SOURCE: Center and surround speakers work, but front right and front left speakers do not put out any sound

I had the same problem. Set the reciever on 6 channel stereo. On this setting, you should be getting the same sound out of each speaker. Isolate which speakers aren't getting sound. Now, on your speaker switch (the A/B button), select A. If that doesn't fix it, select B. If that doesn't fix it, try A and B (if you can on your reciever).

Now, when you switch back to pro-logic, make sure your a/b channel switch is in the position that worked in 6 channel stereo. Yamaha recievers have a memory, and when you switch various modes, it makes auto adjustments based on what you had set in the past.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: Bass speaker not working

make sure speaker voice coil are still good...continuity checks will confirm this....as far as 6 channel hook up, you need to know what the lowest impedance allowed is from your system and then wire up your speakers in series /parallel to come up with a final impedance that will very closely match the systems minimum output impedance

SOURCE: Yamaha rx-v2200 sound problem

Hi Zanthena - my Yamaha rx v 2200 is doing exactly the same thing - did you manage to track the problem down? I have had my unit in for repair and the fault occurred again 6 hours after I re-installed it.

Any help would really be appreciated!

No rear sound in philips home cinema


Sometimes the rear sound or other speakers can accidentally get switched off, when changing sound modes. Check that this has not happened. Most amps have test modes that send out beeps or some other form of noise to the speakers. Try that and see if they are working.
If you can't find anything that has switched them off and there are no beeps on the channel. It could be that the amp that controls the rear channels has failed.

When i play dvd i hear background music really clearly and voices are hardly audible - this happens on channel 5.1. if i swap to channel 2. i hear the filmmaker commentary! dvd was working fine until...


sounds like the speakers are out of order and/or maybe 1 or 2 not connected. use a AA battery and "pop" each speaker wire. it's low voltage and amperage so it won't damage your speakers. but the pop will allow you to know exactly what speaker you have and if it's connected. now make sure to put it in the correct spot. i would start with the center channel. sounds like this one's not connected.
please rate if this was helpful!

I have a problem with my samsung ht-up30 home theather system. When i turn it on it only shows "PROTECTION" and turns itself off right after that. How to fix it? Regards!!!


The amplifier has a bad channel, or is bad itself. It is trying to either output too much current or is not putting out enough. If you have multiple speakers wired to one channel, you will either have to change the wiring to series(unit positive to first speaker red, first red to second BLACK, second red to unit negative) or remove on speaker. (If this is the case, then you might want to look at this. It is a tip/rick to place and properly/successfully run three subwoofers, but the main concept can be used on all channels.) If all channels are wired to he correct speaker, then the amp is in fact at fault.

No sound from front left channel


Try swapping the connectors for front-left and front-right (just swap right at the back of the amp)

After the swap, does the front-left speaker work, and now the front-right is dead? If so, then it's a problem in the amp.
If not, then the problem is in the wiring and/or the front-left speaker itself.

Post back here with your findings, and we'll troubleshoot whichever part of the system is broken.

I have an RCA surround sound system for my Big screen. Lately we have horrible static in the main speaker, is the speaker bad? If I unhook it, the rest of the speakers are fine.


Could be bad, swap it with another channel. if the problem is still in the same speaker the speaker is bad. if it still crackels in the other speaker the problem is in the amp.

Sony DAV-SC8. I'm suddenly getting distortion


It sounds like the speakers themselves are the problem rather than the amp.
Although, it would be rare to have overdriven/blown the surrounds.
My suggestion would be to isolate which speakers or channels (on Amp) are at fault.
Swap left and right to see if the problem transfers across.

Left Speaker not working


if you swap the speakers and the dead one moves,than it is the amp that is missing a channel,in your case,it is the speaker.
if you try the good speaker in both speaker outputs,it should work on both to confirm the dead speaker theory.
there may be a broken wire in the speaker from shipping.

Speaker Problem


Try swapping the speakers to the opposite channels (left and right) and see if the problem is on the same side. If it is, then you may have a bad channel in your amplifier/receiver.

No sound


Why would the sockets be bad??Is it that you move around the wires and the sound comes and goes?? Most likly it would be the rear channel amp. IC and this is a non consumer serviceable part. Check out the speakers on the front channel by switching the wires. If they come on then you know you have a problem with the rear Amp circuit. Contact a local repair shop and see if they can handle this repair . If not contact 800-211-PANA. Good Luck
