Question about Yamaha HTR-5830 Receiver

1 Answer

Front speakers have no sound now.

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: jshi57@yahoo.com

    I have the same problem with the front speakers. We had a Kenwood receiver before this and the same thing happened, that's why we bought this receiver. What's up with this? Is it a common problem for the receiver's channels to go out on the front speakers?!? Help!

    I've had this same problem for a few days now and nothing seems to help. I've: reinstalled drivers, tried different sound cards (all have the same problem), speakers (all working) and operating systems (Windows XP & Linux Ubuntu), restored BIOS to save defaults...

    I had the same exact PC setup working fine until i moved the motherboard to a different box. I have the same wires and jumpers connected the same way as earlier, PCI devices & most USB devices as well.

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

Anyway sorry for these useless posts.

Cant get front left and right speakers to produce sound....when i try to use the receiver remote to turn up the decibals on the front speakers it wont go past "0"...it will go into the negatives...


1. Speaker B instead of A selected??? Page 53.

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.

Yamaha HTR-5830 does not work with Sony PS3 optical cable connection. There is no sound at all. Do I need an HDMI cable. Right now I only have component cables which work fine with the red and white...


Make sure you have the "audio input mode" on "Auto" it's a small button on the front of the Yamaha. Then go into the PS3's Audio setup and make sure it's set to Digital. Hope this helps

Partial sound from my JBL E60 Towers


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.

Receiver clicks


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).
