Sorround Back Speakers not giving proper output

I recently purchased a new AVR1507 in Kuwait. When I set the system for auto set up, all speakers are detected except Sorround Back Left and Right which are not producing proper test tone instead with distorted noise. I called the service people and they said I dont have proper DVD player which doesnt produce 5.1 output. I replied them, the problem is, the system is not detecting the speakers independent of my DVD player, but they disagreed. Am I correct in my point?? can anyone guide me.

Dear Mittal,
Thanks for your input. The service people diagnosed and said its a system fault. The problem has been fixed by changing the system.

Thanks once again.

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.

Front speakers won't work simultaneously with the rest of my 5.1 system

This is an either-or situation. As your manual explains, SP-A is one set of speakers and SP-B is another separate set. Your Yamaha receiver should have an SP-A + SP-B setting but given the way your speakers are currently configured it's anybody's guess as to what the result will be.

I recently purchased a new Denon AVR-391 receiver and am having a problem hooking up my subwoofer. It seems that the Denon has a pre-out RCA looking output and my subwoofer uses conventional speaker wire. ...

Your sub-woofer apparently does not have an amplifier built into it. This type requires you to use your front left and front right speaker output to got through it to your regular speakers. It is called a passive sub-woofer for that reason.
To set it up, Connect your front speakers to the "output" of the sub. It should say "to speakers" on it.
Then connect the Speaker Outputs for the left front and right front on your Denon AVR-391 directly to the Sub. It should say on the back of the Sub "to amplifier".
Here is some theory you should know, if you don't already know it, that will help you get a satisfactory result in setting up this system.
There is a condition on setting up all speakers and subs that not everyone know. It's call "phase alignment". Phase alignment (A Good Thing) refers to all of the speakers in a system moving in the same direction (in and out) at the same instant in time. This gives you much clearer sound and better response from your sub-woofer.
Phase Cancellation (a bad thing) is when some of the speakers are moving out and other moving in during the very same instant in time. It causes problems in sound.
Here is how to handle it:
On the back of the receiver the speaker terminal outputs are colored Red and Black. Black is considered negative and Red is considered positive. On the back of the Sub woofer and on the speakers the same colors apply. MAKE SURE THAT ALL OF THE CONNECTIONS GO BLACK TO BLACK AND RED TO RED WHEN CONNECTING UP THE SPEAKER WIRES.
The system will work either way. But you will have severe bass loss if the woofer wiring is out of phase because of phase cancellation.
Hope this helps,
Best Regards,

"Phase Cancellation"

I HAVE A SONY RECIEVER STR-DH700, I get no sound

make sure the FM antenna is connected and in a good place then check to see if the A-B speaker selector is selected properly.check to see that the sound field is set properly, My 800 allows for several different options and if your speaker wires are reversed or not in the correct position front left at front left etc it will not send the signal to those speakers. try using the TEST TONE feature if you have one it will send a signal to each speaker in sequence (LF< C< RF<in order) it will go all the way around to see if they are connected properly, that way you can tell if they are connected at all or in the wrong spot on the back interface. I dont know if that is what you meant by AUTO CAL, but that is a seperate feature when you use the connected mic to determine range, height and distance to the position in the room you are most likely to be seated for optimal sound.

'Buzzing' is not a good thing; it implies that filtration of the DC used by the output section is not as it should be. Power supplies that are mildly overloaded can cause this or an abnormal current drain from one (or more) channels. 

The odd problem with the back speakers does sound like a setup problem rather than a circuit failure.

No sound from my speakers

Check your Surround Settings (Make sure you are in Full surround and not 2 ch) as well as your Input Source Remember the Surround Speakers will not give you a Full Audio Output it will only give you "background noise"

No sound back two speakers

After using the method of last resort (RTFM) I discovered that Yamaha 7.1 amps assign an order of priority to the speakers. The surround speakers have higher priority than the surround-back speakers. I had connected the rear speakers (in a 5.1 configuration) to the surround-back speaker terminals and since nothing was connected to the surround terminals the E-6 error happed on auto-setup.

I eventually fixed this by connecting the rear speakers to the Surround L/R terminals and then, via the manual setup menu, set rear surround = NONE. This causes the amp to route the rear-surround signals to the Surround L/R terminals. The auto-configure then completed successfully.

Problem with pioneer vsx-916 av receiver

Be sure you have proper impedance with both sets connected. Some units have a selector switch in the back of the receiver to set the proper bias. ...accordianman
