    I have the same problem - is there a fuse inside that I can replace? SF Initialize did nothing. Test tones won't play through rear channels

The system WAS working fine. After I moved I installed the system again now the front speakers are not working. I'm sure it's not the cable or the speakers (if i connect in example: the left rear...


The system would have hung up. Please remove the power and leave the set aside for over 6 hours so that the processor will reset if there was any error that have crept into while it was powered . Also remove and reset all the speakers, if possible with an individual test on each- use a 1.5 V AA cell-.
The amplifer can also be reset if there is a note in your manual.

Dear sir,my surround amp rear speakers are not working.model is kr-v5580.other functions are OK..Pl's help


1st try a test tone to the rear speakers. If you can not get a test tone check the connections again.. once you get a test tone, use the "mode" button on your remote to cycle through the surround modes and make sure you are in a surround mode rather than a stereo mode.

No sound from rear speakers during test tone usng Sony STR-DE475


I had this problem last night.

To solve it, you can reset the amp by:

1) Put the receiver on stand-by
2) Hold down "MODE" button and press on button
3) "S.F. CLR" appears in the display and surround is back on.


Good luck

Samsung ht-z310 home cinema no sound rear speakers


I seen the same thing when I first opened mine except my "center" speaker wan't working. It had to do with the "Mode" it was in. The Mode button at the botoom of the remote changes the speaker configuration.

There is also an option in the setup that allows you to turn on/off speakers for the system, all of mine were either Present or Small which enables them to work.

Cant connect rear speakers


Hey there Subaquakid, the nature of surround systems is to identify separate extra channels of information and send them to the right address, being the selected speaker. In order for the rear speakers to work they need to be sent a signal. The media which you are using may not have the rear channel encoded. therefore the rear speakers have nothing to announce. Please ensure your source cd has the suround feature encoded. Hope this helps. Good Luck!
