    I do have 3 input jacks, I had a 5.1 system previously but the subwoofer stopped working so I have bought a new one. Just no music now though and can't seem to get a solution.

If you're connecting a "5.1 surround system" to a single jack that you plug your headphones into, it's not going to work. Headphone jack is Stereo, 2 speakers. You need at least 3 input jacks for 5.1, plus one for the subwoofer. If you don't have these, you'll have to buy an add-on card.

Headphone jack is an output not input jack. Your going to need a cord to go from your headphone jack(output) of your phone to audio input on your receiver. The cord has a mini stereo plug to the phone and RCA plugs of left and right to your receiver auxiliary input. Good luck..

How to connect my JVC Audio/video control receiver digital surround sound system


Hi,
Need to know how to set up a surround sound system? It's fairly easy, with the right equipment. Surround sound gives you that "theater" feel in your own home.
For more information on optimizing the sound of your chosen system visit:
http://www.ehow.com/how_3393_set-surround-sound.html.
To set up a surround sound system go to:
http://forum.ecoustics.com/bbs/messages/34579/219978.html.

Additionally,Some people prefers a wire diagram to connect their surround sound system. The basic concept to connect any audio system is to follow the path of sound from its origin to its final output stage, either headphones or speakers. There are other basic premises to follow, such as the impedance of the speakers and the output of the amplifier, but the concept is to start with an input and terminate each input to an output somewhere on the amplifier unit.
A wire diagram shows a picture that represents where each of these wires would go in considerably little detail. One example would be that a television set starts with a signal from somewhere, broadcast or cable, and comes out of that antenna and goes into the surround sound amplifier. The sound is processed in some way and the video is output to the television set and the audio is output to the speakers or headphones. Although complicated in textual from, most find that a wire diagram is much easier to follow.

I have a djm 400 and it has started producing a buzzing sound through the speakers. I can take the same speaker cables from the djm 400 and hook them up to my backup mixer and the buzzing goes away. What...


Does it buzz through cans? (headphones). Try listening on headphones (turn off any amps and speakers) on cue to each channel you use and to the master output. is it stil there? if so it's an all round earthing fault. If it's all good through the cans (sorry...I mean headphones), try it with the amp/s on again. If the buzz is back it souds like the screen on the main audio output connecters has come off inside.
It's a quick fix, but if you have never used a solder iron, take to someone who has.

Hi,
You need to change the sound profile from 2 speaker system to surround sound. You will find this in the control panel area program.

No sound from creative t3030 2.1 speakers


the circuit board and amplifacation supply inside the sub are blow or shorted out.thus preventing any sound. the head phone jack works only because it is a bypass feature supported by the actual computer not the surround sound unit

Trouble with Speaker 5.1 +Vista + Asus P5k Motherboard. No Rear Speaker sound


Hi Perseo,


If you run through a speaker test in windows, and hear playback from all 5 speakers and the subwoofer, then your system is correctly connected, and working properly.

Vista uses a layered sound system that renders sound a bit differently than what you're used to on your previous system. As a result, it will most often refuse to project stereo sources in 5-channel surround, on it's own. it will just play them as stereo, and the bass will fill in whenever it can.

One possible way you could use to get around this, is to force the system to use all 5 speakers, through the driver. If you're using a realtek onboard card anything like mine (I have a p5k-VM board myself), this can be done by opening up the HD Audio Manager, and selecting the "Speaker Fill" option, under the Speaker Configuration" tab.

another option would be to load your media player you use to play music or movies, and see if there's an option to change speaker settings within the programs.

hope this helps!
