Blown fuse? Hey All...I just recently hooked up my iPod to my Sony835 home theater. Several times the sound on the stereo has stopped...and a "PROTECTED" message appeared in the window. Usually it has reset...after turning the unit off. However now I get NO sound at all...from any setting FM...DVD...etc. I'm guessing a blew a fuse somethwere? Is it something I can fix or do I have to take it in? Any thoughts? Thanks much! C

Re: Blown fuse?

When you have a home amp that is in protect mode you have shorted o/p transistor(s) usually 1 goes bad but should be replaced in pairs. there are typically about 5 pairs. you need to find them & replace them.if you are not to enthoustic about removing & reinstalling boards in the amp, you may want to take it into a repair shop. the thransistors are typically 10 to 25 each. good luck.

I wanted to know if there is a way to hook up the sound from a Panasonic DMP-BD655P-K Blu-Ray player to my existing Yamaha DVX C310SW home theater system. I know I can hook the Blu Ray directly to the TV...

Yes this can be done. You have several options for audio hookup. Stereo 2-channel (white and red) RCA cables, digital audio (optical or coaxial) or HDMI. Your home theater must have the inputs available such as optical, coaxial etc. Typically the stereo 2-channel RCA is the simple way. Just connect from the Bluray audio outputs to the Home theater inputs (white and red) for stereo sound. Select the input on the home theater. For Dolby Digital 5.1 use optical digital audio cable (black port) or coaxial (orange RCA port) from Bluray to similar home theater input.

How can I hook an iPod touch to a coby dvd968?

It has a USB port that you may be able to us with your iPod's sync cable (I'm not familiar with this Coby model) but you can always hook an iPod to any stereo or home theater using a mini jack to RCA stereo audio cable, just plug one end into the headphone jack on the iPod and the red/white cables go into an audio input in back (or front) of stereo or home theater. Good Luck.

I am not able to hear the dialog while playing DVDs. The background is great and comes through all 5 speakers, however, to be able to listen to the dialog, I have to switch over to 2-channel or Stereo. ...

Well let me first ask is the center chanel working? or properly hooked up. Cause most of the times when in 5.1 the talking or "dialog" as you put it comes only through the center channel its just kinda how they do it. Listen to see if the center channel is working. if you are unsure try hooking up a speaker that you know works into the center channel speaker output. If no sound comes out then the reciever possible has blown its center channel. Please follow up with a comment and i will be glad to assist you further thanks, Midwes-tek

Home theater hooked up volume sounds low

Check your different settings either in your t.v. or your amp. In your menu settings you can change your audio. Bass trebile etc. and even sometimes switching it from stereo,mono, dolby digital will increase your volume. Dolby digital is very quiet if your not running and exteranal amp system. so try changing it to stereo and your volume should increase.

Ipod Hook-up

Ipod's utilize headphone jack style connectors which can be purchased just about anywhere electronics are sold, however most dvd players utilize RCA jacks so you must purchase an adapter from ipod jack to RCA jack it runs usually about $10-25.00 also you can purchase a FM transmitter kit for about the same price but sound quality is not as good so my suggestion is go for rca converter and hook it up to audio input in back of dvd player or stereo for best quality.

Can't get ipod to play on Panasonic SA HT-940 System

I have a panasonic home theatre and my ipod connects in the front of the system. The cable is basically a headphone cable with the same JACK at either end. In short the system is the headphone but you don't put it in your ears!!. You can pick these cables up from virtually any electrical retailer for less than the price of a pint!
