    Hi, all I new in this great forum.

    I just bought AV with digital and coaxial digital out, and I'm using digital fiber from DVD to AV, last night strange cracking sound come out from speaker, the I unplug the digital cable from AV and plug it back after I switch back my AV no sound is coming out from speaker.

    Now I swish back to coaxial cable, any help please.

    Thank in advance.



    Sorry for my English grammar.

    Dass,

    I'm not quite understanding exactly what you're facing.

    - "no sound is coming out from speaker"--do you mean that there isn't any sound coming out of ANY of your speakers, or that a single, specific speaker is silent?

    - is this "no sound" situation true for all inputs (CD, cable, radio, etc.) or only when using your DVD player?

    - is your "coaxial cable" (digital coaxial, correct?) working fine? If so, do you really need to troubleshoot the digital fiber connection?

    Thank Mike for reply,

    Maybe my digital fiber connection is the problem, how to troubleshoot this cable. About the sound yes no sound at all from the entire speaker. After cracking sound my AV (Robertson Audio) DIGITAL SOURCE (Display Panel) is blinking that mean my A/V dint’s receive signal from DVD, now I'm using coaxial RG6(custom made) and it work fine.

    Go back to my first question is how to troubleshoot this digital fiber cable.

    Thank.

    Dass,

    The easiest way to "troubleshoot" your fiber cable may be by trying a different fiber cable in its place. If that new cable works, I guess that old cable is bad in some way (it happens). If the new cable doesn't work, well, time to pull out a flashlight, get behind those components, and really look closely at the output jacks--maybe there's dirt/dust in there, etc.? Or maybe one just failed. . .
