Problem with 'central' speaker output

Hi, i have had my Sony STR-DE545  for quite a while now, and just recently the central speakers have been sounding a bit funny!  Today, there is no sound from them atall!  I have tried connecting them to other outputs and they work fine, but when connecting to the central output....nothing.  Any ideas?!

Took apart my reciever and found that the blue relays in back in the middle are starting to malfunction. I tapped on them and they clicked. When I tapped the right one, i got the sound back in my center speaker.

Str-de545 sony not putting out sound to rear speakers

From page 46 (Troubleshooting)-

No sound or only a very low-level sound is heard from the rear speakers.

>>> Make sure the sound field function is on (press SOUND FIELD - MODE).

>>> Select a sound field containing the word "cinema" or "virtual" (see pages 28-30).

>>> Adjust the speaker volume (see page 19).

>>> Make sure the rear speaker size parameter is set to either SMALL or LARGE (see page 17).

Make sure the subwoofer is set to On in the setup menu. Should be able to access this setting from the front panel, using the click wheel and the left/right buttons above the wheel. Push the setup button to get to the right menu. Set subwoofer to 'on' and speaker size to 'small'. This receiver has a fixed crossover, so make sure to turn the crossover setting on the subwoofer to the maximum setting (highest frequency) to ensure no signal is lost.

Most likely it's due to bad solder for the Blue Relays.It can be fixed by re-soldering.

You should have access to receiver's format from remote or front panel. If the unit was moved around a lot and for a long period, the micro-processor may have locked due to ambient static electricity. Try unplugging unit for seversl hours, then re-try
