Remove all the external connections from the back of the device and connect it properly again at proper places.everything is proper.its just the problem of wires not connected properly where they should be.try interchanging the wires from 1 jack to another and then check it will work with any other combination.

thanks

How to set up a seven-speaker home theater system


Set up a home theater

How to connect your speakers

In order to deliver surround sound, home theater systems require 5, 6, or even 7 speakers--and that's not even counting the subwoofer. Connecting all those speakers together can be quite a challenge, so here's a quick overview of the basics.

If you don't have an all-in-one, home-theater-in-a-box system, you'll probably need to supply your own speaker cables. There are several different types available--they vary in terms of wire size (or gauges) and termination types. Make sure you pick cable that's a good match for your speakers and receiver. And make sure they're long enough; the rear-channel cables in particular will be stretching all the way around the room.

Once you've selected your system and have all your speakers ready to set up, begin by placing each speaker at or near its intended location. Then, attach the cables to them one by one. After securely fastening one end of the cable to the speaker, connect the other end to the appropriate speaker output on the back of the A/V receiver. Be sure to connect the cable to the correctly labeled output.

For instance, the front-right speaker wire needs to go to the terminal labeled front-right. Also, make sure that each speaker connection is in phase, meaning negative to negative and positive to positive. Otherwise, your system's sound will sound out of whack. Repeat the process for every speaker in your system. Note that the subwoofer uses a coaxial-style RCA cable instead of standard speaker wire.

Once all the wires are connected, you should test the system with several DVDs and CDs, to ensure that everything is in working order.

For our first example, we used an elaborate 7.1-channel system, so it may have 1, 2, or several more speakers than your system. Some systems even employ wireless rear speakers, or virtual surround-surround modes that simulate multichannel experience from 3, 2, or even 1 speaker. And some listeners still prefer good old stereo sound from 2 speakers. No matter what type of speaker setup you prefer, however, the wiring basics remain the same.

How to position surround-sound speakers and a subwoofer
To get the best performance from a surround-sound speaker system, you must install each speaker in the correct location. There are three basic types of surround-sound speaker systems.

  • The 5.1-channel system has five satellite speakers and a subwoofer.

  • 6.1-channel systems have six satellites and a subwoofer.

  • And 7.1-channel systems have seven satellites and a subwoofer.

Start by placing the center speaker either directly above or directly below your TV. The center speaker can be perched atop a direct-view TV or mounted on the wall. Aim the center speaker at ear level.

In most cases, the front-left and front-right speakers can be wall mounted or placed on stands. However, if your speakers have rear-panel bass ports, they should not be wall mounted. Space your front-left and front-right speakers the same distance apart as the distance between your center speaker and your listening position. Position the front-left and front-right speakers no more than two feet above or below the front-center speaker. The tweeters in the front-left and front-right speakers should be roughly at ear level relative to your seating position.

Ideally, the surround-left and surround-right speakers should be mounted on the side walls of your room, slightly behind or parallel to your listening position. If your speakers have rear-panel bass ports, place them on stands instead. If installing the speakers on the side walls isn't practical, you can mount them on the room's rear wall or place them on stands behind your listening position. The surround speakers can be installed up to two feet above the front speakers.

Also, 6.1 surround systems have a back-center speaker. You'll typically mount this on the rear wall of your room, centered behind your seating position. Position the back-center speaker no more than six feet behind the surround-left and surround-right speakers. If your speaker has a rear-panel bass port or if the rear wall is too far behind your seating position, place the back center speaker on a stand instead. The back-center speaker should be installed at the same height as the surround-left and surround-right speakers.

Instead of a single back speaker, 7.1 surround systems use a back-left and a back-right speaker. These, too, are typically mounted on the rear wall of your room. Position the back-left and back-right speakers so that each is approximately aligned with the left and right edges of your listening position. Place the back-left and back-right speakers no more than six feet behind the surround-left and surround-right speakers. If your speakers have rear-panel bass ports,or if the rear wall is too far behind your seating position, place the speakers on stands instead. Install the back-left and back-right speakers at the same height as the surround-left and surround-right speakers.

A subwoofer is the last component of a 5, 6, or 7.1 system. Because bass frequencies are nondirectional, you can place the subwoofer in various locations. You may get the best performance by installing the subwoofer in the front of the room, approximately six inches from the wall. If you want more bass, try placing the sub near a corner in the front of the room.

Connect your DVD player to your A/V receiver--digitally
To hear a movie's soundtrack in surround sound, you must first connect your DVD player to an A/V surround-sound receiver. You'll need to make what is called a multi-channel-compatible connection.

The easiest way to do this is to use a cable that carries a digital signal. There are two digital options: optical and coaxial.

