Make sure surround speakers enabled in menu, select surround mode on receiver from a media source that is recorded in surround sound or the receiver can produce surround from.

Test with an surround sound media ie. Blu-ray or DVD)_. Disconnect the front and all other speakers that are working to see if sound from the missing speakers are heard. If this doesn't work then start by tracing and checking all the wires from the receiver to the speakers for bad/shorted/open connections.

Should all the surround sound speakers be working when I am watching satelite TV? Mine do not, just the front left & front right have sound.


All speakers should be working. The display on the Sony unit will tell you which speakers are enabled with a box illuminated and each speaker that is decoding with the speakers abrevation eg SL for surround left also illuminated. If these are not displaying then you need to check your playback mode. If play back is set to 2CH you will only get the front speakers. Try setting play back to AFD ProLogicII, Movie, or Music. If this does not get the speakers running then check the speaker configuration in the setup menu. It should be set to 5.1, if not set it and press enter to save it. If this is setup correctly then try the level settings in your menu. Each speaker has a setting that can be adjusted up or down to effect the loudness of the speakers. If this does not do it then check the connectons at each end of the suround speakers ie, at the receiver and at the speaker.

Back surround speakers dont work.


If the display reads 2 chan then that means stereo, and the sound mode is not in any type of surround processing. For your surround speakers to operate you must select a surround sound mode.

Only 2ch sound on sony strde898


I understand that you have tried connecting different audio source to the Receiver as some of the audio source will output only 2 channel audio. I hope you have tried changing the Input mode and Input selector to get the surround sound.
Please disconnect the speakers with the receiver and clean the edges of receiver and speaker cables using solution like alcohol and try.
If the issue persists, please interchange the rear speakers with front speakers and vice versa and check if audio is coming to make sure that the speakers are working fine.
If the audio comes after replacing the speakers but not from surround speakers, the receiver requires service.

Not all the speakers are working despite ensuring the cables are


There is a button that says -Mix 2CH - make sure it does not say Mix 2CH ON, or you will only get 2 channels when watching DVDs. This Panasonic, as well as legions of other home theater systems, are more limited than they seem. The SC-HT500 can give you surround when watching DVD's on the unit, but you will not be able to get full surround for your TV, because the Panasonic does not have the right digital inputs.

Bad sound through HDMI


Is it only in Games or Movies?

Try checking the cables. (obvious I know but it must be said).

On the XMB (Cross Media Bar), go to settings on the left. Scroll down to "Sound Settings"

Choose "Audio Output Settings", then "HDMI", then "Auto"

If that doesn't fix it then choose manual and the most basic outputs first;
-Linear PCM 2ch. 44.1KHz
and
-Linear PCM 2ch. 48KHz

Depending on your surround sound setup your could get away with other options as well. Fist determine if your setup is 5.1 or 7.1, DTS or Dolby Digital. Then start with the lower KHz settings and work your way up.
