Question about RCA RTD260 System

Rca rt2870 doesn't work

It has power because the subwoofer has power. the ring around the on/off button is red. hitting buttons on the face of the unit and the remote do absolutely nothing to it either.

    Mine does the exact same thing. We turn it on and it works for a short time. Then the sound goes away and it freezes up.

Subwoofer not working

The subwoofer is normally the main power supply for the other speakers. When setting up the system, there is a set up guide which allows you to control the power supplied to each speaker. You may have inadvertently set the subwoofer to have 0 output.

I need a new Resistor for my RCA RT2770 the number by the resistor is R202, does anyone know what size the resistor is?

I haven't found the answere yet, but my RT2870 uses the same power supply board and this appears to be a known issue with this power supply board. keep checking this thread:

if an answer is found, it will wind up being in that thread...

also, if you found the answer, please post it to that thread, thanks!

I have an rt2870 and am just wondering where i connect the yellow subwoofer cord to the TV at, and i set my tv setting for the surround sound

You shouldn't connect the subwoofer to the TV. Just connect the Right and Left audio cables (red and white RCA plugs) to the TV audio out and then the other side goes receiver's audio in. If you are using the subwoofer that came with the unit, connect it to the sub port (purple and grey or black striped). The red and black striped cable goes to the subwoofer control.

If you are using another active subwoofer, connect it to the RCA jack labeled Subwoofer Audio OUT.

If you have a 3-plug RCA cable that is a composite video cable. The yellow plug carries the video, the red and white carry the audio signal. This cable is most often used for connecting older VCRs and game systems to a TV (or newer devices to an older TV). Thus leave the yellow jack dangling if using it for an audio cable.

Set your TV to use the external audio speakers and the receiver will take care of the signal to the subwoofer. (You only would connect the speakers individually for a computer sound system.)

I hope this helps.

RCA RT2870 home theater system 'welcome' screen

Well, I just returned the unit. RCA replied with the following solution:
Let the unit sit with the AC power cord out of the wall for a couple of
hours. Then hit the power button 10-15 times (with the AC power cord still
out of the wall socket!) and then try again.

Rca rt2870 it only says welcome

My best solution that I've found was disconnected a white ribbon cable behind the case that seemed to reset the system. Its the one that seems to control the power and the front face buttons. Ofcourse when you do this leave the power off for about 10 minutes, theres capacitors that could shock or worse kill you. Pull the White Ribbon cable and wait and plug it back in.

*I do not condone to opening your RCA Surround Sound System, You should take it to a professional TV/Stereo technician to troubleshoot your stereo to protect you from shock or death! Myself or is not responsible for the decision of its users based on instructions left. Do this fix at your own discretion. Thank You*
