I have a STR-K502 and i was being stupid and burnt up some of the electrical components in it. If any one has a wiring diagram or schematic that would be amazing!!!

My suround sound works w/dvds how do i get tv volume to work in suround?

Hi Charles,

To hear audio from your surround sound (stereo receiver) the audio signal needs to be managed by the receiver. You likely have your DVD machine connected (going into) your receiver, then your receiver going into your TV --- your receiver is splitting the audio to the speaker, then the video to your tv. To get your TV signal split, you need to have your cable signal going into your receiver as opposed to into your TV directly.

I hear the backgroung music fine, but I can not hear them speak.. How can I fix this? Thanks! I havesony surround system model # dav-hdx589w

Sounds like the center speaker is not working, or the center volume setting has been set too low.

a) First check power connection to speaker. If you have removable power cords on the speakers, try switching them around.
b) Then check settings for speaker setup in receiver. Check manual on this procedure.
c) Sometimes the input source may not be sending the information. Check this connection next.

I am able to get sound through my speakers when I play a DVD or when I select the TV as a source but I have to crank the volume on the receiver up almost to the max to hear either source.

NEVER turn the volume up to MAX for testing. You'll destroy something when you finally find the switch that's wrong.

Can you provide a model number instead of a dubious power spec to describe the unit so we can know specifically what controls it has?

Has it ever worked?

Does the speaker adjustment routine (guessing it has one) make tone in all speakers?

What about the onboard FM? Is that too weak? If not, you need to figure out why external sources are too low.

I'd suspect a Tape Monitor is active when it shouldn't be. Or MUTE is on.

I can't get surround sound from my theatre system

Read your manual , there is a level setting for each channel as well as a test function. Also remember most media on pro-logic mode dont have to loud sound from the rear speakers. Only a forced mono mode may give you louder sound at the rear. Regards PSP

I need help with my surround sound!!

The calibration mic thing is to balance the sound evenly on surround sound systems, it replacles the older systems "TEST TONE" speaker setup, in other words it will balance each speaker say in a 5.1 setup to adjust the level output so the listening position is not overwhemled by say the rear surround speaker overriding the front left & right speaker or the most critical the center speaker. The calibration mic uses computer tech to make it easier for the user, no sound pressure calibration is needed as with the test tone setup mentioned earlier. The wireless speaker situation could be possibly waiting for the calibration confirmation, Read any user manual information if available.

Just bought a Philips home theatre system HTS3544 low sound?

You may also need to change the speaker set up. Go to DISC setting (one of the top selections on the remote) make sure you have no Disc in the DVD player. When in this mode press setup on the remote. On this menu you will have a option to adjust the speaker volume.

I had to increase my speaker volumes to get better sound. This setting is not accessible if you try to do the set up in other than DISC setting. Be sure to check the SURROUND setting. The SURROUND button on the remote will toggle between stereo and surround as stated in a previous post.

My wireless speakers are not working i don't know why

After some research i came with the solution!!! First Turn off the home theater and turn it on again,lower the volume completely. Then on the dvd unit press the fast forward key>>>> while at the same time you press the number 3 on the remote control. A letter p is going to show oh the display. When this is happening there is a small button on the receiver on the back, you might need a thin object to reach the botton and press it. Press it once and the light will change from red to green. To finish up repeat the fast forwar>>>> key on the unit while pressing #3 on the controller and boom!!!!! the w1 will stop flashing and your surround speakers are rocking!!!!! enjoy it!!!!!!

Surround sound not working through ordinary tv

Try connecting the red and white audio cords to your system from your cable box/satellite receiver instead of your tv. Worked for me.
