Question about RCA RS2521 Shelf System

Open Question

Sound way off when I hooked the speakers up again

I needed to move the speakers, so I disconnected them from the stereo unit. Must have reconnected something in the wrong place; sound currently has way too much bass (Bass Boost is off), little treble, and the volume is very low. I adjusted the sound settings the Custom Equalizer and the problem remained. Any ideas on how to reconnect the speakers so the sound is more on target?

SOURCE: I have a RCA brand

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.

SOURCE: Full sound not working

I had the same problem and also traced it back to two of the four 7-amp fuses were blown. I replaced the fuses, but they immediately blew again. I used higher capacity fuses (10 amp) to see how bad the problem was and those blew. Testing the problem a third time with the speakers disconnected yielded the same results.
There's an internal short in the system.
The solution? Don't buy RCA again.

I have a aiwa CDC x227 car stereo. Have it hooked up, had sound until I accidentally hit the face plate button. Since then I have no sound. Any suggestions on how to get the sound back?

hi, you may have caused an upset to the data flow from face to main pc board. try disconnecting the unit from the vehicle for a day, then reconnect it the next day. or find the reset procedure for your unit, it will either be a small micoswitch behind the face, or a sequence of holding down some switches to activate the reset function. if the problem persists then the unit mite have a cracked main pc board, a faulty face unit, or the mute function is continuously running. to solve these faults you will have to consult with a technician.

Sound gone on Technika lcd19 907 tv

Hook up for sound is to where on the set?

If using a box for signal is the sound turned down on it?

Is there a physical switch on the rear marked internal/external speakers?

In the set's audio menu or setup are the speakers switched off?

Something happened when you unhooked, moved and hooked up again.

I have a Sony HCD-451 home stereo. The sound goes in and out every few seconds and there is a clicking sound when it does. I just moved and when I hooked it up after the move it started behaving this way....

Diagnose first. Surgery last.

A big clue is that it started after a move.

Recheck your speaker connections for loose strands that might be touching each other.

If it still clicks and loses sound, disconnect all the speakers and see how that works out. If it's stable (no clicking) add speakers unr\till the problem reappears. Then isolate which one it is/was.

Radio display says protect. does not emit sound.

Sounds like you have either a short in your speaker wire somewhere, wires touching in the back of the unit or a short inside the stereo itself... Try pulling the radio out and unhooking all of your speakers...Turn unit back on after all speakers are disconected...If unit still shows protect, then radio is bad...If it doesnt, power off and hook up speakers one by one and power it back on till it shows protect again....When it does, the last speaker wire you hooked up has either a crossed wire or the speaker is bad...

My Technics AV Control Receiver SA AX530 is in overload

An amplifier should never be turn on without speakers, it will overload internally.
make sure speakers work and try again.

I have hooked by two bose 161 speakers using 14 gauge speaker wire (about 8 feet) to sony str-dg720. But I get absolutely no sound from the speakers. I have hooked the speakers to port A set of input...

You gots ta isolate the problem.  Disconnect the speakers and hook them up to a stereo you know that works.  If you don't hear sound coming out of the speakers, then you know the speakers are fu.k.d up, so you need to look on the speakers to see if there is a fuse that is blown that needs to be replaced.  If you got sound coming through, then disconnect them and hook them back to the original stereo making sure you got a good connection and all the wires are in good and tight.  Then turn your stereo on and go through the various channels like Tuner, Tape Deck, Aux, and DVD to see if you get any sound.  Also turn the volume knob up. If you don't get any sound after all this, you know there is something wrong with the stereo your using.
