Question about Sony STR-DE545 Receiver

Open Question

No Sound from Center Speaker output of my receiver

The output on my center speaker is not working. There is a little crackling that but not real sound.

I did swap speakers to ensure that it was not a blown speaker or wire and the center speaker worked when connected the the right speaker connection and the right speaker did not work when connected to the center speaker connection.

I also put a OHMS meter across the speaker poles and I get continuity. If I hook the speaker up at the same time I get sound from the center speaker.

Any ideas?

SOURCE: No center speaker sound on my Sony STR-DA5200ES receiver

It sounds like a set-up problem. If the receiver was in front of me I could figure it out.

SOURCE: Sony HT 6500 receiver...center speaker jack

try to spray contact cleaner into the speaker port itself.. Powered off of course.. let it dry and try again.. this will clean any connectivity issues due to bad contacts.. as far as replacing jacks.. try the suspected "bad" speaker and wiring in another port.. if it works then the speaker and wiring is good and you have to check actual jack in which you were asking and back to auto amplifier circuit or transistors.

Why does only center channel speaker work?


Try running a sound test. You should have a test mode that will play a sound through each speaker to see if you have them hooked up correctly. If you still only hear it from the center, unhook the center and connect it to another speaker output, say right front. Run the test again. If you hear something from that center speaker, its the speakers. If not, try each speaker output to make sure the results are the same. If so, you may have an internal board problem.
Good Luck!

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).

Can you say explicitly that the Center Channel speaker is defined as something other than NONE?

And how does dialog sound? If it sounds ok you're routing it to the front speakers. This is from the manual...

"For ideal Surround effects, all speakers should be installed. If a
center speaker or subwoofer is not connected, the sound from the unused channel is properly distributed to the connected speakers in order to produce the best Surround sound possible."

No sound output from Center and Surround speakers


the only time the center and surround speakers put out sound is when it has a surround sound source such as a dvd etc. and only certain sounds come from them as well.

No human sounds when playing dvds.


sound like the center channel is out
either bad connection at speaker or receiver is not putting out sound on center. A quick swap of speakers at receiver end will tell you if it is the latter

Centre speaker


The controls I would check are speaker set-up and configuration for a multi-channel sound, be sure to enable center channel YES/NO option and trim center channel level output.

Center channel


Back to basic to advance:
Be sure you have all speakers connected correctly behind the receiver.If you center channel don't have any sound,it could be 7 different issues,but you could try to just hook up your center channel to either the right or the left speaker output to be sure the center channel speaker does work.
Check your the speaker wiring tip(if there is any),i will use just the speaker wire go straight to the center speaker output,go to the receiver to change it to pro-logic or dolby digital and of course you should put in a dvd in the dvd player to have a good quality movie to play the dialogue through the center channel for you test.
If you have tried the above step and still have no sound,you might consider hiring a troubleshooting master to take care of your issue.
Let me know what you need!
