Go into the manual setup on the GUI then go to the zone 2 and zone 3 setup. If you are using only the power from the receiver to power the speakers, make sure the setting is for Zone 3 amp "INT" if you still have no volume, on the front of the receiver look at the display, make sure "zone 3" is lit up then use the small remote and turn up the vol. if it's on you will see "zone 3 vol" and the bar going up it should be ok. if it says "fixed" it thinks you have an external volume control, if you do, make sure it's "on" at about 12 o'clock and test. If not, you need to switch it in the on screen "menu" or "GUI" button, follow to zone 2 & 3 vol control and make sure it is set to variable. If you still have no vol post a comment and we can dig further. Hope this helps

I have 4 outdoor speakers and when I hooked up 2 of them the sound was good but when I hooked up the other 2 the sound is muffled. I used 16 gauge wire at about 80 feet. Could the wire size be the problem?

It sounds like the speakers ore out of phase. You need to make sure that all the + connections are connected to the + and the - to the -. If one of the two are reversed there will be cancellation of the sound. All the speakers must move in the same direction all at the same time.

We wired our new home to have outdoor speakers and also speakers to our pool room. Before putting the receiver back into place after wiring the back, we quickly touched a speaker's wires to the wires...

It's not really clear if all of this is Zone 2 or not, or if you intend a second program to play in Zone 2.

If your Zone 2 is to a powered amplifier and its speakers the Zone 2 output would be FIXED (not variable from the host TX-SR705), that is, at a level that the receiving amplifier would control.

Page 99 deals with it.

Having just passive speakers in Zone 2 requires you to set Zone 2 to "ACT(ive)".

Lost almost all sound in both speakers

Test the speakers on a bench if possible with a different receiver and some new wire. Or if you have a multimeter check the impedance, should be 8ohms if it's got a short, it will read 1..... or ....1 If the speaker wire when connected to the outdoor speaker is not siliconed, it acts as a wic and will oxidize the wiring and cause a short. do you have a separate volume control for them? and is that volume control indoor or outdoor? is it connected to a receiver or amplifier? The fastest test though would be to hook up the rock spkrs directly to another unit. If you still have trouble, reply and I will help you troubleshoot further. Hope this helps

the message you are getting is "amp guard". This is the mesage it will display when a short in a speaker wire or speaker with low impedence is hooked to the internal amp and sends it into protect mode, shutting down the amplifier section while the rest of the unit continues to work.
Check your Factory speaker locations for blown speakers or bare wires to metal.

Stereo display works fine, but no sound to speakers.

The wires may have gotten wet and fried something in the sound output in the stereo.
