I agree with sounds like your getting electrical feedback current from the speakers causing the system to shutoff. try just one speaker or alternate speakers...there is something called impedance that you should check into as well. too low of impedence can cause amp failure/shutoff. e.g. connecting surround sound speaker up incorrectly can easily cause an impedence problem.

Why can't I turn off the mute function?

Usually, mute is turned on and off at the remote. Press once to mute, press again to turn sound back on.

Connect Apple tv to Philips LX700

OPTION 1 (using remote):

Press the system key on the remote,
find the digital input option,
choose optical,

OPTION2: (Using LX700 button)
"program" button on the front panel for 5 seconds,then press LEFT or RIGHT button to choose DIGITAL INPUT,and Press "program" button again,then change coaxial to optical by rotating VOLUMN control on the front panel. then just confirm by pressing the "program" button again and wait for 5 sec to quit menu. Now switch OFF and switch ON receiver again.

Now make sure the source id DISC IN (ie., digital input ).
Your LX700 should be picking up optical signal!!

It worked for me and i hope it works for you to as well.

Sony DAV-DZ170 Home Theater - Looking for a solution to the "muting on" issue with this system. We just purchased this system, installed it and for TV, radio, and movies it plays for about 3...

Three minutes? If it's that predictable we may get to the bottom of this.

First, I'd hide remote as that is where the command to Mute can originate. Also suspect any other remotes or infrared sources in the area including sunshine, security systems and garage door openers.

Settle down for some watching or listening and set everything the way you like. Then physically block the front of the unit with something opaque like cardboard and see if it self-mutes. If it doesn't, uncover it and wait. If it happens only with the 'eye' exposed you need to track dow nthe source of the signal and either eliminate it or isolate the system from seeing it.

Intermittent Sound

I was having this same problem. I realized that the fan inside was not running so I placed a small fan over the vent in the back of the sub unit. I tried this out and it worked. I then replaced the internal fan with one i bought at radio shack for a computer and have had no problems since. Hope this helps.

Click track

Two things to check.

First in the synch/midi screen make sure the 'mode' option is set properly. The options are REC and REC/PLAY. This tells the metronome (click) when to sound, either just while recording or both when recording and playing back.

The only other thing I can think of would be to make sure that in your monitor selection that the mute button is not pressed. Pressing the 'mute' button does not mute the headphones, just the monitor output.

Best of luck.

Buzzing noise

If the sound goes out completely, try hitting the mute button (to mute it) and then hit it again (to un-mute). I've found that this work-around typically gets it working, at least.

You need to plug the red and white cables from the audio out of your TV or the audio out of your cable box - you can't go from an in to an in
