Re: RCA RS2052 Bookshelf System

Have you tried cleaning the sensor on your stereo, and also the transmitter on the front of your remote? Otherwise check the battery terminals in the remote for corrosion to make sure the batteries havent leaked.

I need the owners manual for this and we need a new remote. How do I get this?

You can find the manual through here. The original remote, RCA part number 268773, is no longer available. But a search for that number turned up several sources for suitable replacements. Here's one I picked from the Google results (I have purchased remotes from these folks in the past), and here's another for good measure (a better price, but I've never done business with them)..

This product has an aux source. I was wondering how to work this

Aux. Is for a device input that you can add to your system.
You have 2 RCA Phono jacks on the back for plugging in the device.

Hi, All the lights on display are off. The system plays, but no info is displayed

some of possibilities are:

a) a burnt out LED (light emmiting diode) inside the display (could be tricky or difficult to change it) or a faulty LED power supply line

b) if the light source is an electroluminescent panel, possibly the panel itself or the power supply is faulty (electroluminescent panels use an elevated voltage power supply which is in the shape of a small box somewhere inside the housing, with two wires going to the panel - it is also possible that the power supply is not in the form of a box but is in fact an integral part of the circuitry).

c) a loose wire contact - check the connectors for any broken wires, oxidation on contacts or loose solder points for connectors on the circuit board

Anyway, these are just possibilities so the trouble may as well be somewhere else in the system.

My rca 5 disk vertically stacked cd changer is stuck. Won't open. How to fix it?

Try this... unplug the unit and turn it upside down.  Have a small screwdriver ready.  No plug the unit in and try to turn the wheel in the large slot clockwize.  When you see the spring clip try to grab the white plastic stop and move it clockwize.  This should eventually open the door.  It did for me.

RCA 2656 bookshelf music system cd door

I have a similar stereo system and accidentally put two CD's in one tray and it got stuck and could not open. What I did was unplug everything from the unit and took off the side panel. After some careful fiddling I got it to open. You could try something like that.

CD Changer spinning continually

i have the same exact problem with mine. what i did was manually pull open the cd deck, stop the disk carousel from spninning by holding it still, then push the deck closed. the cd deck will no longer work, but at least it stops spinning. the auxiliary works fine and so does the radio.
