try yellow cable into the green y input.
http://en-americas-support.nintendo.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3008/~/unable-to-locate-a-yellow-video-input-on-the-tv

The problem is that av output is going into component in
If the green port doesn't work I read on another forum that
you may be able to use a dvd recorder unit to take the av in and then it can re transmit the video to an output as component out on some dvd recorders.

If it really says, "Push power protector", there should be a reference to it in your owner's manual. Check there first.

Since noone else gave you a good answer I will. I lost some cables to mine a while ago and found this awesome jerry rig solution; Go to radio shack, and ask for '14-16 gauge star ring terminal connectors' Should come in a pack of 10 and be about 2$. On the back of the unit where these connectors fit, there should be two prongs. You will need two star-rings for each connector slot. Wire up your connectors and crimp the ends LIGHTLY with a pair of pliers. The star-ring connector connected to the negative wire should be inserted to the left prong, (left if you are facing the back of the unit), and the right prong is the positive. If you did everything correctly, you should be able to make your own wires for sony stereo systems whenever you need to. Saved my ***, hope it did the same for you. Here is a link to what they look like. http://www.shopping.com/radio-shack-non-insulated-crimp-on-star-ring-terminals-10-pack/info

Reposting from multiple sources.
It seems like most (maybe all) Sony HTIB do not work with the Comcast Custom Remote. I've found a work around that fixes the volume control and power button though. Hope it helps you all. I have a DAVHDX275 but I think this will work for most Sony HTIB systems.

What you need to do is steal some codes from a like product and then hardcode in the changes you need to the comcast remote. Set your AUX to 21232 (a sony code for TVicon1.png/VCRs).

Then do the following:

1. While still on AUX, press and hold SETUP again until the remote blinks twice
2. Type 994
3. Press and release SETUP
4. Type 32975
5. Press and release VOL+
The remote should blink twice. That should reprogram the VOL+ to work with your Sony HT device. For each of the following function codes, follow the same steps and use the codes listed below:
Vol+ = 32975
Vol- = 31951Power = 32719Mute = 33743
Good luck. Let me know if it works.


Also, to program your remote to function volume controls while in CBL or TV mode without switching between modes to change the volume, see below. Source http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=8831Quote:Locking Volume Control To TV or AUX Mode:
1. Press and hold SETUP until the Red light flashes twice, then release SETUP.
2. Enter 9 - 9 - 3 (Red light will flash twice).
3. Press and release either TV or AUX (Red light for selected device will flash twice).

It is possible that the amplifier had encountered a fault with a higher current drain which had triggered it to a protection fault condition. The fault can be your output drivers- the MOSFETS/IC's fitted for both the channels, Use a meter after disconnecting to check for short in the drivers. Disconnect the positive and negative voltages to the output and see if the protect changes. Even a fault in the preamp stages that drives in high current into the output can shut the Amplifier. Sometimes this can be a noise like a HUM or HISS before the protect works. Faulty capacitors in these circuits also can cause similar issues and needs close observation.
You need to confirm and replace the specific stages or outputs. If not there can be issues in the mother board, maybe the protect circuit by itself is shutting off due to a faulty bias , maybe a leak in any voltage/current sensing circuit. Also disconnect the speakers and test, if the protect is off then check for short on the speakers.

Thank you for using Fixya

Which direction do you expect audio to be flowing: from or to the TV? The HDMI is an outbound connection for video. Page 71 describes how to enable the DVD AUDIO ONLY if you really want TV speakers to be competing with the DAV.

The video system setting of the TV must be compatible with the video system setting of the DVD player. These video systems include NTSC-M, NTSC-J, PAL-M, PAL-N, NTSC 4.43 and others. Make sure both are set to same system or you may simply set the TV video system to AUTO.
Other possible reason of this problem is the connection between the TV and the player. Make sure everything is clean and snug fit.

I hope this helps.

Most of the distance mentioned in ads and manuals are direct line of sight. As the number of walls between the transmitter and receiver increase the range keeps dropping drastically. Its not the distance but the obstacles that come in between that matter.

Failure of a digital feed can't be channel-specific. The bitstream either works or it doesn't.

It sounds more like an analog audio feed with a failing channel cable. What path does the "TV" audio follow before it gets to that fibre optic cable?

I'd draw the sound from the Cable Box and bypass the TV.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

Hmm, blind people 'watching' and no audio? What would that leave?

Hi,

TheSony Audio Interactive Radio Frequency (S-AIR) is a wireless digital audiotransmission signal that plays surround sound using a radio frequency that canbe placed anywhere that is convenient within the maximum communication distancewithout the signal breaking up. The system can transfer up to four channels ofCD quality (48kHz, 16 bits) audio data with no data compression.
You have to pair the S-Airunit with the Main HTS unit. When the sound transmission is not established,the indicator of the S-AIR sub unit does turnsoff, flashes or turns Red. Please try the steps mentioned below and checkif the issue can be resolved: · Make sure that there is no other S-Air unit nearthe one which you're using. If any, place it more than 8 meters (26 1/4 feet)away from the unit. · Make sure that the units that you are trying topair are within one meter (3 feet) of each other. · Confirm that the ID of the main unit and theS-AIR sub unit are set to the same ID. · You performed pairing the main unit and anotherS-AIR sub unit. Perform the pairing steps again with the desired S-AIR subunit. · The unit is paired to another S-AIR sub unit. Cancelpairing. · Install the S-AIR main unit and S-AIR sub unitaway from other wireless products. · Stop using another wireless product long enoughto confirm if the S-AIR main unit and S-AIR sub unit gets connected. · The S-AIR sub unit is turned off. Make sure theAC power cord is connected and turn on the S-AIR sub unit. How to cancelpairing? · Perform the ID setting of the unit as follows: · Press POWER to turn the unit on. · Press the FUNCTION +/- button repeatedly untilDVD appears in the front panel display. · Press DISPLAY while the system is in the STOPmode. · Once the CONTROL MENU display appears on the TVscreen, press the up arrow or down arrow to select SETUP , and then press + . · Once the options for SETUP appears, press the uparrow or down arrow to select CUSTOM , and then press + . · Once the SETUP display appears, press the uparrow or down arrow to select AUDIO SETUP and then press + . · Once the options for AUDIO SETUP appears, pressthe up arrow or down arrow to select S-AIR SETUP , and then press + . · Press the up arrow or down arrow to select ID ,and then press + . · Press the up arrow or down arrow to select thedesired ID, and then press + . · Once you select an ID (A, B, or C), theconfirmation display appears. · Once you have selected a new ID (or evenselected the same ID as before), pairing is cancelled.
