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

I have a RCA RT2250 and I have a green light on a circuit board

Check the solder connections on the seven voltage regulators found in the center of the receiver on the heat sink from front to back (not the amp board) they are on the main board. The green light on the DSP board (back right side) is an error light. You can reset the receiver by pushing power then stadium then night then dsp off then club after unplugging the receiver and plugging it back in.

Hope this helps,

RCA RT2250 consistant shutting off in Satalite mode.

Mine will always just turn off every minute or so after a hard shut down(ex: power outtage). I have to turn it back on and then hold the set button for a few seconds, then it stays on, until i turn it off manually, since the remote won't turn it off.

Surround reciever wont turn on

The fuse itself should have the rating scribed into one of the metal portions, usually displayed as 250/5 format (250v 5amp in this example).
