    Recently my Rotel RSX-1067 has started making no sound. It powers up but creates no sound no matter the input signal. There is sound coming from the external subwoofer, which is self powered. So it seems that the fuses may be blown? Where can I go to get the unit serviced in the central CA area? Hanford, CA, 93230.
    Thanks

I had the same problem with my Rotel RSX-972. The problem is the capacitor that keeps the setting memory charged has gone bad. So after power off memory is lost, including input setting for each channel. That's why there's no sound.

You'll have to hook up the receiver monitor to the TV and set them again via the On Screen Display(OSD). Work around is keep it powered up and use remote to put receiver in stand-by. Permanent fix is to contact Rotel on replacing the capacitor.

Unless yuo can find a Rotel authorized service center, you are not likely to find any service information. These units should not be difficult to repair. Their designs are pretty much standard with a few twists. Any shop that handles audio repair should be able to resolve this. If not, please post your location and I'll try to locate a shop for you.

Also, are there any indications that the unit is trying to work at all or is it completely dead?

Thanks,
Dan

Rotel rsx 1065 switches on. every single thing is lit up in the display panel on receiver. But unable to select anything and of course no sound. what could be wrong?


Probably the EEPROM, the heart and brain of the appliance.
I had the same issue with my AIWA, could not figure out the cause, took it in, tech told me EEPROM is blown.
Not economical to repair.

Where can we buy the remote of RSX 1067 7IN1


I do not know anything about your brand or market, but I have had good success with replacement remotes at http://www.replacementremotes.com/
They have a very wide selection of mostly refurbished remotes.
Originally supplied with RSX 1058 is this:

Hello I have a rotel RSX 1056 witch I used once six years ago for two months . I lhavent used it since then , and now I decided to hook it back up and I have no audio . It turns on but when I set a radio...


If you stored it in an area with high moisture content it is probably corroded at most of the contact switches. Capacitors also hate moisture, especially paper capacitors! The tuner is also probably oxidized inside. Now is the time to be brave and pull it apart, but first PULL OUT THE PLUG from the wall. Have at it with electric parts cleaner spray and clean, dry compressed air. If you believe that just because you stored it in your house, there was no moisture, think again! Radios like cars do not do well in storage unless you take precautions to protect them!

Hi i have a Rotel Rsx 1067, powers up then off, the remote control is using new batteries, the receiver pickups the remote sensor but doesn't do nothing. volume control does not adjust up or down, and when...


Try fixing your remote controller, because sometimes when we neglected to replace our remote batteries for a while, it will leak and it will build up on the contacts of the remote pad.

Take off the battery, open the back of your remote, lift the circuit board, clean the green painted part with cotton balls slightly damp with rubbing alcohol as well as the black thingy behind your remote pad, let it dry put it back together, replace with a new battery and try if it works.

Good luck

I don't believe that Rotel service manuals are available outside of authorized service centers. Can you provide us with the problem that you have? Perhaps we can guide you through the repair.

Thanks,

This sounds like there is a problem with the final output stage. Is this a new amp? Is it under warranty?
