Question about Pioneer VSX-C302 5.1 Channels Receiver
Playing 2-channel sound works fine. It's when I turn on surround-sound that the problems starts. After a few minutes of playing most of the channels cuts out. It sounds like the fronts still works but the center and surround-channels doesn't put out any sound att all. I've noticed the small fan on the back of the reciever doesn't run even when the reciever feels hot. I've had the fan out and tried running it and it seems to work (jury rigged a couple of 9v-batteries to try it out).
Any ideas would be appreciated.
connect to same terminals as front speakers, this will also cause reduced volume from front speakers. (as per owners manual)

Be sure the sound source has a center channel output ie. not a 2 channel source only, try the test tone setup for 5 or 6 channel balance, if no sound from the center channel still then it is looking like maybe the center channel is blown.

1. make sure you are sending a 5.1 signal to the receiver (my DVD player was configured to only send stereo even if I picked the 5.1 soundtrack, i had to fix that). Read the manual to see the indicator lights that would light up if you are sending a DTS signal or Dolby Digital.
2. Use the 'surround modes' to at least get pseudo surround
