Yamaha Receiver Rear-channel Problem

Hello, I am not getting any sound out of the rear channels from my Yamaha HTR-5440. Funny thing is, the headphone light on the display is always on, so I believe the problem is that it always thinks the headphones are plugged in, and it's automatically turning the rear-channels off. Any ideas? Thanks, Matt

    Ok, so I've taken it apart and looked at the headphone circuit. Again, the headphone output is working fine, it's just when I remove the plug the icon on the display doesn't go away.

    I know that when the plug is in, a circuit closes across the plug, but when the plug is removed from the jack, it becomes an open circuit. So it appears that there's nothing physically wrong with the jack itself (no unwanted short circuit).

    If I had to guess I think the problem is not with the headphone jack but rather with the processor that handles the signal that determines whether the headphones are in or not. Any suggestions on how I might diagnoss a problem with a processor to be sure? How do people handle problems with processors in the repair world?

    Thanks!

    So I left it unplugged overnight and most of the day today, but no luck. I also noticed tonight that I can't run the speaker test sequence, but I'm not sure if that's related to the same problem or not. Could this be because of a damaged processor or other replaceable component? Is there any way to do another type of reset that I am unaware of? Thanks!

Surround problem with Yamaha HTR-5930 5.1 Channels Receiver


The signal that comes from most tv's via the optical output is a stereo signal only. That is what your receiver is reading. You would have to manually set your receiver to decode the signal into surround,.

I have my HTR 6030 receiver hooked up with a blu ray and am trying to get true 5.1 sound. Have a blu ray disc playing and have put the setting on "straight" on receiver as instructed by future...


Hi there,

If you only have sound from the front left and right speakers when it's set to STRAIGHT, it means the audio source is only 2 channel stereo. As the audio source is from Blu-Ray, the audio should be HD if you are using the correct type of audio cable.

I really need more information from you to give a definitive answer. If you are only using a RCA type audio cable (red/white plugs) from the Blu-Ray to the Yamaha receiver then you will only get left and right front channels on the STRAIGHT setting. This receiver does not have HDMI, so you really need to be using a digital optical audio cable to get true 5.1.

Please can you let me know how the BD player is connected to the Yamaha receiver if you need further assistance.

Thanks,
BElectric

Lux Audio 5.1 home theater speaker & Yamaha HTR 5540 AMP


configure ur PC (both OS audio and third party sound driver) for surround sounds. control panel- sounds and audio devices - speaker settings - advanced - speker settings. so this done. make sure u select the 6 input channel - the button is on the right edge near the volume knob. near the vol button there are two buttons for selecting input type with up down arrow. from that u can select the input type this will be indicated on the top front indicator. but with the 6 input channel selected all selections are preceeded. if u select stereo mode u will have left/ right audio only.
make sure u connect the input right. connect from computer to 6 channel input. main, surround, center and sub-woofer.  connect the spekers to main (L/R), rear(surround) (L/R), center and sub woofer to terminal marked sub woofer ouput. this done select like i said before the 6 channel button. that should do it.

Microphone for my YAMAHA HTR-5440


Let me make this clear to you that your Yamaha does not support Microphone but the trick is you can still do it. All you need is a stereo jack to a RCA connector cable.Check this out http://www.mediacollege.com/audio/connection/jack-stereo-rca-2.html It is easily available in the market. The stereo jack will fit into your microphone and the RCA to your Amplifier/Reciever. Plug the RCA into CD/Tape input but not in the Phono n do your thing. Let me know if this works,coz I'm really curious.

Left from speaker not working- Yamaha HTR-5940-6.1 channel


Redbird,

What do you have in the "multi channel input" jacks on the rear of the receiver? Those inputs Right, Left, Center, Surround R+L, and Sub are used when selecting 6 channel mode. They bypass the receivers surround processor board.

Yamaha Htr-5560 Av Receiver ,will not turn on makes click-click noise only


had the same problem with a friend's 5560. it was a resistor on the rear center channel board, which is mounted right behind the middle of the heat sink. unhook the two ribbon type cables running to it from the board.

everything will work, except the rear center channel speaker. my friend never used the rear center channel anyway. in the meantime, he bought a new receiver, so i have an extra one for my workout room. woohoo. hope this helps.

Audio won't play on DVD - but it will play for CDs


Hello, you can verify that your receiver is working or not. When you are playing a dvd unplug the audio RCA plugs (red and white) from the back of the Sony dvd player. Touch the tips of each of the RCA plugs with your fingertip. You will hear a buzz sound coming from the speaker associated with the plug if the receiver is working\ i.e. touch the red RCA plug tip and the right speaker will hum...touch the white tip and the left speaker will hum or buzz. This will not hurt your system or speaker. If you do not hear the hum turn the volume to 3 or so and wet your fingertip and tap the tip of the RCA connectors. You will hear "pops" coming from the respected channel. I believe your cd\dvd is at fault. Good Luck!
