    have you tried to see if there is a short in the wires? cause it sounds like you may have a bad wire or something just isnt connecting right

Make shure you have the correct polarity ,black negative and red is positive ,also make shure you have enough of the end of speaker wire stripped , if that is all good then remove the speaker from your system and hook it up to a regular stereo so you can test the speaker , if the speaker still does not work then you have internal problems in that speaker , if the speaker does work then you have problems with your sorround channel , if both the rear channels are not working it is highly unlikely that both speakers are defective so you probably want to consult the manufacturers warranty and let them either replace the speaker or speakers or the unit that supplys the power to the speaker , hope this helps you and good luck, glenn

    you can also take the system back to where you bought it if it,s still under warranty and have them replace it , The systems that have dvd player and amplifier all built into one unit have become popular but I prefer the seperates when it comes to home theater ,most people today already own a dvd player so you can hook that up to receiver type surround system that comes with sub woofer and speaker set up , I just purchased a pioneer system that comes in a box with subwoofer and center chanel ,front speakers and 2 rear surround speakers and everything is color coded for ease of hooking up ,but in your case if you,ve already did the speaker check thru the test tone and independitly you should see if the manufacturer will send you a replacement speaker , anyway theese manufacturers are usually pretty good in their customer service and they also have support lines you can call in the back of your user manual , again Hope everything gets straightened out ,Glenn

Hi, guys my LG Home theater 357 stopped working, there is no more out put from the speakers and the eject button no longer respond just over night. pls i need help...


I think if you configure everything from software and check out everything i.e. plug in, plug out cord. If everything is okay then the problem is hardware/device. As a result, you need to go to repair center. Thanks

My rear wireless speaker from one side is making a loud noise.


the problem is the transmitter. it is generating undesired signal. in all wireless communications if the transmitting end creates oscillations other than which is desired - they are termed noises. ur receiver unit happens to pick up one of those noises and is able to amplify it. a qualified tech will be able to identify the frequency range and filter that out on the transmitter stage. if the warranty covers it- replace!

Lifestyle 30. sound stops, i unplug and plug back in and works for short time and quits. unpllug and plug back and works a short time and quits.


What you describe, sounds like a speaker short. Are you using the Bose wiring with their ends and no cuts in the wire? (splices) It's not too uncommon to extend or shorten a wire. The fastest way to find a short is to disconnect your speakers at the speaker. Be careful to keep the wires separate if they are not on plugs and turn on. If it cuts off (power) or says (protection) on the display that lets you know your speakers are ok and you have a short in the system or a wire. Next, disconnect wires at the sub one by one and test until it causes the system to cut off or short. Leave that speaker disconnected from the sub and test with all others connected. Now you've located the channel that has the problem. First just connect the wire again to the sub. if it cuts out, run a new wire from the sub to the spkr, for testing purposes make it a short wire if possible and test. If you need to use a Bose plug at the sub to test spkrs go buy one at Bose, don't cut your factory wire just yet. If a new plug works then cut and replace. Make sure you use electrical tape not scotch tape or duct tape. If it works fine, test the new plug on the old wire and see if it works. If it does your done, if it doesn't, run a new wire to the speaker with the new plug on it. If after all this and it still doesn't work. Sounds confusing I know, It's just process of elimination, that's how we do it in the field. If all your speakers are disconnected and it still cuts out, it could be the sub or the receiver. Take it to a Bose store and they can check each piece for functionality. If it needs repaired let Bose do it. Hope this helps.

Magnavox MRD-510- when I plug it in, it just makes a clicking noise and the power button keeps flashing. When I unplug this unit it continues to click for 5 seconds. Only owned for about 5 months and now...


Protect mode will kick in whenever a fault is detected.

You get the unit not powering up, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that is the protection switch that keeps shutting down the unit.

Causes that can start protect mode are:

Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

Internal fault.
Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.

Regards.

Wireless speakers


You should have two pieces for your wireless rear speakers setup. A. a wireless card inserted behind the all in one receiver. B. the receiving box that will connect to the 2 rear speakers.Also,you should not have any obstacles to block off the line of site for the rear speaker receiving box to the wireless card.
Best way to test it is too simply leave the rear speakers connected to the rear speakers receiving box on the floor near the a/v receiver with dvd player built in.Play a dvd and see if you have sound coming out from the rear.

I had a similar problem. Believe it or not, I randomly switched which ports the speaker wires used to connect to the receiver and kept playing with it with music going until all the speakers were making noise.
