Question about Nakamichi AV-3S Receiver

Open Question

AV-500 I've had the AV-500 for several years, but not until today have I tried to use it in the surround sound mode. All channels work, but is there a way to adjust each speaker individually? Right now the center speaker is way louder than all the rest. With the new, different receiver in another part of the house I can adjust the speakers individually. I can have the left rear, or right front three times louder than the rest if I want. But I can't seem a way to find how to do that on this particular model.

If all others had been fine before this problem arose, and you are sure that you haven't changed anything in your amplifier's channel selection menus, the problem might be deeper to solve! Try these out; 1-If the amplifier has a test menu to check out all channels plugged in, activate it. You must be able to get sound, which is like rustle, from each speaker. 2- Check your plugs, cables etc. be sure that there isn't any short circuit 3- Grab your amplifier's remote control and find the "channel selection menu" that allows you to increase and decrease volume levels for each speaker independently.

SOURCE: Nakamichi AV-7 5.1

in this case the centre speakers are the main route to the sound. 5.1 is for movies, where the centre speaer takes predcedence.

SOURCE: No problems for several years. Yesterday the right

  1. Check for resistance in your Right side speaker. If the speaker died, the Receiver may have shut down the right side outputs.
  2. Test the Right side with a different speaker if you can.
  3. If the tape monitor switch is turned on, turn it off.
  4. In your surround sound settings make sure the levels are set correctly and the distance from your listing point to the furthest.
  5. Check different modes such as Natural, Hall, Stadium, and see if the speakers are working.
  6. Try disconnecting the power, reseating all connections on the back of the Receiver, reconnect all speaker wires, reconnect the power.
  7. Make sure any DVD players, TVs, etc. are plugged in properly, and reseat the connections.
  8. If you are still experiencing trouble, the device will require internal repairs. Contact a stereo repair shop to get a quote for the repairs.

Hi,\

Its an issue with the tone switch activate and reactivate it to get back to normal volume on both speakers, and would suggest you to clean the switch with WD40 and it should resolve the issue

This sounds like a common problem on these TVs (it's happened to both of my AOC TVs a couple times). Try a factory reset:

1. Press and hold "Menu" and "Channel+" on the TV. (do not use the remote)
2. Using the other hand, press the Power button.
3. A small screen should appear in the top left part of the screen.
4. Using the remote, select "Memory Recall" and Enter.
5. Power off and reboot the TV and Computer.
6. Run channel auto-scan to regain the picture.

Surround Sound System Settings ---- Correct Time Delay Setting in Multi-channel Audio

A correctly set surround sound system can yield dramatic improvements to your
home theater sound or multi-channel music listening experience. In particular,
a correctly set time delay setting between the different channels is essential
for a realistic and unified surround soundfield.
Luckily, most of today's surround processors make setting the time delays
between the rear and the fronts a matter of a few entries in the setup menu.
Yet having a proper understanding of the principles behind correct time delay
settings is essential for the best results.
In this guide, we explain the principles behind time delay settings in surround
sound and show you how to adjust your surround processor or AV receiver for the
best surround sound field.

Time Delay Setting in Multi-channel Surround Sound Systems

Correct home theater speaker placement and properly balanced sound levels
between the different channels in multi-channel audio, while crucial, are not
enough to sustain a unified soundfield in a surround sound setup. A correctly
set surround sound system requires that sound from all the different speakers
reach the listener at exactly the same instant.
This explains why all fronts, left, right and center channel speakers, should
be set at exactly the same distance from the listening position. At the same
time, in a typical home theater setup, the surround speakers are closer to the
viewer than the fronts.

To compensate for this distance discrepancy, surround sound playback systems
apply a split-second delay to the surround sound channels.

In dolby digital mode i can not get any voice volume. All other sounds are ok


Assuming that you mean Dolby digital 5.1, confirm that you have a center channel properly connected and perform the following;

Using the remote, enter the menu on the receiver and navigate to the selection labeled "LEVEL." Toggle through the selections until you reach the "CENTER CHANNEL". You will be able to use the remote to increase the volume of that channel in .5dB increments.

5.1 Surround sound not working


Maybe the surround processor is having a bad day... My kenwood would do similar and a reset was necessary to correct. Have you tried resetting the system? On my Sony STR DE 597 this is accomplished by powering off. Then while holding the 2 channel button down (front face plate) power on. A reset message is displayed. Your model may be similar but check your manual or download the PDF of the manual from Sony's support website. Hope this helps
