    My SWA -4000 finally linked up to my unit. The "Link" light stays blue, the "Rear Chx" is gone from the display, but I still don't get sound to the speakers. I swapped with working speakers & still nothing. What am I missing? Can anyone help?

    My system was set up and worked fine for a year. This week, we moved the whole system to the opposite side of the room. Now, we cannot get the SWA-4000 unit to connect to the main unit. Blue light blinks for a minute or so, then goes to the red standby light. The main unit intermittenly shows teh Rear Check error on-screen. 0-1-3-5 does not work. I've tried the initial setup method and the reset method in several different orders, none of which have worked. If anyone has any advice, I'd appreciate it.

Can i buy a 3d blue ray samsung dvd player and plug my HT-TZ315 unit speakers to it?


No. A stand-alone 3d player will not have an amp in it to power the speakers. You would be better off purchasing a new 3d surround system.

Hi, my problem is only the front 2 speakers work i have tried all the speakers in the front 2 connections of the unit & all speakers are working but none when in the rear, center, & sub woofer unit...


Without knowing which receiver etc you have... make sure your "mode" is set to 5 channel, Dolby Pro or similar. And even then, make sure your source is 5 channel. What are you using for an input cable? It needs to be able to provide 5 channel. Standard RCA stereo type cords do not. You need either optical, "coax" or hdmi. Lastly do you actually have a 5 channel program? Many older movies, and standard cable boxes only output stereo, not 5 channel.

All 5 speakers work on test mode but on surround sound the left and right rear speakers are not working. How can this be?


Hello Ruby,

This is because your receiver is not in the correct surround sound mode for the number of channels being sent from the audio source, i.e. your TV or DVD player. It is likely your receiver is set for Dolby Digital (DD). You will need to switch your receiver to a Dolby Pro Logic (PL or PL II) setting to get audio from the rear speakers using your current audio source.

If you are unsure how to do this, please reply to me with the brand and model of the receiver. Some receivers have a "Surround Mode" button on the front of the unit or the remote. If you want to include further details of your setup, I can also give you some advice on attaining the best audio quality with the equipment you are using. You may be able to get Dolby Digital surround by changing some audio settings on the audio source or using a different connection.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

My samsung dvd player keeps flashing RCHK


If it's the home theatre system i think it is that error refers to the rear speakers in which the wireless connection is either unstable or not working at all. make sure to give more info when asking for help.

Just connected the SWA-4000 wireless amplified to my samsung ht-z310 - the readout on the display is "Rear Chk" there is no sound from the rear speakers- any help is appreciated


swa-4000 wireless module isn't compatible with htz310. You need to buy Samsung's swa-3000 to work with your htz310. I had the same problem. It tells you in your owners manual under conectivity where it explains about hooking up a wireless module(pg.55-60). I hope this helps.

Samsung SWA-4000 Wireless connection problem - Not connecting with main unit


I have had the same problem with the wireless unit and thought the same, it didn't work. The way to fix this is simple. You need to do the 0, 1, 3, 5 on the remote and turn on the home theatre system on the main switch on the front panel (as I was doing this on the remote, and it was failing). The blue light should then stay illuminated. If not just switch the main on/off button again, and it shoud work.

SWA-4000 doesn't adquire signal of HT-TX500 Home Theather


I was having poor audio from the back speakers and didn't even know it; intermittently I'd hear them jump in volume, so myself being a little adventurous, decided to push the ID set button on the back, totally losing my ilnk... after digging and playing, I figured it out:
1.) Turn off the Head (main) Unit 2.) Power on the wireless receiver, being sure it is away from routers, other BT devices, etc. 3.) Push the "ID Set" button on the back of the wireless device and hold it until the lights on its front panel flash. 4.) Point the system's remote control at the Head Unit and punch in 0135.  Its light should turn from red to blue. 5.) Perform step 3 again. 6.) Power on the head unit.
Should link up.
Might be some redundancy there, but it works :)
Also I found that after a few cycles It seemed to work better (perhaps cycled to a better channel?)

Onkyo TX-SR500 Dolby Digital problem


I just read over the problem you were having with your Onkyo TX-SR500 receiver. It sound like the unit needs to be setup for all five channels.Sence your symptom says the diplay shows Dolby D3/2.1. According to the owners manual with the remote control look for speaker setup whin the button is pressed the current speaker setup will be shown in the display. Press the preset/adjustment<> to change the current setting to five speakers. the listening mode will automatically change according to the number of channels you selected. Hope this helps.
