Question about Sony HT-DDW750 System

Sound from all speakers problem

I have hooked up the surround per instructions. I verified + and - are hooked up right. I ran the test tone feature, and sound comes from all speakers in the correct manner. DVD sound plays fine. However, when playing regular TV, sound only comes from the left speaker. No sound can be heard from an other speaker. This includes the subwoofer. I am at a total loss as to figure out what is causing this. Sound will not work from all speakers when not in PLII mode. Please help

Re: Sound from all speakers problem

I would suspect the lead from your tv or video and swap where are you feeding tv signal to amp from.more than likely faulty lead or socket at this point.swap around the leads and see does fault transfer to the opposite channel.keep with it sounds like set up problem of some sort,.

My sound on Onkyo HT R 548 stopped working

If this is a Surround Sound System you can check channel and audio tone levels using the remote. Check remote for a receiver button followed by Test button. Check manual for test instructions.

Surround sound doesnt work. When i switch the surround on there is a buzzing/ hum from the speakers. The sub has a hum in analog mode. I try to switch to theater, club, church etc. And still a hum was...

Back up, open the manual and set it up with test tones to verify the hardware before trying anything else. Then onboard FM. Then external sources (according to their manuals).

Hum/buzz solutions are common on the internet. Do some web searching for "audio system hum" to find somethign that matches your symptom.

No sound from rear/ surround speakers on Bose V20

Yes, very easy and cheap if you get it from the right place. Fiber Optic going from the output of the device to the input of the receiver. If your lucky enough to have an input/output fiberoptic in your tv, run the fiber from the device to the tv input, fiber the output of the tv to the receiver so not only are you getting the device full surround sound, but you'll also get better TV surround sound for those that are made with Dolby pro logic II sound. (pretty much all the newer movies and shows)

I can't get surround sound from my theatre system

Read your manual , there is a level setting for each channel as well as a test function. Also remember most media on pro-logic mode dont have to loud sound from the rear speakers. Only a forced mono mode may give you louder sound at the rear. Regards PSP

No surround sound

Since it is new and just purchased, you really should return it for a new one. If you have connected all the speakers right, which you have since the test tone plays in all of them, there is a problem with the receiver. Don't wait too long or they may insist that yu take it for repair. You usually only have a short ime after the purchase to get an exchange. Some are 7 days and others are as much as 30 days. But it does need to be repaired, it is not the way you set it up.

I need help with my surround sound!!

The calibration mic thing is to balance the sound evenly on surround sound systems, it replacles the older systems "TEST TONE" speaker setup, in other words it will balance each speaker say in a 5.1 setup to adjust the level output so the listening position is not overwhemled by say the rear surround speaker overriding the front left & right speaker or the most critical the center speaker. The calibration mic uses computer tech to make it easier for the user, no sound pressure calibration is needed as with the test tone setup mentioned earlier. The wireless speaker situation could be possibly waiting for the calibration confirmation, Read any user manual information if available.

No dialog sound when watching DVD's

The problem is that your center channel is not functioning correctly.  Dialogue is typically routed to the center channel only in 5.1, so if you don't have a working center channel all you will get is sound FX and background sound.
Go through all your settings, verify that they are correct.  Verify that your center channel is working properly, and wired to the correct output.
Test the center channel speaker and I feel confident you will find something amiss.
