Why would the sockets be bad??Is it that you move around the wires and the sound comes and goes?? Most likly it would be the rear channel amp. IC and this is a non consumer serviceable part. Check out the speakers on the front channel by switching the wires. If they come on then you know you have a problem with the rear Amp circuit. Contact a local repair shop and see if they can handle this repair . If not contact 800-211-PANA. Good Luck

No rear sound in philips home cinema

Sometimes the rear sound or other speakers can accidentally get switched off, when changing sound modes. Check that this has not happened. Most amps have test modes that send out beeps or some other form of noise to the speakers. Try that and see if they are working.
If you can't find anything that has switched them off and there are no beeps on the channel. It could be that the amp that controls the rear channels has failed.

It may be favorable to simply purchase a rear wireless speaker system all by itself and use the existing system for surround sound applications. Monoprice . Com has some units are a good price.

unwrap the cables and match them to their colour on the back of the speakers, front side, back rear, front & woofer.
Plug in the connections to the back of the DVD player, again all coded.
Turn system on and it will guide you through the sound setup, what this does is tweak the speakers for balance and power, then place the sound check mic in the middle of the room, then its best to get close to the door and press ok to test system, then leave the room shut the door while the sound configures, it takes about 3 - 4 mins and high pitch noise shoots around the room. buy 3 Optical Cables for PS3/HDTV and a Splitter, all working perfect.
Put on your favourite film and sit back and watch,
Playing on PS3, you need to go into audio setup to change to optical audio, this then allows the system to go through the home cinema.
just switch on the TV setting on your home cinema (aka DVD player) and this triggers your sound for the PS3. If you are using this late like I am having a young family it is best to turn the night setting on (easy click on the remote) this reduces the woofer base allowing everyone to enjoy the eve/night;-)

I have been using it for a week now and am still amazed by the quality.

In a Nutshell - HDTV (with Optical Out), Playstation 3 (with Optical Out) and the Home Cinema (with Optical out), I advise buying 3 optical cables and a splitter, one from the home cinema to the splitter main input, then channel one from the splitter to Playstation 3 and channel two from the splitter to HDTV. Its best to note that the Optical Cables do take preference over HDMI Cable therefore no sound will work through your system, with PS3 you have to go into the Sound Settings and change from HDMI to Optical and select the 5.1 channel for total surround.

Sony BDV 370 home cinema system and Sony 40hx703 television. The home cinema plays disks etc. through the cinema speakers. But will not play television sound through the cinema speakers it is connected...

You need to use a HDMI 1.4 Cable and it needs to be connected to to an HDMI socket with an ARC (audio return channel). Alternatively you can connect using an optical cable (TOSLINK).

No sound from our Sony Wireless Home Cinema System

Basic checks first. Have you checked they are connected properly? Maybe used a different cable to check whether the rear cables are faulty? You may just have turned your system to 2.1 surrououn sound by accident or be playing a format that only supports 2.1. Check that in the system menu under dec. mode that if it is set to AFD STD that you are playing a DVD which shows can support 5.1 on the back of its cover. Also try running the setup manually and choosing your speaker configuration. Hope this helps.

Jvc rx-e100rsl home cinema control center

unless there are some other connectors that may be used, i would think that the issue would be resolvable thru the system settings menu, there may be a speaker arrangement setting somewhere in the menus. The Sub is a .1 setting like 5.1 or 7.1, perhaps even 2.1 where the beginning number is the speaker channels and .1 is the sub. I would think with the sub being on a mono channel it woul/should work with any setting. If there is any more info you could supply I will further research this issue and try to help you get the sub working.
