Yamaha Natural Sound AV Receiver RX-V620, Troubleshooting sound

We can only get some of the speakers to work at the same time, not all of them. What are we doing wrong? Either the center, left tower & left rear or it the center, right tower & the right rear. Please help!!!



Thanks, Bobbie

Hmmm, this sounds like either a driver issue, or a card/compatibility issue. you might try reverting to old drivers(last resort), making shure you have 4.1 enabled in sound control pannel(do this first), triple checking connections/connectors on both the speakers and the card(remember, you only have 5 speakers, not 8) and if you have the headphone-type phone plug for your speakers, you might try making shure that they are compatible with the jacks on your card, although, I would have to know more about your setup to be completely shure.

Possible solution...

Check the wiring with your speakers. Make sure no bare wires are cross touching or touching the chassie. This could cause the the protection circuits to kick in. It could also be the speakers themselfs. I had a woofer in my B&W that caused my amp to shut off. I think it had to do with the voice coil.

Does it shut off without anything connected? I would disconnect all wires and connections and then turn it on. if it still shuts off then at least we know it's the amp. It could be that it is dirty on the inside. Dust can make connections between circuits on the boards. This could lead to a more serious problem that may, or may not be fixable. Beyond this, I'm not sure unless you start checking all the components on the board.
I would not suggest that unless you have done it before and know what you are doing.

No sound from my Yamaha YST-SW315 subwoofer. When I run the test speakers don't have sound either. Not sure if its the subwoofer or the Yamaha RX-V450 receiver

Feed it with an RCA cable any other audio device you may have (CD, TV, MP3 player, PC) to prove it can or can not woof. It will respond to any audio, not just LFE or subwoofer audio.

No, you don't want to do that. The Ohm output on the amplifier must match the speakers. Run 8 Ohm speakers on 8 Ohm and run all your speakers on the same impedance (Ohms). Your gonna burn your amplifier up if you run different impedances.

I am looking to upgrade my receiver to an audio video receiver that will hook up to a blue ray via HDMI. I want to use my 901's forthe front speakers. Can you recommend a mid priced (<$600) AVR that...

Good day,

Congrats on your new AV receiver. I own an awesome Yamaha mid-priced AV surround sound system with HDMI, BR disc player, and all that stuff. However, I'm old school and use my 901 Series Vs with a Yamaha RX-797 'two-channel' receiver. To get to the point, I have some bad news. Mid-priced (mp) AVRs, or any AVR for that matter, will not work with 901s because the active equalizer (EQ) requires either a 'tape monitor loop' or 'pre-out / main-in' connection to work properly. You've probably been told the 'why they won't work' by now and it is very true--I know from experience. Most of today's AVRs do not include a 'tape monitor loop' or 'pre-out/main-in connection for the EQ connection, thus, killing all hopes of using 901s. I truly love my 901 Series Vs (since 1985 and still kicking) and love true 'stereo' for playing my music. Again, 901s are useless with today's AVR equipment (as I know it). Just don't let your 901s collect dust--they are truly marvels!! Go with a set of good 'standard' speakers for the AVR system and buy yourself a decent stereo receiver or amp for the 901s--that's how I do it!! I've tried Onkyo, Rotel, Sansui, Poineer amps / receivers--all of them. I can tell you this--for the common, working man/woman, nothing, I mean nothing available can match-up with Bose 901s like a Yamaha RX-797 (200W)--not to mention the sound quality-wow!!! And this unit is very reasonably priced for such awesome performance and high quality build. Just know that all is not lost. You can still use your 901s--I cna't listen to music without mine.

My center and surrond sound speakers don't work with just one output from my dvd do I need to purchase an amplifier also?

You need to first check whether your dvd player supports dolby 5.1. If it supports that then you could connect the digital output of your dvd player to a surround receiver such as Yamaha RX-661. You can then connect all the speakers to the output of RX-661 which has 7 inbuilt amplifiers for all the channels. Its a 7 channel receiver and would be useful with DVD-Audio and such that comes in 7 channels. For your requirement any 5 channel receiver will do. Please let me know if you need any more clarifications.

How to connect dvd player to AV reciever

S-Video is a media type that only carries video. Unfortunately the LG unit was designed only to be a self contained surround sound unit. There are only video outputs to the television on this unit. Because of the unit having surround sound capabilities, LG felt that their wasn't a need for audio output. You would need to buy a new DVD player to allow audio from the DVD to your new Yamaha unit. Good Luck!

Wharfedale 8.3

Is it old ? Is it making a rattling noise inside ? Completely lost its sound as in completely stopped sounding like a woofer and has higher frequencys coming out of it or as in no sound at all coming out of it ? I would say it's probably the crossover, perhaps a burnt resistor.

Surround sound from Sky +

To upmix 2-channel sound (such as that in a TV broadcast) into 5.1 sound, press AMP and then SUR. DECODE until "PL II Movie" is displayed. This will give you "cinema-like" surround sound from a 2-channel source.

You can also assign this to one of your "Scenes" by following the procedure for scene assignment on page 26 of your manual.
