Panasonic BT100 & sh-fx67 kit surround sound not working

I have a panasonic bt100 bluray system and the add-on sh-fx67 wireless surround sound speaker kit. The bluray player and the wireless transmitter appear to pair ok (green light on the transmitter W2 symbol on the player) and I have configured for 5.1 surround in the setup but nothing comes out of the rear speakers... I've been through the manuals numerous times and I am at a loss... please help!

    Not sure what you mean by this... I have checked the switch on the back of the wireless transmitter to make sure it is set for 5.1 surround as opposed to 7.1 surround. Is this what you meant?

    Thanks for your post. Unfortunately, I can't find an A or B button on the front of either the BT100 BluRay player or the SH-FX67 wireless transmitter. Am I being really dumb...? Can you give me a clue where to look?

    In my case the green light on the speakers receiver is on, but no W1 lights up on the Main theatre system.
    I have checked and re-checked the instruction books.
    Where do I go from here? Please help someone!

I had the same issue with the green light coming on on the shfx67 but no w thingie sign. I went into setup and then onto speaker and changed it from 3.1 to 5.1 and ran a test screen...the speakers were working after all.

Now it works for Bleu Ray, but cant seem to get the SKY TV working in surround...thinking Panasonic need to help me here...there instructions are way to cpmplex for something that is supposed to just turn on and play...!

Hope this helps...

    on the front of the reciver, you will see buttons with A and B on it, make sure there both turned on

  • Fred Haines Jan 11, 2009

    sorry, i kinda misread your origonal problem, i thought you had a bluray player, and a reciver,, if you have the kind of wireless system that has a sigmal sender, and a reciever(witch is the wireless speakers, if that is the case, you will need to plug the signal sender into the video output on the tv

Hi I've got a Panasonic sc bt100 home cinema could someone tell me how to get the surrounds to work without having wireless speakers I've noticed inputs on the back of the system but it doesn't work ?

Not quite understanding what your problem. The surrounds simply connect to the rear connections of the amp. The rears will only play when the source material has surround info.

It may be favorable to simply purchase a rear wireless speaker system all by itself and use the existing system for surround sound applications. Monoprice . Com has some units are a good price.

My sa-bt100 doesn't send audio trhugh the hdmi. I want to hear it through the TV not the external speakers. How do I configure it? Thanks

What TV audio is available to the SC-BT100 that a) isn't available to the TV directly; and b) would sound better on the TV?

I'd look on my cable box for the basic analog audio out and send it to the TV for those times you just want to watch the news without hi-fi. I'd also send the best Video (HDMI) directly to the TV because passing it through the receiver just adds cabling and opportunity for malfunction.

The best audio should go directly to the Panasonic. Period.

Look around fixya for the most common video problems - not passing through the receiver unscathed.

Just purchased SBHS100AE-K rear speakers to connect to my SC-BT100. I want to connect them wired rather than purchase the wireless transmitter, but I can't figure out how to connect the wired rear speakers...

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:

I hope this answered your question.

Can u program Panasonic SC-bt100 without remote ?

Not that I know of....the remote has options that aren't on the physical unit so programming must be done with remote.

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.....

I got a panasonic sc-bt100 from sears used but i cant connect the rear speakers i think im missing a part do you need to put something on the dvd player so the rear speakers could work?

There should be a "module" that you slip into a slot on the back of the main SC-BT100 unit...this is the transmitter that sends the signal to the rear speaker unit. The rear speakers, while "wireless" to the main unit, are wired to the separate unit that should have come with your set-up.

Transfering contacts from phone to KCB-BT100

yeah, this sucks, but a guy at Car Toys said that the Kenwood's are notoriously difficult when it come to the Bluetooth... through your phone, you have to disconnect from the BT100, but keep your Bluetooth "on", and then send each contact one by one. Talk about pain in the ___, but that works.

Now, my problem is that the address book comes and goes; sometimes it's available, sometimes not.
