Question about Sony STR-V555ES Receiver

1 Answer

Sony V555ES Amp:

I can not get my Sub Woofer to come on. The subwoofer is a Cambridge Soundworks "Newton Series P500" with a control power module. It was just moved from Florida to California but was well packed. Everything appears ok but no Sub. Any guesses, guesstimations, things I should check. Da Bear

    My on off button just keeps on clicking. I took it in to get repaired and when i brought it back my sub woffer channel didn't work. It cost me $100.00 to get in and hook it all back up. I now have to disconnect it (I can handle that) and take it back in. The clicking on off button is back at it in the meantime.

Try setting your amp to "auto format decode".
It should easily be heard in this mode.
The sub will not show up on the display when in 5.1 mode. (Blue light on)
Use this with music, and use the 5.1 with movies to get a better experience from your amp.
The sub will work in 5.1 but doesn't show up in the display. Try movies with loud sounds.
Most of the pre-set sound fields are of no use to me. I only use normal surround, and AFD and love it. I hope this works for you!

Control module

The connections on the control module all depends on what outputs are available on the receiver or whatever audio component you have.
Probably the most straight forward hook up is to connect the receiver's speaker (R &L) outputs to the speaker Inputs of the module, however you may have potential outputs on your receiver that could used. What I suggest is for you to provide the information on the receiver with make and exact model number so the receiver outputs can be matched to the model.

The link is for a system module manual, and it describes all the possible hook ups based on the outputs of the receiver. If you can provide the additional information on the receiver, I will try to asssit you further.

Tower speaker subwoofer is popping

Why not just order a new woofer, unscrew the old one detach the terminals and replace with new? Then make sure your amplifier doesnt feed it any distortion to make it blow again.

Woofer has popping noise

I have the same problem with my Cambridge Soundworks CSW250. Also one of the speakers doesn't work all the time. I'm sure it's a loose connection on the circuit board. When I tap the subwoofer near the connections, the popping noise changes (gets worse, better, other speaker works,etc.).I tried taking the subwoofer apart, but the area near the connections is sealed with glue, so I cannot access it. I hate it because when it works,it sounds so good. Anyone know how to get just the circuit board and back panel?

I have used the sound test to check my CS 5.1 system. When I test the subwoofers, there is no sound. I have played CDs with deep bass, no sound is emitted from the subwoofers. I have T-500...

One step at a time. Get the subwoofer to work, THEN play music through it.

You don't describe the electronics, IF you have a sub defined, whatever other steps it probably needs to pass LFE to the sub.

Lost Speaker Sound

It does sound like a connector issue, don't you think?

What happens if you DON"T touch the connector but move the volume control on the controller?

Have you tried looking outward toward the source?

Sub Woofer Stopped working

You know what happened to mine?

I tried to shove it behind a five-drawer file cabinet and managed to crack the circuit board inside because the power cable torqued the socket inside.

I was able to shove a tiny piece of 14-gauge wire inside and bridge the disconnect between the solder joint of the center lead and one of the metal terminals of the switch; now my speakers are working again!
