Denon avr 1507.recently replaced with new set of speakers.sound got dropped.keeping full volume only i can able to hear something.


Are you using normal impedance speakers? If it worked correctly before, and even better if you can connect the old speakers back to verify the receiver works correctly, would give you a clue.
If the new speakers are a difficult load (below 4 ohms) it may overload the amplifier and it will shutdown to protect itself. You need to provide more info to access correctly.

Removing all speakers and using a headset will also validate the operation of the receiver.

Good luck.

10 years and first problem to repair. When you turn on and select DVD or any other selection a very loud cracking noise comes through right speaker only. So loud (with volume tuned off too) that I fear...

I think your receiver is damaged.

Try this.

Mark the speaker wires on the back of the receiver. label the speaker connected to the left channel "Left" and the speaker connected the the right channel "Right"

Also pay attention to the polarity (positive an negative) making some type of marking on your speaker wire so you can reconnect them correctly.

Disconnect both left and right speakers.

Connect the speaker wire that is labeled "Right" to the receiver's left speaker connections only then turn your receiver on.

IF the loud noise comes back, this speaker is damaged. I am guessing that the speaker is fine.

Now connect the speaker that was labeled "Left" to the receiver's right speaker connections and turn the receiver on.

IF the loud noise comes back like it did before but now playing through the "good" speaker there is a problem with your receiver.

If so, your receiver is 10 years old. Isn't it time for an upgrade? Try ebay for good used equipment deals.

I have a JVC Receiver that I'm trying to hook a

"[A] set of Sony Speakers" is meaningless. What model(s)? If they're part of an all-in-one system they may not be suitable for the JVC.

Manuals exist for everything. Read them.

This receiver is designed for standard commonly available 8-ohm (nominal) speakers that connect with common stripped end lamp cord or speaker wire.

The signal select is set to analog but it still turns off when the volume is slightly turned up, can you tell me why?

Sounds like the receiver is defaulting to "protect mode", this indicates that there is an electrical short present in the system, I have found that speakers or speaker wires tend to be the cause often.
Disconnect all speaker wires at the back of the receiver, turn receiver on and raise the volume control and see if the receiver still shuts down, if the receiver doesn't shut off, then one of the speakers or speaker wires are bad, reconnect one speaker at a time, raise volume and see if the speaker you connected causes the receiver to shut down, if not continue connecting the speakers one at a time, testing to see if the receiver shuts down after each speaker connected, when the receiver faults to "protect mode" again after you have connected a speaker then you know that the last speaker you connected is the "blown" or shorted speasker or wire.If the receiver still shuts off after disconnecting all speaker wires, then either one of your sources has a problem(DVD,CDplayer,cass deck,etc.) or the receiver has an internal short that will have to be repaired by a servicer.

Good Luck !

Have a Pioneer VSX-1018 receiver. When I connect

You speakers are out of phase. Check to see if the polarity is correct on the receiver and the speaker. Positive (red) with positive, negative with negative (black). Also check the impedance of the speaker, it should be located on the back of the speaker measured in ohms. Make sure that your receiver matches the impedance of your speaker. You can find this in the settings of the receiver.

Bass speaker not working. Sub woofer connection not producing current to allow Bass speaker to work.Would like to try to connect to 6 channel set up but not sure how that's done since I have the speakers...

make sure speaker voice coil are still good...continuity checks will confirm far as 6 channel hook up, you need to know what the lowest impedance allowed is from your system and then wire up your speakers in series /parallel to come up with a final impedance that will very closely match the systems minimum output impedance

I am trying to connect my Samsung 56" DLP HDTV to my JVC THD50 home theatre system, all the speakers are hooked up correctly but I can't source from the tv to the speakers correctly, I connected a...

On the rear of the receiver you will notice several AUDIO IN connections. Make sure that the AUDIO IN and the receiver's input selector match (for example, if you are connected to AUDIO IN for the VCR section, the input selector on the FRONT of the receiver should also be VCR). Also, make sure that the input selector you are using is set to "Digital Audio" or a digital audio enabled equivalent and NOT analog. Check all connections again to make sure you have not grounded any speaker wire. Check to see if "MUTE" is on TV or Receiver. Try another audio in source just to make sure the speakers are connected properly. If that works, you can pretty much decide that it's either the input selection is wrong or the audio source is not set to digital 9also check to see if PCM is enabled and try setting to "AUTO" if you have that function. If you have option on receiver for speakers A and B, make sure selection matches your wiring.

What then?

If you have an ohmmeter, you can verify the house wiring. Disconnect all the speakers from the amplifier. Disconnect the speaker wires from the speakers. Make sure none of the ends touch.

Connect the ohmmeter across each set of speaker wires. You should read an open circuit across each set of speaker wires. Basically if the meter gives you any reading, there is a fault somewhere on the line.

You could do the same test with the speaker wires connected to the speakers (but still not connected to the amplifier). You should see a reading greater than 4 ohms (and most likely less than 8 ohms) on each set of speaker wires. If you see a reading of 0 or 1 ohm on one set of wires, consider this suspect.

You mentioned earlier that you had 3 rear speakers each of 8 ohms... are they connected to one set of speaker wires at the amp? This would be an equivalent impedance of 2.7 ohms, and with loud volume, might be overheating a set of amp chips causing it to go into protect mode.

Let me know what you find.
