Question about Yamaha RX-V663 Receiver

1 Answer

I have just completed running the automatic speaker setup program 4 times. Each time it has given a warning message that two speakers have their wires reversed. I have checked the wiring terminals and tightened the wires. The wires are not reversed. During the setup the sounds seem to be the same over each speaker. What should I do? Thanks Martin Bates

    Do what it says and reverse the wires.

    They may have been made on a friday :)

    The wires in the speaker may have been reversed.

    Give it a try and re-post results.

Check both the phase and position of the speakers. Phase is that the speaker wires are positive is to positive and negative is to negative from the receiver to the speaker. Then check that the speakers are in the proper place in the room,( front left is in the front on the left side when facing the TV).

No sound from Russound ss-4 after connecting to BACK surround speaker connections on the 2807.


Check the speaker setup configuration in the setup menu. Many times the surround back speaker terminals can be assigned to something else like zone 2. They may just be turned off.

Very dull sound from the 4 rear spekers on my 7.1 set up for the ONKYO 802. This happens for the satellite input for tv channels, is this normal that I will only get surround sound via a disc or other...


Your basic setup through the Onkyo establishes the base levels of each speaker channel with test tones. The tones should also sound pretty much the same from speaker to speaker.

How a given surround mode works with a given input would be documented in the manual. Even stereo sources can be proecessed into some form of 7-speaker output.

"ONKYO 802" is not unique. Are there letters?

I can not hear speaker called "LS". I've run new speaker wires with no results. Is it time for a new receiver?


Well if you can hear RS then take it to your local electronics repair store if warranty has expired. If you cant hear RS aswell then you might not have the right number of speaker's or speakers setup right. if you have 7.1 then you will have LS and RS speakers if it is 5.1 setup then then rear speaks have an option on most to be a rear (behind speakers) or rear (side speakers

When i put on my 3600 protect come on right away


Hi there,

I'd suggest switching the power off then disconnecting all of your speakers, then switch the power on again. If the PROTECT warning still comes on, you have a fault within the amp. If not, re-connect your speakers one at a time and power down between connecting each one. If you get the PROTECT message after connecting a particular speaker, you have found the cause of the fault and you should inspect the speaker cable and connections for that speaker and replace if damaged.

If you reconnnect all of the speakers and the message does not appear, one of your speakers probably wasn't connected correctly.

Hope this helps. Please try this and post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

It can be either problem with the receiver itself, cables or your speakers. You can try different combinations to narrow down the issue.
1) Also the radio does not work?

2) Try to run the Test tone to the speakers (Setup / Speaker setup / Manual setup / Test tone). If you hear the tone, then the issue is configuration problem with your inputs.

3) If possible, try to connect headphones to the receiver. If that works, it can be issue with cables/speakers or their setup.

4) Try to run the Automatic Speaker setup with YPAO microphone. It will eventually fail, but will provide you error code, which you can lookup in the manual for different reasons.

5) Try disconnecting all the cables and reconnecting them again, possible trying left speaker with right cable and right speaker with left cable.

"Low Imp"


Low Impedance is not a suggestion, it is a WARNING. Your receiver is telling you it senses TOO LOW a load and it's trying to protect itself from damage.

Speakers A& B are running in parallel, so their combined impedance, X, is found by using the formula: 1/X = 1/A + 1/B.

In other words, two 8-ohm speakers in parallel would yield a 4-ohm load.

If your speakers are identical, try running them in series on one speaker output pair. That would keep the impedance safely high.

Surround speakers are not working


Yes. Make sure your speakers are first properly connected, then enabled to operate on the setup menu. Then run either a test tone for all channels or media recorded in surround sound or run in 4 channel stereo to test.
Not all media will produce surround effects 100% of the time.

7.1 speaker setup: no sound coming from right front/surr speakers


Solution to having no sound coming from certain speakers in a 7.1 speaker setup for TX-SR606 receiver when playing a DVD.

Review the cable setup for the DVD player since it was identified as the source of the problem. Best to unplug and plug in the cables to ensure they contact the back of the receiver's RCA jacks. Redo the microphone setup for Audyssey 2EQ calibration. A good chance that it is the cable that may have caused the malfunction and loss of sound from the speakers. The cables can come loose during setup and not plugged all the way to the back of the RCA jacks or a defective cable causing signal loss.

Surround speakers work in test mode but won't come on during play


Check that you set it to Pro logic and check the speaker set-up. Set it to 5.1 Sounds like somthing is in the wrong setting.
