Question about Denon AVR-4800 Receiver

1 Answer

No home theater sound

It appears that there is no home theater sound when the house system sound is on. I know the connections work because at times the home theater system works beautifully. The system switches between components for the home system. I reinitialized and reset, but, no change. It doesn't matter whether it is analog or digital, there is still no sound from the home theater.
I am using a heavy duty surge protector and battery back up and a fan so I don't think it is overheating. Besides this can happen immediately after the home theater comes on with the receiver. In the past, the home theater can just "pop on" after the system has been setting.
The sound is so good, I hate to start over with a new receiver.

    The unit powers up just fine. It doesn't power down when switched between sources, but the sound goes away. I appreciate the thoughts, but I don't think they apply. Thanks

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.

RCA RT2760 home theater. I have Insignia blu ray player connected. The surround sound works for the ads on the disc, but when the actual movie starts, there's no sound.


Generally the adds are in conventional sound, not Dolby Digital or any superior sound. So when the movie starts the sound switches to the better sound, which you appear to have not connected it up or have not get the right sound settings selected. So you hear nothing. The Blue Ray player might have to have a either an RCA cable connection, or more likely an optical lead to hear the Dolby Sound types.

What kind of TV do you have?
I have found one of the easiest ways to connect surround system is to connect all your accessories (ie. Wii, Cable Box, VCR, etc) to the TV.

Next find the AUDIO OUT on the TV and connect this to the TV or AUX input on the home theater.

Tune the Home theater to the Input that you connected the TV to. This should play the audio through the home theater for any input you tune the TV to.

Note: make sure to turn the TV volume all the way down otherwise there will be some distortion due to the delay between the TV and the home theater.

Good Luck,
Robert

No sound though home theater when watching tv


There is an orange button on the remote, half way down in the middle. I belive it has orange lettering and says something like "TV-?" press that, and the sound should start to come through your speaker system. You can then use the original remote that came with your TV and turn the sound off on the TV to use just the theatre system. I noticed that if you use the TV speakers in conjunction with the theatre system, that it echo's.

Surround Sound Not Playing For TV Programs


Greetings jdm12,

I can understand your problem, I have some what of the same issues with my home theater setup when watching events. One of the only suggestions I can make is adjusting the "Dolby Pro Logic II Mode". After reviewing your owners manual it appears you should be able to change the mode by pressing the PL II Mode button found in the lower keypad on your remote. It appears the options you should have are Music - Cinema - Pro Logic - Matrix - Stereo. You may want to try Music or Stereo when watching your events. In Stereo setting it should provide sound out of the front speakers and sub-woofer only. In Music, there are more processing that is done so you could hear more then just the front speakers.

I hope this makes your next your next PPV Party a big hit!
