Re: no sound

If you have a wireless speaker system, chances are the transmitter/receiver parts have drifted off frequency (very common with consumer grade equipment which is designed very cheap since it only needs to work at one frequency). This problem might be fixed but you have to go inside and adjust it, if it is adjustable. More likely, you'll have to replace the entire system. If they are NOT wireless, try turning the volume control back and forth like 100 times. If the control has become dirty, this operation will clean it and hopefully restore operation. Also twist all plugs in their jacks, remove and reinsert them several times to clean those contacts, maybe even spray a quick shot of WD-40 into the jacks beforehand. My suggestion is to never buy a wireless speaker system, as you're left with perfectly good (but useless) speakers when the electronics fail. Sort of like buying a TV with a built-in DVD player. The DVD will last 3 years max while the TV usually lasts much longer. If you're buying fancy speaker electronics, go with Bose, Sony. etc. You get what you pay for.

How do I connect to TV using analogue cable ?

Some TVs have headphone output. It is 6.3mm jack or 3.5mm jack. Often located on the back of the TV if it is a LED ord LCD TV.
You probably need an audio cable that has jack in one end and two RCA konnectors in the other.

If it isn't sound you're looking for, but picture, and your TV only have SCART or component image input, you need equipment with SCART output or component output. Some SCART plugs do have separated audio and component outputs.

My tv has one sub output socket,but my active sub woofer has a red and white input sockets.what lead do i need to connect it up with?

Sounds like the output on the TV is a phono socket or a jack and the inputs on the sub woofer take banana plugs. You need (or should make up) a lead with a phono or jack plug one and and two banana plugs the other end. (phono plug/socket has two connections and banana plugs just one)

If you can provide the model numbers of the two bits of equipment I can check this for you.

When i plug in my subwoofer it has a constant hum

Sounds like you have a bad connection somewhere. Make sure all of your connections are secure. If theres anything that is a little loose you'll get that hum. You might also try replacing your cable too. If it became pinched somewhere it could cause that problem

Hum coming out of Front left/right speakers but not center

There is a chance that your wiring is producing this problem. Manufacturers don't always make equipment that is compatible with each other. The biggest problem's are "ground loops". Radio Shack has a non-electrical device that separates the common ground from all equipment. You basically connect it between your amp out's and in's - cables included. It is possible that other manufactures also make and sell this device too. It's main "Google" name would most likely be - "Ground Loop Isolators". If you are using the actually speaker outputs into your subwoofer amp input(s), check your polarity wiring again. Good luck with your system - it sounds like it'll rock when it's all setup correctly.

Computer sound output devices

The sound you get would depend on the sound card from your computer. In general you can use the standard Mini Plug output from your sound card into the Aux input of your receiver. You would need a head phone extension cable ( one using a mini plug, not 1/4 type ) then you will need a head phone to RCA Y adapter to split out the R & L channels for your receivers input. It is also a common item. Plug the Y adapter RCA side into one of the open inputs on your receiver and the other end into your headphone extension cable, then to the speaker output on your sound card.
This will give you standard output to your receiver, if the signal out is Dolby encoded, then you should be able to get the Surround sound that you are after.

Buzzing Cerwin Vega LS-12 Subwoofer

Generally, a buzz from your sound equipment indicates some sort of nearby EMI. The normal culprits and.or possible fixes that I've found are:

- Remove any other electronic devices plugged into the same outlet as your subwoofer

- If the woofer is on a power strip/surge protector, remove it and plug directly into the wall

- If there are any nearby wireless devices (cordless phiones, WiFi eqiupment), disconnect/power down them

- Try connecting different speaker wire between the woofer & the receiver

- Try turning off all other eletronic equipment with the exception of your receiver

Let me know if any of these help and good luck!

Home theatre sub

Sounds like a ground loop issue. Try plugging your sub, and the rest of your entertainment equipment into the same outlet with an extension strip (4 plug adaptor). If there is too much stuff to plug into one strip, experiment with combinations and hopefully you will find which piece of gear is the culprit.
