The controls I would check are speaker set-up and configuration for a multi-channel sound, be sure to enable center channel YES/NO option and trim center channel level output.

Speakers not playing


The problem can be the cable or speakers or RX-V463 or settings. Need to check one by one.
Set the RX-V on DTS or Dolby Digital
1) Check Cables - connect the 2 (surround) cables from RXV's Centre Out to Centre speaker. If the Centre speaker works, then cables are ok.
2) Check speakers - Connect each Surround speaker to RXV's Centre out. If it works Speakers are ok.
3) Check RXV - Set it on DTS or Dolby Digital
Connect RXV's surround out (one at a time) L and R to the Centre speaker. If there is no sound, the problem could be RXV's settings (I need to read the manual).

Hope this helps.

I have a sony str de-475 amplifier and the centre speaker stops working after about a minute. leave amp powered down for a while and it works again but only for about a minute


Try replacing the center speaker with one of the left or right speaker and run it for sometime ( do not connect the center speaker to any other channel ). If the system does not cut off the center speaker connection this way indicates a short in your center speaker.
But with the L/R speaker if the system still stops working you have a hardware problem and will need professional help to fix. 5.1 amps are complicated and difficult to access even for an experienced technician.

I have a Kenwood stereo receiver model k2 3600 , the left speaker keeps going out , the right speaker works fine. I've tried adjusting the speaker wire for the left speaker, and I always end up having...


HI,
BASED ON THE INFO YOU GAVE I HAVE SOME SUGGESTIONS BELOW..

1, switch the working right speakers cable to left output and problem left to right (from the back of receiver -not from the speakers it self..) to see if problem continues..

2.After switching them ,if it (old left new right one ) still stops left speaker cable may have short ( a tiny cable inner pieces may touching to other side ) at either at the back of receiver output or at the end ,at speaker input .
make sure you control it carefully...if the problem persist please contact to me..

Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up
for Helping out the Community :)

Hope this helps!
Thanks

We have had this system for more than 6months. We turned it on the other day to discover no sound output. Nothing through blueray, iPod, cd or even TV. We have 2 x hdmi cables and 1 x optical cable. Any...


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.

Speakers stop working


This is either a loose connection internally or a dirty control such as the volume control. Both of these will require a trip to the shop

Kenwood VR-507 Now only get sound from 1 front speaker. all other speakers have stopped. Have not changed anything.


PROCESS OF ELIMINATION: connect each of the other speaker in the working to check to see if the wires and other speakers are working. If all speaker play when connected to the working channel check all other cables and connections....use the tuner as an working source to test. If that doesn't help then you may have an bad channel in your amp and may need to be repaired.

Stops working after a few mins with cd player playing


One of three things: speaker wire short, shorted/or blown speaker, or a bad output chip. First and easiest way to check is to disconnect all speakers, turn it on, turn it up, and wait. If that's ok, begin connecting one speaker at a time with the unit off, then turn on and play. When you get to the speaker or wire with the problem, it will short and go into protection. Disconnect all speaker wires again and only hook up the speaker that shorted the receiver and test. If it shorts, swap speakers with the same wire and test again. If a different speaker on the same wire causes the unit to short, replace the wire. if it doesn't, you need to test the speaker with a multimeter or disassemble if possible, check the wiring internally on the speaker. Check the impedance, should be 8ohms or 6ohms depending on the drivers. then check for resistance. If your meter says 1... it's shorted and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps

Nakamichi AV-7 5.1


in this case the centre speakers are the main route to the sound. 5.1 is for movies, where the centre speaer takes predcedence.

No sound at all


I suggest if your handy , to open the receiver and look for a circuit breaker or a fuse that protects unit of being damage , replace it and turn it on , hopefully it will work .

Volume and multi channel output issue


Hi there. Are you familiar with board level repair for such products ? Your problem is most likely hardware. Either some of the final output transistors are fried, or it's a dsp problem, a regulator, a diode, a transistor in the circuit.. it could be a lot of things. But if everything was working fine and it quit someday without a change in the system's setup, it really looks like an hardware issue ! Do you have a way in the manual, that sets factory defaults, a kind of reset ? A lot of such units do have that. Try to unplug/interchange speakers as well, a shorted speaker could make the amp go nuts as well, but i wouldn't bet on it. Still, i'd check that out. Hope that helps ! cheebster.
