Question about RCA RTD258 System
My RCA unit is less then 6 month old barely used just quit working. No lights on display or power button. I unplugged and pug it back in, power button comes on but when I push on it starts to click and shuts off. Any ideas???
I had a similar problem with my unit. It Worked fine for about 4-6 months with a slight problem of a loud hum of the cooling fan during the first 5 initial minutes upon turning it on.
However yesterday it all of sudden stopped working, it remained on, because you could hear the fan, but nothing else. I could not even turn it off, unless completely unplugging. I finally decided to open the unit up and unscrewed the top part. Apperantly some of the fuzes' covers (plastic) had starting melting down due to the heat, or improper ventilation, and that black molten plastic goop got in the way of the connections. I cleaned up as much as I could, and after that it seemed to be working fine...
This is not a bad unit, and has a great potential, too bad that the interior was so cheaply designed that its durability is obsviously meant to be of a short life span...

Do you have a DVD in the player? If an incompatible region code disc was left in the player upon shutdown, it will cause your particular system to lockup. Your unit has a 1 year warranty, and you can easily obtain over the phone help from RCA by calling 580-634-0366 and have your unit?s date of purchase and model/serial number ready. The model/serial number information is on the back of your unit. During your phone call the Technician will determine if you should receive a replacement unit, and if so, will provide you all of the relavent information and a Service Request Number for your tracking convenience. Keep this SR# permanently so you can cite your history should future problems arise, also, a helpful tip is should you utilize a Passcode for your system and forget it, the Master Passcode is 9688.
