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?

Just make sure that you are using cables that are configured correctly physically and check to make sure that you are using the correct analog or digital signal necessary. Your audio settings need to be checked out and set accordingly. Check directions carefully.
Hello ,you will want to go into the setup mode on the remote and make sure the subwoofer is turned on,it might be turned off .You can view the setings right on the front of the reciever as your scrolling thru speaker setting options.
On the back of the receiver, there could be "pre out-subwoofer". If your subwoofer has the same type cable input, that would indicate it is a powered(amplified) sub. Connect those two. If subwoofer only has red/black speaker inputs, it is a passive sub, which means spkr signal runs thru it and then to your main left and right spkrs.. Run your receiver main or front spkr left (red/black) and right (red/black) to those corresponding sub inputs, and then sub spkr outputs to each of your main left/right spkrs..
For surround, on the back of the receiver, there should be spkr outputs (red/black) noted as "rear".
Speakers have what they call an ohm rating. Your 570 watt receiver is 570 watts at a certain ohm load. I would imagine there might be a level difference between the 3 different speakers on B too. Anyway, if the speaker pairs have all different ohm ratings, or they are not the optimum rating for your 570 watt receiver, you will not get the full wattage rating to the speakers. Hope this helps.
Protect mode will kicking whenever a fault is detected.
Causes that can start protect mode are:
Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.
Bad speaker wiring. Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.
Internal fault. Internal
fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not
work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In
this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an
experienced person. If the unit is less than one year old, or if you
want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the
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.
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.
