Receiver Realistic STA 2700: no sound / signal argggh

I bought the receiver just recently. It came without any speakers. I hooked up one speaker to test if it works. But all I got was a realtively loud hum. It doesn't matter which "channel" (TV, Radio, Phono,...) I choose. I hooked up a headphone, same result. When I switch it to FM the signal strenght indicator changes. Hower the left /right speaker channels don't change, so I assume there is no signal. I also hooked up the ground screw on the back but that didn't change anything either. Can someone please give me some advise how to proceed from here?

Sounds like a power supply issue, maybe the transformer when bad, it may need replacing.

My Realistic STA-2380 Receiver SHUTS DOWN

Try disconnecting all the speakers and see if the volume goes up without shutting down (watch the vu meter on the front) if it goes all the way up without dropping, you will need to check your speakers. If the speakers are drawing too much current then the system will go into shutdown(protection mode)could just be a bad speaker. Secondly try blowing out the receiver with canned air and removing anything that would obstruct ventilation.(ie; another device sitting on top of it or in a cabinet where it can not breathe.

Not getting full audio signal

You only need one red from the receiver to reach the right speaker and one white from the receiver to reach the left speaker. You say you have both red and white for L and R coming out of the receiver, are you sure? Because all red ouputs are RIGHT and all white are LEFT. I think you have 2 white and 2 red. One of the white is for a front left speaker and one for a rear left speaker. You need to connect to the one for FRONT speakers.

I have a RX-V1000 Yamaha Receiver. I recently added on speakers for my back yard, but would like to run them independent of the receiver. Meaning I don't want to have to have speakers in the house on...

Any Tape Out (REC) is flat Line Level output for any analog source selected by the RX-V1000.

Or you could just set up Zone 2 as on Page 61 in the manual - with or without the remote capability.

I have a realistic sta-2600 ,no sound from one channel any suggestions? volume knob maybe?

This model is notorious for cold solder joints. Chances are it needs some touch-up soldering.

Audio receiver!

When I watch movies, most of the talking is directed to the center speaker. During surround sound, this gives a more realistic environment, with voices coming from the source (center where your tv is) and ambeint noise coming from the left/right corners.

Get a small center speaker to solve your problem.

What speakers are you using? Are they seperate from the TV set? How is the audio attached to the TV set. What inputs I mean are you using for the speakers and the sound for the TV set?

Hooking up a turn table

You should get a turntable adapter. They adjust the impedance so they can be plugged into a typical auxiliary input. Or you get a DJ mixer; most can do the same thing. I have an old Realistic Stereo mixer that does the job, and it has two phono inputs, as well as a Tape input. Very handy for this purpose. Go to Radio Shack if your budget is tight, but a pro DJ mixer would probably be the best solution for an audiophile.
