Is your DVD player part of an integrated system or a separate unit? If it's a separate unit hooked up to a receiver, check your audio cables if rca type. If you are using a digital cable like optical (looks like a small tube) or coaxial digital (looks like a single rca cable) check tour sound settings on your receiver. If your receiver has a setting like 7 ch stereo, go to that, all speakers play equally and easy to hear. If your listening to a movie in a "movie" setting, you will only hear the center channel most of the time since all the talking is mono and the tv is in front of you. Your left and right front speakers are "front effect" speakers, like people walking or talking directly beside the main image on the tv. your rear speakers are for "effect" only, a car/plane/train etc going past you and behind you. they are the least heard and most "mis understood" by the average person. I hope this is what you were looking for, if not, post a comment with your products make and model #'s and be more specific as to which speakers you are referring to and I can help some more.

Hello. I've put all my DVD speakers at mee but only three of you working the other you really have to raise to hear from. What can I do to get all five at once?


Not all speakers work all the time. It is how the dvd was recorded. Get a test dvd or run the test sequence to see how it's supposed to work.

I have a genius SW-HF5.1 5050 audio system.. everything is working when i test it. but when i play any music or movie the subwoofer is not working. The sub is working when i make the speaker test..


Conected via. 6x cinch? Most of audio signals actualy are not 5.1 - so that is IMAO why your sub is not working. Try search your audiodevice control for something like LFE. Or try playing DVD which has 5.1 audio (check player settings).

Speakers are the correct wattage. Speakers are attached to stereo correctly. Can't hear music from fm broadcast or from cd player. Is this easily fixed?


Many of the current stereos and receivers have a toggle switch for analog and digital sound input, and many of the devices that are coming out like HD FM, DVD, Blu-Ray players, some higher-end MP3 players...etc. can output in 5.1 or higher surround sound. In order to control the individual speakers in a system like that though they have to send the signal out in a form of data that has to be processed by the receiver before it can be sent to the speakers.

So all that being said if you have an analog (or normal) device plugged into a receiver but it's set to listen for a digital audio signal you won't hear any sound at all. It works the same way if you have a digital device hooked up to an analog input.

To fix this just look through the manual that came with the stereo and see if there's a way to make sure it's set correctly for the device. Some devices also have settings you can alter on them so that they can send analog or digital signals to the receiver. I would say to check into whichever part is newer, and easier to work with. Once you get them talking the same language you shouldn't have any problem with it.


Good luck!

Right speaker not working. Will work during test however is not working after.


When it works with only the audio test signal that is provided by the receiver and nothing else, then that indicates that the device that is connected to it that you are trying to get sound from is not functioning properly.
First however, make sure that your balance controls are properly adjusted for matched output. Then check the connection of the devices such as your DVD player, CD player etc. If you are using digital connections such as optical or coaxial, then try a different cord...they might be damaged.

Logitech Z4 Speakers are both Dead.


The wires you put on are probably too small.  The gauge number is too high.  If the wires in the plug are okay, just get some light wire (like is on a table lamp) and use that.  It's similar to what they call monster cable but nowhere as expensive.   It's all about signal flow.

Won't Show DVD Picture or Hear From Surround Sound Speakers


The lack of video in the DVD can be isolated to the DVD players output mode, if you are using the component video out on the dvd player then be sure to follow the componet out of Receiver to the tv component inputs, if you are using the HDMI from a DVD HDMI into RECEIVER HDMI then go to TV HDMI, you cannot mix component and HDMI on this model of AVR receiver and acheive results, in other words keep the COMPONENT to Component and HDMI to HDMI signal path, the results will be similiar quality audio and video UNLESS you are doing a blu-ray source which will result 1080P quality, all other video, HD results to 1080i, about the audio, if all 5.1 test tones are satifactory to speakers but on playback modes for DVD or HD tv signals all you are receiving is LR which is basically 2 channel (stereo) you need to enable a MULTI-CHANNEL capability input, this must be a option on the DVD Player Audio MENU output, be sure it is set for DOLBY DIGITAl 5.1 or DTS outputs, be sure to have the receivers digital input enabled if you are running optical cable or coaxial digital for the audio, you will be sending a multi-channel input to the receiver when the Receivers Faceplace LCD displays 5-6 speakers. If it shows only LR or two speakers it is not locking into a 5.1 audio input.

Connect DVD Player to logitech X 540 Surround System


Bad connection on that one speaker, if you have tested the system with other equipment and it works thn you MUST have a bad connection INSIDE you DVD player. If your DVD had a whole channel out on your output amplifier I beleive then 2 speakers would not work so more than likely you have a bad solder joint inside system for DVD output

Sharp sd nx10_out signal trouble


Try all of the spaekers on the channel you know works. If all are fine, swap the speaker lines to test them. Is the input a DVD player on RCA cables? A bad signal cable from a component can be a source for problem. Connect the speakers directly to the amp(if possible) bypassing the sub box. If all works without the box, suspect bad crossover or in the self-powered boxes a bad amp.
