KS3102 - Audio Input help!!

I have the KS3102, and more than 1 time, my audio input 2 has dropped out, with no sound coming out. I run my satellite radio through this auxillary input. Does anyone know the code, or how to fix this problem? DVD, and CD playback work fine. Thanks, Andy

Re: KS3102 - Audio Input help!!

Hey I have the same home theater and experience the same audio problem from time to time. What you have to do is use the menu button on the remote and select all the speakers again. For some reason this home theater just turns off the speakers randomly from time to time. Now I'm experiencing problems with video not displaying on different inputs. I'm getting a new home theater, I think this one has had it.

Hi! It would just be easy. Just prepare RCA cables and connect the cables to the tv and satellite receiver. Link the TV and satellite audio output to the BOSE audio input. Good luck and have a good one!

I have an LG all in one home theatre system, LCD TV and Direct TV satellite box. It is all hooked up and working fine except I only hear the sound through the speakers when playing a dvd or radio. The...

OK. For all you regular Joe's like me here's the fix--plain and simple! I have Dish Networks HD receiver, an LG Home Theater System (LHB953) and an LG HD Television - although I suspect this applies for most LG TV-to-LG Audio Systems used in combination with a HD TV). My problem lied within the LG to LG setting known as SIMPLINK which tries to "auto-configure" everything between LG to LG devices.

Do this to make your HD TV (using Dish/DirecTV) play it's HD video display from the satellite provider but play the audio over the LG surround sound speakers:

1. Plug a HDMI cable from your satelite receiver's set-top-box to your HD TV. This will carry your HD "video" ONLY. Click "Input" on the TV remote until the HD video signal shows your desired TV channel from your satellite provider.

2. Plug an HD Optical cable (the one with the red laser) from your LG HTS (Home Theater System) to your satellite box. This will carry your HD "audio" ONLY.

3. This is the magic everyone seems to be overlooking. On the LG TV remote, go into the menu options and disable SIMPLINK by setting SIMPLINK=OFF. This feature allows the video and audio signals to be split over 2 different ports: HD video goes over the HDMI cable and the audio to go over the HD Optical cable.

Hope this helps!

I need a diagram of how to hook up my jvc 5.1 surround sound to my tv, dvd and cable box

I my self don't have that exact unit, but most are similar, and i have looked up the specifications which are:

1 x S-video input
1 x Composite Video Inputs
1 x Digital Audio (TOSLINK) Input
1 x Stereo Audio Input


document.write(neg_specification_newline('1 x S-Video Output
1 x HDMI Output')1 x S-Video Output
1 x HDMI Output
INPUTS (coming from devices to the system):
1) The unit already comes with a DVD player, correct? If so you don't need to connect it. If you do, connect your DVD play via an s-video input, since a normal DVD player doesn't need a higher quality/resolution input.

2) Connect your cable box to the home theater system via a composite cable (the one with Red green blue), if it has composite outputs ofcourse. If not, do it visa versa with the DVD, if your dvd has composite. So make the dvd via composite and cable box via s-video.

3) Audio from the dvd, this would be via Digital Audio (TOSLINK) Input or stereo audio input. the digial audio will give you true 5.1 surround sound, and the stereo will only give you left and right channels, like you would hear from anything else (like a normal cd, radio, etc).

4) audio from cable box, would be again depending what you want. If you cable provider gives you alot of programming that has 5.1 surround sound (mostly HD channels), you would be better off with the digital audio. But if you watch more via your DVD, then connect the cable box via the stereo input. Again, this is to your preference, and which one you want true 5.1 surround sound from. The system should be able to 'emulate' 5.1 surround sound via the stereo cable too, but if your watching a movie, it can't really tell if a sound is supposed to come from the left rear or the left front.

5)connect to tv via HDMI if available, or S-video.

HDMI is much higher resolution (HD quality) S-video is normal cable programing or 'dvd quality'.

And the Tv would be left on mute or volume=0 since no audio is connected to the tv! All the audio should now come from your system.

Sorry if this was too vauge, but I don't have the same system and dont know exactly what/where all the connections are. If you have any other questions let me know.

