Question about Samsung HT-DS1000 System

1 Answer

Connect Issue? Hello,  I am having a problem with my entertainment system playing properly with the sub woofer.   I have everything hook-up as instructed but whenever I turn on the DVD player the red light on the sub woofer goes off thus I believe it is not on.   I can hear sound, but it is only the music of the movie that is playing.   The vocals can be heard VERY low.   Do I need another cable?  Or is their another way to fix this?

Sub woofer and rear speakers cut out

Check the speakers with an OHM meter to be sure that they are not bad. Switch the speakers so that the front is the back and see if the issue goes away. If it does not then it is the amp. It could be the temp sensor or overload sensor

Are we talking about an external add-on sub not supplied with the HT-DS1000? If so, please identify it.

The interconnecting cable itself is a 13-pin DIN.

Radio plays for short time and shuts off ive tride every thing

The problem is most likely the amplifier circuit. It is probably over-heating and the speaker relay is turning off. it is not likely that it can be diagnosed properly on an online forum, since it takes some troubleshooting to be certain of it. Does this system have the amplifier built into the sub-woofer? If I had the model number I could probably give you much better advice, not all home theater systems have the exact same problems. Each different model of every brand have there own unique problems specific to that model number. There are some universal problems, but this is not one of those easy to figure out universal type of problems. I work at an authorized Samsung service center and have experience with repairing these type of systems, so if I were to get the model number I could offer you a better solution. But it is likely that it will need to be serviced to determain the exact problem. A couple of the Samsung home theater systems that have the amplifier in the sub-woofer must have the entire sub-woofer replaced because they do not offer the parts and service data needed to do a component level repair.

One way to determain if the sub-woofer has the amplifier built into it is if all the speaker wires for the sattelite speakers all connect to the sub-woofer.

Sometimes a bad speaker can cause the amp to get hot and shut down, you can check these very easy yourself.

First, while the system is turned off, disconnect one speaker. Any speaker is OK to start with. After one speaker is disconnected, turn on the system and play it at medium volume. If the system stays playing and doesn't turn off the speakers as it did before, the speaker that is disconnected is probably bad. Take it to a service center and get it checked to be certain. Most service centers will do this for free as a courtesy to their customers, it only takes a minute to check.

If the system turns off as it did with all speakers connected, you then need to reconnect that speaker and disconnect one of the other speakers and go thru the proccess again. Make sure to do all of the speaker connecting and disconnecting while the system is turned off.

If you end up disconnecting all the speakers one at a time and the system still shuts off, it could be that the sub-woofer speaker is bad or the amplifier is bad.

If you can give me the model number of your system, it would help.

When watching tv

Is the sound different when you play movies or is it the same regardless? It may be a problem with your audio cables from your system to your TV. If you are not using HDMI, Optic, or Coax cables you will not be able to get the surround sound to function properly. It also may be a settings issue or poor connections on the wiring. Need more info.
