You may has a blown fuse inside the receiver. Unplug it from the wall, open it up and look around the area the A/C plug goes into the board. There should be a glass fuse. Sometimes you can tell by looking closely at the fuse if it is blown. They have a very slim filament that goes from one end to the other. If it is broken or not connected or if it looks like it is burned anywhere in the glass area, it is blown. Look at the metal ens caps for a amperage rating and get another fuse of the same value at radio shack or anyplace that sells fuses. make sure the power cord is not plugged in when you do any of this or you will get shocked.

When you first go to turn on the unit, do it with the speakers disconnected. That way, if a speaker is the cause of the fuse blowing, you will at least see that the unit turns on.

If it does turn on, turn it back off and connect the speakers and try again. If it blows a fuse, you most likely have a shorted speaker causing the amp to draw to much current and blowing the fuse.

If you replace the fuse, and it blows again after turing the unit back on with speakers connected, you have much deeper problems that will require electronic troubleshooting to determain the exact cause. But it is normally the amplifier having a shorted channel. Sometimes a random part failure can cause this for no apparent reason.

You will then need to have it serviced at a service center.

I hope this was helpful, let me know if you need more help.

Whats wrong with my stereo


How old is your HK receiver? The power supply capacitors can get old and tired, and cause the hum and shutoff. Repair is an option.

How do I get the stereo sound through my tv so when I am watching my tv stations I get stereo?


Hi,your TV automatically switches to Stereo mode and a pilot lamp comes on most TV sets.
If you want to listen your TV on your Stereo system thru your receiver, you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks of your TV to "AUX input " or "Any input" of your receiver ( except Phone ) than just switch to respective mode corresponding your RCA connection..
There you go..Your TV sound is on the Receiver..
Take care and pls remember to rate me..

I have a LG47" tv


Your DVD audio is sent directly to your receiver - not to you TV. That's why you can hear the audio on your stereo. The TV audio is not being sent anywhere - it is "stuck" in the TV and is amplified and sent to the TV speakers. Since the TV speakers are off, you don't hear anything. In order to listen to the TV audio on the stereo system's speakers, you need to send it to the receiver.

You need to have a pair (left + right signals) of audio cables (assuming you wish to listen to stereo sound) from the TV's Audio Output jacks to a pair of Audio Input jacks on the receiver / amplifier. You can use any unused input - CD, Video, Tape, Sat, etc. If you use Tape or Sat audio inputs, when you wish to listen to the TV audio, you must select the Tape or Sat input on the receiver.

Do not send more than one signal to a set of inputs on the receiver. Typically, a CD, DVD and Sat inputs offer two or more of the following types 1) Analog audio. These are the older RCA jacks that have been around since the beginning and require separate cables for left and right channels. 2) Optical inputs. This is the newer digital interface that provides for Dolby Digital (and others) format sound over a single fiber optic cable. 3) Coaxial inputs. This jacks looks like an RCA jack, but usually has an Orange ring - instead of the Red & White rings that analog RCA jacks have. They use a single coaxial cable. 4) HDMI input. This jacks carries both digital video and digital audio signals. If you are using an Optical input for the DVD on the receiver, do not use any other unused analog or digital inputs associated with the DVD to "piggyback" another device like a CD , VHS tape, etc.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

How can I arrange the sound from DVD's to come from the Tv set rather than the MCD708 speakers


Run audio (and video) cables directly from the dvd player to the TV. Don't expect anything but stereo. BTW: this would be a good way to watch TV without the Philips turned on.

The BEST video from anything you watch should go to the TV (with analog audio); and the BEST audio fro manything you listen to should go to the Philips.

Background music is loud but voices are barely audible when watching a DVD through the receiver. The cable through the receiver works normal. Please help!!!


The natual dolby digital is meant to be listened to loud.
There is a setup feature on the receiver called ATT (for attenuation). Set this to medium or high. This is a general answer - not specific to your model. You may have to do it through a setup menu or some receivers have an ATT button on the remote.

Adding vcr & rec to a '93


Hello,
Please hook up VCR with TV through RF cable and check picture of VCR playback in TV.

Now you can hook DVD player video-audio out in VCR input and can have dvd playback picture in TV via VCR modulator.

If you want to listen sound via receiver then hook audio red-white cable between VCR audio out and receiver audio in terminals.

Let me know exact model numbers of units to help you out more.
Thank you.

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 need to plug the red and white cables from the audio out of your TV or the audio out of your cable box - you can't go from an in to an in
