Question about RCA RT2500 System
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.
