1 Answer

5.1 SPEAKER SETTINGS CHANGE AT EVERY RESTART

I have properly connected the speaker wires to main
unit , in correct polarity. I started plugging cables by clicking on
blue,green,pink indicators on realtek on board sound card software. I am
able to set all speakers in correct manner and there is no such distortion
in sound as such.To update my details , i have two operation system on my
pc, i.e XP ULTIMATE, & VISTA on seperate drive partitions. I have reloaded
my audio drivers as well as have clean formatted my machine twice to
establish a fresh install. Even though ,after going through this turnmoil ,
my speaker settings change every time i restart my PC in any operating
system . I am using Intel G31 motherboard, 2.2 ghz processor,NVIDIA 8300
graphic card. Is there any correlation whether on board sound card drivers
are not compatible with this set of speakers or do they need a lates update
to match the speakers ???? God knows or You know ?? help! help! help

Having multiple os's should not effect the settings it sounds like something directly related to the software you all are running for the surround. what is this sofware and is it updated, does it belong to the sound card or the speaker setup ?

My panasonic says f61 when i switch it on wat do i do


An F61 error occurs on a Panasonic home theater system when the speaker cable wire connections are wrong. This situation is likely to happen if you just purchased your unit or moved the system and try to reconnect the speakers again. Polarity is key in a successful setup. The positive and negative ends of the cable wires must match the input of the main unit. Retrace your speaker wire connections to clear error F61.
Step 1 Attach the speaker labels to the speaker wires for easier identification, if they're not already labeled. At minimum, labels for front left (L), front right (R) and center speakers should be included in the packaging contents that came with your system.
Step 2 Verify that the white ends of each speaker cable are connected to the corresponding "+" positive inputs for each speaker.
Step 3 Verify that the blue ends of each speaker cable are connected to the corresponding "-" negative inputs for each speaker.
Step 4 Push the plastic ends of the speaker wires on each speaker to verify that each is locked into place.
Step 5 Connect the remaining end of the "Front (L)" speaker wire to the white terminal/connector on the main unit.
Step 6 Connect the remaining end of the "Front (R)" speaker wire to the red terminal/connector on the main unit.
Step 7 Connect the remaining end of the "Center" speaker wire to the green terminal/connector on the main unit.
Step 8 Connect the remaining end of the "Subwoofer" wire to the purple terminal/connector on the main unit.
Step 9 Connect the remaining ends of the "Surround (R)" and "Surround (L)" speakers to the wireless system.

Tip

Using Proper Speaker Polarity


Sound system speakers have standard polarity which is indicated either with a "+" or a "-", or with Red and Black colors near the speaker terminals. This same polarity marking is also found on the sound system amplifier section. Most speaker cable has a polarity indication; either color coded, or a physical difference in the wires. Reversed polarity results an obvious decrease in bass, and a hollow sound in the mid range frequencies. If your speaker cable has no obvious polarity indication, you can check the polarity as follows; connect a 9V battery to each speaker cable for no more than about a second; long enough to see the woofer cone move. When the + battery terminal is connected to the + speaker lead, the woofer cone will move out. When you have this situation, label the positive speaker lead, either with tape, or by tying that wire in a simple knot. Make sure both cables are checked.

Ouku single din no sound from rca cables


Sorry I did not use the video out RCA cables. My audio RCA cables worked fine... I ran them to my JBL amplifier through a conversion adapter. I did not run it direct to the amp.. I used Metra TYTO-01 03-08 Toyota Vehicles Harness for JBL SYS (Ebay item 160560648718) and it worked great.

Here is the wiring color coding that I found online:

I've just bought a desktop from Cube (the Polaris ST12) which comes with Creative Inspire T6100 5.1 speaker system. The connection instructions which come with the speakers show 3 cables from the subwoofer...


The blue is for a audio in and pink is the mic. Green is the audio out.
You will need to buy a new video card that has all 4-5 colors (green,,black,orange,blue,pink,white)
That way you can plug in all your connections and it'll work correctly.
