RCA Audio Players & Recorders - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
How come I don't get any sound from my RCA rt2500 audio receiver?
I've owned this receiver since the Summer 2001 and it worked well until the audio became intermittent several years later. Eventually, the unit was ON but all sound was dead. It turns out that there are solder joints that developed tiny solder breaks. These were found in the main power board on the large electrolytic capacitors and on the 7 power tab transistors that share a large square heat sink. Thermal cycling can cause microscopic solder joint breaks over years of use. After I re-soldered the broken joints the unit worked properly and is still in use in 2017. Consult a qualified electronics repair technician for the repair, which can be accessed via the removable panel on the bottom of the cabinet. Of course, be sure the unit is unplugged from AC power before starting your inspection and repair.
