Question about LGDVT418 System

2 Answers

Speakers popping I've had the unit for 4-5 months. It works great and I love it until the speakers started popping. I don't blast it so I doubt the speakers are blown but hey who knows. All the spakers pop now at least once a minute not matter what I'm watching. As time goes by the popping get more frequent. I recently moved and it seems it started popping a lot more but I have it wired exactly the same and made sure no wires are touching, etc.

Re: Speakers popping

Thanks I tried fiddling with cords and wires and the problem has stopped for the time being. I've tried all channels right after each other the day I first posted and thats how I know its just on certain things. It definitely has to be the receiver if not the connection, what I don't get if it is the connection than it should be doing it on everything since the sound is built in it shouldn't be affected by other connections. If the problem persists I will call LG and try to get the receiver replaced.

Re: Speakers popping

Call LG if they are in warranty, should be after 4 months. Try reseating all connections including power, or changing cables. If it shows on all of your speakers, If it doesn't move with one or more speakers, you probably have a leaky capacitor in your reciever and will need to return it for repair or replacement. Hopefully its not just the receiver choosing to spike an amp channel at will. Could possibly be an electrical appliance in your home causing the noise by switching on and/or off. Have somebody walk around your home turning things on and off to see if your receiver is affected. If nothing pops, it very well could be your receiver. An experiment to try is using a different power outlet. Use a long heavy duty extension cord if needed. You want to get power from a different circuit. If that doesn't fix it, try a UPS device (like those used on computers). This will isolate you from the power line, and hopefully from the pops.

Have an RCA RTB 1023, blue rays have played fine until I played a movie last night and the voices echoed? What causes that??

A common mistake with this type of setup can make for a frustrating solution, until you realize how silly and simple it is.. I'm going to take a stab in the dark and say you have this system connected to your tv through an HDMI cable, correct? If so, please nod! Now that you've just finished nodding your head up and down at a computer screen, have a little chuckle and now we'll continue! :-P Your HDMI cable is special because not only does it deliver magnificent picture to your tv, it also carries the sound from your player to your tv as well as playing through your surround sound speakers! So here is where the fun comes in, depending on what you may have been watching on your tv that particular day, the volume level is bound to fluctuate, because of a little know fact that not all tv channels use the same sound output level as others... Ooo you've learned something new, pat yourself on the back and here is your simple solution. Next time your watch a dvd on your system turn the volume on your tv up up up, and down down down, some times there is a slight lag from the audio being played on your tv speakers than on your surround speakers. So when in doubt, just turn your tv speakers all the way down! :) enjoy

How to easily check your speakers and speaker wires

When in doubt about your audio speaker wiring, or if you think that one of your speakers might have stopped working, here is a cheap, accurate way of checking the speaker or the speaker wire. Take a regular 9 volt battery (like those used in smoke alarms) and touch the terminals to both wires of your speakers (disconnect from amp first), if you hear a pop in the speaker, the wires are good, To test individual speakers, touch the battery terminals to the speaker terninals and listen for a pop sound. If you can see the cone of the speaker you can also determine which pole is + and which is - by watching which way the cone moves, If the cone moves out you have the positive + battery terminal on the plus speaker pole. and vice versa. This battery test is safe for you speakers. If you do this kind of audio work, always carry a fresh 9 volt battery in your tool box.

Yamaha rxv-992 receiver wont power up

Disconnect all your speakers from the receiver. Turn the power on, and see if it stays on. If the unit shuts off with all the speakers disconnected, then you most likely have a faulty unit, and it will need to be repaired or replaced.

If the unit stays on with all the speakers disconnected, then you most likely have a bad speaker or a bad connection with the speaker wire.

Starting with one speaker, hook it up, and turn the unit on, and again see if the unit stays on, or if it shuts off. Do this until the unit shuts off when you connect a speaker.

Then disconnect all the other speakers, and leave the suspect speaker attached. Again, try to power up the unit. If it fails with that speaker attached, but works when it is not attached, then that speaker is your problem.

Remote control for Z-680

I have 2 sets of speakers systems for the Logitech Z-680
Both sets included Subwoofer and 5 speakers.

I bought one set and the Controller went out.
Logitch sent me a new Z-680 system then the second controller went out but speakers work great.
1 system speakers were never used
2 system speakers used for about 4 yrs (speakers work great)

Also have 2 remotes (never used)

Both speaker systems are for sale
Remotes will sell seperatly or with systems

If in need of the subwoofer speakers must go along

Email me if interested

After a while the system starts crackling and eventually sound deteriorates to thundering in speakers

Hi, I have exactly the same prob and I belive that it is in the amp module?! I am going to take mine in for repair as my other sony HT amp has just give up the ghost, (STR-DE435), it has a protector prob and is probably not worth repairing, although it is a great amp. If anyone knows the solution to this prob it would be great to hear it!!!

Rt2250 rt2500 speaker static noise hum buzz until fully warmed up

It sounds like a capacitor in the power supply is just about to die. With the power disconnected have a look at the large tin can looking gizmos near the power transformer. There could be a couple of them. Leave the unit switched off for a while before going near them they could still pack a splat. Replace them with the same value and make sure they're connected the right way and it should solve your problem. Whilst in there have a good look for any other smaller capacitors which look as if they're getting rounded at the top. Replace them too. Either that or dig deep and buy a new one.
