Question about Yamaha HTR-6030 Receiver

1 Answer

Front Speakers stopped working

I have had this Surround Sound System for about 6 months and love the sound. Last night I went to turn it off and pushed a "wrong button" and now the front speakers no longer work. The back, center and sub-woofer speakers are fine. I know it's a matter of just putting it back the way it was but I have been trying for quite awhile now and starting to pull out my hair....HELLP!!

Turn on your video and start something playing, press the speakers button repeatedly until the sound comes back. this should bring back your front speakers, if it doesn't, double check your speaker connections and sound field program.

the speakers button should cycle through all available front speaker options.

    also check to make sure the mute is not active, in some cases this mutes only the front speakers... don't ask me why, i have no idea, but i have seen it happen on two of these systems in the past..

    another thing to check is the amp buttn, press it and check the settings of your front l and front r.

    in sound field, check the settings for stereo and for enhancer, make sure they are set to 5 channel.

    also, if all else fails, press the "straight button" and make sure you have straight mode (raw mode) deactivated or activated depending on your preference..

    make sure to check your input source and input jack source

    under speaker settings make sure "SUR.LR" is not set to none

    this is pretty much everything that should or could be causing your problem, at least everythingi can think of right now

    hope it helps,

In a surround sound system, the correct way to listen to music is in stereo mode which will play out of your left and right channels and your subwoofer. When viewing a movie with surround sound, then you should use your rear speakers. The key element to remember is that rear speakers are only intended to play your sound effects, and will not play full range audio. Thats what your fronts and center are for. If you simply want to override this, than you will need to select the direct sound field on your receiver and than it will send full range audio to all speakers connected. Most likely, its not going to sound that good. If you dont know what each sound field does, here is a list and function of the most commonly used ones.
Stereo-Front Left and Right speakers including subwoofer
Dolby Digital or PLII Movie-these are the bost options for your surround sound
Direct-All speakers connected get full range signal
Good Luck

The broadcaster of the TV station has to tell you they are transmitting surround sound - sometimes they are just transmitting stereo. Also, the media as in CD's and DVD movies must have surround sound embedded or recorded on it to allow surround sound.

Crackling and popping sounds in surround sound speakers

Could be your head unit or the connection to the speaker may be bad. Also if the wire to the speakers in your ceiling is bare and touching any ground it would interfere. Start by checking connections by playing something and messing with wires. Listen for a difference. Next check by putting the wires that power those speakers in a known working output and listen for different quality

No sound back two speakers

After using the method of last resort (RTFM) I discovered that Yamaha 7.1 amps assign an order of priority to the speakers. The surround speakers have higher priority than the surround-back speakers. I had connected the rear speakers (in a 5.1 configuration) to the surround-back speaker terminals and since nothing was connected to the surround terminals the E-6 error happed on auto-setup.

I eventually fixed this by connecting the rear speakers to the Surround L/R terminals and then, via the manual setup menu, set rear surround = NONE. This causes the amp to route the rear-surround signals to the Surround L/R terminals. The auto-configure then completed successfully.
