RCA 5 disc entertainment system (RTD259) doesn't work

After a little over one month it stopped working. After you plug it up the red light on the power botton is on like it's normal. Hit the power, the dics player makes a noise like it's checking for a disc then it stops. The display never lights up. All you can see is a red light inside by the disc trays. What's the problem

I have a Sony Home Theatre System DAV-DZ370.The audio cd's play fine but DVD discs gets stalled also with some DVD audio discs.DivX seem to work fine.


Hi, I believe I know the problem having attempted to fix no less that a few dozen dvd players with similar problems. I would first try to clean the laser head with a dvd lens cleaner ( the kind with auto play and the little brushes actually on the disc.) Occasionally there may be foreign material partially obstructing the path of the laser beam causing playback for audio but not all dvd's-If that does not work I would say the dvd system has reached near the end of its life cycle ( this can be as little as a yr depending on how many total hours played and the manufacturer.) it can be the laser has gotten a little weak but more often than not the video digital to analogue has over heated just one to many times and is now on the fritz. I have never successfully repaired a dvd player that played music but not movies ( they're too cheap to buy these days to put so much effort into unfortunately-although as I said dirt can't be ruled out-I really had a game console that somehow had a dusty lens.) I hope this was of some use, thank you for choosing FixYa, write back to let us know if this helped or if we can be of further assistance,good luck-Prodzilla

Scanner antenna causing static


Sounds like a bad, loose or dirty connection.
it's possible that there may be a broken soldered joint on the antenna connector.
Open up( power off first) and resolder the joints as they can breakdown over time(dry joint).

DVD drawer won't open and no audio on home theatre system


As far as with dvd and cd players in many devices they usually put a tiny hole under the dvd/cd tray. If you open the door with a precision screwdriver and look beneath the tray for a tiny hole and insert the screwdriver into the hole you will feel a gear, push a little more and this is the "emergency release" the disc should pop right out if it is a tray (not a front loader like ps3!) for the audio i need some more info like connections and what cables are being used, analog or digital. hope this helps you out.

I have a portable dvd player ( model pvs 3377). Worked fine until last night when i tried to play a dvd. When I inserted the disc it said LOADING and after a few seconds stopped and said NO DISC. Can't...


My first solution would be to clean the glass laser eye with cotton swab and rubbing alcohol. If the player is self-fixable, that always works. If the cleaning does not work, than that means the eye motor or timing is off. If it is off, than it is due to a burnt out capacitor on the system board. THIS IS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM IN ALL PLAYERS. They will all eventually do this sometime in it's lifetime. If the cleaning does not work, than it is time to replace it or have it repaired by a qualified electronics repair technician. They will have to test the motor and all capacitor and components to determine the cause of the error

Bush combination DVD/Video problem


Manually cleaning the lens
To locate the laser lens, look around the door or drawer of the DVD player and you will see a small circular disc, which is often called the turntable or disc platter. Right off the edge of the platter you should see a small clear lens. There are some manufacturers that have had problems with the lens, depending on the age of the unit. In these problem players, moving the unit to a different location, turning the unit upside down, or sometimes even without moving the unit, the lens can become detached from the laser assembly and floats around inside the unit. You can re-glue it back with a little crazy glue, BUT it must be perfectly centered, and without getting any glue on it. So, if you don’t see the plastic lens, but instead see the laser pick-up assembly, look around for the lens inside the unit and glue it back on.
To clean the lens you must use very little pressure. Take a cotton swab and barely moisten it with plain, non-scented, or oily type alcohol. In a swirling motion, very gently rub the lens until you’ve covered it entirely. Then repeat using the dry end.
If the cleaning didn’t help, don’t despair just yet. You can see if there’s a problem elsewhere in the unit by using a few simple tricks and tips.
First thing you want to see if the unit’s laser is in good working order. This method isn’t foolproof, but most of the time works admirably. When you insert a disc, see if you can look up underneath where the disc sits on the turntable. Observe the laser lens going up and down. If the lens is trying to focus, that’s good! After a few seconds of the lens trying to focus, the platter should start to spin. On almost every CD/DVD unit I've encountered, the unit won't spin unless the laser has properly focused on the surface of the disc. If the unit spins up and and then shuts down, you should check and make sure the laser pick-up assembly slider mechanism is working without any obstructions and that the small chrome rail that it slides on is slightly greased. Don’t go overboard with the grease though, as too much can cause all sorts of problems.
The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and the manufacturer, consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn’t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There’s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also.
If the disc starts to spin slowly and doesn’t come up to speed, the spindle motor that’s attached to the turntable platter is a common problem. There could also be a problem with the spindle motor driver controller IC or the power supply regulator that supplies voltage to the driver IC. If the disc starts to spin and then spins really fast, or stops and starts to spin backwards, your problem is the laser pick-up assembly or the servo control circuit. If you continue to have problems after cleaning and checking the other things listed above, you may have a problem with the player's alignment. Of course, one of the problems you'll face checking alignments on a DVD/CD player is that you’re going to need to use an oscilloscope on most of them. If you have the proper tools and equipment, the first thing to look at is the RF pattern of the unit while its playing. It should be a sharp and clear pattern. If it's dull and smeared, then the laser could be weak.
Also, in these units are very critical alignments called the focus/tracking gains and offsets. When these alignments are off, it can often cause intermittent troubles. As the unit ages and parts change value, so do these alignments, and will need to be checked. In my time as service technician repairing DVD/CD players, 65% of the laser pick-up assembles I have tested were good and only needed a small adjustment. Today's technology makes it unfeasible for a shop to hook up a DVD/CD player, and even some recorders, to their equipment and make these adjustments because of the cost involved.

hope this may help;

Installing acoustic research ar94 speakers


Appart from the wire clips what type of connectors are there? are they RCA like on a TV?
If you are driving these speakers with an external amplifier then the red and black cable clips are your safest bet.
these connections are designed to carry an amplified signal. Unlike the RCA connections which are normally Line level.

DVD player not working properly


I have a DVD player, a VCR player, a TV set all hook into an RCA RT2250 Audio/Video receiver. Everything was working fine until 2 days ago. Now the DVD player gives me a great pix but no sound. The VCR,and TV are just fine and I have checked everything out, speaker connections, mute buttons, etc. and nothing seems to be wrong. I am thinking that some thing in the receiver got fried. Is it repairable?

RCA Jack snapped off in my surround sound system


These are not necesarily "generic" parts. Because they correspond to the holes in the back, the actual jack part is somewhat unique to the model of the receiver. If you can post htemodel number I'll try to get you the part number. This should not be an exensive part. Figure on $5-$10 or so.

Thanks,
Dan
