    Just bought the RCA Rtd 215 today and the mute comes on by itself. Remote doesn't work and only way to shut off player was by unplugging it. Going back to WalMart tomorrow!

    The exact same problem here. Taking this thing back to Wal Mart tomorrow, too.

    I have had my system since 11/23/07 and on 6/12/08 it began malfunctioning. It is on standby but won't turn on, and I can't find an active number for customer service.

    I got a RCA RTD 315 basically same model, i turned it on only plugged
    in a couple speakers just to test it out a little while later it
    sparked and turned off. amazingly it still worked. I connected all of
    the speakers, now one speaker is really low volume, it look like it blew
    an amplifiier maybe because no load was connected so it built up to much charge. any ideas?

I just leave mine turned on. Otherwise, I have to unplug it, and then plug it back. As far as connecting it to the TV, mine goes to the DVD-VCR, then into the HTS aux.

I think it is too late to take mine back to Wal-mart and I have everything setup (hidden wires and all that) If I play a DVD, better get it the way I want in the first 15 minutes cause after that, the remote stops responding, PERIOD. Turn off and back on manually. Wished I would have played a DVD a lot sooner than after 90 days. I can't even figure out how to get it to work with the TV. I do love the way I can hook up my I-POD to it and the surround sound works great.

I did contact RCA (whoever) support and they said they sold out the contract for support and to call some other number. GREAT!!!

I could only get surround sound for DVD, NOT cable/TV--regular audio jacks only give stereo for cable/tv, NOT surround sound. Very disappointing. Any thoughts/solutions for how to get surround sound? Cable box has digital output, but no input on the rtd 315, any help available? THX

RCA DVD home theater system RTD215 red standby light comes on but when you push button to turn on nothing happens and red light goes off. Checked fuse and it is good. Please help.

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Looks like the remote is faulty, a replacement remote may fix it.

I have rca home theater system rtd215 plays dvds fine but no sound when im watching tv programs i have no cable box just the jacks on my tv [52 projection screen phillips] and i tried hooking them into the...

This reson you are not hearing any "TV AUDIO" through your RCA surround system would be due to your tv sound output not being connected to an audio input into your surround system. You can hear DVDs,CDs and radio possibly mp3 if connected, as these are built in to the amplifier which the speakers connect to.
If the tv has a Line out (via phono plugs) and NOT via headphone out, connect it to an audio input on the RCA surround system. If the RCA has no other available inputs, well....there ain't a lot you can do but watch CSI with the sound from the TV and then Star Wars (for example) through the TV and Surround system.

I Need the five digit remote code for a RCA RTD215 DVD player to program into a universal remote

What is the make and model of the universal remote? They each have their own sets of codes, so there's not a code for your DVD that works with all universal remotes.

Post back the make and model info using the "add comment" button, and I'll do my best to look up RCA DVD player codes for it.

Surround sound does not come through my tv. Just

If your DVD player is a home theater system then the sound would come through the HT system, not the TV. On your TV you should have an 'AUDIO OUT' jack, plug that into your HT system where it has the 'AUDIO IN' or "AUX" AUDIO IN. Then when you are watching TV, just set your HT system to AUX mode or AUDIO mode.
Hope that helps.
