I've tried using the balance for left and right speakers, and when the receiver is acting up with the right speaker having a low volume, I tried moving the balance all the way over to the right speaker. The right speaker volume will not increase in volume but the left speaker will decrease in volume.
Just to clarify, the center and the rear speakers are balanced. The issue only happens sometimes when I first power on the receiver I will have no center channel. If I leave everything alone for a few mins, the center channel will come on.
So it seems to me that something one the receiver is going. The question is, can anyone suggest a physical repair for the receiver for these symptoms?
Can you say explicitly that the Center Channel speaker is defined as something other than NONE?
And how does dialog sound? If it sounds ok you're routing it to the front speakers. This is from the manual...
"For ideal Surround effects, all speakers should be installed. If a
center speaker or subwoofer is not connected, the sound from the unused channel is properly distributed to the connected speakers in order to produce the best Surround sound possible."
Could be a number of things.
Most likely your surround sound mode. Some people dont like Dolby. Try to switch to 5 channel stereo.
Other option is to turn the center channel speaker channel volume up. Voices and dialog come from the center channel speaker in Dolby modes. Post back if you need instructions.

The volume control may need to be cleaned. Find a spray cleaner made for electronics, relays, ect. and spray it into the volume control from the back side of it where it connects into the circuit board. After getting the cleaner into the volume control, work it in by turning the control back and forth over and over again. Do all of this with the power unplugged from the unit. After you finish cleaning the volume control, plug it back in and turn it on and then check to see if it is working normal. Volume controls can get oxidized and dirty after a few years and require cleaning. I hope this helps, let me know if you need any further help.
How do you have it hooked up to speakers (are you using a center channel)? What listening mode are you in (dolby digital, stereo, pro-logic...)? It sounds as though you're not getting center channel info....
It sounds like the center channel isn't plugged into the correct speaker output. Unhook the speakers and reattach them while paying VERY close attention to which jacks you're putting them in. Report back with results.
