Run the speaker test mode :
While running the speaker test tone to balance your speakers, you cannot adjust the balance of the Main speakers independently. The speaker test allows you to balance the sound (dB) levels of the Center speaker, Rear Left, Rear Right speakers to match the level of the main speakers. So, the first thing you do is press the [TEST] button on the remote. Next, adjust the [MASTER VOLUME CONTROL] until you can adequately hear the level from the main left and right speakers. Then, as the tone travels clockwise to each speaker, listen carefully from your main seating position in the room to determine which speakers (if any) need to be adjusted in level (either up or down) in order to balanced the sound to the main speakers output. Then adjust the Center, Rear Left or Rear Right speakers accordingly until the proper balance of level is attained. If you would like to change the level between the mains, you can use the [BALANCE CONTROL] either located on the front panel of the receiver or in the Set-Menu. A common challenge people have is that they try to adjust the main speakers to match the center or rear levels. If your center speaker is louder than your mains, You cannot adjust the main level up, you need to adjust the center speaker level down. All speakers need to be adjusted to match the main level.

Hit the button "speakers/a/b/off" on the left hand side of the front panel until it shows that "speakers b" are turned on.

First of all you should never indicate speakers as Large unless they can produce below 20Hz (which is very low), otherwise always set your speakers to Small.
Second, did you also indicate in teh setupmenu that you have a subwoofer? Because if all speakers are set to Large some receivers will omit a subwoofer because Large indicates the speakers can reproduce all sounds even below 20Hz.
So walk through your setup menu, say YES when the sub (SFW) is asked for and that should do the trick.

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

SOURCE: Speaker output
Yes, there are relay type switches associated with those outputs. Your RX-V1 is not dying.
Just plug a pin plug in and out of the dead channel to bump the switch. You will hear the speaker
come on. If it doesn't come on,do the plug jack in an out of the pre out again. It will come on.
You can use the test tone to check all channels and rebalance volume levels. You are making the
pre out connect to its power amp. It seems the problem got better when activating those switches. Most likely a cleaning issue. You can also jump the mains and center, and there is also
a modification to jump all channels. I bought my RX-V1 very cheap because of this and love it.
Of course outboard power amp would solve all, but getting this reciever to connect to it's own
power amp has been thrilling as far as bang for the buck. I do use the front effects also, and like
them. It may seem like a pain, but it is worth it to get those channels going.
