No sound from my home theater system when switching it on
There is no sound coming from my home theater system when I power it up. All of the speakers are connected properly. The fuses is good. There are no wires touching. It is connected to PC. But I still cannot get sound from it, even if I connect it to any other device. Is it time for a replacement, or must I go into the subwoofer. All the cables I need are connected. I tried all that I could try. Ifs there anything else I can do before I ditch the system?
