Hello, I have an RT 2870 RCA surround sound system. When I turn it on all I hear is static and its not until I crank the volume up to around 25-30 before I can hear the audio. How would I fix this problem?

NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING.

Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control (volume pot??) may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through defect or idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

Audio problem streaming media via ROKU and RCA players. Constantly have to adjust volume to hear them talk, but then the music/sound effects blast you out.


It sounds like you're using a set of stereo speakers to play a surround sound output. I would try going in the TV menu and turning off surround sound

NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING. The errant switch or control that you eventually find and flip will suddenly release the amp's full power and you'll destroy your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume, for all intents and purposes it's not there.

Look for a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

My logitech x240 surround powers on but no sound comes out....what could be the problem??


If you have an extra headset around, plug it into the same place the speakers are plugged into, if it works, your speakers are bad (or check to make sure the power light is on on them and that their volume knob is turned up).
If you still do not get sound, click on your little volume/speaker icon by your clock, then click 'mixer' at the bottom of it (Windows 7 hopefully?). Make sure the different volume controls are turned up because sometimes one low one will affect the entire system.
(If Windows XP, right-click the speaker, then 'Open Volume Control'. Adjust until you hear sound.)

The volume is not working on our Samsung HPT4254 Plasma. We have a RCA surround sound connected to it as well as our cable box.


First check to make sure that the audio isn't "Muted". Second, Go into the user menu and check to make sure that the "Melody or Chime " is turned "on". Third, Turn the volume up half way.Fourth, Turn "off" the set. You should hear a "Down" Melody or chime. Next turn "on" the set. If you did hear the Melody when you turn the set "on" or "off" then the audio system in the set is ok. If you did not hear the Melody then the Main bd needs to be replaced. Have a trained Samsung tech repair your set.

Problem with the volume of the T.V


I have a 50in plasma phillips has a volume problem sometimes you don't get sound and I go to another channel sometimes it works and when it doesn't i turn on my surround sound and never has failed me.I talked to a verizon service man and he has the same problem he thinks it is a issue with the cable boxes on the signal coming in that channel.I would suggest hook the TV up to your own speakers it will sound better.

Speaker problems


You've probably tried this, but when you do the channel test you can turn the volume up or down on whichever speaker is currently being tested (the static). Maybe your speakers have been adjusted somehow.

Hooking up the RT 2600


connect all the devices into the receiver inputs then there should be 1 set of outputs to the tv. This is to play everything using surround sound as all the video and audio is going through your recevier... if you want to do HD and have surround sound you will need a new receiver as this one has no hdmi inputs or outputs.
