How to hook up a Onkyo DV-CP500 5 DVD/CD to a Onkyo AV receiver HT-R500 and a Hitchi 43FDX15BV2G005104 HDTV?

From what I find on the internet, the Receiver and the DVD player do not have any HDMI connections. Therefore, I'm using the S-Video connections. The best way to hook these components up is the following.

DVD player - Use an S-Video Cable on the OUTPUT and connect this to the S-Video Input on the Reciever. Also, connect the two audiot OUTPUTS (red/white) on the DVD player to the RECIEVER's two audio INPUTS (red/white)

RECEIVER - Use an S-Video Cable and connect to the S-VIDEO MONITOR OUTPUT and this will connect to the TV's S-VIDEO.

Speakers will connect to the Left Right Front Speaker, Left Right Rear Speakers, and Center Channel. The sub woofer needs to be connected to the Sub woofer/PreOut terminal on the Receiver.

I have shorted left speaker output by leaving the speaker unplug...the two wire shorted together and blown something, someone got an idea of witch component i should replace? thx

Probably took out the output transistors for that channel. Is the unit dead now? Usually in these models, if the outputs go, it takes out the main power fuse.

Dear Sirs, I have a Pioneer AV Receiver model VSX-817 and is connected to Monitor Audio Speakers (Fronts: BR5, Center: BR-LCR, Rears: BR1), Sub: MS309 (Mordaunt Short). I have connected each front...

Did you remember to remove the shorting link on the MA BR5 speaker terminal ..When you biwire the speakers you should remember to loosen the speaker terminal nuts and remove the shorting link plate between the HF and the LF terminals or you will short the amplifiers two channels together through the link. And modern amplifiers will take a lot of abuse at low volumes but at high volumes the protection circuit will turn off the device.

My technics receiver stop playing, and display an overload message. what do you believe the is the problem ?

If you are getting an overload problem, it indicates an output load issue. Turn receiver off! remove speaker wires from the back of the unit, this will reset the protection circuit. Now power up and turn your volume right down, If the word overload stays off it means there is a short in the wire or speaker. But! if the word overload comes on "even with the wires and speakers dis-connected" it indicates a short in one or more of the audio output ic's or transistors.

Our SA-AX7 says overload. What do we need to do?

Do not continue further. There is a short circuit in the power supply or output amplifier stage. Disconnect power. The unit is preventing a fire or further damage to the system. Also, check the speaker output terminals for wires shorting the terminals together. Otherwise, an audio repair shop must isolate the problem. More than likely a transistor has shorted in the output stage.

Audio problem when connecting to a PS3

It seems the Denon and PS3 don't play nice together on DTS. If you take off the DTS setting, then the PS3 will use DD and you'll get surround for games and movies.

Standby light blinking -unit won't stay on

When it is on, does any audio come out of the speakers? If so, you may have a problem in the protection circuits. If no audio is heard, I would first check the speaker wires to make sure there are no strands shorting across the terminals, and that you have the it selected to output audio to the speakers -- Now also be sure to check the various inputs, for instance if it has a FM receiver, select that and see if any audio comes out then as well. I don't know what the cable guy could do other than knock loose a wire or change connections on you.
