RCA RT2770 receiver won't turn on!

Our RCA RT2770 receiver to the home theater system will not turn on, by remote or by pushing the on/off button (black button, rimmed in a glowing red light). I tried unplugging it, and plugging it back in with no luck. If I keep trying long enough it will eventually come back on, but it will just be a guessing game if I can get it back on later after I turn it off. We just got this system in late Decemeber ... this is really disappointing. There were no prior problems to this happening, just reached over to turn it on, and no response. I purchased the RCA RT2770 home audio system about a year ago and began experiencing intermittent receiver lockups about 6 months afterwards. As with other owners, unplugging and plugging in the power cord solved the problem, but only for a while. The freezing frequency continued to rise until the receiver froze almost every time we used it. Now this itself is a huge nuisance, but its even more annoying because each time it happens the receiver settings reset to their default values. This might be advertised at 1000 watts, but it's output level is EXTREMELY low for certain inputs. I have to max the dB output to all channels in order to hear DVDs played on my xbox360. This means that every time I use this receiver, I'm forced to try and unbrick it then select an input, re-boost the speaker outputs, and set an appropriate volume level quickly before the receiver freezes again. It's unacceptable to say the least. Not recommended for anyone.

For the noise when it starts try this. Remove cover and you will see a small fan held in place by 2 screws. Remove these screws and then remove fan. On the back of the fan you will see a sticker. Remove this sticker and apply 1...just 1 drop of oil onto the now exposed shaft. Replace the sticker, the fan and the 2 screws.

I cannot find any way of doing this from looking at either manual for the remote or the theater. It is my understanding that RCA makes "smart remotes" that supposedly recognize and control other RCA components, but I have no idea how this works. My suggestion is to read the manuals and maybe find something I didn't or contact RCA Customer Service.

Rt2770 home theater receiver rca. Hp In?

Mine does the exact same thing. If I pick up the front end of the unit and slam it down on a hard surface, it then displays HP out and sound comes out!! Freaking retarded. I wish I knew what was wrong with it! I asked RCA and of course they never responded. What a joke!

Hold down the on/off button, un-plug it, and plug it back in. see if that fixes it.
