4 Common problems with home theater & their diagnosis

Common problem with home theater system

A home theater makes your viewing experience just wow. The high picture quality and great surround sound makes you feel that the movie has come alive. But like any other electronic device you can also face some problems with home theater and need repair.

The most common issues with the home theater system are:

Home theater not turning on: It is a very common problem with home theater. A home theater system looks attractive from the front but has jungle of wires at the back. Many times during dusting and cleaning the important wires and cables get accidentally detached from the power outlet. Due to this detachment the system does not turn on. So thoroughly check the connection of cables and wires with the power outlet before calling a technician. Also check the battery of the remote control. If the batteries are dead, replace them with new ones.

Poor picture Quality: Sometimes it happens that the TV starts normally but after sometime the picture get distorted or discolored. To diagnose this issue, switch off the TV and unplug the cable carrying signal to the TV from the power outlet. Keep it in off mode for a minute and then plug it back and turn the power on. If it does not work connect the TV with other cable and check the picture quality. If the picture quality improves, it means that the problem was in the cable. If not, connect the TV with some other medium like play station or Xbox. If the picture is still distorted, this mean that the TV needs a repair.

Poor Sound or no sound at all: This is another common issue with home theater. In such situations first check whether the speaker is connected to the power outlets. Also check the remote control setting as sometimes we mute the sound. If that does not work, replace the cable carrying power to the speaker. But if the speaker does not produce sound, it is quite possible that your speaker needs repair.

No Signal from the home theater: A good quality home theater has multiple devices connected to each other like a TV, DVD player, cable box, speakers, stereos etc. In no signal situation go through each input device connected to the system, ensuring that the settings of each device is correct and matches with the manufacturer’s and service provider’s recommendation.

Other common problems with home theater can be DVD disc not playing, HDMI connection not working.

If the above diagnosis does not help you, it is best to contact an electronics repair professional. Home theater system is little complicated to deal and so it is recommended to take help of experienced technicians.

One advice is to keep the user guide or manual that you get with your home theater. It can be of great help in such situations.
