Question about RCA RTD255 System

Playing CD'S When I install a cd in the tray, the unit goes to READING and never plays the cd, it will do this until it times out.

    I have determined the RCA RTD255 is a piece of crap, when I connected the speaker wires on the back, 3 of the spring loaded connectors fell apart, I have decided to buy a good Japanese home theater system and use the RCA system for target practice.

Nototh, My sister and have the same problem, with dvd's or cd's... it doesn't do it all the time, but it started after about 3 1/2 months after purchase, my sister's started doing that around 5 months. Someone replied that it could be overheating from over crowding with other components... but I have it sitting by itslef, so that's not it. I personally think it's the processor, because it "acts" the same as a computer "feeze up", so I think that it just doesn't have the right processor in it to handle the speed that it's set read at. But I stated that I'm no expert in that field. And it's going to cost more than the unit is worth to fix, so I just antied up and bought a Yamaha Amp & DVD high def/Klipsch surround combo, that I am very pleased with.

CD Stops playing in middle of nowhere

Try cleaning the laser using CD Cleaner, if still won't work.You can cleaning it by your self( if you like !!)

The procedure is:
Open the CD case,by removing all the screw( unplug the power cord first).

After opened, see for the disc unit, it's mechanical unit, try opening it by removing the screw, unplug the driver cable unit and laser pickup ( very thin cables).

Then remove all the mechanical unit from the CD case, now open this unit by removing the top screw, then pull out the Disc Tray by rotating white gear under the tray.

Now you can see the lens, use a clean and soft clothes or cotton buds, use alcohol to clean the lens first, after using alcohol, use dry clothes or cotton buds to wipe it up again until the lens dry.

Resemble all back together and try operate it.

Hope it works!!!

CD tray wont stay closed

Try using a CD cleaner. Generally this sort of problem occurs due to dust accumulating on the lens. The CD cleaner comes along with a solution.just spray on the CD and allow it to play in the CD drive. Sometimes the problem might even be due to a virus. Check whether your anti-virus is up to date.

No sound when playing cd

What's cooking!? I too occasionally experience a similar problem with the RCA RS2042. When switching to the CD source, I receive sound from one speaker, while the other is faint. I have found that if you open the back and fotz around with the speaker connections (the system, not the speakers themselves), it will correct the problem. Have patience! Take care. -D