An optical digital connection, also called TosLink, uses pulses of light to deliver a digital signal. According to some experts, one advantage of optical digital connections is that optical cables don't pick up noise, while lower-quality coaxial cables can. Many, but not all, DVD players have an optical output. Most A/V receivers have at least one and usually multiple optical inputs. Plug one end of the optical cable into the DVDs player's optical-out jack. Plug the other end into the receiver's optical input.

Finally, you need to tell your receiver to use the optical connection whenever you switch to the DVD input. This is called assigning the input. Information about this simple process can be found in your A/V receiver's manual.

A second option is a coaxial digital connection. This type of connection is also used for cable TV, but the connectors are different. This type of coaxial cable has an RCA connector. Coaxial cables are less expensive than optical ones. In fact, you can use any old RCA cable to make a coaxial digital connection, and you won't lose any audio quality.

Most, but not all, DVD players, have a coaxial output. Some have coaxial and optical outputs, so you get a choice. Audiophiles argue over which connection is better, but it's very hard to hear the difference. Most A/V receivers have at least one and usually multiple coaxial inputs. Plug one end of the coaxial cable into the DVD player's coaxial-out jack. Plug the other end into the receiver's coaxial input.

Finally, tell your receiver to use the coaxial connection whenever you switch to the DVD input. Again, your A/V receiver's manual will have instructions for assigning an input.

Front speaker from my 600 isn't working


I just ran into this in 4 of my 5 DF Procimema 600 speakers. I ended up taking them all apart (be aware - this will probably void any warranty). To do this, you have to take the speaker grill off. Next, using a small phillips head screw driver, take out the top two screws on the front of the speaker. Note - everything you need to do will be from the front.. you don't actually remove anything from the top of the speaker. Next, using a pair of needle-nose plyers (or tweezers or whatever you have) remove the 6 little star-shaped plugs. These are where the spikes on the speaker grill insert to hold it in place. I thought they were some sort of weird screw at first until I removed one, then realized they are actually just a rubber plug. They pull right out - no twisting. Underneath them are 6 more phillips head screws - remove these and the front plate, speakers and all, will (should) pull right off without damage. The problem, well with all of my speakers at least, is that the connections inside come loose or fall off. I just took my needle-nose plyers and squeezed the connectors both where the wires run to the back of the case, and also to where they attach to the speaker. This literally solved all my problems and now my speakers work flawlessly again. Don't forget to put the white insulating material back in place before you put the speaker back together and you should be good to go. I hope this helps!

The system would have hung up. Please remove the power and leave the set aside for over 6 hours so that the processor will reset if there was any error that have crept into while it was powered . Also remove and reset all the speakers, if possible with an individual test on each- use a 1.5 V AA cell-.
The amplifer can also be reset if there is a note in your manual.

Need help installing speakers to receiver


On the back of the receiver you will find the connections for the right and left speaker, OR if it is surround sound you will find, right front, right rear, left front, left rear, and center or bass. The connections can be RCA type jacks or they can be wire clip type.

Depending on the connections on the receiver and on the speakers, the wire will have to match the connections on each end. The wire needs to be large enough to handle the power output of the receiver. Wire can not be too large but it can be too small. Larger wire is more expensive, so there is no benefit in purchasing excessively large wire. Packaging should designate the power handling capability of the wire. The wire should not be much longer than is necessary to place the speakers where you want them. Too long wire unnecessarily cuts down on the power to the speakers. Don

What is the measurment between the speakers in a 5.1 home theator for installation time


If you refer to the manual it will be explained. Generally, you have to compensate for two parameters that will vary with the distance and location each speaker will be relative to your listening position. Time delay and loudness.

If you don't compensate, each speaker's sounds from each will arrive at different times and your ear/brain will process the image unclearly and unconvincingly. An echo from behind you might arrive at the same tiome or before the primary event in the recording that created it, for example. The further a speaker is away, the quieter it will seem to be.

Then there's bass management. Using bass-deficient satellites requires the bass to be routed (managed) to a speaker that CAN handle it. This avoids speaker damage of the satellites and is, IMHO, a severe compromise in sound, or a victory of form over function for those who want minimum visibility from their sound systems. Contrary to the press regarding bass as being non-directional an explosion or other loud event from the rear of the room will not be convincing if the bass segment of it comes from in front.

Rear speakers not working


Your FM tuner will only generate sound from the front sepakers. CD's, Tape, and I guess mp3 player, as well, will only play through the front speakers.
I've included a link for the manual. The audio on this rig is pretty complex. read through the info, especially pages 11,12,13, and play with the audio controls.

Help installing Yamaha home theatre system.


This is probably a setting problem on your remote-the unit will ony give full surround sound on Movies like dvd-on TV you may not get all speakers going as the cable does not provide signals to drive all speakers-check your manual and change to the appropriate setting-pro-logic is bad for this-will not give sound to all speakers unless the signal tells it to.
