Question about RCA Audio Shelf Systems

2 Answers

My RCA RS2622 sound stopped working.

I was extending one of the speakers when I (stupidly) let the bare positive and negative wires touch, while the stereo was turned on and playing. My dad is a electronics wizard and is stumped by this one because the speakers are fine as is everything else about the radio, and even the headphone jack works, but puts out no sound to the speaker jacks. I've researched this a bit and noticed other people have the exact same problem! (not caused by bare wires touching that is) My question would be do you think whatever happened could be repaired at home, a mission for my father, any good ideas for him?... or should i/is it even worth to send it on somewhere to get repaired?

Ive had the same problem with a RCA stereo i use. There areinline fuses in the amplifier section that will blow if something like this happens. If one blows it will make no sound. Replacing these fuses should fix this issue.

I'll need to look up your specific model to be sure, but I believe that the speaker outputs come from an amp pac. The headphones are driven by an opamp IC. The outputs are blown on this. If you can solder, you should be able to repair this. I'll look up the parts required and get back to you.

The sub-woofer amplifier is probably blown. This is a separate circuit from the other channels. It will need to be repaired. It is likely a bad transistor or open resistor that over heated.

I need to make my speakers wires longer for my RCA surround sound

If your speaker have wires that are hooked directly to the speakers and there is no terminal, you will have to splice new wire onto the existing ones. Be carefull and use crimp connectors, available at Radio Shack, these connectors are best because they will keep the speaker wires from touching and damaging your unit.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
If you need further assistance please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.

Thanks for using FixYa

I have just brought a 2nd hand Technics EH 780 but can't get the tweeter to work on the speakers, is it a problem in the set up of the amplifier?

Disconect the speaker(s) from the system. With a 1.5 volt battery touch the negative wire to the - of the battery. And for a short time only, the plus wire to the + of the battery. You should hear a pop! You might need to put your ear to the tweeter to hear it working. if it doesn't make any sound it's not working. Before chasing around for a new tweeter, open the speaker up and apply the test to the tweeter itself. If it now works the crossover part is faulty.
Tweeters are often the first to go when people run the amp at high volumes, so both could have gone!

On the power display it say protected

I'd check the wires. Make sure NO unsheilded positive and negative wires are touching. Make sure that there isn't a speaker where the positive is on one channel and the negative is on the other

It sounds like maybe you have speaker wires touching somewhere. If they are touching it will blow fuses, especially if you turn the volume up to try to hear anything. DO NOT put bigger fuses in to replace the old ones, you will actually do more damage to your system because a higher volt fuse will allow a higher voltage to "spike" in your stereo and might just start frying internal parts.

check wiring going from receiver to speakers.both should have little tabs you push down and slide the correct wire into.make sure enough wire is showing and push tabs down then slide in correct wiring.repeat the same for the back of the receiver.- = negative(black) + = positive(red) is always negative..
