Re: Speaker Problem

Try swapping the speakers to the opposite channels (left and right) and see if the problem is on the same side. If it is, then you may have a bad channel in your amplifier/receiver.

My samsung ht 100 home theater right speaker is no talking what is the problem

It may be an interrupted speaker cable or a poor connection or a short circuit. Check this first. You can then check this by switching left and right speakers. If you still don''t hear sound from the right, but you hear from the left, then your right speaker is ok but the problem is at the amplifier (either its connections or in the worst case a burned circuit). If instead after the switch the left speaker isn't working, then it is either the speaker cable or (in the worst, but unlikely case, the speaker coil is burnt and it has to be rewinded if possible or loudspeaker must be replaced). Hope this helps.

This sounds like a short - It sounds like the speaker is working most of the time? If this is the case I would try replacing the cable they can short "intermittently" where they bend. I would also check that no frayed wires may be touching where they are connected to your amp.

The right side cord once plugged into a speaker does not produce any sound. I tried plugging the left side of the chord into both speakers and i do get sound from both speakers. Can this be fixed or do I...

From your description, it sounds like there is a break in the wire. If you can find where the break is by wiggling the cable, it can probably be repaired. Be sure to have the volume turned on low, however, so you don't damage the amplifier.

Many speaker systems use RCA style connectors (shown in the attachment). If it uses these, you can buy them at a local Radio Shack store (or online). You will also need some speaker wire (20 gage or 18 gage is best).

If you are able to do electronic soldering, you can make a replacement cord yourself. If not, and you know someone who can do it for you, it is an easy job.

That would be the most economical solution to fix your problem. If this doesn't work for you, you'll have to find out what kind of connectors are used on the cable and do an online search.

Good luck! marc_uhrey.jpg

Front left speaker problem

The best way to confirm is to switch the speakers from the left to the right with the same cable . If your speakers sound good, then we have to check the cable. However if your speaker is sounding dull then there is no doubt that your speaker is faulty. So check this interchange. Also reduction of treble is when you cable length goes beyond a limit and also is related to bad cable quality. Tryto reduce the length and you have a solution . Hope this helps. Good day

Samsung AV-R720 - front right speaker crackles

THIS RECEIVER IS JUNK. I had the same problem with my receiver and Samsung gave me a new unit as it was under warranty. 8 months later the replacement which was brand new did the same thing. Samsung tells me it is my problem now. I should have demanded another unit. the best advice I have is not to buy this product. Samsung won't help you when it breaks and it will break. Nobody seems to know how to fix it.......

Sound from 3 channels only

Sometimes what happens is that people r just confused with all wirings.Considering that you have connected the speakers correctly...Now according to u the center speaker is not working
  1. If u have a jack attached at the end of the speakers then try connecting the center speaker jack into the Right front/Right Rear/Left Rear socket at the back of the reciever.Just to make sure that your speakers r fine.
  2. Secondly play an audio cd first,sumtimes a video DVD not being 5.1 channel one confuses a lot.
  3. Assuming that you have checked the center speaker,like I asked u too,Connect it into its proper socket or better connect all the speakers.
  4. Now with the remote you check the predefined equalizer in it n keep changing that [pop,rock,jazz etc] or you might even want it to change it to 5.1 from a 3channel or 2channel Stereo.Everytime you change it listen to every speaker.
  5. Also check that you have increased all the speakers volume one-by-one.
  6. Disconnect any headphones attached.
  7. Switch on the selected source or select another source.
For further details u can check the manual.
The VGA cable of the monitor will work fine.

Yes you are right man, this problem occurs only with the cable problem, i can explain you, if there is a receiver problem means you won't get the sound its dam sure,
only if there is a cable problem you will get some noise or sound cut off with the speakers, so you please check the cables properly it will be alright.

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.

remove the front speakers cables from the rear-remove surround speaker cables from the rear and put them in the place of front speaker-run a music if you get good sound the problem in your front speakers(speaker or its cable)-if you got nothing you will have a problem in your system itself and need to fix in service center.
