Question about Zenith DVT412 System

2 Answers

Zenith dvt412 Starting last week the volume on my system started going down by itself. I've taken the batteries out of the remote and it will still go down by itself over a period of a few minutes. I unplugged it and left it unplugged for a few minutes but still same problem persists. Any ideas?

Re: Zenith dvt412

Sounds like the system switch is broken. They use a piece of spring steel thats bent up to provide a snapping action (its very small). After years of continuous pressing the metal fatigue fails and breaks so there is nothing to keep the contacts apart. The most common button you will see this is in the volume up because its used the most. It seems that people usually adjust their volume up in more steps than lowering the volume as their ears adjust to the levels plus people tend to push the volume up button harder than the volume down.. There are a couple things you can do when this switch goes bad. There is probably a button on there that you dont ever use or could live without (loudness perhaps). You can take the good switch off that button and replace the volume button with it. You can do this by either desoldering them or by popping the clip off the switch and replacing guts. I have found it much easier to desolder them however because the small pieces are difficult to manipulate. If you dont want to lose the function of another button, you can try matching the switch with one from an electronics supply place like digikey, or go to a repair shop and ask them to replace the button or sell you a good button out of a broken face. Good luck!

Samsung 3d bluray volume keeps goind down by itself?


The volume down button on your remote may be stuck. Take the batteries out of the remote and try operating the player from the onboard buttons and see if that stops it. If it does then it will be the remote. If it doesn't, then it is the player.

Want surround sound for my direct tv channels on my panasonic lcd hdtv


All you have to do is connect an Optical or Coaxial cable from your Direct TV receiver to the same type of connection on your Zenith. Switch the unit to that input and you should be good to go. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

No sound from zenith dvt412 stuck in bypass mode..how to override?


this is a protection circuit.
When bypass mode then it means that something in the power supply module has failed and the unit then goes into protection mode to protect the board components.
Your surround sound need service from a qualified tech. No other remedy.

Volume increases on its own intermittently


When the volume increased did the display show it doing so as if someone was turning the knob?  I mean did the volume go from like level 15 to 30 or did the unit's level stay constant while the audio volume increased?
Were you alone or sharing the room with a jokester who has a universal remote?
Does this problem occur when the batteries are removed from your remote?
Are you sure the 'volume up' button on the unit itself is disengaging properly after being pressed?

Sound


To everyone having sound trouble... there is a solution! First make sure your TV is OFF. Unplugg the 2 main cables going into the DVT 412 for 30 seconds. Then re-plugg them. Press down for a few seconds on all the BLACK tabs connecting the sound wires and release. Without a disc in the player... and the TV still OFF, turn the power on and immediatley hold the down the STOP button on the DVT412 for 5-10 seconds. Your picture, vocal and backround sound will return to normal. Feel free to make changes to the sound now! Happy tuning... GO STEELERS! LOL!
