Check what type of Audio input it has on it. It should either have an Optical Audio input(glowing red while unit is turned on) or an Audio input(red and white jacks) You would run the correct cable fromthe Audio Output on your tv,To the Audio Input on your surround sound reciever.

A home theater system usually consists of a dolby digital stereo amplifier and 5 to 7 speakers.
Turn your stereo on and select the source that delivers video to the TV (DVD, VHS, Game, etc.). The video may be connected directly from the device to the TV, but the audio should connect to the stereo system (DVD, VHS, or other input). This way, the source audio is sent to the stereo and it provides the big sound to match the picture. Otherwise, you'd have to connect the source audio to the TV and let it's comparably tiny amplifier and speakers provide sound - that comes up short.
When playing a DVD, select the DVD input on the TV *and* the DVD input on the stereo. If you do not connect the audio to the DVD input on the stereo system, you'll have to connect to the TV, otherwise nothing will be heard.
Please check at rear of TV for Digital Optical IN port as home theater should have optical out port at rear. If you got any optical in port in TV, just connect optical wire between TV and home theater.
2nd option is check Line Out pins at rear of home theater system, if found, hook red-white RCA cable there and put it to same input in TV where you hooked Video (composite or component) cable.
Protect mode will kick in whenever a fault is detected.
You get the unit not powering up, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that is the protection switch that keeps shutting down the unit.
Causes that can start protect mode are:
Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.
Bad speaker wiring. Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.
Internal fault. Internal
fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not
work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In
this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an
experienced person. If the unit is less than one year old, or if you
want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the
As long as the colored connections are in the correct holes (red with red and so on) then you should have sound if not then the built in amplifier is shot, it is probably better if you get a new system or contact Magnavox for a exchange price on out of warranty units which they have
Sounds like it's just in 2 channel stereo mode, only 2 speakers working out of 5 and a sub, look for a selector switch for switching to 5.1 surround, as far as the no video problem try replacing the cable for the video connection.
