Question about RCA RT2500 System

1 Answer

RT2250 turns itself off

My receiver will just shut off after being on for awhile and usually if the unit is turned up to 50 or somewhere around there. Everytime you turn it back on, it will jus turn itself back off. It only turns back on for ahwile if you let it rest for a couple of hours. Is this an overheating issue? If so how can you install a cooling fan in the unit.

Are you trying to run this unit at 50% or more? I can understand this problem if that's the case. Just turn it down. If you need more "grunt", it's time for more power amping...accordianman

    It's not a heat problem so much as a voltage bias problem. A fan won't really help a power supply deficiency...accordianman

My Yamaha RX-A1010 turns on and shuts off by itself on occasion. It also randomly switches between inputs by itself.


Your receiver may be detecting random signals from some other source. Infrared is pretty much line of sight but RF can come from anywhere.

I have this issue, my teac ag d7900 which itself off to standby and when I switch it "on" again, it says protect and shut itself down again


Right. This means that either you have a short in your speaker cable somewhere or the short-detector circuitry inside has problems. Disconnect all speaker cables and turn the receiver on. If the symptom goes away, turn the receiver off again and connect one of the speaker wires. Repeat until it starts to go into protect again. When it does, the last speaker you hooked up has a short somewhere in the wire.
If protect always comes on, you'll need to get the unit serviced.

Turned itself off. I turned it back on and the green power light blinks for awhile then blinks red for awhile.no picture or sound


Get rid of this TV. Had one and replaced the bulb and light engine many times. Just buy a Samsung or Vizio 50+ inch instead and be very happy. Those Panasonic projection TV's were terrible. You will find a 50 inch Vizio for around $500 bucks and it will blow your mind how great the picture looks.

Everytime my central air unit kicks on my circuit breaker trips. It didn't do this last year or even earlier this year


A circuit breaker 'tripping' everytime the AC unit kicks on 'most always' indicates a direct short (somewhere in the condensing unit), although it is possible that the breaker itself is bad - (but not likely).

Usually the cause of this 'short' will be - either the condenser motor in the condensing unit (outside unit) or the compressor - also in the condensing unit.

If you're mechanically inclined - and "very careful" around electricity - there is a fairly simple way to find out which component is causing the short.

Step 1 - Make sure the condensing unit (outside unit) is completely disconnected (electrically) , i.e. pull the fuses/turn off circuit breaker on outside unit and turn off thermostat.

Step 2 - disconnect the condenser motor (this is the outside fan motor). Note: when you disconnect the wires of the condenser motor "be sure" you mark/write their location, and wrap them in electric tape.

Step 3 - start the AC unit. If the breaker trips again you can pretty much rest assured it's the compressor that is shorted.

To prove it (without a doubt) - go to next step.

Step 4 - "be sure circuit breaker and thermostat is turned off" - and - 'reconnect' the condenser motor - and - then disconnect the compressor wires (mark wires and tape them).

Step 5 - Start AC.

If breaker doesn't trip - you know it's the compressor that is shorted.

If breaker 'does' trip again - then it's possible the breaker itself is bad (not likely) or there is a 'short' in the condensing unit's "wiring" somewhere (not likely).

My guess is that either the condenser motor or compressor is shorted.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck!

The tv shuts off by itself. I will turn it on..and after awhile, it just turns off by itself, and then after about a minute I can turn it on again and watch tv for awhile, and then it will do it again.


It seems that your unit has some sort of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur. The faulty component(s) are heating up, tripping the fault control, and shutting down, it cools down again,and will restart, then the process repeats, it will eventually fail fully.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done. It is that sound that gives it away, this is a typical switchmode Power Supply problem.

Pioneer VSX-D509S keeps shutting off


Aside from any intrinsic problem with your receiver, the usual suspects are;
1) Poor receiver ventilation. 2) Very high levels of bass. 3) Shorts in the speaker wiring. 4) A rubbing loudspeaker voice coil.

My receiver turns off and it won't turn on for awhile then turns off again. It could stay on for 2 or 3 hours then it shuts off


Make sure none of your speaker connections are touching also you may want to clean out the receiver. Also how old is the unit and did you buy it new?
Thank you,
