Question about Panasonic DMR-E50 DVD Recorder

My panasonic wireless surround sound won't work out of the Rear speakers

I have purchased a panasonic sc-ht545w home cinema system with wireless rear speakers. The front left, right, centre & sub speakers all work. However the rear speakers do not work. I have checked that the wireless reciever is connected & plugged in correctly & that the speaker wires are connected to the back of the wireless reciever. I have also checked that the "W" is permanently on the dvd/amp meaning that the wireless is receiving a signal. Yet still no sound.

Hi I've got a Panasonic sc bt100 home cinema could someone tell me how to get the surrounds to work without having wireless speakers I've noticed inputs on the back of the system but it doesn't work ?

Not quite understanding what your problem. The surrounds simply connect to the rear connections of the amp. The rears will only play when the source material has surround info.

Home Cinema Wireless Kit

It may be favorable to simply purchase a rear wireless speaker system all by itself and use the existing system for surround sound applications. Monoprice . Com has some units are a good price.

Just purchased SBHS100AE-K rear speakers to connect to my SC-BT100. I want to connect them wired rather than purchase the wireless transmitter, but I can't figure out how to connect the wired rear speakers...

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:

I hope this answered your question.

Panasonic Wireless Rear Speakers Ticking

move ur speakers around. if the noise is absent on some places u can be sure its the digital box. or one fix that might work is - get aluminium foils and wrap ur speakers. this can blank out interferences. if that works, open ur speakers and line the walls with thick aluminium foils. hope this helps.

Can't get the surround sound to play the rear speakers and small front speaker

Sounds like it's just in 2 channel stereo mode, only 2 speakers working out of 5 and a sub, look for a selector switch for switching to 5.1 surround, as far as the no video problem try replacing the cable for the video connection.

Fornt speakers does not have any sound.

remove the front speakers cables from the rear-remove surround speaker cables from the rear and put them in the place of front speaker-run a music if you get good sound the problem in your front speakers(speaker or its cable)-if you got nothing you will have a problem in your system itself and need to fix in service center.
