Question about Yamaha HTR-5940 Receiver

Yamaha htr-5940 with Acoustic Research wireless speakers AW877

I purchased this set of wireless speakers to use as surround (back)speakers for my system. The tranmitter has either a red and white RCA jacks or a headphone plug . The problem is where to plug them. If I plug into headphone the sound is great but I loose the front set up. If iplug them into the rec output and select tuner everithing works, when I switch the receiver to TV or DVD or XM (I have a Samsung HD and a Panasonic DVD) I loose the AR speakers but the front setup works fine. Tech supp. for AR is useless. I would hate to get ready of the wireless setup since running wires to the back of the room is virtually impossible. Any suggestions as what to do or add to the setup would be highly appreciated. best regards. Gian.

I was told i might have a fuse blown on my htr-5940,cause the 3 left speakers work for the test but not for actual playing.is that the problem?and where can i find the fuse?


There's no separate fuse for test versus operational speaker function.

Evaluate the source for why the "3 left" speakers (whatever that means) don't work for program material.

I have a yamaha htr-5940 and have hooked my PS3 directly to my Television with a HDMI cable and to the receiver with an optical cable, I am not getting any sound from my speakers (surround sound) am I...


get into the menu of the receiver and find "input settings" look for "audio" and set it to "auto" If it still has no audio, put it on the input it needs to be "DTV" "Aux" etc. then press input mode on the remote. It should say "auto" or "digital" if so, pull the optical off the back of the receiver and make sure you see a red glow. That let's you know a signal is present. If it's not, get into the menu of the PS3 and find the audio section and set it to Dolby Digital. If you still have an issue, post a comment and I will help you further. Hope this helps

Left from speaker not working- Yamaha HTR-5940-6.1 channel


Redbird,

What do you have in the "multi channel input" jacks on the rear of the receiver? Those inputs Right, Left, Center, Surround R+L, and Sub are used when selecting 6 channel mode. They bypass the receivers surround processor board.

Turns on then off.


It probably needs a set of output transistors, 2 pre-amp transistors and a 5.6v zener diode. Possibly a resistor or two. I've fixed many of these. Definitely a job for a pro.

HTR-5940 6.1 Channels


Every time this has happened to me it was either due to incorrect speaker impedance or incorrect polarity (+/- wires reversed).
