Depends on how you intend to hook it up otherwise you will get no sound from the speakers if you delete the DVD player from the circuit. The speakers require a power source and this is provided via the DVD player.
You cannot connect those speakers up to an amplifier or an AV Receiver because the speaker connections are not compatible. The connections to the speaker wire where they plug into the DVD player would have to be changed because there needs to be a left and right wiring connection for each speaker.
So if I were you I would not mess with the system and just route everything via the DVD as it is designed to be done.
You need to replace the IC Amplifiers that is near the channels when you open the player (make sure it is NO LONGER under warranty or else you'll void it). The cause perhaps is that your speakers have been shorted.
I had the very same problem, and found that if you power up the receiver in DVD/CD mode, or tap the function button to display DVD/CB mode, the Wireless Rear Speaker AMP will automatically recognize and turn on the sound. This work around was not posted anywhere in the manual, just 1 of many workarounds I have had to put up with this system to work. Right now my fan went and it just keeps shutting down, I have had this system for about 15 months and very disappointed with the quality. My DVD player stopped working a few months ago, so now the system is rendered useless, not even sure it is worth fixing at this point since it is no longer under warrenty.
Usually cheap. Dependant on whether it's an active or passive subwoofer, you'll need an RCA lead or a speaker lead respectively. Places like Radioshack, Maplin, etc etc will sell these, and the cost won't be huge.
If the cable tv has audio out jacks, or if you have a cable box with an optical audio cable, plug either the audio jacks into the RCA system or the optical audio cable, and the system should automatically simulate 5.1, through Dolby Pro Logic II. All speakers will not be at the same volume as they are simulating surround sound, not just playing the audio.
The TV will never have sound for the DVD as this system has no audio out puts. Realistically, most televisions have 10w speakers, and this system is 130w, so the TV speakers are useless in comparison.
I believe I have the solution....but it depends on your dvd player's zuxilarily capabilities. Do you have a second set of OUTPUT plugs that are colored Red and White on the back of the TV? Do you have a separate Red and White INPUT plugs on the back of the dvd? The TV must use the speakers in the DVD system by pushing the sound OUT. You cannot accomplish this if the dvd is only pluged into the INPUT of the tv.
\Another option is o make sure your DVD player has a "auxilary" or separate input channel on the console or remote.
I have a DVD home theatre system as well, not the same brand, but that shouldn't make a difference . Its a matter of how the sound is received.
Does sound like the laser. Realitically, not worth repairing. I'd say you'd be worth connecting a cheap DVD player to the system - then the Sony can carry on providing the surround sound audio and the new DVD player can provide the video. Then, if the cheap DVD player is still going, it can move to a bedroom TV if and when you replace the surround system....
Otherwise, I would imaging the speaker set (and even the non-working DVD player) on its own might fetch a reasonable price on an auction site - anyone who has a stolen DVD unit will probably be desparate for the speakers as Sony don't sell them separately!
