It's possible that you have the wrong type of HDMI cable. You need one that has Audio Return if you want to feed your Home Theater system with audio from the TV. There are several types of HDMI cable,some with audio return and some without. The two basic types (not including Ethernet) are described below - you need the High Speed version, which does have Audio Return.

hdmi-standard.jpgHDMI Standard This is the most basic HDMI standard which all cables have to meet. Cable should contain all the connections required for HD transmission, and have to deliver at least a resolution of 720p, (Video mode of 1280 x 720 meaning 720 Horizontal lines). These cables do not contain an Ethernet connection, or audio return.

hdmi-high-speed.jpgHDMI High Speed HDMI High Speed cables will support higher resolutions of 1080p. This means at least 1080 Horizontal lines, and cables rated at this specification may well support high resolutions of up to 4096 x 2160 (2160 Horizontal lines), check individual cables specifications for this data. Cables in this specification will also support a data transfer speed of 10.2Gbs (not to be confused with ethernet data speeds which are different), and a clock speed of 320Mhz. These cables do not contain an Ethernet connection, but do include an Audio Return Channel.

SOURCE: I just bought Panasonic SC-PT480P-K

Let us take things step by step.
1) If you have an AV cable ( Yellow /Red/White ) try connecting the DVD players composite out (Y/R/W) to the TV's composite in. Select AV input instead of HDMI on the TV and see if you are getting an image. This is to confirm that the DVD video circuit is OK.
2) If all is OK in step one you can try buying a good HDMI v1.3 cable. You do not need a v1.4 cable which is only good for 3D bluray players.

No sound on USB

We regret to inform you the USB connection from an Apple TV will not provide you any sound. We recommend you connect the Apple TV with an Optical cable then place the home theater on the Optical input to hear sound.

Hi. i cant get the menu screen on my panasonic sc-pt90. and it wont play thru my tv

First and most important thing is - Is it connected to your TV? If it is you might try a different lead. You haven't said if this is a reinstall or a new install. If it is a new install, you should take it back to where you bought it. If it is a Reinstall, then the most likely problems are :- cable or connectors. if a cable replacement doesn't fix it, you might try pluging it into a different connector on your TV. Also make sure you are trying to view it on the correct channel of your TV. Hope this helps.

After it was fixed for not able to show any display on the screen after turning the power on. i noticed that the wireless connection was cutting off at times, until it cannot connect. and then even with an...

I would take it back to the shop, and ask if the wireless antenna connections are installed tightly (And correctly) on the wireless module.

[ The wireless module is located towards the bottom of the laptop.With some laptop models the wireless antenna leads are connected directly to the Display Assembly, and have to be 'fished' up out of the body of the laptop.

When the Display Assembly is reinstalled the leads (Wires) have to be fished back down through the laptop, and connected (Properly) to the Wireless Module.

An example using a Dell Studio 1555 Notebook PC,

Observe Steps 13 through 18.

It may be that the operating system had to be repaired, and drivers were lost.
(Windows XP, and Windows 7 are two examples of an O/S)

I cannot get a picture from my sc-bt100 on my screen the sound is working no problem checked all leads and connections

How are you hooking it up? To what kind of TV? Best connection for SC-BT100 is via HDMI out on SC-BT100 to HDMI in on TV, otherwise you aren't getting full HD output. Make sure your TV is set to correct input source.....
