A few years ago, I bought HTR-5830. It had been working well until several months ago. Suddenly, there was no sound any more. Today, I follow the manual to test all speakers, two rears, one central, and woofer are working properly. Only the two front ones have no sound. I think that the speakers are not working. So, I switch the front speakers with the rear ones. When these speakers are switched to back walls, they do work.
Then, I check the wires, pull them out and insert them in. Unfortunately, there are still no sound in the speakers on the front wall.
What went wrong? Any help will be greatly appreciated. My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hups, apparently my friend put the speakers into wrong slots. Then i just copied him while trying different speaker setups and it simply never occurred to either of us to check if these were the correct slots :-D

2. As far as the Fronts limiting to 0 dB, they are the reference for all others. Perhaps the engineers thought it made no sense for the stake in the ground to have a moving reference level. See step 3 on Page 50.
Are there 4 inputs on the back of the speakers? If so, you either need to hook up all four, or connect the upper and lower inputs to each other. The speakers come with gold plates that connect the upper and lower inputs, but you can just use speaker wire to connect them. At least that is what I did on the used set of speakers I bought when one plate was missing.
When you say click Is it a POP out of the speakers?? If the answer is yes then it sounds like a semicondutor such as an IC or driver transistor or preamp is breaking down . You also didnt state if its out of one speaker or both at once. Unless your a tech this is probably something you wont be able to troubleshoot and fix yourself as there are no user serviceable parts in this puppy. Good luck
The amplifier protection circuit is kicking in. There are a number
of possible reasons. One is that you have a problem with your
speakers or speaker wiring. Carefully inspect your speakers for
any changes, and examine the wires looking for shorts or opens.
If it isn't a speaker problem, then something in the amp is
triggering the protection event. It could be thermal (something
getting too hot). That could be due to bad air circulation, dust,
or an electronic component failure. A second event would be DC
voltage on the speaker outputs. This could be due to a bad capacitor, leaky semiconductor, or the bias adjustment (if it has one) that needs to be reset. A third event would be high current draw. That most likely would be due to a semiconductor that is about to blow.
You should have this checked out. If you keep doing your override,
you may blow out something that wouldn't otherwise fail. Or you
can wait for something to blow, and then it would be much easier to
find the root cause (just look for the smoke).
