Question about Teac AG-V3050 Receiver

Seems to only play in Mono

When listening to the FM tuner it will only play in Mono. If I use the mode button and put it in what I assume is stereo mode, there is no sound, well actually if I turn it ALL THE WAY UP, I can hear a faint trace of the music playing but that's it, if I put it back to mono it plays fine. AT the moment I only have 4 speakers connected. 2 in the front and 2 in the back, both on the A connectors. Why won't it play in stereo? Thanks for any help. Karen

Re: seems to only play in Mono

Karen - Is it only the FM section that is giging you trouble? Does Stereo work for the other inputs - VCR/DVD/Turntable?
Is that stereo button ONLY for the FM section?

Marantz 2220b does not play in stereo in fm mode. i doxed all pots, & knobs, adjusted pot 304 but no dice. fm light is good, lites up on aux settings

Do you have an antenna attached to the receiver? If you don't, it might not be getting a powerful enough signal to pull in stereo. Also make sure that the mono button is not pressed or faulty.

I have an ONKYO TX-SR606 receiver and I am trying to listen to FM radio using more than just the center channels. I have gone through the setup screens for the tuner and only Analog choices are available....

In reality the correct way to listen to radio or any music source for that matter is in 2 channel stereo. What this means is that the front left and right will play and also the subwoofer. If you absolutely want all your speakers to play while listening to fm, than press the Multi channel button and set it to direct, or any other sound field that you may desire.
Good Luck

With the Marantz SR 440/640 receiver, there is a Mono/Stereo push button. What position should the button be in to listen to a stereo broadcast?

I can't find the manual or a good picture of the front panel but I'll chime in anyway.

Are you sure the button applies to FM? It may be for overall stereo vs mono listening.

If it IS for FM choose Stereo. Mono if the station is so weak that it won't tune in stereo. Usually a receiver will have an Auto function that will do it automatically.

How do I preset the tuner for radio stations. I've never had a problem doing this with any other stereo. But what I think should work isn't!

Not very specific. Do you have the manual?

The following is from a VSX-03TXH manual. It ain't pretty but it may help.

I'm posting it in multiple parts due to space contraints.


Chapter 6:

Using the tuner

Listening to the radio

The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and

AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and

manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the

frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a

station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can

memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving

station presets below for more on how to do this.

1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.

2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or

AM), if necessary.

Each press switches the band between FM and AM.

3 Tune to a station.

There are three ways to do this:

Automatic tuning

To search for stations in the currently selected band,

press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The

receiver will start searching for the next station,

stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for

other stations.

Manual tuning

To change the frequency one step at a time, press

TUNE ?©/??.

High speed tuning

Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.

Release the button at the frequency you want.

Improving FM stereo sound

If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when

tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press

the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono

reception mode. This should improve the sound quality

and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.

Using Neural THX

This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to

achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.

• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.

I have a new Onkyo TX-SR508 receiver. When listening to FM radio the audio cuts out repeatedly for anything from a few seconds to a minute. Power fluctuation is very unlikely to be the problem. Signal...

Does the display show "tuned" or "FM Stereo"? This would normally indicate a good reception. The tuner has a signal level threshold and if the signal gets to week, the receiver mutes to prevent noise in the speakers. Swithing to mono make reception less intolerant. Does the problem also occur, when you switch to mono?

Auto muting on when on am/fm and no sounds come out. everything else is fine.

That's normal.

The Auto Muting mode mutes the audio output of the tuner if the station is not sufficciently strong to be accurately tuned. Otherwise you would hear all that interstation hash noise.

Press the FM Mode button to change it to Mono if you want to manually tune a hard-to-reach station. It will be in Mono.

Page 26:

Normally select this.
When a program is broadcast in stereo, you will hear stereo sound; when in monaural, you will hear monaural sound.
This mode is also useful to suppress static noise between stations. The AUTO MUTING indicator lights up on the display.

When listening to the fm tuner on my yamaha htr 6060, will all 7 speakers still make sound? i' having trouble getting sound from the other speaker connections other than the L and R front connection.

analog fm is broadcast in stereo you would need to use a simulated surround setting to have sound come out of your rear and mid surround speakers.
your manual says the default setting for fm broadcast is:
7ch Enhancer
Select this SCENE template when you enjoy FM or AM
radio programs.
make sure you unit is not in straight mode try pushing the straight button on the front of the receiver let us know if more troubleshooting is needed.

LXI tuner not working

Unfortunately without the make and model, there is little that we can do to assist you. There are too many tuner designs to be able to give you any useful information. Please try the unit in mono mode and with any "muting" turned off. If you receive stations with the muting and stereo modes turned off, the problem is with an I.F. amp stage. If you receive nothing, that is informative as well.

Please investigate a bit more and post the make and model and I should be able to assist.

Onkyo receiver playing in mono only

sounds like a reception problem. Is there a visual meter for the reception? Check your antenna.
