Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a Sony DA555ES receiver. Even if all I have hooked up is two speakers (left and right channel), it only sends sound to one of them (whichever is hooked up as left). If I switch, then the other speaker works. I took it to a Sony certified repair shop, they said they fixed it (two separate times). The 2nd time they said they replaced the entire main board. I swear it appeared to be working in their shop. When I got it home, same problem. (I'm just using FM to test sound now so as to isolate the problem and have as little hooked up as possible.) Also, I've tried it with 4 ohm speakers, 8 ohm speakers, and 16 ohm speakers. Same problem, regardless of which set. I've also used two different sets of speaker wires. Finally, the only other thing that seems slightly strange is that it won't work if I put the receiver on the 4 ohm setting (only the 8 ohm setting). Also, even in the repair shop, when I had the guy hook up two sets of speakers and set it to play A and B, it stopped working after 3-7 seconds (sound fading out to nothing). Please help.

    THe Receiver was connected for two days to 6 Ohm Speakers while the 4-8 Ohm switch on the back of the receiver was set to 8 Ohm.
    It was used twice, for about 5 hours total. then, the next day, the sound was low and suddenly became loud, as i had the volume setting at about 40%. I just bought this unit
    and connected a pair of speakers to test it.
    Before buying, i checked that all, front, center and rear speakers had sound and it was right.

Hello I have another question but this is containing my back up surround sound receiver til I can find a Sony receiver that I like. Ok this receiver is a AV receiver model ht-r420 onkyo surround sound...


Subwoofer sockets
The HTR-420 has only a single subwoofer output. It is the socket on the lower left corner. The other subwoofer socket is part of the multi-channel input.

Because of the age of the 420, it comes from a time when optical and coax connections were not so common and DVD players had 6x phono/RCA sockets to send out the surround signal in analogue format. The multichannel input is for sending a signal in to the amp, and not for getting a signal out. That's why the sub doesn't get a signal from that socket. Use the proper subwoofer out. That's what it is there for.

Speakers A+B
The 420 was designed to run Speakers A+B together if required. However, you must observe the minimum impedance loading if you connect up two sets of front speakers and run them simultaneously.

The minimum Impedance for each set of front speakers is 8 Ohms. If you're recycling old surround speakers from a Home-Theater-in-a-Box system, or the speakers have no labels for impedance on the backs then you can be fairly sure they are not 8 Ohm. That could be the problem.

Str-gx800es sony receiver problem- right channel speaker sound is 'static', low and distorted. I have checked checked all speaker and output/input source cable connections with no luck. All left channel...


If you have checked the speakers and wiring, the right channel has a audio driver or output problem, which explains the low volume, static, and distortion. A service technician will be required to fix the receiver so it will balance the left side.

1 Answer

No sound from front left channel


Try swapping the connectors for front-left and front-right (just swap right at the back of the amp)

After the swap, does the front-left speaker work, and now the front-right is dead? If so, then it's a problem in the amp.
If not, then the problem is in the wiring and/or the front-left speaker itself.

Post back here with your findings, and we'll troubleshoot whichever part of the system is broken.

Can you please update this with your connections. I assume that you are connecting the turntables to the mixer? Verify that the mixer is set to send out true stereo. What mixer are you using?
Note that most mixers "pan" all of the channels to the center sending out mono to the left and right. In most live shows, it makes no sense to send out true stereo. The left and right are for the speaker chains. In order to get true stereo out of the mixer, you wil need to pan the input channel for the left side all the way to the left and the input for the right channel to the right.

The 'Subwoofer' output on your receiver is used to connect to a powered subwoofer with a built in amplifier. Your KLH speakers use what is called a 'passive' subwoofer, it gets its power from the receiver and then passes the higher frequencies to the left and right front speakers after taking out the low frequencies for the subwoofer. A speaker system with a passive subwoofer is good for casual listening, but a powered subwoofer is required for really hearing low frequencies and rumble in movies. The KLH speakers you have were highly rated in their time for their price. The four satellite speakers and center channel speaker have very good sound compared to the little 'midget' surround sound speakers most people buy today.

Here's how you hook them up:

- The left and right front channels from your receiver terminals should go to the terminals on the subwoofer marked 'From Amplifier'
- Your left and right front speakers are then connected to the subwoofer terminals marked 'To Speakers', they do not connect directly to your receiver.
- Your center speaker is connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Center'
- Your rear speakers are connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Surround'

That should get you up and running. If the bass isn't good enough with the passive subwoofer, you can get a decent powered subwoofer like the Velodyne VX-10 for about $150 and 'kick it up a notch'. Good luck and enjoy....

Both left and right speakers play audio for right speaker


I think you mean the left channel is out but when you use test tone, the sound comes from left and right channels through the right channel speaker. If this is case, the switching IC is malfuncting. Unit needs service

Distorted sound on all right channel inputs


yep but if your not a tech you should take this easy repair to a pro. Your problem is an open emitter resitor and happens when the units over driven or a speaker is bad for a while while it was working. if your a tech then check all of the emmitter resistors. also it could be a bad output device. Good Luck
