I had exactly the same problem. My unit worked fine until a loose power cable resulted in the receiver being turned on and off a couple of times in quick succession and then after this the a/c in light on the rear speaker was lit but the wireless link light would not come on (and the 'W' on the main unit flashed constantly). The solution for me was basically a reboot. This is what I did; - unplug the wireless receiver - unplug the main unit - remove the digital transceiver unit from its slot in the back of the main unit - plug the main unit back in and turn it on - the 'W' won't flash as the transceiver has been removed (not sure if you if it's necessary but I made sure it was producing sound to the front speakers) - unplug the main unit again - reinsert the digital transceiver - plug the main unit back in, turn it on and set it to produce output/sound (the 'W' will be flashing) - then plug the wireless receiver back in again ...presto the link is made, the 'W' stops flashing and the rear speakers work again.
Hope this elaborate reboot works as well for you as it did for me.
This unit is not as flexible as traditional receivers are as far as speakers are concerned. Speakers are labeled and *must* be connected to the correct speaker terminals.
Upon reading the manual - it is quite apparent that the only provisions for rear surround speaker connections is <i>only</i> via the optional wireless transmitter / receiver hardware. The optional digital transmitter is connected via a proprietary plug on the rear of the SC-BT100. The optional receiver amplifies the received signal and passes it to the connected surround speakers. I would bet that there are no provisions for amplifying a surround L and R speaker channel inside the SC-BT100, and that it only provides a low level (like a "tape out") or un-amplified signal to the transmitter plug. Even if you were to manage to get the surround speaker connections made up there - you would not be able to hear anything from them - as there is no amplifier. The amplifier is contained in the wireless receiver, and is largely why it requires a connection to house current.
Unfortunately, I doubt you'll find a way to listen the surround channel audio from the SC-BT100 without the optional transmitter / receiver and the integrated amplifier.
You can review the manual like I did here: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/SCBT100.PDF
I'm having this same problem; it worked all ok in the beginning then one day it didn't and no matter what I try it doesn't seem to connect. Similarly im getting the W1 flashing and even when I take the receiver and move it closer (even within a few feet) it still wont pick it up. I've removed the wireless home phone and baby monitor from within the room without any result. I cannot think of anything else that could be interfering. Any advice or resolution would be much appreciated.
You should have two pieces for your wireless rear speakers setup. A. a wireless card inserted behind the all in one receiver. B. the receiving box that will connect to the 2 rear speakers.Also,you should not have any obstacles to block off the line of site for the rear speaker receiving box to the wireless card. Best way to test it is too simply leave the rear speakers connected to the rear speakers receiving box on the floor near the a/v receiver with dvd player built in.Play a dvd and see if you have sound coming out from the rear. solutiondoct
Hi...I found your post while searching for the answer to the same question! I thought I'd let you know what the tech support person told me, which worked immediately. There is a button on your remote that says MUSIC with SRD above it. Push this button, while surround sound speakers are on, and they should work instantly. They are quieter than the regular speakers, so you might have to turn up the sound. Hope this works for you (if you are still having troubles, that is). The manual was no help with this subject. So frustrating!
I have finally got my rear speakers to work. wireless internet or cordless phones will stop the speakers from working, i switched off my wireless internet and hey presto speakers work fine, i just cant have both at the same time.
