Hello barstep,

Let's go through some steps that will help alleviate your problem. We'll start from the simple to the not so obvious:

1.- Perform a visual inspection on the back of the receiver and verify that all speaker connections (specially the surrounds) are not loose, shorting out another connection or are pushed too deep into the speaker connector so the wire insulation prevents proper contact. If this is not the problem then...
2.- Get into your receiver's "Manual Setup" and verify that your surround speakers are set either to "SML" or "LRG" but not "NONE".
3.- Verify the receiver is not in "Straight" mode, shown on the receiver's display. I f so, press the "Straight" front panel button until indication disappears.

Your owner's manual can give you detailed information to access the setup menus.
Hope this information helps. Let me know if we can further assist you.

I have a yamaha RX-V461B AV receiver. I cannot get the the right front speaker channel to work. All the surround and center speakers work. Even when I run the speaker test, no static comes out from that...


There is no setting that would choose one front speaker to work differently than the other. The amp or something in the audio path within the receiver is failing.

I have an older model Yamaha HTR 5830 receiver and I want to set it up for surround sound (5.1). When I test the receiver all five speakers give back a signal, but nothing ever comes out of the center or...


The broadcaster of the TV station has to tell you they are transmitting surround sound - sometimes they are just transmitting stereo. Also, the media as in CD's and DVD movies must have surround sound embedded or recorded on it to allow surround sound.

The indicator is telling you you have a 2-channel input. You may have the Blu-Ray connected wrong. Or the source is only Stereo. I need more details to assess that.

The sound coming from all speakers is normal if you have any surround mode selected, regardless of the characteristics of the source

I imagine if you experiment you might find all speakers playing for any number of 2-channel sources, not just Blu-Ray. Besides actual Pro Logic decoding, the various surround modes can provide some interesting effects on non Dolby Surround material.

I recommend that you try them all on various recordings and you may find one or another of them preferable over vanilla stereo. I find that any given artist or music type, even within a given CD, may sound 'better' with different surround settings.

1 front speaker and 1 surround speaker won't work on cable selection


theres probably a problem with the right channel cable or plug that connects the tv to the reciever, or the tv is set to mono audio.

Center and surround speakers work, but front right and front left speakers do not put out any sound


I had the same problem. Set the reciever on 6 channel stereo. On this setting, you should be getting the same sound out of each speaker. Isolate which speakers aren't getting sound. Now, on your speaker switch (the A/B button), select A. If that doesn't fix it, select B. If that doesn't fix it, try A and B (if you can on your reciever).

Now, when you switch back to pro-logic, make sure your a/b channel switch is in the position that worked in 6 channel stereo. Yamaha recievers have a memory, and when you switch various modes, it makes auto adjustments based on what you had set in the past.

Hope this helps
