RCA STAV-3880 RECIEVER FOR CHEAP. I DOES NOT RECOGNIZE DIGITAL

I JUST GOT A RCA STAV-3880 FOR CHEAP. IT DOES NOT SHOW ANY TYPE OF BUTTONS ON THE PANEL TO INDICATE ANY TYPE OF FIMILIAR AJUSTMENTS AVAILABLE. I DIDN'T GET THE REMOTE. WHEN I ATTEMPTED TO HOOK UP MY DVD PLAYER RCA, THE OPTICAL LIGHT ON THE DVD PLAYER IS ILLUMINATED. THE RECIEVER ISN'T. THIS MAKES ME BELIEVE IT ISN'T READY TO RECIEVE SIGNAL. QUESTION... DO SOME RECIEVERS NEED THE REMOTE TO MAKE NECESSARY AJUSTMENTS? ALL I GET IS ANALOG...NO DIGITAL. THK FOR ANYONES INPUT.

1. Plug the toslink optical cable into optical input #2

2. Push the CDR/Tape button so the screen says CDR/Tape

3. Press the signal select button so the left hand side of the screen where it says "signal select" says digital.

4. Press the speakers button so just SP>A is lit up.

This should get sound out of the unit using the front buttons and the optical inputs.

If you have SP>B or SP>AB lit up you will not get 5.1 stereo, only stereo. No center channel, sub, etc.

I have found that on some units you unfortunately need the remote for more advanced settings. Sorry man.

RCA Stav-3880 turn stereo on goes to full volumn


Take the batteries out of the remote control, then apply a piece of black tape over the IR sensor, Unplug the power, wait a few minutes, now power the unit back up, does the unit still have the same volume high symptom? If so, remove the tape and see if the unit responds to any other commands(other than volume) from the front panel. If it responds to the panel controls, the processor is most likely good. very seldom is the IR transistor bad, if it is no input command will work.

Installed surround sound, no picture on tv


I could not get my TV to recognize an S-video signal from my reciever either. I ended up just bypassing the reciever and running the video straight from the cable box to the TV. It might be a better option anyways as some quality is lost if you run it through the reciever.
