You might be able to fix it yourself. Input jacks vary some you can use a pin or straighted paper clip to push the broken cable out. Remove the screws on the back (you my need to disconnect the speaker). If the jack is accessible (some are sealed ) using the clip or pin try to push it out from the back side of the jack.
If that doesn't work you are looking at about $50 to $70 replace the jack.

Connecting sansui subwoofer to back of tv panasonic


Hi,
I assume that the sub-woofer is "POWERED TYPE" ..otherwise if it is a PASSIVE type you can not..
So,if it has a power plug for 110 VAC it is "powered type" ..Than you need to find out the AUDIO output 2xRCA plugs of your TV on the back and connect it to the 1x RCA input of Sub...you need a "Y type RCA cable " to make 2x stereo output of TV into the 1x MONO input RCA jacks for sub..Than while listen TV your sub will work too but you need volume adjustment once on the sub controls (if it is a Powered )

Take care and if it succeeds please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up

Hope this helps!

How do i connect my home theater system so that i may use the speakers to here my cabel channels


Hi,
How to connect your cable to your home theater system depends on several factors. So what I'll do is try to cover all of them.
If your home theater RECEIVER has various types of inputs then there will be several ways to do it.
If your cable box has various types of outputs there will also be several ways to do this.
Let's start with the basics.
All cable boxes that I have seen have Red colored and White colored (RCA type) stereo outputs. This also applies to any stereo or Home theater system which will have multiple inputs of the same type and color. If you connect a cable between the cable box's Stereo Outputs and into the cable (or satellite audio inputs of the Home Theater system. Then Switch the Home theater input to the same input, that will work.

If the cable box has an coaxial digital output ORANGE "RCA" TYPE PLUG) and the receiver has the same, connect a single RCA connector between the two. Then go into the input menu of the receiver and change that to digital as opposed to analog. (The red and white ones)

If the two pieces, Receiver and Cable box have optical connectors (little black square door with a red light behind it). Use that and set up the Receiver to receive a digital audio input.
With either the coaxial or optical connections used. You will have full surround sound when it is being broadcast.

Another possibility is that the receiver has discrete RCA input connectors for Left and Right Front, Center, Left and Right Rear and Sub Woofer. Again, if the cable box has these, have at it.

The last one is really simple.
If your equipment is relatively new there will be an HDMI connector on the back of the Receiver. If there is one on the cable box, which often there is for HD cable. Get a single HDMI cable and connect the two together.

I think that is all I know about the subject.
It might be a good idea to print this little article I wrote for you and use it as a reference while looking at the back sides of your home theater receiver and cable box.
I hope I've been a help to you. Please let me know.
Best Regards,
Mark

How do I use my Bose Subwoofer with a different receiver??


Hi,
You can use Bose Sub woofer with any receiver. There is a set of "Audio Input" jacks on the back of the Bose. Connect the plugs on the one end of the audio cables to the "Audio Input" jacks on the back of the Bose.
Connect the plugs on the other end of the audio cable to an "Audio Out" jack on the receiver.
If the "Audio Out" jacks do not match with the plugs of the audio cable, then you need to use adapter or modify the audio cable.
In case "Audio Out" jacks are not provided on the receiver, you may take the audio output from headphone socket.
hope this will help you.

Thanks...!!

Subwoofer to receiver hookup


In general, there are two ways to hook up your sub-woofer. First using the high level outputs from your receiver ( speaker output from the front R & L speaker terminals ) run a set of wires from the outputs to the speaker inputs on the sub-woofer, you do this in concert with the speaker wires going to the front R & L speakers which you then attach to the R & L speaker outputs on the sub woofer amp. Note that the sub woofer doesn't power your front speakers, the connections from the sub amp are just a pass through connection where the signal needed by the sub is parasitically taken from the inputs.
Second is via a low level output from your receiver / amp to the low level input on your sub amp. This is normally done via a RCA type of patch cable and connected to the sub woofer RCA jack on the rear of the source receiver or amp, Next run the patch cord to the sub amp an into the RCA jack input. IF you have a right and left input, use the Right input.

I suspect you have a bad cable, a poor ground or a bad
power supply inside the speaker amplifier. The amplifier
(inside the sub-woofer) could also be defective.
===
1) Bad cable or connector:
If the (braided shield/outer tube) of the coaxial input cable is
not grounded, the cable will pickup line frequency "hum"
from surrounding power lines, house wires, lights and
appliances.

