I am trying to get my lxa400 to play in 3 channel mode.
I used to have the manual and cannot remember the input or output set up. Its either the sub on a/b and speakers on c/d or the speakers on a/b and the sub on c/d for the output. The input is the same as two channel (I think???)

First make sure that the TV/DVD player is on TV by pressing the Channel Up. (The channel up/down will rotate through AUX and any programmed channels.) You'll need the original remote or an universal remote that matches the Set-up function. Then press Set-up on the remote; it's to the left of Mute above Play.
Use the Up/Down arrows to navigate to Channel Setup. Press Enter to access the Channel Setup menu. Use the Up and Down arrows to select Auto Ch Programming and press Enter. Wait for the TV to scan all available channels. Afterwards, you can go back to the Channel Setup menu and choose Add/Delete channels. Press Set-Up again to exit the On-screen menu system.
Unless you have a set-top Digital-to-Analog converter attached to the TV, you will only get one of the few remaining low power analog stations, if you are close to the transmitter. This set only has an NTSC tuner. Most set-top boxes can be attached to the Antenna input and be set to Channel 3 or 4 or connected to the Aux input.
I have one of this tv model too.Just used a RCA component cables like Y,R,W hook one side to the tv Video IN INPUT holes and the VCR the other end of the cable to VCR Video OUT INPUT holes.Now just pushes a channel manual button up or down a couples for the tv go into VIDEO Mode.Play the dvd player it will work.Or try Remotes.com to buy a tv original remote.Return the universal remote.
The solution was both simple and elementary - why didn't I remember it sooner? The TV needed to be 'tuned' to the video just as it needed to be tuned for each TV channel. I selected channel 12 on the TV, went into the tuning mode on the TV and with the video playing, cycled through the TV tuning process until, Voila, there was the video showing on the TV.
Your TV is likely set for "AIR" tuning rather than "CABLE" mode. In this case channels above 13 don't tune correctly. The tuning mode is adjusted through the setup menu (it's been too long since I've seen one of these to remember exactly how the menu looks). Once you set the tuning mode for cable, all the available channels should come in properly.
But you've said you have satellite, so you should have a satellite receiver connected to your TV, and you'd be changing channels there rather than on the TV. Your TV would be staying on channel 3 or 4 (if using the satellite antenna output connection), or on the A/V input you have the satellite connected to (if using the direct A/V outputs). Am I missing something about your system?
setup of bridge mono mode:-1-turn your amplifier off.2-connect input wiring to channel(1) input--3-connect speaker across positive outputs terminals-do not use negative terminal when amplifier is operating in bridge mono mode.4-turn down (fully counter clockwise)of channel (2).
If there is no input button on the tv itself to change the input then you will most likly need a remote. so you can get a universal remote and follow the instructions to adapt it to your set then you can use it to change the input. (you can get a universasl remote for like 10$) hope it helped
You have to choose the right INPUT on your TV where your DVD player was connected. If your using the Yellow/Red/White cable from your DVD player you need to choose on your TV the input Example Video1 Video2, etc... If your using the COAX,(like cable wire) Put your TV on Channel 3 or 4. Hope this may help you.
Please post the outcome, if you need further help.
Is this TV is a COMBO?
I have this same amplifier. I have noticed several ways it will "not work" during my ownership of it. I have it connected to a seperate battery to save my alternator, battery, etc as it is a power hungry beast for how low the output wattage is. Test the input voltage to see if you have enough, one way to see this is to check the "jensen" emblem that lights up. If you dont have enough power it will appear dim and only the right side lights up. Also the amplifier will not work if your speakers are "blown" even a little bit. Ive taken speakers that wont work on my lxa400 and connected them to a higher power amp and they will work (although they will sound horrible)
If youre smart you will keep the gain under 3/4 on this amp, I see some people have found out the hard way that full gain fries the amplifier circuitry. Not an expert on electronics but it smells somewhat like melting glue or plastic.
Ive noticed a lot of people have problems with the RCA jacks as well. There are 8 jacks, in two clusters. The first one is A+B and the second is C+D.
Note: You do not NEED Y connectors on this amp!
Connect your output rcas from the deck to top left and bottom left jacks of the left cluster. This will give you left and right (a+b) output from the first set of speaker outs. Then connect an rca patch cord from the top right and bottom right jacks of the first cluster and connect the other end to the top left and bottom left of the second cluster. This will give you output from the second set of speaker outs. Remember that this is in 4 channel mode. I dont remember the set ups for 3 channel but two channel I believe is the left deck rca goes to top left of the first cluster and the right deck rca goes to the top left of the second cluster. Then you just wire the speaker outs according to the picture on the amplifier. something like this:
|(+) - (-) +|
Speaker + goes to (+) and speaker - goes to (-)
Also addressing another issue if you want to increase the wattage to your speakers you just use a lower resistance speaker (2ohm instead of 4) I would not recommend using anything over 4 ohms.
As for the high level inputs, I dont recommend using them unless you have the plugs that go with them, its a lot easier to wire your deck rears to a line converter (changes straight speaker wire to RCA jacks) or to just buy a new deck with RCA outs.
Last item, common knowledge: 400 watts does NOT mean 400 watts!!! This amplifier puts out very little actual wattage (50 or 83 per channel depending on the load)
Hope all this helps someone out there.. Anyone who knows the 3 channel setups I would appreciate it.
