    Swapping or defining the cause as board problem is not the answer I was lookng for. The problem is likely the board but my concern is that this has occurred more than once before and it could be a characteristic type of problem. I have removed the cover and there is no visible indication ( such as fuses, damaged components, etc). Please review and see if you can provide another remedy.

If the speaker test fails with no sound, then the output amplifier section is turned off. This can happen if a problem is detected internally and the section is disabled. The shutdown occurs to prevent further damage to either the speakers or the amplifier section. If you can solder, you may be able to repair this yourself. I don't have the listing for your model with me at the moment, so I can't give you all of the probable parts. Please confirm that the model is DAV-S300 as well.

Thanks,
Dan

It seems like the amplifier IC or transisors became defective. In order to replace them you should know how to solder and read a schematic diagram to perform different test on the circuitry before you can pint point the defective component.
How old is your system?

If you can also try using another audio jack just to make sure that it's not a problem with the audio cable..

Hope that helps.......

Why? no sound from the speskers at all.


There are a few things that could cause no sound and although some are obvious I'll got through them all..

1) Sound is on Minimum

2) Sound is Muted

3) No Power to Subwoofer

4) Speakers connected Incorrectly or Faulty

5) No AUDIO IN connections to TV-IN or AUX-IN

6) Incorrect Input Source is Selected (See Below)


Connecting audio from TV

When connecting the audio output from your TV to this Home Theater Audio System, you will have the sound of the

TV output on all the speakers. It will enable you to enjoy the multi-channel surround sound capabilities.


Use an audio cable (red/white - not supplied) to connect the TV IN jacks on this DVD system to the AUDIO OUT

jacks on the TV. To listen to the sound, press TV on the remote control as the sound source that you want to play.


Connecting audio from an audio/video device

This DVD system provides analog and digital audio connection. You can connect the audio output from an

audio/video device (e.g. VCR, Cable/Satellite Box) to this Home Theater Audio System in order to enjoy the

multi-channel surround sound capabilities.

Use an audio cable (red/white - not supplied) to connect the AUX IN jacks on this DVD system to the AUDIO OUT

jacks on the connected device. To listen to the sound, press AUX/DI to select "AUX" as the sound source that

you want to play.

Or

Use a coaxial cable (not supplied) to connect the DIGITAL IN jack on this DVD system to the DIGITAL OUT jack on

the connected device. To listen to the sound, press AUX/DI to select "DI" as the sound source that you want to play.


Please leave feedback

Rear speakers do not work , also in set up menu they are grayed out.


hi there

when playing radio, the rear speakers do work because you have configured that. in your dvd player however, you may not have configured it yet.

Correctly insert the jacks at the back of the dvd player and at the same time, check the menu of your dvd player and check the audio settings. Under the audio settings of your dvd player menu, select the 5.1 or 6.1 audio profile.

hope this helps.

Hi, You have to make sure you are using the "audio out" from the dvd/surround into the "audio in" on your TV also in some case TVs will need to change the "input" with your remote to see where you connected your dvd/sur also some TVs have a switch for "n" or "off" for internal speakers and also you could have that option in your audio menu on your TV, Hope it help, good luck.

Why can't we get the sound to work by hooking the DVD player directly to the tv?


The JVC system is designed to output audio only via the speaker terminals at the rear of the system. There is NO provision to send audio directly to the TV from the system.

Page 14 of the manual (link provided below - free to download) details the connections available to a TV. These connections are limited to three types of connections: 1) "Video" for standard TVs which is "good" 2) "S-Video" for TVs that have an S-Video input jack which is "better" (both #1 and #2 are considered "composite" types).

The third type is called "Component" which is used for TV's that are capable of "progressive scan" video input which is "best" for the system. Notice that the jacks on the DVD player are labeled "Y", "Pb" and "Pr", not "Video", "Left" and "Right". This type video signal requires the use of three cables - they do not send audio as you may be used to see on all but the newer TVs. TVs capable of displaying "progressive scan" video have a better looking picture when using these jacks. Incorrectly connecting the video from the DVD to the TV audio inputs (Left & Right) will likely result in noise or hiss from the TV speaker.

To recap - audio can only be played through the JVC system's speakers. Use the highest quality video jacks that BOTH your TV and the DVD player supports.

I hope this was Very Helpful and enjoy your DVD and TV!

You may have to set a speaker preference for the TV. Look in the Audio section of the Setup menu to see if you can turn off the TV speakers and route the output through the jacks

If the cable tv has audio out jacks, or if you have a cable box with an optical audio cable, plug either the audio jacks into the RCA system or the optical audio cable, and the system should automatically simulate 5.1, through Dolby Pro Logic II. All speakers will not be at the same volume as they are simulating surround sound, not just playing the audio.

The TV will never have sound for the DVD as this system has no audio out puts. Realistically, most televisions have 10w speakers, and this system is 130w, so the TV speakers are useless in comparison.

Can't get surround sound for tv shows


The coby dvd 988 has 2 rca audio input jacks, you need to have these connected to your TV AUDIO OUT jacks, these are usually colored red and white like right and left stereo jacks, be sure to set up the TV for AUDIO output through these connections, some tv`s require that the internal built in speakers are cancelled and the audio output jacks are enabled. Set the coby input signal to receive the port you pluged the tv signal into.

No 5.1 surround when adding a Philips upconvert player to the San


Sounds like you are getting analog signals from your componet cables and a true digital input from your HDMI into your tv.

However that unit is Analog audio input x 1 only.
So i dont think your going to get true digital surround sound.
The problem being

Home theater sound


Most plasmas have set of RCA jacks beside or near each video input, be it a yellow composite jack, component (RGB) or VGA (15 pin monitor cable) there should be a red &white set of jacks beside each input. There should be a r&w set marked audio out.thats what you want goin' to the Hi-Fi a/v input. All this is on the assumption that the plasma has no speakers of it's own. if it does, you may need to go to set up menu and check audiosettings on the tv.Your best bet is to go HDVI between the DVD/Sound if you have the ability on both units. Better vid and audio that way.
