Re: No audio from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100 7.1
Have you assigned the audio to the optical cable? I am doing the same thing with awesome results. Simply go into your PS3 main menu under System Settings. You can then go to either audio or video options. I prefer to go the Video Options route, since it will ask if you would like to change the audio as well. In Video Options it should state something about the Video Output and to the right of that you will see you current resolution settings. Select this and set your resolution options. It will then ask you if you would like to assign audio options, and you will need to choose yes. In here it will let you assign what port the audio should be assingned to. Choose the Optical Out option and then click enter. From there you should hear the sound through your Onkyo.

Did you even get the SR4400 and speakers to the point that it runs by itself (test tones, FM)?
Master that part, then attach peripherals.
Some basics to keep in mind:
INs connect to OUTs.
Compatible connectors fit without modification.
Never test with MAXIMUM volume. If you can't hear something at medium volume it ain't there.
Regarding the DV4400: I'd advise you to run it's Component Video directly to your TV and its coaxial digital audio to the receiver so each medium is handled by the intended specialized electronics first. Run the DVD analog audio to the TV for watching news using TV speakers and without the receiver turned on.
>>>> * A word on coaxial vs spdif (optical) audio cabling - I always use coaxial if I have the choice because it is A) cheap RCA cable available anywhere in any reasonable length you want to run; B) can be extended and SHARED with other components if you have limited jacks available. You just have to be careful to make sure only one digital source at a time is turned on while using the other; C) RCA cable is impervious to problems arising from tight bends; optical is physically delicate and won
You will have to see if the DVD is rotating, then trying to rread and stops off with an errror message or a no disc display. If so try to clean the optical head within the set inside of the tray and try again. If not Your optical head will be defective and needs a replacement which will need some expert help. Get the same type and after discconnection of the solder bridge for static damage set this in and connect, test to confirm. However if your cd is reading and there is no sound but vidoe is fine, then the main sub audio processor board must be defective. Use a sigal tracer to check for audio. Another thing is to check with a different DVD, see if the sound format is right., Since you have not mentioned in detail including the make/model, I think this would help. Good day
Please open the top tray and look near to the area of the Main transformer. you will have to find it located beneath the side.
The speaker fuse also can seen here.
Use a multimeter to trace, possible to test the standy by transformer which may not have a fuse. Unless the standby works the main power will not be switched on. so check this out. Good day
gailsplaytim, That really depends on what audio inputs you have on your tv. Your Insignia has composite audio outputs (Red and White) and digital coaxial and your tv most likely will have at least composite inputs.
The easiest way to connect your dvd to your tv is just to use the composite as you will not hear the difference in sound quality between the two through the speakers built into your tv.
If you want to run digital audio into your tv for a reason such as the tv's audio output is running to another device like a receiver and you want the digital audio to transfer, you need to look at what digital audio inputs you have on your tv. The only digital audio output on your dvd is a digital coaxial. You can buy digital coaxial converters online. If your tv for example has a toslink input, there are digital coaxial to toslink converters relativity cheap online
Is your DVD player part of an integrated system or a separate unit? If it's a separate unit hooked up to a receiver, check your audio cables if rca type. If you are using a digital cable like optical (looks like a small tube) or coaxial digital (looks like a single rca cable) check tour sound settings on your receiver. If your receiver has a setting like 7 ch stereo, go to that, all speakers play equally and easy to hear. If your listening to a movie in a "movie" setting, you will only hear the center channel most of the time since all the talking is mono and the tv is in front of you. Your left and right front speakers are "front effect" speakers, like people walking or talking directly beside the main image on the tv. your rear speakers are for "effect" only, a car/plane/train etc going past you and behind you. they are the least heard and most "mis understood" by the average person. I hope this is what you were looking for, if not, post a comment with your products make and model #'s and be more specific as to which speakers you are referring to and I can help some more.
As far as with dvd and cd players in many devices they usually put a tiny hole under the dvd/cd tray.
If you open the door with a precision screwdriver and look beneath the tray for a tiny hole and insert the screwdriver into the hole you will feel a gear, push a little more and this is the "emergency release"
the disc should pop right out if it is a tray (not a front loader like ps3!)
for the audio i need some more info like connections and what cables are being used, analog or digital.
hope this helps you out.
I have a DVD player, a VCR player, a TV set all hook into an RCA RT2250 Audio/Video receiver. Everything was working fine until 2 days ago. Now the DVD player gives me a great pix but no sound. The VCR,and TV are just fine and I have checked everything out, speaker connections, mute buttons, etc. and nothing seems to be wrong. I am thinking that some thing in the receiver got fried. Is it repairable?
