I'm not completely certain about yours, but on most Sony decks you can get to a manual tuning mode by pressing and holding the seek buttons. In other words, if you press and release the tuning button, it will automatically jump to the next channel. If you press and hold the button for a second, it should beep and possibly start flashing an "M" on the screen. After that, it should stop scanning when you release the button, without jumping to the next station.

Storing the strongest broadcast
frequencies
BSM (best stations memory) lets you automatically
store the six strongest broadcast frequencies.
1 Use MULTI-CONTROL to select BSM in
the function menu.
2 Press MULTI-CONTROL to turn BSM on.
The six strongest broadcast frequencies are
stored in the order of their signal strength.
# To cancel, press MULTI-CONTROL again.
Tuning in strong signals
Local seek tuning lets you tune in only those
radio stations with sufficiently strong signals
for good reception.
% Press LOCAL repeatedly to select the
desired setting.
FM: OFF—LEVEL1—LEVEL2—LEVEL3—
LEVEL4
MW/LW: OFF—LEVEL1—LEVEL2
The LEVEL4 setting allows reception of only
the strongest stations, while lower settings let
you receive progressively weaker stations.

You can also perform this operation in the menu
that appears by using MULTI-CONTROL.
Selecting alternative frequencies
When the tuner cannot get a good reception,
the unit automatically searches for a different
station in the same network.
1 Use MULTI-CONTROL to select AF in the
function menu.
2 Press MULTI-CONTROL to turn AF on.
# To turn off, press MULTI-CONTROL again.

! Only RDS stations are tuned in during seek
tuning or BSM when AF is on.
! When you recall a preset station, the tuner
may update the preset station with a new frequency
from the station’s AF list. No preset
number appears on the display if the RDS
data for the station received differs from that
of the originally stored station.
! During AF search, sound may be temporarily
interrupted.
! AF can be turned on or off independently for
each FM band.

I have RT2280. Audio levels used to be 1-50, now


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:

Presets stopped working


I have repaired a few of these receivers in the past few years and have found several with microprocessor issues and some with a lot of heat stressed solder connections on the main amplifiers board around the voltage regulators.

The problem you are having is similar to problems the others I have repaired were having.

There is nothing you can, as an end user, do beyond a hard reset of the microprocessor by unplugging the unit from the wall and wait about an hour or 2 before you plug it back in.

By resetting the microprocessor you can at least see if the problem is a minor one or not. most likely it is an electronic problem that will take some good troubleshooting skills.

The bigger problem you face with this particular unit is that RCA no longer supplies parts for the audio equipment they sell.

Once the supply of what they have in stock is gone, thats it, no more parts at all for RCA audio. That supply has not been replenished in around a year.

All of the RCA audio equipment sold now is exchange only if it is under warranty.

I know this because I work at an authorized RCA repair center and I am the audio tech. I have not repaired an RCA audio unit under warranty in about a year because of that.

I have fixed 3 or 4 of the same unit you have, but not under warranty.

If you or somebody you know has very good soldering skills you can try reflowing the solder connections on the main board and even reflowing the microprocessor. It could solve your problem, but not advisable unless you are very good with a soldering iron and have done this sort of thing before.

I am sorry for this rather bad news, but it is true. I have been repairing audio equipment for over 17 years and am very familiar with RCA products.

If I can be of any further help please let me know.

Possible solution for some of the problems listed: Turn the clock upside down so that the label is readable in the upper left area. On the right side you will find a compartment which may have two "AA" batteries installed. These back up the setting when the clock is unplugged.

To reset the clock, you will have to BOTH remove the batteries AND unplug the AC power cord. Also, make sure the batteries are not dead.

Finally, although I cannot confirm this, there is an opening directly under the label (still looking at the bottom of the clock) which appears to be a "Reset" switch. A pointed object such as a ballpoint pen or toothpick will be needed to press this recessed button. Hope this helps. Mine is working just fine.

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.
