Question about Panasonic SC-BT100 Theater System

1 Answer

SC-BT !00 Panasonic wireless speaker connection won't link

Illuminated indicator on the main unit is not displaying and connection to rear speakers is not operational.
Instructions followed to the letter, but as is usual with the manufacturers guide, it doesn't tell you in laymans terms how to activate the wireless speakers from the menu. I believe this is the problem.

If you go into the set up menu and go to the speakers set up - it only shows the right, left, centre and subwoofer on the screen. You need to go down to the box below these speakers and activate the rear speakers which are not shown. The wireless section will then light up w1/2 on the display at the front of the scbt100 - i had to call panasonic to figure this out and they advised me it was missing from the instructions!!!

My Panasonic SC-HT995W keeps on flashing W and the rear speakers wont work. Ive tried turning off all other wireless devices but it still persists


I had exactly the same problem. My unit worked fine until a loose power cable resulted in the receiver being turned on and off a couple of times in quick succession and then after this the a/c in light on the rear speaker was lit but the wireless link light would not come on (and the 'W' on the main unit flashed constantly). The solution for me was basically a reboot. This is what I did;
- unplug the wireless receiver
- unplug the main unit
- remove the digital transceiver unit from its slot in the back of the main unit
- plug the main unit back in and turn it on - the 'W' won't flash as the transceiver has been removed (not sure if you if it's necessary but I made sure it was producing sound to the front speakers)
- unplug the main unit again
- reinsert the digital transceiver
- plug the main unit back in, turn it on and set it to produce output/sound (the 'W' will be flashing)
- then plug the wireless receiver back in again
...presto the link is made, the 'W' stops flashing and the rear speakers work again.

Hope this elaborate reboot works as well for you as it did for me.

Just purchased SBHS100AE-K rear speakers to connect to my SC-BT100. I want to connect them wired rather than purchase the wireless transmitter, but I can't figure out how to connect the wired rear speakers...


This unit is not as flexible as traditional receivers are as far as speakers are concerned. Speakers are labeled and *must* be connected to the correct speaker terminals.

Upon reading the manual - it is quite apparent that the only provisions for rear surround speaker connections is <i>only</i> via the optional wireless transmitter / receiver hardware. The optional digital transmitter is connected via a proprietary plug on the rear of the SC-BT100. The optional receiver amplifies the received signal and passes it to the connected surround speakers. I would bet that there are no provisions for amplifying a surround L and R speaker channel inside the SC-BT100, and that it only provides a low level (like a "tape out") or un-amplified signal to the transmitter plug. Even if you were to manage to get the surround speaker connections made up there - you would not be able to hear anything from them - as there is no amplifier. The amplifier is contained in the wireless receiver, and is largely why it requires a connection to house current.

Unfortunately, I doubt you'll find a way to listen the surround channel audio from the SC-BT100 without the optional transmitter / receiver and the integrated amplifier.

You can review the manual like I did here:

I hope this answered your question.

I got a panasonic sc-bt100 from sears used but i cant connect the rear speakers i think im missing a part do you need to put something on the dvd player so the rear speakers could work?


There should be a "module" that you slip into a slot on the back of the main SC-BT100 unit...this is the transmitter that sends the signal to the rear speaker unit. The rear speakers, while "wireless" to the main unit, are wired to the separate unit that should have come with your set-up.

Wireless speakers won't connect


You try upgrade the main set to 5.1 or 7.1 channel is it?

If the wireless is green light mean the main set is recognize the wireless.

You need to setup the speaker output from main set by "Setup" button on remote control.

Can refer Operating instruction manual in main set.

Can't get sound from the wireless subwoofer


There are 2 things you can try, first ensure that the digital transmitter is fully inserted into the slot of the main unit. Secondly do you have any other wireless devices near such as cordless phone or wireless network equipment? See page 5 of the installation manual as per this picture.......
