Question about Yamaha RX-496 Receiver

1 Answer

Speaker b has no sound

The B side speakers don't work. Side A is fine though. I don't think that is the speakers because I tried switching them and they both worked on side A. Could it be a fuse in the receiver? Any help you have would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Now when you say side A and side B are you refuring to left and right?? Speakers A or B Are a differant set of speakers like front and rear. if you mean right side works and the left side dosent then yes it could be a fuse if the units old enough. Make sure you check the balance control to see if its in the middle or turned all the way to one side. you would be surprosed how many times Ive seen this problem. if you unplug the unit and look around and see any fuses take them out one at a time and see if they are blown as you would see the little filiment inside burnt or broken. Replace Only with the same type And rating. If you turn on the unit and the fuse pops again or theres no differance then its time to take the unit in to a repair shop unless you know how to troubleshoot solid state electronics. The only user serviceable parts inside of this unit would be the fuses. If there are no fuses popped then its also time to take the unit to the servicer. Good Luck

42.1i passenger side rear has power but sound is very quiet and tinny. all 3 other speakers work fine.

It sounds like the woofer part of the speaker is bad, while the tweeter is still good. You are going to have to replace the speaker. Speakers are generally sold in pairs, so it would be best to replace both rear speakers at the same time.

I don't know which port in the back of the Pavilion to connect the black wire from the speakers (that connect to the right speaker with red and white ends). Any ideas? They are labeled as side, rear...

To get "surround" sound, when you face the computer, you will have:
* 2 front speakers, one immediately on each side of the computer
* 2 side speakers, one on each side of your head
* 2 rear speakers, one behind each side of your head

Thus, when the sound is of a jet-plane coming towards your face,
you'll first hear the sound in the front speakers,
then in the side speakers,
and finally in the rear speakers,
to produce a sound-effect of the jet passing over your head, and going "behind" you.

Usually, for "front" speakers, one speaker connects to the other speaker, and the second speaker connects to the "FRONT-audio-output" connector on your sound-card.

For side speakers, one speaker will connect to the LEFT-side-audio-output port,
and one speaker will connect to the RIGHT-side-audio-output port.

For rear speakers, one speaker will connect to the LEFT-rear-audio-output port,
and one speaker will connect to the RIGHT-rear-audio-output port.
