Our wireless speakers on our Wireless DVD Receiver (HT903WA)are not conecting to the transmitter. The transmitter light used to be blue when they aere communicating now it flashes red and blue. Any ideas?

Speakers have a unique RF frequency that needs to pair with the receiver (kind of like a blue tooth headset with a cell phone). At times, the signal may reset, so, you may have to go through the initial pairing sequence. Try this: 1. Unplug rear speakers 2. Make sure the sound signal connector is plugged in to the back of the system properly. 3. Press and hold the ID button for 3 seconds until the blue LED light flickers. 4. Connect the power chord to the rear speakers.

I do know that the transmitter would not transmitt the HD audio. I had to also hook up the analog signal from my DVR and BLU RAY so the sound would get transmitted from the amp to the transmitter and on to my speakers
There are many options here. Most HDTVs today have analog audio and digital audio output jacks. You can use RCA audio cables or a 3.5mm connector, whichever your HDTV has to connect the analog stereo output of the TV to any number of devices such as a stereo/amp which has speakers attached. You could also connect an FM transmitter to the TV and send the audio wirelessly to a nearby FM radio, boombox, portable etc. Most HDTVs today have a digital audio output, typically optical, which uses a digital audio cable ($15) to connect to a surround sound receiver. You can also connect the stereo analog output jack on the TV to a 2.4GHz transmitter and receiver speaker combo to get wireless audio outside, in a swimming pool and so forth, all around the house using wireless speakers. These setups usually cost around $150 or so. Look for the jack on the TV labeled AUDIO OUT and see if it is the white and red 2 jack ports or the smaller 3.5mm single jack port. Adapter cables are available at Radio Shack for around $10 should you need them. So you see the options are almost endless.
This unit is not as flexible as traditional receivers are as far as speakers are concerned. Speakers are labeled and *must* be connected to the correct speaker terminals.
Upon reading the manual - it is quite apparent that the only provisions for rear surround speaker connections is <i>only</i> via the optional wireless transmitter / receiver hardware. The optional digital transmitter is connected via a proprietary plug on the rear of the SC-BT100. The optional receiver amplifies the received signal and passes it to the connected surround speakers. I would bet that there are no provisions for amplifying a surround L and R speaker channel inside the SC-BT100, and that it only provides a low level (like a "tape out") or un-amplified signal to the transmitter plug. Even if you were to manage to get the surround speaker connections made up there - you would not be able to hear anything from them - as there is no amplifier. The amplifier is contained in the wireless receiver, and is largely why it requires a connection to house current.
Unfortunately, I doubt you'll find a way to listen the surround channel audio from the SC-BT100 without the optional transmitter / receiver and the integrated amplifier.
You can review the manual like I did here: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/SCBT100.PDF
the problem is the transmitter. it is generating undesired signal. in all wireless communications if the transmitting end creates oscillations other than which is desired - they are termed noises. ur receiver unit happens to pick up one of those noises and is able to amplify it. a qualified tech will be able to identify the frequency range and filter that out on the transmitter stage. if the warranty covers it- replace!
There isn't anything too simple about wireless communications. First you need a transmitter. Your headphone output would be a likely source for your transmitter. Once you have that in place you will need a receiver of the same operating frequency as your transmitter. The receiver will demodulate the signal and you will be left with a low voltage audio signal which would then need to be amplified. Amplifier power gain would be dependent upon a few things. Size of speaker, output power desired etc etc. All in all it would be cheaper to buy one. Good Luck!
I'm having this same problem; it worked all ok in the beginning then one day it didn't and no matter what I try it doesn't seem to connect. Similarly im getting the W1 flashing and even when I take the receiver and move it closer (even within a few feet) it still wont pick it up. I've removed the wireless home phone and baby monitor from within the room without any result. I cannot think of anything else that could be interfering. Any advice or resolution would be much appreciated.
Hi, I had the same problem, it seems to be a design error of LG or a typical problem with some component in the wireless transmitter. It is basically caused by the transmitter heating up, leading to a clock drift with the result of the receiver losing the signal. I tried to cool the transmitter in the fridge before using so it will run for about half an hour before producing this error (depends on the room temperature as well). My solution is to remove the plastic case of the transmitter unit and place it in a cool place where it does not catch heat from other devices. Without the case it does not overheat and also takes less space, just be careful if you have children. I placed the naked Tx unit behind the TV so it does not matter. Hope this works for you as well.
Your connection between the AR transmitter and the ONKYO receiver sounds solid. I'd guess it's the wireless speakers that are the wrong point, or at least that's what I'd look at first.
Doing a bit of research, I noticed a couple minor points.
First, these seem prone to RF interference from other RF devices. Have to tried switching channels on them?
Second, someone reported theirs would not work properly unless the speakers were turned on just before the transmitter, and turned off shortly after the transmitter. Apparently you have to hold the button on the front in for 5 seconds to turn the speakers on or off.
I know that's rather basic, but it's been a few days and no one else has responded, so I figured we should start somewhere.
We tried this but it still doesn't work any other suggestions
