A quick way to check your speakers is to put the contacts from a 9 volt battery to the positive and negative speaker wires (briefly). You should hear a crackle of some sort if the speakers are functioning. If there is no crackle, speakers are bad / if there is a crackle, your head unit must have a problem.

Why is there no sound from rear speakers?


One of the buttons you pressed probably disabled surround sound

A and b wont come on at all only surround sound


Verify the main speakers are not blown or cables damaged or disconnected. If you have an ohmmeter, set it to ohms and measure across the speakers with no cables connected. You should see 3-9 ohms. Anything higher will indicate problems in the speaker(S). Get them reconed or replace defective speakers.

If the speakers test ok, remove the cables from the amp and speakers. Test your speaker cables by shorting both wires together on one end of the first cable. Connect the ohmmeter, set to ohms, to each wire on the opposite end. You should see near 0 or maybe 1 ohm. If not, the cable is open. Do the same with the other cable.

If these tests all pass, you have a more serious problem in the amp. You will have to take it to a reputable shop. Good luck!

Need help with SSI Cineplex 1500 Home Theater hook up..have all speakerwires hooked up,have 2 wire rca cable hooked up to input on system,going to output on satellite reciever, whaen I hit test tone I hear...


Hi, Hiss soundare from RCA cables.You need to reconnect again,but using a different cable for connection.

And also sometimes home theater acts that way during test mode, Check the manual and you will see how to set the home theater to see the mode that will allow all speakers to work. It's a normal thing when connecting a newly bought home theater.It the settings.Use the manual.

Take care.

Trying to install my new home theatre


Are you sure the wire is not damaged somewhere? Are you sure that you are connecting the wire to the correct terminal on the receiver? Is the speaker OK?

To test all of this, try different combinations. With Right speaker working, disconnect the wire from speaker and connect it to the left speaker. If it doesn't work, then the left speaker is faulty.

Now disconnect the wire from receiver's right-front terminal and connect to left-front terminal. If it doesn't work, you are either connecting to wrong terminal or the terminal/receiver is faulty.

At last, try using the "left" wire to connect the rigth speaker to right terminal. If it doesn't work, the wire is faulty.

P.S. The +/- doesn't matter for testing, the sound should go either. It is just needed to have all speakers connected in the same polarity, because else the sound waves would eliminate themselves.

Error 71 an the reciever shuts down


You have a speaker short. Disconnect all speaker wires at the receiver, then turn it back on to test. If you don't get the error code, your receiver is still ok. Reconnect your speaker wires one by one and test the power on the receiver until you find the wire that's causing the problem. Then disconnect that wire at the speaker and test again, this will determine if you have a bad wire or a bad speaker. If the receiver still reads error without speakers attatched, you will need to send it for service. While it's at service, check all wires and speakers for shorts with a meter if you can. This is the most common failure of all receivers, a shorted wire. Hope this helps

Hi davyboy5

Sounds like the speaker has blown or maybe a wire has come off. Sometimes the headphone socket can go faulty also. Do you have nyway of testing the speaker?

I have a philips cd player model# FW-C70/37, that has power going to it but has no sound coming from any of the speakers, nor will the cd changer open.


cd players work without use of volume controls coax cables hook up's and then by setting reciever to proper button so sound can come out
you might have had a power surge that fried your system but lets look at easy stuff first
fuses
lines in properly and connected
test on an old sterio with speaker hook ups and test your speakers by plugging in to old beat box
make sure wires are not scorched
turn on receiver fm see if speakers work change channels to sterio and mono settings if speakers start to work on sterio or mono setting chances are power surge blew out your system
hope this worked

Display shows only L and R speakers.


I think you need a digital coaxial wire instead of the composite ones
