Question about RCA RT2280 System

1 Answer

Sound (Audio) Drops Out

For about the last six months our RT 2280 system has experienced an unexplained, but growing problem with audio drop out. The system will be playing correctly using either directv tv, VCR or DVD and the sound will suddenly drop out (go silent), while the video continues. At first it occurred no more than once a day, but now it occurs regularly three to four times an hour. Ideas?

This unit is shutting down the outputs probably due to heat. There are thermal detection transistors inside that will shut off the output amp section if it gets too hot. There can be a number of reasons for this. Check the speaker wires to be sure that they are not frayed at all and that none of the strands are touching. Other than that there may be defective parts inside that are sensitive to heat.

I set the volume to 40. After a little while the volume starts dropping down. If you do not turn the volume back up the volume will eventually go to zero all by it self and turn off the system.

My tv keeps losing sound why?


Check whether the audio is muted by accidental press at remote control button. Enter its sound menu, and check it. If muted, as you know there will be no audio output. If not muted, check the speaker/s. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

Sounds like a couple of coincidental but unrelated symptoms.

Optical cables need precise seating and no tight bends.

Muffled, channel-specific sound is usually on the analog end. Speaker connections maybe.

RCA 2280 Optical Input w/PS3


The only optical option is through the satalite function. After I hooked up my xbox 360 with optical audio, I pushed the SAT button on the front of the RCA receiver then turned the multi jog wheel until it read "optical" out came surround sound. I hope this helps you.

I have picture and no sound


Try unplugging it for a minute. You will have to go through setup again (most likely).
Some of these sets have a (software?) issue and the audio drops out maybe once or twice a year-at least that's what I've experienced. No real fix for it.
