Question about Pioneer VSX-C300 Receiver
Hello, I have a Pioneer home theater system with VSX C300 receiver. A week ago, loud static and other crackling noises started coming out of the center speaker. The receiver would automatically turn off sometimes when a loud sound comes, and may turn back on again by itself. This happens whether you are listening to the radio on the receiver, or playing satellite TV sound, or playing a DVD. Now the center speaker only loud static, no meaningful sound. If I plug in any other speaker with any other wire in the center channel slot, the same static comes out of that speaker too. The center speaker works fine on other channels. So it is not the speaker itself or the speaker wire. Anything I can do? I plugged in a multimeter in the center wire slots to see if there is a short circuit, but it is not showing any short circuit. Any hope? Everything else is working fine so you hate to throw away the whole system. Thanks!
Try put a ground line from any metal of your stuff to the any metal direct to the ground. these eliminate noise of the speaker.

Be sure the sound source has a center channel output ie. not a 2 channel source only, try the test tone setup for 5 or 6 channel balance, if no sound from the center channel still then it is looking like maybe the center channel is blown.

Make sure that the sound field/programme you have selected is dolby digital not stereo.(On the amp)
You also need to check on the display that is says DIGITAL not ANOLOUGE, as only a digital input, Optical fibre cable, HDMI, COAX will be a digital signal.
If you are using red and white rca connectors, it is not going to work, as this is an Anolouge signal.

I would recommend checking your speakers polarity ( + on the + - on the - ). Also check to make sure the wires are not touching each other where they connect to the speaker or amp. Also check your input connections if you are not using HDMI or Optical. Worst case is you have to send it in to get serviced. Hope this helps
