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.

SOURCE: I Need the five digit remote code for a RCA RTD215

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.

Perhaps the Direct TV box menus would shed some light on why it's sending PCM stereo instead of Dolby Digital 5.1.

    RCA RTD3131 5 diget code for direct tv remote. i have tryed all that they have on the website, both for the dvd, and the audio sound system. none work

    None will. Logitech makes the Harmony remote. It will control all your audio components and never goes obsolete because it programs from their website at start up and whenever you add or change a component. It may seem pricey but you'll never have to buy another remote.

    RCA tv need the remote codes all of them in one answer

    Four digit universal remote codes for RCA TV are:
    0031 0004 0048 0054 0094 0100 0102 0107 0129 0191 0005 0009 0000 0162 0163 0342 0003 0015 0022 0096 0113 0125 0179 0187 0188
    Three digit codes are:
    000/ 003/ 004/ 005/ 007/ 009/ 011/ 048/ 078/ 082/ 083/ 094/ 096/ 098/ 099/ 101/ 102/ 103/ 107/ 113/ 129/ 133/ 167/ 179/ 181/ 187/ 188/ 194
    Direct Code Entry
    1. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
    2. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
    3. Enter the 4 digit code from the code tables. Note: after a valid code entry, the red indicator turns off. For an invalid code, the red indicator flashes.
    4. With your device on, press CHANNEL UP. If the device responds, no further programming is required. Note: If some buttons do not operate your device, try one of the other codes for your brand.
    Code Search method

    If after trying "Direct Code Entry" your device does not respond, or if your brand is not listed, try doing a search of the code library for your code by following these steps.
    1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
    2. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
    3. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks once, then stays on.
    4. Press the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
    5. Press and release MUTE to install the code. The indicator light goes off.
    Most users will want to store VCR codes under the VCR button, Cable codes under CBL, etc. If you want to store a VCR code under CBL, etc., first follow the procedure for Direct Code Entry and press CBL in step 2 of Direct Code Entry, then enter ANY VCR code in step 3 of Direct Code Entry. Then follow the steps above for Code Search

    No sound from tv, dvd, cable. Speaker test does work. Sound stopped suddenly when channel was changed.

    What does this mean: "when channel was changed"? TV channel?? Would that mean a remote command was issued? How about FM (no external cabling)?

    You can check your dvd player for a coaxial or an optical sound output, then you can plug it directly to your receiver. Those two are the best options after HDMI. Another option is A/V RCA type cable, you´ll need 3 stereo A/V wires, in order to connect the 6 channels. Remember to uncheck the HDMI sound output option on the DVD menu.