This hum is then amplified by the speaker's amplifier
causing the constant bass sound you speak of.

Because the hum frequency fundamental is 60 Hertz in
North America, 50 Hertz in Europe, you hear it coming
mostly out of the sub-woofer, because the midrange and
high speaker circuits filter it out.

Check the input connectors, cable at both ends, wiggle
the jacks at a low volume setting to see if it changes.

Make sure that you are indeed using a properly shielded
coaxial cable.

A coaxial cable consists of a thin inner conductor, surrounded
by a flexible tube made up of a braided metal shield, which
must be grounded. This prevents hum from being picked up
by the sensitive amplifier inputs.
===

2) If the power supply within the sub-woofer's internal amplifier
is defective, the the power supply hum will also get coupled
into the amplifier and speaker with same results as above.

Power supply hum is typically twice the line frequency,
i.e. 120 Hertz, but not always, depending on what
component failed: Rectifier diode, filter capacitor, or
the voltage regulator.

3) Ground loops:
When you run very long cables between the source and
destination of an audio signal, multiple ground paths (must)
exist between the two points in space, creating complete
loop circuits.

Power line hum from the environment can (will) induce
heavy AC currents around these loops, creating a voltage
gradient across these cables, and in-between the end
devices.

Once again, this AC hum is coupled into the amplifier inputs.

Ground loops become a problem with cables over 10
feet long, and an astronomical problem for stage audio
engineers. To avoid ground loops, they must break
the circuit's continuity by using isolation transformers,
optical isolators, and/or differential input amplifiers.

So how long are your cables?

Most house stereo components are only designed to
handle 6 to 10 feet of cabling max.

30 feet is already asking for major trouble.

4) Feed back oscillation: This occurs when the output of
an amplifier is fed back to the inputs with a round trip
gain greater or equal to unity. The tiniest little electrical
disturbance is then amplified and re-amplified, over and
over again, usually at one preferred frequency, causing
the typical (ear-splitting) microphone squeal or howl.

In your situation feedback and/ loss of original signal
could be the result of mis-wiring the input cables.

Note that this is NOT as silly nor as unlikely as it sounds,
because many computer audio cards and even some
home stereo systems have re-configurable inputs and
outputs.

SOFTWARE configuration decides which jack at the
back does what !!!!

On my computer, for example, the Realtek audio driver
tries to automatically figure out what cable is connected
to each jack (usually it gets it wrong)

Using the Realtek control panel applet, I can then
manually re-configure the gray jack as input,
the green jack as bass, pink jack as center.... etc.

If this situation also applies to your system, please check
the software configuration. Connecting an output cable to
an input jack will certainly cause a lot of HUM and not
much music.

5) Finally, don't rule out internal sub-woofer failure. Unlike
the passive stereo/hi-fi speakers of days gone by, modern
multi-channel theater systems with front, center, rear and
sub-woofer speakers are internally amplified, with active
frequency cross-over filters and special effect/ surround
sound capabilities.

Usually, the large sub-woofer contains most of the
electronics, amplifiers and filters.

It feeds the other speakers, and it is controlled by
an external volume control module which can be separate
or built into one of the tweeters.

These sub-woofer electronics are prone to poor design,
overheating and early failure. (Even fresh out of the box
like yours)

If you cannot get it working, take it back to the store,
and make the NICE salesmen **** with it.

Good luck

Subwoofer jack not working


Try using another cable. Such as a spare Component cable. As a general rule if the cable is large in diameter it will do the job. You dont have to buy a Woofer cable specifically, as stated above a Component cable will be more than enough.

Installation Help


This means that you have purchased a three piece home theatre system. Two tweeters and a sub-woofer. Assuming you are using a Stereo player (Tape/CD/DVC)you have to connect the Left Output of the Stereo placer to the Left Input at the back of the Sub-Woofer and the Right output to the Right input of the subwoofer by cables. Then take tweeters and connect them to Right speaker and Left speaker output at the back of the sub-woofer ( note if the speakers are marked L/R, then connect them to the subwoofer output accordingly. In case you are using a 5.1 player, then only connect the front right and front left to the Right and Left input at the back of the subwoofer. You are and you can now start playing your music or movies and and you will get theatre quality sound.