Sounds is lower than it should be, possible short.

Having read the problem report two or three times, it appears that you're running ~three~ cables from your cable receiver to the home theater system - orange, and red&white.
Often, when you can hear a low-level signal on an input, it's due to 'leakage' from another input, and it's my hunch that the cable receiver is sending audio through the red and white (analogue) connections, which you've plugged to the main sat/cable receiver inputs.
To confirm this, I'd be interested to know if, when you unplug the red and white connectors from the back of the Onkyo, the quiet signal completely disappears.
If that's the case, I would suggest either going into the cable receiver's cofiguration to see if 'digital audio out' is set (if such is possible) or switching the input to 'cable/satellite'...
Hope this brings you closer to the root of the problem!

Won't play sound out of the AV. 1 and 2

You probably have the av inputs set to digital instead of analog. The easiest way to fix this is to turn the theater system on, turn it to one of the the inputs, then hit menu on the remote. You will cycle through some options with the right arrow until you get to "input", which will offer av 1 and av 2, you can select either one with the ok button. then you will get some more options, analog - optical - coaxial, the first one that shows up is the one you've got currently selected. unless you're using one of the other audio input formats, the system should most likely be set to analog. You will probably need to do this with both inputs.

You have to do this every time the system loses power in my experience.

Cant get sound from speakers

That is because you didn't have the audio input connection right.
1. HDMI cable going from the Samsung tx72 output to Your Samsung TV HDMI input 2.
2. Non HD directv box Left and right audio output should be connected directly to the Samsung DVD receiver under Satellite input.Select"Satellite"for the sound from your Samsung tx72.You are good to go!

KS3102 Digital Optical Input Problem

What I did was turn on the system, don't put in any dvd in, or select an output 1 or 2. Press Menu on the remote, the display on the system display, not on tv should show Speaker, and other options. Select Input, select the one you want to use as the Optical Sound by press enter, then it will ask you on the system display input or optical sound input. Select optical input and press enter it will then say saved. You can then hit exit til goes back to where the display is back on main screen, or just wait til it exit by itself.

Wiring with a sattelite receiver and new Samsung TV

Nope RamaTheMan - you are incorrect! No way to get an actual surroundsound from your TV on this turd - this came straight from the Samsung FAQ -

"You cannot get surround sound from your television. On the other hand, if your television has audio output jacks you can connect your TV or Set Top Box to your Home Theater System and get stereo sound (that is, sound from the left and right speakers of your Home Theater System only).
To connect your TV or STB audio output jacks to your Home Theater System and get stereo sound, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off your TV and Home Theater System.
  2. Connect the Audio Out jacks on your TV to the External Audio Input jacks on the back of your Home Theater System. The External Audio Input connectors are typically labeled AUX IN. Note: There are usually two pairs of Audio Input jacks, AUX 1 and AUX 2. Each pair has a jack for the left audio input and the right audio input. Often, there are two Video AUX IN jacks as well. You can plug the audio cables into either audio AUX 1 or AUX 2. See the following diagram.
  1. Turn on your TV and Home Theater System.
  2. Press the Function Button on the front panel of your Home Theater System until the display on your Home Theater System shows AUX 1 or AUX 2.
For advanced installation, if you are using a High Def STB, you can connect an OPTICAL connection from the STB to the HTS. This is a specified cable that must be purchased separately.
In either instance, you must then set the HTS to its auxiliary input. (i.e AUX 1, AUX 2, DIGITAL IN) in order to get the sound from the HTS.
Note: If your television does not have Audio Out jacks, you may be able to get stereo sound by attaching the Audio Out jacks on your VCR to either the AUX 1 or AUX 2 audio inputs on your Home Theater System. If you attach your VCR to AUX 1 or AUX 2, you will have to tune your television to channel 3 or 4, and then tune to the station you want to watch on your VCR."

Koss KS3102 - Audio Problems

I think I have had the same problem. It seems like the system resets itself randomly. I think if you first turn it on in AV-1 or AV-2 mode, then hit the menu button on the remote, then scroll to ihe 'input'option, hit that then pick 'digital'. Do this for both AV-1&2. UI hope this fixes your problem!
