I,m no expert but with some guidance I might be able to tackle the problem.
Thanks a million!!

    I have the genesis g-608, with the same problem. Only 2 or 3 of the 5 jacks have any output, while the remaining have little or no output or voltgage on them. Any place in particular I should start looking? Any help would be grand!

    Hi Roy, I am your expert...just wondering if the information i gave you was incorrect? Noticed you gave me a Thanks for trying rating. I have been repairing this type of gear for 25 years.... Just wondering why you gave me the low rating. Thanks for trying is generally reserved for solutions where the solution provider does not really know what they are talking about. I know i am capable of sorting the problem out for you. How did you go with checking your connections and following the manual for ideas first?

    regards Graeme

    hey again Roy... :)

    Hope it would not be too much to ask for you to upgrade this rating, its just that they still push your overall rating down by heaps when they stay, and it would be great if you could upgrade me! :P

SOURCE: no output

The most basic check is to see if there is a blown fuse in the sub woofer unit. Then the power supply should be verified for proper voltage, and load tested. Once this section passes, then it is on to the amplifier in the unit.

You can only have the service manual from the manufacture if they will sell you a copy. It is the same for any dedicated parts.

I have an older model Yamaha HTR 5830 receiver and I want to set it up for surround sound (5.1). When I test the receiver all five speakers give back a signal, but nothing ever comes out of the center or...

The broadcaster of the TV station has to tell you they are transmitting surround sound - sometimes they are just transmitting stereo. Also, the media as in CD's and DVD movies must have surround sound embedded or recorded on it to allow surround sound.

Connect creative 4.1 speakers with laptop at time 2 speaker work

i assume ur mother board supports surround sound an ur using windows os. go to control panel - sounds and audio devices - speaker settings-advanced - speaker set up with the drop down menu. select surround sound - apply - ok.
if ur using surround audio drivers like realtek, etc. the settings console should have somewhat similar options like audio input/output (I/O) options. select surround sound speaker setting and configure which audio port should be audio output ports. driver settings can be accessed from control panel too. to access control panel click on start menu there u'll see the control panel menu.

Back surround speakers dont work.

If the display reads 2 chan then that means stereo, and the sound mode is not in any type of surround processing. For your surround speakers to operate you must select a surround sound mode.

I have a 32 inch LG4000 with built in DVD. Poor Audio

You are not asking too much and I believe that you can solve this problem in a menu option on your TV. Most systems designed to work with surround sound and/or by itself have some audio options that are designed to simulate or work in concert with surround sound. Start by looking around your TV menu options for something labeled digital audio compression or something like it. Sometimes there will also be a function in a menu to "simulate" surround sound attributes. Try to change these to factory or default settings, and if that still sounds the same try changing the settings around until you hear more accurate audio.

Trying to get surround sound speakers to work with TV

They come with 3 x 3.5mm stereo to 2 x RCA phono cables, so are obviously meant for plugging in to the back of a PC with 6ch output.

BTW - they're ****.

I should've known for £29....

Polk Audio RC55i In-Wall Surround Speakers (can't hear whispers)

I'd make sure that the receiver surround mode is set for one of the digital settings, such as Dolby Digital or DTS, and make sure that you have the center channel level adjusted to a level similar to the other two front channel speakers. I've seen/heard this happening when using dolby digital material & having surround set on something like 'hall' or 'stadium' or dolby surround, where only 4 channels are used & the amp has to 'mix' sounds to the left & right front speakers. It'll often sound like the actors on screen are talking out of the bottom of a barrel, with a hollow & tinny character to the voices.
