Re: speaker wire connector

Yes you can try Bogue Engineering at they carry awesome connectors and for your system you need the 4,2mm size. They only cost $21 for a set of 6 and they are much better than Samsungs parts. Hope that helps.

I need the audio cable that hooks the dvd/vcr player to the subwoofer

your player output is RCA connection and your subwoofer since you didn't mention it i think its a mini jack connector or BB plug you have to costumize for that cable... or u will buy a RCA cable in the market then buy a coonector that will convert your BB plug in your subwoofer to RCA... i

what i mean is this... from your player put a RCA coonecotr it is 2 wires in your subwoofer its output is BB plug so you have to buy a connector that will make your BB plug become a RCA your RCA cable from your player its output is RCA male so again convert it to RCA female connector to so that you can connect it

I was given a Sharp HT-DP3000 reciever and all the speakers that go with it.. but I don't know how plug in the speakers into the wire there is a box for the two surround and a separate box for the right...

Do you have speaker wire if not you will need some, the wire is cheap about $5 bucks a roll your local department store will have it. You see a red and black tabs on the back of the unit and on the back of each speakers you push down and stick one wire in the hole. red will be your + and black will be - The two surround go on the back wall behind your seat.The center will sit on top of TV and the sattalite speakes go beside the left and right side of TV. and the sub sits on the floor in hidding behind something or under a table. (P.S, Make sure the wire is shaved about 1/4 of inch before you stick in the wire DO NOT plug the power cord in, intill you hook up all the speakers this could damage the unit. You do not need a sub woofer, if you have one great If not don't worry that will not damage the unit it has a internal switch to turn on/off the sub woofer The sub woofer offers extra deep bass that you can't get from the sattalite speakers.)

I have a DVD player, VCR player, TV all attached to an RCA RT2250 audio/video receiver. All was just fine until 2 days ago when the DVD player would no longer give sound and icons of the speaker system...

It's possibly only needs soldering of the voltage regulators. they are on the main circuit board heat sink (middle of the receiver and can be accessed by the bottom panel.

Need one set of speaker wires.

If the wires have just bare ends plugged into spring-loaded contacts then you can get some twin lead from radio shack or walmart. Just make sure you match the colors from the stereo to the speakers
otherwise you might not get real stereo or surround.

JVC 8 pin pinout - speaker cable

Looking at the connector, there are 3 rows of pins.
Starting with the first row closest to the alignment mark:
[Power On],[Center Speaker],[Sub Woofer]
[Surround Right],[Speaker Ground],[Surround Left]

If you are trying to connect two JVC units, you will need an 8-pin cable that has the SAME pins connected on each side. You will need to test this using a multimeter set to ohms or 'connectivity'.
There are other 8-pin cables out there like the one for apple networking, but they use a crossover pinout where pin 1 on one end = pin 3 on the other end. This is bad. JVC needs pin 1 to = pin 1.

This is a standard connector/pinout setup that JVC uses, so connecting a TH-C3 to a TH-C50 works fine. There is a bunch of intermixing that you can get away with. The only thing to keep an eye on is the power in watts that one unit sends and the other recieves. Worst case is that the speakers are quiter than expected or that you can turn the volume up so high that it can damage the speakers. In all cases, you should get desired volume somewhere on the dial.

If you are trying to wire the speaker set custom, then you will need to take note that an '8-pin' connector is actually a 9-wire connector. Along with the above pinout, you will need to add Case Ground, which is the metal circle that surrounds the pins. To make the speakers turn on, you will need to apply 12v to the Power On pin and ground the 12v source to the Case Ground outer ring.
The system takes 3 to 4 seconds to fully turn on after this connection is made. Speakers should be wired using the center pin for speaker ground and each other pin respectful to each speaker.

Is it possible to use the speaker system on a different DVD player?

I believe I understand what you're asking here. To the best of my knowledge sony puts a special type of connector on the reciever end of the speaker wire which will probably not be compatible with any other reciever brand. Depending on the age of your system, the speakers may not even be compatible with the new Sony models. Wait...there's good news though. Whatever reciever/DVD player you decide on, there will surely be speaker outputs and if you snip of the Sony connector and strip the wire a bit, you shouldn't have a problem. A couple of other things to consider though... A conventional standalone DVD player may not have outputs for five speakers and a sub. That sounds more like a dedicated reciever. I have a crazy suggestion but you might save yourself some money and trouble. -If you are satisfied with the speaker portion of your current system, buy a cheap DVD player, run the video out to the TV, the audio out to the AUX audio in on your current system and use it for sound only. Hope something in here helps.
