SOURCE: Disc Tray Won't Open

I have contacted Venturer Electronics Inc. (which have recently purchased RCA); they are in Toronto, Ontario. They suggested to perform a Manufacturer Reset (as follows); and if it works; system should power up [this means there was a glitch in the software]...(this usually happens when system is plugged into a power bar or surge protector) if not, contact them @ 1-800-721-4007. They honor the manufacturer's (RCA) 1 year warranty... with receipt.

To reset Unit:
Unplug Unit from AC power (other wires can stay connected)
Press the On/Standby button in front of Unit 15 times
Wait 30 minutes
Replug Unit to AC power
Press the On/Standby button to power up unit
Wait couple of minutes for unit to do its thing

**If unit works properly, then ensure not to plug unit into power bar or surge protector, keep plugged into wall.
**If unit will not power up properly, contact them for further instructions.

Hope this is helpful....
My Unit powered up wonderfully and is currenlty working like a charm.
Good luck!

try these codes:

  • 178

here is another way to program the remote:

  2. aim the reomte control at the device and press and hold down the code search button for at least 3 seconds until the red led lights up solid red
  3. press the device button you wish to program tv, vcr, dvd,etc and the led light will blink once and then remain solid red
  4. press on/off slowly and repeatly until the device your trying to program shut off
  5. once this occurs press enter button to store the code and the led light eill turn off
thanks

SOURCE: Reads all as BAD DISC

my friend do you try to adjust the 2 potentiometer behind the dvd lens.?
there is 2 potentiometer and they can maybe be the problem.
but you have to be very delicated. and move only by milimeters. becouse if you move a lot maybe the unit no read more.
if you need help and you fell ready to do that ask to me.

SOURCE: RCA RTD315 Theater System The DVD Player recently

My identical system has exactly the same problem as the one described by dipaola, above. When I insert a DVD, the DVD carriage pops back open after a few seconds. In fact, mine won't stay closed even without a DVD in it, as long as the system is set to play a DVD. I'd like an answer to the big Q - Is there anything I can do about this, or should I just find another DVD player to hook into the system?

The draws are not opening for me to play my dvd's


do visual inspection, try prying the cover open without force.
try putting can of air threw the door opening of the unit.

this can be many things
the switch for the draw it self
the computer that runs the system
it could be jammed
the dvd stuck in the machine and the 5-disc holder
with the unit off put your noise where air goes threw the equipment and smell to see if you smell something has burned smell, if you like something has burn the circuit than the unit need to be repaired.

is the unit have any type of Warrant with it.
if not just take it apart and play with it and maybe you mite fix it or
give to kid or friend that play with electronic stuff, they would fix it for free.
it is may not be worth fixing, call around for labor cost, parts.
than go look online or walmart or price check on the item you want and than deside if it is worth fixing

good luck rod

My RCA RTD 206 5 disc changer wont play DVD's. It stays on Disc 3 or just says close. I called the # in the manual foe help, but its no longer in service.


If it plays the same disc without issues, you have a mechanical(or the electronics powering the motors and such) problem. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Keeps reading no disc


discs can be faulty and lasers can be lazy try another dvd play and try another disc. if you can get a disc to play then try the the one that failed again straight after. persistent problems of this nature usually mean its time to buy a new dvd player

I am trying to hook my home theater system to my flat screen tv to play dvd's and to hear the radio.


The TV has nothing to do with listening to the radio. All the TV REQUIRES in as a minimum is a video input from the RTD. Page 2.

Your other devices may have guidance in their manuals.
