Question about Panasonic DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

Set up the Panasonic SC-PT450 and followed all the various instructions. Am using the surround sound in conjunction with a Panasonic TV bought at same time (50" plasma) but can't seem to get sound out of the rear speakers except on "test". There must be a simple reason but I'm not seeing it, I can't figure that you need to setup every time you want to use the surround sound other than with a DVD. HELP

    Many thanks Kalm21, am going to check all the sources to see what works and doesn't, had poor response from previous LG surround sound and was never really convinced that I would be entirely satisfied but when you go shopping the retailers always seems to work "properly". Is the ony true surround sound avaiallbe for something like a BOSE system I wonder? I managed to adjust the rear speaker volume last night but you can't do this without going onto the DVD channel, how mich higher should the rear speakers volume be in comparison tot he front ones?
    Regards

    Ok, so the new TV is also freeview installed, would this mean then that as a source it wouldn't normally allow sound surround from say last nights football? I can appreciate that soaps and documentary type rogrammes may only have steroe in the audio part of the broadcast, but all films (modern) and sports shold, shouldn't they?
    There is a distinct "change" in the audio when it is from the TV only compared to the DVD/SS sysystem, but how do you know when a programme is, or isn't broadcast witht SS?

Are you sure you're using a source material that is surround sound? Most TV broadcasts are still only stereo.

Also with surround programmes, the rear speakers are only used for the surround effect so will only make sound when the sound source is supposed to be behind you.

    The relative volumes of the speakers should all be the same for your main listening position so if you're near the rear speakers they should be turned down, if you're nearer to the front they should be turned up. It should sound like all the speakers are the same volume when in test mode.

    Alot of the soaps and sports programmes will have surround sound, listen out for things like crowd noise in the stadium or a car driving off behind the camera.

    There is a slight difference between the surround sound you get from DVD and that from broadcast. DVD carries 5.1 sound or Dolby Digital, this sends a sepperate signal to each of the speakers. The rear speakers opperate in a stereo mode with left and right seperation.

    Broadcast surround is usually Dolby Pro Logic. Pro Logic decodes a stereo signal into a 4 channel signal, The rear speakers both carry the same signal so there is no left and right seperation. Its a minor difference though and shouldn't really be very noticable.

    Hope this helps,

    Andy

I am trying to find an update driver for my Panasonic DVD Home Cinema SC-PT450-K Can you help? Plus how o I upload a DVD player with these drivers?


Hello

According to panasonic they dont make a pt450 but they do make a 480, so I assume this will get you close enough.

here is the driver site

Best of luck
PS you can also download the manual too, and that will give you all the directions.

My Surround sound DVD player SC-PT450 is displaying the fault code 'F61'. I have a basic electronic knowledge. It says in the manual to check the speaker wiring, but I have removed all speakers and the...


Hi,

Panasonic error code F61 is for an output /power problem. Most likely it will need the output IC replaced. But check that the fan(s) are running a bad or stopped fan will also cause F61.

So the fan needs to be replaced. My system had the same problem and the fan was making a terrible noise. I had this repaired and the system is as good as new.It is better that you take it to the technician for the repair.Still then i am giving you little help.Remove the cover and use an air duster on the fan. This may not be enough so if you must, remove the fan (two screws + 2 clips) and pop it out of its housing. Dust the blades off and gently pull the fan away from its center as if you were trying to separate the two. There should be about a 2 or 3 mm gap there now. Dust that out and I even sprayed some lube (WD40) in for good measure. Put it all back together and make sure the fan spins and is quiet when you power up your system.

Or else that is if your fan is working fine then your iC needs to be replaced and it is best left to a technician and Panasonic is the only supplier that I know has the part.

If you have a repair shop repair the problem, the cost could be $150.00 or more to repair.It would surely solve your problem.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

to see the dvd sound menu option you must be on the correct input selection for your tv. ie. if its Scart, then AV1, or if HD then HDMI 1 etc. then you see the options. as for sound being variable, you can adjust the sound for each speaker in this mode. Main thing for having surround sound with normal TV is to turn on the sound enhancement mode. also, on your viera link on the tv remote, make sure sound its selected as home cinema. word of warning, leave dvd on D-In option, and when turning the TV off, use standby mode, which turns both systems off, ensuring the link does not break.

The sound level from the TV Line Out is fixed, so you must control the volume from the surround sound component unit.

Hooking up a PS3 to my surround sound


you have to go to the set up menu and let the receiver know that you are inputting dvd audio to the digital in. (assigning). that way, when you switch the receiver to dvd, it will look for audio from the digital input. your receiver manual will guide you through that set-up.
if that does not work, the fiber optic cable could be bad. this is more common than people would expect.
another option is to just rca cables to the receiver from the ps3. there is an adapter that lets you do that.
good luck
