I love this system. It is inexpensive and puts out some good sound. I've already taken it in to replace the fan in the player though, and now the rear speakers are wierd.
When the rear speakers are chosen in the surround settings, they buzz. It isn't the speakers because I switched out the center speaker with one of the rear speakers, and the center speaker made the same buzz noise. It also doesn't matter what level the volume is, it makes the same buzz regardless. Music still comes out of it, but it is slightly delayed and sounds echo-ish. I think this means it is an output problem. Do I need to take it in to get it repaired?
Thanks for any help or ideas!!!

Mine works when plugged in, but dead when not plugged. Found fuse, subtly hidden in lower part of AC power receptacle; pried out with small screw driver. Looked good & passed ohmmeter check. I loved the beast when it functioned. It spent a year in the garage; it didn't work when I brought it in. Charge light on for 8 seconds after plugging in, then off.
Check to make sure your wires are hooked up right. A good way to check your wires is to pull the cd player out. unhook - and + to right rear speaker. Touch the - and + to corresponding ends of a AA battery. Have someone in the trunk to see if the speaker moves. If it doesn't, replace your wire going back or maybe a bad speaker. if it does move and you hook it back to the cd player right, and there is still no sound...it is the cd player. Best of luck to you!
I had the very same problem, and found that if you power up the receiver in DVD/CD mode, or tap the function button to display DVD/CB mode, the Wireless Rear Speaker AMP will automatically recognize and turn on the sound. This work around was not posted anywhere in the manual, just 1 of many workarounds I have had to put up with this system to work. Right now my fan went and it just keeps shutting down, I have had this system for about 15 months and very disappointed with the quality. My DVD player stopped working a few months ago, so now the system is rendered useless, not even sure it is worth fixing at this point since it is no longer under warrenty.
seems to be an issue with this model, i cant play any discs, the sound is only coming from the left rear speaker and the sub, the system shuts off every half hour due to overheating...needless to say the system sucks...didnt last long...im very tech savvy and still couldnt figure out why all of this was happening.
im looking at samsung now...everything else i have is samsung and love it.
I had the same problem. It turns out one of the speaker wires was pulled out from the speaker and the and -ve were tangled. Once I separated them and put them back in the speaker, the system started working fine.

Try all of the spaekers on the channel you know works. If all are fine, swap the speaker lines to test them. Is the input a DVD player on RCA cables? A bad signal cable from a component can be a source for problem. Connect the speakers directly to the amp(if possible) bypassing the sub box. If all works without the box, suspect bad crossover or in the self-powered boxes a bad amp.
