View Full Version : Need Help with Strange Rotel RSX-1055 Problem

08-13-2008, 05:46 PM
I have been using the Rotel RSX-1055 receiver without any problems for 7 years. All of a sudden, I could not turn the power on with the remote. I could turn it off but to turn it back on I had to do it manually.

This wasn't much of an inconvenience as I was able to just leave it on all the time. Then after a month or so, I couldn't control the volume either with the remote or manually. It didn't matter which input device I was using - it simply wouldn't adjust the volume.

That was odd, so I tried to power off and then back on. But once I turned it off, I could not get it back on. Nothing worked until I unplugged the power and plugged it back in. Suddenly, I was able to turn it on AND control the volume. But after 30 minutes, again the volume didn't work - manually or with the remote.

I then turned it off and again couldn't get it back on. Unplugging it no longer did the trick - it is now stuck and permanently off.

Any ideas what could have possibly happened? Any ideas where to turn for help?

I didn't see any Rotel service centers listed on their website but they do request that you contact them via "". You will need no doubt need to have it repaired. Don't even try to question what's wrong. It needs to be fixed. These things do happen. Take it from a fellow Rotel owner.
