    I'm having the exact same problem, the manual however calls this an "amber" light. I found the problem March 23rd, 2008, but no telling when this actually happened as I don't us the DVD player much. We've unplugged the whole system for 3 minutes, plugged the DVD in the wall rather than the receiver, tried several button combos...still nothing. Just an amber light no matter the position of the power button.

JBL-SUB135S please i need User Manual

As it is also sold as part of this system, Cinema ProPack 600, this manual should suffice.

Page 37 gets into it. That's all there is to know.

There's not a lot going on in a vanilla self-powered sub. You seen one, you've seen them all.

Hello there i have Optoma EW 536 Projector and i play movies on my laptop ... now i want to connect all this through sound and video on home cinema but i dunno how ? it is possible ?

Yes, you will need a DVD player and a sound system, you can connect an HDMI cable from your DVD to the Optoma and then a digital audio cable from your DVD player to your sound system.

Panasonic multi connections

HDMI audio in this setup is a one way street. Audio will not come back from the TV to the audio system.
Sorry as you have not shown the model number I can not advise on the system fully.
However, it is standard on the current Panasonics to use Optical audio as a return feed or phonos.
Optical would be best as it carries full digital surround, whilst the phonos only carry "surround"
It may help for you to look a the new Panasonic web sit as there is now an interactive "How to connect your system"

Friend gave me a jbl surround system to go with my 52" sony hd tv. It has four speakers. three sat 20 and one bass 20. going to a rca stva 3970 receiver. didn't have instructions to go with it.

You need two more speakers to get surround sound,ie> two front one center and two for surround,then you need a home cinema amp to run the speakers and decode the sound from your tv,sky,dvd etc,and the sub gives you your bass.

Hope this helps.

We have recently just bought a samsung htx250r home cinema. we have a 50 inch samsung plasma, the dvd player sound works using the hdmi cable but the surround sound does not work when we are watching...

Salutations ddog,

Really this is a question of sources. The reason your able to hear surround sound when connected to your DVD player is that is what is providing your audio and video source. When your watching television it would depend on how your getting your broadcasts. If you are either receiving an over-the-air broadcast or cable directly to your set, your television becomes the source. As your television is providing the signal, you would need it to loop back to your receiver to provide that surround sound.

Now for the good news, if you have a cable or satellite box these should have outputs to connect to your receiver to provide the audio source.

Also keep in mind not all broadcasts provide a version of surround sound. Most newer home theater systems will replicate surround sound artificially.

I hope this helps.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

sounds like the drive mechanism is jammed, best to take it for a repair quote unless its still under warranty in which case return it for repair or refund.
