Hey guys - I have a question about my Yamaha receiver. It doesn't seem to be reacting right (only in the last few days). When I have it set on prologic, I can't seem to get any sound out of the center speaker, only the 1 front speaker. We thought maybe there was a prob with the center speaker, but when I play the radio or put it on disco mode, sound comes out of the center speaker (and all other speakers). This is driving me crazy, what can you suggest??

Re: No Sound From My Center Speaker
On the yamaha amps you can do a speaker test to see if all the channels are working. once that is complete and working you should check the disc to see if it is true digital or dolby pro-logic. normally on the disc menu you can select this.

I've tried using the balance for left and right speakers, and when the receiver is acting up with the right speaker having a low volume, I tried moving the balance all the way over to the right speaker. The right speaker volume will not increase in volume but the left speaker will decrease in volume.
Just to clarify, the center and the rear speakers are balanced. The issue only happens sometimes when I first power on the receiver I will have no center channel. If I leave everything alone for a few mins, the center channel will come on.
So it seems to me that something one the receiver is going. The question is, can anyone suggest a physical repair for the receiver for these symptoms?
just check by fault switched of the frond speakers. power on the receiver play some thing listen sound is coming from the other speaker except frond. press the speaker A button in frond of the receiver. listen is it become on. if not got to the menu of ur receiver surf for speaker configuration . find out the whether the frond speaker is off. if it off turn it on.
With what signal did you try? Maybe your signal source (DVD/TV or radio) didn't contain any sounds for the center channel. Go to the Setup menu, Speaker setup / Manual setup and find there item called "Test tone". It will output a test tone to each speaker individually (you will see on LCD which speaker is being tested at each moment). If you will hear a sound from the center now, there is no issue and center is working fine, just your source didn't contain any sound for the center.
If it doesn't work, then either you have faulty cable, faulty speaker or faulty center output of the receiver. - Try connecting the center speaker to different output of receiver (this will test if speaker is OK). - Try connecting working LEFT speaker to left output with CENTER cable (this will test if cable is OK). - Try connecting working LEFT speaker with working cable to the CENTER output (this will test the output of receiver if OK - but use the Test Tone from Setup).
When watching TV or VHS the sound should be stereo and therefor come out of the the 2 front speakers. I suspect you now have sound out of the left front and the center speaker which indicates you connected the center speaker to the right front speakerterminal and the right front to the center terminal.
Just check if all speakers are connected to the correspondent speakerterminal.
If this is correct and the problem persists, try to connect another speaker to the right front terminal to see of the terminal or speaker is not working properly. If another speaker does work on the same connection, your right speaker might be damaged which might not be heard when listening to 5.1 because of the surround sound.
Its not working correctly I have a few different types of center channels and they all have equal sound no matter how many speakers are in them. Connection in speaker box is bad or you may have a blown speaker
Hi Zanthena - my Yamaha rx v 2200 is doing exactly the same thing - did you manage to track the problem down? I have had my unit in for repair and the fault occurred again 6 hours after I re-installed it.
