Denon receiver not working surround output


If everything is connected correct, the only thing I can think of, is you don't put in a surround signal. If you only feed 2 way stereo, only two speaker will work. Also if you switch to stereo, the other channels will stop working. Check the cables, the settings and the input.

My receiver said check sp wire because it is turning of every time


look like you have speakers wires connection issue.
Here is what you can do:
speaker input connector (where attach wires from receiver) 1 is negative and 1 positive post.
Check your receiver output wires positive wires must go to position post in the back of speakers same as negative wire from receiver connect to negative post in the back of your speakers.
Some receiver allow you mix match connection but you will not get good quality sound (low performance)
Hope it help

Sony STR-GX800ES receiver "protector" blinking - no sound


The most common problem found on FixYa for Audio Video2_bing.gif Receiver's is:

My receiver say's "Protect" or turns on then off. What's wrong? Seven times out of ten it is a shorted speaker or speaker wire. To determine your exact problem, the first step is to disconnect all speaker wires "at your receiver" Next: Turn the receiver back on. If your receiver still says "protect" or turns off, it needs to be serviced. If your receiver stays on; reconnect your speakers one at a time and power back up after each speaker. You may find that after reconnecting all speaker wires it works! Most commonly the small braids of wire from the + to the - have touched and have caused the problem. In some instances, you noticed the problem only when turning the volume up. either way, make sure the exposed wires to your receiver are no longer than 1/2" long and are completely under the screw down terminal or slide in. When you've found the wire or speaker with the problem, your receiver will go back into "protect" At this point, disconnect the wire from the speaker at the speaker that may be causing the problem then test again.* Note* Make sure speaker wires do Not touch each other as this Will cause a short! If you turn the receiver back on and it stays on, you now know the problem is in your speaker itself. To test your speaker, you will need a multimeter. Set it to ohms resistance and touch the speaker terminals, if there is a short internally the meter will read "1......" If it's an analog meter, it will peg to the right. There's your problem. Now, within any speaker there are quite a few possibilities as to what could be causing the problem. Most common is a blown coil and the speaker needs to be replaced. Some speakers have internal crossovers (usually floor standing speakers) and may have a shorted or burnt board (usually very visible brown burn marks on the board) and can possibly be repaired if your handy with a soldering iron. Now, if you disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and it still says "protect" Check your wire for the obvious cut or nail thru the wire if possible. If your system has wiring that runs behind walls, you may need to use your meter again. Disconnect the wire at both ends, keep the ends separated, put your meter on ohms resistance and touch probes to the + and - wires at one side. If the meter pegs to the right or reads "1...." the wire is shorted and needs to be replaced or repaired at the short. Hope this helps.

I have hooked by two bose 161 speakers using 14 gauge speaker wire (about 8 feet) to sony str-dg720. But I get absolutely no sound from the speakers. I have hooked the speakers to port A set of input...


You gots ta isolate the problem.  Disconnect the speakers and hook them up to a stereo you know that works.  If you don't hear sound coming out of the speakers, then you know the speakers are fu.k.d up, so you need to look on the speakers to see if there is a fuse that is blown that needs to be replaced.  If you got sound coming through, then disconnect them and hook them back to the original stereo making sure you got a good connection and all the wires are in good and tight.  Then turn your stereo on and go through the various channels like Tuner, Tape Deck, Aux, and DVD to see if you get any sound.  Also turn the volume knob up. If you don't get any sound after all this, you know there is something wrong with the stereo your using.

Error 71 an the reciever shuts down


You have a speaker short. Disconnect all speaker wires at the receiver, then turn it back on to test. If you don't get the error code, your receiver is still ok. Reconnect your speaker wires one by one and test the power on the receiver until you find the wire that's causing the problem. Then disconnect that wire at the speaker and test again, this will determine if you have a bad wire or a bad speaker. If the receiver still reads error without speakers attatched, you will need to send it for service. While it's at service, check all wires and speakers for shorts with a meter if you can. This is the most common failure of all receivers, a shorted wire. Hope this helps

No sound from speakers


check to make sure you have your speakers turned "ON" many amps have "A" and "B" speakers or 1 and 2 and then check the back to make sure no wires are touching and determine what output you are using for your speakers.... also you have to make sure that that corresponding button is depressed for those speakers.... also check you have the correct input selceted for your speakers and that no wires are crossed..... theres is probably notihng wrong with the speakers you just need to paly with your amp

Onkyo tx-sv727 Protect displayed


first thing if it says protect, check the fuses inside the system they may of blown .When choosing wire gauge, consider the quality of your components and speakers, the overall sound quality you're trying to achieve, and the budget you're working with. Also, keep in mind the distance between your receiver or amp and your speakers long wire runs can cause significant power losses, and thus require thicker cable. You can use this as a guideline
Distance from speaker to amplifier Gauge
Less than 80 feet 16
80 to 200 feet 14
More than 200 feet 12
