SOURCE: no sound

possible problem will be on the speaker relay ckt. as discussed in onkyo's service bulletin.
"When the speaker relays are activated, the collector of Q231 and Q232 should drop to near 0Vdc. Voltage can be monitored at terminal P6830 and P6832. Q231 supports RL6600, RL6602 and RL6603, where as Q232 supports RL6605 for Zone 2 operation. If the DVC at P6830 collector or its follower terminal is HIGH, it should be an open transistor Q231."

SOURCE: yamaha rx v1800 receiever will only play tuner on zone 2 speakers

Solution on page 111 of the owner's manual:

"Connect the source component to the analog audio input jacks of this unit to play back the source in Zone 2 or Zone 3.
This unit does not output the audio signals input at the DIGITAL INPUT and HDMI jacks to the ZONE OUT jacks."

Basically you cannot use an HDMI input if you want to play in Zone 2 or 3. A simple solution is to add an extra audio cable from your PS3 audio output jack to an analog audio input jack on the receiver.

SOURCE: No volume in Zone 2

Get the original Yamaha remote, go to Set menu, manual setup, speaker setup, and look for "extra speaker." it needs to be set to "zone 2." This is off the top of my head, so it should be pretty accurate. Get used to doing this, though, as this amplifier assignment to zone 2 is prone to resetting itself in those Yamahas.

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-550 receiver. Presently, no sound on

were you able to solve this one ? I have the same problem with mine. The only way to clear the lack of sound in one of the speakers is to rotate the input knob !!

SOURCE: Center channel audio distortion and noise

I have similar problem with my Onkyo Tx-SR600. It only happens when it's in surround mode. When switch to Stereo or Direct, the scratchiness go away. Still trying to find a solution to this problem.

Volume knob doesnt work


Ironic that this popped up today. I just worked on my dads Yamaha RX-V663 today. Have you tried to see if it works on the other speaker channels. Not sure how you have yours set up or how many speakers are attached, but my dads wouldn't work on channel A, I guess it burned up. I basically just moved the speakers over to the surround sound and channel B and everything worked as usual. Oh, and turned off channel A

Sound center


Replace center channel speaker with known good one. If no longer scratchy then the voice coil of removed unit is rubbing against the magnet pole and the speaker needs to be replaced. If the replacement speaker also sounds bad, then the amp for the center channel needs repair.

What is the best speaker volume settings for 5.1 system my receiver is Yamaha rx-v430 and room size is 15x20


As this receiver does not have automatic speaker calibration, you need to set the volumes manually. The best is if the left and right speakers are at the same distance from you (then their volumes can be equal). If one speaker is at more distance than the other, the volume must be higher for this speaker.
You can find instruction for volume setting at p. 21 of your receiver manual. There you can also find settings of the speaker mode - that depends on the specific speakers you have. You can define for each of 5 speakers if they are Large/Small/None (on this setting depends where will be the lowest bass tones directed).

I have distortion coming out of my front right channel of my AVR


Yes, sounds like your DSP chip has an issue. Not an inexpensive repair if that's the culpret. Around 400-500 to replace the chip. It's an awesome receiver and worth 300-400 in repair, however, a 3800 or 1800 can be had for 600-800 depending where you look. If you need more help, post a comment and I can help you some more.

I bought the magnavox and all my channels are


Check the converter box. Many have a volume setting that is usually set very low at the factory. On the remote control for the converter check to see if there are volume buttons. If so, change the converter box volume higher, to a level that makes the TV audio level "normal", then use the volume control on the TV for adjustment as you watch. If you set the volume on the converter box too high, you may get some distortion in the audio from your TV. So adjust the converter box to find the proper output from your TV without distortion.

Humming noise from all 5 speakers!


check the type of cable you are using. low end cable lets in a lot of static and distortion, if I were you I would look into some higher end cable.
I find 9 times out of 10 with situations like yours the cabling usually is the culprit.

Yamaha RX-V730 problems


I used to have a set of speakers with 'poly switch' over-current protectors (kind of a 'soft' fuse the size of a small ceramic capacitor) installed in-line with the speaker terminals. (Each speaker in an enclosure needed its own device.) The theory was they appeared as a dead short until their rating was exceeded, going open-circuit to protect the (assumed, more expensive) speaker element. When things 'cooled down' it returned to the former short status and the speakers came alive again. Testing the device with a decent drive signal (it worked), I noticed the sound 'strangled' and only a low-volume, higher-frequency component of the source signal was heard through the speaker. (So I guess it wasn't *totally* open circuit...) After a few seconds of signal removal (and reduction of source volume) the sound came back to normal. Here's my thought: Perhaps your speakers have these devices installed and the devices are operating accordingly. Of course, if the source signal is of a known low-volume, then it sounds like an amplifier component is failing on load. Especially if the speakers behave normally using another amplier. Cheers...
