Re: TV sound only thru front and sub woofer speakers only
This might be happening because the audio format for surround is not supported by the channel or affiliate of the channel that you are viewing does this happen on all tv channels or is it on just a few? if all sound while playing a dvd is proper and in working order than there must be an issue with the sound and or format of sound from the tv source. maybe more information would help me decipher this

I am having the same problem. I also have the combo dvd and theater system. I also read that the sub woofer is supposed to have a volume control on it but its not there. The only way to control volume is to connect to coby dvd player. This dvd player is beyond terrible. DVD looks bad and sound is miserable. I hooked up xbox 360 to my samsung 52 inch, then on the outputs of my tv into the inputs of the "TV" section on the Coby Sub woofer. At this point great sound quality comes from the xbox and all speakers, but the volume is uncontrollable and is blasting loud. Tv volume control does not work either. I am stuck like chuck and have not found a solution. This has to be one of the worse purchased i have ever made because i am forced to use a terrible DVD player just to get some sound through the speakers. I dont understand why on the speaker systems you buy without dvd combo has a volume control on subwoofer, but on the combo subwoofer doesnt have it. Just terrible. I will continue to look online and try and find a solution other than smash it to bits.
So when you aren't using the sub woofer there's not enough bass, so you need more out of the other speakers. Chances are the front speakers are set to "small" in the receivers menu, change it to "large"if your front speakers have a 6 inch woofer or larger. Note: If you leave the sub on, the input signal to it will be greatly reduced when the speakers are set to "large". Hope this helps.
THIS UNIT HAS NO SUB WOOFER AMP IN IT. THE ONLY WAY TO OVER COME THIS IS TO HOOK THE LEFT AND RIGHT FRONT SPEAKERS STRAIGHT TO THE SUB WOOFER AND THEN GO FROM THE SUB WOOFER BACK TO THE INPUTS ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT FOR THE FRONT SPEAKERS. THE SUB WOOFER THIS WAY WILL EXTRACT THE BASS AND THE FRONT WILL RECEIVE THEIR PART. THIS SOUNDS CRAZY AS HELL I KNOW BUT THAT'S HOW I GOT MINE TO WORK. THE OUTPUT FOR THE SUBWOOFER IS USELESS AND PUT THERE FOR YOU TO HOOK UP AN AMP FOR A SUB WOOFER. EVERYTHING HAS SHORT COMINGS, AND THAT'S THE ONE FOR THE AX-720.
Sounds like it's just in 2 channel stereo mode, only 2 speakers working out of 5 and a sub, look for a selector switch for switching to 5.1 surround, as far as the no video problem try replacing the cable for the video connection.
