Question about RCA RS2600 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Sound went out

Was listening to it, turned it off when we left, came home, turned it on and there was no sound. Nothing at all, not even a crackle, speakers are silent. Everything else seems to be working, though with no sound, kind of hard to be certain.

    Thank you both.

    No. No headphones. I've done some dumb things in my life, but not that one. :)

    "defective audio output IC"

    IC? Is "IC" a simple fix? Or is that a 'toss it out, buy a new stereo' fix?

    No, I wasn't. I never used headphones with this stereo.

If your head phone is connected to your system there will be no out put to the speakers. Please remove the head phone and try. If this does not solve your problem then there is a possibility of defective audio output IC.

    Hi, Elara,

    Next best thing is to check fuse which gives supply to audio output stage. if the fuse is blown,replace it having same value. Still not working please take it to service lab.


  • Elara Jul 12, 2012

    Tried a new fuse, it blew. Bought another one, it also blew.
    Up until this happened, the stereo/speakers had worked perfectly for 3 years.
    Still have the stereo, hate to toss it when it was a really good system... well, until this happened.

Sony stacking system LBTd505, the sound from the record deck suddenly went very faint. The cd and radio sections are fine. I have tried a new stylus, but no difference. Any ideas?

You have two options. First a faulty cartridge. Or a faulty pre-amp in the main amp.
You can find out if the cartridge (and amp) are playing up. By removing the connectors on the cartridge.
Then with the volume turned up to about half, with your finger, touch each one of the wires one at a time. It will not harm you at all. But you should hear a loud buzz on one wire on the right and a loud buzz on the left on another wire.
The two other wires will either produce a crackle, or a tiny buzz, or nothing at all.
If you do hear a loud buzz on two wires. The cartridge is faulty and needs replacing.
If you hear a slight buzz on them or weak sound. There is either a bad connection between the deck and amp. Or the pre-amp inside the deck which is only used by the record deck so will not effect any other function, is faulty.
You can remove the record deck connections to the amp and again with the amp on half full, touch the inputs with your finger. If you are not hearing a loud hum or buzz, the pre-amp is faulty. If you do the connectors are faulty.

My jvc UX-D66 B micro system sound is very distorted and crackles when listening to music I checked the wires and they are fine it is the same through aux what could be the problem any advice please

You may have blown the speakers by playing too loud. Try listening with a pair of quality headphones. If the sound is clear through them - then the speakers are most likely the problem.

Repair philips wacs700

It sounds like a part probably an IC or Transistor that has become sensitive to heat and when it gets warm it acts up. Returning to normal when switched off. The only way to find out is to spray any suspect part with Servisol Freezer spray. You have to do this to one at a time to any part and wait while it acts up. If the freezer spray stops the crackling you have found the faulty part.

I have a JVC MX-GT80 there is a problem with it, it turns on just fine but does not give sound, plays cds and everything the only problem is no sound when this happened there was sound then i heard a pop...

It looks like you've either blown the speakers of the amplifier itself. What were you doing when you got the pop and the sound stopped? (Playing CD or from External Source and at what volume level?)

If there is no sound at all from the speakers, not even a crackle or buzz then it's more than likely you've blown the amplifier.

You could narrow the fault by trying these speakers on another unit or another set of speakers on this unit.

If you require further assistance then please ask.

Speakers crackle, then sporadically stop

Sounds like an amplifer fault. Many of these Midi system use a large black IC attached to a metal heatsink. They control both the power amp and pre amp on both channels. When they go wrong they can cause all sorts of effects,
If you can repair things I would look at that. If not get ready for a large bill. If it's the IC some are expensive, it does most of the work!

SoundDock produces only harsh crackling sound

Yeah i had that same problem. You know the chord? The cord you plug in from outlet. The square cord you plug into your speakers.. yeah the "DC outlet" is supposed to be UP. if you have it the wrong way in there it wont work and will make a crackling sound.

Speakers are making a crackling sound then cut out.

Sounds like an internal loose connection somewhere, possibly anywhere, a connector on a pcb, a dry solder, loose pin on an IC. Tough for an end user to solve this, would entail opening the unit and investigating. I checked the rear panel in the op manual and this model has no ribbon connectors else i'd have asked you to check them.
