1. My Home Theater system has Surround Sound, but there isn't any sound coming from the surround sound or center speakers. What should I do?
Put the unit through an audio test by using the remote and putting the system in surround sound mode. If the test shows there is sound coming out of the speakers, then the speakers are connected correctly. If the test shows that there is no sound coming out of the speakers, check the connections.
2. Why isn't there any sound coming from my speakers?
The problem may be caused by faulty or incorrect speaker connections. First, make sure that the speaker wires are plugged into the receiver all the way. Then make sure that the speakers are connected to the right jack on the back of the receiver, and that the positive and negative are matched correctly.
3. Is it possible to connect a different video source, such as a VCR, to the Home Theater System?
Yes, to connect the VCR, you have to connect the VCR's input to the video output of the system. Then connect the output of the VCR to the input of a TV.
4. How do you connect an equalizer to an audio receiver?
An equalizer is connected to an audio receiver through a tape deck. On the back of the tape deck, there are jacks for the equalizer designated as "play out" and "record in." The equalizer has the same jacks. Connect "play in" on the equalizer to "play out" on the tape deck. Then connect "record out" on the equalizer to "record in" on the tape deck.
5. Why isn't there any sound coming from the speakers when the turntable plays?
Make sure the connections are aligned. The turntable may not be connected to the correct input on the receiver. The correct connection for the turntable is "phono in" jack on the receiver. If the receiver does not have a "phono in" connector, the turntable may not be able to be connected directly to the receiver.
6. Are speakers sold as accessories?
No, not usually, although parts distributors may occasionally have accessory speakers. The important details to consider when purchasing or replacing speakers for your Home Theater system are watt output and ohm range.
