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!

Re: speaker b has no sound

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

And you don't think the speakers are wired wrong. Re-investigate or reposition the speakers you THINK are Front to the Rear and go on from there.

The left side sound is intermittent

Sounds like dirt in the volume control or a high resistance speaker wire.
Try switching the right and left speaker wires and see if the problem changes.

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.

Right side speaker barely works

Likely the control is old and dirty.  It is known as a rheostat on older units and often a little contact cleaner on it will work.  A simple thing to try that might work is to rotate the knob back and forth, left to right, each time going to full stop.  do this several, several times.  See if this makes things better.  Of course, the assumption I am making is that the right speaker is operating normally.  If you switch out the left speaker for the right, and the problem persists, on the same side, it is the receiver.  If the problem now appears on the left side, it is a speaker issue and not the receiver.  Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Sound not coming from left side surround sound speaker or my right side front speaker

it is highly likely that you're TV is outputting mono sound, hence the left channel only. check your physical connections to the TV and the balance / channel volume on the television as well.
