Marantz SR5200 - front speakers not working unless direct

My Marantz SR5200 has decided not to put signal through the front speakers unless the signal path is switched to direct. In any other mode, including 6 channel stereo or DTS, I only get a signal in the centre speaker, sub and 2 rears. I've tried the test tones and same applies... nothing in front L & R. Even the on board tuner only does the same, so its definetly internal. Is there any way to do a complete reset of the SR5200 or does it need to go to a techy for a service?

If you try and unplug it at least 12 to 24 hours and it does the same thing, then its time to take it in to the shop.

Re: Marantz SR5200 - front speakers not working unless...

Hello, I have a SR5200 and am experiencing a very similar problem. Usually the system works fine, but every so often the front channels cut out and in stereo mode all I hear is base from the subwoofer. Sometimes the front channels return if I power the unit off and on - but sometimes they'll only return for a few minutes before cutting out again - sometimes they don't return. Sometimes the front channels cut out for a few seconds then come back themselves! Strange... Has anyone had this problem repaired? Any ideas what it could be? Thanks, Danny Blair

Receiver Sr5200 shut down in 5.1 mode

chances are you have the volume too loud and the speaker wires are crossed.
all speaker wires need to be with the positive on the right and negative on the left if you have them anywhichway than it will work on low volume and not a very good sound.
look closely at the wires and they should have a red or so color on one side or the wire jacket itself will have a round side and a flat side

No sound out of speakers (Marantz SR5200 receiver)

sounds like you might need to open it up and check the speaker wires that you plug your speakers up to it might be lose or something else like that cause it happened to me before and that was it.

Marantz SR5200 receiver works only with remote not manually

Check for a stuck/jammed switch, press each switch if one doesn't make a normal click sound or it doesn't move at all that's your problem.
If that's not it check the owners manual for how to reset the receiver (not all manuals will tell you how to reset it) Another way to reset it is to short the memory cap, but that is better left to a tech.

I have the following hardware: Marantz SR-4003 Receiver, Samsung LN52A650 HD TV, Samsung BDP-1500 Blu-Ray player, Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300HD cable box, two Paradigm Millenia 20 LCR Bookshelf...

Remove the HDMI cable (out) to the speakers from the receiver.
Connect regular speaker wire from the receiver to the speakers.
Of course, remove the (now extra) HDMI cable from the tv.
That will remove the loop.
