Speaker volume low when set to TV

I've checked my connections and cables and all are in working order.  When the receiver is set to TV/SAT I have to "crank" the volume to max just to hear it.  I've played CDs DVDs and both respond as it should (I don't have to turn the volume above 10).  Any help, suggestions are greatly appreciated,  Thanks...

    Did the posted solution work for you? I have the same problem and have tried everything from re-routing the lines to my Sat, Tivo, DVD, and TV to new wires. Let me know if you have any luck.

    Is there any way to set a limit to the max volume? Meaning, instead of the max volume be at 73, have it set to 55.

    I have a kenwood 6050 receiver. I was playing with my remote one day and accidentally set the max volume at-10 db. Which is loud but but I know it is capable of going a lot louder which is what I want and I know my speakers can handle a lot more than what I am hearing

No audio after recording from sat. Reciever

Double-check your input cables from the receiver to the LG 389. Do you have the sat. receiver AV out connected to the front AV In on the LG DRT389? Make sure that you haven't mixed up the L and R audio connections on either side. (I've done something similar with RCA cables myself.) Next, try a different set of cables.

If that doesn't work, there may be a problem with the audio jacks on either your receiver or the 389. To check, plug the AV cables from the Sat. Receiver directly into the TV. If you have sound and video, then the input jacks on the recorder may be damaged.

Try using another input. (It looks like some models have the SCART input; you may need to set the input source in the menu under AV2 Decoder.)

The fact that you have audio output on USB and DVD's means that cables/connections between the LG289 and the TV are fine.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the details of which AV port you are using on the LG389 for additional assistance.

Yamaha rx 530 center channel cuts out

Thanks for all the suggestions guys.

I've tried using the balance for left and right speakers, and when the receiver is acting up with the right speaker having a low volume, I tried moving the balance all the way over to the right speaker. The right speaker volume will not increase in volume but the left speaker will decrease in volume.

Just to clarify, the center and the rear speakers are balanced. The issue only happens sometimes when I first power on the receiver I will have no center channel. If I leave everything alone for a few mins, the center channel will come on.

So it seems to me that something one the receiver is going. The question is, can anyone suggest a physical repair for the receiver for these symptoms?

No audio,tried menu items and selections,nothing.The sound just went out,what do you think it might be?

There is no sound or low volume coming from the television speakers.
Solution Follow this procedure to troubleshoot when there is no sound or low volume coming from the television.

NOTE: Because each of these steps represents a possible solution to this issue, check the television status after completing each step.
Increase the volume of the television. Ensure the television audio has not been muted. Ensure no headphones are not connected to the television. If using a set-top box with a volume control, increase the volume of the set-top box.
NOTE: If the set-top box is connected using an Audio/Video (A/V) connection, ensure that the A/V cables are connected securely to the appropriate video input on the television.
Verify that the MTS settings of the television are set to MAIN or STEREO .
NOTE: If the source device is not set to stereo or is not capable of transmitting a stereo signal, sound may come from one speaker on the TV only, and the volume will sound low. In this case, adjust or replace the source device.
If the TV has a Simulated effect in the audio menu, turn it off . Ensure the televisions speakers are not set as the center speaker.
NOTE: Some televisions allow the televisions speakers to act as the center channel speaker when using a multi-channel receiver.
Verify that the speakers are set to ON in the television menu.
IMPORTANT: If the television has audio output jacks and they are connected to a stereo system, then the speakers on the television may be turned off. Some televisions require the internal speakers or the center speaker setting to be off before audio can be sent out to a stereo receiver via the audio out jacks.
Ensure all audio and video cable connections are properly connected to the television.
Test the television using another source like a VCR, DVD player or Blu-ray Disc™ (BD) player.
Reset the television to the original factory settings. To reset your TV to factory settings, turn the TV ON. Then, while pressing the UP ARROW button on the Remote Control, press the POWER button on the TV. The TV will turn itself OFF then back ON.
NOTE: If your remote control does not have a RESET button or the procedure did not reset the TV to the factory default settings, perform a power reset.
If the issue is still unresolved after completing all the troubleshooting steps suggested, service may be required.

Yamaha RX-V365 unable to receive 5.1 audio from TV with HDMI

If you're expecting multichannel sound FROM THE TV instead of from the source you're watching, it's not gonna happen. TV's are notoriously poor sound sources. This one is no different.

Multichannel TV-related audio is best found at its source - cable / sat / dvd / bd....

I run video-related audio from my video sources directly to my TV and their audio directly to my receiver. Specialization yields best results.

I'd recommend skipping the Receiver for video, too, as it adds a lot of opportunity for HDMI-related incompatibilities and sound syncing problems. The more interconnects in the path, the more distorted it will become and the more opportunities for problems. Plus you can bypass the receiver and listen to lo-fi programming like news and weather through the TV's speakers if you like. Save a buck on electricity.

Just curious, which HDMI on the receiver is connected to your TV? Input or Output?

This note is on Page 11 of the manual:

Audio signals input at the HDMI jack are not output from any speaker terminals but output from the connected video monitor. To enjoy the sound from speakers connected to this unit,
-- make an analog or digital connection besides the HDMI connection (see page 13).
-- mute the volume on the connected video monitor

"Check SP cable." -- The unit is perceiving a short circuit. Are your speaker impedances sufficiently high? Disconnect the Front Right speaker and try raising the volume again. The speaker may be blown or the cable shorting.

Back ground music louder than voices watching movies on cable

Is this a new problem or always like this? <<<<<<<<

What is your speaker complement? The center usually carries the dialog.

Are the receiver and its speaker systems set up per the manual? Make it so.

How is the TV-related (Cable) audio entering your receiver? It SHOULD be from the cable box, digitally if available, NOT the TV. You don't need a Low-Fi middleman handling your audio.

Can't get sound from TV alone. Am using an optical audio cord. It is hooked up through a digital cable box. Even before this we couldn't get sound from TV alone.

I assume that you mean your TV speakers are not operating OR you do not get audio from TV channel sources.
If you want your TV speakers to work, make sure that the TV speaker is enabled in the TV setup menu.
If your TV is connected to the receiver to get audio from it through external speakers powered by the receiver, then make sure you have a connection from the TV labeled as "variable audio out" into the receiver on a panel labeled as something to the like of "TV/SAT IN" or "TV/SAT AUDIO IN." Then, turn the volume all the way up on the TV, then operate it with the master volume on the receiver.

Low to no volume output from Integra DTR-5.2 receiver

most higher end integra's have a input level adjusment or input selection for each and every input. Perhaps you are not on the correct input, go to onscreen programming and check out the input level and input select - also try the tape in another input like tape 2 or cd. It will not hurt the receiver for a test. Also, if you are using the cheap cables from the manufacturer - try a pair of cables that you know work or go by some. BTW, you don't need to spend $40 for cables order them online through amazon or other store. Gold / sliver plated oxygen free are best.

Center speaker

I had the exact same problem. In order to "almost" balance the center with the other channels I had to give the center +12db gain and the other channels -12db. So after I got that far with level calibration I tried some tv sound, well the center although was playing sounded like the highs were missing and a bit distorted. This is the good part, I turned the volume all the way up real fast, somewhere near max something fixed itself, the center became very loud. Now it works just like new. Hope this helps. BTW, the problem existed the same for sub channel, so when the center started working so did the sub.
