Question about Zenith DVT216 System

DVT216 Audio Problem: No sound at all

Suddenly stopped working. Played audio through it the night before, then next day.. heard some popping sounds while switching modes (ie. radio). Not good to hear this from an amp. Audio is comletely dead, in all modes, and even test tones. Other functions seem to respond from remote, yet I now notice eject doesnt respond also (remote or manually). I could have the audio circuits/components repaired OR just junk it. Not sure if I shoulf pay almost $100 when I can buy a new one for similar price.

JUNK IT!!! this unit is notorious for junker style problems... I just helped someone out with a similar concern. Buy a new one of a different type! Sony even offers dreamsystems that arent expensive, arent good, but at least wont pull a buzz and deadness overnight on you... Good Luck!

Nexxtech DR30G0 - No audio - audio only works with DVD's

You might need to update the drivers in your computer. Scan it with RadarSync so that it will detect the drivers which are outdated. You can use the same software to update them all.

Trying to get my ps3, Emerson hd tv and coby DVD938 home theater all to work together

The DVD938 only has analog audio input (2.1 channel), thats why you have only a white (left channel) and red (right channel) audio connection from your ps3 to the home theatre. There is an option called PROLOGIC in the setup menu that will simulate 5.1 with the 2.1, it basically takes the 2.1 channels and splits it into all the speakers.

When switched on a humming sound comes out of all speakers,no audio can be heared when a cd is played.

check all jack plugs are in the correct places and speaker connection wires too.try turning your tuner on to test the speakers that way for sound,if sound is heard through the speakers it could be a cd malfunction.if nothing works contact your dealer.

Have an RCA RTB 1023, blue rays have played fine until I played a movie last night and the voices echoed? What causes that??

A common mistake with this type of setup can make for a frustrating solution, until you realize how silly and simple it is.. I'm going to take a stab in the dark and say you have this system connected to your tv through an HDMI cable, correct? If so, please nod! Now that you've just finished nodding your head up and down at a computer screen, have a little chuckle and now we'll continue! :-P Your HDMI cable is special because not only does it deliver magnificent picture to your tv, it also carries the sound from your player to your tv as well as playing through your surround sound speakers! So here is where the fun comes in, depending on what you may have been watching on your tv that particular day, the volume level is bound to fluctuate, because of a little know fact that not all tv channels use the same sound output level as others... Ooo you've learned something new, pat yourself on the back and here is your simple solution. Next time your watch a dvd on your system turn the volume on your tv up up up, and down down down, some times there is a slight lag from the audio being played on your tv speakers than on your surround speakers. So when in doubt, just turn your tv speakers all the way down! :) enjoy

Can I connect a blu-ray player to the hometheatre system?

Technically, yes but not so it would yield BD-quality audio or video. You need a control receiver that accepts either HDMI/DVI INPUT for 720I and above video. The digital audio in will probably suffice.

No sound

Maybe the audio amplifiers ICs are damaged.

The Bose VS2 does not pass the HDMI audio. Must connect analog or digital audio direct to the corresponding audio input on the media center. Also, verify you have loaded laster Console Software revision provided by Bose.
