RCA rt2770 keeps going back to factory settings while in standby

I've tried talking (through email) to RCA w/o an answer. Will probably call them tomorrow but really don't want to have to send it to them because it's somehow defective. Anyone know why it might be doing this?

By going back to factory settings do you mean when you program radio stations into memory presets, they're erased when you turn the unit on? if that's whats happening, the problem could be with a battery that may be in the unit. alot of electronic devices have a battery inside that should last for years [or forever] that keeps the memory of everything
stored for when the unit is unplugged.this battery [or the unit itself] maybe defective.if you do talk to rca, ask them if there is a battery.maybe the manual even mentions it. you probably can't change it yourself.
good luck.

    I have an old Phillips (by old, I mean bought in Sept. 1989) digital tuner that does not keep the station presets for more than a few days, whether it's plugged in or not. It has been doing that for at least 10 years, although I no longer use it, I still have it. It's still a pretty nice unit though, looks great too. I also still have the amplifier, cassette deck, turn table, and CD player that were bought along with it, as well as the original speakers...even though the surrounds for the subs on the 3-way speakers have deteriorated, and rebuilt using duct tape, they too still work. One thing I love about that CD player, is the insanely quick load has the TOC for the CD loaded in less time that it takes for any modern CD player, you pretty much sit the disc in the drawer, close it, and you don't even really have time to sit the CD case down before the player is ready to play the CD! =D

RT2770 cuts out above a volume setting of 30.

Bass and other settings may be set too high and are overdriving the unit.

If all else fails try the old unplug it for a while and then plug back to see if that helps.

What if anything else is hooked up at the same time to this system?

32 inch rca getting power, but wont turn on

I see so many here with no sound/nopicture issues:


1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have to buyand try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.If set is opened at least look for puffed up and bad caps like in thisphoto.5_29_2012_3_02_02_pm.jpg
left one is good and right one is bad.

Arrows point to bad ones

I've got a vsx-920-k Pioneer receiver with s-11 Pioneer speakers and a s-21w Pioneer subwoofer. All of a sudden my sub stopped working and it seems like it's stuck in standby mode (blue light...

The manual is here...

Flashing Blue is not defined in the manual.

Have you tried changing the Auto Standby switch to ON?

You can prove if the sub amp will respond to a known good input by TURNING ITS VOLUME DOWN tp start and just feeding it ANY RCA output from the receiver while playing, say, FM (to keep it simple). That way you would known in which direction the problem actually lies (internal or external).

Rt2770 home theater receiver rca. Hp In?

Mine does the exact same thing. If I pick up the front end of the unit and slam it down on a hard surface, it then displays HP out and sound comes out!! Freaking retarded. I wish I knew what was wrong with it! I asked RCA and of course they never responded. What a joke!

This is RCA's on line PDF manual for the rt2770. The rear panel has every known hookup plus fiber optics.
I have a Question? does your rt2770 volume numbers go all the way from 0 minimum to 50 maximum, mine only goes to 41 and it does not say maximum?
