This should not be a problem. Cut off the plug off the wire oppisite the sub connection. Turn on the sub and touch each wire till you hear a buzz, that should be your source wire. Connect up an RCA plug with the ground of course, and you should be set. Good Luck

Display screen not working.

Either the display itself (electro-luminescent) is defective, or the cables/connectors hooked to the display may have come loose. It should not be too much trouble to open up the case and have a look inside. Go for it.

Sub Woofer

Most likely there is a cold solder connection on one of the circuit boards, or a connector, or any anything else in the audio path.

It is suggested to not use the unit until it is properly serviced. Depending on what is being effected internaly from the cold solder connection it is possible to have some damage.

Intermittent sound with Panasonic SC-HT900 home theater system

I will get back with you on this tommorow with more information when I can get the technical data I need from where I work.
These units are know for the problem you are describing.

If you have to connect all of your speakers to the subwoofer, then yes, you can replace the subwoofer and it will fix your problem. I just don't remember right now if this unit is the one with the amplifier built into the sub woofer, but I think it is.

Since you paid another repair center you really should take it back to them to fix it right. They probably did not test it long enough to verify if they fixed your problem.

I know it is a real pain to have to take it back, more so if it is far away, but the problem you are having is nothing you will be able to fix yourself unless you have some decent electronic troubleshooting and soldering skills.

Get back with you soon,

Help with SB-WA920 sub woofer PLEASE!!!!

Sure, you can use transition between SB-WA920 system cable with other output. So, you use them as speaker. That's it.

Panasonic SC-HT920

One option is to set the cross over to the sub so it knows when to send the low frequency to the sub and not the front speakers. 120 is a good setting. This can be done either via a know on the sub woofer or the setup screen of the main unit.

good luck

Sc-ht500 system cable

You cannot wire this system separately, since it is very difficult to separate the power cables from the others which carry the audio parts.if in any case , lets suppose, you could wire the dvd player separetely, you will have no audio since all the audio frequencies are transfered in this cable to the sub woofer and from there to the satellite speakers.
It would be useless to wire it even if we could as there would never be any audio, only video, no matter what disc you use as the only way the audio is comming is throught this system cable to the subwoofer. Actually its the worst idea to implement in a home cinema system, but well, this is old panasonic.. :)
