Primary speaker output jacks don't work

The alternative left/right and center front speaker outputs work, but, if i connect to the primary jacks, there is no output. As there are no alternative jacks for the rear speakers, I cannot get all five channels for surround sound.
thanks for any suggestions

Here in your manual http://www.fixya.com/support/p235198-kenwood_vr_409_receiver/manual-19163/page-14 on step 8 you need to make sure this is set to normal or large speakers for the surround speakers
here shows how the surround speakers are to be connected http://www.fixya.com/support/p235198-kenwood_vr_409_receiver/manual-19163/page-12
and dolby digital will not work unless the device connected has the coax or optical digital audio connection connected

Kenwood vr606 reciever shutting off subwoofer and centre speaker simultaneously after few minutes/seconds of powering on. WHat's the cause?


The receiver's out put sections are grouped in pairs. Front left and right in one output, rear left and right in second output, and center channel and sub output on the third. Sounds like a semiconductor or semiconductors have gone bad in the center & sub output.

Conncet a sony sub to a denon reciver


Depending on the model, there are two ways to connect a subwoofer to an amplifier, receiver or processor. The best way is to connect the subwoofer to the SUB OUT or LFE output of a receiver, but some subwoofers can be connected to the speaker level outputs of the receiver or amplifier.


1. How to Connect a Subwoofer to the Subwoofer Output


The preferred method of connecting a subwoofer is through the LFE or Subwoofer output (SUB OUT) of a receiver. Almost all home theater receivers (or processors) and some stereo receivers have a subwoofer output. The LFE (Low Frequency Effects) is a special output for subwoofers and is often labeled 'SUBWOOFER' not LFE. 5.1 channel programs on DVD discs have a dedicated .1 channel output with bass-only content that is best reproduced by a subwoofer. Connect the output of the LFE or Subwoofer jack to the Line In jacks of the subwoofer using a single RCA cable (the two jacks on the left in the photo). A 'Y-Cable' may be necessary to connect the LFE output to both the left and right channels of the subwoofer.

2. How to Connect a Subwoofer to Speaker Level Outputs
Some receivers and amplifiers do not have an LFE or Subwoofer output. In this case you can use the speaker outputs of the receiver to connect the subwoofer. Using speaker wire, connect the left and right channel speaker outputs of the receiver to the left and right channel speaker level inputs on the subwoofer (the speaker inputs on the right side of the photo). Using speaker wire, connect the left and right channel speaker outputs on the back of the subwoofer to the left and right channel front speakers.

Hope it helped..

Some DVD's sound fine whilst others have background sounds but no voices. I do have an old model TV that has mono sound.Would that cause it?


" Some DVD\'s sound fine whilst others have background sounds but no voices. I do have an old model TV that has mono sound.Would that cause it? "
Hi,
I wrote a short article for someone who had a similar problem a few days ago.
I will edit it for you so that it fits. Here it is.
Your DVD player should have output connectors in the back of it to plug your amplifier or receiver into. If you have a Stereo system (no surround sound speakers, or front center speaker) connect the DVD Audio Cables on the back of the DVD player to the STEREO (or MIXED ) Output Jacks. If it is connected to the Left Front and Right Front jacks of the "Surround Sound" output jacks instead of Stereo(or MIXED) then the dialog will be sent to the CENTER channel output. If you have no center channel speaker you will not hear it. Thus no dialog.
NOTE: In your case for the TV that is mono, here is the solution.
1 Connect a stereo pair of RCA cables (red and white "male" connectors at each end) to the Mixed or Stereo Output of the DVD player (NOT ANY SURROUND OUTPUTS).
2 Purchase an RCA type "Y" connector that has 2 female to a single male connectors on it. Walmart about 3 dollars.
3 Plug the single male plug of the Y connector into the back of the TV set's single mono audio input.
4 Connect the stereo RCA pair from the MIXED output of the DVD player into the Y connector that is now on the back of yourTV.
5 Run your yellow Video output from the DVD into the Back of the Set's yellow input.
That should do it. The sound should be clear and correct with dialog, effects and music.
Hope this helps,
Best,
Mark

Yamaha HTR-5850 Receiver Audio -left front speaker output problem


Does the speaker setup fail the same way?

Yes? Internal amplifier problem.

If No - What source(s) do this?

If just one - reverse its Left and Right inputs to determine which cable or channel on the input device is faulty.

Yamaha RX-V365 Receiver when I hook up my center channel it is not audible at all. The R and L speakers work fine when they were located in the FRONT A and FRONT B terminals, but when I moved everything to...


With what signal did you try? Maybe your signal source (DVD/TV or radio) didn't contain any sounds for the center channel.
Go to the Setup menu, Speaker setup / Manual setup and find there item called "Test tone". It will output a test tone to each speaker individually (you will see on LCD which speaker is being tested at each moment). If you will hear a sound from the center now, there is no issue and center is working fine, just your source didn't contain any sound for the center.

If it doesn't work, then either you have faulty cable, faulty speaker or faulty center output of the receiver.
- Try connecting the center speaker to different output of receiver (this will test if speaker is OK).
- Try connecting working LEFT speaker to left output with CENTER cable (this will test if cable is OK).
- Try connecting working LEFT speaker with working cable to the CENTER output (this will test the output of receiver if OK - but use the Test Tone from Setup).

Audio output


I have the same issue if I connect my digial audio cable from the Yamaha receiver directly to the HDTV. But, I get all 6 speakers working when I connect the Yamaha receiver directly to the Comcast HD box (instead of TV).

I need to set up 4 pair of speakers, two zones. all ceiling mounted.


Okay! all ceiling mounted speakers. I don't know about 4 pair of speakers.Here is the load down:
First pair of ceiling speakers would be left and right front from speaker A or Main output behind your receiver.
Second ONE,but a pair would be connect to the center channel output as your center speaker.
Another pair would be connect to the surround sound left and right(NOT surround BACK left/right.)
Now,you have 5 channel setup at this point,you still need to purchase a power subwoofer to the SUB PRE-OUTPUT behind your Denon receiver.

For Zone two,you would need to connect your other pair of speakers to surround BACK left and right output.
Go to your Denon MENU button,depending on which model you have,some of them will have an on-screen display feature(you would need to have a composite video cable connect from the video output behind your receiver to the TV video input in order to use the on screen menu.)If not,you would have to it view on the front panel of the A/V receiver.
You need to read the detail on how to setup the video and audio as well as distance and DB for the receiver through the menu button.
I will be frank with you,if you are an amateur,Denon is NOT easy to be setup on the first time.

Speakers


If I understand you right, you have 7 speakers on 7 different channels.
When you have just 1 speaker connected it sounds fine, but any time you add more speakers it shuts down, or does it sound fine until you have all 7 of the speakers connected.

Bare with me, and we will figure this out. It is a very diificult job trying to troubleshoot something that is not in front of you.

After this post, it will be about an hour or so before you will hear from me again, I will be on my way home from work.

Is this a 5.1 surround system or is it listed as 7.1?

Do have have any speaker outputs with more than 1 speaker connected to it.

If this is a 5.1 system, do you have speakers connected to the "A and "B" speaker jacks?

What kind of speakers are they, and do they say on the back where you connect the speaker wire what ohm rating they are. Most speakers for your home are 8 ohms.

in case you were wondering what a 5.1 and a 7.1 system is:

the 5.1 system has front right, front left, center, rear right, rear left and the .1 is for the sub-woofer that is normally a RCA jack output on the back of the receiver

The 7.1 has all those same speaker outputs plus it has a surround back with right and left channel.

I will get back to you in about an hour or so.
