When the unit is first turned on, It seems to work fine, then after a few minutes, the sound will move from the center channel to the left speaker and stay there. Then random loud pops will sound through various speakers. After the pops sound for a while then the Receiver will turn itself off. The system is setup using HDMI exclusively. This happens with Dish network HD receiver, and Dennon HD DVD player. There are no pops if you let the receiver run with the volume turned off completely, and the receiver will not turnoff either. Could it be that the HDMIdatastream from the DVD player and HD receiver is getting corrupt and causing the problem? Any you help you can offer would be greatly appreciated!
Same issue with my AVR-589...2-15 minutes after sound is playing (via TV or DVD). I checked all wires and speakers. Even reconfigured to audio only (analog) coming in, same issue. Put my old Denon receiver in and the problem disappears...possible overheating issue with this new unit?

Yes, electronic components fail with time: switches, especially capacitors, there can be dust or corrosion acting upon connections; really a multitude of age related problems CAN occur. (Not necessarily but can.) The problem becomes cost vs. benefit for repairing and another unit of that age is probably an inexpensive fix.
Hi, here is a procedure to discover the source of the problem. No sound from the left front channel can have several sources other than the left front channel itself. Let's assume, for just now, that the speaker is good and the cable to it is good. Here is a testing sequence to follow: 1 If you have a CD player connected to it. Put a CD in and put it into play mode. 2 reverse the connectors from the CD player to the receiver. See if the sound moves to the left speaker and stops on the right speaker. Or if it plays fine. 3 If the sound reverses channels, That cable is bad. Replace it 4 If the sound is still not coming from the left channel. Check the connections and cables to the speaker. MAKE SURE THERE ARE NO STRANDS OF WIRE TOUCHING THE CHASSIS OR SHORTING TO THE OTHER SPEAKER WIRE. 5 If there were. Correct it. Shut down the receiver and then after a few minutes turn it back on. 6 If it still does not work. check to see if a tiny amount of sound is coming from the left speaker. If so, turn the music up and see if it pops back on . If that is the case there is a failed resister on the circuit board that is arcing when you turn up the volume. That being the case, it is time to drop off the receiver to be repaired in the service center. Hope this helps, Best, Mark
With what signal did you try? Maybe your signal source (DVD/TV or radio) didn't contain any sounds for the center channel. Go to the Setup menu, Speaker setup / Manual setup and find there item called "Test tone". It will output a test tone to each speaker individually (you will see on LCD which speaker is being tested at each moment). If you will hear a sound from the center now, there is no issue and center is working fine, just your source didn't contain any sound for the center.
If it doesn't work, then either you have faulty cable, faulty speaker or faulty center output of the receiver. - Try connecting the center speaker to different output of receiver (this will test if speaker is OK). - Try connecting working LEFT speaker to left output with CENTER cable (this will test if cable is OK). - Try connecting working LEFT speaker with working cable to the CENTER output (this will test the output of receiver if OK - but use the Test Tone from Setup).
Its not working correctly I have a few different types of center channels and they all have equal sound no matter how many speakers are in them. Connection in speaker box is bad or you may have a blown speaker
if it is not working then there is another serious problem , and it could be the amp IC or the volume IC but tests will need to be done to determine what is causing the failure , but it does sound like amp IC as a suspect since the rear were not even working , did the volume seem different when turning it up or down before the center quit or after the center quit?
If all others had been fine before this problem arose, and you are sure that you haven't changed anything in your amplifier's channel selection menus, the problem might be deeper to solve! Try these out;
1-If the amplifier has a test menu to check out all channels plugged in, activate it. You must be able to get sound, which is like rustle, from each speaker.
2- Check your plugs, cables etc. be sure that there isn't any short circuit
3- Grab your amplifier's remote control and find the "channel selection menu" that allows you to increase and decrease volume levels for each speaker independently.
