Speaker error message on yamaha home theatre unit

I have a Yamaha DVX C300SW DVD home theatre system After hooking it all up I get a speaker err message. I have tried the trouble shooting suggestion to unhook the sub and power off, but it still happens? help??
Comment by bikedoc, posted on Jan 23, 2008 I tried this, and checked all wiring. I even unhooked the left and right inputs coming from the t.v. but I still get the "speaker error" message. It only goes away when I unhook the main cable from either the sub or the main unit, but the message comes back when I reattach this cable. Help.

SOURCE: speaker errror message

The usual fix for "Speaker err" message is to simply unplug the sub-woofer power cord to reset the speaker diagram, plug it back in and remember to "match the negatives to negative, positives to positives" and never try to replace the original speakers with anything but equivilent speakers, adding on more speakers can cause the "Speaker err" message and an inoperative system.

How to hook up system to tv

The wires from the speakers usually go to a receiver/amplifier, which then connects to your TV. If you do not have a receiver/amplifier, then you will not be able to connect the speakers.

What player will work with the dvx-s100 speakers

The note about using other speakers (Page 11) implies that the electronics and the speakers are not dependent on each other but there might be tonal changes if you mix and match. Therefore, since they use bare wires you could drive them with any common amplifer that is comfortable with 6-ohm loads.

Yamaha dvd s-80 showing error code H01 when trying to play disc. What does this mean ?

The manual isn't much help, is it?

It seems the "H01" is some kind of common and fatal error code in many disc players and I have yet to find anyone who has paid the ransom, er cost, to get one fixed as it is cheaper and makes more economical sense to just buy a new unit...

Speaker Err on Yamaha Home Theater Unit ???

I am assuming this is the message that shows up from your receivers front display panel? It could be the receiver is telling you that you may have the neg & pos. wires crossed and in the opposite position either in back of the receiver speaker posts, or in back of the speaker terminals themselves. My Yamaha receiver has this nice feature where it will tell you when the speakers are "Out Of Phase" which describes the problem I have described here.

Just go back and make sure your wires are hooked up correctly, and use tape and a Marker to label pos. and neg so they will be easier to hook up next time you have to move the system, or decide to change some aspect of your system. I would then take the time to label every wire that goes to each speaker that you plug into the back of your receiver. This a BIG time saver........

Speaker error

Generally, an indication of "speaker error" means that something hashappened to an internal circuit of the unit. This can be caused byover-heat or over-current conditions which sometimes are due to runningthe volume high. If your problem occurred during a very loud passage ofaudio on the TV, this may be the cause of the problem. If so, it willnot matter which input you feed the TV sound into. In fact, the sameproblem might occur running the DVD player. The shut down condition inthe Yamaha is a protective circuit that keeps the unit from beingdamaged.

Now--it may well be that you were not running high volume at all andthe same problem could occur due to heat build up in the amplifier orto a circuit problem. If the system is in a warm area of your home,this may raise the internal temperature of the sub high enough totrigger the shut down. I do notthink that an external source is the reason for the problem--unless, ofcourse, the input signal level is too high and causes the volume to gohigh.

If you have the unit closed up in a shelf whith limited ventilation orthe sub is located where it has no cooling air, that could also be acause for the problem. You may want to try changing locations of theunit and see what happens. If you still have the problem, I recommendthat you go up on the Yamaha web site ( and click ontheir customer service area. Then ask about the problem and see whatthey recommend.

Video/dvd/cd play but no sound from speakers

Try changing "audio" setup in your TV to "variable" instead of "fixed", if you have that option on your TV set up... I have a Sony HD widescreen, and that worked for me...
