I have a sony str de-475 amplifier and the centre speaker stops working after about a minute. leave amp powered down for a while and it works again but only for about a minute


Try replacing the center speaker with one of the left or right speaker and run it for sometime ( do not connect the center speaker to any other channel ). If the system does not cut off the center speaker connection this way indicates a short in your center speaker.
But with the L/R speaker if the system still stops working you have a hardware problem and will need professional help to fix. 5.1 amps are complicated and difficult to access even for an experienced technician.

We can't hear spoken audio on our recent dvds (movies), only the music. Some of the the older movies are fine.


Your center channel speaker is not working. In modern 5.1 movies dialogue only comes from the center channel. Older movies were stereo/mono so the dialogue would come from both the front speakers.
See if the speaker wires are intact and not loose. After that to confirm if the speaker is OK or defective exchange the center speaker with one of the working ones.If the center speaker does not produce sound, you will have to replace it. But if it works, that would mean that your center channel amplifier is not working & for that you will need professional help.
CHECK CABLES FIRST FOR LOOSE CONTACTS.

Sony STR-DH510 Multi-channel AV receiver connected to cambridge soundworks ensemble IV w/ passive subwoofer: no sound from center channel during viewing, or during speaker level test- all other speakers...


The STR directs sound to the center as instructed by its speaker setup. You say the center does not work on calibration. Is it defined?

Prove another speaker does or does not work on the center output. Then we'll know if it's the receiver or the speaker ensemble that has the problem.

Have you checked the manual for this "
There is no sound, or only a very low-level sound is heard from the center/ surround. "?

With what signal did you try? Maybe your signal source (DVD/TV or radio) didn't contain any sounds for the center channel.
Go to the Setup menu, Speaker setup / Manual setup and find there item called "Test tone". It will output a test tone to each speaker individually (you will see on LCD which speaker is being tested at each moment). If you will hear a sound from the center now, there is no issue and center is working fine, just your source didn't contain any sound for the center.

If it doesn't work, then either you have faulty cable, faulty speaker or faulty center output of the receiver.
- Try connecting the center speaker to different output of receiver (this will test if speaker is OK).
- Try connecting working LEFT speaker to left output with CENTER cable (this will test if cable is OK).
- Try connecting working LEFT speaker with working cable to the CENTER output (this will test the output of receiver if OK - but use the Test Tone from Setup).

Center channel stoped working on onkyo Dr-S2.2


Have you re-run the speaker definition and level steps? I can't find the manual. Perhaps you could flip a few pages in the Troubleshooting Section.

Center speaker will not work


If you had the Speakers Set to A (not B) and no headphones connected when you pressed the TEST TONE button on the Onkyo HT-R540 (also known as the HTS-790) remote, and you had no sound from the Center Speaker then try the following steps. 1) Check the Center Speaker wiring at both ends under a bright light and make sure that there is not a strand of wire touching the Receiver Chassis or another speaker post. Check both + and - . If that looks okay, 2) unscrew the Center Speaker Post connections on the Receiver and verify that the bare stripped wire is making contact. Often, the insulation is too far into the connector. When screwed down, the wire's insulation is crushed and keeps the bare wire from making contact. If this looks okay and the unit is under Warranty, your last test is to: 3) temporarily swap the wires from the Center Speaker with the Right Front Speaker. Turn the volume down low and try the TEST TONE button again. If you now hear sound from the Center Speaker box itself and none from the Right Speaker box, then the Receiver is the problem. If you still do not hear sound from the Center Speaker box, then the Center speaker itself is defective.
