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.

Receiver doesn't play sound until it's warmed up 5 - 10 minutes


Unfortunately, your question has too many variables. Try this. Unplug the unit. Plug it back in. When you first push the power button, you should immediately hear one mechanical click from the unit, followed by a second click with 5-10 seconds. If you don't hear the second click, the unit may have a condition known as DC Offset. It would be unusual to have DC Offset only within the first 5-10 minutes. It's possible that power supply has an issue where both the positive and negative voltages are not coming up at the same time.

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 Sound Space12 powers on but there's no display and no manual or remote functions to operate the discs or the other functions.Can you provide a answer.regards


If the system is connected properly and the main tuner power is on you will see the orange standby light on in the front of the main diamond shaped control unit. If that light is not on, you have not connected the system and power cables properly.

If the standby light is not lit, press the power on/off button in the middle of the rectangular processor/tuner to turn it off and unplug the main power cord from the main tuner/processor from the wall. Next, ensure that all of the power, video and audio cables from the diamond shaped control unit are properly connected to the large tuner/processor. Since you are there, check any other av in/out connections.

Now that you have checked and adjusted the cables between the controller and the tuner, plug the tuner back into the wall and push the power on button. Now check the standby light again on the diamond shaped controller unit.

Once that light is lit, press the silver, horizontal on button in the middle of the diamond shaped display unit, or the Power Standby/On button on your main remote control and you are operational.

The speaker wires are crossed!! That means the negative part of the speaker wire is somehow touching the positive side. Check all wires from the reciever to all speakers. Good luck.
