Music center control can't find room A on multi-room interface unit

I have replaced the batteries, assured all connections were correct, went to troubleshooting guide and followed instructions to reestablish link with the interface but still the A,B,C,D LED lights revolve continuously and can't find the proper room.  
The unit is receiving power, but any button I try to press under SOURCE just beeps back without doing anything.  I can't get the unit to come out of the OFF position either.  Maybe that is the bigger problem but it has new batteries in it.

Can I connect my Samsung HD tv directly to a surround sound system that I have just bought


They are all standardized interfaces...
You will get the most from your system if you read all the owners support information.

Samsung has their own on board system that can control the volume of both units... and there are audio PROFILES you might enjoy trying out... Some sound better when listening to MUSIC, as opposed to MOVIES... or SPEACH... and are labeled as such...

One of the BETTER SAMSUNG THEATER SOUND UNITS also features an AUX input where we found it convenient to apply the
BLUETOOTH receiver for listening to our FAVORITES on our play lists!!

Pretty cool technology...

Bose lifestyle one room doesn't connect and the remote says it won't connect to media center

Look in the instruction manual and make sure that you have set the codes correctly, the house code for the remote, as well as the room code for the second room. Also check the batteries in the remote control, especially when the room as far away from the main room, the batteries need to be full in order to reach the center. I assume we talk about a wired system? When this is a wireless connection to the second room, it may need a reset, unplug and re-plug the wireless adapter, there should be a pilot light in the back of the wireless adapter, which should be green. If that does not help, call Bose.

Remote shows no response

I have just had a major problem trying to get the handheld (touch screen) music centre to communicate with the multi room interface. It took over a week to sort out by trial and error, but here is the solution :
1. Disconnect everything from the multi room interface apart from Room A and the CD player (blue connector).
2. Turn off the electricity supply at the wall (turning off any in line extension lead is not good enough - it needs to be at the wall socket). Leave turned off for at least 2/3 hours.
3. Turn back on and then leave it again for 2/3 hours.
4. Touch the music centre and you should find that it has now registered with the interface unit.
5. Connect the other rooms and input sources with the power switched on (contrary to instruction manual which advises you connect everything before powering up).
6. Test each input systematically as you connect them.

Hope this helps. I was on the verge of buying another multi room interface (I have 2 music centres and neither worked so assumed in was the interface at fault), at a cost of £200, so now glad I persevered with resetting the system !

Hi I have bought a new sony DAV-DZ310 model home theatre.I have connected all the speakers and a woofer.All are working fine except the center speaker.It is not at all working.I have made the connections...

This may not be Dependant on the Music or DVD, but with the setting on the Home Theater system. Try out all the modes - such as 2 Speaker, Multi etc. within the Home Theatre system. In one of the mode only the center speaker works.
Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Low voices loud music

You could have the outputs of the DVD or whatever you are amplifying wrongly connected. The voices are in the center channels and if you have that section's volume turned down or simply not connected correctly then that could cause the problem. If the problem has just recently reared it head and was OK previously then still check the volume controls for center channels and if that doesn't cure it try a different set of center channel speakers to ensure you haven't damaged the old ones. Apart from that perhaps the amlifier is faulty.

I can not get the Magazine to release. I see where it say's Manual Magazine realease, but can't tell what to do. Please help Darrell Mack


Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check that the speaker cables are not damaged and the connections are secure. Reduce the output level from any external components connected to the music center. Make sure the audio input cable is firmly seated in the music center SPEAKER ZONE 1 jack and the multi-pin connector on the other end is firmly seated in the Accustoms module AUDIO INPUT jack. Check the cables connecting the Jewel Cube TM speakers to the Accustoms module. To restore communication between the music center and the speakers turn the music center off for ten seconds, then on again. Check the connections for any external components. Make sure to select the correct source for the desired input. Be sure the CD is placed correctly, label-side up, in the magazine, and the magazine is inserted properly in the music center. Increase the volume. Check to see if MUTE is lit on the display. If it is, press the MUTE button on the remote control to un-mute the sound. Disconnect any headphones. Connect the FM and AM antennae. Check to see if the play symbol in the display is lit. After pressing the CD key, wait a few seconds before pressing PLAY. Make sure the magazine is properly inserted. Check to see if there is a disc in the magazine, label-side up. Display shows a flashing box for a disc that is label-side down or cannot be read. There may be dirt or dust on the CD. If so, clean the CD. Eject the magazine and try loading the CD again. A display message “E01” indicates a mechanical error. Unplug the music center. Reconnect power and try again. If “E01” reappears, call customer service.

If the CD stuck again as you stated in your earlier comments, then you need to use a small and long screwdriver to reach the notch. Now turn the media center upside down so that the "Manual Magazine Release" is in your upper right hand. Locate the two small rectangular "Open Slots" on the side. You need to use the top slot. Use the screwdriver and push the little "U" or "Y" Shaped metal upward which is just below the manual release. The magazine will come out.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
