Question about Sony DAV-IS10 System

1 Answer

Volume Problem I just purchased this system and my volume control goes from 0 to 70. However, I must have the system up to about 45 before I can hear anything. I must have the volume up to 60 before I feel like it is just right. If the system is up to just about 68 is it considered loud. Is this an indication that the unit is defective? Or am I just missing something?

I have a ge gtd 120 home theatre surround sound.for some reason, my volume is stuck on one level.. I haven't had a remote for it for a while, just used the knob to adjust the volume.someone plz help!

Unless the system has some kind of automatic volume control on it, that can only be adjusted by the remote. I think you might have a faulty volume/tone control circuit. These days many amps have a single IC that will control the volume. If that goes the volume can get stuck on one level. Since the control knob you are turning is simply sending a signal to that IC. So if the IC has died the signal is not being received.
If you want to repair it yourself just follow the wires back to the board from the volume control. You should see a large multi pin black box that if your lucky is marked on the board volume control.

That sounds like an electrical fault to me, especially when the volume goes up without touching the volume control. Take it to your TV repair place.

Volume goes up by itself

First, check your software firmware version and see if there is an update. If available read your manual how to do a firmware update using your USB port, if you don't have a manual, check for their online manual and firmware updates. I had a different problem but the firmware update solved it. Another tip to increase the depth of your bass, while doing the adaptiq process, cover your bass speaker with a pillow, this will make your bass more deeper. You need a second person to cover your bass module with a pillow. in this way, the adaptiq process cannot hear the bass sound and it will increase the bass. You might need to do this several times until you get the desired bass sound. If you have not setup using adaptiq, your better off not using adaptiq, the sound is much better. Hope this helps.

It may be the remote itself and not the tv, have you tried purchasing an inexpensive universal remote?

Hello, I have an RT 2870 RCA surround sound system. When I turn it on all I hear is static and its not until I crank the volume up to around 25-30 before I can hear the audio. How would I fix this problem?


Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control (volume pot??) may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through defect or idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

I want to be able to adjust the television volume and not have the home theater system over ride it

you wont be able to controll the volume from the tv to controll your reciever, but you can have sound come from both, with different controlls.
on your tv (not sure what you got) in your tv menu select : TV SPEAKER TO ON, and then the sound will come out your tvspeakers as well as the reciever, but to be brutally honest you dont want to do that.
that will cause an echo effect and will drive you nuts
