AV-DV75 center speaker works surround speakers do not

My AV-DV75 unit seems to be working fine. The center speaker has sound but the others do not. I have lost my owners manual and may be missing something as simple as an extra connection. I have tested all of the surround speakers at the center speaker connection and they are all functioning. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: 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.

Sony STR-DH510 Multi-channel AV receiver connected to cambridge soundworks ensemble IV w/ passive subwoofer: no sound from center channel during viewing, or during speaker level test- all other speakers...

The STR directs sound to the center as instructed by its speaker setup. You say the center does not work on calibration. Is it defined?

Prove another speaker does or does not work on the center output. Then we'll know if it's the receiver or the speaker ensemble that has the problem.

Have you checked the manual for this "
There is no sound, or only a very low-level sound is heard from the center/ surround. "?

Only front and center speakers work, not surround.

If by white noise do you mean the test tone generated by the receiver? If so, this is actually pink noise and it is internally generated by the receiver. I would make sure either in the menu or on the remote that you haven't accidently turned off the surrounds and double check the wiring to the surrounds. Good luck.

No sound output from Center and Surround speakers

the only time the center and surround speakers put out sound is when it has a surround sound source such as a dvd etc. and only certain sounds come from them as well.

Speakers stopped working.

More than likely you have blown outputs, as the sound you hear when you touch the leads to the terminals is the DC offset of the power supply being routed through your speakers...accordianman

Broken receiver

I bought my AV-DV75 from Best Buy about 10 years ago and it still works. However it did stop working a while back. I don't know why. I alsmost threw it away. But I unplugged it for a couple of days, then plugged it back up and it came back on. It is still working. Maybe that will work for you.

my center speaker quit working recently. If you decide to sell your AIWA speakers will you please email me?

Center, surround speakers not working. "Can't Use" message for DSP.

Sounds like the old stuck button thing after a move??? What i mean it go over all the push buttons and maybe you will find one that is not pushing in and returning??? If alls ok then you should check the obvious like bent shafts or balance controls ect. ay have jogged something inside and you will need to see a pro to assit you unless you know how to trouble shoot solid state electronics?? These units have no real serviceable parts inside. Check with your owners manual for the sevicer nearest you. If they are not listed call the service # or try 1-800-289-AIWA . good luck
