Question about Yamaha RX-V550 Receiver

Not getting sound from right speaker

I am only getting sound from both my left and right front speakers in the fm tuning mode (radio listening). When I switch to tv (dts mode) the right speaker goes silent. I can switch back to the fm mode and the speaker comes back on. I have done the speaker test and get sound from both front speakers. I am using the 2-channel stereo mode for everything as I have two fronts and a subwoofer. Any thoughts on this problem?

Re: Not getting sound from right speaker

How do you have the audio hooked up from the TV set? If its s video or RCA plugs? If it is switch them around and see if it swaps channels that goes out . If it does then the output cable or the jack is bad. If your using an HDMI ir a scart cable. The cable or connections could be bad. Unplug it and reinsert it or while the units on mover it around and see if the audio comes back on.

I have an ONKYO TX-SR606 receiver and I am trying to listen to FM radio using more than just the center channels. I have gone through the setup screens for the tuner and only Analog choices are available....

In reality the correct way to listen to radio or any music source for that matter is in 2 channel stereo. What this means is that the front left and right will play and also the subwoofer. If you absolutely want all your speakers to play while listening to fm, than press the Multi channel button and set it to direct, or any other sound field that you may desire.
Good Luck

When listening to the fm tuner on my yamaha htr 6060, will all 7 speakers still make sound? i' having trouble getting sound from the other speaker connections other than the L and R front connection.

analog fm is broadcast in stereo you would need to use a simulated surround setting to have sound come out of your rear and mid surround speakers.
your manual says the default setting for fm broadcast is:
7ch Enhancer
Select this SCENE template when you enjoy FM or AM
radio programs.
make sure you unit is not in straight mode try pushing the straight button on the front of the receiver let us know if more troubleshooting is needed.

I have a Harman/Kardon AVR 325. Left speaker not working with TV

How is TV audio (from the cable box) getting into the Receiver? If digitally, you wouldn't be missing any one channel on a connection malfunction, you'd lose them all. If analog, swap the channels around to isolate the problem (and reconsider using digital).

Cannot get all speakers to work at once!!

It could be that every sound has its recording style, some record the sound to just left or right only(mono left or mono right) some has stereo, recorded on left and right. Some have induced additional sound that only surround sound is best at.

Or some base on signal strength, some cut or boost only to the level it is set to appear.

Can't get clear sound when not in "bypass" mode on Denon Pro Logi

From the FM radio mode, from your remote press the speaker button to make sure just the front speakers are on, make sure surround is off and use the tone cotrol button on the right side of the amp to adjust the bass and treble. That should clear things up a bit

STG DR510 no sound on left front channel

Can I assume the calibration procedure also didn't work for the Front left channel? (It's not a "surround" if it's in the front). Switch the receiver to Stereo mode to eliminate any DSP actions. Tune an FM station to eliminate any external device or cable issues. What do you hear from the two Front speakers?

OK? Select a DSP surround mode. Check all modes. What happens?

If the channel goes dead using some or all DSP modes there's probably something wrong with the processor. If they all work...

Isolate the source that exhibits the problem.

It was a bad left channel cable somewhere, wasn't it?

No sound back two speakers

After using the method of last resort (RTFM) I discovered that Yamaha 7.1 amps assign an order of priority to the speakers. The surround speakers have higher priority than the surround-back speakers. I had connected the rear speakers (in a 5.1 configuration) to the surround-back speaker terminals and since nothing was connected to the surround terminals the E-6 error happed on auto-setup.

I eventually fixed this by connecting the rear speakers to the Surround L/R terminals and then, via the manual setup menu, set rear surround = NONE. This causes the amp to route the rear-surround signals to the Surround L/R terminals. The auto-configure then completed successfully.
