Sound on home audio/video system not working

Hi,

My TV,cable, DVD are all connected with my Rotel receiver. The sound doesn't work anymore with cable or DVDs. It comes on sometimes and then goes away. Sometimes if I change the channel the sound will come back on but then goes away again. And sometimes the speakers start to make a strange, static/screeching noise and then the sound goes out again.

Also, what would have made the system stop working correctly? And do you think it's definitely the receiver and not the speakers?

Thanks,
Jodi

Rotel RSX 1067 is a good and powerful unit. But as stated over time heat and vibration will cause issues in these big A/V receivers.
I have repaired many, and for the most part it is solder connections on the power supply board feed-throughs and such. Loss of voltages to the digital board, or blown outputs caused by improper speaker wiring and or loads. All of the above is repairable but only with a very knowledgeable and person used to repairing these units. It is not for the DIY weekend warrior.

I have an HK AVR 355 system, that worked just fine. Yesterday I tried to hook up a new TV, and ended up taking a few cable out since they were not imoportaint any more and only used HDMI cable. Now when I...


Obviously you removed (or disturbed) something that was really necessary to the DVD's digital audio path. "Doesn't work" is pretty non-specific.

Do a web search for "HK AVR 355 manual" and download it. Then read the part about assigning digital audio sources and speaker configuration setup.

Look at the Troubleshooting Guide part that mentions the Channel Indicator Display (page 33).

Blue Ray Player Sound works but Picture does not


This could be a fault with the unnamed DVD player and its undefined hook-up. Does it work when connected straight to the TV?

My $.02: I NEVER run audio or video to any dievice that doesn't PROCESS it. No video to my receiver. No audio to my monitor. NO unnecessary cables or connections to degrade the signal, fail or troubleshoot.

To listen to Tv program sound through your home theater system you will have to connect a pair of RCA to RCA cables (Red and White pair ) from the audio out socket of the TV ( some times three sockets Yellow/Red/White labeled Monitor out. Ignore the yellow as it is video out ) to the Aux or CBL/Sat input of the LG system. Then to listen to the sound through your LG HT system switch the Input selector of the LG to Aux or CBL/SAT. Will work for sure.

Cant figure out how to hook up the receiver to my phillips hi def tv and get the sound?


its old model, will not pass hd video, good only for audio. Connections depend on your equipment. If you use a cable box to watch tv, connect cable box audio out rca connectors (red and white), by an audio rca cable, to audio TV input on the back of the receiver. Now when you swith your receiver to TV input you get sound from cable box trough your speakers.
If you use DVD player: connect audio out of the player to dvd audio input of the receiver. Switch the receiver to DVD input, you have sound from DVD.

No sound from rear speakers with TV and DVD player


You also have to connect a SPDIF coax or optical from both the DVD player and from the STBox into the digital inputs on the rear of the receiver. And select them with the remote control.

I Have just bought this reviever (Yamaha Rx-v365)and im just trying to work out how to best connect all my devises. I have Tivo, Lg DVD player with both yellow, red white cables and blue green red cable...


Hi, firstly some terminology:
yellow cable - video composite (worst quality)
white/red - stereo analog audio
blue/green/red - video component (second best quality after HDMI)

You are correct that RX-V365 doesn't do audio over HDMI. Moreover it also doesn't do any video processing, which means composite video input will go only to composite video output (and not to component); compoment input only to component output and HDMI input only to HDMI output.

If you have more devices of same video output (in your example the component blue/green/red), you can connect them to TV via the receiver. But if only one device of same video output, you can connect it directly to TV. There is no reason to go through your receiver for video.

For audio, you can use either the analog stereo white/red cables (rx365 has 5 such inputs) or better use digital SPDIF connection, which is slightly better quality and more importantly supports 5.1 sound. There are 2 types - coaxial (orange RCA plug, can use basic rca cable) and optical (square black connector). Receiver has 1x coax spdif input and 2x optical spdif inputs. Look at your other equipment to decide which cable to use.

For the analog audio inputs, I think you can assign it either to composite video or component video. So for DVD audio white/red plugs, you can choose if either Video composite yellow plug named DVD will be used, or component blue/green/red named DVD will be used.

No sound


You need to have an input audio source on your receiver such as a DVD player or ipod. The radio is an internal source that is why yo uare hearing sound from it. One thing you could do is run a cable from the audio out jacks on your television to an input on the receiver, and then when you are watching TV select the input you put the cables in to hear the television sound through your receiver speakers.
