Make sure the TV is 'looking' at the right input. If your system is connected to A/V input 1, then make sure the TV is set to that input. If everything is ok there, pressing MENU should bring it up. It's easiest if there is nothing in the DVD player.

You can also download the manual from RCA's site. CLick the link below to get it.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!!

Hi, I've a problem with audio outputs from the sub. Specifically the front-right audio out plays both front-right and surround-right audio out while surround right out does not play anything. Can you help...


Do you have your receiver setup for 5.1 and not stereo surround? It sounds like it does not have 5.1 enabled. Look in the manual to see how to configure for 5.1 surround. You should have separate audio configuration setting for each speaker.

IF ALL WIRES ARE CORRECTLY BEEN SETUP OR INSTALLED THEN THE NEXT STEP IS TO CONFIGURE THE SYSTEM TO WORK ON ALL SPEAKERS...

Before the setup of the speakers' channels

Some of my speakers arn't playing sound on my HT-E555OW


If you are trying to play a cd, you must manually tell the unit to play it in surround sound. Cd audio defaults to stereo only. Does it do the same thing if you are playing a dvd? If it happens on dvd's as well, then something in the speaker setup menu is wrong.

The rear surround sound speakers are not working.the front ones are and the sub woofer works fine also. everything is connected properly but have no idea what to do to make them work.can you please help


Make sure that the media you are using has the surround sound...eg. if you are listening to the radio then the rear speaskers will not work as the signal is not transmitted in surround...if you put a dvd in that has the dolby digital signal encoded on it then the rears should work....the rears will only work when you have the receiver in the surround mode..make sure the receiver is in the right mode...also, you may have rear speaker volume settings in the setup menu that may need to be set up..go through the manual and see if there is a setting for the rear volume...most home theater sets have this feature and it allows you to set up the system for different size rooms

Having just setup a SC-BT230 Home Theatre Sound System, the SURROUND and SOUND buttons on the remote have no effect, so we cannot change the sound modes


Sometimes these buttons only work for certain formats eg. a cd may not play with more than the front 2 speakers.
Also, when you press these buttons are you viewing the home cinema on your tv? It may require you to press the sound/surround button, navigate a menu to select the setting then press OK (this is how my Philips unit works)
Hope this helps.

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.

Onkyo HT-SR800 the surround speakers are not blasting


I had the same problem and fixed it by manually setting the surround speakers changing the Level Cal to +12dB. You will immediately notice a significant increase in volume and may need to back down on the dB's. What a diffence it makes!

Help getting sound from New Sony LCD Television Model XV HTD520 DVD Player with Surround Sound S HTD520


While I could not find it in the manual, I found that you must
go to the menu, open Sound Options and set Speakers to "Fixed".

Note: If you turn off the Surround Sound or DVD player combination you must then go back to the menu and turn the speakers back to Televsion.
