Question about RCA RT2600 System

1 Answer


At first when selecting 'source up/down' buttons on the unit it may display 'mute' sometimes as if i had pressed the mute button.

now after turns on gives video from my dvd player then after 15sec a loud humm comes from all speakers...even if the volume is down to zero....this lasts 3secs then a louder 'bang' is heard like if someone dropped a the same time as the bang, the screan displays 'OVERLOAD' and the unit shuts off (i.e. standby).

this happens no matter what source is on , vcr analog, dvd, digital, etc.,
this happens if no speakers are connected or not connected
this happens if dvd, vcr, etc, is connected or not connected

will admit perhaps a lot of dust inside unit.....unit was working perfectly (i.e. sound and video) before.

one night it was left on all night with my dvd off....i turned of the rt2600 in the morning,....this was the last time i remember it working before the 'OVERLOAD;' problem.

Operator error. Mis-set switch somewhere Use a medium or low volume level until you find it.

Have you followed the manual used the Test Tones to set it up? How did it sound at that time?

Have you and evaluated every indicator on the front to understand what they mean in the context of source selection?

RCA RT2600 sound problems

You should first try unplugging it for 30 minutes and that should reset it and has fixed the problem on other ones before.

Also, do the speakers hum at all or is it dead silence?

Thank you for further comments to my question.

Have a Good Day.

Multiple Video Sources hooked to RT2600, but only DVD shows

I own the RCA RT2600 Home Theater System. I have never set it up, it has never been used. I have someone who wants to buy just the receiver and nothing else. I am wondering what you paid for just the receiver? I don't want to break up the system but I need money right now. I am open to suggestions as to what to do and how much to sell them for.
