I have an RCA RT 2500, and it was working fine until the power went off yesterday. When the power came back on, the unit was in standby mode, and it would not come on no matter what I tried. I tried the solution posted online (stadium - night - dsp off - club), but it did not work. Please help....

Two thing here.
#one the internal fuse has blown unlikely as the standby light is powered.
Two the power supply unit or switch is faulty.
get some one electrical component with the unit unpluged open the case and check any internal fuses have not blown.
Two check capacities on the power board these are large cylindrical shaped objects. These can dry out and or exploded if faulty relatively cheap to replace.
Second check the power switch actual powers the unit again someone with a multi meter and electrical compertent.
It is probably worth replacing either a capacity or switch anything else may prove false economy
I have replaced power board on other units but to be honest unless the unit was very expensive I would buy new
Given the heat/cold cycles of the storage area along with humidity, I would first suspect poor solder connections. This is not unusual for units of this age. A general overhaul should restore this to operation. This should be a labor only repair unless the output STK is bad. These units are known for having poor connections at the voltage regulators which cause a DC voltage offset triggering the protection circuit. The overhaul should address this as well.
I had the same problem. I held down the power button while plugging the unit into the wall and it fired right up. works fine now. You might have to do this a couple of times but mine was fixed on the first try.
Try resetting the unit. Make sure there is no disc in the unit. With the unit on, go to the front panel and look for the STOP (square) button. Hold it down until the unit shuts off by itself. Turn it back on it shoudl work fine.
Unit is in protect mode there are a few problems that can trigger protect mode the most common is blown channel (shorted outputs). Sometimes one of the 15v regulators may go bad causing imbalance of supplys triggering protect mode. Also sometimes a bad solder connection could cause unit to go into protect also.

Sandworms, that is the exact problem I had after a power out. It doesn't look the same as ducast's problem though. I posted the same solution in another thread. Here's hoping it works for you too.
When the red LED on the power button would glow, but it wouldn't turn on. Try unplugging it and plugging it back in repeatedly and it will eventually turn on. If that doesn't work try moving it to another outlet then try plugging it back in and out.
