Re: Rear Speakers

Took apart the boards and resoldered the Blue Relays. Now it seems to be ok. It looks like due to bad solder, the relay trips when the board warms up. Taking apart was relatively easy, several pluggable connections and many screws to deal with. I took a digital picture before pulling apart, so as to remember the connections. Also, had to remove the smaller boards to get to the big board at the bottom. The challenge is to solder, must be extremely careful to not drop solder on the board.

I can not hear speaker called "LS". I've run new speaker wires with no results. Is it time for a new receiver?

Well if you can hear RS then take it to your local electronics repair store if warranty has expired. If you cant hear RS aswell then you might not have the right number of speaker's or speakers setup right. if you have 7.1 then you will have LS and RS speakers if it is 5.1 setup then then rear speaks have an option on most to be a rear (behind speakers) or rear (side speakers

Can't hear my speakers, but i can hear through my headphones

check the speaker connections, if you have a receiver that has front and rear,, switch the speakers to rear to make sure the speakers themselves are working correctly, by allowing the headphones to produce sound its letting you know the outputs for the receiver itself are good , also,, be sure that the speaker selection switch is ON and that its set for the correct speaker selection. (re front or rear or both) and that Mute isn't on

I have a yamaha RX-V 2500 receiver that won't turn on.The front display stated to check the speakers, now the unit won't turn on at all you here is a clicking sound coming from the left rear of the unit....

Have you checked the speaker connections as requested? How about disconnecting all speakers and seeing what happens? If it works, you have a shorted speaker or wire.

Zone 2 problem

I know this is old and im sure you have it solved by now, but it might be a good idea to check the amp setting of Zone 2. Is it switched to Internal or external? I remember something strange about this amp in that when you change from using the rear surrounds and go to use them in Zone 2, it resets the amp setting or something like that. Hope it helps if you still need it.

Hello, you must first tested with a voltmeter in DC entrance if you have a DC voltage on all the terminal outlet speaker, normally you must obtain 0Vdc+/-50mV on each out speaker with control volume to minimum, you can stay or remove the speakers during this test.

Rear Surround speakers

Best thing to do is to put the unit in 5 channel or 7 channel mode. That will send left ch information to the front left and rear left speakers ( both will get the same information). Ditto with the right channel. The center channel will get centre channel information.

If all the speakers work, go out and rent TOP GUN. ( yes its old), BUT there are a few extreme scenes , one of which is the elevator scene, where the camera changes perspective and suddenly you hear the elevator doors close BEHIND you through only the surround speakers ( have the unit in surround mode....NOT 5 or 7 ch mode ). If this works ok, then you have no problems.

Remember, surround sound only produces information in the rear channels when the information is there. To check out the digital and DTS decoders, get an action flick. If you can, get a remote too, because that will unlock many features about the receiver that you cant get to with the front panel controls. Also go to yamaha and download the owners manual ( its free !!).....that should get you going.....

best of luck...

Back speaker sound

Why would you only hook up one speaker for the rear channel? in 7 channel stereo, all speakers have 100% signal sent to them as "stereo" in Dolby digital, rear speakers are for "effects" not dialog. like a plane flying past you or a car driving by, that's when you hear a rear speaker. It also needs to be placed behind you, not next to you or in front of you. Unless you are using zone 2 & 3 the receiver's surround back will work. if you only have left,right,center,sub & rear; the rear speakers should go to surround speakers not surround back. If you still have questions, post a comment and I can explain further. Hope this helps
