RCA RS2656 Shelf System

Just the tweeters are working and 2 of the 4 fuses were blown we replaced them and they instantly blew again. The 2 fuses that were blown are the bottom 2 fuses.

    Same problem. (2) 7A 125v fuses blew when vacuum cleaner was plugged into the same circuit. Replaced fuses - they immediately blew when the unit was turned on.

    I have a RCA RS 2656 and it also seems I have lost all my base sound. I have not done any thing to fix it, but I see from some of the other questions there are some fuses, can someone tell me where to locate the fuses.

    Thank You

    most electronic component stores dont sell just one fuse and just one capacito, they usually sell bulk packages. take your stereo to a repair man

Had a problem with a customer's stereo system, i replaced the transformer and put in two new fuses and all worked good again. Another time it was a damaged capacitor allowing full charge to go through causing the fuse to blow immediately so i just replaced the capacitor and the fuse and all was good.

Full sound not working

I had the same problem and also traced it back to two of the four 7-amp fuses were blown. I replaced the fuses, but they immediately blew again. I used higher capacity fuses (10 amp) to see how bad the problem was and those blew. Testing the problem a third time with the speakers disconnected yielded the same results.
There's an internal short in the system.
The solution? Don't buy RCA again.

RCA 5-CD Shelf System, RS2654 Fuses

Never ever replace a fuse with a bigger one, you are lucky the unit did not blow up and statrt a fire. When a fuse blows there is usually a reason.There is a short in the main power supply or the output stage. You will need to test for shorts on the main transformer, B+ rectifiers and the main filter capacitors. If that does not show any shorts, you will need to test the audio output circuits for shorts on the audio output IC's. Good Luck
