Re: STG DR510 no sound on left front channel
Can I assume the calibration procedure also didn't work for the Front left channel? (It's not a "surround" if it's in the front). Switch the receiver to Stereo mode to eliminate any DSP actions. Tune an FM station to eliminate any external device or cable issues. What do you hear from the two Front speakers?
OK? Select a DSP surround mode. Check all modes. What happens?
If the channel goes dead using some or all DSP modes there's probably something wrong with the processor. If they all work...
Isolate the source that exhibits the problem.
It was a bad left channel cable somewhere, wasn't it?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

May not be serious,first with good channel playing move all controls and switches on the amp,Dead spots can occur on controls especially if they are rarely used.balance controls,tape monitor switches etc so work them all.If fault doesn't clear try headphones,switched sockets can cause problems.next swap input signal leads,left to right. and if still no good try swapping over speakers left to right.STILL no sound? its the amp.Time for tools and a test meter.You can look for blown fuses but its never a good idea to replace a blown fuse without testing the circuit first.may cause further damage and put up the repair cost
I've tried using the balance for left and right speakers, and when the receiver is acting up with the right speaker having a low volume, I tried moving the balance all the way over to the right speaker. The right speaker volume will not increase in volume but the left speaker will decrease in volume.
Just to clarify, the center and the rear speakers are balanced. The issue only happens sometimes when I first power on the receiver I will have no center channel. If I leave everything alone for a few mins, the center channel will come on.
So it seems to me that something one the receiver is going. The question is, can anyone suggest a physical repair for the receiver for these symptoms?
Try swapping the connectors for front-left and front-right (just swap right at the back of the amp)
After the swap, does the front-left speaker work, and now the front-right is dead? If so, then it's a problem in the amp. If not, then the problem is in the wiring and/or the front-left speaker itself.
Post back here with your findings, and we'll troubleshoot whichever part of the system is broken.
I had the same problem. Set the reciever on 6 channel stereo. On this setting, you should be getting the same sound out of each speaker. Isolate which speakers aren't getting sound. Now, on your speaker switch (the A/B button), select A. If that doesn't fix it, select B. If that doesn't fix it, try A and B (if you can on your reciever).
Now, when you switch back to pro-logic, make sure your a/b channel switch is in the position that worked in 6 channel stereo. Yamaha recievers have a memory, and when you switch various modes, it makes auto adjustments based on what you had set in the past.
Hi, since the speakers themselves are ok, try checking the BABY PHONE PLUG that goes to the music/sound source. It is normally three (3) in 1 stud. The metal topmost would go to one channel, followed by a blak plastic ring then another metal band which goes to the other channel, followed by another black plastic ring and the final metal part which is the ground. With power on to the Z-5300, try touching the ends of the baby phone plug. Touching the top and 2nd metal part should produce a sound on either of the left or right. No sound (but spkrs good) it is possible that the left channel (front and rear) of the amplifier is dead. Hope this helps.Regrads.
