMI or digital input and not the analog.
The rca jacks are analog, and they worked, so I think you have just solved your own problem without realizing it.

Let me know if this works and if so a good rating would be appreciated. Thanks and have a great day

Hooking up the RT 2600


connect all the devices into the receiver inputs then there should be 1 set of outputs to the tv. This is to play everything using surround sound as all the video and audio is going through your recevier... if you want to do HD and have surround sound you will need a new receiver as this one has no hdmi inputs or outputs.

Rear Wirelss speaker do not work


With the main unit turned off, press and hold [REMAIN] on the home theater's remote for 4 seconds. (The REMAIN button is directly under the 7 button). Once held down for 4 seconds, the Volume Indicator on the main unit will turn on for 1 second. Release the [REMAIN]. 

Press the [RESET] on the back of the Wireless Receiver 2-3 times. The Standby/On LED on the front of the Wireless Receiver will blink 3 times
 
Turn on the main unit. The Link LED on the wireless receiver will light up if process is done correctly. The front of the main unit will no longer say REAR CHK and the rear speakers should now function correctly.
