No power-up on Sr-16!!!

Hey, i've had an old sr16 for about 10 years. About 6 months ago, upon trying to power it up, I got nothing! I have no idea why this would be occurring, but I should mention that I'm not much of a tech guy. Any ideas?

    Did you get a solution for this? Mine on for 0.5 a second and shuts
    off, but if you tilt it you can see that the LCD screen is very dimly
    lit. VR1 gets a bit hot, but I'm thinking that's normal for a
    non-sunken VR. Help?

Hi,in the manual it explains somewhere how to reset the unit. I think you hold down the play button and the erase button at the same time while powering up the unit.

The battery is available from your local lowes walmart and is easy to change. However! Did you back up your machine to tape? You'll loose anything you programmed in with a battery change and possibly pre canned patterns.

How do i transfer patterns from one sr-16 to another?

There are two ways. 1st way is to use the tape out and a 1/8 to 1/8 cable connected to a tape recorder or computer. And use the send thru tape function. while recording. then on the second one reverse the cable. And use the tape in function. The 2nd way is to copy beat for beat in the quantize mode by hand onto paper, the reprogram each sound(beat) back into it.

I have an RCA Home Theater System RTD315WR, the blue standbye light is on, when i push any button the blue light turns off. Nothing is working on it. Ive tried unplugging it and plugging it back it....

I purchased the RCA Home Theater System RTD315WR less than a year ago. Just a little over a month ago, the door would not open leaving my DVD still stuck inside. Upon many attempts trying to retrieve my DVD NOTHING HAPPENS. As a matter of fact, the standbye light comes on, and when I push the button the light tunrs off completely and NOTHING happens. Since I no longer have my receipt or box, Wal-Mart would not exchange it. I am in the process of writing a letter to Wal-Mart Headquarters in hopes they will assist me in this matter.

Cut and pasted info to replace the internal memory battery:

There is a battery inside the unit which is used to retain settings and beats that you program into it. This battery should probably last about ten years or so. If your SR-16 will not remember things anymore, it may need a new battery. Alesis can replace it for you, but this may cost $50.00 or so plus the cost and trouble of shipping. Anyone who can use a soldering iron can replace the battery. To disassemble the SR-16, remove the six screws on the bottom. There is a ribbon cable that connects the top and bottom together. This should be unplugged from the bottom part (main circuit board). The pins on the connector are very fragile, so pry it up carefully with a screwdriver. Also the volume knob has to come off. To remove the circuit board, just unscrew the nuts on the six phone jacks on the back. The battery is a coin-shaped 3-volt lithium battery. The one in mine is a Panasonic BR2325. If you buy a replacment battery, you will need to get one that has PCB terminals on it so it can be soldered. I THINK this is Panasonic part number BR2325-1HB (theres lots of different types of connectors on these). You will not find this at Walmart. It will need to be ordered from an electronics supply place. Digikey has them for $2.00. I think you can get one from Alesis for 15 or 20 dollars.

Samsung htz510 wont read dvd or cd? It just says loading for ever and then says error???

I have the same issue, along with a Rear Check issue at power up, and the fan stopped working about a month ago, so three strikes and your out, I would not recommend this product due to the quality. My Oniko was purchased years ago and is still going strong, I moved to an apartment and wanted the wireless ease with the back speakers, never again with this brand. My Samsung LCD is acting up now too, it is only 15 months old, and won't power up right away takes like 5 attempts, unreal

If this clears thing turn off the LS 48 and connect the peripheral one at a time testing with each new connection. Happy hunting.

DVD player is "LOCKED"

Well, at least the child-lockout works, right?
I have a similar Pan. HT system and I suspect you will have to go through the main menu and look for settings regarding 'tamper-proofing' to prevent just such 16 month-olds from inserting their jelly bread into the DVD player.
Your system may differ from ours but you should be able to find that feature in your user manual.
If the manual is gone, you might want to try this page:

Your system is not listed directly but there are several from that series and they may share features.
Downloading of the manuals costs nothing.

Good luck-

RCA RTD258 Not working

Do you have a DVD in the player? If an incompatible region code disc was left in the player upon shutdown, it will cause your particular system to lockup. Your unit has a 1 year warranty, and you can easily obtain over the phone help from RCA by calling 580-634-0366 and have your unit?s date of purchase and model/serial number ready. The model/serial number information is on the back of your unit. During your phone call the Technician will determine if you should receive a replacement unit, and if so, will provide you all of the relavent information and a Service Request Number for your tracking convenience. Keep this SR# permanently so you can cite your history should future problems arise, also, a helpful tip is should you utilize a Passcode for your system and forget it, the Master Passcode is 9688.

Need help fixing

I had the same problem a couple years ago with mine. After letting it set for several months, I tried to plug it in again after moving into another house. All of a sudden, it started working again. That was 1 year ago, but just last did it again. I noticed that it does this if it is left on for an extended amount of time (my wife goes to bed at night and leaves it on). I cannot find anything on how to fix it, and no warranty assistance from RCA. I'm purchasing a Sony today, but will hold onto the RCA in case it decides to work again.
