Question about RCA RT2280 System
We lost the remote for the RCA RT2280, we now have Direct TV, but the codes in the Direct TV book for programing its remote to other components does not give correct code for RCA RT2280. Please help with said code

These receivers are know for having some bad solder connections on the main board around the heat sinks that the amp IC and the voltage regulators are attached to.
The symptoms you describe would point to that as a very likely source of your problems. That is for both of your problems.
With broken solder joints on certain components, the unit may play normal for a while and as the solder heats up it will expand and loose it's conductivity and bingo, problems with any number of things.
With heat stressed solder connections, not broken ones, the solder will conduct ok for a little while sometimes and as it heats up it gets less conductive. Many times heat stressed solder is less conductive than normal without heating up.
You can identify the heat stressed solder visually. It will be very dull, not shiny and silver like normal solder. It even gets a grainy texture to it.
Broken solder is recognized by the rings around the components lead that it is solder to.
If you have some decent soldering skills or know somebody who does, ask them to reflow the solder on the main board that looks like it could be bad. Just make sure the unit has been unplugged a while before you try it.
The bottom panel comes off of this unit if I remember correctly, or there is an access panel right under the problem area. I don't remember ever needing to take the board out of the unit.
If this information was helpful to you a good rating would be really appreciated.
One other thing you need to know is that if you need to get parts for this unit, you are out of luck. RCA no longer sells parts for the audio equipment they sell. They do have a shrinking supply of some of their parts, but once it runs out thats it for RCA audio parts.
I know this because I work at an authorized RCA repair center.

YOUR TV SHOULD HAVE A DIGITAL AUDIO OUT JUST RUN THAT TO DIGITAL AUDIO IN ON YOUR RECIEVER SET IT TO TV AUDIO MODE AND ANYTHING YOU PLAY THROUGH THE TV WILL PLAY THROUGH YOUR SURROUND SOUND(YOU WILL NEED AN OPTICAL CABLE) YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO HOOK ANYTHING ELSE TO SOUND SYSTEM JUST HOOK EVERYTHING STRAIGHT TO TV

What is the make and model of the universal remote? They each have their own sets of codes, so there's not a code for your DVD that works with all universal remotes.
Post back the make and model info using the "add comment" button, and I'll do my best to look up RCA DVD player codes for it.

I got it under control with a Time Warner remote the code is 10-1-9 or 1 area code and 0-1-9. So just put the remote in auto and cycle thru by pushing the channel buttom on teh TW remote, check yur remote.
