Reviews

SC-HC57 is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Once a great brand, is now in the toilet I bought this player as a Christmas gift for my daughter two years ago. Recently I asked her what would she like this year , she said it would be nice to have working radio since her hasn't worked since before spring. We got just about a single years use , and just beyond warranty. Panasonic used to have a great reputation not any more That's the worst thing about getting older. Things change and you have to constantly vigilant about your trust and loyalty with products

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Electronic I've ever wasted money on This piece lasted only 9 months. It would just die if you had the volume greater than 39 of 50. Then it just stopped turning on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and Versatile Honestly, the preset settings had me disappointed at the sound quality at first, but once I got the setting right I was really happy with the speakers. It's really easy to use, and I like having the timer so that I can play relaxing music to help me fall asleep.

FAQs
  • What do I do in the unit has no power?
    If the unit is not powering on, remove the power cord plug from any power strip it may be connected to and plug directly into the wall outlet.
  • How do I connect a Panasonic home theater system to my TV?
    Panasonic recommends that you use an HDMI cable to connect the HDMI output of your Blu-ray disc player to the HDMI input on your TV. Then place your TV on the correct HDMI input using your TV remote control.
  • What should I do if I am not getting any sound from the center or the right speaker?
    Center Speaker
    Check the speaker wire connection on the back of the unit. Unplug the speaker wire from the back of the unit, and then reinsert it into the center speaker slot on the back of the unit. Next, go to the unit's audio settings and perform a speaker test. If you are using a stereo channel source or the unit has no center channel encoded, turn on the "Super Surround" option.

    Right Speaker
    The right speaker of the center channel is a "Super Tweeter" it along with the full range speaker produce a more natural sound even though you may not hear audio coming from the super tweeter. Super tweeters produce high frequencies which may not be heard at all times.
     
  • How do I use the ARC feature with my home theater system?
    ARC is an abbreviation for Audio Return Channel. To use this feature the HDMI cable you are using must be compliant to HDMI v1.3 spec or later. Older cables may not work correctly.

    VIERA Link can work with either the HDMI- ARC feature of a compatible TV.
    For ARC usage make sure that the systems HDMI ARC port is connected to the TVs ARC port.

    1. Press [HOME].
    2. Select "Others" icon and press [OK].
    3. Select "Setup" and press [OK].
    4. Select "Audio" and press [OK].
    5. Select "TV Audio Input" and press [OK]. Then select the "ARC" option.

    Afterwards the TV's ARC feature will control the home theater system and the sound from the TV will be heard through the systems speakers.
