    Hey Repairguy, Thanks for replying, I tried this but it would not do anything, I have my laptop hooked up, that works, after hooking the TV audio out with the Amp in, there is nothing that happens. The options in the Amp are Video 1, Video 2, Tuner, Tape, Cd and Phono, I tried to hook it in all the INs but no luck. I did the same by hooking the laptop with all the INs of the Amp, that works perfectly. I am not sure if the Audio out of the TV is working and if its not working I dont know how to fix it.

    Thank you

You should just need to go from the audio o/p of the tv. to the amp. now the tv will have either fixed or variable audio out. if fixed ok, if variable, you just need to know that the volume out of the jacks in the back is directly related to the volume of the tv, so you will need to keep the tv volume up a ways. now on the amp hook up to an available input, make sure that the input you use is set to recieve an analog signal. this is very important. every amp is different you may need to read the manual on how to adjust the input from analog/digital/audo. good luck.

DVD output (HDMI) to HDMI input on TV will transfer both audio and video from DVD to TV. Audio output on TV to unused Input on Yamaha receiver (Aux, CD, etc.). This hookup will allow DVD and TV channels audio playback through your Yamaha receiver. Remember to test any/all new hookups or connections using minimum settings (volume, etc.), and bring up levels slowly for the initial testing.

A week ago I E-mailed you this queston. I also agreed to pay $12.99 to "Fix ya" for an answer. I'm not satisfied with the answer. My question was that I have a Protron PLTY-3250 flat screen TV. I need...

The response to your question is in two parts. There should be a couple of RCA jacks on the rear or side of the set labeled "output". These need to be connected to the input of the wireless headset transmitter. The second thig is to determine where the volume is to be controlled. The output from the set can be either Fixed or Variable. This means that teh volume can be controlled by the volume up/down at the set or not. Fixed mode is for connecting to a receiver where the volume is controlled by the receiver and changing the volume at the set will have no effect. Using the variable output mode will allow you to control the level of audio entering the transmitter and thus the volume. This assumes that the headphones do not have a volume control on them.

Setting the output to be either Fixed or Variable is controlled by the audio menu of the set. Please note that in variable mode, any internal speakers would need to be disabled as well.

Hope this helps,

Won't play dvd

we have two options in this case:
  1. the receiver is your main brain:
you hook up the dvd in the receiver and the tv works as a monitor (the receiver has to have video output to monitor)

2. anyone works at its own:
in this configuration the DVD (video) is hook up into the tv (any video tv input works fine) and audio goes to the receiver in any audio input.

My video out on my home theater system wont work.

your reciver probabily wont pass progressive through it, Hook the audio from the box to your reciever, and the video directily to your tv, thats a better way to do it anyway, your tv has alot better video prossesor than your reciver , or hook both audio and video to your tv, and run audio output from your tv to the reciver

I would check the low votage regulators, horizontal output and the flyback. The relay is the first stage of the start up process so the standby voltages are suspect as are the oscilation / Hv circuits. how are your trouble shooting skills?
