Question about RCA RT2280 System

1 Answer

I have an RCA RT2280 Home theater system that hasn't worked properly for years. I put the system away in it's box for about 3-4 years and decided to give it a try. To my suprise the tuner was working right out of the box. I turned the unit off and then back on and now it's not working again. The L and R speaker icons are blinking. If I turn the volume up to maximum, I can barely hear music coming out and I have to continuously turn the volume up and down to get continuous music because if I stop changing the volume then it goes silent within a split second. Is this fixable and if so, what do I have to do and is it worth the effort? Thanks.

Could be a bad connection on a voltage regulator. (most likely on a 15v line) And check for a bad capicator (one of the larger ones) 4700uf 16v I think. The cap may have vented or the top may have domed.

It is repairable, Parts and labor around $75-100.

No sound from tv, dvd, cable. Speaker test does work. Sound stopped suddenly when channel was changed.


What does this mean: "when channel was changed"? TV channel?? Would that mean a remote command was issued? How about FM (no external cabling)?

Check speakers no speakers hooked up


If there are no speakers hooked up that is why you are getting the error. Hook up your speakers and the error should go away.

RCA RT2280 surround sound mode button wont select 5.1 dolby digital mode.


I had the same problem and this is what I did to fix it. Assuming that all of your equipment is powered on, (tv, blu-ray/dvd, rca receiver) you'll need to go into your dvd players audio menu and select the dolby digital audio.
Once you do this, the digital signal is sent to your receiver from the dvd. The receiver should automatically set itself to the dolby digital preset. If it doesn't, press the surround button until you reach it. I found part of this information here. And the rest was personal experience.
Also, it depends on if the disc format is in dolby 5.1. I hope this helps you.
