Question about RCA Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

DTA800 do not receive UHF

We purchased the RCA DTA800 from Wal-Mart for $49.87 for my mother-in-law. She live in the Lake of the Woods county in northern Minnesota and receives 3 UHF channels (59, 61, 63). I tried to hook up the unit since she has a anolog TV and it states it could not find a signal and I could not install the unit. Do we need a different unit to receive UHF channels or what may be the problem? We receive the channels normally just find with the antenna she currently has.

I am not from that part of the country, so I can't say for sure, but check the following:

1) Are the UHF channels local and small stations? If so and under a certain power level, they are not required to broadcast in digital. THere may not be digital UHF channels local to you.

2) The changeover is required by law to occur by Feb 2009. Not all stations have made the change yet. You could still be in an area where the stations have not yet converted to digital broadcasts.

Make a few calls to find out which category yuo fall under above. If you don't fall into either of the above, update this and we'll look elsewhere for the problem.

Just purchased the RT2911 this afternoon at a local Wal Mart.. Got it home, out of the box, on a shelf, distributed the speakers accordingly, plugged the unit in. I powered on the receiver and immediately...


Did you try reversing the speaker cables in the back of the unit? I mean making sure the ground wire ( the wire with a black stripe on it ) is in the right connector.

I have ABSOLUTELY NO SOUND out of my RCA RS2625, I have checked the wiring & all(the speakers wrkd well in the living room on the SHARP stereo when I tested them). Everything is displaying correctly...


Since you all ready tested the wiring and speakers, one or more audio output ic packs have shorted and will need to be replaced, you will need a technician to check the extent of repairs that will be required and I suggest an estimate.

How can I connect it to the "Front Games and mp3 Inputs


Leah, if you go to wal-mart, you can buy an adapter cord that will plug into the headphone jack of your mp3 player and then plug into your stereo to play your mp3's through it. It looks like a headphone jack on both ends. Cost is approx 3-5 dollars.

CD Player will not play, just moved the tray in, then out and stops.


Take off the metal cabinet cover, then find the lens on the exchanger and blow it off with some compressed air. If it still won't work, then try a different disc (commercially made, like from Wal-Mart) because the disc might be unreadable

Stereo won't read cds


You might try running a cleaning CD in it (which cleans the lazer lens). These are available from Wal Mart and many other sources. If a cleaning doesn't get it going, then you may have a lazer that is weakening and might need to be replaced (sorry!). Hope just a good lens cleaning will do the trick.
