Poor sound when switching to both a&b speakers

I have a sony STR-D911 receiver and when I switch the sound settings from using just one speaker (a or b) the quality of sound and loudness drops significantly. I have it set to "dance" on the sound field. I have DBFB on. Any help works thank you!

Check your speaker polarity. Make sure the plus and minus of all 4 speakers are the same, otherwise they will cancel its other out.

Sony STR-DG710 center speaker makes no sound. Connections are good.


Sometimes these units have the ability to switch the speaker off and on. Look up the speaker settings in the manual.
As each channel in the unit will be separately driven the power amp for the center channel could have failed, but I think it's unlikely unless you have had problems with the sound on it before, or connected it wrongly causing a fault.

Could be an open resistor in the amp for that channel. Might have to have a pro look at it.

No sound out of left speaker


did the left channel work when u switched speakers, if so then the left speaker or wiring is a fault.if not then the output circuits on the amp are blown or the fuse is blown some amps have internal fuses in the output to protect the output transistors. unplug the power cord and take the cover off, look to see if u can find any fuses and check these for continuity u can hold these up to the light and u should see a fine filiment in one piece and not broken. these fuses sometimes blow just from age and use at high volume like a regular light bulb.If the fuse is blown replace with the same value else the output transistors will need to be replaced most likley along with the drivers.

No sound from rear speakers during test tone usng Sony STR-DE475


I had this problem last night.

To solve it, you can reset the amp by:

1) Put the receiver on stand-by
2) Hold down "MODE" button and press on button
3) "S.F. CLR" appears in the display and surround is back on.


Good luck
