Center speaker will not work

I have a Onyko HT-R540 reciever. I have no sound through the center speaker. When I run a test, all the speakers work except for the center speaker. All other speakers work well. Other than a possible defect with the reciever, is there any adjustment or setting I am over looking ?

If you had the Speakers Set to A (not B) and no headphones connected when you pressed the TEST TONE button on the Onkyo HT-R540 (also known as the HTS-790) remote, and you had no sound from the Center Speaker then try the following steps. 1) Check the Center Speaker wiring at both ends under a bright light and make sure that there is not a strand of wire touching the Receiver Chassis or another speaker post. Check both + and - . If that looks okay, 2) unscrew the Center Speaker Post connections on the Receiver and verify that the bare stripped wire is making contact. Often, the insulation is too far into the connector. When screwed down, the wire's insulation is crushed and keeps the bare wire from making contact. If this looks okay and the unit is under Warranty, your last test is to: 3) temporarily swap the wires from the Center Speaker with the Right Front Speaker. Turn the volume down low and try the TEST TONE button again. If you now hear sound from the Center Speaker box itself and none from the Right Speaker box, then the Receiver is the problem. If you still do not hear sound from the Center Speaker box, then the Center speaker itself is defective.

No sound from center speaker or subwoofer on HT-R500 av receiver


Take a left or right speaker that you know works and connect it to the center and test. Repeat for the sub.

Are you sure you setup the AVR correctly that it knows you have a center and sub?

I have a Onyko TX-SR303 5.1 Receiver and sound is only coming out of left front speaker.


Could be the IC that controls the various sound/surround channel modes. Had that happen on my Pioneer receiver.
Charged me close to 200 bucks to fix!

No sound from it.


I guess it was working all along, but simply would not respond to the test sound from my Onyko. But when I put in a DVD it is definitely putting out sound. So I don't know why it will not respond to the test sound because all the other speakers respond to the test sound. ???
Thanks.

Samsung ht-z310 home cinema no sound rear speakers


I seen the same thing when I first opened mine except my "center" speaker wan't working. It had to do with the "Mode" it was in. The Mode button at the botoom of the remote changes the speaker configuration.

There is also an option in the setup that allows you to turn on/off speakers for the system, all of mine were either Present or Small which enables them to work.

Center and surround speakers work, but front right and front left speakers do not put out any sound


I had the same problem. Set the reciever on 6 channel stereo. On this setting, you should be getting the same sound out of each speaker. Isolate which speakers aren't getting sound. Now, on your speaker switch (the A/B button), select A. If that doesn't fix it, select B. If that doesn't fix it, try A and B (if you can on your reciever).

Now, when you switch back to pro-logic, make sure your a/b channel switch is in the position that worked in 6 channel stereo. Yamaha recievers have a memory, and when you switch various modes, it makes auto adjustments based on what you had set in the past.

Hope this helps

If your tv is putting out mono you will only get the center and sub speakers. This can be because the tv is only mono, or the output is set to mono in a menu of the tv. If you have cable or sat run the digital audio out to you receiver; it usually sound better that way anyhow. Set your receiver to Dolby mode for best sound.
