Two things I think are happening. It is overheating and it has suffered some sort of damage to a component inside. Try to make sure there is ventilation on all sides. Can you remember a time where you did not have adequate ventilation for this device? If so maybe that is what caused the part inside to fail.

Hope this helps

Thanks for reading!

I can't find a manual but I'll take a stab.

When you say it fades are you being literal? In the digital world things usually change suddenly or stop altogether.

I'd look at the receiver for an indicator that indicates the multichannel nature of your incoming digital audio. Many have little maps or icons showing the number of speakers supported at any given time. That's a function of the incoming data stream and/or whatever the audio source it carries. For example, when loading a DVD I usually see 2.1 indicated on my unit while the low-tech menus and previews are active. Once the multichannel program commences the 5.1 indication lights up.

It almost sounds like the digital bitstream is being corrupted and the receiver shifts down to whatever it can manage to decode from it. Check the cabling that carries the audio. If it's optical instead of copper, I'd check to make sure there are no tight bends or kinks in it anywhere.

Have you looked at the manual? There is no internal source that would produce 7.1 audio other than the test tones. Attach a multichannel source according to ITS manual.

I have this receiver hooked up to a Vizio LED tv and a Vizio Blue Ray using HDMI cables. The surround sound works from the speakers while watching a dvd (HDMI -1 connection) but I have no surround sound...


AV cables don't pass surround sound through, they are pretty much just left and right stereo. You need to turn pro logic on on the reciever to "pretend" to play surround. The better option of course would be to use a digital signal like another HDMI cable or digital optical audio from the cable box, if thats what your using.

How do you make the 6.1 channel work? Right now it just says digital. Does 6. 1 channel sound better?


6.1 stands for six speakers and one sub-woofer - a total of seven actual speakers giving you the surround sound effect. Before it can play a surround sound environment, the media - a CD or DVD must have it encoded on the disc, like a movie that has 6.1 surround sound recorded on it or a music CD with recorded surround sound. Otherwise, it will just play stereo audio - two speakers and the others are redundant. And yes, it does sound better as if you are in the actual area it was produced - like if you were there.

I have an RX-V663 audio sounds flat


Let's deal with the turntable sound first - unless it's a self-preamplified model you would have to get an external phono-specific preamp to use with this receiver. Without one you'll get microscopically weak, tinny sound from the turntable. Google "RIAA curve" to see why.

As far as the CD sound through the Blu Ray player... for one thing it is flat, as in two-dimensional stereo. Compared to genuine surround from a movie it would be a letdown.

Can you better define 'flat'?

You must verify that the settings on your PS3 and the tv allow for Dolby or DTS output. Most tvs are set from the factory for stereo.

Center speaker still not working :(


all your speaker channels are working so your problem lies with a setup fault. when you watch tv you are only feeding a stereo signal into the amp. you need to select the internal surround sound generator. you need to select either the movie or surround function. the unit will convert the stereo signal to 5.1 channel surround.
