If the volume is controlled with a mechanical volume control, usually a knob you turn or a slider you move, the problem is the volume control device (potentiameter) needs to be cleaned. That requires special cleaning chemicals most people do not have in their home. You would need to take it in to be serviced. This is a very inexpensive repair. Normally only costing about $50 to $75.

If it has electronic controlled volume like a button you press then it will still need to be serviced, but this is an unlikely case with static in volume when using the volume control.

If I can be more help let me know.

    Dave, Imy volume is at a all time HIGH and will not adjust down. Does this also mean the control device needs attention. If so where would u suggest performing the repair or is it something I can perform?

Volume levels vary for no apparent reason. From normal to quiet and back at what seems to be random time intervals. No jiggling of any wires makes a difference. The speakers are old and I'm wondering if...


If you are using it to watch cable TV stations, They may have different audio levels between programming. Also you want to check and not use dolby when atching standard TV channels

Subwoofer does not kick in during stereo mode with front speakers


There should be an adjustment in setup that for 2 channel sources, you may have to enable the subwoofer output. Or alternatively, if the subwoofer output for 2 channel sources is in fact enabled, then increase the crossover frequency for the sub.

Receiver is shutting down.....


First, I have to compliment you on a thorough and comprehensive problem description and an apparent sense of how to troubleshoot. We're halfway there already.

Your Blu-Ray / PS 3 statement is intriguing but with the E-1 code that absolves it as the problem.

You have two opposing symptoms: the live failure says you have a short while the test mode implies an open circuit. We have to isolate everything and see if it moves to another channel.

Let's run with the "E-1: NO FRONT SP" error. I think it's trying to tell us we have an intermittent sensation of an open wire in one of the Front speaker channels. * Unfortunately, the manual doesn't break out Left and Right (but I'm sure the receiver knows) to help us isolate. You say it doesn't get past the Left test. I need you to decide by listening to the Left Front Speaker setup routine if it's really working or not, and if it seems to be working, maybe the receiver is really failing at the point it advances to the Right Speaker, assuming Right follows left in the sequence.

Verify for me: You swapped the two front speakers Left to Right and replaced both speaker wires with NEW wires and had no improvement.

I'm wary of a failcode that doesn't identify which of a pair is failing, so I 'd like to see ALL NEW speaker hardware and connections in place to avoid the pitfall of swapping the L & R with each other and having one of them be the problem without changing the symptom.

We can accomplish this easily: Try temporarily running the rear speakers as the Fronts just to see if the test can pass. If so, test the Fronts as if they're the Rears speakers. You should be able to just swing the receiver-ends of the cables among the speaker posts.

Something should change or else the problem is internal to the receiver. Good luck.
