Question about KLH R5100 Receiver

1 Answer

Center channel turns scratchy.

After about an hour or so of use, the center speaker turns scratchy. All the other speakers are fine, no matter how long they are used for. I've tried multiple speakers, multiple imputs, and changed the wiring, none or which have fixed the problem.

Sorry to inform you, The driver transistors or IC is going bad, or there might be a poor solder connection on the center channel Amp. If you know how to solder, you may be able to poke around at the center channel amp circuit, with a wooden or plastic tool, and maybe see where the bad connection(s) are. To get a shop to looki at this unit, may not pay, but that is all up to you, on how much you paid for the unit, and how much your willing to pay to get it fixed. Read this great article and see if it helps you to decide. http://www.techlore.com/article/10602/How-to-Determine-if-you-Should-Repair-a-Broken-Device/ Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.

Replace center channel speaker with known good one. If no longer scratchy then the voice coil of removed unit is rubbing against the magnet pole and the speaker needs to be replaced. If the replacement speaker also sounds bad, then the amp for the center channel needs repair.

the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
or you might have to clean the dust from your computer dust causes static which causes your computer to overheat and all sorts of problems
be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your SOUND CARD dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
hope this helps

protection mode engages when there is either a crossed/shorted speaker wire, an incompatible speaker or a blown speaker with fried voice coils.

check your wires for shorts and/or loose strands of wire, your speaker ohmage (should be single coil, 4 ohm) and your speaker's operation. if you push the speaker in about an inch or 2 and there is some resistance, like its sort of scratchy when it moves, then the speakers voice coils are fried. speakers should push in and out freely, with no scratchiness or resistance, until they bottom out at 1 to 2 1/2 inches.

if it is not the speaker or the wiring, then the amp is damaged.

One of my speakers sounds scratchy as well.


This usually points to a torn cone on the speaker itelf or dirt that has somehow gotten into the speaker coil.

if its dirt then a can of compressed air for cleaning computers sometimes does the trick but it does mean opening up the speaker after you disconnect it.

I have similar problem with my Onkyo Tx-SR600. It only happens when it's in surround mode. When switch to Stereo or Direct, the scratchiness go away. Still trying to find a solution to this problem.
