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?

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

How to get optical to work


You hear about fiber optic cables whenever people talk about the telephone system, the cable TV system or the Internet. Fiber-optic lines are strands of optically pure glass as thin as a human hair that carry digital information over long distances. They are also used in medical imaging and mechanical engineering inspection.

In this article, we will show you how these tiny strands of glass transmit light and the fascinating way that these strands are made. Fiber Optic Patch Cables

I need from you when we install a fiber optic underground we need to put 2 cables one for working and other for backup ? or there is another choice?


What do you mean by backing up with a second cable?
If you know that one cable won't be enough in the future, then it is best to install a second cable at the same time.
If you are thinking of the second cable for redundancy purposes then if the first cable is broken/cut then most likely the second cable will be broken also.
The equipment at either end of the optical cable are more likely to break down before the optical cable.

Fiber optics termination


If it is loose tube cable, than you can do it in two ways. First using SC SM pigtails, which should be spliced on each fiber (don't forget that you need to protect the splice itself and protect bare fibers puttung them in same cassete or tray or ....) or the other way using "break out system" which will give your bare fibers more protection but the SC connectors can be mounted directly on the fiber in this system. Cheaper and preferable way is the first one.
If it is tight buffered cable there is also two ways of termination. First, directly mount SC connector on a fiber (no need for break out system) or splice SC SM pigtails. Cheaper and preferable way is the first one.
Good luck!

You don't need it, but you probably want it if you have an xbox adapter with a digital/optical connection. They are pretty inexpensive particularly if purchased online. Here is an example:

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
