Wireless subwoofer does not connect with speakers

I cannot connect the wireless subwoofer to the main speaker system. I've made sure that there is no wireless interference with the system, made sure they are fairly close to eachother and the power outlets. I've read the manual and tried the two different ways to connect the system and still no luck. Any help out there?

    same problem. Now instead of the little light staying either green or blue - blue means connected, its just white. what does this mean?

    I get a regular light on the sub (i'm assuming it's blue or white). But I can't get the thing to pair. the light never flashes or changes color. HELP!

SOURCE: HTS9800 Wireless receiver not working

I have just bought one of these today and have had the exact same problem. No rear sound and no blue light on the receiver box.

Solution:
What philips don't tell you in the manual and on the support site is that the receiver box has a switch hidden under a white sticker; next to the left of the right speaker connection. The switch has 3 positions which can be selected. I had tried each switch position and power cycled the subwoofer each time until eventually i got a blue light on the receiver box.

You may also need to select the correct channel on the control box by pressing the "sound" button for 5 seconds on the remote control.



It took me quite a while to try the different combinations until it finally worked. I can't imagine that Philips would have sent the system out without testing the wireless partnership first, so I am guessing my wireless network could have had something to do with it. (forever the optimist).

I did expect the subwoofer standby light to have gone off or changed colour once operational, but this just seems to stay on no matter what state it is in.

SOURCE: Sound from 3 channels only

Hi, first of all did you verify with the manual if it is possible to run a testsignal through all 5 channels?
One of the most common problems in this case is the basic settings of the device. If you don't have the manual, mostly you can download them from manufacturers website. Chances are that for some reason the setting is set 3.0 stereo (also known as 3channel sound) which is always the 2 fronts and the centre speaker.

Best thing to do it is take a DVD with THX on it and run the THX setup, it will send test signal to all channels.

SOURCE: what is easylink connection? Wireless? HDMI?

The Easylink is Philips name for HDMI CEC which allows multiple HDMI devices to control each other with one remote.

As for the sound...it looks like there is only one audio out and it's in the form of coaxial cable which isn't very helpful.

What I would suggest is that you tap the audio coming from the input. So I'm assuming your TV is connected to a cable/dish box. Use the audio out from that to power your headphones or external speakers. This will likely mean you can't use the HDMI or will need a splitter, but at least it will solve your issue.

Philips DC912/37 will not pair with the subwoofer. I have had the device for 2 years, and the subwoofer stopped working recently, and now it will not pair with the tuner.


This worked for me. Try it and it should work for you all as well..;-)

Frequently asked questions See all FAQs Question How do I get the main unit to recognize the subwoofer? Answer Wireless connection will set up automatically when you switch on both the main unit and subwoofer.
Sometimes you may encounter the problem that the main unit does not recognize the subwoofer. Try the following process to solve the problem:
  • They are heavily interfered by other wireless home appliance such wireless network, TV etc. Move the subwoofer to another place, the main unit will auto detect & recognize it.
  • Switch off the main unit and the subwoofer and then switch on them again. The main unit should recognize the subwoofer automatically.
If neither of the above works, try to pair with them manually.
  1. In standby mode, press and hold the 090518075138_27245.gif button on the main unit (PAIR flashes on the display screen.) to activate signal transmitting.
  2. Press and hold the PAIR button on the rear of the subwoofer (You will find the LED indicator on the subwoofer flashes in blue and green alternatively) to activate signal receiving.
The wireless connection will set up automatically and the main unit should recognize the subwoofer now.

Double check your connections at the transmitter. Swap inputs to see if the popping moves to the other speaker. Popping usually means blown, however......

How do I add an outdoor wireless speaker to my Sony home theater system that has WIRED speakers?


An outdoor wireless system operates from a base unit that is connected to your sony using RCA cables. If your system has a "Front Main" rca output on the back (red and white plug in points) use those. If you dont have a main output look for a "Tape 2 Monitor" or "Rec out" Those outputs will allow you to listen in another area where the wireless speakers are when the same thing is on in the main area. If you want to be able to listen to wireless speakers without the main area on, your system needs to have a "Zone 2" output.If you need further clarification on this, post a comment and I'l help some more. Hope this helps

SC-BT !00 Panasonic wireless speaker connection won't link


If you go into the set up menu and go to the speakers set up - it only shows the right, left, centre and subwoofer on the screen. You need to go down to the box below these speakers and activate the rear speakers which are not shown. The wireless section will then light up w1/2 on the display at the front of the scbt100 - i had to call panasonic to figure this out and they advised me it was missing from the instructions!!!

Brookstone Wireless Outdoor Speaker with Bose 123 System Problem


AUX usually refers to an INPUT, such as a CD player, etc. No signal comes out of a standard AUX jack, unless it specifically says "Aux speaker output". Instead, look for another speaker output jack, such as remote speaker, B speakers, etc. You may only have one set of speaker output jacks, in which case you would need to connect your wireless speaker to the speaker output jacks along with your main speakers, or buy a little speaker selector switch box to switch between main and wireless speakers. There's usually no harm in connecting more than one speaker set to the same outputs, though it is technically not recommended. In the real world, just don't crank it too loud and you'll be fine. The wireless speaker MIGHT run off of a standard line output also, if the wireless speaker has its own power amplifier.

Can't get sound from the wireless subwoofer


There are 2 things you can try, first ensure that the digital transmitter is fully inserted into the slot of the main unit. Secondly do you have any other wireless devices near such as cordless phone or wireless network equipment? See page 5 of the installation manual as per this picture.......
