Question about RCA RT2380 Home Theatre System System

RCA surround sound system probs

This system, after being left on over night, will not turn on anymore.  I unpluged it for a whole day, plugged it back in, the red light turns on (saying it has power) when you press the power button, the red light goes out and you can hear a click (which is normal), then nothing happens.
I left it alone for a few months, and it started working again.  So I hooked it back up.  The other day, I used it again, and forgot to turn it off.  Guess what happend....... it doesn't work anymore.  Its doing the same thing again.   Im at witts end with this system.  Im pretty electroniclly inclined, so I know that its not from wireing or anything.  Im just confused on whats going on.  Any answers to this?

HI...

MOst likely a component connection that opens" no circuit" when heated then "might" connect again at some future date..Maybe at the return of Jesus or something.

It's not something that a consumer can fix.
Take it to a tv /stereo repair shop and have them look for bad solder joints in the amplifier section

Hi i have recently got a lg surround system without a manual, i think all the speakers are set up correctly as i have done a sound test on it and they all seem to make noise however i am having trouble...


You should have 2 RCA jacks on your TV and on the back of your receiver ... a white and a red. These are the left and right audio jacks. Generally, I hook up the audio out from the TV to the DVD player, then from there into the receiver ... this makes it easier to turn off the connection to your receiver if you want to use the TV speakers for news and whatever (by turning the DVD player off). Once the RCA cables are all hooked up, the information should have no problem transferring to your surround sound receiver. Now that the connections are all made, check the settings on your receiver. Make sure that you have the surround sound turned on, and that the receiver has all speakers selected (hunt through the menus and find the "dolby 5.1" or "THX" surround options and turn one on. This SHOULD resolve the problem.
If this did not repair your issue, make sure that all of your equipment that you are running through is all capable of surround sound (if you have a really cheap DVD player like me, it may not be able to handle surround sound). If your TV is surround capable (LCD, Projection, and Plasma TVs are usually all capable of this ... CRT tvs are not always capable) but your DVD player is not, hook your TV's audio RCA cables directly to your surround sound receiver and you should be set. If your TV and DVD player are not capable of Dolby or THX surround sound, then you will probably not be able to use that feature, so your satellite speakers might not work, but the main left and right should still work fine.
One other thing that I have had issues with in the past is the connections on the back of the receiver. If you are using speaker wire (a lot of newer systems have input jacks instead of wire because they are easier to deal with) then make sure you have stripped enough of the wire to make a good connection in the back of your receiver. If you have too little wire exposed, or if you have pushed the wires in too far, the insulator on the wire will block the connection. To be sure this is not the case, be sure that only the exposed part of the wire is sticking into the back of your receiver. Also, make sure that you are not trying to run too much wire between the receiver and the speakers -- if you have a 100ft wire between the system and the speakers, they might not be getting a strong enough signal to work -- you can buy a signal amplifier for your speaker wire, or you can use a shorter wire.
Most likely you have to find the settings in your menu and turn on the other speakers. If the sound test worked for all of the speakers, the connections are all good, and it is the system not telling the speakers to work.

Sorround sound switchboard lit up and quit working.


If the fan is making weird noises there is either something wrong with the bearing or it has ingested something.

Maybe you could look, listen closely and determine which it is. If it's foreign matter you may be able to extract or vacuum it out. If it's just bearing noise, you have to decide how bothersome it is and if a shop visit is justified. A clog is BAD because the fan is protecting the unit from high temperatures.

I've bought a panasonic sound surround dvd player and want to link it to a sky+ box and tv so that sky will play in sound surround. Can you advise on the wiring configuration please?


look at the back of your tv does it have a audio out RCA jack?
it should do plug in the surround sound into that using RCA cables

if your tv does not have audio out RCA jack then you can

get a adapter which makes scart connectors turn into RCA jacks get that off ebay

plug the yellow line to the tv and connect the red and white to suround sound
but with this there are a few problems sound will only come out when surround sound is turned on and skys sound will never play out the tv
if you switch to a PS3 or something it will not play suround sound

yuo best option is the RCA plugs in the back of the tv

because you have not written the model number of the tv or the suround sound i cant help any further

Bose CD for Surround Sound System


First suggestion by Bose was to unplug the power cord for about 30 minutes and then plug it back and hit the Eject button...didn't work. Second suggestion was to unplug the power, tilt the unit up onto its left side and then "whack" the bottom of the left side a couple of good whacks. Worked fine and cassette would then eject.

Hooking up video


I am assuming that you are using a surround sound system?If so on the back of the satellite receiver you will have RCA cables labled yellow ,red,white uuse an rca cable to run from the output on the back of the sat box to an rca input on the surround sound unit.the inputs should be labled on the back of the surround sound unit.once you have the sat box plugged in look for the output on the surround sound (rca cables) run one set of rca cables to the rca cable input of the Tv.on the original tv remote select the tv input that is the cable from the surround sound is plugged in to . make sure the surround sound unit input is selected to the input that the sat box is plugged into.this will give you surround sound from your satellite receiver,repeat with your DVD player plugging the DVD rca cable output to another empty input on the surround sound.to switch between the sat box (satellite TV) to DvD select another input on the surround sound unit.Try to correspond the units you are plugging into the surround sound to the correct name of the component on the back of the surround sound unit to avoid confussion.any questions,Im here to help.If this works rate me FIXYA! if it helps.GOOD LUCK!
