DVD changer is jammed on my Panasonic Sa-pt770 Receiver


if you have 2 tiny screw drivers, if not, the tips of a butter knife might be skinny enough, you can try to insert them a wee bit into both sides of the tray and pry outward, carefully of course, and unjam the tray

Hi,here is my simple solution...
To listen your TV on your
samsung ps wx30 surround sound system ,
** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or "HDMI out " of your TV unit
** to "AUX input " or "TV" OR "Any input" of your
dvd player or "Optic Cable input" or "HDMI input"
** than just switch to respective mode on
dvd player corresponding your RCA or Optic connection or HDMI ..
.
There you go..Your TV sound is on the
dvd player By this means whatever you watch on the
TV (
tuner, satellite , Xbox , etc..) ,it's sound will come thru your
dvd player.

Hope this helps!..if more he?p requires pls let me know..

I have a JVC TH-S3 surround sound system and would like to know if I can l watch television in surround sound as i can watch dvd's and listen to the radio in surround sound. thanks


Yes you can get simulated 5.1 surround sound from your TV as well as radio. Just switch the JVC surround mode to Pro Logic II movies or music In some systems it will display only PLII.
Just connect the TV audio out to the JVC Aux input at the back ( red and white sockets ).

Sony TA-AV521 I have had this stereo system with surround sound for years. Recently I am finding that the surround sound mode is not working right. There is a lot of fading in and out whether it is on...


CD's and FM radio are created in 2 stereo channels. To listen to them in Surround, artificial processing has to take place in your receiver, so artifacts and fading are quite common when you do this. When you turn the surround off, your stereo is processing the information properly and it will sound right.

I just bought a Blue Ray player but my surround sound has a dvd player built in and only one input which I have my new Sharp TV plugged into. How can I hook up my Blue Ray . I have the HDMI cables


Depending on if your surround system has a hdmi input or not. if it does you can connect the blu-ray player to it. If it doesn't have an hdmi input you will have to run the hdmi cable from the blu-ray to the tv then run a set of rca cables (red and white plugs) from the tv audio out to the surround systems' audio input jacks to get sound through the surround system. Most surround systems don't have an auxiliary input for another video device.

I can barely hear sound even when turned all the way up


Turn-off all "surround sound" modes. Try listening to just a plain AM or FM talk station. Then you can check your speaker wiring. Some stereo programming can turn into nothing with certain surround modes, so make sure that your speaker wiring is correct by using the radio or CD player with it first.
