Question about RCA RT2500 System
Have a problem with my RT2500 where I have no audio output. Found that fuses F106 and F107 (125v 1.5a). After replacing fuses the unit would not power on (standby light on). Pulled fuses and was able to power on with holding the standby sw and unplug and plug. Put F106 in and powered on and did not blow fuse but when I put in F107 it powered on and blew the fuse again. Looks like F104-F07 are on the outbut of the large xformer (behind small speaker board). Also noticed that the 6800uf 16v caps (beside heat sink) were bulging at the top although I had not other audio problems prior to this. Have not checked resistance between the windings of the xformer yet (with 60-70 hour work week have limited time). Haven't been able to locate a schematic for this product so any insite would be helpful. Thanks...
I had the same problem! My fix was replacing both fuses and both 6800uf 16volt
capacitors. You can get the fuses at radio shack and I found the caps on ebay

Hey EmperorBob, was reading a short across D119 & D120. pulled (I think it was) C139 and was able to get a good reading across the two diodes. reading a short on the cap (out of circuit). Still poking around. Will let you know if I find anthing else...
