Are you sure the wire is not damaged somewhere? Are you sure that you are connecting the wire to the correct terminal on the receiver? Is the speaker OK?

To test all of this, try different combinations. With Right speaker working, disconnect the wire from speaker and connect it to the left speaker. If it doesn't work, then the left speaker is faulty.

Now disconnect the wire from receiver's right-front terminal and connect to left-front terminal. If it doesn't work, you are either connecting to wrong terminal or the terminal/receiver is faulty.

At last, try using the "left" wire to connect the rigth speaker to right terminal. If it doesn't work, the wire is faulty.

P.S. The +/- doesn't matter for testing, the sound should go either. It is just needed to have all speakers connected in the same polarity, because else the sound waves would eliminate themselves.

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.

How to connect microphone to Yamaha RX-V365 as a PA system.


Home-theatre receivers don't have microphone inputs. If you want to use the receiver as an amplifier in PA system, you need to use some kind of mic pre-amp or a mixer with mic inputs.
For PA mixer is needed anyway almost every time and all mixers have at least one mic input (with a pre-amp). Mixers have line-level output(s), which you can connect to the analog input of receiver.
Using receiver as an amp in PA has advantage that you have 5 channel amp. When using high sensitive PA speakers (as oposed to less sensitive Hi-fi home speakers), you can get good performance with the power rating of receiver. You could even use 2 separate channels for subwoofers and 2 channels for satelite speakers - but for that you would need a receiver with 5.1 analog inputs and special device called crossover which would divide the output from mixer into low-frequency signal and high-frequency signal which you would then connect to the front and rear analog inputs. But with RX-V365 you can use only 2 channels with analog input

Yamaha RX-V365 Receiver I have no sound coming from my front R & L speaker terminals, the sub, rear L & R are all fine. Independently or factory set-up nothing comes out? Can anyone suggest what...


The front channels have a separate protection circuit from the rears and sub sections. It is possible that the unit i is not turning on the fronts. Without seeing the unit and testing some parts, I can't state for sure either the problem or solution. Can you provide more history? Did this just happen out of the blue?

Yamaha RX-V365 Receiver, Yamaha NS-AP2600S(BL) Speakers


Make sure the speaker select switch is on "A or B or AB. It's a small button on the front panel of the receiver (pen sized) and will give you visual feedback on the LCD display. If they are on, you need to have the unit bench tested at an audio shop and possibly repaired. Hope this helps

I have a Yamaha HTR6090 receiver and tannoy speakers. I cannot get the sound to come out of the speakers. Tried all speaker connections.


Is this new equipment or a new problem?

Have you followed the instructions in the manual on setting up the speakers, sources, etc?

Is it source-specific? How about some clues.?Something must work.

Yamaha RX-V365 Receiver when I hook up my center channel it is not audible at all. The R and L speakers work fine when they were located in the FRONT A and FRONT B terminals, but when I moved everything to...


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).

Yamaha RX-V365 unable to receive 5.1 audio from TV with HDMI


If you're expecting multichannel sound FROM THE TV instead of from the source you're watching, it's not gonna happen. TV's are notoriously poor sound sources. This one is no different.

Multichannel TV-related audio is best found at its source - cable / sat / dvd / bd....

I run video-related audio from my video sources directly to my TV and their audio directly to my receiver. Specialization yields best results.

I'd recommend skipping the Receiver for video, too, as it adds a lot of opportunity for HDMI-related incompatibilities and sound syncing problems. The more interconnects in the path, the more distorted it will become and the more opportunities for problems. Plus you can bypass the receiver and listen to lo-fi programming like news and weather through the TV's speakers if you like. Save a buck on electricity.

Just curious, which HDMI on the receiver is connected to your TV? Input or Output?

This note is on Page 11 of the manual:

Audio signals input at the HDMI jack are not output from any speaker terminals but output from the connected video monitor. To enjoy the sound from speakers connected to this unit,
-- make an analog or digital connection besides the HDMI connection (see page 13).
-- mute the volume on the connected video monitor

================
"Check SP cable." -- The unit is perceiving a short circuit. Are your speaker impedances sufficiently high? Disconnect the Front Right speaker and try raising the volume again. The speaker may be blown or the cable shorting.

I have HDMI cable from TV to RX-V365. HDMI from DVD player to RX-V365. HDMI from DirectTV receiver to RX-V365. Speakers attached. I can watch the TV and the DVD player... but the sound is still coming...


the RX-V365 cannot process the audio from the HDMI input. You will also need to connect a seperate audio input (either coaxial or optical) into the relevant input in the rear of the RX-V365
