Question about Philips MCM298/37 Shelf System

1 Answer

Sound Two problems, right out of the box. I can not find any way to balance the two speakers for stereo sound in the room. Also, no matter what sound volume I set the system at when I turn it off and then back on it always goes to #12 which is far to loud. It is supposed to remember the preset volume, what can I do.

How do I adjust Left-Right speaker balance on Sony MHC-771 Shelf System? My speakers are mounted the way that I am closer to one of them and I need to compensate for that. Thanks Tom

If you have balance controls for each speaker decrease the vol. to the one closest to you. If you do not have separate balance controls , the one closest to you must be muffled so that the sound will be absorbed and will not sound as loud as the other speaker.

I have a sa-ak320 stereo that was left at my gf's

The 6 ohm speaker would make it slightly louder but won't solve the problem, you are right the stereo has bad audio output ic, and there is trouble with the cd player. I would use it until it goes, and get a brand new unit, not cost effective to repair.

I have ABSOLUTELY NO SOUND out of my RCA RS2625, I have checked the wiring & all(the speakers wrkd well in the living room on the SHARP stereo when I tested them). Everything is displaying correctly...

Since you all ready tested the wiring and speakers, one or more audio output ic packs have shorted and will need to be replaced, you will need a technician to check the extent of repairs that will be required and I suggest an estimate.

I have a lifestyle system with surround sound at central location and two remote rooms connected through two additional amplifiers. The central location works perfectly well. Recently, I started getting...

Probably the connection in the main room to the wirless transmitter. The problem is definitely between the media centre and the wireless sender as it is not effecting the main zone and is effecting both second zones. Multi pin connections can bend very easily if pushing the connection further in does not solve it you may need to replace the pins. why not call Bose tech?

You may have a bad stylus (needle), it can cause just that type of problem. Find a service center near you and see if they can get a replacement for you. They are very easy to replace, but very difficult to find.

Hope this helps.

No sound

Is the A/B speakers button pressed? Is the muting button pressed? Is the stereo switched to "Line In"?

Rear Speaker problems

The delay is normal as it's designed to create a spacious large room sound. The buzz however, is not. It sounds like the power supply is bleeding into the amp and should be serviced.
