The buttons on this machine are gated with a mechanical mechanism (under the buttons in the machine -= you can't see it) that acts as a "gate" to control how the buttons behave. This mechanism is probably stuck and needs to be looked at by someone with mechanical inclination - short of calling customer service for service locations. It shouldn't be that expensive to fix. Good luck.

The SB-WA350 is the sub-woofer for the SC-HT900 home theater system. See the manual here at Panasonic's support page, , or ManualsLib, . The manual lists the system cable as part K1HA25HA0001.
