Center, surround speakers not working. "Can't Use" message for DSP.
We can't seem to get the center and surround-sound speakers on our Aiwa AV-D50 working. All the speaker types are right, and we have everything hooked up correctly into the back of the unit, and the back of the speakers, checked and double-checked. (position, pos/neg, all that.) The left and right speakers, as well as the subwoofer, are working just fine.
Another problem, perhaps related, perhaps not, are our DSP buttons. For some reason, we get a "Can't Use" message, no matter which setting we press. Dolby Surround, Live, Arena, etc. It was working fine before we moved to a new apartment and set everything up again, but we can't find out what we've changed that might cause that error, or how we can fix it. Can you help? Any assistance is appreciated.

Re: Center, surround speakers not working. "Can't Use"...
Sounds like the old stuck button thing after a move??? What i mean it go over all the push buttons and maybe you will find one that is not pushing in and returning??? If alls ok then you should check the obvious like bent shafts or balance controls ect. ay have jogged something inside and you will need to see a pro to assit you unless you know how to trouble shoot solid state electronics?? These units have no real serviceable parts inside. Check with your owners manual for the sevicer nearest you. If they are not listed call the service # or try 1-800-289-AIWA . good luck

firstly Jessica you will need either a cd or some form of media that is recorded in surround sound then make sure all wiring is in it's right sockets then while your "cd" is playing configure the amplifier. I hope this will be of some help goodluck.
If by white noise do you mean the test tone generated by the receiver? If so, this is actually pink noise and it is internally generated by the receiver. I would make sure either in the menu or on the remote that you haven't accidently turned off the surrounds and double check the wiring to the surrounds. Good luck.
If you have checked the speaker and wiring. Check the setup, the center channel could be off or it's not in a surround mode.
When playing a DVD through the receiver are the voices heard clearly in the front speakers? if so the center channel is turned off.
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.
