How to hook an ipod to a rs2640

This one is fairly easy for you! Go to Radio Shack or similar place and get a cable that has an !/8" (3.5m? they may call it) Male, (which is what your I-Pod should use, double check this when you go look at them...some I-Pods use 3/32"), then at the other end you need what they call RCA ends....plug the RCA's into the front AUX IN jacks, plug the other into your I-Pod, set your stereo to AUX and enjoy!

Take the back off and check the fuse for continuity with a volt meter,volt meter should be on the ohms setting with sound,if the fuse is good you will hear the meter continuously beep,if the fuse is bad you will hear nothing at all,also if the fuse looks burnt then replace the fuse,no need to check it with the meter,good luck

I can not hear anything accept for buzzing on the spaekers wether I am trying to play radio, tape, cd or nothing at all.

Hello Sir, hi, the buzzing sound is a sign of an amplifier IC failure, this IC amp needs to be replaced. (this requires finding the spare part and soldering and desoldering that part, so a tech person is needed) have it serviced by an electronics tech guy.

I have a rca rs2640 stereo system. The display, cd player, tape player, radio, and headphone jack all work. But when a cd, tape, or radio is playing, the speakers do not make any sounds. I know it is...

It sounds like maybe you have speaker wires touching somewhere. If they are touching it will blow fuses, especially if you turn the volume up to try to hear anything. DO NOT put bigger fuses in to replace the old ones, you will actually do more damage to your system because a higher volt fuse will allow a higher voltage to "spike" in your stereo and might just start frying internal parts.

Just up and quit

To get the cd's out, remove the screws on the side and rear that hold the top portion on (might have to take side panels all the way off to access screws under the top edge...). Lift lid and Ta-Da!! CD's.
