DVD player set to the wrong TV type and I can't see the menu

Hi,

I have a PRIMA HT-8104 home theatre system. I am in Canada.

Iaccidentally switched the TV type (in Setup on the DVD player) awayfrom NTSC and now my TV set will not display the DVD player menu.

Because my TV won't show the menu, I can't change it back.

I have tried unplugging it, waiting and then plugging it back in, but it does not help.

There does not appear to be any external way to re-set to factory settings.

What can I do?

Thanks

If you have a component connection, switch the yellow video cable into the component BLUE connection. You will get am image, just reset the unit or undo the setting.

No surround sound with Prima HT-TW57P DVD System


I realize this may sound silly but it could be the disc your are playing. Some DVDs are not mixed for surround sound and thoes that are produce very little sound from the rears.

Rear speakers were meant for effect, not meant to distract you from the picture.

Give this a try, get a movie playing that is 5.1 surround sound. Check that the home theatre is not set to stereo mode, if it is change the surround mode on the unit. Now that you are in the middle of an action scene disconnect the front speakers and see if there is background noise comming out of the rears.

If its still dead let me know more details about the system and I will work on a solution.

Cheers,

Connect external sound system to Prima tv


There is sound coming from the tv speakers though? I had the same problem with my top of the line 7 channel surround sound theatre system. Its not that there is anything wrong with the sound system but that you may need to plug the Audio cord into the external device IE: cable box. Mine works strictly for the dvd function of my system because of this.

I have bouight a samsung home theatre system that comes complete wiht a DVd player - i also have a samsung blu ray player - naturally ithought they would be compatible!! how wrong i was!! the connections...


You have several ways to do this. You can hdmi cables from the two units and plug them into your tv if it supports hdmi and run the audio out portion on the back of the tv and hook that into one of the audion inputs on the surround unit. Or you run audio directly out of the bluray using rca, digital coax, or digital optical cable. Turn the surround reciever to the corresponding input that you choose to use.

Connect home theatre to 32" lcd to ps3


Depending on the year of your model of VIZIO your digital optical output may be tied to the DTV input only. Meaning the only time you will have audio coming out of the digital optical output is when your using the tuner and your on a digital channel. If your television is newer and the digital optical output is in white on the back of the television than it is tied to HDMI and the DTV Tuner and you will pass audio through the digital optical output when using HDMI or the Digital Tuner.

Now to get connect the HT: Normally you would run a digital optical cable from the source device to the home theatre system. Meaning if it was a PS3 you would run a optical cable from the Digital Out on the back of the PS3 to the Digital In on the Home Theatre receiver. If it was a DVD player than you would run the optical cable from the DVD player to the HT receiver. If you have a newer VIZIO and the optical output is in white and not black than you can run HDMI from the PS3 to the VIZIO and then run a optical cable from the VIZIO to the Home theater receiver.

You will have to adjust the audio setting in the PS3 to run audio out of the HDMI port if it is set to run audio out of the Digital Out or AV out. Also, if your going to run audio from the PS3 to the HT receiver through the Digital Out then you need to change the audio setting in the PS3 to Digital Out.

1. Select (Sound Settings) under (Settings) in the home menu.
2. Select [Audio Output Settings].
3. Select the input connector on the audio device.

Channel numbers and audio formats that are supported vary depending on the connector in use. AV is 2 ch. only, Digital Out is 2 ch. & 5.1 ch, and HDMI is upto 7.1.

Prima HT 8104 home theatre


in the 3D processing turn on the Pro Logic and the for the mode as well set it to pro logic.
it simulates 5.1 surround.

this is what I did and it's decent. Other way would be to run the system through a amp/receiver that supports 5.1 surround.

The audio will not play through the tv from the home theatre unit


because you do not have the dvd player hooked up to the tv, if you want it to play through the tv then you need to have the dvd player connected to the tv.
