Re: yamaha dsp a2

It could be that the couplers between pre-out & Main-in are missing
On the back panel, to the left of the Main speaker terminals, there is a set of 10 phone terminals with the label 'Coupler / Output' above.
The 4 terminals below the word 'coupler' should be joined together, left to right (or pre-out to main-in) with a small horseshoe coupler which plugs into the phono sockets, effectively joining them together.
Without these couplers, your front end main speakers would not work as the amp thinks you are using a power amp to run the main speakers and not this amp.

My receiver no longer produces sound to the speakers unless I push the "Pure Direct" button.

verify that the optical cable (or the tv optical output) is not the problem. try using a different audio source with optical output such as a cd player if you have.

Sony STR-DH510 Multi-channel AV receiver connected to cambridge soundworks ensemble IV w/ passive subwoofer: no sound from center channel during viewing, or during speaker level test- all other speakers...

The STR directs sound to the center as instructed by its speaker setup. You say the center does not work on calibration. Is it defined?

Prove another speaker does or does not work on the center output. Then we'll know if it's the receiver or the speaker ensemble that has the problem.

Have you checked the manual for this "
There is no sound, or only a very low-level sound is heard from the center/ surround. "?

Lux Audio 5.1 home theater speaker & Yamaha HTR 5540 AMP

configure ur PC (both OS audio and third party sound driver) for surround sounds. control panel- sounds and audio devices - speaker settings - advanced - speker settings. so this done. make sure u select the 6 input channel - the button is on the right edge near the volume knob. near the vol button there are two buttons for selecting input type with up down arrow. from that u can select the input type this will be indicated on the top front indicator. but with the 6 input channel selected all selections are preceeded. if u select stereo mode u will have left/ right audio only.
make sure u connect the input right. connect from computer to 6 channel input. main, surround, center and sub-woofer.  connect the spekers to main (L/R), rear(surround) (L/R), center and sub woofer to terminal marked sub woofer ouput. this done select like i said before the 6 channel button. that should do it.

Amp turns of after 2 seconds of turning on

It is going into protection mode, and shutting itself off. You have a short somewhere. I would suggest taking it to an authorized service center for assistance. This is not easy to diagnose, as it could be anything causing the short.

Try disconnecting everything from the unit, including the speakers, and turning on again. This will just confirm that the problem is the amp, and nothing external. Also, try connecting it to a different power supply/socket.

Yamaha RX V 657 - No Sound Output, and No input detection

Bad DSP chip. The only other possibility is if you have the "Direct" on. On the front of the receiver it's a small button. Also make sure your "Speaker Select" A/B is "on" You will see it on the display, it's also a small button on the front of the receiver. If all this is correct and you still have no audio, it's a bad DSP chip. Not worth repair, it's 400-500 repair. Not very common in a Yamaha RX-V series, but I have seen it. I'm a Yamaha Dealer. If you need further help, post a comment and I will be glad to help you further.

Yamaha RX-V2700 no sound from any speaker outputs

Make sure that you have the correct input signal selected.
Also, check if the sound is not muted.
If you have a multi-room speaker switch, make sure it is set correctly to main speakers.

Rx-v463, no sound from rear speakers, and hookups

Sounds like an internal software issue dealing with this may have to return it to the manufacture for this repair.

No output from outputs to speakers.

Usually the outputs are not fused, but you can go thur speaker white noise test and see if that works first. If it does, then outputs are probably fine, IF not then the output transistors are most likely bad. Let me know and we can try some other things thur live chat if you would like. Good luck Guru Jay
