Two of the speakers are wireless. Time to get the product manual on pairing and use.
The SC-PT660 Home Theater comes with six speakers, but there are only four terminals at the back of the DVD player. I have no idea how to connect the two surround speakers.
I have owned and used this home theatre for several years, and I have no idea if this is how it has always been. About a year ago, it stopped playing DVD's, and I took it to a technician to have it repaired. When I got it back, I tried connecting the speakers and noticed the missing terminals and left the two surround speakers disconnected. I continued to use the home theatre and forgot all about the missing terminals.
I only happened to notice them again recently, and I pulled out the SC-PT660 manual, which shows six terminals in the drawings, but notes, "No surround terminals in model bundled with wireless option." I don't know if there was some wireless accessory packaged with my home theatre that I subsequently lost, but all the speakers have wires connected to them.
Obviously, the theatre is out of warranty. Panasonic referred me to their local support center, but the technician appeared to be stumped on the phone. I will have to pay if they send a technician to my home.
I don't know if the technician I took the DVD player to gave me back the right one. I doubt that he would entertain the idea more than a year later, but is there some way to check if I never wrote down any serials? I also don't know if these speakers were ever connected prior to the repair. I feel like the missing terminals would be a big thing for me to overlook when I first set it up, but it is not impossible.
Can anybody help me figure this out? I appreciate your help.
This is a HTIB so everything needed is in the box. The only cables on the wireless speakers should be for power.
http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/SCPT660.PDF shows SIX speaker connections and given the story I'm beginning to wonder about the model number.
I purchased from a store, but it looks exactly like in the video in your link --> http://www.cnet.com/products/panasonic-sc-pt660/
So, either I lost the bundled wireless accessory (less likely since the speakers appear to be wired), or I was given the wrong model when I picked it up from the technician (more likely since I should have noticed the missing terminals on first set-up).
I bought this over six years ago.
Maybe it did come with the optional wireless accessory and only four speaker terminals. It is unlikely that they would sell me six speakers with only four terminals and no way to connect the other two speakers. I just feel like I would have noticed something like that on first setup, but I can be absent-minded at times.
Thank you for responding!
I will look for the model number at the back of the unit this evening when I get home. As far as I know, I paid for the SC-PT660 (that is the model number on the manual), and the speakers look wired to me (but the manual says the surround speakers can be made wireless with the optional wireless accessory). The wireless accessory, SH-FX85, has been discontinued, and, unfortunately, it was not cheap.
