I called the service center and they advised me to reset the device and this I did, without any results........please help me.

I am trying to find specs on the speakers that originally came with the RTD258 Systems Ohms? etc

Here is the RCA RTD258 spec sheet: . I found the link at . The manual is also available: .

The original speakers were all two-way, 8 Ohms, except for the sub-woofer which is one-way 8 Ohms. The amplifier gave 167 watts to each speaker.

Does this help?

Reads Bad Disc also. Just bought a memorex DVD lens cleaner disc. And that also reads bad disc.

What is the format of the data on your CD?

It is not all players that plays all CD's, so maybe the CD you inserted is among those that your player cannot play.

Or maybe you need to change the lens totally, but before you do this, try some other CD's on the player and see how it responds.

Need to reset back to factory settings

You need to go to the Manufacturer's website. There should be a designated area for trouble shooting, or product info. If not look for "Contact us" and go there. Write or call the number listed.

Disc Tray Won't Open

I have contacted Venturer Electronics Inc. (which have recently purchased RCA); they are in Toronto, Ontario. They suggested to perform a Manufacturer Reset (as follows); and if it works; system should power up [this means there was a glitch in the software]...(this usually happens when system is plugged into a power bar or surge protector) if not, contact them @ 1-800-721-4007. They honor the manufacturer's (RCA) 1 year warranty... with receipt.

To reset Unit:
Unplug Unit from AC power (other wires can stay connected)
Press the On/Standby button in front of Unit 15 times
Wait 30 minutes
Replug Unit to AC power
Press the On/Standby button to power up unit
Wait couple of minutes for unit to do its thing

**If unit works properly, then ensure not to plug unit into power bar or surge protector, keep plugged into wall.
**If unit will not power up properly, contact them for further instructions.

Hope this is helpful....
My Unit powered up wonderfully and is currenlty working like a charm.
Good luck!
