Question about Zenith ZHX-313 System

Surround sound menu

I was watching a movie and I entered the surround sound menu to adjust the distances on my speakers, but I must have hit some button that I didn't mean to. The screen when blue and said progressive scan mode. I still get an image, but when i in the set up menu, the option for adjusting my speaker distances isn't there. I've looked in the owners manual but it doesn't help

Two of my speakers are not working -no sound

If they are the rear surround speakers, they will not produce sound at all times, check this with a surround sound movie that will engage the speakers. Check the settings on the reciever to be sure you are in the correct surround sound mode, and check the movie menu to be sure you are playing in correct format. Also check that wires are correctly installed, observing polarity, under terminals at both the speakers and at the reciever. I hope this is useful, but not being onsite these are just a few troubleshooting tips to narrow the problem.

The rear and centre speakers are not working but the front and subwoofer speakers are working. What do I need to do to get the three working. In the booklet it says the rear speakers might not work becasue...

From them manual Troubleshooting section:

"When listening to a CD or radio, sound is output to the front
speakers (L/R) only. Select "PRO LOGIC II" by pressing
PL II (Dolby Pro Logic II) on the remote control to use all
six speakers.
• Make sure that the DVD disc is 5.1-CH compatible.
• If you set C, SL, and SR to NONE in the speaker mode in the
audio setup of the setup screen, no sound is heard from the
center speaker and the rear left and right speakers. Set C,
SL, and SR to SMALL."

This means you might want to check your speaker settings again and make sure the Cenyer and Surrounds are defined.

When watching a DVD in surround sound movie mode

FIRST- double check that the center channel is hooked up in the center channel connection. we have all made this mistake. second if you are watching a movie through a dvd or bluray player be sure that both your audio L/R rca's or hdmi cable's are plugged in. I do not know if your are on cable or satellite? Double check the connections. Be sure that the that if your can select your sound preference turn it to 5.1 surround or matrix. hope this helps

No sound coming through

If the DVD player is seperate from the surround system and hooked up to the tv. You should have a wire from audio out on the tv to the audio in on surround sound. Some tv require you to turn off tv speakers inorder for it to be routed to the audio out. In which case you can do this in the menu.

Just bought a Philips home theatre system HTS3544 low sound?

You may also need to change the speaker set up. Go to DISC setting (one of the top selections on the remote) make sure you have no Disc in the DVD player. When in this mode press setup on the remote. On this menu you will have a option to adjust the speaker volume.

I had to increase my speaker volumes to get better sound. This setting is not accessible if you try to do the set up in other than DISC setting. Be sure to check the SURROUND setting. The SURROUND button on the remote will toggle between stereo and surround as stated in a previous post.

Can not get 3 speakers on my samsung home theater to work!

There are a few settings that will just give you a stereo output. The first one is with the Pro Logic II. If you press the PLII Mode button on the remote it will go through a series of settings from MUSIC ➞ CINEMA ➞ PRO LOGIC ➞ MATRIX ➞STEREO ➞ MUSIC. Pro Logic setting will only produce sound from the front speakers and Stereo from the front speakers and the sub. Put it on Matrix for 5.1 surround sound.
Also for speaker settings follow the instructions below.
Signal outputs and frequency responses from the speakers will automatically be adjusted according to your speaker configuration and whether certain speakers are used or not.
In Stop mode, press the MENU button.
Press the Cursor down button to move to Audio and then press the ENTER button.
In the SPEAKER SETUP, press the ENTER button again.
Press the Cursor button to move to the desired speaker and then press the ENTER button.
For C, SL, and SR, each time the button is pressed, the mode switches alternately as follows : SMALL ➞ NONE.
For L and R, the mode is set to SMALL.
SMALL : Select this when using the speakers.
NONE : Select this when no speaker is connected.
Press the RETURN button to return to the previous level.
Press the EXIT button to exit the setup screen.
It also seems that with this system, if you are on 5.1 surround but your music source is only in stereo, you will only hear stereo.

Onkyo HT-SR800 the surround speakers are not blasting

I had the same problem and fixed it by manually setting the surround speakers changing the Level Cal to +12dB. You will immediately notice a significant increase in volume and may need to back down on the dB's. What a diffence it makes!
