Question about Akai DHT300 System

1 Answer

DVD power on

My surround sound system was woring perfect for two years straight. then after moving it to a new location it does not power on properly. when i hit the power button it turns on but as soon as the amps attempt to power up it shuts down. i found out that the volume is set to 35 which is way too high. i have tried everything i know how to do. i have even opened the product up and tried to find the memory to see if i could flash it to get a factory reset but i have been unable to locate anything. if anyone has had the same problem or has been able to fix this problem please tell me how!

I think that there is overloads on that specific socket that you're using try to change the socket. Or see if you have connected the rca cable properly because if the sound is connected to the video of the dvd output it might cause overload on the dvd which makes it turn off for safety reasons. Good luck with it!!

You must have an external cable connection from the DVD audio output to the surround DVD input. As well there should be an output from the surround marked subwoofer. Connect them with the proper cable

My surround sound speakers don't work. No power

LCD will display which speakers are active. And this depends on 2 things: the source signal and decoder mode.
If source signal is stereo, only front L+R speakers are used. For 5.1 signal (for example DVD over HDMI / optical/coax spdif) all speakers installed (which are not set to None) are used.
To listen to stereo input signal using all speakers, switch decoder to enhancer mode.

Umi freeview dvd tv combo to surround sound

I am not familiar with the manufacture and model of your TV set. This does appear to be a compatibility issue between the TV set and its DVD player, and the surround speaker system. The TV set may not be able to directly send the proper information to the speakers. I would consider to call the manufacture support people to have a definate answer.

DVD player and receiver will not play a dvd in surround sound ?

The dvd player is responsible for reading the surround sound track, and sending it to the receiver. First make sure you are playing the surround sound track on the dvd, many have a stereo track too. Next, try another dvd and see if you can play surround sound on that one. If you can't play surround on ANY dvd I would start looking at the audio connection from dvd to receiver. Are you using an optical cable? Red, white, and yellow RCA cables? Optical will transmit any sound over only one cable, RCA cables need one cable for each channel (LF, C, RF, LR, RR, sub.) If your connections are correct, is the receiver set to play a surround sound track? Is it set in 2 channel mode?

Movie freezes, skips.

Does sound like the laser. Realitically, not worth repairing. I'd say you'd be worth connecting a cheap DVD player to the system - then the Sony can carry on providing the surround sound audio and the new DVD player can provide the video. Then, if the cheap DVD player is still going, it can move to a bedroom TV if and when you replace the surround system....

Otherwise, I would imaging the speaker set (and even the non-working DVD player) on its own might fetch a reasonable price on an auction site - anyone who has a stolen DVD unit will probably be desparate for the speakers as Sony don't sell them separately!
