    Smiler problem,however I have a buzz (low and in the background) on all media,volume up and buzz stays at the same level,vol off and buzz goes!



    Philips claim they have never heard of it,however many blogs online.



    Philips think it is mains hum and was advised to try another socket and if no joy try an other house.



    I did and no joy,philips advised it would be 200 euros to have a look at it.



    This is where I am at the moment.



    Any suggestions?



    PS the WAC 700 has been as good as gold for the two years I have had it,this problem has just occurred,this is my only problem with this device.

SOURCE: Denon AVR-810 going into PROTECTION mode

It sounds like there is a problem with the differential circuit. The bias I am not sure about, as every unit is different. You should get the service manual to be sure or call Denon and see if they can give you an idea. Good Luck

4. Your volume settings are too low or muted. Increase your volume by pressing the + key located on top of the right satellite. You can also check your volume through the volume control located in the taskbar. To mute and unmute the speakers, press the + and - controls at the same time.

SOURCE: On screen display menu

I scratched my head over this for an hour. The manual says you can access the OSD from the unit, but I see no way to do this. From the remote, you have to select the "AMP" setting at the top of the input list. Then hit the OSD button. Assuming your monitor is set up correctly, this will bring up the On Screen Display. Then hit the "Menu" button also on the remote, and you can make your adjustments. Good luck!

SOURCE: Center Speaker Audio Very Distorted

Love your screen name.

You didn't say what, if anything, preceded the appearance of the problem. There might be a clue.

Can you describe the distortion? Is it excessively bassy? If so, is it happening on all sources?

I'm assuming this is a modern digital receiver that is capable of many soundfield simulations as well as native Dolby Digital, DTS, multi-channel. If so we can use a stereo source and through simulation redirect some of it to the center speaker.

Using one of your receiver's many multi-channel simulation modes, put in a CD or tune an FM station and use it to diagnose the problem during later steps.

If it's only a single source and that source uses individual analog channel RCA cables, swap in another one or temporarily move the Center Channel feed to one of the other channels to see if it's before the receiver (in the source).or inside the receiver.

For multiple sources:

Is your Center speaker defined properly as Large or Small in the receiver's setup menu?The size refers mostly to the bass-handling capacities of all your speakers rather than their physical size. Speakers designated as 'Small' will not be sent much in the way of bass because they can't handle it well. The LFE/subwoofer channel(s) will get all the bass that was intended for them instead.

If you have a Small speaker improperly defined as Large it may be getting bass that it can't handle and that might sound like distortion. Having a Large speaker defiend as Small would result in less bass than expected but otherwise 'clean' sound.

Check the speaker setup in the menu for excessive volume level relative to the others. There is usually a calibration procedure the receiver will use to help you adjust the subjective voume of each speaker using white noise or tones.

Hope this helps.

My center speaker crackles


Try connecting one of your other speakers to the centre channel on the amp to see if it is the speaker or the Reciever. If the speaker does not crackle then chances are the centre speaker is probably blown and will require replacing.

Weird surround sound speaker behavior with Denon 2105 7.1


Sounds interesting.
It may sound silly, but can you check all your speaker cables again and confirm whether they are connected to the right connections. please check all cables as also the severed one and please repair it also.

Now please go to the system-set-up and do an auto setup and set up your speakers. Listen to the test tones and confirm that they are coming out of the correct speaker.

Once these are set, then if still there is mismatch of sounds, then we could further trouble shoot.

No sound coming out of speakers


A quick way to check your speakers is to put the contacts from a 9 volt battery to the positive and negative speaker wires (briefly). You should hear a crackle of some sort if the speakers are functioning. If there is no crackle, speakers are bad / if there is a crackle, your head unit must have a problem.

Well, if the headphones work,then the amp in the rcvr is working.
Make sure speakers are hooked up properly (Spr A, Spr B, etc.)
Be sure speakers are selected properly on the front panel.Look in the owners manual and see if its possible to reset the reciever.If this is an older unit, speaker relay may be dirty or defective or unit is in protection.If unit used to make a click after a few seconds when first turned on and now it doesn't, then the relay is not working.

Noisy channel of receiver


Generally, crackling noises come from anyplace there is a mechancial connection for the sound signal. The volume control, main/remote speaker switch and possibly the headphone jack. That is where the contacts must be cleaned, but it requires dissassembly. Try operating the main/remote speaker switches, and plug/unplug a headphone several times. I am assuming there is still audio behind that crackling. Are you using both main and remote speakers simultaneously?
