Question about Yamaha Audio Players & Recorders

Center channel quit woring

I've had a Yamaha DVR-300 home theatre system for about a year now. A week ago the center speaker quit working.DVD's sound great until someone speaks and you can't hear any dialog.The speaker itself is fine.I connected it to a surround wire to check it. I've checked connections coming out of the powered sub and all seems in order.What's going on. Buying a new system is not really an option because this was all installed in new construction with very fine tolerances in built in speaker alcoves...Thanks for any help.

The center channel amplifier in the main unit isn't working. Check the warranty. If it's still in force Yamaha will fix it free. If out of warranty, they'll give you an estimate.

SOURCE: AV-DV75 center speaker works surround speakers do not

If all others had been fine before this problem arose, and you are sure that you haven't changed anything in your amplifier's channel selection menus, the problem might be deeper to solve! Try these out; 1-If the amplifier has a test menu to check out all channels plugged in, activate it. You must be able to get sound, which is like rustle, from each speaker. 2- Check your plugs, cables etc. be sure that there isn't any short circuit 3- Grab your amplifier's remote control and find the "channel selection menu" that allows you to increase and decrease volume levels for each speaker independently.

Do you have the "Phantom" option set on your receiver? That will give you these symptoms on Dolby Prologic...accordianman

SOURCE: center speaker channel

This sounds like a bad connection inside the receiver. A 5 minute fix with a soldering iron and about 30 minutes to get to it.
If you can solder you should be able to fix this yourself.

No sound out of right main when watching DVR/TV or VHS


When watching TV or VHS the sound should be stereo and therefor come out of the the 2 front speakers. I suspect you now have sound out of the left front and the center speaker which indicates you connected the center speaker to the right front speakerterminal and the right front to the center terminal.

Just check if all speakers are connected to the correspondent speakerterminal.

If this is correct and the problem persists, try to connect another speaker to the right front terminal to see of the terminal or speaker is not working properly. If another speaker does work on the same connection, your right speaker might be damaged which might not be heard when listening to 5.1 because of the surround sound.

Help installing Yamaha home theatre system.


This is probably a setting problem on your remote-the unit will ony give full surround sound on Movies like dvd-on TV you may not get all speakers going as the cable does not provide signals to drive all speakers-check your manual and change to the appropriate setting-pro-logic is bad for this-will not give sound to all speakers unless the signal tells it to.

Home theatre but TV without audio outlet


I would suggest that you smash
Philips HTS w/a hammer!
I had better sound from TV alone! Only 2 speakers put out sound from TV. Recordings from DVR can not be heard very well w/all volumes at max. System sucks! You get what you pay for! $2500 LCD TV sounds worse w/Philips HTS than my son's $300 TV! ALL cables hooked up as instucted!!!!
