Question about Sony Dream System DAVDX155 Theater System

DAV-DX155 wont output audio to anything other than supplied spkrs

I bought a receiver for my living room and decided to use the speakers from the DAV-DX155 with it. After some wire cutting and stripping I was happily enjoying my new receiver. The cutting and stripping were needed because  the terminals on the speaker cables are only compatible with the DAV-DX155. In fact, the device does not have any alternative audio outputs, only the awkward jacks for the supplied speakers. But no matter, I have a crimping tool. So then I decided that I could connect the DAV-DX155 to the TV in my bedroom and use it as a simple DVD player. I joined the aforementioned terminals to a regular speaker cable with RCA terminal on the other end and connected that to one of the audio inputs on my TV. When I turned on the device, "PROTECTOR" and "PUSH POWER" flashed on the display. After checking and rechecking to see if my wiring was faulty I concluded the problem was that I was not using the supplied speakers. This much was confirmed by a Sony online chat support specialist (and I use the term very liberally) after he tried to convince me that the reason was impedance mismatching. As if we were living in early 20th century! Does anyone have any idea about what I can do?

Some times PROTECTION means a fan has stalled or burned out.

I am sorry for the bad news. You may be able to get it repaired, but it may be cheaper to buy a new one. Check to see if your warrenty is still in effect, if it is dont tell them what happened just tell them the thing stopped working.

Can't get XBOX 360 to have audio through surround sound speaker


Make sure that you have the RC Cables (red and white) plugged into the audio ports that coincides with the component video inputs. If that wont work then try plugging the audio and video cables into the inputs for the satellite, since that works. That way you can isolate the issue. If it still wont work try using the XBOX 360 HDMI cable. That has both audio and video.

Using the speakers to listen to other componest of my stereo system


Yes, you could have two complete systems crossing over to each other but the sharing will only be in Stereo either way and you will have to decide which one you want to be the Home Base for the other. I would think the deciding factors would be 1) Do you want multiple channel sound; 2) Are your existing speakers far superior to the DAV-FR1's?

DAV-FR1 in charge: If your receiver has one unused Tape (*) or Line Out pair, run a pair of RCA cables to the DAV's SAT Audio In and when you want to hear its attached program sources choose SAT on the DAV. You could also leave the 4 speakers in place or arrange them to augment 5the DAV and hear them all.

* If you use a Tape Line Out pair DON'T select the Monitor on the source or it will de-select any non-tape source going Out to the other Receiver.

Your receiver in charge: Run the DAV's Audio OUT (L/R) jacks to any Line Level input on the receiver (AUX, Tape In).

If whichever direction you wish to use doesn't have a spare Line Input or Output get yourself a pair of RCA cable splitters of the appropriate gender (one male end / two female ends) and share the jacks. Just make sure whichever source you're NOT intending to hear has something inactive selected.

You could even have both. but you would have to take care to NOT induce a circular loop by having each selecting the other as a source.

No speakers?


if you are trying to get rid of all the speakers & just hooking up the sound to the tv speakers, what you need to look for on the back of the dvd system is you need to find an audio out. I know the is one or two audio input, but I do not think there are any audio outputs. I don'e think you can get sound out of this system without your speakers hooked up. sorry.
