Question about RCA RT2250 System

1 Answer

RCA RT2250 consistant shutting off in Satalite mode.

I can have the Fm tuner on and it plays for hours. I have the Satalite going thru the VCR and it plays for hours. As soon as I push the Sat button on the Receiver it shuts off 5 to 10 minutes down the road. I had it going for 30 minutes from a cold start the other day now all it wants to do is shut off. What is wrong? It started out by turning off and turning right back on. Now it doesn't like to stay on. If you can help me Please do, because the feed thru the VCR isn't the best. Thank You for your help.

Re: RCA RT2250 consistant shutting off in Satalite mode.

Mine will always just turn off every minute or so after a hard shut down(ex: power outtage). I have to turn it back on and then hold the set button for a few seconds, then it stays on, until i turn it off manually, since the remote won't turn it off.

The audio keeps going in and out and cuts off. Also I have other devices going into aux in but it doesn't show 5.1 surround it only shows the front L, Front R, and CT speakers in stereo. I want everything...

If you are playing a source that is Stereo such as FM Radio or a CD the sound will not use all 5.1 speakers unless you enable the correct Surround Mode. On the remote there is a button on the lower right of the remote that says SURROUND. You can toggle through the various surround modes with this button the mode you want is Dolby Pro Logic The Pro Logic mode uses the built-in circuit to steer the Left, Center, Right and Mono Surround channel audio signals and uses all five speakers to play both stereo and Dolby Pro Logic program source, such as TV and VCR. You can use this mode with any stereo program source (such as VCR/TV) to enjoy multi-channel sound experience.

Rear speakers not working

Your FM tuner will only generate sound from the front sepakers. CD's, Tape, and I guess mp3 player, as well, will only play through the front speakers.
I've included a link for the manual. The audio on this rig is pretty complex. read through the info, especially pages 11,12,13, and play with the audio controls.

I have a RCA RT2250 and I have a green light on a circuit board

Check the solder connections on the seven voltage regulators found in the center of the receiver on the heat sink from front to back (not the amp board) they are on the main board. The green light on the DSP board (back right side) is an error light. You can reset the receiver by pushing power then stadium then night then dsp off then club after unplugging the receiver and plugging it back in.

Hope this helps,

when it is playing a cd? well I guess your optical lens has a problem.. adjusting the variable resistor at the side of the optical lens (you can find the optical lens inside your unit where the cd/dvd is playing)..
if your using for radio? bad solder is the main problem, and a capacitor is almost going to blow( but it won't blow if it was installed properly). changing it is the best way.
