Possibly a bad connection in the jack or bad solder on the jacks circuit board. First clean the jack with a very little wd40 or similar lubricant then plug in a head phone in and out 5 to 10 times, this should clean the contacts of the swtich in the jack, that signals the micro that headphones are being used. If that doesn't do it take the top off and look at the circuit board for and rings ir cracks in the solder near the jack. Depending on the model could be very easy or fairy difficult.

Good Luck.

Two of my speakers are not working -no sound


If they are the rear surround speakers, they will not produce sound at all times, check this with a surround sound movie that will engage the speakers. Check the settings on the reciever to be sure you are in the correct surround sound mode, and check the movie menu to be sure you are playing in correct format. Also check that wires are correctly installed, observing polarity, under terminals at both the speakers and at the reciever. I hope this is useful, but not being onsite these are just a few troubleshooting tips to narrow the problem.

No Power From My Reciever


Mook_trakzz, your device is most likely roasted and ready or scrap. Sorry.

Guest, check if the cables are connected properly, specially the cable between the device and the sub is quite easily shifted thus losing your sound.

timtlc, seems you have had some powerfailure during that night, you can try to remove the powercable for at least 15 seconds, that should reset the device.

to all, information from Philips on this device:
  • Press the STANDBY ON button on the front of the DVD system to turn on the power.
    If the device powers on at the unit and not the remote, the unit may have been turned off with TV selected as the source on the remote. The standby button on the remote will operate most Philips TV’s when TV is selected as the source. Change the source to disc or any other source than TV on the remote.
  • To completely reset the player, unplug the AC cord from the AC outlet for 15 seconds.

Sony compact AV SYSTEM DAV-S400


Hi Joey - I had exactly the same problem.

In my case, I followed the advice of others and took the thing apart. On the main amp board there is a large brown capacitor. Mine had come completely loose, so I soldered it back in place with a good amount of solder to make sure the contacts were ok. I also dabbed some solder on the headphone connectors on the same board (just follow the wire from the headphone socket to the board). Well, when I put it back together and tried it again everything worked perfectly, and it has so far remained free from the error. Hope that helps !

Panasonic home theater system pt760


Make sure you have put the transmitter for the wirless speaker in the slot on the back of the reciever, it is a slim white device that is about 3 to 5 inches long?? and maybe half an inch thick. and make sure it is put in the right way.

Then make sure the wireless speaker is plugged in to the wall outlet.

If this does not work for you it may require being taken in to an authorized panasonic service center. when one part of the wireless system fails (transmitter or reciever) they both must be replaced. they are not interchangable from one panasonic to another.
They have a code in each unit that lets the wireless speaker that came with it only work with the reciever it was sold with.

I have even seen times where the store that sells them swapped the transmitters of two units and then they had two customers very mad at them because the wireless speakers did not work for either person.

Let me know if I can be of any more help.

No sound.


Did you get sound through the entire system after plugging in the headphones? If so, the headphone jack is acting as a switch and probably has some dirt/debris that should be cleaned. The easiest way to do this is to get some electronic switch cleaner (one that contains a lubricant as well) and spray into the headphone jack. Insert and remove the headphoe plug a number of times and the problem should be resolved.
Update this if the problem returns and we'll look further.

No sound from the reciever


Plug in your headphone, if you hear music then it could be the speaker's fuse blown up, or the speaker's circuit breaker shut down. If nothing sound then possibly the strong static has burned down the audio/receiver's circuitry section.
