Have you configured A-1 or V-2 (which ever you are using) to receive optical (the default is analog stereo).
From the manual:
1) switch to A-1 (e.g.).
2) press SYS then SETUP.
3) press < or > until you see 'INPUT' is the display.
4) Use the ^ or v buttons to select input to use (INPUT OPTICAL).
5) Press ENTER to complete the setting.
I would like to do exactly this on my DV55 but I do not have an original remote. My replacement cannot do step 2.

I can't find a picture of it/them but in general you want to get the BEST audio to your hifi electronics and let stereo-only TV-related audio go TO the TV itself.

FACT: TV speakers are there as a convenience. If they were comparable to hifi electronics and speakers we wouldn't by anything but a TV, right?

CORRELARY: TV is not itself an audio source. Everything it displays and projects soundwise comes from somewhere else at a higher 'fi' than it can reproduce.

So, get your BEST satellite or cable box digital audio out through either coaxial or optical cables to the Pioneer, if it has compatible inputs. This way you can decode multichannel audio broadcasts in electronics designedf for it.

There will also be a stereo pair of RCA jacks at the Sat/Cable boxes that you can run to the TV if it has multiple analog audio inputs. That way you can watch and hear CNN or the Weather on the TV without cranking up the Pioneer.

If you MUST have a TV audio feed to the Pioneer, use its RCA analog audio out to any available input. The TV may have internals controls for volume at those jacks. I recommend choosing a FIXED output level so you can turn the TV speakers down or off and still listen through the Pioneer. But it will be in vanilla stereo only.

Hi, I have the same system and had the same problem with the drive door refusing to open when you press the open button. I fixed it quite easily, unplug every thing, on the rear of the unit, remove the two screws holding the top rear cover on. This will reveal two plastic securing clips for the front top cover, release these and the top cover will slide off easily. You will find that there are two bent over hook wires, where the button is and if you look at the under side of the top cover, you will see two metal contact strips that are suppose to touch these wires. All i did was bend the wires out a little so that they made better contact with the sensor strips. Put it all back together again and hey, it worked right away. Good luck, Richard

Try running a cleaning disc. After that it worked for me.
I have a XV-DV323

Typically no. The device should plug into the wall, and amplify the signal by itself. It should have one or more input RCA jacks in the back for various external devices like VCRs, CD Players or your TV box, and it should have several output ports that the speaker wires and sub woofer plug in to. You shouldn't have to worry about the signal strength or amplifying it.

Just so long as you use the speakers that were designed for the unit. If you decided to use third party speakers with a higher impedance, then you would need an amp.

Have either of you looked at the quick setup instructions in the manual? It would have basic instructions on setting up a simple home theature, and if an amp is necessary, it would be indicated there.

I have the same problem with my XV-DV333. Search on inet and this came up: "... Pick Out One Of These! But I am unable to select any region using the remote control or the buttons on the player. What do I do? You need to get a Pioneer Service Remote. When you have it you should press: [ESC] [A.MON] [Numbers], where [Numbers] correspond to the region number you want to set. Be aware that you can only set this once, if you set the wrong region number for your area, there is no turning back. " WTF! Am I supposed to get a service remote to get this thing working again. I haven't done anything and it worked before:/

Wow , with the unit sitting for two years, you could have all sorts of problems now. Most likely back when the unit stopped working, the spindle motor was bad, as that was the problem on almost all of these types of CD players. Now though, if the power supply capacitors are not shot, the laser assembly could also be bad. My best advice on this unit? Can it and start out with new equipment. Good Luck

You could have a bad speaker or wire! If it powers up ok try hooking one speaker at a time and when it shuts down you will know what speaker/channel is causing the problem.

There are a few methods manufacturers use to automatically change the direction of play - sometimes a tight cassette will fool the mechanism into thinking the tape has ended and sometimes it is a matter of the internal control linkages being in such close proximity a slight misalignment can cause the pressing of one button to move another...

Did it work before? If so check there is power at the outlet. Check the back of the unit to see if there is a removable fuse?

Are you an electronics engineer? If so the Service manual is here. If not, Google for 'Panasonic Service'.

'No Sound' is a known issue on that unit.

Probably not - Bluetooth is listed as a capability but I think if you read the manual, it will be an alternative source or input rather than an output.

I would check it with another set of speakers.

Could be a dry soldered joint - not unusual in complex electronics but randomly heating lots of joints can cause trouble so it is best to discover the fault first, if possible.
Obtain a service manual and trace the power path with a suitable multimeter.

The code will be in the remote control, if it is compatible.
