Very low sound from all channels

The problem i am having is that although everything on the unit works perfect there is very little sound coming from the speakers to the point where you have to put your ear right next to the speaker to hear sound coming through it. everything else on the unit works fine and it does not blow fuses. This unit was costly in its day and i would like to get it fixed or know maybe some ideas as to the problem? Thank you michael

Re: very low sound from all channels

Have you tried changing the settings via the LEVEL button on the remote for EACH INDIVIDUAL SPEAKER?  Hope this helps!

One other solution is that the reciever has a "pre-out" and "main in" connection on the back meant for an external EQ to be hooked up, without the EQ you need to put jumpers from the outs to the ins

Re: very low sound from all channels

Without a model # it's hard to say what you have or what the problem might be, but since you said "in the day" I'll assume it's old enough to have a tape monitor function... Make sure Tape Monitor 2 is not on. Also make sure you are on the correct A/B setting.

I have polk audio rm 705 purchased from my friend a month ago. these are working fine but one day one speaker just have very low sound coming from tweeter where as the main speaker is silent.

Try switching the speakers left to right. If the same speaker is bad on both channels, the speaker is bad. If the good speaker is now bad, the unit driving the speakers is bad.

Trying to get my ps3, Emerson hd tv and coby DVD938 home theater all to work together

The DVD938 only has analog audio input (2.1 channel), thats why you have only a white (left channel) and red (right channel) audio connection from your ps3 to the home theatre. There is an option called PROLOGIC in the setup menu that will simulate 5.1 with the 2.1, it basically takes the 2.1 channels and splits it into all the speakers.

I am not able to hear the dialog while playing DVDs. The background is great and comes through all 5 speakers, however, to be able to listen to the dialog, I have to switch over to 2-channel or Stereo. ...

Well let me first ask is the center chanel working? or properly hooked up. Cause most of the times when in 5.1 the talking or "dialog" as you put it comes only through the center channel its just kinda how they do it. Listen to see if the center channel is working. if you are unsure try hooking up a speaker that you know works into the center channel speaker output. If no sound comes out then the reciever possible has blown its center channel. Please follow up with a comment and i will be glad to assist you further thanks, Midwes-tek

The background music of the dvd movie is playing but there is no sound of the people in the movie speaking. Is the set up setting wrong?


Yes, fortunately this is only a minor setting which needs to be set right. Although i have never worked on this unit before, all you need to do is to have a look on the remote itself.

The problem is that the player is set to play through the wrong channels. Hence, you can hear the background music and sound, but not the voices. This is because the voice is sent to a channel which does not exist.

On the remote there is usually a button saying channel or sound channel...Something in this line. This will enable you to cycle through the sound channels(2.0 ; 5.1 ; 7.1 etc)

If you cannot find this button on the remote, you will need to have a look around in the sound setting menu.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

Sound on speech is really really low, but music is fine (music within film is perfect) but I cant hear the dialogue

Perhaps if we knew the make/model we could dive into the manual (as you should do) and figure it out. As a hip-shot, I'd guess the center channel is adjusted too low or the center speaker is malfunctioning or undefined.

You don't say what you hear the dialog from. Mostly it would be the center channel, but sometimes it is shared across the front channels.

Samsung AV-R720 - front right speaker crackles

THIS RECEIVER IS JUNK. I had the same problem with my receiver and Samsung gave me a new unit as it was under warranty. 8 months later the replacement which was brand new did the same thing. Samsung tells me it is my problem now. I should have demanded another unit. the best advice I have is not to buy this product. Samsung won't help you when it breaks and it will break. Nobody seems to know how to fix it.......
