Question about Audio & Video Receivers

2 Answers

Just purchased a 52 inch flat plasma tv. Problem with the volume. When volume is fully extended, the volume is still low and definitely unsatisfactory. Would like to know if there is an adjustment that I am overlooking, or if that is the extent. In which case, I will return it.

I do not know which is your model, but unless you do not have external speakers or headfones there is no setting doing -db on volume in tvs if the volume is very low they may be a fault. If you give us make and model we can be more specific.

The sound on the plasmas is not very high compare to other TVs like the rear projection and the CRTs types.
If you add an amplifier or surround sound to get better audio, if you notice in the stores most of these TV are hook up to suround systems.

    Do you get the audio source from any other device(cable box, DVD player or satellite) and feed it to the TV?

I would first check and replace the cables to make sure you have clean signal. If that all checks out then I would consider putting in an amplifier in line to boost your signal. What is the distance you have on the cables all combined? Another thing to check in troubleshooting is to remove everything (cables) except the unit you are experiencing trouble with. If after all of this I would say your connection to your component itself is suspect.

Hello,sounds as if its an older reciever and the control is simply dirty(dusty) . What i would recommend (if you can access it) is simply spraying contact cleaner into the control .Contact cleaner can be purchased at a radio shack or online ,just get a quick drying one and do it while its unplugged.

Hi,
I feel for you. However I have good news for you. I just looked at the owner's manual for your set and you CAN connect it to the Receiver. If you look at the back of the set. There are several arrays for connectors for inputs. At the far right hand side there is a VCR output for recording. Use the lower two connectors (RCA Type), and plug them into the Aux (or CD) stereo input on your Kenwood Receiver. Below I've put in the link to the manual for your TV. Look on page 10.
Use the receiver volume control and you are in business.

Now, the matter of your set being High Definition. It actually is. It is 720p progressive scan HD. This is the earlier standard. It also will display 1080i interlaced high definition. The Pre HD standard was about 350i. That originated in the late 1940s. Not anything to write home to mom about (of course she grew up on this). There is a perceptible difference between 720p and 1080p but it is NOT a dramatic improvement.
I WOULD NOT go out and purchase a new 1080p set just now. Because there are two new standards on the horizon. One is 1440p and the other is 2160p 1440p is four times the pixels as 720p. 2160p is 4 times the pixels of 1080p. The 2160p sets formally are 3840X2160p.
Samsung and just about every other Japanese manufacturer have been demonstrating and displaying "proof of concept" 84 inch sets.
I don't know about you, but I'm holding my breath. Let me know how this works.
Best Regards,
Mark

I have just bought a TV, it has with it an invitation to extend the gurantee period by 6mths if I do it on-line but I can't get the Website up why cant I get the website--what should I do


Hi, is as if the website you are trying to access might not be fully developed yet that's why you can't get the website page.

I would advice you go back to the place you bought the TV from and get more information if the website is really working properly. and also get more details on how to extend the guarantee period for your TV..

Hope it helps..

Receiver very low when watching tv or dvd


It's just "Digital Audio" vs "Analog Audio" You can use the "Volume Offset" function in the receivers "Main Menu" to compensate for this. Go into the menu then go to audio and or input settings and you can adjust the offset and lock it in. If you still have a problem, post a comment and I can help you some more. There is not a "problem" it's just the way the audio is transmitted. Like when your watching TV and a commercial comes on and BLOWS you out of the room. That's going from clean digital to noisy analog.

Echo when connecting Samsung Plasma to Onkyo TX-SR602


Make sure you have the tv volume turned right down as this will cause an echo,also set amp to prologic 2, and set up xover to suit your speakers or go for the THX standard of 80 hrtz and as a rule of thumb set front L,C,R speakers to zero rears to about +4or5 and your sub to -5[ dont know which speakers you have but try setting the subs on board volume to the 10,o,cloak position],also make sure the speakers -,+ are wired the same at the amp and speakers.

Hope this helps.

Is the volume on the dish network device turned all of the way dowm?

Is the dish network connected to its pwn input on the SS system and did you turn the SS system to that input ?

Are you using the analog input (red and white) cables to the input from the TV to the SS System?, not from the SS box? This is not the correct setup?

you may be using an equalizer? try to pop-up the volume with all tone controls in flat mode. see if it still cuts off. if this is the first time youencounter this then something must be wroing with either your speakers or your amp. unless your ventilation is not good enoughg, you can also try placing a blower on top of your unit to cool it down

In all likelyhood, there is a problem with one of the surround amplifiers. With the volume really low, there is no current draw in the amp section. This unit requires service. Expect a parts cost in the $20-$40 range. Add in the local labor rate for the total cost.
