How to Fix a Durabrand Home Theater Sound System

Updated February 21, 2017

A Durabrand sound system has the ability to integrate your DVD player into a home theatre arrangement, and everything you need is included in one package. In fact, the system will even work with many computers, allowing you to use it as a home theatre PC. In some cases, problems may arise with your Durabrand system, and there are some troubleshooting steps you can take to fix the problem depending on the type of issue you are experiencing.

Check the power cable cord to be sure it is firmly inserted into the back of the unit. If the unit still won’t turn on, continue to the next step.

Unplug the power cable from the wall socket and leave it unplugged for a few minutes.

Plug the power cable back into the electrical socket and try turning on the device.

Replace the batteries in the remote if it is not working, and make sure they are properly inserted by matching the “+” and “-” symbols.

Check that all speaker connections are inserted correctly and securely to the speakers and to the back of the DVD player or other output device.

Choose the correct source on the system, such as “DVD,” when you are testing the sound.

Make sure the “MUTE” button is not pressed, which would cause the sound to be muted.

Adjust the master volume on the remote, as well as the individual volume settings for each speaker, if the speakers seem unbalanced.


If the sound is coming only from the front speakers and the subwoofer, this is normal for a stereo source. You can press the “Surround” button to hear sound from all speakers if you wish.
