Question about Audio & Video Receivers

No sound to speakers with power on

I recently moved and just set up my stereo system again. After connecting the 2 speakers to Speaker A jacks and connecting the CD player, I powered it up to try it out. But, I am not getting any sound out of the speakers. Speaker A button is in the on position, and the correct inputs seem to be selected (i.e., CD or Tuner), but no sound is produced out of the speakers. I do get sound out of the headphone jack. What's going on? I have rechecked the speaker connections to make sure that they are correct. The owners manual troubleshooting guide says that the fuse may have blown out. What do you think? How would I verify that? Thanks.

    The receiver is a DENON DRA-825R. I do hear a click when I power the unit up and then another click a few seconds later after the Muting cycle is complete.

I can not help much without the make and model as these units vary quite a bit. Please update this with that info. Also, do you hear a click when you turn on the set? You should here one followed a few seconds later by another. Please update this and I'll get you some possibilites and some things to try.
Thanks,
Dan

You could use a Speaker Switch. You can find an ione at: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/4-pair-stereo-speaker-selector/9746779.p;jsessionid=A65E902544159CF276BC147D7BE1F696.bbolsp-app02-185?id=1218166511087&skuId=9746779&st=categoryid$abcat0107032&cp=1&lp=1#tab=overview

Some DVD's sound fine whilst others have background sounds but no voices. I do have an old model TV that has mono sound.Would that cause it?


" Some DVD\'s sound fine whilst others have background sounds but no voices. I do have an old model TV that has mono sound.Would that cause it? "
Hi,
I wrote a short article for someone who had a similar problem a few days ago.
I will edit it for you so that it fits. Here it is.
Your DVD player should have output connectors in the back of it to plug your amplifier or receiver into. If you have a Stereo system (no surround sound speakers, or front center speaker) connect the DVD Audio Cables on the back of the DVD player to the STEREO (or MIXED ) Output Jacks. If it is connected to the Left Front and Right Front jacks of the "Surround Sound" output jacks instead of Stereo(or MIXED) then the dialog will be sent to the CENTER channel output. If you have no center channel speaker you will not hear it. Thus no dialog.
NOTE: In your case for the TV that is mono, here is the solution.
1 Connect a stereo pair of RCA cables (red and white "male" connectors at each end) to the Mixed or Stereo Output of the DVD player (NOT ANY SURROUND OUTPUTS).
2 Purchase an RCA type "Y" connector that has 2 female to a single male connectors on it. Walmart about 3 dollars.
3 Plug the single male plug of the Y connector into the back of the TV set's single mono audio input.
4 Connect the stereo RCA pair from the MIXED output of the DVD player into the Y connector that is now on the back of yourTV.
5 Run your yellow Video output from the DVD into the Back of the Set's yellow input.
That should do it. The sound should be clear and correct with dialog, effects and music.
Hope this helps,
Best,
Mark

I have 3 sets of 2 ceiling speakers install throught the home for listening to music from ipod, cd, fm, etc... These speakers are not for home theater use (I have another 7.1 system for that). My question...


Hi,
firstly you could be experiencing "phasing" as you may have not spaced/set up the speakers properly. Also make sure plus on the amp goes to plus on the speak and ten - to - on the amp and speaker. cross them over at any stage or pair and again you will get your problem.ugest
It could also be you sre over driving your amp. How many ohms is each speaker and how many ohms is your amp capable of? 6 speakers to one stereo amp with one speaker out is very rare and usually quite damaging to equipment.
personally I would suggest one pre amp (to plug sources into) then 3 stereo power amps (one for each pair of speakers)

Sony HT 6500 receiver...center speaker jack crackles as soon as speaker wire is connected to it. Tried new wire, new speakers...same thing. Tried to reset to factory settings...ONly L and R front speakers...


try to spray contact cleaner into the speaker port itself.. Powered off of course.. let it dry and try again.. this will clean any connectivity issues due to bad contacts.. as far as replacing jacks.. try the suspected "bad" speaker and wiring in another port.. if it works then the speaker and wiring is good and you have to check actual jack in which you were asking and back to auto amplifier circuit or transistors.

I ahve a kenmore receiver and i just recently


If your adapter has a stereo mini male plug, you will probably have to buy a headphone adapter plug and use the headphone jack on the stereo for your input connection.

Weird surround sound speaker behavior with Denon 2105 7.1


Sounds interesting.
It may sound silly, but can you check all your speaker cables again and confirm whether they are connected to the right connections. please check all cables as also the severed one and please repair it also.

Now please go to the system-set-up and do an auto setup and set up your speakers. Listen to the test tones and confirm that they are coming out of the correct speaker.

Once these are set, then if still there is mismatch of sounds, then we could further trouble shoot.
