Re: power cord for a rt 2500

Sandworms, that is the exact problem I had after a power out. It doesn't look the same as ducast's problem though. I posted the same solution in another thread. Here's hoping it works for you too.

When the red LED on the power button would glow, but it wouldn't turn on. Try unplugging it and plugging it back in repeatedly and it will eventually turn on. If that doesn't work try moving it to another outlet then try plugging it back in and out.

Model RT2500/ RT 2500R. Standby button is lit but when I press it the home theater fails to turn on

I had the same problem. I held down the power button while plugging the unit into the wall and it fired right up. works fine now. You might have to do this a couple of times but mine was fixed on the first try.

My model is the RT2500

MOst of the time it is the jack that the cable plugs into that has the problem. .
Also the jack is not broken but HAS broken the solder connection TO the jack.
If you know someone who can safely take it apart and solder, let them try.

Not powering on

I solved this problem on my HTS3410D.

Inside there are two circuit boards, the power supply board and the audio/video board.
  • First, unplug your unit and let it sit for a few hours.
  • Now open the unit up, and unplug all of the connectors going to or from the power supply board. You can easily tell which board is the power supply board because it's the one the power cord plugs into.
  • Unscrew the four mounting screws that hold the board to the case.
  • Using a pair of needle-nose pliers, squeeze the two white plastic clips that hold the board to the case (one at a time), while gently lifting the board away from the case.
  • Now that you have the board out, feel the tops of all the capacitors (they look like this). Healthy capacitors should have a totally flat top. (There is probably one that is covered in some sort of heat shrink, so you can't feel the top.)
  • One capacitor most likely has a slightly bulging top. That is the culprit.
  • Using a soldering iron, carefully remove the busted capacitor, making sure to note which side the stripe is on.
  • Buy a replacement capacitor at Radio Shack or that has the same capacitance (e.g. - 1000uF) an equal or greater voltage, and an equal or greater maximum temperature.
  • Insert and re-solder the replacement capacitor in the same orientation as the one you took out, then trim the excess leads.
  • Reassemble your system, and you're done.
The capacitor that died on mine was 1,000uF, 16V, 105°C. It was located fairly close to where the power cord comes in to the board. I replaced it with a 1,000uF 50V capacitor, and the system powered right up like a champ. The entire process took me about an hour.

I hope this helps some other people have similar results.
