Yamaha rx-v361 - Left/Right Speaker stopped working!

Hi,

Today, my one year old Yamaha rx-v361 decided to stop outputting sound through the left and right side speaker. I didn't change any of the settings and none of the wires are loose. I've troubleshooted every possible way. I've even done a factory reset, but to no avail! The only way I can get them to work is to select "Speaker A/B/Off" on the front panel and click on B speaker set. The sound does then come out of the left and right speaker on this setting, but it's not in Stereo. Anyone else had this problem or know of a soloution?

    Same happened to me. It took me ages to set this upso it was working properly in the first place. Today I noticed the two front speakers are not working again. Very frustrating.

Modern home-theater components monitor themselves electronically for potentially dangerous malfunctions such as damaged internal parts. When a unit's microprocessor senses a problem, it will typically shut down so that no further damage -- or potentially dangerous disasters like fire! -- occurs. Your receiver is identifying something upon turn-on and shutting down as a result. My guess is that you're going to need service for your Yamaha. There's likely no fix that you're going to find. You need a professional service technician.

Make sure that you have the correct input signal selected.
Also, check if the sound is not muted.
If you have a multi-room speaker switch, make sure it is set correctly to main speakers.

SOURCE: Speaker output

Yes, there are relay type switches associated with those outputs. Your RX-V1 is not dying.
Just plug a pin plug in and out of the dead channel to bump the switch. You will hear the speaker
come on. If it doesn't come on,do the plug jack in an out of the pre out again. It will come on.
You can use the test tone to check all channels and rebalance volume levels. You are making the
pre out connect to its power amp. It seems the problem got better when activating those switches. Most likely a cleaning issue. You can also jump the mains and center, and there is also
a modification to jump all channels. I bought my RX-V1 very cheap because of this and love it.
Of course outboard power amp would solve all, but getting this reciever to connect to it's own
power amp has been thrilling as far as bang for the buck. I do use the front effects also, and like
them. It may seem like a pain, but it is worth it to get those channels going.

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V361 cuts off: check SP cable

Disconnect the speakers and turn on. If your receiver is ok, it will not go into protection "check spkrs" Then connect speakers, one by one, each time make sure the receiver is off, then turn it on. When you find the speaker that's causing the problem it will go into protection. At this time, disconnect the speaker at the speaker, then turn on again, if it still goes into protection, you have a speaker wire problem. If it stays on, you have a problem with the speaker. If you have a multimeter and know how to read it, check the impedance and the resistance. Check the internal workings of the speaker, bad surround from dryrot or smoked crossovers, etc. look for the obvious first. Hope this helps

I cannot figure out how to get sound through my Yamaha RX-V361 from my LG 37CS56 hdtv


Are you using any kind of Decoder or Set Top box to receive your TV signal?
If so you can connect the RCA OUTPUT from your cable or satellite decoder, to the Yamaha inputs. See the picture I have attached for you.
Then when you want to hear the sound from there, select DTV /CBL input on your remote control of the Yamaha receiver.


Or you can locate the SOUND or AV OUTPUT (Red and white RCA connection) at the back of you TV, and connect the cables from there to your Yamaha receiver.9_9_2012_6_50_32_pm.jpg

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).

RX-V1 (No left main channel sound)


Sounds like the output stage of the amp is bad. Needs service.

Right speaker doesnt have sound


1ST.-The right jack could be damaged!!
Usually, there is a [+} posaitve & [-] negative input\output to speaker connections. Not all [-]neg. is ground.Sometimes the [+] pos. is grounded. [The exception to the rule is that u SEE the black wire going to ground] the reason I am letting u know this is that u can test the INSIDES of the sound system.
If u can get inside of the unit. Cut the left speaker output [+] posative from both outputs. criss\cross wires.Place left speaker output to right speaker jack[ that does not work!!] & visa versa.If the [LEFT Output] stops working after u plug in the speakers,the internal RIGHT output is damaged. NEEDS TO BE TESTED
If nothing nothing changes.The left still works & the right still does not work, then it is the jack (shorted ?, opened internally ?)
