20 Most Recent RCA RS2531 CD Shelf System Questions & Answers


I have a similar stereo system and accidentally put two CD's in one tray and it got stuck and could not open. What I did was unplug everything from the unit and took off the side panel. After some careful fiddling I got it to open. You could try something like that.

Start by disconnecting the speakers, turn the volume to minimum, and see if the unit still shuts down. You might have a shorted speaker or wire. If the trouble continues, either the amplifier integrated circuit has gone bad, or some other component failure is activating the shutdown. I can't suggest any specific parts you might check because many things can cause the same symptoms. You'll need to have the unit looked at by a commercial servicer.

mine did the same...with mine it was because one of the cd's came out of the carriage inside the unit... i popped of the see-through top on the unit, put the cd's properly in the carriage and it opened right away... it may say "error" on the front screen

Yea try plugging it into another wall socket, if it's still humming could be a damaged transformer. or bad capacitor.

I love the form of your question, as I wanted to wing the sucker myself, but got online before I actually pulled an Office Space on it. I found nothing, but I DID actually figure it out. Not super intuitive though. To set the time: Hold down the memory key in the middle until the number flashes. Use the arrow up/down on the right to set hour. Press Memory key again, repeat with arrow keys to set minutes. Hit memory key again. Alarm: Press/hold the Alarm button until the Alarm 1 or 2 flashes and press the side you want, 1 or 2, to set. Arrow time up/down, then do minutes, press alarm 1 again, select alarm or tuner, press alarm 1 again. Now I need to see if it will work in the morning. I know the flipping time is set though! Good luck. If you wing it, please post photos! :D

This could be a lot of things. IT could be a switch connection or a chip that has failed, could be a solder connection that is bad. Without proper equipment to send a signal into the unit and trace it, you may not be able to find the problem.

You did not list the model numbers of either item but I can tell you that the new televisions use HDMI to send and receive audio. With that in mind, there is no way to do what you want to do unless you buy a converter like this one: https://www.amazon.com/AGPtek-SPDIF-Extractor-Converter-output/dp/B00ECTHIKK

Slide the switch Lock/Wake/Clock on the top of the unit to clock position. Press REV or FWD to set the clock time. The time decrements or increments will follow by a faster rate when you press and hold the buttons. The ":" between hour and minute time flashes when you are setting the time.

I bought a new universal remote because my RCA Home Theater remote went bad,
took a few hours to figure out that I had to use the Audio remote code on the list.
I have RCA RCRN06GR Blu-Ray Home Theater. The audio codes that came
with my new remote are 41609, 41254, 41390, 41511, 42041. I believe it was 41254 but try them all if it doesnt work.

PCM mode is a digital audio file that should be sent to the soundbar via an optical or coaxial digital audio cable. The coaxial digital audio cable uses an RCA plug but not the L/R stereo channels of analog audio. The aux input is usually the 3.5 MM cable from a computer, CD or MP3 player or a cell phone or tablet.

First, which type of RCA cable is connected between the sound bar and the TV? Second, are you sure that the TV connection is an audio out? (A number of recent TVs have only one audio output. This means there is only the optical audio out and not even a headphone jack.)

Once you double-check the input at the sound bar, choose the Line In input if you are using the stereo RCA cable. If you are using the Optical input, select that input. Use either the Mode button or the specific input button on the remote. Then double-check that the TV is set for the appropriate audio out.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model of the TV and the sound bar for further information. I looked at the ONB18SB001 documentation for some of this. The manual for this Onn soundbar is available at Manuals Lib. See https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1498038/Onn-Onb18sb001.html?page=12#manual for the list of input modes and the input to which they correspond. Here is the image of the inputs on the back of the ONB18SB001: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1498038/Onn-Onb18sb001.html?page=7#manual .
