Question about RCA RT2760 System

RT2760 overheats and shuts off

I have an RT2760, only about 1 year old. after using it for 20-30 minutes it shuts off and the speakers "pop". if i leave it shut off for 10 minutes or so, and turn it back on it will work for another 30'ish minutes. it's not because its using more power than it is rated for because it still does it even if the volume is on 1.

    within seconds of turning my system all i hear is a pop and it shuts down but the last thing i see on the display as it fades it something about "overload"

    I have a RCA RTD260 that totally shuts down after about 35-40 minutes of play. I have check to ensure the sleep timer is not on. After I start it up again, it plays another 10 minutes and shuts down again. What in the world is wrong? When I call the number in the manual it is disconnected.

    Mine only powers on and then the speakers POP and then no sound. Stays on but no sound. This receiver is only 1 year old. What a piece of crap. Bought 10 Year old Yamaha Reciever with Bose speakers. At least it works. :-(

    I'm not sure if mine is over heating, but it powers up, everything is hooked up correctly and I have no sound! Any ideas?

As these units get old, the solder joints can start to fail. Also, come of the components are getting tired. If you have no electronics experience, bring this to a servicer. I typically overhaul these units for about $100 plus parts. In most cases, the parts costis less than $20. These are solid units and you can probably get another 30 years out of it.

Part of the overhaul should be reseating all of the output transistors and replacing all of the heatsink compound as well as cleaning out all of the pots and switches.

Keep us posted.

Amplifier overheat`s afet a couple minutes and shuts off....but still keeps on getting warmer and warmer till it's boiling???

have your speakers checked for possible impedance chnage, probably shorted one of the coils. otherwise if this is a new set then possible that you have a mismatched speaker impedance, using a speaker set with lower impedance than the minimum required. specially if you're using multi channel amplifier. shutting off is a protection, that makes your system safe for damage
