No Audio With RCA RT2500

Have a problem with my RT2500 where I have no audio output. Found that fuses F106 and F107 (125v 1.5a). After replacing fuses the unit would not power on (standby light on). Pulled fuses and was able to power on with holding the standby sw and unplug and plug. Put F106 in and powered on and did not blow fuse but when I put in F107 it powered on and blew the fuse again. Looks like F104-F07 are on the outbut of the large xformer (behind small speaker board). Also noticed that the 6800uf 16v caps (beside heat sink) were bulging at the top although I had not other audio problems prior to this. Have not checked resistance between the windings of the xformer yet (with 60-70 hour work week have limited time). Haven't been able to locate a schematic for this product so any insite would be helpful. Thanks...

Re: No Audio With RCA RT2500

I had the same problem! My fix was replacing both fuses and both 6800uf 16volt
capacitors. You can get the fuses at radio shack and I found the caps on ebay
in canada.

Low Frequency Effect

in this case the audio is good but the output speaker is not working because you have blown fuse at the amplifier section thats why cant hear the sounds... check the amplifier section then check the fuse speaker protector.. replace a new fuses with the same rate....

Lost my remote for my RCA RT2500 Audio/Video Receiver and i cant turn it on because the power button is stuck on standby. I purchased another remote model CRK76 but it wont turn unit on. I also unplugged...

You need to confirm if the power switch is working as the button is stuck . So it is best to get this part corrected before we move to the remote as the power switch or the button aligment can be corrected if you open to check the continuity.
Next the remote controller must be checked for the IR outputs. please check this link below for tips to repair or find a link for a universal type remote.

I am connected to the TV from the sound system. Of my six speakers connected, I can only get sound from the SW, and the front L & R speakers. No sound is coming out of the Center or Rear L & R. ...

You don't say HOW the 'TV' audio is carried to the RT2500? TV's are usually the end of the chain, not a link in it. For multichannel audio you need a multichannel digital source. Is that the TV or would it be the cable/sat box? Try running a digital audio cable from one of those to the RCA.

Rear speakers not working

Your FM tuner will only generate sound from the front sepakers. CD's, Tape, and I guess mp3 player, as well, will only play through the front speakers.
I've included a link for the manual. The audio on this rig is pretty complex. read through the info, especially pages 11,12,13, and play with the audio controls.

What is the remote conrol code for an RCA A/V Receiver?

If you are looking for a code to program a universal remote, you probably won't find one. Universal remotes are for TV DVD VCR and Cable boxes. A replacement remote might be found at MCMelectronics or Vance Baldwin. I would guess $40-$60

RCA rt2500 "CHK SPKR" comes on when i turn it on.

"CHK SPKR" Check Speakers. Remove all speaker wires and turn on receiver. If it still says check speakers, you have an amp that needs output transistors or possibly just soldering of an emitter resistor but thats rare.

Similar problem here, at first 20-30 min warm-up time, followed by irregularity in sound levels, to a complete failure after using for around 30 minutes after warm up (choppy sound to a steady buzz). I wonder if over heating has something to do with it since I left it on all the time after the need of a warm-up occurred. One night, a horrid buzz came from the system and ever since it would become unbearable to listen too after a few minutes, I am debating either to attempt a fix or chunk it. I haven't tried the caps and fuses yet, but seeing your problem leads me to believe it is something more to the problem, and more likely a better investment would be an upgrade.
