Sony amplifier/vcr problem

My dog bumped into my tv stand which also holds my satellite receiver, DVD and amplifier...moments later, the sound went out. It will not work now with the tv, it works with the DVD and the radio will turn on but I can't hear my tv channels at all. I've checked all the connections and they are intact. What do you suggest if anything? Thanks.

Re: sony amplifier/vcr problem

The Dog must have not liked the program? No what you need to do first is check the things that you overlooked as obvious? Such as mute switch, Balance control, Not in the right mode, speakers turned off, Audio cables pulled out of the unit. In tape monitor mode. Thats the most common thing if you have no sound after a bump from the rump of a dog,person playfull partner. Good Luck

How do I connect a cd player to both a tv and an audio amplifier so Ican play either Cd's or DVDs?

Does the TV have a line audio outpot (red and white jack)? If so feed the amplifier input from there.

I can't get sound out of my amplifier and I haven't changed anything. What could be the problem?

Start by choosing FM on a known frequency with a station broadcasting and volume is turned down to a NORMAL listening level. Next, make sure speaker selector isn't the wrong position (make sure "SPEAKERS OFF/A/B/A+B is set to A [or B to match the speaker terminal connections]), check to be sure "Mute" function is not activated by pressing the MUTE button on the remote to toggle it between on & off, Make sure headphones are disconnected. Make sure "PROTECT" is not displayed on the front as this indicates a shorted speaker wire - shut off and repair the shorted wire(s).

If you get sound on FM, but have an issue with another external component (CD, DVD, Phono, etc.) check the cables between the component and the input panel on the rear of the STR-DE595.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Hi Martin,

A wiring Schematic is not that you should be looking. What you need is large feeders to understand hot to connect to various ports to give your desired output.

Problem with Yamaha dspA1000

Be sure you are using the AUDIO OUT on the vcr then going into a AUDIO INPUT on the DSP A1000, this will allow the DSP A1000 to amplify the audio line level.

Amplifier problem

Here's the basic problem. The DVD player can get a 5.1 audio source from the DVD. That signal is then converted from Digital to Analog and split into 6 channels of information. Each channel has an audio out on the back of your player. You are only using the Front L and Front R outputs. Based on how I read your description, they seem to be sent from your DVD to your TV, and then from your TV to your receiver. The problem is that you are only listening to two of the six channel, so you are losing a lot of information. How this sounds to you depends, in part, on how the sound is mixed on the DVD (5.1 versus just stereo, for example).

Because you don't have 5.1 system to take all six outputs (analog "DVD Audio" connections), you shouldn't be using those outputs. You could use the digital out (optical or coax SP/DIF) to send all channels to a receiver that could do the splitting (D/A), but it sounds like you don't have the equipment for that.

You didn't provide the model for the LG DVD, but there should be connections for analog stereo. They would be labeled as Audio Out L / R, or something similar. The connections are stereo, but your player would use all 5.1 channels to play through those stereo channels. You could connect those directly to your receiver, or you can continue trying to have the TV as a step in between (not suggested unless you just like to watch DVDs without turning on the receiver).

Surround sound 5.1

Does your rca cables go to a surrond sound amplifier or directly to the tv. The tv only has two speakers.If the signal is sent to a seperate receiver it must have a lisyen mode then set to 5.1 surround. The digital optic cable should go to receiver first.

Good Luck
