Hi and welcome to Fixya.

This may sound foolish but just do it... Check the wall outlet to make sure that there is a good connection for the power cord. Unplug / Replug in the cord. I would go so far as to recommend using an extension wire cord for troubleshooting to see if just by using a different power source from a different circuit breaker that the unit performs normally.

If the sleep function has been activated it will automatically go into standby. Press the sleep button on the remote and cycle through 30, 60, 90 and 120 until OFF is displayed. (I would think by now 120 minutes should have passed and this was not the problem)

Usually when a system goes into the stanby mode it has recently been powered "on" either from the user plugging the unit into thewall outlet or after a power loss. Depressing the power button on the remote SHOULD bring the Home theater system out of the stand by mode unless the batteries are low in the remote or the remote is not functioning correctly. (Try the AV button also)

If the remote does NOT function... First off check remove the batteries and check the terminal contacts for any form of corrosion. (Use a DRY 3M "scotch brite" pad to clean corroded contacts if they are corroded and make sure to remove any cleaning pad debris after cleaning)

Remote controls can be fussy when foreign matter gets under the rubber keypad feed on the carbon faced surfaces. Most of the time the remote just stops working all together. The only way to get it to work again is have the remote controls contact surfaces cleaned. Requires dis-assembly and cleaning.

Aditionally if the remote was at sometime dropped the batteries can come lose in their mounts.

The printed circuit card can crack and tear a mini-electrical conduit ribbon.

The Remotes' on board "IC chip" or terminals can crack loosening a contact to the chip.

Lastly there is at least one Capacitor inside the remote that the 2 electrical contact pins can fail from the remote being dropped or falling on the floor.

At this point all things point to the remote...

There is the possibility Amplifiers on board IR recieving circuit has a problem but that is very rare.

If you need more assistance just repspond here. Thanks again for using Fixya! Kelly

Replacing Panasonic SA-HT500 with Newer Model that has HDMI Input


ANY amp will be ok, as long as the wattage of your new amp does not exceed the wattage of your speakers. Otherwise you could overdrive your speakers and damage them. First clue, if you turn up the volume and the speakers start to shut off and on you are pushing too much power to them.

Want to play my playstation thru my sa ht500 system


You will not be able to get full surround from your Playstation using this home theater system - if you use a red/white composite AV cable and connect it to the area marked TV AUDIO IN on the back of the Panasonic, you will be able to get stereo sound.

PANASONIC DVD HOME THEATRE SOUND SYSTEM SA-HT500


The SC-HT500 is only for use in the UK, Ireland, Australia, and a few other places - you will need at least a transformer if you want to try to use it in the US. The manual can be found here:

Not really an option to modify cable.Connections inside subwoofer and main unit are difficult to work with.Common problems with dvd are laser/traverse deck failure and dvd tray ailgnment.You can run a seperate Dvd player by using the Tv or Tape audio input in the receiver and run the Video cable direct to TV.

Hook up


well u cannot hook almost any devices with the SC-HT500.
I have this homecinema system for 5 years now, and i had to buy another stand alone DivX player to hook it up, but can't get the sound in dolby from the standalone player since the panasonic SC-HT500 has only 2 analog stereo RCA ports (audio in) in the back and a scart (A/V out) and component video (Video out).
At that time it was a very good system, but since i have bought a Full HD LCD tv with 1080p capabilities, I realised that my home cinema system i.e the Panasonic SC-HT500 is kind of useless, in the sense that you cannot even change the player for another one since the whole spaker and power connections are made trhough a special cable from the subwoofer. :(
best solution is that put the system back in a corner and get a new system which is not an all-in-one system. Preferrable get home cinema systems that come with a receiver, separate dvd player and speakers and subwoofer hooked to the receiver.
you asked how to hook these devices to your tv,, well the panasonic dvd recorder is better if you connect it via HDMI cable if you can. In the other case, connecting them with a scart cable would be another solution.

Sc-ht500 system cable


You cannot wire this system separately, since it is very difficult to separate the power cables from the others which carry the audio parts.if in any case , lets suppose, you could wire the dvd player separetely, you will have no audio since all the audio frequencies are transfered in this cable to the sub woofer and from there to the satellite speakers.
It would be useless to wire it even if we could as there would never be any audio, only video, no matter what disc you use as the only way the audio is comming is throught this system cable to the subwoofer. Actually its the worst idea to implement in a home cinema system, but well, this is old panasonic.. :)
