Question about Pioneer 600w Dts 5.1 DVD Surround Sound Home Theater System

1 Answer

System is stuck in headphones mode...

I have had trouble setting up my system. In fact, my system is not reading any of the speakers. The icon on the receiver is reading S, and if it were able to read the speakers it would say one of two things (S A or S B). I have checked the speaker connections several times and everything is snug and secure. I would like to get some input on what I need to do to get my system of this mode! The manual that was provided has been no help whatsoever!

Thanks,
Scott

Your driver is either not correct or corrupted so first uninstall and then reinstall your printer driver. Your problem will be fixed up.

I bought an asda surround system model SP550. Four speakers connected to main console. But should there be anything that connects to the TV?


This is more of a multi media speaker system for your PC, so you will notice the cable provided my not connect to your TVar all. You have to connect the mini 3.5mm headphone pin into the headphone socket of the TV. If you do that only the front two speakers and the subwoofer will work ( 2.1 mode ). The surround speaker will stay silent because you cannot use the second pin on your TV.

I have a Samsung ht-p1200 system, and would like to use speakers AND headphones at the same time. How do I do that (when I plug in the headphones the signal to the speakers disconnetcs.


You could try rigging headphones to the speaker output if you don't mind cutting some wires and spending a couple bucks on a headphone jack thing.

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.

REAR AND CENTER SPEAKERS WILL NOT PLAY


rear and center speakers will not play...................are you in the 5.1 channel input, or one of the others? either way, start by making sure that your center channel is set for normal mode (instead of a wide or a phantom mode) this silly setting can cause all kinds of trouble shooting nightmares especially particular to the 5.1 input setting. best reccommended to select the 5.1 input option and do a "t.test" on the system to ensure that all speakers are indeed wired and properly recieving some signal..... the rest will flow from there..... I have also noticed that in particular sound modes, the system is extremely finicky about the connections..... if you are using the 5.1 option, you need to be sure that something is plugged into the inputs on the back (regardless if they are connected to anything) the system seems to prefer when all ports are filled. hope this helps..... i realize that it has been a while since this question has been posted, but let me assure you, that some of us are still rockin those sava systems..... still by today's comparison, it is difficult to beat the sound quality and oh my the bass!!

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.

Speaker error


Try checking the volume on your subwoofer i had the same problem. I unplugged the system and had the same error message pop up. So i checked the volume on the subwoofer, and it was set to max, i set it to normal and i haven't had any problems since

There are 2 ways to check your volume

1...On the remote there is a button labeled "BASS" press it, and on the display it will tell you a number between -3 and +3, If no number appears then it should say either "MIN" or "MAX" if it's at max use the volume control on the remote to turn it down to "0"

2...On the remote press "SET UP"
.....Select the Volume icon by using the arrow keys, press "ok" or "enter" to access that icon
.....Select "Speaker Setup" using the arrow keys and enter button
.....Select Speaker Volume by pressing enter
.....scroll down to "SUBWOOFER" and make sure the volume is no higher than +4dB
....Once done press "SET UP" on the remote to exit the setup screen

*Note* - The speaker volume option can only be chosen when nothing is playing on the player, or the disc tray is empty, You also have to be in either, Ipod mode or DVD mode to access this menu.

Hope this solves your problem, and i apologize on the delay of this solution ^_^

Turning off


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.

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.
