I have recently moved. I am now attempting to set up my stereo and can hear sound out of the center channel fine but can't hear anything out of the left or right speakers. I have checked to make sure the speakers do work, but they won't make any sound when hooked up to the receiver even in test. What am I doing wrong???

Try removing all the speaker and the HDMI connections; then use a headphone to listen to music from the tuner or a CD in stereo mode. Better in direct mode. If you hear your music correctly the receiver could be working correctly. If no music is heard, you may need to have it repaired professionally.
If you can hear music, connect the main FL & FR speakers and verify you can hear music that way, without the headphone connected.
If you can hear music that way, connect the center and rears. Try a mode that uses all channels to verify all sound channels are working.
Then, and only then start adding your HDMI connections.
The Audio settings are most likely set to surround sound and not Stereo. The Talking is put through the center channel when set to surround sound. If your only using a left and right speaker, the audio must be set to stereo. That is also may need to be set on the DVD player or any audio source to the TV
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.
" Some DVD\'s sound fine whilst others have background sounds but no
voices. I do have an old model TV that has mono sound.Would that cause
" Hi, I wrote a short article for someone who had a similar problem a few days ago. I will edit it for you so that it fits. Here it is. Your DVD player should have output connectors in the
back of it to plug your amplifier or receiver into. If you have a Stereo
system (no surround sound speakers, or front center speaker) connect
the DVD Audio Cables on the back of the DVD player to the STEREO (or MIXED ) Output
Jacks. If it is connected to the Left Front and Right Front jacks of
the "Surround Sound" output jacks instead of Stereo(or MIXED) then the dialog
will be sent to the CENTER channel output. If you have no center channel
speaker you will not hear it. Thus no dialog. NOTE: In your case for the TV that is mono, here is the solution. 1 Connect a stereo pair of RCA cables (red and white "male" connectors at each end) to the Mixed or Stereo Output of the DVD player (NOT ANY SURROUND OUTPUTS). 2 Purchase an RCA type "Y" connector that has 2 female to a single male connectors on it. Walmart about 3 dollars. 3 Plug the single male plug of the Y connector into the back of the TV set's single mono audio input. 4 Connect the stereo RCA pair from the MIXED output of the DVD player into the Y connector that is now on the back of yourTV. 5 Run your yellow Video output from the DVD into the Back of the Set's yellow input. That should do it. The sound should be clear and correct with dialog, effects and music. Hope this helps, Best, Mark
Yes, I can help you. Your DVD player should have output connectors in the back of it to plug your amplifier or receiver into. If you have a Stereo system (no surround sound speakers, or front center speaker) connect the DVD Audio Cables on the back of the DVD player to the STEREO Output Jacks. If it is connected to the Left Front and Right Front jacks of the "Surround Sound" output jacks instead of Stereo is that the dialog on is sent to the CENTER channel output. If you have no center channel speaker you will not hear it. If you have a surround sound system with two speakers in front and two speaker in back. Then you need to make a change in the Receiver Setup (Which may be set up for 3 speakers in front) so that it is set up for 2 speakers in front. The last thing my simply be that you have a center channel front speaker that is not completely connected because of a wire falling off, etc. Hope this helps, Best, Mark
I think your driver might be outdated. Try getting a new one here. Also, you were listening to a disk in the computer? Well then perhaps the speaker lead from the DVD/CD player to the sound card internally is flipped? If sound works correctly from everything but disks that is probably it.
I had a similar problem, now to be honest there is quite a couple of things that could be faulty. I dont know which cable you are using between the source and the amp, but i am using RCA to mini jack.
I had the same problem that my tuner on amp played through all channels dvd as well, but as soon as i hook up the amp to my computer only some of the chanels played.
I found out that there is actually mono and stereo versions of of that cable thus, if you use a external source and channel it trough the amp with a mono cable, only some channels will be playing.
If you use a stereo cable both channels will work.
The other problem could just be a simple setting on the amp itself.
Usually you can set the number of channels you want the amp to be set on. It is very simple, locate this function an try every setting untill you hear that all channels are working.
It could also be an "ic" on the heatsink of the amp which overheated, if you open up the amp you will be able to see it instantly. This will explain the slight sound you manage to hear.
My advice is to try the first and second sollution and as a last resort send it to a repair shop or if you still have warrenty send it back. I doubt that it is a hardware problem on the amp itself.
The problem is that your center channel is not functioning correctly. Dialogue is typically routed to the center channel only in 5.1, so if you don't have a working center channel all you will get is sound FX and background sound.
Go through all your settings, verify that they are correct. Verify that your center channel is working properly, and wired to the correct output.
Test the center channel speaker and I feel confident you will find something amiss.
