Problem with sp cable (yamaha)

My Yamaha HTR-6230 Surround Sound system shuts off at random times. Then, a message pops up that says "Check SP Cable". I've checked all the cables, but the problem continues. I'm not a huge technology guy, so I don't exactly know which cable is the SP Cable. So, if someone.. and please tell me how to reset my yamaha htr-6230

The speaker cables are the ones that clamp or tighen down on the back of the reciever. All the spkr wires have to have the positive and negative leads correct. Also not aven one little strand of wire can be touching another conductor or you will have this problem. Make sure all leads are correctly ran and hooked up positive to positive and negative to negative from the back of the reciever all the way to the speakers. This should solv your problem.

As per HTR-6230 specifications (http://www.yamaha.com/yec/products/productdetail.html?CNTID=5028494&CTID=5000400&ATRID=1020&DETYP=ATTRIBUTE) the HDMI function is only "audio-passthru", which means your receiver is not able to get the audio from HDMI cable, it can only pass it forward to TV. You would need a receiver with "HDMI switch" to be able to listen to audio via HDMI cable. You can find such receiver by looking if it supports TrueHD audio (which can be transferred ONLY via HDMI cable).

With your current receiver, you can connect it to the Blue-ray player via Optical SPDIF cable. I have checked the specs and both receiver and BD player supports optical connection.

Use HDMI because they combine picture and sound in one convenient cable. You can buy the cheapy ones because they work the same as the pricey ones with no degradation in sound quality or picture.

Want to use all 5 speakers on surround sound yamaha htr-6230 on tv programs. how set up?


Depends on the audio source for your TV sound. If it's a digital cable box, run a coaxial or optical cable from it to an available digital input, assign it as "TV" and you're done; or if the cable box has 5.1 analog outputs, usethose to the Multi Ch imputs.

If your TV sound source is only RCA cables (stereo) you're stuck with DSP surround modes.

Probably the speakers are not wired correctly. Check this by turning on the receiver without speakers connected. If the message is gone, issue was in the connection of speakers. Check that you have not short-wired the + and -.

Yamaha 5.1 says Check SP Cable and shuts down - has been fine.


It has nothing to do with the input you choose. A speaker wire is shorted. Disconnect each one in turn and try it. The last one disconnected before it stops failing is the one.

My Yamaha HTR-6050 shuts off at random times and says "Check SP Cable"


That is a check the speaker wire error, caused by a short or perceived short. If you look at the back of the receiver you may see 1 strand of the wire loose, they are very hard to see sometimes. You may use banana plugs as it is painful to get everything hooked up without a few loose strands.

If there is still the issue check your speaker connections for the same issue. If they are in ceiling/wall speakers disconnect them all then plug them in one at a time to narrow it down.

If the issue persists perhaps one of your speaker wires has a short somewhere, could be a misplaced drywall screw from hanging a picture, or a carpet tack strip, or a pet deciding it was a nice chew toy.

If you are completely sure it is none of those then I would say it is a bad speaker or receiver. Try changing in and out known good speakers/receivers if you have access to them to see which one it is.

Good luck

"Check Speaker Wire" error on my Yamaha Receiver


found the source of the problem with "Check SP Wires"! to solve it is necessary to check each speaker connected to the device Yamaha on the rear panel (red and black) using the device for determining the number of ohms, which shall not be less than 4 ohms, in large passive speakers experienced in Amfitone AU-027, the result showed that left at 0.45 (7) ohms, and the right-hand column, as such, no.
The successful test ... and good music!
