Question about Teac Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Hi, I bought a teac dvd and 5 speaker surround sound system yesterday. I am having trouble setting it up. I want to run the TV sound through it as well, but at the moment it is only going through the sub and we can't turn it down using the volume button. Plus when listening to music or a dvd the sound only runs through the sub and 2 other speakers. I have a 1996 philips TV, would you know whether its analog or digital etc sound as I don't know what to set it too. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks Brooke

    Thank you,


    I think maybe the speakers might be hooked up wrong, I'll look into that. Also how do I know which is the correct sound mode? 
    (Probably a silly question?=) )


    The manual isn't very helpful al all, its really brief. Normally I'm not too bad with these things but this seems overly complicated.

Whoa,ok.Sounds like things aren't connected properly.The first step is to disconnect the TV and concentrate on getting sound from a dvd or cd.Read the owners manual and double check that the speakers are hooked up correctly and that the unit is in the correct surround mode.Next, connect the TV.Use an RCA cable to go from an "Audio out" jack on the TV to an input jack on the Teac -e.g. "Aux, TV, etc.If your TV doesn't have the proper jack, I'm afraid you're out of luck.

    Hi-



    No such thing as a silly question when you're dealing with this stuff.....If your source (dvd) is in dolby digital and you have it hooked up with a optical/coax cable, then you would want it in Dolby digital-otherwise it really doeesn't mattter- your best bet would be dolby pro logic or play around and see which one sounds best-there are no hard and fast rules and every manufacturer makes up there own names.And you're right-the manuals are usually awful!!

Hi i have recently got a lg surround system without a manual, i think all the speakers are set up correctly as i have done a sound test on it and they all seem to make noise however i am having trouble...


You should have 2 RCA jacks on your TV and on the back of your receiver ... a white and a red. These are the left and right audio jacks. Generally, I hook up the audio out from the TV to the DVD player, then from there into the receiver ... this makes it easier to turn off the connection to your receiver if you want to use the TV speakers for news and whatever (by turning the DVD player off). Once the RCA cables are all hooked up, the information should have no problem transferring to your surround sound receiver. Now that the connections are all made, check the settings on your receiver. Make sure that you have the surround sound turned on, and that the receiver has all speakers selected (hunt through the menus and find the "dolby 5.1" or "THX" surround options and turn one on. This SHOULD resolve the problem.
If this did not repair your issue, make sure that all of your equipment that you are running through is all capable of surround sound (if you have a really cheap DVD player like me, it may not be able to handle surround sound). If your TV is surround capable (LCD, Projection, and Plasma TVs are usually all capable of this ... CRT tvs are not always capable) but your DVD player is not, hook your TV's audio RCA cables directly to your surround sound receiver and you should be set. If your TV and DVD player are not capable of Dolby or THX surround sound, then you will probably not be able to use that feature, so your satellite speakers might not work, but the main left and right should still work fine.
One other thing that I have had issues with in the past is the connections on the back of the receiver. If you are using speaker wire (a lot of newer systems have input jacks instead of wire because they are easier to deal with) then make sure you have stripped enough of the wire to make a good connection in the back of your receiver. If you have too little wire exposed, or if you have pushed the wires in too far, the insulator on the wire will block the connection. To be sure this is not the case, be sure that only the exposed part of the wire is sticking into the back of your receiver. Also, make sure that you are not trying to run too much wire between the receiver and the speakers -- if you have a 100ft wire between the system and the speakers, they might not be getting a strong enough signal to work -- you can buy a signal amplifier for your speaker wire, or you can use a shorter wire.
Most likely you have to find the settings in your menu and turn on the other speakers. If the sound test worked for all of the speakers, the connections are all good, and it is the system not telling the speakers to work.

IF ALL WIRES ARE CORRECTLY BEEN SETUP OR INSTALLED THEN THE NEXT STEP IS TO CONFIGURE THE SYSTEM TO WORK ON ALL SPEAKERS...

Before the setup of the speakers' channels
  • Press the SURR. button on the remote to select multichannel surround mode before adjusting the speaker settings.
  • In case of sound distortion, press and hold the SOUND button to select another transmission channel for the wireless rear speakers.
Setting Speakers' Channels
  1. Press 060227073157_11231.jpg to stop playback, then press SYSTEM MENU.
  2. Press 060227073234_11234.jpg repeatedly to select { Audio Setup Page }.
  3. Press 060227073211_11232.jpg060227073221_11233.jpg to highlight { Speaker Setup Page }, then press 060227073234_11234.jpg.

Notes:
  • 1 ms increase/decrease of delay time is equivalent to 30 cm change in distance. Use the longer delay time settings when the rear speakers are closer to the listener than the front speakers.

I have background sound on my TEAC HTX1800 DVD player, but I can't hear the people talking. Please help?! Regards /Hester


Chances are you are playing movies coded for Dolby Digital Surround. Depending on what kind of receiver your DVD player is plugged into, the receiver may not have the Center channel operating or turned up. Most all dialog comes from the center channel of a surround sound system. The receiver usually has a separate output for a center channel speaker, and a separate volume control as well. This will adjust the dialog volume up.
If you are not using a receiver, or plugged directly into the TV, check the audio settings on the TV. They may not be set up for the surround, hence why you are missing the dialog. Good Luck

Umi freeview dvd tv combo to surround sound


I am not familiar with the manufacture and model of your TV set. This does appear to be a compatibility issue between the TV set and its DVD player, and the surround speaker system. The TV set may not be able to directly send the proper information to the speakers. I would consider to call the manufacture support people to have a definate answer.

NO SOUND COMING FROM TV


I have connected my new surround sound to the dvd player as everything else runs through it. Also found that it has a seperate switch for 5.1 surround sound (all the speakers active) and ordinary stereo. I'm unfamiliar with yours, but check for this switch, mine was hidden on the back of the base speaker.

Hope this helps

Yes You need a cable that runs from your cable box to the Home Theater System. If it is analog cable then you can use basic Audio Rca Cables from Best Buy. If You have a High Def box I would recommend using a Audio Fiber Optic cable from the box to the surround sound.
