Phillips Home Theatre System

When I initially set up my home theatre system, my DVD player, VHS player, CD player and TV all worked perfectly -- the sound was great with each different component and I had no problems at all.

Then for a reason that I cannot discern, the sound for everything except the CD player vanished. My daughters were home visiting, both are pretty technically savvy and both assured me that they had "touched no dials" on the receiver and therfore had no ideas as to the vanishing sound either.

After days (and nights) of intense dial manipulation and button pushing, I finally just turned on the sound on my TV so I could at least watch that, but have yet to be able to watch a DVD or VHS tape. I had a friend come and pour over the manual for the system and he swears that someone had to have pulled something loose but then could find nothing out of order on the back of the receiver.

Am I doomed to never watch a DVD again? Is it logical to believe that if the system was really broken, all sound would have vanished rather than just some sound? HELP!!! I am looking for any and all suggestions to my dilemma!

Did you try un-plugging all cords, turning off power to that circuit, or indivisually disconnecting all electrical cords from each component that has no sound emmitting from it. This procedures sometime or some how reboots the audio or video component to its original setting. Good luck Sir.

Is my tv audio doomed or will the home theatre system work anyways.

some devices these days have a built in volume control, try using your remote for which ever dvd player or satalite bix you use, on push the volume up button on it while you have the volume on the tv maxed out so that you will be able to tell a defference if it works or not.

Ghosting of picture from a Panasonic home cinema system

There must be a fault in the screening of the internal wiring to the scart outlet in the home theatre system. I simply changed the way the player was connected to the TV and the interference disappeared:-

1.) I used the RCA video outlet instead of the scart lead. Picture quality was not compromised. FYI the Panasonic Plasma TV I have has only RGB video input sockets at the back, so I used a scart to RCA adaptor to overcome this problem of connecting old technology to new.

2.) The surround sound when playing DVDs is generated directly from the home theatre system so there was no need to connect the audio from the home theatre system to the TV

3.) I used a pair of RCA leads to connect the "audio out" from the TV to the "audio in"on the home theatre system to provide the option of TV sound through the home theatre system.

Hooking up audio video to cable box with home theatre

From Cable Box to Input on DVD Player, from DVD Player Out, to TV in, from TV Audio Out to Home Theater Audio In.

That should work.

Will have to have the VCR on to watch cable. Plus make sure that you use A/V cables as much as possible. Coax works ok, but not as good as R/W/Y.

T v and home theatre sony bravia

As most home theatre systems offer no analogue audio input and only use the audio coming from the dvd being played the short answer is no.

If your home theatre system has a digital input and the tv has the corresponding output then yes you could me able to connect the two. Otherwise you could try to get hold of a analogue to digital converter and convert the tv's audio out to digital.
