An exchange of capacitor C899(100μF/35V) on the standby board has resolved the problem. Under a dollar from an electrical store and you are all sorted. 10 minute fix for those with a soldering iron.

What is wrong with my theatre system?


have you tried all the sound settings from your dvd player? i have a 'sound' button to change from raw to surround etc. Press buttons and try it.

Some dvd's dont have the channel outputs, so try it listening to classic fm or radio 1.

No Sound when playing CD or DVD


Hi, in the menu check that the output is set correctly for dvd playback. ie not through the preout for an amp. It is possible for the unit to be set up to play surround sound for dvd's. Worth a try?

Surround sound


It must be about the sound quality need of your amplifier. The sound processor simply needs to get clear signals from sources such as fm/am receiver, dvd/cd players etc. in order to manage'em to give you the optimum surround sound. If the fm receiver has an "FM MUTE" option, I recommend that you turn it on. By doing so, you'll receive only good quality fm stations, furthermore your amplifier will let you get surround sound. The second issue you mentioned has its own answer inside. Use a "new" cd player, you can get optical cables, digital coax cables to improve the performance if you like..
