Re: won't do anything

On page 5 of the user manual, there is a note about a "Child Lock". The solution may be to put the remote in the VCR mode, and press the ON/OFF Button for 8 seconds and the word "LOCK" should go away

RT2770 cuts out above a volume setting of 30.

Bass and other settings may be set too high and are overdriving the unit.

If all else fails try the old unplug it for a while and then plug back to see if that helps.

What if anything else is hooked up at the same time to this system?

Player says its locked and we cant get it to unlock

Go here to get manual.

i scanned the manual, and it does not refer to anything about "LOCKED" on the display.

Try unplugging it and while unplugged change the batteries in the remote. Plug the unit back in. See if it responds.

Then go to the manual and reset to factory settings (page 21 and 22 of the manual).

My Panasonic SC-HT995W keeps on flashing W and the rear speakers wont work. Ive tried turning off all other wireless devices but it still persists

I had exactly the same problem. My unit worked fine until a loose power cable resulted in the receiver being turned on and off a couple of times in quick succession and then after this the a/c in light on the rear speaker was lit but the wireless link light would not come on (and the 'W' on the main unit flashed constantly). The solution for me was basically a reboot. This is what I did;
- unplug the wireless receiver
- unplug the main unit
- remove the digital transceiver unit from its slot in the back of the main unit
- plug the main unit back in and turn it on - the 'W' won't flash as the transceiver has been removed (not sure if you if it's necessary but I made sure it was producing sound to the front speakers)
- unplug the main unit again
- reinsert the digital transceiver
- plug the main unit back in, turn it on and set it to produce output/sound (the 'W' will be flashing)
- then plug the wireless receiver back in again
...presto the link is made, the 'W' stops flashing and the rear speakers work again.

Hope this elaborate reboot works as well for you as it did for me.

Receiver display started scrolling fast through set-up options on it's own and then stopped scrolling with "V1 PLX Movie" in the display and none of the front panel buttons including the power switch have...

Try this, but you'll lose any presets and setups.

To reset the AV receiver to its factory defaults, turn
it on and, while holding down the [VIDEO 1] button,
press the [STANDBY/ON] button. “Clear” will
appear on the display and the AV receiver will enter
Standby mode.

Speaker pop

Volume is up to high to begin with or there could be some power source close to the unit that is causing it. Turn down or turn off volume and try to do it. Thsi isn't a broken system it does happen to some units, mine included butr when I do the things I have listed it is much better. It is worse with my better sound systems.

Sony STR-D460Z receiver

A common cause are failures in the amplifier output stage, the drivers, and some of the support components. You will have to send the unit out for service.

Problems with RCA RT2620

I have this exact problem, it appears the power on/off switch no longer works. After re-setting by unplugging the unit, use the remote only. As for the display, I find that if I turn the home theatre on last, the unit works and if I turn it on first, it behaves as you described.
