If one channel is out, the output transistors are probably open rather than shorted. It is possible that there are other problems. If you have no experience with electronics, I would not suggest you start here. This is a simple repair for a shop and should cost about $20-$30 in parts (or less if not the outputs) plus the local labor charge.

I have distortion coming out of my front right channel of my AVR


Yes, sounds like your DSP chip has an issue. Not an inexpensive repair if that's the culpret. Around 400-500 to replace the chip. It's an awesome receiver and worth 300-400 in repair, however, a 3800 or 1800 can be had for 600-800 depending where you look. If you need more help, post a comment and I can help you some more.

Speakers


If I understand you right, you have 7 speakers on 7 different channels.
When you have just 1 speaker connected it sounds fine, but any time you add more speakers it shuts down, or does it sound fine until you have all 7 of the speakers connected.

Bare with me, and we will figure this out. It is a very diificult job trying to troubleshoot something that is not in front of you.

After this post, it will be about an hour or so before you will hear from me again, I will be on my way home from work.

Is this a 5.1 surround system or is it listed as 7.1?

Do have have any speaker outputs with more than 1 speaker connected to it.

If this is a 5.1 system, do you have speakers connected to the "A and "B" speaker jacks?

What kind of speakers are they, and do they say on the back where you connect the speaker wire what ohm rating they are. Most speakers for your home are 8 ohms.

in case you were wondering what a 5.1 and a 7.1 system is:

the 5.1 system has front right, front left, center, rear right, rear left and the .1 is for the sub-woofer that is normally a RCA jack output on the back of the receiver

The 7.1 has all those same speaker outputs plus it has a surround back with right and left channel.

I will get back to you in about an hour or so.
