Question about Eltax AVR-280 5.1 Channels Receiver

Open Question

Right speaker output gone.

I have an Eltax home theatre system and there is no output from the right speaker output. The outputs are fine for the rest of the clip outputs on the back but the right clip speaker output doesn't. One of my friends said a little bit of smoke came out of the vents once and the right speaker output hasn't worked since. Has a fuse blown or something? How can I fix this? I cannot afford to buy a new one.

I agree, NE Speaker is the BEST repair speaker shop in the eastern half of the USA. I have an EV 12" speaker re-built there and its better than it was before it was blown. Great job NE Speaker!!!

Some high end speakers have a fuse to protect the tweeter (treble). Reverse the speakers. Does the problem follow the suspected speaker? If so, the defect is most likely on the crossover inside the speaker.

What do you mean by best place to locate parts?

I was having trouble finding a manual on your sub as will but found a picture of the back and wanted to confirm this is what yours looks like.

If this is what you have then you have a sub for a 2.1 system. Note you can connect it to a system that has more speakers like a 5.1 or 7.1 system but you would just tie it into the front speaker.

As for the normal connection, the speaker wire connections are for the satellite speakers for the front change only. Note you can connect a second pair of speakers to make a 4.1 system. Then you would connect the speaker channel on your receiver to the "Line Input".

If your receiver does not have speaker wire connections on them (most modern ones do not have them) then you can get adapter cables at your local eletronic store. Most of them will go back to an RCA cable.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

By the looks of it, the only output you can use from the tv will be using the 2.5mm jack plug headphone socket, get a cable to convert this into twin phone (red/white) for stereo sound to your amplifier. (they are very cheap £2 or so) The Home theatre system should be able to give you a psuedo surround but you wont get full surround.

Left Speaker not working

if you swap the speakers and the dead one moves,than it is the amp that is missing a channel,in your case,it is the speaker.
if you try the good speaker in both speaker outputs,it should work on both to confirm the dead speaker theory.
there may be a broken wire in the speaker from shipping.

Have an existing ts-1100 home theatre infinity speakers

You cannot use this system with one that does not have a Subwoofer or LFE (Low Frequency Effect) output. Unfortunately, this sub doesn't have a line-level (speaker wire) input. Sorry.

Please help with getting 5.1 sound from my TV!

You must run a Digital Optical cable from your PS3 to your reciever. Then press your function button on your recievers remote until you see SAT/CABLE on your recievers display. Next go to your PS3 settings and go to Sound settings, then Audio Output settings, and select Digital out (OPTICAL) then your done. This is the only way to get true digital sound from your PS3 to your reciever.

Installation Help

This means that you have purchased a three piece home theatre system. Two tweeters and a sub-woofer. Assuming you are using a Stereo player (Tape/CD/DVC)you have to connect the Left Output of the Stereo placer to the Left Input at the back of the Sub-Woofer and the Right output to the Right input of the subwoofer by cables. Then take tweeters and connect them to Right speaker and Left speaker output at the back of the sub-woofer ( note if the speakers are marked L/R, then connect them to the subwoofer output accordingly. In case you are using a 5.1 player, then only connect the front right and front left to the Right and Left input at the back of the subwoofer. You are and you can now start playing your music or movies and and you will get theatre quality sound.
