I can not change the "sound field program" mode to other modes (music/movie/sports/game). Also the DEC. MODE button doesn't work. It worked when I first hooked up the system. All other buttons work. What have I done wrong and how do I fix it.

Make sure your receiver is in surround sound mode on the sound fields for that input. Some receivers have independent sound mode settings. example would be hdmi 1 is set to 2 channel stereo while hdmi 2 is set to PL II movie which is a surround sound setting. Hope this helps.
What is the source of your sound? By default, receiver will use only those channels that are used in the input signal - if you play CD in stereto, it will use only 2 front speakers. If you play DVD with 5.1 audio, it will use all 5 speakers (+ subwoofer if you have one).
However you can use one of the bulitin "sound field program" modes to mix the 2 channel stereo music to all speakers. On front panel, press "PROGRAM < >" buttons to select the one you like. Or on remote control, repeately press MOVIE, MUSIC or STEREO buttons. You can check your manual for description of each sound field program.
try other sound settings first, eg music, stadium, games, all the other sound options. if same results your centre speaker could be gone. or you need to increase the volume of the centre speaker in setting mode. do this first before assuming the speaker is no good. hope this helps
hold down the set button until the display flashes. You may then cycle through the modes and fields to be set by pressing the mode button. The opposite two buttons (strt/stp / clr) are used to add or subtract to the field that is flashing or in set mode.
I am assuming that you want to have a normal stereo ( 2 channel ) from, CDs, Radio Etc..To be able to play from all of your speakers for a more surrounding sound experience, for parties or just more sound.I am also assuming you currently have your speakers wired like standard 5.1 in the bottom diagram on page 19 of your receiver manual.To change the way the sound is coming from your speakers you will need to refer to the “Sound Field Programs” part of your manual starting on page 52.You will want to be in the input source you would like to change “ie: radio”Let assume you want to change radio, once the radio is on;Rotate the “N” Program selector, (or press “5” and then “12” Prog < /> repeatedly ).You will want to change to program, “7ch Stereo”this should take your 2ch signal and send it to all connected speakers.If this does not work, please let me know.
There are a few settings that will just give you a stereo output. The first one is with the Pro Logic II. If you press the PLII Mode button on the remote it will go through a series of settings from MUSIC ➞ CINEMA ➞ PRO LOGIC ➞ MATRIX ➞STEREO ➞ MUSIC. Pro Logic setting will only produce sound from the front speakers and Stereo from the front speakers and the sub. Put it on Matrix for 5.1 surround sound. Also for speaker settings follow the instructions below. Signal outputs and frequency responses from the speakers will automatically be adjusted according to your speaker configuration and whether certain speakers are used or not. In Stop mode, press the MENU button. Press the Cursor down button to move to Audio and then press the ENTER button. In the SPEAKER SETUP, press the ENTER button again. Press the Cursor button to move to the desired speaker and then press the ENTER button. For C, SL, and SR, each time the button is pressed, the mode switches alternately as follows : SMALL ➞ NONE. For L and R, the mode is set to SMALL. SMALL : Select this when using the speakers. NONE : Select this when no speaker is connected. Press the RETURN button to return to the previous level. Press the EXIT button to exit the setup screen. It also seems that with this system, if you are on 5.1 surround but your music source is only in stereo, you will only hear stereo.
the speakers can only be accessed from the inside of the set. try using the sound Field button on the remote ( the one with the music symbol). change to effects off it may be in surround mode and causing the speaker to buzz.
