I would be looking for a component getting hot if it works for a few minutes.




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Re: rca rt2906 av receiver

Something is likely drawing too much current if the transformer is buzzing. While it is still working you want to troubleshoot it before it fails. Might not be to much wrong now but if the part finally goes it might take out other stuff. Might be a good one to get to an experienced audio tech if you don't find the problem quickly.
