Question about Yamaha HTR-5240 Receiver

Yamaha HTR-5240 no sound from main speakers

I recently got a Yamaha HTR-5240 receiver. I hooked up the center speaker, and two rear speakers and they both work fine. The subwoofer also works.

The main speakers aren't working though, there is NOTHING coming out of them. I know it's not the speakers or the wires, they're good. I have no idea what the problem is. If anyone can give me any tips or advice, I'd really appreciate it.

Lux Audio 5.1 home theater speaker & Yamaha HTR 5540 AMP

configure ur PC (both OS audio and third party sound driver) for surround sounds. control panel- sounds and audio devices - speaker settings - advanced - speker settings. so this done. make sure u select the 6 input channel - the button is on the right edge near the volume knob. near the vol button there are two buttons for selecting input type with up down arrow. from that u can select the input type this will be indicated on the top front indicator. but with the 6 input channel selected all selections are preceeded. if u select stereo mode u will have left/ right audio only.
make sure u connect the input right. connect from computer to 6 channel input. main, surround, center and sub-woofer.  connect the spekers to main (L/R), rear(surround) (L/R), center and sub woofer to terminal marked sub woofer ouput. this done select like i said before the 6 channel button. that should do it.

Buzzing on certain speakers (but not all)

do you have the problem in stereo mode (no suround) Try to disconnect rear speakers and see if you still have the buzzing if you do then disconnect center and check,using only the mains,process of elimination, check your polarity + - on speakers and check the wire.I would double check ALL connections even RCAs

Yamaha htr5230 hookup

Hi, Your receiver is really the same as my HTR 5240. Same back and front. basically. Go to Retrevo for manual. Shows all the hook ups. I have VCR , DVD, Tape Deck, hooked to mine but can't find the adapter so i can hook up my indoor fm antenna. All my components plug to back of receiver then there is one RCA wire running from receiver to Tv.

Display shows only L and R speakers.

I think you need a digital coaxial wire instead of the composite ones

No sound from Yamaha HTR-5990

You must be sure that you also have "audio" cables connected to the receiver to make this all work. As far as the TV is concerned, the same applies....accordianman
