Question about Audio & Video Receivers

Open Question

I have a Panasonic SA-PT860 home cinema system. Problem is, the sound level out of the back speakers is very low, even on speaker test. I have swapped the speakers around and altered the db settings, all to no avail. The supplier is now trying to tell me that "this is the way the system is" ... can this be right ?

    I get no sound out of the wireless speakers that came with my Panasonic SA-PT860! I have tried reconnecting, power off/on and note that on the AV screen of the player, it has a flashing 'W1', which the manual says is a frequency conflict that it is resolving...it doesn't resolve it, and I get no sound...

SOURCE: Right speaker channel low, both front and and back, even the headphones

There might be a levels adjustment in the setup menu for distance or something, might check that before opening unit up.

SOURCE: one speaker is lower volume than others - right front

I think that maybe you setted the distance of the speakers wrong. Check your users manual and try to adjust the distance.

SOURCE: center speaker

I had the exact same problem. In order to "almost" balance the center with the other channels I had to give the center +12db gain and the other channels -12db. So after I got that far with level calibration I tried some tv sound, well the center although was playing sounded like the highs were missing and a bit distorted. This is the good part, I turned the volume all the way up real fast, somewhere near max something fixed itself, the center became very loud. Now it works just like new. Hope this helps. BTW, the problem existed the same for sub channel, so when the center started working so did the sub.

SOURCE: LG HT503PH home cinema system

Press the VSM button on the remote control until the display shows PL11 MOVIE or PL 11 MUSIC I personally prefer movie, that should give you simulated 5.1 on all speakers It works for me on both my TV and my xbox 360 which are connected.

SOURCE: Right speaker is distorted with low volume, left

There is something wrong with the right channel amplifier, you need to get this equipment serviced.

I bought a new panasonic home cinema model number sc-pt480eb-k. Its supposed to be 1000 watts but the output it doesn't match that output at all even with all the speakers on. What maybe the cause of this...


Hype on the part of the maufacturer's published specs.

Look at the Power Comsumption spec on page 22. "90 watts"

According to this post, 45 watts...

http://reviews.cnet.com/home-theater-systems/panasonic-sc-pt480/4507-6740_7-34024832.html

It would be a miracle indeed to extract 1000 watts of sustained power in any form, be it heat, light, motion or sound from a unit that uses anything less than 1000 watts of electricity, assuming 100% efficiency. Not to mention the dreadful 10% distortion level they use to get that figure.

To say it pushes 1000 watts is dishonest and preys on the gullible.

Hi. I have a panasonic SA-PT860 dvd theatre system. Everytime you turn the on/off button it states that I have an F61 fault. I have looked in the manual and it says to check speaker connections. I have...


- Is your system playing in spite of this error?

Assuming that this is the model complete with "receiver" and speakers+sub and you use these and the original connections. You could try and measure your ohm level on each speaker to control if there is a bad/blown speaker. The Ohm level should be the same on each speaker - roughly.
- Hope this will get you somewhere!

Replacing a Surround Sound System Receiver


the difference is the "same speaker connections"
the front and rear will connect the same but the subwoofer is amplified by the HT75 , and the HE75 does not have an internal amp for the subwoofer speaker , only a "pre output"(has to be amplified)

No sound out of subwoofer


Connection from receiver subwoofer output jack RCA plug male go into your powered subwoofer low level input with other end of cable, then you need to select Subwoofer YES/NO on the JVC receiver speaker setup menu option, select YES if this is a powered subwoofer you are using, should power up the subwoofer, may have to adjust a test tone balance for multi speaker output also, try trimming up on the subwoofer channel to initiate the signal on if the sub has an auto-on feature.

The very FIRST thing to check is to make certain ALL of your speakers have an IMPEDENCE of 8 OHMS. Virtually all speakers of even modest quality will include this specification on a label on the back of the speaker. You CANNOT run more than (2) TWO speakers with 4 OHMs impedence on ANY amplifier (technical discussion too long!) [NOTE: Even though fused, your receiver has internal overload protection systems to prevent permanent damage. However, you cannot re-set these systems yourself. Your dealer or authorized service center must do this.] But, before you take it in for service, there is one more "test": check for shorted and/or mis-connected/disconnected speaker cables/wires. Visually inspect connections at the receiver and speakers first. You might find something obvious! If everything looks okay, then disconnect ALL of the speakers; and reconnect and test them one at a time (at relatively low volume.) For example, reconnect the left front speaker, test the system; THEN add the right front, test the system,and so on, ADDING one more speaker each time - FIRST MAKING SURE EACH OF THEM HAS AN IMPEDENCE OF AT LEAST 8 OHMS! IF there is a short (or bad speaker) this will help isolate it. Hopefully one of these "fixes" will work for you. GOOD LUCK!
