No, this is not possible because the sub is also amping and decoding the sound, so you need an additional surround amp and processor. Check on ebay if you can find some HTS3450 speakers, i know a lot the sets are damaged and than the speakers are worthless.

The sound in my player is very faint, you can hear it playing softly, but thats with the volume turned all the way up. i re-hooked all the cords & wires and still can't get that great sound back....


Have you been using the headphone jack a lot?
If so, the contacts may be bent and not turning the speakers back on as they should..

Put a headphone pug back into the jack to see if there is good volume there or not.
If not, Houston, you have a problem.

Do you have a Speaker Selector switch on that unit?
If so... turn it off and on a few times in case of a bad connection.

Are you sure that the speakers are connected to red and black and not to black and black by mistake?

try another speaker to see what happens.

Why? no sound from the speskers at all.


There are a few things that could cause no sound and although some are obvious I'll got through them all..

1) Sound is on Minimum

2) Sound is Muted

3) No Power to Subwoofer

4) Speakers connected Incorrectly or Faulty

5) No AUDIO IN connections to TV-IN or AUX-IN

6) Incorrect Input Source is Selected (See Below)


Connecting audio from TV

When connecting the audio output from your TV to this Home Theater Audio System, you will have the sound of the

TV output on all the speakers. It will enable you to enjoy the multi-channel surround sound capabilities.


Use an audio cable (red/white - not supplied) to connect the TV IN jacks on this DVD system to the AUDIO OUT

jacks on the TV. To listen to the sound, press TV on the remote control as the sound source that you want to play.


Connecting audio from an audio/video device

This DVD system provides analog and digital audio connection. You can connect the audio output from an

audio/video device (e.g. VCR, Cable/Satellite Box) to this Home Theater Audio System in order to enjoy the

multi-channel surround sound capabilities.

Use an audio cable (red/white - not supplied) to connect the AUX IN jacks on this DVD system to the AUDIO OUT

jacks on the connected device. To listen to the sound, press AUX/DI to select "AUX" as the sound source that

you want to play.

Or

Use a coaxial cable (not supplied) to connect the DIGITAL IN jack on this DVD system to the DIGITAL OUT jack on

the connected device. To listen to the sound, press AUX/DI to select "DI" as the sound source that you want to play.


Please leave feedback

Cheers

If the cable tv has audio out jacks, or if you have a cable box with an optical audio cable, plug either the audio jacks into the RCA system or the optical audio cable, and the system should automatically simulate 5.1, through Dolby Pro Logic II. All speakers will not be at the same volume as they are simulating surround sound, not just playing the audio.

The TV will never have sound for the DVD as this system has no audio out puts. Realistically, most televisions have 10w speakers, and this system is 130w, so the TV speakers are useless in comparison.

Connection


Your TV should have an audio output which are red and white colored jacks, labeled audio out, on the back of your TV. There are also be the same inputs on the home theater system. You would have to buy an RCA cable which is inexpensive. You can then connect the TV from the audio out jack to the AUX 1 or 2 jack on the rear of your home theater system. Then select the AUX 1 or 2 input option (the one you hooked the cable into in the rear) on the home theater system, and you should be in business.

HTS3450 from Phillips, have video but no audio


I have been quite involved with a sound problem in my HTS3450 (search for the topic "sound in only 3 channels"), and I learned that when you are in the setup menu the speaker volume will be greyed out if there is a disc in the tray...remove the disc, wait for the "disc loading" dialogue to switch to "no disc", the try accessing the setup menu again. Other than that I have no advise if you once had proper function after moving the system. Check out my experiences with the cable connecting the sub to the DVD/receiver in my postings. Good luck.

It seems your device is thinking it has no speakers connected, reconnect teh cable between the device and the subwoofer and make sure it is connected properly.Als chekc all speakercables if they are connected properly and correct (+ on + and - on -).

You need to run a cable from your Sky (satellite box) box's 'Audio Out' jacks to the sound system's 'Audio in' jacks. Make sure the Sound system is set on the same function as where you plugged in the cables (RCA type, red & white) on the back of the sound system. (example: if you used the 'Auxilliary' jacks, set the sound system on 'Aux')

If it's sound 'from' the TV as well as the sound system you'll need to connect another set (of red & white RCA) cables from the Sound System's 'Audio Out' jacks to the Television's 'Audio In' jacks. This should give you sound from both the TV's speakers and the Sound System. Good Luck!

HELP: Onyo Remote Does Not Recognize Receiver when using Cable


Since you have the cable connected to the reciever thru the HDMI, you may have accidently changed the input source of the reciever from HDMI or digital to analog.

When you have the reciever set to listen to the cable, check the input mode and make sure it is set to use the HDMI or digital input and not the analog.
The rca jacks are analog, and they worked, so I think you have just solved your own problem without realizing it.

Let me know if this works and if so a good rating would be appreciated. Thanks and have a great day
