Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Speaker Trouble I have a problem with the speakers on my hi-fi. When I play music from my computer through them, there is no problem (suggesting that the speakers themselves are not the problem), but when I use my CD player, the sound only comes out of the left speaker. This is also the case when I plug in my headphones and use the CD player - only comes through one side of the headphones - but again, music played through the auxiliary channel is unaffected.

Michael,

Not being an expert, but having years of experience with electronics, I would think there may be a bad wire connection for the CD unit or a bad unit. If the CD unit is on your PC, you can check the internal connections. There should be a heavier gauge power supply cable and a lighter gauge signal connector. It could be loose at the CD unit or the motherboard. Use an anti-static wrist strap and make sure the power is off. Your cable might be bad and they are easily purchased and replaced. If it is on your "stereo", then check the RCA jacks. You can reverse the left and right RCA jacks to see if the problem is still in the same channel. You could also connect the CD to another line input on your receiver and see if the problem persists.

The screw section is probably for the house speakers. ( if they are still on the other end of those screw's wiring.) If you have a working speaker on your computer you need a jumper wire or sorts. Buy, build, or make it by cutting one your speaker wires a couple feet behind the speaker and stripping an inch of insulation to get to the bare wire.
Get some music on the speaker you use for testing. Cut the wire and remove an inch insulation from from the cut end coming from the computer. (you test and learn how to do this - hook it back up to the speaker wire. See if you made work again.)NOW THEN! Take the jumper wire ( there are at least two.) and start touching it to any of those two screws. If your computer was and still playing music after you cut the speaker wire or inserted a test plug with speaker wire - you will be able to locate speakers connected to that site.





This p in to that live speaker output has a lead out with 2-3 bare wires on the end to connect to the on the on the other end have the two pieces of wire with a speaker disconnected. to touch to those

Not outputting to all speakers from CD, but does from DVD


Hi,.

With the indulgence of the others...
dfadfab.jpg
If I understand your problem right:
1. CD works only in Speaker A (but not in Speaker B);
2. DVD works on either or both A/B;
3. CD will work if plug into to VCR input but selector must be of another source (not VCR).

A couple of suggestions:
a. pls try doing again the reset as ginko has suggested but make it a bit longer, i.e. unplug it from the mains for a couple of hours;
b. since you have remove most of the wiring, why dont you try switch A & B. make the family room speakers the B while the speaker selector the A;
c. hook the CD (only) using the RCA cables (red/white) nothing else;
d. play any CD music and go through the paces of selecting source, speakers, surround/hall/theater/etc as troylove11 has suggested.

This would be now a simple setup, 1 source (CD) to 1 output/speaker (the family room) via the Denon. Try different settings. If the CD plays normally then, without changing any setting nor powering it off (but with volume level all the way down), remove the family room speaker wiring and replace it with the wires to/from the speaker selector.

the idea is to determine which is the real issue, the Sony, the Denon settings/hardware or the speaker selector.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Sound is great unless I'm playing a DVD. When I'm playing a DVD, the music and sound effects are fine, but I have difficulty hearing and understanding the dialog. Any suggestions?


Check your setup for the center channel level, or to see if the center channel speaker is working at all.

Also check the setup in your DVD player to make sure its speaker setup matches what you have.

Trying to hook up 2 Hi Fi speakers to a reciever


Red left to Red left speaker
Black left to Black left speaker

then repeat for right speaker

turn on amp play somthing quite to start, check all is working. To check speakers are in phase play a bit louder and stand exactly in middle, bass should be defined and central, it helps to close eyes and listen. If not central and defined change over Red and Black on one side only then listen again with the same test.

Start flat with eq section adjust as you like when listening to something you know and like.

After all is working ok then make it louder.

Sorted!

We want to hook up eight speakers in eight differnet rooms (one speaker per room with individual volume control) and hook them up with yamaha RX-V1800 receiver so that we can play all the speakers in...


Hi...
Without a huge mess, I would suggest one of the multi-speaker selectors that partsexpress.com sells or a similar item.
Just put "speaker slector" in their search engine.

If youre going to 8 other rooms..you might try a couple of wireless speaker systems too. They work in stereo and ....no wires

I have repaired many of these Denon receivers over the last few years.

Since the headphones work, that means if you dis-connect the speakers it will turn on and not go into protect (when power cuts off a few seconds after turning the unit on).

The most likely problem is a bad speaker. to find out which speaker is causing the problem, do this.

Start out with just one speaker connected and then turn on the unit. If it turns on and plays music, you know that speaker is good.
Now turn the unit off again and add another speaker and keep the first speaker connected. Once again, if the unit plays, that speaker is also good.

Keep doing this same procedure one speaker at a time. As soon as you connect a speaker and then try to turn on the unit and it goes into protect, the speaker you just connected is bad.

To confirm that this speaker is the bad speaker, dis-connect all speakers and only plug the suspected bad speaker into a speaker jack that worked with one of the other speakers.
If the unit still goes into protect you know then that you have found the bad speaker.

If the unit still goes into protect, that speaker is bad and you will need to take it in for repair or replace it.
make sure you use 8 ohm speakers. if i remember correctly these Denons can use 6 ohm speakers, but those are harder to find and most home speakers are 8 ohms.

If the unit does not go into protect and that suspected bad speaker plays in one of the other speaker jacks, what you really have is a bad channel in the amplifier, the channel that the suspected bad speaker was previously connected to.

If you find out you have a bad channel, you will need to take it in to an repair center. Preferably an authorized Denon service center. There are not very many of those around. I work at the only authorized Denon service center in the entire state of Michigan.

If I can be of more assistance, don't hesitate to ask. And a good rating is always appreciated. :)
