Lost sound through tv/sat mode

Hi, my system worked perfectly til the power flicked off one day, now my tv will not play through the tv/sat mode but only through the dvd mode where it all still works right. the dvd player will now however not come through the dvd mode at all. i didnt change any wires or anything but i did notice that on the tv/sat mode that i cannot get the tuner to change to digital. it is stuck on analog, but on the dvd mode when i hit the signal select it will change to digital mode and thats when the sound comes through. Can someone PLEASE help me??

Thank you,

Tom

    Hi there, tried to unplug for an hour and wait. still the same problem. model is a pioneer vsx d498. It seems so strange that i can get the surround sound to work through the dvd preset now but the dvd will only play through the tv speakers now not the surround sound. It seems like the reason this is not working is because on the tv/sat mode wont switch from analog to digital. i went to best buy saturday and tried to get a brand new tuner to switch from analog to digital and it wouldnt as well. It almost makes me believe it is a setting. I know the wires are all hooked up right because it worked for over a year and i had it professionally installed.

    Please allow me to add another twist to this strange scenario. I now have managed to get surround sound to come through for my dvd player on the cd mode setting. Now mind you, I have not changed ONE single wire and for the last year or more everything has worked the way it should up to when this problem began. This is the strangest thing I have ever heard of. Any ideas on these strange happenings??

Hi,

Initially, would you pls try a systems reset by removing its plug from the mains for a couple of hours.

Thereafter, would appreciate an update. On your post back, pls provide additional information on the units that are interconnected (brand and model numbers). We will then figure things out from thereon (if required).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    To my understanding, the Pioneer VSX-D498 will only allow switching to Digital if the signal source/input is Dolby Digital, PCM (32kHz, 44kHz, and 48kHz) digital signal formats. All other digital signal formats other than these, would have to be treated as “ANALOG” therefore the Signal Select should be "ANALOG".

    Perhaps there is nothing wrong with the receiver and as you have posted "it is a setting" as you have tried likewise tried with a "brand new tuner". If so then perhaps you have to consider the settings of the other units hooked up and providing the signal coming into the receiver such as your TV/Satellite Tuner or DVD Player. They have to be specifically set to output/produce Dolby Digital, PCM (32kHz, 44kHz, and 48kHz) digital audio signal formats.

    As initially requested, would you please indicate what other units are hooked up to the Pioneer VSX-D498.

Try unplugging all of the equipment for 30 minute to an hour, and see if this fixes it, otherwise, it sounds like the flickering power may have caused a surge in the circuitry of the equipment, causing it to short circuit the digital tuner in the TV.

Get my dish reciever, sony home theatre, and 55in sanyo tv to work together


If your TV and sound system both have a Digital Optical Out/In you can use a TOSLink cable (an optical cable) to connect your TV directly to your sound system, and remove the connection between the DISH receiver and the sound system. As long as your sound system is on the right input, all sound accompanying the picture on screen will go to your sound system. Most TVs also have an option to turn off the internal speakers, if not just reduce your volume all the way down to avoid that weird ghost sound effect. If you use your sound system all the time for volume, you can program the sound system to your DISH remote's AUX, and even set the remote so that it only sends volume and mute commands to the sound system (that way you don't have to dance between sat, tv, and aux all day, just leave it in sat mode).

To program your remote to the sound system, follow the instructions on the sheet you got with the remote (yeah, right like anyone kept that) http://www.mydish.com/support/remotecodes you can use that link to program your remote. You can also use the learning mode if your remote has a little glossy square on the top left side and you have the original remote to the sound system. (Learning mode can be gleaned from the remote manual Remote Control Manuals)

After programming the aux device, and verifying that it changes the volume up, down, and mute, THEN:

Hold AUX until light blinks 3 times, hit pound (#), Volume Up, 0 (Zero), pound (#), SAT, then test to make sure it goes up and down.

Is your Panasonic set to monitor the HDMI input? Just like selecting a mode input on the Tv you must also select the mode input on the surround system.

No audio after recording from sat. Reciever


Double-check your input cables from the receiver to the LG 389. Do you have the sat. receiver AV out connected to the front AV In on the LG DRT389? Make sure that you haven't mixed up the L and R audio connections on either side. (I've done something similar with RCA cables myself.) Next, try a different set of cables.

If that doesn't work, there may be a problem with the audio jacks on either your receiver or the 389. To check, plug the AV cables from the Sat. Receiver directly into the TV. If you have sound and video, then the input jacks on the recorder may be damaged.

Try using another input. (It looks like some models have the SCART input; you may need to set the input source in the menu under AV2 Decoder.)

The fact that you have audio output on USB and DVD's means that cables/connections between the LG289 and the TV are fine.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the details of which AV port you are using on the LG389 for additional assistance.

Stuck in Progressive Scan Mode...please help!


There should be a switch on the DVD player that is makred 'progressive/interlaced.' You need to flick this switch til it says interlaced, as obviously your TV cannot view progressive signals. It may be on the back of the player, or under a flap on the front.
