Re: the rear speakers and the center channel speaker do...
Hi, maybe,like my HT-THX25, my book states that sound will only be heard from the rear speakers when in DVD 5.1 or Dolby Pro Logic 11 mode, peronally I would love to hear sound from any of my speakers when TV is on lol. Geoff

I've tried using the balance for left and right speakers, and when the receiver is acting up with the right speaker having a low volume, I tried moving the balance all the way over to the right speaker. The right speaker volume will not increase in volume but the left speaker will decrease in volume.
Just to clarify, the center and the rear speakers are balanced. The issue only happens sometimes when I first power on the receiver I will have no center channel. If I leave everything alone for a few mins, the center channel will come on.
So it seems to me that something one the receiver is going. The question is, can anyone suggest a physical repair for the receiver for these symptoms?
if its a 5.1 channel home theater,it means you have to hook up the subwoofer or maybe a center speaker to its terminal to have them all working. 2 front speaker,2 rear speaker and 1 center speaker or subwoofer =5 and amplifier is 1 so it is a 5.1 channel.hope this help..
Hi when using surround sound its important to understand that not all soundtracks have a "rear channel' meaning that the rear speakers will not always produce sound. In fact the rear channels may only produce sound about 10% of the time.
Your receiver has a "test tone" which sends a tone sound through the 5 speakers you should turn the speakers up or down so that all 5 speakers produce about the same volume.
The speakers of course will have a different sound to them depending on the brand and model but just try to balance it as much as possible.
Should also point out that you need to start out with at minimum a STEREO signal and that it needs to be connected with good quality cables. If possible use the optical inputs or HDMI which is a digital signal but not all receivers have that capability.
Lastly play around with the settings Dolby is of course the standard but many receivers have Neo or other proprietary surround formats which may produce the desired effect.
Back to basic to advance:
Be sure you have all speakers connected correctly behind the receiver.If you center channel don't have any sound,it could be 7 different issues,but you could try to just hook up your center channel to either the right or the left speaker output to be sure the center channel speaker does work.
Check your the speaker wiring tip(if there is any),i will use just the speaker wire go straight to the center speaker output,go to the receiver to change it to pro-logic or dolby digital and of course you should put in a dvd in the dvd player to have a good quality movie to play the dialogue through the center channel for you test.
If you have tried the above step and still have no sound,you might consider hiring a troubleshooting master to take care of your issue.
