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

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

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!

RCA RTD215 surround sound


I could only get surround sound for DVD, NOT cable/TV--regular audio jacks only give stereo for cable/tv, NOT surround sound. Very disappointing. Any thoughts/solutions for how to get surround sound? Cable box has digital output, but no input on the rtd 315, any help available? THX

Hmm. let me see if I get U correctly. you use u'r theater system with a TV and the audio is fed via optical or U have DVD player that you can feed the audio via optical or coax. I think it is the later, if it is U could be having trouble with sound decoding setting of the DVD player itself. It's like mpeg out or PCM out instead of full DTS or 5.1 dolby digital decoding. If this is the case just use u'r dvd remote and check the audio play back settings. If this does not solve u'r problem, pls state u'r set up briefly, so tht I can understand the type of connection u use. Happy troubleshooting Rifaa

Need help fixing


I had the same problem a couple years ago with mine. After letting it set for several months, I tried to plug it in again after moving into another house. All of a sudden, it started working again. That was 1 year ago, but just last week...it did it again. I noticed that it does this if it is left on for an extended amount of time (my wife goes to bed at night and leaves it on). I cannot find anything on how to fix it, and no warranty assistance from RCA. I'm purchasing a Sony today, but will hold onto the RCA in case it decides to work again.
