I want to use my TV's speakers with Samsung ht320z not surround sound.How?


You have to hook up the audio cables to the TV from the DVD stand alone player. Red and White is audio and Yellow is Video. The player will play movies and the sound should go to your TV speakers. If not you will need to set it on the TV in the audio source to play from your speakers on the TV. John

Surround sound for DVDs.


If your DVD disc supports it, you will have to enable surround sound from the DVD, as well as the speakers.

Pioneer xv-hdt520 stereo dvd/cd player cant get it to play cd,s works fine on the dvd part of it and all discs are read by the same reader it just tries to start then boots the cd out no matter which...


I would guess this model is over two years old. not sure how much you paid, but target sells a decent surround sound blue ray system for just under 300. i got it. it works great, streams netflix movies an even has an internet radio system in it.

if you dont wanna do that, and have made sure that you have tried brand new cds, another option is to play cds on a cheap cd player hooked into your surround sound. it can go in any input on the back with an adaptor you can buy at radio shack, or many of them have an input in the front.

they used to make a cd lens cleaner, not sure if they still exist. it was a tiny brush hooked onto a cd that you put in and it cleaned up the lens.

bottom line is that it makes little to no sense to me that it would play dvds and not cds. i would assume that they both use the same lens to read the device.

My home theater system plays cds but will not play dvds, what can I do to fix it, makes a scratching noise when i put dvds in it, but plays fine with a cd.


There is something wrong with the DVD drive assembly inside. If you're brave, take it apart and check on what is making the noise. Also, try using a q-tip to clean the laser head if it's accessible.

If that doesn't help, it's time for a new DVD player.

This is why I always recommend people buy a home theater system without a DVD player built in. The DVD player is the weakest link, and stand alone DVD players can be purchased for as little as $25 depending on if you want upconversion or not.

If you cannot get the DVD player working in your surround system, just replace it with a stand alone DVD player, if you can, check to make sure there are audio inputs on the back of the receiver. If there are no audio inputs on the receiver, you will have to get the entire surround system replaced. If so, purchase a separate DVD player and surround system.

How to get sound through speakers with tv and not just dvds


Just wire your TV audio out to one of the receivers (DVD player) audio in and select AUX when you want the TV sound to play through the surround sound. You also might want to turn the volume down or off on your TV to get the full surround sound feeling, but that's your call.
