This could be a short on one or more of the speaker cables. I suggest you remove all speaker cables and try the amp again. If it does not switch off this would indicate a short on a speaker cable, so turn it off again and reconnect one speaker cable and try again. Do this with each cable in turn until the problem re-occurs, and you have now found the offending speaker cable. Check it for shorts at both ends.

This may not be the problem, of course, but should be your first investigation.

Samsung Surround Sound & Palsonic TV = no surround sound on TV


Do you have an optical audio output jack on your tv? Some tv's don't output audio from that jack unless you go into the setup menu and turn in on.

You can turn off the 7.2 channel surround sound system if you only want to listen to audio on the TV channels, you may need to increase the volume levels on the TV.
Use the 7.2 channel surround sound when you want surround sound when playing DVD movies.

I have a Panasonic HT-692 surround sound system. Any time I use the surround sound features and turn the volume to a higher level(not ear piercing mind you) the system cuts off as if a ckt breaker has


If you are playing the unit that loud, for an extended time it sounds like the unit is going into overload, meaning it's getting to hot. Try turning the volume down to 1/2 of your current level. If it stays running, you will have to cut back on your volume, before you seriously damage the unit(or your hearing)

I am having trouble getting my surround sound to output my foxtel dvd using standard av cords is there anywhere i can get a diagram


Hi, I'm not too sure what you're asking - do you mean that sound is only coming out of 2 of the speakers? A lot of foxtel shows aren't meant for surround sound - usually only box office movies.

For best results, use a digital optical cable (not the one with a round end, one that's fibre optic, say that to a store and they will give you the right one) - connect to the optical/toslink input of your surround sound system.

You may have to turn on "dolby pro logic 2" to get all speakers working on some shows. Or you can try just plugging in the 2 red/white stereo cables into the amp, and using pro logic that way. Pro logic creates surround sound, even when your show is only stereo.

I guess that will do it .


Have a nice day.

Only the back ground sound is heard, can't here what the main actors are saying, Samsung BD-P1500, HT-AS720S, and Series 7 750 TV, trying to play a DVD, Dolby Surround 5.1


If your sound is set to Surround Sound or Dolby Surround Sound and you haven't got the rest of the system set up to balance, that is why you can only hear some of the audio. Turn off the surround sound to see what I mean.

Sound only from left front and right front speakers possibly my projection screen tv is only 2.1 channel does this mean i cannot have surround


surround receivers are supposed to be able to turn a stereo signal into a surround signal.  if the surround unit is producing just a stereo sound, then the tv is most likely outputting in mono, and not stereo; or there is no surround sound to decode..

The click will be a relay to protect the main amp overloading. In many ways you are driving the amp to hard, unless there is a fault on the main amp which means it can't take the full load that it should handle. One cause of this for example would be a speaker that is either the wrong ohms, or of a lower wattage than what the amp can put out. Or in some cases a faulty speaker, or if the wiring is not good shorts when the speaker shakes when a very loud noise comes from it.
Things to check:
1 That no speaker is lower ohms than the amp.
2 That no speaker is lower in watts (RMS) than the amps total output for that channel it is on. Remember not all surround amps have the same volume on each channel.
It is of course possible to use smaller wattage speakers. But if you have an amp that can output say 200w. Connecting an 80w speaker to it would really limit the amount the volume control could be raised to.
3 Each speaker is working right. Plus all connections are neat with NO possibility of shorting.

If all of these are good then you have a fault on the main power amp. Probably one or more of the output device(s)
