Center Channel not Working

Center channel mysteriously stopped working.  I've confirmed that it's the tuner and not a speaker problem.  Have toggled settings on and off and still no sound coming out of Center.

    While I keep a press at the back conectors I can clearly hear the relay and the center channel start working again. I removed the cover and inserted a little wood object between the relays to constantly have a pressure on the relay, but since a few days it stop working. Im almost sure is a cold solder connection, but it is very difficult to reach the solder side of the board..Today Im going to dissasemble, if I destroy it, it was time to buy another receiver...

    Are the rear speakers working on whatever you are trying to listen to?

Check that it's center speaker in the set-up menu is on and that the sound field that it's in uses the center speaker. try it in pro logic. It could be a bad solder connection on the speaker terminal or on the relay in the receiver.

Receiver says center channel unavailable


It may be the surround mode you are in. Some modes do not use the center channel. Try changing to a pro logic mode, these will almost always use the center

Yamaha rx 530 center channel cuts out


Thanks for all the suggestions guys.

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?

Thanks

Back ground sound is so high you can't hear the dialog ,meaning having \r\nto turning ssound up way too high


This can mean only one thing. Your center channel is not working. Either you have a damaged center speaker of you have a damaged center amplifier. You can confirm by first turning down the volume to normal levels and disconnect any one of the speakers and connect it to the center channel output. If you can hear the dialog the center speaker is defective.
Another way to hear the dialog is to change the surround setting to PL II music or just disable surround and chose Stereo mode.

We can't hear spoken audio on our recent dvds (movies), only the music. Some of the the older movies are fine.


Your center channel speaker is not working. In modern 5.1 movies dialogue only comes from the center channel. Older movies were stereo/mono so the dialogue would come from both the front speakers.
See if the speaker wires are intact and not loose. After that to confirm if the speaker is OK or defective exchange the center speaker with one of the working ones.If the center speaker does not produce sound, you will have to replace it. But if it works, that would mean that your center channel amplifier is not working & for that you will need professional help.
CHECK CABLES FIRST FOR LOOSE CONTACTS.

In dolby digital mode i can not get any voice volume. All other sounds are ok


Assuming that you mean Dolby digital 5.1, confirm that you have a center channel properly connected and perform the following;

Using the remote, enter the menu on the receiver and navigate to the selection labeled "LEVEL." Toggle through the selections until you reach the "CENTER CHANNEL". You will be able to use the remote to increase the volume of that channel in .5dB increments.

Center channel stoped working on onkyo Dr-S2.2


Have you re-run the speaker definition and level steps? I can't find the manual. Perhaps you could flip a few pages in the Troubleshooting Section.

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.

Problem with right channel on vintage Denon PMA-501 amplifier. No sound... Any advice? Thanks...


Good day sir/maam, to verify if the right channel is the problem, swap the speakers to confirm. Assuming that the right channel is the problem, set the balance control to the right (or simply disconnect the left speaker) and place you ear near the problem right speaker. Adjust the volume control up and down several times. you should hear a soft hiss that goes up and down also. this comfirm that the power amplifier stage is good. the problem is anywhere from the tuner/tape/cd/switch or jack. If you dont hear the hiss sound then the power amplifier is the problem. in both cases, you may need to bring it to a service center. hope this helps.

Centre speaker


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.
