Device: RCA RS1249 Shelf System I've

That is caused by the lens or the laser head: dust has settled on it and it's blocking the reflection of the laser to the sensor = no signal is detected so the player thinks that no disk is there.
Because this has happened so long time ago and nothing has been done to clean it i doubt the dust can still be cleaned - by now it has been probably baked in the plastic of the lens.
All you can still try to do now is to try a manual cleaning: dismantle the unit completely (take out the sides, take out the rear, lift the top and remove the transversal bar) and access the reading head - clean the lens with a can of compressed air from all parts and then wipe its face with a q-tip.

My RCA home theater system,

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

RCA RT2760 Home Theater. It is not powering on?

The manual gives no clue as to whether there is a fuse as the rear, but look for a screw out or pull out strip depending on country. Also check the wall plug with a device known to work.

Can I burn a CD from a tape on an RCA Model # 8530?

The RCA Model # 8530 appears to be a stereo receiver, which means it does not have the capability to directly burn a CD from a tape. To convert a tape to a CD format, you would typically need a separate device called a cassette deck with a built-in CD recorder or a computer with the appropriate hardware and software. If you have access to a cassette deck with a CD recorder, you can connect the RCA Model # 8530's tape output to the input of the cassette deck and then use the cassette deck's CD recording function to transfer the audio from the tape to a blank CD. If you have a computer, you can use an analog-to-digital converter to connect the RCA Model # 8530's tape output to the computer's audio input. You can then use audio recording software on the computer to capture the audio from the tape and save it as a digital file. Once you have the digital file, you can use CD burning software to create a CD from the captured audio. It's important to note that the specific steps and equipment required may vary depending on the exact models and setup you have. It's recommended to consult the user manuals for your devices and, if needed, seek additional guidance from the manufacturer or a knowledgeable audio technician.

Sub-out on Kenwood VR-6060 NOT Working with powered subwoofer

It seems like you've tried various connections and settings to get your JBL135 subwoofer working with your Kenwood receiver, but you're still facing issues. Let's break down the situation and provide some recommendations:
  1. Subwoofer Connection:
    • Using the LFE/Subwoofer Out: This is the preferred method for connecting a subwoofer. Ensure that the cable is firmly connected to both the subwoofer's LFE input and the receiver's Subwoofer Out port. Make sure you have enabled the subwoofer output in the receiver's settings menu.
  2. Subwoofer Settings:
    • Gain: Adjust the gain knob on the subwoofer to achieve the desired bass level. Experiment with different settings to find the right balance.
    • Crossover: Set the crossover frequency on the subwoofer to blend with your tower speakers. Start with a conservative setting, such as 80Hz, and adjust as needed.
  3. Receiver Settings:
    • Speaker Configuration: Set your tower speakers to "Small" in the receiver's settings menu to redirect bass frequencies to the subwoofer. This ensures that the tower speakers are not trying to reproduce deep bass.
    • Bass Management: Enable the appropriate bass management settings in the receiver's menu, which typically includes crossover frequency and speaker size adjustments.
  4. Check Subwoofer Cable and Port:
    • Ensure that the subwoofer cable is in good condition and securely connected to both the subwoofer and receiver.
    • Try using a different cable or testing the subwoofer with another receiver if possible to rule out cable or port issues.
  5. Factory Reset:
    • If you've exhausted all troubleshooting steps, you may consider performing a factory reset on your Kenwood receiver. This will reset all settings to their default values, potentially resolving any configuration issues.
If none of the above suggestions work, it's advisable to consult the user manual for your specific Kenwood receiver model or contact Kenwood customer support for further assistance. They can provide more detailed guidance based on your equipment and setup.

How to eliminate low level frequency hum when playing or recording through the AUX on ITRR501

Bad connection in the plug, bad grounding \ shielding on the wires and plugs. Pull the plugs one at a time until the hum stops. That identifies the lead. Check plugs and also if the wire is proximity to another EMI source. It can even be a fridge in the next room, so start turning off appliances.

RCA RP8065 5 Disc CD Changer Player. It does not respond to any front buttons, so I can't open the tray.

Question edited for a lot more clarity, written English and, full 'make model (what it is)'. Question moved to model category. Try a power reset. Disconnect from the mains for 10 minutes, press and hold the unit On button and plug back in. Continue to hold for 12 seconds. If that doesn't fix it you need an audio technician, or a new one.

Connect RCA cables to USB on home stereo

RCA is now generally considered as an old, rarely used system so most new stereo systems and TV's don't have them fitted. If there are parts missing from the setup you're trying to connect there is a good chance you won't be able to connect it to anything. New replacement systems can be reasonably cheap and much easier to connect to modern stereos and TV's.

How to replace batteryin elgin mini clock

I can't find answers anywhere on how to open battery compartment for the Elgin cat & fish bowl mini clock! I've searched the clock...I don't see any access points and the internet, nothing...I did read some where that the original packaging does not come with instructions, which leads me to believe it can't be changed, leaving it "one and done"! That makes no sense considering it is an Elgin... I saw one on the site...Worth Point, I think that's what it's called??? It described it as "easy to change" although lol I'm sure they have no clue! So, it's still a mystery...I've nearly scratched mine up so I'm leaving as is sadly! Good luck!
