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!

Re: DVD power on

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

How do i get surrond sound for just tv shows

surround sound only comes over the digital out on back of the TV or better, on back of the Verizon boc, itll be a orange RCA jack I believe or the fiber TOS link, These go into your receiver into the same style jack. Digital in may only be associated with the DVD input. if your tv has a HDMI input, you can use the HDMI cable from the convertor box to the TV and then the digital out on the TV into the receiver, but I like the digital out to go straight to the receiver from the convertor box. HDMI tpo the TV will allow you to watch TV on the internal speakers if you dont want to use the amp.

Surround sound hookup question?

It looks like all you'll need to do is hook up audio out from DirecTV to audio in on the surround sound system. Sony has an interesting hookup recommendation guide on the product support site:

That should give you the connection options. The short answer, though, is to connect the best audio out from DirecTV to an audio in on the surround sound and then choose that option in the surround sound system when you want to watch TV.

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!

No sound through TV

In case you connect the System to a TV set using the Scart Connector, only the video signal is terminated, Audio is actually not wired inside the SB100 Scart connector.
Sound will only be amplified through the system itself (through the satelites and Sub) it can not be utilized as a stand-alone DVD player.
So after connecting your surround speakers the problem will be solved
