Question about RCA RT2500 System

1 Answer

RE: RCA RT2500 Receiver

I am an owner of an RCA RT2500 Receiver and my unit had been working perfectly until a year ago. I am getting a very light static sound from one side of my speaker (left side). Although - I have sent my receiver in for repair to Radio Shack but they claimed that they had repaired it. Well I tried using my Home theatre system one week ago and I am still having the same problem. Now I just called the local Radio Shack Store (where I had sent it in) and they claimed that it may be my speakers and not my receiver and recommended I get a 9 volt battery to test each speaker (wire). They claimed that if I hear a very light popping sound that the speaker was OK and if I did't hear anything - then I've got problems with my speaker(s). What do you think could be wrong? Thanking you in avance for your suggestions. GS

Take the cable of right speaker(which is ok)and put it instead of the left cable if it is ok-your problem will be in your left speaker or its cable-if it is not working the problem in your receiver output stage.(left channel path problem)

Receiver doesn't play sound until it's warmed up 5 - 10 minutes


Unfortunately, your question has too many variables. Try this. Unplug the unit. Plug it back in. When you first push the power button, you should immediately hear one mechanical click from the unit, followed by a second click with 5-10 seconds. If you don't hear the second click, the unit may have a condition known as DC Offset. It would be unusual to have DC Offset only within the first 5-10 minutes. It's possible that power supply has an issue where both the positive and negative voltages are not coming up at the same time.

You need to confirm if the power switch is working as the button is stuck . So it is best to get this part corrected before we move to the remote as the power switch or the button aligment can be corrected if you open to check the continuity.
Next the remote controller must be checked for the IR outputs. please check this link below for tips to repair or find a link for a universal type remote.

Check all you wire connections to speakers and in the back of the receiver.If one is lose especially behind the amp it will create static noise..Did you move it around recently?It might have pulled a wire.Another thing that could cause that is build up of dust on the circuit board..Blow the inside out with a can of compressed air threw the holes in the side..Also check to make sure that in the wall outlet that you have it plugged into that its the only one there because that will also pick up static noise from the other accessories that you have plugged into it.Hope this helps you and have a great day...

Hold down the power button and unplug the unit. Now release the power button. Plug the unit back into the wall. Now press the button. The system should power up.

Rear speakers not working


Your FM tuner will only generate sound from the front sepakers. CD's, Tape, and I guess mp3 player, as well, will only play through the front speakers.
I've included a link for the manual. The audio on this rig is pretty complex. read through the info, especially pages 11,12,13, and play with the audio controls.

What is the remote conrol code for an RCA A/V Receiver?


If you are looking for a code to program a universal remote, you probably won't find one. Universal remotes are for TV DVD VCR and Cable boxes. A replacement remote might be found at MCMelectronics or Vance Baldwin. I would guess $40-$60

RCA RTD315W Receiver/DVD LED display


If you are referring to the information display, it doesn't activate until you take the system out of standby (the bright blue LED at the corner is shining). When you hit the OFF button (on the system or the remote) and the blue LED shuts off, your info display comes on and says WELCOME.

No Sound


Maybe the speakers are no good. Have you tried hooking up a different set of speakers?
