Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Surround sound won't work

Gents, I have a Sony digital audio/video control center. Model # STR-K840P. I cannot get the surround sound to work. I have tried everything as far as trying to program the unit to make the surround sound work. But still nothing works. I am sure it is just the correct sequence of button pushing. Do you have an instruction booklet for this model. Or any words of encouragement. The unit used to work, surround sound and all. For some reason it just stopped producing surround sound. thanks Bob Stout

SOURCE: Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound

Connect the PS3 to your TV with the hdmi cable and to the surround sound system with a digital optical cable, then set your PS3 to output sound through the optical port (through the sound options menu) and you're good to go!

SOURCE: Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound

I just finished setting up my system last night and was facing similar problems with sound/video from my PS3. The only option I could get working was to have the HDMI cable connected from the PS3 to the TV and then connect the Optical cable to the receiver for sound. I was under the impression that HDMI handles sound and video but for whatever reason the PS3 does not agree.

I have DTS sound and fantastic picture now through my PS3, hope this helps.

Cheers

SOURCE: I have a Digital Audio/Video

Check the back and front of your system. The AUX input may be either:
- two red and yellow holes (known as phono L R)
or
-a 'headphone' jack input hole

the cable might not have been supplied with the system. Also, the cable you need may not connect to your iPod through the large connection, it may actually connect through the headphone jack.

So, you may need either:
-a cable with a headphone jack on both ends (one for the system and one for the ipod)
or
-a cable with phono L R on one end (for the system) and headphone jack on the other end(for the ipood)

Hi i am a new member and i have a problem with my str-k840p it started to have a protect mode flashing and I can't hear the at all the tv or speakers. What could i do i check all my connection and they...


Hi,
Protect display indicates that receiver is in protection mode due to some serious problem in output amplifier section and most probably any output channel output chips got shorted out.
Protection mode turns On to avoid any further damage in receiver. If your Sony STR-K840P is under warranty then call numbers written on warranty documents to ask warranty cover and if unit is out of warranty then either Sony service center or local repair shop will help you to get it fixed, it is not user level repair.
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

The STR directs sound to the center as instructed by its speaker setup. You say the center does not work on calibration. Is it defined?

Prove another speaker does or does not work on the center output. Then we'll know if it's the receiver or the speaker ensemble that has the problem.

Have you checked the manual for this "
There is no sound, or only a very low-level sound is heard from the center/ surround. "?

Can't get surround sound when watching tv


your RCA on your tv is acting like its in mono..it may be a problem with the jacks.  alternatively..you can buy a splitter and split teh side that sounds stronger (L) or (R) with a male to 2 female spliter out of the tv then back into l/r input on your reciever... It wont give you surround stereo...but it will soudn a whole lot better.
