my first thoughts; is the sound coming from an external separate? i.e. a cd or dvd player? does this player have its own output volume?
2nd; is it one of these that uses a ribbon lead to connect it? are the pins on both ends good? does the lead actually do its job?
i can help but i need you to try to explore and have a look at the things I've suggested and everything else. Maybe you have not connected the speakers correctly. have a close look and let me know what you find.
Their not showin it on this site, but go directly to the Sony site and look up the Sony Bravia DAV-HDX 285 system. Its an awesome inexpensive system (compare to other systems). Features everything you need including the reciever and 5 wireless speakers and 1 wireles woofer. I love the wireless stuff because your not trying to hide wires, it looks nice, and its easy to install. Hope this helps.
I doubt if the speakers are shot, you would have heard this happen.
These new amps are very savy and can detect a short on the outputs and in some cases an open circuit (no speakers connected).
Do u have a means of testing the speakers like another amp if so do this first the eliminate the speakers (disconnect the wire at the amp so u can check the speaker and cable).
Next disconnect the speakers one by one and turn the power on, if the same error code comes up the problem will be with the amp.
However that does not mean it's blown it may just be a fault with the short circuit detection circuits. If this is the case find a tech to fix the problem even if the outputs are shot it is still cheaper to fix than buy a new one.
Looks like it is to do with the rear wireless speaker. Now, my problem is over. Its gone. I first turned the reciever on and then turned on the rear speaker wirel less on. No rear chk in problem now. Hope this helps. R.
I seen the same thing when I first opened mine except my "center" speaker wan't working. It had to do with the "Mode" it was in. The Mode button at the botoom of the remote changes the speaker configuration.
There is also an option in the setup that allows you to turn on/off speakers for the system, all of mine were either Present or Small which enables them to work.
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.
I believe I understand what you're asking here. To the best of my knowledge sony puts a special type of connector on the reciever end of the speaker wire which will probably not be compatible with any other reciever brand. Depending on the age of your system, the speakers may not even be compatible with the new Sony models. Wait...there's good news though. Whatever reciever/DVD player you decide on, there will surely be speaker outputs and if you snip of the Sony connector and strip the wire a bit, you shouldn't have a problem.
A couple of other things to consider though...
A conventional standalone DVD player may not have outputs for five speakers and a sub. That sounds more like a dedicated reciever.
I have a crazy suggestion but you might save yourself some money and trouble.
-If you are satisfied with the speaker portion of your current system, buy a cheap DVD player, run the video out to the TV, the audio out to the AUX audio in on your current system and use it for sound only.
Hope something in here helps.
