Only left speaker works - Self test works fine

When I run the setup, all the speakers work fine. When I try and play a CD or DVD (separate devices) only the left channel works.

    Thanks for the recommendation. Since the speakers all work in test mode, I was fairly confident that the problem was internal to the amp. My next step was to swap out the amp with an older one and when I did that the speakers worked fine. The problem is definitely internal to the amp. Now I have to figure out if it is something I did or if the amp is defective. I am leaning toward the amp being defective. The issue is it worth the cost of repairing or should I put the money toward an HDMI capable amp. Guess I'll check the warranty coverage first. Thanks again.

    I have exactly the same problem, apart from for me, only the right speaker works.



    I have narrowed the problem down a little further, it only occurs for sources connected by RCA phono sockets. When I use my DVD player or Playstation connected via Optical cables, both channels work fine, but my Sky box is connected by phono cables, and I only get the right speaker.



    I have a workaround where I watch the Sky box through the DVD recorder, but it is a hassle, would be great to get it fixed!!

Some of my speakers arn't playing sound on my HT-E555OW


If you are trying to play a cd, you must manually tell the unit to play it in surround sound. Cd audio defaults to stereo only. Does it do the same thing if you are playing a dvd? If it happens on dvd's as well, then something in the speaker setup menu is wrong.

Onkyo HT S3300 center, left front and rear speaker not working.


check your speaker wiring, make sure both terminals are connected properly. or could just be left speaker is disconnected. and is set in stereo mode which will only play left and right front and Sub, if you have one. try chaning the surround mode to play in multi channel speaker which will send sound to all speakers. i trust your using a Digital audio cable from your source ( cable box, DVD player) if your using analog audio cable you will only get stereo sound, and nothing will ever come out of the rear speaker unless you change the surround mode to multi- channel speaker. also in the setup menu you should be able to perform a speaker setup, make sure all your speakers are able to produce sound. follow speaker setup mode in menu, make sure you have checked the boxes or Yes to speaker you have in your system. then perform calibration and a test tone will come out of each speaker as you select them.

Sound is great unless I'm playing a DVD. When I'm playing a DVD, the music and sound effects are fine, but I have difficulty hearing and understanding the dialog. Any suggestions?


Check your setup for the center channel level, or to see if the center channel speaker is working at all.

Also check the setup in your DVD player to make sure its speaker setup matches what you have.

LD4088 LCD will not play sound via HDMI cables. Component cables are fine. Hear a faint "click" from speaker when switching to HDMI input. Have tried all three HDMI connectors and have tried...


This is how AUDIO works in HDMI setup, you can select the source to send the digital audio along with the digital video through HDMI, the receiving end HDMI sound setup must be set to receive the digital audio through HDMI. Otherwise the audio may be sent and received through analog audio ports (Red (Right channel) and White (Left channel) RCA jacks) in stead. Most of the new TV and DVD player use auto detection.
So please check the HDMI audio setup to see how the audio signals are set to be processed.

Please leave rating if it helps.

Yamaha RX-V365 Receiver when I hook up my center channel it is not audible at all. The R and L speakers work fine when they were located in the FRONT A and FRONT B terminals, but when I moved everything to...


With what signal did you try? Maybe your signal source (DVD/TV or radio) didn't contain any sounds for the center channel.
Go to the Setup menu, Speaker setup / Manual setup and find there item called "Test tone". It will output a test tone to each speaker individually (you will see on LCD which speaker is being tested at each moment). If you will hear a sound from the center now, there is no issue and center is working fine, just your source didn't contain any sound for the center.

If it doesn't work, then either you have faulty cable, faulty speaker or faulty center output of the receiver.
- Try connecting the center speaker to different output of receiver (this will test if speaker is OK).
- Try connecting working LEFT speaker to left output with CENTER cable (this will test if cable is OK).
- Try connecting working LEFT speaker with working cable to the CENTER output (this will test the output of receiver if OK - but use the Test Tone from Setup).

Hi, Ive tried to set up my samsung blue ray


It seems as though the HT works fine, so to get the TV itself to play through the HT setup, take the audio out from the TV and hook it up to a separate channel on the HT receiver. Turn on TV and receiver and put the receiver on the respective channel of the receiver. I hope this helps.

7.1 speaker setup: no sound coming from right front/surr speakers


Solution to having no sound coming from certain speakers in a 7.1 speaker setup for TX-SR606 receiver when playing a DVD.

Review the cable setup for the DVD player since it was identified as the source of the problem. Best to unplug and plug in the cables to ensure they contact the back of the receiver's RCA jacks. Redo the microphone setup for Audyssey 2EQ calibration. A good chance that it is the cable that may have caused the malfunction and loss of sound from the speakers. The cables can come loose during setup and not plugged all the way to the back of the RCA jacks or a defective cable causing signal loss.

Reciever only allows 2 channels(speakers) at a time.


If the amplifier is not receiving a surround sound signal, you will get nothing from the rear speakers and probably nothing from the front centre. Play a dvd in dolby surround and it will work.

Denon AVr hookup advice


Hi khanfaisalv

You can use Zone2 feature that is built into this amp, then have dvd playing in one room, and cd playing in another. Both controlled separately

Page 10 of the manual tells you how to hook up the wires to Zone2

Page 30 has details of how to get it up and going.

Good luck with the rewire job, thanks for using FixYa
