Question about Sony DAV-S500 System

2 Answers

Turning off I have only one problem with this system and that every now and then it goes into what appears headphone mode without any headphones being plugged in, and then at some point the sound returns as if nothing has happened.

I got a DAV system that had exactly the same problem, ie. it was stuck in "headphone mode", this mode should be active when headphones are attached then it should revert to amplifier mode when the headphones are removed.
I opened the cover and removed the amplifier output board (the one where the speaker wires connect to) and soldered the following dry joints.
1) large brown capacitor on the amp output board.
2) dry joints on the rear headphone socket (the one that has the connecting lead from the front headphone socket)
3) Then one of the surround channels didn't work so I soldered further dry joints on all the coils (white vertical rectangular blocks)
I tested all surround chanels before putting the lid back on (careful, watch the mains) and found all was now working ok.

Same problem as below, I have the Denon AVR 790 and the sound keeps switching to headphones. Blowing into the socket did not help. Both unpluging the AV and putting the headphones in and out fix's the...


The unit thinks there are headphone plugged in even when there are not. You need to have the headphone jack replaced. This is a common problem with this model. Another way to fix it if you don't plan on using the headphone jack is to unplug the cable going to the headphone jack board. This will disable the headphone jack, and stop it from sending an erroneous signal to the micro.

We recently purchased a boat that has a bose system but we cannot get sound through the speakers. Appears to be in standby mode. How do we get it off standby mode.


Hi, after rigorous investigation at the Bose website the best answer I could come up with is that bose says to touch the " top center of the control pod "-main unit? It goes into a muted mode when plugged in or when headphones are inserted. Also apparently when unit is plugged in and powered on you must hit a " source " button on remote ie.: radio-dvd-tv etc.. the full manual is also available to view or download from Bose's website Bose.com, I hope this was useful, and thank you for asking FixYa, good luck-Prodzilla.

The ht-c6600 does not have a headphone jack. I want to listen to games and movies without blowing away the neighbors. How to I connect headphones to this system?


This unit has NO usable audio outputs.

A workaround would be to see if the TV has a headphone output. Or route the TV audio to a PC and use the PC's heaphone output.

I want to connect a wireless headphone to my system, how do I do this


nstall the USB dongle as the manufacturer instructs you and make sure it’s switched on. Next, fire up your headphones (don’t forget to charge them first). Now remember that most headphones have two different start-up modes. The first time you switch them on you’ll need to pair them with the USB computer. This is done by holding the power button on for at least 4 or 5 seconds (you should read the instructions manual to find out exactly how to do it).

After this is done, you’ll need to scan for Bluetooth devices from your PC. Just start up the software and use it to see what Bluetooth devices you have around. The scan should take a few seconds and after finishing, the software should display a list containing your headphones. Remember that other devices such as mobile phones may be detected if their Bluetooth modules are activated during the scanning process.

tb_zoom.gif Select the headphones and go on to the next step. The software should provide you with two choices. You should be able to pair the device as Stereo Headphones or Headset. Choose headset and go to the next step. A pin will be required in order to pair the device. Most default pins are 0000, but you should check the manual in order to be sure.

The headphones will start ringing and you will be required to press the Call/Answer/Power button (do it). Also, a name should be provided for this connection. You can name it anything you like. My software also allows me to place an icon on the desktop and just double click it when I need to connect my headphones with my laptop.

These should be the basic steps when pairing a device for the first time. Now, if I want to connect my headphones with my laptop I can just activate them (in non-pairing mode) and double click my desktop icon to establish a connection.

You can also repeat the steps above in order to pair your device as stereo headphones. After switching on the device, just double click the connection you desire and everything will work flawlessly.

My sony dav-s-400 system keeps activating headphone port output.


Just had and fixed the same problem that hundreds of people are suffering with this system!!
Sony DAV s400 - same problem, won't play though speakers and display indicates that headphones are plugged in - when they are not. Fairly easy to fix and took me less than an hour from start to finish:
1) Remove top cover
2) Remove circuit board that has Audio In/Out phono scockets (to get access to Amplifier Circuit Board)
3) Remove Amplifier circuit board (has the speakers attached)
4) Turn it over and remove copper heat shield
5) Resolder joints where the big brown capacitor is and where the wires go to the front headphone socket...and any other dodgy joints that you find
6) Reassemble.

No surround sound(headphone theatre mode)


hi, i am having the same problem right now, but when
i wiggle the little connector from the headphone on the mainboard it clicks to normal mode, so the connector is loose

i suggest that you resolder(am i spelling it right?)
the connector and it will be fixed.

No Sound in any mode


I had the same problem... but I knew that my 2 yr old had been playing with the headphone jack on the BC-150. Evidently, the system thought that headphones were still plugged in to the port on the front right of the unit, even though none were present. The solution that worked for me was to take some headphones, plug them COMPLETELY into the system (another set of headphones would not insert all the way, so I found a new set and used those to completely insert into the headphone port) while playing a CD and listen for a few seconds and then simply unplug them. Viola! Sound came back. Hope this helps.
