Yamaha RX-V670 center channel failure

Center speaker channel no longer works. Is this problem worth the cost of repair. Unit has been a reliable performer, but I am not willing to pay half the cost of a replacement to fix it.

Own a Yamaha DSP-A1000. Center channel "died" this week. Everything had been working for years. Suddenly, the center channel stopped working (very obvious in DSP fields for Home Theater). Any...

If you run through the setup and certify it knows about the center channel first, then test it with tiones, then maybe swap the center speaker with another one you might come to an answer.

DC Offsets on output - protection don't allowd to switch on

you don't want to do this( bypass the protection0
that d.c. output will burn the coils in your speakers with out making a sound!! you have a biasing problem
or like you said a d.c. offset problem it is best to work on this problem with out a load on the amp, this will allow you to trace back where the trouble is starting at. caps will cause this sort of problem but leaky transistors can also do this, even diodes.
this will require an experienced trouble-shooter.

Carver Sound Problems

your going to need this place to download the remedy's for your system

if it is not working then there is another serious problem , and it could be the amp IC or the volume IC but tests will need to be done to determine what is causing the failure , but it does sound like amp IC as a suspect since the rear were not even working , did the volume seem different when turning it up or down before the center quit or after the center quit?

Center channel will not work unless unit is set for Surround or Pro Logic. Make sure center channel's volume is up

No center main volume

Make shure your initial setup on the amp is for center as an active speaker,then to check volume on center at zero. Possible to check speaker and wires for open or short.BIGRED
