Re: no sound from center channel

Try a Master Reset on the unit. All of your settings will have to be re-entered but it may solve your problem.

For a Master Reset: unplug the unit. Depress the SPEAKER A and the SPEAKER B buttons on the front panel at the same time and hold them in. While still depressing those buttons, plug in the unit to the wall outlet THEN release the speaker selector buttons.

Center channel problem

Sound circuit card has likely failed. Without the proper electrical tools (oscilloscope) it is hard to fix. Take it in and see what they say it will cost to repair. Take to at least two different shops.

In dolby digital mode i can not get any voice volume. All other sounds are ok

Assuming that you mean Dolby digital 5.1, confirm that you have a center channel properly connected and perform the following;

Using the remote, enter the menu on the receiver and navigate to the selection labeled "LEVEL." Toggle through the selections until you reach the "CENTER CHANNEL". You will be able to use the remote to increase the volume of that channel in .5dB increments.

Centre speaker

The controls I would check are speaker set-up and configuration for a multi-channel sound, be sure to enable center channel YES/NO option and trim center channel level output.

Center Speaker Audio Very Distorted

Love your screen name.

You didn't say what, if anything, preceded the appearance of the problem. There might be a clue.

Can you describe the distortion? Is it excessively bassy? If so, is it happening on all sources?

I'm assuming this is a modern digital receiver that is capable of many soundfield simulations as well as native Dolby Digital, DTS, multi-channel. If so we can use a stereo source and through simulation redirect some of it to the center speaker.

Using one of your receiver's many multi-channel simulation modes, put in a CD or tune an FM station and use it to diagnose the problem during later steps.

If it's only a single source and that source uses individual analog channel RCA cables, swap in another one or temporarily move the Center Channel feed to one of the other channels to see if it's before the receiver (in the source).or inside the receiver.

For multiple sources:

Is your Center speaker defined properly as Large or Small in the receiver's setup menu?The size refers mostly to the bass-handling capacities of all your speakers rather than their physical size. Speakers designated as 'Small' will not be sent much in the way of bass because they can't handle it well. The LFE/subwoofer channel(s) will get all the bass that was intended for them instead.

If you have a Small speaker improperly defined as Large it may be getting bass that it can't handle and that might sound like distortion. Having a Large speaker defiend as Small would result in less bass than expected but otherwise 'clean' sound.

Check the speaker setup in the menu for excessive volume level relative to the others. There is usually a calibration procedure the receiver will use to help you adjust the subjective voume of each speaker using white noise or tones.

Hope this helps.

No Sound From My Center Speaker

on the yamaha amps you can do a speaker test to see if all the channels are working. once that is complete and working you should check the disc to see if it is true digital or dolby pro-logic. normally on the disc menu you can select this.

Sony STR-DE945 5.1 Channels Receiver

Hi, Happened across this forum looking for some remote info. Had a similar problem with my 945...main speaker outputs started to click off & on, no rhyme or reason. Found that the solder joints on the speaker output relays were cold (poor soldering). Actually happend twice, two different relays. Took me a while to find it, reflowed the solder, that solved the problem, over two years ago now. Are you able to dig into the receiver? Do you have a (good) soldering iron and some solder? If not take it to elec. shop and tell them to look for cold joints on the relays.
