Home Theatre System Probllems

A Home Theatre System is designed to provide a cinema experience in your private home. With the help of effective video and audio equipment they allow the viewers to enjoy an enhanced quality of image and sound. These theater systems are manufactured with components that are of higher quality than average television sets with normal in-built speakers. They intend to give an option of extra entertainment to the consumers. Below are frequent asked questions on issues relating to Home Theatre System installations that have been answered by the Experts.

My Samsung home theatre system, when turned on, flashes ‘Protection’ on its display window and then automatically turns off. The unit goes into the protection mode even after I unplug all the speakers. How can I fix this problem?

In a case like this, it seems likely that there could be a failure in the power supply board of your TV set. The best thing would be to disconnect the home theatre, leave it like that for twenty four hours and then try to turn it on. This would perform an effective soft reboot of the unit and also cause the capacitors that are located inside the unit to discharge. Usually, some of the capacitors on the power supply board may turn out to be defective inside a unit. In case you are not comfortable with soldering and do not have a good multi-meter, it would always be best for you to take the home theatre system to a local electronic repair shop. However, as an alternative option, always check with the company you purchased from to see if the home theater system is still under manufacture warranty.

How can one connect a Toshiba HDTV to a Vizio home theater soundbar, if the RCA cable that was provided does not fit the digital output of the TV?

In this situation, what you would have to do is use an Optical Digital to Analog Converter Box to connect your home theatre system to your television set. To get various models and brands of the Optical Converter Box, you would want to click on http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=optical+digital+to+analog. These converter boxes would be available to you within a range of fifteen to eighty dollars on this website.

My DVD home theatre system works fine while watching a DVD. However, my speakers do not function properly when I am watching my Sony TV. I have AT&T Uverse for my cable connection. How can I fix it?

The reason this is probably happening is because your TV may be using an Optical jack for its audio output and your Sony system seems to be incompatible with such a connection. Therefore, if you want to get an improved audio quality from your TV, you would need to have an additional connection between the TV and home theatre system. This will allow the Sony’s speakers to play the regular TV broadcasts. Moreover, purchasing an inexpensive Optical to Analog Converter Box would be a good solution to this problem. In this case, all you would need to do is to run the standard RCA cable from this converter to the home theatre system after you have connected an Optical cable from the TV to the converter. Additionally, you could visit http://avaccessparts.com/Audio-DAC-180-997avap.htm if you want to purchase an Optical to Analog Converter. However, for an Optical cable, you may want to click on http://avaccessparts.com/ODC-6-Toslink-Optical-Digital-Audio-Cable-6-ft-180-948avap.htm.

Home Theatre is a home entertainment system that tries to approximate the movie theatre experience in a home environment using high-tech audio and video components. It can be set up in a dormitory, office or in any room of your house. It may vary from a custom built system with in-wall speakers and a video projector to a simple twenty seven inch TV with home theatre-in-a-box system. If you need clarification about your specific situation with respect to issues related to Home Theatre Systems, you may ask a TV technician Expert to evaluate your case details and provide a technical insight.
