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.

It can be either problem with the receiver itself, cables or your speakers. You can try different combinations to narrow down the issue.
1) Also the radio does not work?

2) Try to run the Test tone to the speakers (Setup / Speaker setup / Manual setup / Test tone). If you hear the tone, then the issue is configuration problem with your inputs.

3) If possible, try to connect headphones to the receiver. If that works, it can be issue with cables/speakers or their setup.

4) Try to run the Automatic Speaker setup with YPAO microphone. It will eventually fail, but will provide you error code, which you can lookup in the manual for different reasons.

5) Try disconnecting all the cables and reconnecting them again, possible trying left speaker with right cable and right speaker with left cable.

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).

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.

Sharp sd nx10_out signal trouble


Try all of the spaekers on the channel you know works. If all are fine, swap the speaker lines to test them. Is the input a DVD player on RCA cables? A bad signal cable from a component can be a source for problem. Connect the speakers directly to the amp(if possible) bypassing the sub box. If all works without the box, suspect bad crossover or in the self-powered boxes a bad amp.
