SL2 Receiver does not light up/rear speakers do not work
SL2 receiver does not light up. All connections are secure. Transmitter blinks. We tried resetting both, transmitter first, then receiver, to no avail. The rear speakers are dead and no light is on the receiver. Help! :)

This unit is not as flexible as traditional receivers are as far as speakers are concerned. Speakers are labeled and *must* be connected to the correct speaker terminals.
Upon reading the manual - it is quite apparent that the only provisions for rear surround speaker connections is <i>only</i> via the optional wireless transmitter / receiver hardware. The optional digital transmitter is connected via a proprietary plug on the rear of the SC-BT100. The optional receiver amplifies the received signal and passes it to the connected surround speakers. I would bet that there are no provisions for amplifying a surround L and R speaker channel inside the SC-BT100, and that it only provides a low level (like a "tape out") or un-amplified signal to the transmitter plug. Even if you were to manage to get the surround speaker connections made up there - you would not be able to hear anything from them - as there is no amplifier. The amplifier is contained in the wireless receiver, and is largely why it requires a connection to house current.
Unfortunately, I doubt you'll find a way to listen the surround channel audio from the SC-BT100 without the optional transmitter / receiver and the integrated amplifier.
You can review the manual like I did here: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/SCBT100.PDF

Older Transmitters and Receivers will not work with these new
electronics. There are no Security Code Switches inside the Door
Operators, Transmitters and Receivers.<br />
To Program Receiver <br />
Step 2-1 Locate the Learn Code Button and Radio Signal Indicator on the Power Head Receiver of your Door Operator.<br />
Step 2-2 Press a Transmitter Button once within 30 seconds.<br />
Step 2-3 Press and release the Learn Code Button<br />
• The Radio Signal Indicator will blink approximately 2 times per second.<br />
• The Radio Signal Indicator stays lit - SOLID.<br />
Step 2-4 Press the same Transmitter Button within 30 seconds.<br />
• Radio Signal Indicator will go out.<br />
NOTE: If a second Transmitter Code is not confirmed within 30 seconds or
if a different Transmitter Code is sent, the Radio Signal Indicator
will blink approximately 4 times per second, then programming will
stop. If programming stops, repeat Steps 2-2 through 2-4.<br />
Step 2-5 Repeat Steps 2-2 through Step 2-4 for each Transmitter, Wireless Keypad or other access device to be learned.<br />
NOTE: A maximum of 7 Transmitter, Wireless Keypad and other access
device Codes can be stored into Receiver Memory at one time. If a
Transmitter becomes lost or if you want to delete a Transmitter,
Wireless Keypad or other access device, proceed to ERASING ALL RECEIVER
<span style="font-weight: bold;">Multi-Button Transmitters</span><br />
NOTE: Only ONE button of a Multi-Button Transmitter can be programmed
into a single Receiver. The other buttons are to control other Door
NOTE: If you are replacing a lost or stolen Transmitter:(1) Erase ALL
Transmitter Codes from the Receiver memory. (2) Reprogram the Receiver
with the remaining Transmitters Codes.<br />
<span style="font-weight: bold;">Erasing All Receiver Memory</span><br />
Step 4-1 Press and HOLD the Learn Code Button for 10 seconds or until Radio Signal Indicator goes out.<br />
<span style="font-weight: bold;">ALL Transmitter Codes are erased from Receiver memory.</span><br style="font-weight: bold;" />
Step 4-2 Reprogram the Receiver with the remaining Transmitter Codes (Repeat Steps 2-2 through 2-4).<br />
<span style="font-weight: bold;">Step 5-1 Battery replacement</span><br />
• Slide Battery Cover off of Transmitter back.<br />
• Replace with new batteries.<br />
• Slide Battery Cover back on.<br />
<span style="font-weight: bold;"><br />
Step 5-2 Visor Clip installation</span><br />
• Slide Visor Clip into back of transmitter until it snaps into<br />
Your connection between the AR transmitter and the ONKYO receiver sounds solid. I'd guess it's the wireless speakers that are the wrong point, or at least that's what I'd look at first.
Doing a bit of research, I noticed a couple minor points.
First, these seem prone to RF interference from other RF devices. Have to tried switching channels on them?
Second, someone reported theirs would not work properly unless the speakers were turned on just before the transmitter, and turned off shortly after the transmitter. Apparently you have to hold the button on the front in for 5 seconds to turn the speakers on or off.
I know that's rather basic, but it's been a few days and no one else has responded, so I figured we should start somewhere.
You speakers are out of phase. Check to see if the polarity is correct on the receiver and the speaker. Positive (red) with positive, negative with negative (black). Also check the impedance of the speaker, it should be located on the back of the speaker measured in ohms. Make sure that your receiver matches the impedance of your speaker. You can find this in the settings of the receiver.
I'm having this same problem; it worked all ok in the beginning then one day it didn't and no matter what I try it doesn't seem to connect. Similarly im getting the W1 flashing and even when I take the receiver and move it closer (even within a few feet) it still wont pick it up. I've removed the wireless home phone and baby monitor from within the room without any result. I cannot think of anything else that could be interfering. Any advice or resolution would be much appreciated.
Speakers have a unique RF frequency that needs to pair with the receiver (kind of like a blue tooth headset with a cell phone). At times, the signal may reset, so, you may have to go through the initial pairing sequence. Try this: 1. Unplug rear speakers 2. Make sure the sound signal connector is plugged in to the back of the system properly. 3. Press and hold the ID button for 3 seconds until the blue LED light flickers. 4. Connect the power chord to the rear speakers.
The SL2 works in such a way that the speaker satellite out put from the bass modules is fed to the input of the SL2 transmitter (remember, transmitter) then the sattellitespeakers are connected at the other end of the room to the receiver. An initial blinking green light should be seen and once the system is turned on this turns into steady green. Both the SL2 transmitter and receiver operates via WIFI.
