Only have sound on my front speakers with my HT - AS8 home theater system
I have checked all connections multiple times, and even swapped speakers connections to ensure that all the speakers are fully functioning. I only hear out of the front 2 speakers, nothing out of the 2 rear, center or sub. I'm pretty sure it is a programming issue, but for the life of me can't seem to figure this out. I'm not a novice at this, but am quickly running out of ideas. Please help.

This is a very common complaint that new users complain about. On your system or modt folks system, they say that the DVD will work fine on the surround but the TV set and or the radio will not. The biggest problem I have found regarding this is that the TV set is not connected through the correct audio plugs and/or the suround selector switch was set to the wrong surround setting. Look on your owners manual for the correct settings when using a TV set or set the setting to differant mode while having the TV set on.

If your Samsung HT-E330K home theater system is not producing any sound even though the power display seems to be working fine, there are several potential causes and troubleshooting steps you can try:
1. **Check Volume Levels:** Make sure the volume on the home theater system and the connected TV (if applicable) is turned up and not muted.
2. **Check Audio Source:** Verify that the correct audio source is selected on the home theater system. If you're using multiple input sources (DVD, TV, AUX, etc.), make sure the right input source is selected.
3. **Audio Cables:** Ensure that all audio cables are securely connected to both the home theater system and the audio source (TV, DVD player, etc.). Sometimes, loose or faulty cables can result in no sound.
4. **Speaker Connections:** Check that all speakers are properly connected to the home theater system and that the speaker wires are securely inserted into the appropriate terminals.
5. **Audio Settings:** Go through the audio settings on both the home theater system and the connected TV (if applicable). Ensure that the correct audio output settings are configured.
6. **Mute Function:** Double-check that the mute function on the remote control or the home theater system itself is not engaged.
7. **Speaker Balance:** Check the speaker balance settings to ensure that sound is not unintentionally directed to one side or speaker.
8. **Reset to Default Settings:** If you've made any changes to the settings recently, consider performing a factory reset to revert to the default settings.
9. **Firmware Update:** If there is a firmware update available for your home theater system, consider updating the firmware as it might resolve any software-related issues.
10. **Test with Different Source:** Test the home theater system with different audio sources to rule out issues with a particular device.
11. **Test Speakers:** If possible, disconnect each speaker one at a time and test the audio to identify if a particular speaker or speaker wire is causing the issue.
12. **Check Speaker Impedance:** Ensure that the speakers' impedance matches the specifications of the home theater system. Mismatched impedance can affect sound quality.
13. **Contact Support:** If you've tried these steps and still have no sound, consider contacting Samsung customer support or seeking assistance from a professional technician for further troubleshooting and repair.
Remember to refer to your device's user manual for specific instructions related to your model.
1. Connect the front left,
front right, center, and sub woofer speakers to the back of the home theater
the home theater system off, insert the TX card into the TX Card connection
(WIRELESS) on the back of the home theater. Important:
Make sure to insert the TX card with the slanted portion of the card facing
3. Connect the
rear left and the rear right speakers to the back of the SWA-3000.
4. Plug the power cord
of the SWA-3000 into an electrical wall outlet, and then switch the power
switch on the back of the SWA-3000 to [ON]
Your systemn is designed and built to perform 2.1 sound. If you want 5.1 sound you can do 2 things, connect another pair of speakers to the same speakerterminal as your front speakers, however this produces 5.1 stereo sound and not 5.1 surround sound. You can buy a new system that has the proper connections.
This set will not have the proper decoding software to produce 5.1 surroundsound. sorry.
With the home theater system off, press and hold the REMAIN button on the home theater's remote control for 5 seconds. Note: You can release the REMAIN button when the POWER LED blinks blue/Red depending on model.
With the SWA-3000 turned on, use a ball point pen to press the RESET button on the back of the SWA-3000. The POWER LED in the front of the home theater blinks two times.
