Question about Onkyo HT-S780 System

1 Answer

Broken Fiber Cable

Had to disconnect my system in moving and one of my monster cables snapped in optical one. There seems to be a piece of the cable still stuck in there and I cant use optical one. Is there anyway to get this out short of taking the receiver in for repair? I only need 2 optical connections. Im getting great sur. sound from movies from dvd on opt #2 but no surr sound from my HD dvr. Help?

Re: Broken Fiber Cable

Sometimes when the optical fiber breaks you can remove it by sicking in a small pin on the opisiste (inside of reciver)side of the connector. If no good then its gonna need to be replaced and if your no electronic fi-git then leave this to the pros. Good Luck

Optical Cable input not working

It is likely that the optical fiber inside the cable is broken, it is really sensible and gets damaged easily. I'd try changing the cable before even opening the home theater.

LG LFD790 installed with cable

if there is an input on the back of your cable reciever get a fiber optics cable and put it in to your theater system and into the box then select "ez/optical" and your tv should come through, or you can connect the fiber optics cable on the back of your tv into the system and keep the tv volume off
