Question about RCA RT2500 System

1 Answer

No Power on rt2580

I have a rca rt2580. Plug it up and i hear a click and the standby light comes on and will turn off if i push the power button. Found a blown fuse next to the power supply (5A 125V) so I replaced it. As soon as I plug the unit up the same fuse blows immeaditly. I have heard about a bad capacitor that will show signs of bulging but Im not seeing that on my unit. Also no signs of any other obivious problems. Does anyone have any clues on where to begin on troubleshooting this or maybe have had simular problem. Thanks!

According the parts list on the model unit your fuse is suppose to be F101,FUSE 6A 125V. Is it possible that you have an undersized fuse?

I don't believe that one amp differents would cause your unit to blow like that but, you never know. More than likely you have a bad component in the power supply or power amp.

Then again, with an average replacement cost of $150 online; it not worth getting too deep into the repairs.

I have an RCA audio/video reciever rt2580 i was messing with the settings and turned the rear speakers off and cannot get them back on ran a test and the channels are not blown there is sound coming...


Try resetting to Factory Default and see if this makes the rear speakers work again. Follow the steps below to do this.

Put the unit in STANDBY mode. Then press the following buttons in order.

1. Stadium
2. Night
3. DSP Off
4. Club

Also check your speaker connections and speaker level settings as suggested by probeboyyjl

My RCA T19060GY TV/VCR will not stay on. When I push the power button on the unit itself (I don't have the remote.), the green indicator light comes on for two seconds and I hear to click sounds


the clicking sound is due to the relay is getting turn on but doesn't stay because of bad component in the power supply board or in the main board. you must check first the bridge type diode and FET transistor using an analog or digital tester.

Red light comes on but the shuts off?


Mine did that and it really pised me of, sony told me to turn the power switch onthe back of the console on, when the stand by light comes on to push and hold the on button for at least 3 seconds until you hear a second set of beeps. This however didn`t work so I sent it back to Sony Australia and got it fixed up no worries.

TV, i plug it in, turn it on, no image, "on timer" light comes on.


If you dont hear a click theres a problem in the standby power supply. if you do hear a click theres a problem in the Main power supply or sweep supply. Get a good tech to look at this for you if your not a tech. Good Luck
