I did it. I decided to go ahead with the repair myself. I have never done something like this before but it was easier than I thought. I filed off the old parts and soldered on the new. It works like a charm. Thanks.

Buzzing sound coming from all speakers


Can't say for sure (not a lot to go off of) but whenever i hear a buzzing sound from my speakers, its because of a poor connection (broken/exposed/bent) of the audio cables (whether its the red/white, or headphone jack (computers)).

HTS3450 - Replaced Capacitors now have sound back but is very low


The new capacitors have a lot more value than the factory ones. Because of the higher value the amplifier will have to give it all it's got and mostlikely not live for too long (see first comment).
Replace the replaced capacitors with ones of the correct value and your problem is solved. You can use ones with a slightly higher vlaue (20v iso 16v) but it will also produce less louder sound.

6800uf/16v Capacitor?


You can use a higher voltage capacitors without problems its the value of uf that should remain the same. But sometimes you can use a higher uf like a 330uf can be replaced with 470uf but never go lower than the original value on uf and voltage. But you can safely use 6800uf 25v or 35v.

RCA RT2500 NO SOUND


Similar problem here, at first 20-30 min warm-up time, followed by irregularity in sound levels, to a complete failure after using for around 30 minutes after warm up (choppy sound to a steady buzz). I wonder if over heating has something to do with it since I left it on all the time after the need of a warm-up occurred. One night, a horrid buzz came from the system and ever since it would become unbearable to listen too after a few minutes, I am debating either to attempt a fix or chunk it. I haven't tried the caps and fuses yet, but seeing your problem leads me to believe it is something more to the problem, and more likely a better investment would be an upgrade.

I'd suspect your power supply capacitors are on their last leg. replace them.  - This was posted by videoguy1742. :   this problem is CURED simply by replacing 2 capacitors inside on the main board. They are easily identified by a bulge on the top end of the capacitors. The capacitors are located between the heat sinks. The size is 6800uf/16v.
I am a RadioShack dealer and sold a few of these in 2000/2001. I bought one for myself. I have repaired only 2 that had the same problem as listed by HAGUC above. They both are working great and for the record. . .are NOT peices of JUNK,. . .hehe. . .they just need a little TLC. Parts available from larger electronics parts houses, not at RadioShack

Rt2250 rt2500 speaker static noise hum buzz until fully warmed up


It sounds like a capacitor in the power supply is just about to die. With the power disconnected have a look at the large tin can looking gizmos near the power transformer. There could be a couple of them. Leave the unit switched off for a while before going near them they could still pack a splat. Replace them with the same value and make sure they're connected the right way and it should solve your problem. Whilst in there have a good look for any other smaller capacitors which look as if they're getting rounded at the top. Replace them too. Either that or dig deep and buy a new one.
