Question about Panasonic SC-HT730 System

Power issues: will not turn off or function

My problem is very similar. I have the main unit plugged in along with the subwoofer. The power light remains on. When I hit the power button to turn it off, go to the main unit to press open/close on the DVD player, or hit input selections on the main unit, the light on the subwoofer and main unit goes off for about 2 seconds then turns back on. I have to unplug the unit in order to turn off both the subwoofer and the main unit.

Everything is plugged up properly but I'm not gettin anywhere with setting up the home theatre system. Not sure if it's a fuse or not but certainly a power issue. Any help and/or suggestions anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.

Unplug all of the speakers and power on.Its possible that one of the speakers is causing the protection circuit to activate.If powered on and subwoofer works start reconnecting one speaker at a time( after powered off) and retest each time.One Speaker may be bad.Its also possible the output ic is failing under a speaker load.There are no fuses related to this issue.If its not a speaker problem then the subwoofer will need to be serviced.

Troubleshooting back-up malfunction after replacing battery. Checked main power supply breaker and battery power supply fuses for continuity. What should I try next?

Depending on the type of unit, you do not state any model. It may require 6-8 hours of being plugged in and turned off before the battery has enough charge that the ups will turn on.

Why did this turn off by itself?

You may have a problem in the audio output chips in the unit, first check the speaker wires on the back for shorts, a common problem, if okay you will need a technician to take it to the next step.

Problem seems in power supply section at VC-516 (main board). If you know how to open and repair it, just check Fuses at VC-516 board and these are located near connector coming from battery / dc-in jack area. One fuse is open in this case.

Disconnect all of your speakers(subwoofers)then turn the receiver on. If it still does it, then bring it into service. If not, that you have a short somewhere probably the main board and there are no home remedies for this.

Machine Unresponsive

HP Support:
Try resetting the unit by unplugging the unit while its on, then holding on the # and 6 keys plug the power back in an continue to hold the # and 6. The printer will power itself down, the reset is complete; turn it back on using the power button and attempt a copy.
If the unit has never been able to make a copy, it is likely that unit is defective.

Rear Wirelss speaker do not work

With the main unit turned off, press and hold [REMAIN] on the home theater's remote for 4 seconds. (The REMAIN button is directly under the 7 button). Once held down for 4 seconds, the Volume Indicator on the main unit will turn on for 1 second. Release the [REMAIN]. 

Press the [RESET] on the back of the Wireless Receiver 2-3 times. The Standby/On LED on the front of the Wireless Receiver will blink 3 times
Turn on the main unit. The Link LED on the wireless receiver will light up if process is done correctly. The front of the main unit will no longer say REAR CHK and the rear speakers should now function correctly.

Can't get sound from the wireless subwoofer

There are 2 things you can try, first ensure that the digital transmitter is fully inserted into the slot of the main unit. Secondly do you have any other wireless devices near such as cordless phone or wireless network equipment? See page 5 of the installation manual as per this picture.......
