Question about RCA RT2500 System

1 Answer

6800uf/16v Capacitor? To fix the sound issue in the RCA RT2500 System, if I replace the capacitor with the same size and volt (6800uf/16v) will the same thing happen again with the system? Should I use a 6800uf capacitor with a little more volts, say a 25v or 35v?

You can use a higher voltage capacitors without problems its the value of uf that should remain the same. But sometimes you can use a higher uf like a 330uf can be replaced with 470uf but never go lower than the original value on uf and voltage. But you can safely use 6800uf 25v or 35v.

Model RT2500/ RT 2500R. Standby button is lit but when I press it the home theater fails to turn on


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.

My model is the RT2500

I did it. I decided to go ahead with the repair myself. I have never done something like this before but it was easier than I thought. I filed off the old parts and soldered on the new. It works like a charm. Thanks.

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

I'd suspect your power supply capacitors are on their last leg. replace them.  - This was posted by videoguy1742. :   this problem is CURED simply by replacing 2 capacitors inside on the main board. They are easily identified by a bulge on the top end of the capacitors. The capacitors are located between the heat sinks. The size is 6800uf/16v.
I am a RadioShack dealer and sold a few of these in 2000/2001. I bought one for myself. I have repaired only 2 that had the same problem as listed by HAGUC above. They both are working great and for the record. . .are NOT peices of JUNK,. . .hehe. . .they just need a little TLC. Parts available from larger electronics parts houses, not at RadioShack

It sounds like a capacitor in the power supply is just about to die. With the power disconnected have a look at the large tin can looking gizmos near the power transformer. There could be a couple of them. Leave the unit switched off for a while before going near them they could still pack a splat. Replace them with the same value and make sure they're connected the right way and it should solve your problem. Whilst in there have a good look for any other smaller capacitors which look as if they're getting rounded at the top. Replace them too. Either that or dig deep and buy a new one.
