I'm going to guess, though, that your audio drivers are either nor installed or not working. Go to Control Panel --> Hardware and Sound --> Device Manager, and look under Sound, video and game controllers acn check if the sound devcie is working properly if not reinstall driver....

Hope that helps.......

10 years and first problem to repair. When you turn on and select DVD or any other selection a very loud cracking noise comes through right speaker only. So loud (with volume tuned off too) that I fear...


I think your receiver is damaged.

Try this.

Mark the speaker wires on the back of the receiver. label the speaker connected to the left channel "Left" and the speaker connected the the right channel "Right"

Also pay attention to the polarity (positive an negative) making some type of marking on your speaker wire so you can reconnect them correctly.

Disconnect both left and right speakers.

Connect the speaker wire that is labeled "Right" to the receiver's left speaker connections only then turn your receiver on.

IF the loud noise comes back, this speaker is damaged. I am guessing that the speaker is fine.

Now connect the speaker that was labeled "Left" to the receiver's right speaker connections and turn the receiver on.

IF the loud noise comes back like it did before but now playing through the "good" speaker there is a problem with your receiver.

If so, your receiver is 10 years old. Isn't it time for an upgrade? Try ebay for good used equipment deals.

Amplifier signal does not reach both speakers equally strong


Check the balance (L/R) settings. IT is very unusual for something like this to happen. The problem usually is a total failure of one amp. If this is not the case then it might need to be adjusted and that would take special equipment.

I get sound through headphones but not through speakers. I do not have a remote. Do I need one to switch to speaker output. Sherwood RV6010R.


You don't say if this new or old equipment, new or old problem.

Usually you just unplug the headphones to enable the speakers.

The speaker switches are plainly visible...

My denon AVR-888 receiver displays H/P INPUT and flashes on and off which in turn turns all sound on and off in correspondence. ??? i have a 1 year old who like all 1year old play with everything. could it...


H/p is for headphone. It automatically turn the speakers of when headphones are used. Might have a bad connection on the head phone jack board, or your 1yr old put some thing metal in the jack. Try using a head phones.

It keeps goin to protectin mode


Well I have an Onyyo TS SV515 Pro II receiver that is quite a few years old. I have lived in several houses and have moved it with me. For as long as I can remember it has been going into 'protect mode' when I turned it over 6 on the volume knob. I have a subwoofer and 4 infinite speakers and a yamaha center channel speaker.
I got on the internet the today to see if I could figure out why it did this. One person suggested cutting my speaker wires and resplicing it making sure no hanging wires where there.
I had been using the same speaker wire since I puchased it (10 yrs ago). I feel pretty stupid, cause I just did the wires to my front 2 Infinite speakers and WaLa...It works flawlessly. I can now turn up my receiver...after 10 years of dealing with no 'full' volume.
*****Check those speaker connection, they are the key*****

Harman Kardon AVR 245 Receiver PROTECT Error Message/Shutting Down All Equipment


could be your receiver only, it has tripped due to discrepancy on the output stage of your amp. that cracking sound in one of your speakers could have caused the trouble. it is possibly shorted. but in your case it could have damaged already the amp that;s why it would not turn on. normally it will first trip, turn on then turns off. but to stay off and not to turn on again is major problem of the amp. or maybe it emanated from miscabling, probably the ceiling speakers got connected to a high output or main amp. but try removing all speakers first then turn the unit on. see if it does power up.
