Problem with rear speakers

Recently we had to send in the dvd player of this system due to a problem with it that caused the sound to not be heard at all. Before we had this problem, we could watch television, play dvds, etc. and be able to hear out of the rear speakers fine. But when we finally got the dvd player back and went to set it up, the calibration setup went fine and all speakers are working but now when I go to watch t.v. I cannot hear anything from the rear speakers, and only do when watching a dvd with a ton of explosions. I called the company I bought this system from but they tell me that is expected because the sound mainly comes from the front speakers. I disagree because like I said it worked fine before hand and now it's not. So, is there anything I can do to be able to hear from the rear speakers when watching t.v. and listening to music or are they useless and spent $800 to use them 10% of the time. Thanks!!

Hi Pookie, This is an easy fix. All you need to get is a CD/DVD-Player Laser-Lens Cleaner for about $5.00. You can get these at Best Buy, Circuit City, Radio Shack, or any similar place. Use this, and let me know how it works for you. Best regards, nightdiver

SOURCE: my speakers have almost constant crackling noises

Hello, there is no chance that you can fix this problem by replacing speaker wires. Resoldering the output stages as well as area around the microprocesor could be the efficient solution. If you need more info please advice.

SOURCE: Sony center speaker and rear speakers don't work all the time

try using another speaker for the center channel and the left speaker, also watch your ohm load, most of the want a 4 ohm load. try to narrow it down to see if it is the speaker or the amp.

You need to use a HDMI 1.4 Cable and it needs to be connected to to an HDMI socket with an ARC (audio return channel). Alternatively you can connect using an optical cable (TOSLINK).

I just hooked up my Sony DVD Player DVP-SP200P and when I put a DVD in, there is a loud humming sound heard. What could cause this?

It could be here the motor inside that loads/unloads the disc. If unit is opened try to localize where the sound is coming from--is it from the motor or the mechanism?

Replacement DVD players are real cheap now so maybe.........

Can I set up the dvd player to be listened to without the headphones?

I don't know what type you have...However, Audiovox makes a wired FM modulator that plugs into the back of the radio (wired from the DVD player) that permits the DVD player sound to be heard through the vehicle's sound system. Relatively inexpensive and simple to install. I hope I've helped. If so, please rate my assistance and leave a comment to help others. Thanks and good luck.

Volume fade

Check to be sure there are no speaker wires touching ground, and that the wires are connected in phase to the head unit.
Front Speakers 5 1/4" Doors Left Front (+) Green Left Front (-) Black/White Right Front (+) White/Red Right Front (-) Black/White Rear Speakers 6" x 9" Rear Deck Left Rear (+) Pink/Red Left Rear (-) Pink/Blue Right Rear (+) Pink/Light Blue Right Rear (-) Green/Red

The symptoms you are relaying definately sound like an internal amplifier problem. It is fading in and out for a reason - usually due to heat.

Have you had the radio bench tested (seperate from the car) to eliminate the car as being the culprit?

Since the radio was run with damaged speakers originally, the output or amplifier power supply on the amplifier may be bad.

As an alternative to repairing, I would suggest investing in a small 2 channel amplifier to power the speakers.

The radios claim 50W per channel, but in reality give 12-15W RMS power.

A dedicated amplifier with built in crossovers and gain adjustments will prolong the life of your speakers and add to the tonal qualities of your new speakers. Instead of turning up the volume on the head Unit, and sending out a distorted signal that will blow your speakers, an amplifier will give more CLEAN power to them, so it will be louder at a lower volume setting.

This will bypass the internal amplifier on the radio, and send a Low Level signal ONLY thru a set of RCA cables.

Good Luck!!

DVD plays partial sound

Check your speaker connections it sounds like you have a 5.1 or higher sound system. 5.1 means left front speaker, right front speaker, center speaker, right rear speaker, left rear speaker and subwoofer.

Voices in movies all get channeled to the center speaker (you can usually hear it a bit from the right and left front speakers as well). If your center speaker is disconnected or not working, you will only hear the background sounds.
