If you have speaker wires that have strands, you may be getting a short if one small strand is shorting across the terminals, or a poor connection. Check carefully, perhaps even by disconnecting and reconnecting the wires. Also check for proper polarity - positive to positive, negative to negative. (unlikely since it just started). You can also get a new set of wires and check speakers one at a time to see if it goes away. or get another speaker that works and then replace each one with that speaker in turn to see if it resolves it. Good luck

SOURCE: RCA RT2280 surround sound mode button wont select 5.1 dolby digital mode.

I had the same problem and this is what I did to fix it. Assuming that all of your equipment is powered on, (tv, blu-ray/dvd, rca receiver) you'll need to go into your dvd players audio menu and select the dolby digital audio.
Once you do this, the digital signal is sent to your receiver from the dvd. The receiver should automatically set itself to the dolby digital preset. If it doesn't, press the surround button until you reach it. I found part of this information here. And the rest was personal experience.
Also, it depends on if the disc format is in dolby 5.1. I hope this helps you.

I Have am RCA RT2280 that has no power accept for the led on the power button, Any Ideas?

My RCA 2280 receiver went out on me one day. I thought I'd have to take it to the shop. But before I do that I'll check the fuse because I took it to the shop once before and the repair man said that it was the fuse, he replace it with a new one. So I thought that I would take a look inside first. I took the cover off and looked around and notice that the fuse looked loose. It was loose. I just push it all the way in, replace the cover, plugged it back up and it worked.
As far as the on and off problem goes (which happened to me too) the speaker wire coming from one of the speakers to the back of the receiver were crossed, over loading the system causing it to over heat resulting in it shutting off. I found that the wire was going from red to the gray instead of red to red and gray to gray. Once I rearranged the speaker wires I had no more problems and that was years ago. I haven't had anymore trouble sense. I've had the receiver maybe 12 years now.
Except for today with the Dish Network 20.0 IR 155681 remote control for the 722k HD/DVR. I tried everything in their book but I can't get it to control the RCA 2280 surround sound volume. Anybody gotta clue? I would surely appreciate it. Good Luck.

No sound from tv, dvd, cable. Speaker test does work. Sound stopped suddenly when channel was changed.

What does this mean: "when channel was changed"? TV channel?? Would that mean a remote command was issued? How about FM (no external cabling)?

I have an lg lcd mod#lc427d hdtv how do i hook up an rca rt2280 system to it. i have a dvd player hooked up to tv now using hdmi cables, rca av reciever does not have them...

You can check your dvd player for a coaxial or an optical sound output, then you can plug it directly to your receiver. Those two are the best options after HDMI. Another option is A/V RCA type cable, you´ll need 3 stereo A/V wires, in order to connect the 6 channels. Remember to uncheck the HDMI sound output option on the DVD menu.

Have you disconnected all of the speakers and tried? Sounds like there is a short and the amp is going into protect mode.

I have RT2280. Audio levels used to be 1-50, now

Sounds to me as if someone may have gotten into the menu to adjust the individual levels of each loudspeaker and cranked some of them way up. As to why the "main" volume level goes from1-20 now as apposed to 1-50, you got me there...

Is there a reset button or equivalent on the remote or the unit? Try that. Try unplugging the unit for 15 minutes...

Here's the owner's manual:
