Lost my Digital audio signal, stuck on analog

I must have clicked on something by accident, and my sound is gone from the TV, from DVDs, from everything. I have the manual, and when I try and Switch the Signal Input from Analog to Digital, nothing happens. It stays stuck on Analog. I have not touched any wires.

    I have the same problem, it started when I was trying to set up a Harmony One remote. I just started switching setup parameters and somehow it strated working.



    Then..... I trying setting up the remote again and now it is stuck back on analog !

    Hi Informatica, thanks for your help.



    I'm inputing a Motorola STB and BluRay via HDMI cables. The AVR988 recognizes multi channel form the BluRay but not the STB. When I switch the AVR988 to CBL/TV it shows "analog" and picture comes on but no sound.



    On the memo above: if one of the other components (even if not in use) were set to analog would that affect the CBL/TV signal ?



    Thanks again.

Hi - Please check the setup of the digital inputs as per pages 11, 20. 21 & 37 in the manual.

Are you using coax or optical connections? Even if you have not moved them you should check they are securely fitted as they can work themselves out in time.

Let me know how you get on.

Best regards,
Informatica.

Have you selected the AUX IN?

Analog signal components such as a VCR.

Connect AUX IN 2 (Audio) on the back of the product to the Audio Out of the external Analog component.

Be sure to match the colors of the connecting jacks.

Press the FUNCTION button to select AUX 2 input.

The mode switches as follows :
DVD/CD ? D.IN ? AUX 1 ? AUX 2 ? USB ? IPOD ? FM.

I have a LG47" tv


Your DVD audio is sent directly to your receiver - not to you TV. That's why you can hear the audio on your stereo. The TV audio is not being sent anywhere - it is "stuck" in the TV and is amplified and sent to the TV speakers. Since the TV speakers are off, you don't hear anything. In order to listen to the TV audio on the stereo system's speakers, you need to send it to the receiver.

You need to have a pair (left + right signals) of audio cables (assuming you wish to listen to stereo sound) from the TV's Audio Output jacks to a pair of Audio Input jacks on the receiver / amplifier. You can use any unused input - CD, Video, Tape, Sat, etc. If you use Tape or Sat audio inputs, when you wish to listen to the TV audio, you must select the Tape or Sat input on the receiver.

Do not send more than one signal to a set of inputs on the receiver. Typically, a CD, DVD and Sat inputs offer two or more of the following types 1) Analog audio. These are the older RCA jacks that have been around since the beginning and require separate cables for left and right channels. 2) Optical inputs. This is the newer digital interface that provides for Dolby Digital (and others) format sound over a single fiber optic cable. 3) Coaxial inputs. This jacks looks like an RCA jack, but usually has an Orange ring - instead of the Red & White rings that analog RCA jacks have. They use a single coaxial cable. 4) HDMI input. This jacks carries both digital video and digital audio signals. If you are using an Optical input for the DVD on the receiver, do not use any other unused analog or digital inputs associated with the DVD to "piggyback" another device like a CD , VHS tape, etc.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Wenn I connect the coax cable the display show --------, and the Receiver can't detect the digital audio signal, even though I can mesure a PCM signal with the Osilloscope.

Page 71

There is no sound from digital sources (from COAXIAL or OPTICAL input jack). • Check that the INPUT MODE is not set to "ANALOG" (page 52). • Check that the Analog Direct is not being used. • Check that the "A. ASSIGN" function is not used to reassign the audio input of another source to the selected input (page 53). • Set "ARC" to "ARC OFF" when no sound is output from TV OPTICAL IN jack during TV input (page 58).

I would like to connect the audio from my Comcast DVR via digital optical thru the TV/SAT IN optical on the receiver at the same time I have a composite connection via the TV RCA composite jacks. ( This...


I'm a little confused by your use of 'composite' with audio, as in "Does anyone know what would happen if I ran both composite audio and optical audio both to their respective TV/SAT IN input jacks on the STRDE935 ?". What is composite audio?

The manual claims on page 48 that you can't record digital audio out to the analog REC OUT jacks.

http://www.retrevo.com/s/Sony-STR-DE935-Receivers-review-manual/id/387dj981/t/1-2/

I say 'claims' because the engineers or manual writers clearly are not as creative as you are in trying to wring as much utility out if this unit as possible.

I can't find an answer but I would offer this - if you are recording anything though any AVR, as soon as you choose to monitor the audio the digital input is usually disabled.

And I would be curous to hear more about what you're doing and how you finally achieve it.

Can't record out from a digital input


It only passes the signal it see's. Digital for Digital and Analog for Analog. Try running a Standard analog RCA from your Cable box to the receiver then try and record. Hope this helps. If you still have an issue, post a comment and I can help you further.

Marantz sr5001 has pcm light flashing after child pushed buttons on front of receiver. no longer getting audio/video in tv mode but other modes are still working without issue. how can I get audio/video...


I suppose pcm light means that the pcm mode is turned on (pcm meaning pulse code modulation), in other words, the unit was switched to digital signal, so if the digital rca or optical TV input on your reciever is not connected to anything, then you're not getting any signal into the reciever in digital mode. You probably just need to switch the unit back to analog mode (see if there is a button that says something like digital/analog, pcm/analog, optical/coax or similar, try pressing it, see if there is any change).

I might just be totally wrong on this, however, probably the best way to learn what happened is to read the user manual if you do have it (see what the pcm light signals for and check any chapters inside the manual related to that topic).

good luck

Lost sound programing on my Yamaha 5850 receiver some how can not figure out what went wrong. Do have sound on tuner. When doing setup testing speakers work. Any idea's what I'm doing wrong?


What do you mean by "sound programming"? -- I guess it's the ability to change the sound processing, such as from Stereo to Dolby Digital, or to Dolby Pro Logic or Virtual Surround, etc.? Maybe there's a "Direct" or "Pure" or "Tone Control Defeat" button that was pushed, which often (or always!) bypasses all the sound-processing circuits? Check the front panel and/or your remote for such a button and try that.
If it's a DVD player, it may be that the audio connections were accidently pulled or changed. Assuming it's the latter (more likely): Either the digital/analog output setting of the DVD player or the setup of the receiver could have been changed. Next, this is a guess, but most likely, it is the receiver that was tweaked -- in order to listen to some other source (such as the tuner), and it is no longer set up to process the digital signal, but stays in analog mode -- AND there's no analog audio connection from the DVD player (or it was not set-up to output analog to the receiver, since the preferred signal is digital surround). Am I getting warm?

No audio on any channel, even in audio setup mode, no audio headp


If you have any of its sound outputs connected to a TV or tape deck do they get the signal? If so, then we know there is sound processing somewhere inside the unit but not emerging to anyplace that requires amplification.

A quick basic check would be to tune an FM station, run an RCA cable pair from the audio output for a tape deck (see the picture at the link) to an analog audio input on your TV. Select that input on the TV and you shouls hear the FM station, or anything the receiver is configured to play. If it's silent then there is no audio signal circulating in the receiver to get out to the amplifiers.

http://www.onkyousa.com/images/hookup/TX-SR803/detail_tapedeck.jpg

Check to make sure Multi-Channel input is not selected unless that is what you're listening to as it bypasses all other sources analog and digital EXCEPT the tape; and check any Mute or Zone Controls, too.

If you hear the program on the TV but not through any attached speakers, then the amplifiers are all disabled for some reason. The click I asked about before... when you turn it on does it get a click about 5 seconds later. That would be the protection circuitry turning OFF to allow the amplifiers to function.

I notice it has a Tape function. Make sure it isn't selected as it assumes a tape deck or processor is attached and will only play back what would be coming FROM the tape deck or processor. On my Pioneer receiver it also disables any digital signal processing.

Sometimes when I'm watching TV with the remote on the seat someone moves and something bad happens. It's always some unfamiliar button that gets touched unintentionally. Look over the remote for things like MUTE, Multi-CH, Tape.
