First things first after you unpack your home theater system and read the owners manual check see which items cannot have anything placed on top of them to avoid causing damage to heat sensitive components. once you have done this here is a list of items you might need

  1. phillis screwdriver
  2. flat screwdriver
  3. wire strippers
  4. measuring tape,pencil,paper(so you can measure distance from component to speackers and not waste alot of wire;this will save you some money.
  5. remote(s) for sytems to be hooked up to hts.electrical tape or screw caps for elect.
  6. rca hook up wires with trhee wires on it (red,yellow and white-Y-video.R-right audio,W-left audio)
following are optional items
  1. s-video hook up
  2. digital component hook up
once you have setup the speackers where you want them go ahead and measure how much wire will be needed to reach each speaker.once you have this done hook up your rce hook upwres to the back of your t.v. (if not eguipped with rca jacks hooking up a v.c.r. to your set will solve this problem. connect cable into or cable in coaxil vcr hook up then vce to tv thru your regular coaxil jacks)connect rca hook up wires from tv or vcr rca jacks out to your home theatere system(hts) tv in jacks. then do the same for your vcr and dvd/cd player and tuner if your tuner is seperate from your hts.after doing this connect you r speacker wires to your speackers first( pay attention to the color of the wire inside the plastic sleeve some have one lighter color than the other or they may have a white line on the ouside sleeve running as one continuas line or broken up line from one end to the other) i usually place the one with the marking on it on the positive side of speacker hook upmake sure + is hooked up to + /( -to-)this will help keep distortion down to a minimum and your bass and mids will sound much more rich and your audio enjoyment will be greater.some hts will have a seperate hook up for your subwoofer if this is true on yours than make sure you get some rca jack cable splitters so that you can hook up sound from your components to the subwoofer hook up then hooke up subwoofer to sub out rca (out)side. and adjust your bass,treble and subwoofer settings to your preffarence.enjoy younew hts hope this helps.

Does the Sub have a Low- Level input? This is a RCA type female connector, what you need to do is run a Male RCA cable from your home theatre where it says Sub-OUT and go into the Sub woofer Line in. Unless you only have speaker wire inputs on the back of the Sub then take the Left and Right front into the Sub speaker inputs and then out of the Sub speaker OUTS back to your speakers.

Page 42:

No sound. The system cord and/or speaker cord is not connected. Check the connection.

The audio cord is not connected to AUDIO IN (VCR)

and/or DIGITAL IN (DBS) correctly.

Connect the cord correctly. (A pg. 13)

An incorrect source has been selected. Select the correct source. (Apg. 17)

The decode mode is not set correctly. Select the proper decode mode. (A pg. 35)

Do you think the powered subwoofer itself might have a power problem? Check its cord.

I have a Panasonic SA-HT650 Home Theater system that has stopped working. The panel code is F61

A power source problem. Means there is voltage measured at the output/speaker cable connections. Indicates a failure of the amp., or faulty power supply to it.

Just re-check all of your connections, especially speakers. And that the power ac power source from the wall is wired correctly and has proper voltage and grounding.

Your systemn is designed and built to perform 2.1 sound. If you want 5.1 sound you can do 2 things, connect another pair of speakers to the same speakerterminal as your front speakers, however this produces 5.1 stereo sound and not 5.1 surround sound.
You can buy a new system that has the proper connections.

This set will not have the proper decoding software to produce 5.1 surroundsound. sorry.
