1. Try running the auto setup without the sub. ( is it a powered sub {the sub has its own amp on the back} or is a NON powered sub that is driven off the speaker jacks of the Yamaha receiver. )

If the sub is powered, and connected to the Amp via the RCA cable from the " sub out " jack, chances are you either have a defective sub or a gound loop.


Good luck...Rob

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Static noise from Front Left Speaker

It would probably be with the speaker. That is easily checked by simply unhooking the speaker and running the test again.

Front speakers won't work simultaneously with the rest of my 5.1 system


This is an either-or situation. As your manual explains, SP-A is one set of speakers and SP-B is another separate set. Your Yamaha receiver should have an SP-A + SP-B setting but given the way your speakers are currently configured it's anybody's guess as to what the result will be.

Auto MCACC Screen Appearing


It would appear the unit thinks your McAAC microphone is inserted. Is it?

Automatically setting up for surround

sound (Auto MCACC)

The Auto MCACC Setup measures the acoustic characteristics of your listening area, taking into account

ambient noise, speaker size and distance, and tests for both channel delay and channel level. After you have set

up the microphone provided with your system, the receiver uses the information from a series of test tones

to optimize the speaker settings and equalization for your particular room.

Make sure you do this before moving on to Playing a source on page 11.

Important

• Make sure the microphone and speakers are not moved during the Auto MCACC Setup.

• Using the Auto MCACC Setup will overwrite any existing settings for the MCACC preset you select.

• Before using the Auto MCACC Setup, the headphones should be disconnected and the iPod

USB, XM or SIRIUS Radio function should not be selected as an input source.

1 Switch on the receiver and your TV.

2 Connect the microphone to the MCACC SETUP MIC

jack on the front panel.

Place the microphone so that it's about ear level at your normal listening position (use a tripod if possible). Make

sure there are no obstacles between the speakers and the microphone.

The Auto MCACC display appears once the microphone is connected.1

Note

1 • You can't use the System Setup menu in either the main or sub zone when the iPod USB, XM or SIRIUS Radio input source is selected. When you set ZONE 2 to ON (page 61), you can't use the System Setup menu.
• If you cancel the Auto MCACC Setup, or leave an error message

etc.

It's all in the manual.

Some background on the process...

Rx-v1800 with check sp wires problem,narrowed it down to the center channell speaker which is 8ohms the rest of the speakers are 4ohms center speaker checks out fine on other receivers,could the ohm...


So are you saying the error goes away when you disconnect the center speaker and its cables? Sounds like you have one more step to isolate the exact external component: try a different speaker as the center and/or try a different speaker cable.

Did you set the speaker impedance (Page 33 and 117) to 6-ohm min. AND - the manual does actually say "the impedance of each speaker must be 6-ohms or higher" for all BUT the Front speakers.

On my Canon MX310, the display says "Waiting for Report". Fax Memory is clear, but the In Use/Memory light stays on.


Try this step ... found it on Canon's website

Issue: ERROR LCD: WAITING FOR REPORT
Solution: Set [AUTO PRINT RX] to ON (MX300 / MX310)

AUTO PRINT RX When [AUTO PRINT RX] is set to [OFF], incoming received faxes will be temporarily stored to memory and transaction reports (TX, RX and Activity) remain in memory. The default setting is [ON], which means incoming received faxes and transaction reports will automatically print. The fax machine will not automatically print a received fax and will store it in memory in the following conditions.
  • Ink is low or has run out
  • The paper size and type is not set correctly
  • Paper has run out
  • The Output Tray is closed
To set AUTO PRINT to ON, please follow these steps.
  1. Press the <FAX> button to enter the Fax menu.

  2. Press the <Menu> button. [FAX SETTINGS] is displayed

  3. Press the left or right arrow button to select [RX SETTINGS] , then press <OK> two times.

  4. Press the left arrow to select [ON], then press <OK>.

    Note: When AUTO PRINT RX is set ON, a sub-menu will appear to PRINT WHEN NO INK.

  5. At sub-menu PRINT WHEN NO INK, decide if you'd like the machine to continue to print incoming received faxes if ink is low.

    CAUTION: When this option is set ON, the fax machine will not monitor the ink level of the ink cartridges. If ink is low or out, received faxes will print with streaks or blank. Furthermore, once the fax is printed, it will be deleted from memory.
    1. To print received faxes when ink is low or out, press the left or right arrow to select [ON] and then press <OK>.
    2. To store received faxes in memory when ink is low or out, press the left or right arrow to select [OFF] and then press <OK>.

  6. Press the <Stop/Reset> repeatedly to return to Fax standby mode.

When I use the AUTO setting picture tends to be out of focus no matter how much care I take - on other settings is usually spot on. Shouldn't AUTO cancel all previous settings? J


Other settings can affect how it is set.
Go to the menus and find the setting for default factory settings or something like that. Set all to default.
Then test.

RX-V1600 when i turn on no sound or channels display on


If you are sure that the speaker wiring is correct and connections are good, then:
  • Check the input and output connections are correct for each source.
  • Check that the input mode is not set to DTS or Analog - rotate the input selector to the source and the press the input mode, set it to Auto.
  • Also check that the front speakers to be used are selected A or B (or A+B).
  • If there is an optimiser microphone supplied with this receiver, ensure that it is not still plugged in.
Hope one of these solutions work for you.

Microphone volume goes down automatically


Go to control panel and select the sound option

There you will find microphone settings that are enabled, one of them is set to on and adjusts volume automatically as the noise increases, jsut disable that option

Receiver is shutting down.....


First, I have to compliment you on a thorough and comprehensive problem description and an apparent sense of how to troubleshoot. We're halfway there already.

Your Blu-Ray / PS 3 statement is intriguing but with the E-1 code that absolves it as the problem.

You have two opposing symptoms: the live failure says you have a short while the test mode implies an open circuit. We have to isolate everything and see if it moves to another channel.

Let's run with the "E-1: NO FRONT SP" error. I think it's trying to tell us we have an intermittent sensation of an open wire in one of the Front speaker channels. * Unfortunately, the manual doesn't break out Left and Right (but I'm sure the receiver knows) to help us isolate. You say it doesn't get past the Left test. I need you to decide by listening to the Left Front Speaker setup routine if it's really working or not, and if it seems to be working, maybe the receiver is really failing at the point it advances to the Right Speaker, assuming Right follows left in the sequence.

Verify for me: You swapped the two front speakers Left to Right and replaced both speaker wires with NEW wires and had no improvement.

I'm wary of a failcode that doesn't identify which of a pair is failing, so I 'd like to see ALL NEW speaker hardware and connections in place to avoid the pitfall of swapping the L & R with each other and having one of them be the problem without changing the symptom.

We can accomplish this easily: Try temporarily running the rear speakers as the Fronts just to see if the test can pass. If so, test the Fronts as if they're the Rears speakers. You should be able to just swing the receiver-ends of the cables among the speaker posts.

Something should change or else the problem is internal to the receiver. Good luck.
