Hi i have an rca rt2250 home theater reciever and i dont know what i need to do in order to use my optical and coaxial imputs. i just got a new tv with these hook ups but there is no button on the reciever to switch to these modes. how do i do this.
When it's powered up and DVD is selected push the demo button (possibly multiple times)and it should show you analog (most likely) then turn the dial that is around the demo button the change to coaxial then optical. These selections are only available for DVD, CD, and SAT.

Yes this can be done. You have several options for audio hookup. Stereo 2-channel (white and red) RCA cables, digital audio (optical or coaxial) or HDMI. Your home theater must have the inputs available such as optical, coaxial etc. Typically the stereo 2-channel RCA is the simple way. Just connect from the Bluray audio outputs to the Home theater inputs (white and red) for stereo sound. Select the input on the home theater. For Dolby Digital 5.1 use optical digital audio cable (black port) or coaxial (orange RCA port) from Bluray to similar home theater input.
please give us more details, I don't know what reciever you want to use? AM,FM? or some other devices.
but if it's the am,fm reciever well you can find it in your instructions manual how to set it though.
just follow the steps and you will have it..
have a nice tunning
just don't rate me badly^^
make sure your antenna is connected properly..
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.
Like above, use an optical connection (need fiber optic cable) or a coaxial connection (single RCA cable). HDMI might also work, but I personally haven't checked. Connect the audio outs from the cable box to the audio ins on the home theater. The TV will only need a video connection from the cable box, as well as one from the home theater (for DVDs, onscreen menus).
when it is playing a cd? well I guess your optical lens has a problem.. adjusting the variable resistor at the side of the optical lens (you can find the optical lens inside your unit where the cd/dvd is playing)..
if your using for radio? bad solder is the main problem, and a capacitor is almost going to blow( but it won't blow if it was installed properly). changing it is the best way.
Sounds like your right side output is shot. And yes it can be fixed, but the cost factor would be higher than what you paid for the set itself. First see if your inputs are working correctly, this also could be your problem. Check all your connections.
Run a regular RCA type audio cable from your TV audio out to your Home Theatre audio in. That is what I have done recently with my Samsung LCD and Home Theater. You then have to put your Home Theater on Aux 1 or Aux 2 to get the sound from TV. Ensure your TV's volume is off.
