    I already tried unplugging and that did not help. Have not yet discovered where the reset button might be.

Sounds to me as if someone may have gotten into the menu to adjust the individual levels of each loudspeaker and cranked some of them way up. As to why the "main" volume level goes from1-20 now as apposed to 1-50, you got me there...

Is there a reset button or equivalent on the remote or the unit? Try that. Try unplugging the unit for 15 minutes...

Here's the owner's manual:

Why does my system cut off when there is a loud noise?


By loud noise I assume you mean in the movie you're watching or the CD you're listening to.
That's the protection circuit kicking in. Depending on how you have the player configured (audio levels, effects, mode....etc) it can "overdrive" the outputs and cause the protection circuit to energize.
If this happens a lot try changing the audio mode to something a little less (change speaker levels to a lower number, no bass boost or at least not as much, etc.).
Good luck.

Klh dvc-2500 How can I lower the volume? Setting "1" is too loud. Is there some aftermarket gizmo I can wire into the speaker wires?


Your problem is VERY common. It's defective, get a replacement.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for price $70+$30 S&H, October 20, 2003 By A Customer
This review is from: KLH DVZ-2500 DVD Home Theater System (Electronics) I read alot of the recent reviews before purchasing this system. I wasn't going to buy it because of the volume problem (too loud) but some people said that this could be lowered in the 'audio properties > dynamics' setting.
Sure enough, there is a setting, but it does NOT lower the volume level at all. So, I rang the toll free 888 number and this audio level problem is a defect. However, the dynamic setting is purely to make some sounds softer, not to lower volume. I was told to get a replacement. The replacement is the exact same way ... defective. Buy this system if you only want to hear _DVDs_ with all speakers, because there are no inputs. And the radio, CD is at best stereo,
AND
if you don't mind the fact that it will be too loud, if at any stage you want a normal listening level. I gave 2 stars because I was able to watch a DVD ok with volume level one.

I have an lg lcd mod#lc427d hdtv how do i hook up an rca rt2280 system to it. i have a dvd player hooked up to tv now using hdmi cables, rca av reciever does not have them...


You can check your dvd player for a coaxial or an optical sound output, then you can plug it directly to your receiver. Those two are the best options after HDMI. Another option is A/V RCA type cable, you´ll need 3 stereo A/V wires, in order to connect the 6 channels. Remember to uncheck the HDMI sound output option on the DVD menu.

RCA RT2280 surround sound mode button wont select 5.1 dolby digital mode.


I had the same problem and this is what I did to fix it. Assuming that all of your equipment is powered on, (tv, blu-ray/dvd, rca receiver) you'll need to go into your dvd players audio menu and select the dolby digital audio.
Once you do this, the digital signal is sent to your receiver from the dvd. The receiver should automatically set itself to the dolby digital preset. If it doesn't, press the surround button until you reach it. I found part of this information here. And the rest was personal experience.
Also, it depends on if the disc format is in dolby 5.1. I hope this helps you.

Sound Problem


the amplifier must have an individual speaker volume controller that allows you to set different volume levels for each speaker independently, find it and set new levels.

Surround cuts out???


Are you useing a digital audio cable when its cutting on & off? How long between the on & off? I have the same problem when I use a digital audio cable or a coaxial audio cable from my DVD player. To use the surround (6 CH) feature you need to use the 6 channel RCA jacks and if what ever your hooking up dosent have the RCA outputs your out of luck. My DVD player does have the 6 channel outputs and they work but the digital cables won't work. What are you connecting to it? I think something is wrong with the digital circuit board in mine, I would like to replace it and see. Reading your manual will help understand the 6 channel RCA and fiber optic digital cables. I hope any of this helped.

Systems shuts off if sound gets too loud.


Yes, i had this same problem. If it was too loud, at level 37+, any loud boom would shut down the subwoofer, subsequently shutting down the speakers. As such, I figured it might have been the 8 pin dim cable, but that wasn't it. What solved the problem was lowerin the BASS level. Not the level on the subwoofer, but the actual BASS level. I had it at +10 (the max) and it was too much for the system to handle. I don't think I ever had it like that so I'm assuming someone, maybe my daughters, moved the settings. But anyway, moving the bass level back down to either 0 or +3 at most maintains the "boom" effect of the subwoofer minus the shutting off of the system.

Composite audio input plays quietly


4 longshots to try, in case you haven't allready: 1. try connecting using a different cable 2. what are you trying to connect to the VCR out? note that CD players(other personal players as well) have a headphone jack and a line out jack, and you dont allways get the same vulume output from them. 3. in case you do have it connected to the line out, try connecting a different device, because some players have lower volume levels than others, which bring me to 4. some players have a setting that lowers volume level in order to protect your hearing when using headphones. you might have to disable that. I never ran across any receiver that let you adjust volume levels of individual outs, but it might be possible that a part needs replacement, or to get amped up, have more power directed to it. consult a service man. offcourse if you're still under warranty use it, go complain... Good luck!
