Well, if the headphones work,then the amp in the rcvr is working.
Make sure speakers are hooked up properly (Spr A, Spr B, etc.)
Be sure speakers are selected properly on the front panel.Look in the owners manual and see if its possible to reset the reciever.If this is an older unit, speaker relay may be dirty or defective or unit is in protection.If unit used to make a click after a few seconds when first turned on and now it doesn't, then the relay is not working.

Have no sound on my surround sound sony


Could be a number of things try each and test!

  1. Make sure the MUTE function has not been activated.
  2. Try turning up the volume level.
  3. Check that there are no headphones connected.
  4. Try setting the Audio/Video (A/V) receiver to a different Surround Sound mode. IMPORTANT: Verify that the source you are playing is encoded with Surround Sound audio. If not, the audio will be very difficult to hear using a Surround Sound setting. Set Surround Sound to OFF when playing a source that is not encoded with a Surround Sound signal.
  5. Check each speaker to make sure they are properly connected to the A/V receiver.
  6. Perform a Test Tone function to verify if the speakers are working correctly.
  7. Verify all external audio sources are securely connected to the appropriate inputs on the A/V receiver. NOTE: If the audio is being sent from a television to the A/V receiver, then it may be necessary to disable the internal speakers of the TV or set the audio output of the TV to FIXED or VARIABLE. If the audio output of the TV is set to VARIABLE, then you will need to increase the volume level of the TV.
  8. Make sure the correct audio input is selected on the A/V receiver.
  9. Confirm what type of HDMI devices are connected to the A/V receiver and then check the following:

    1. Test each one of the HDMI inputs on the A/V receiver to confirm that all of the inputs for the A/V receiver are working.
    2. Try a couple of different HDMI cables to verify there is not a bad set of cables.
    3. Unplug the video source from the A/V receiver and connect the source directly to the television. If there is still a problem with the audio, continue to the next step. If connecting the source to the TV corrects the sound issue, service will be needed on the A/V receiver.
  10. Verify the DEMO (demonstration) mode is not active.
  11. Change the ATT (attenuate) setting. NOTE: The procedure to change the ATT feature varies by model.
  12. Reset the A/V receiver back to factory specifications.

How do I connect Samsung smart TV to a Yamaha receiver and get sound to come out of surround sound speakers?


Generally you will connect the Digital audio or optical audio cable from TV to the input of Receiver. Then using the remote control of Receiver you will program the source for digital audio or optical audio as TV. I am assuming the speakers on the receiver are already connected and working. All you do is then turn on TV and turn on Receiver and select TV on Receiver. The TV audio will play through the receiver. Make sure the TV sound is in Mute.

I have a Denon AVR-3200 Surround Receiver. When I plug in the headphones, sound comes through them, but the regular speakers don't turn off. How can I make them turn off? Thank you.


There has to be a switch or a function to turn the speakers off. On my receiver, you can choose speakers A, speakers B or you can choose speakers off.

Rear speakers on vsx1122 not playing, they tested okay


Manually change your surround settings for your satellite box input. Your box may not be putting out a signal that the receiver auto-detects as a surround sound signal, thus it just plays in stereo.

How to connect my JVC Audio/video control receiver digital surround sound system


Hi,
Need to know how to set up a surround sound system? It's fairly easy, with the right equipment. Surround sound gives you that "theater" feel in your own home.
For more information on optimizing the sound of your chosen system visit:
http://www.ehow.com/how_3393_set-surround-sound.html.
To set up a surround sound system go to:
http://forum.ecoustics.com/bbs/messages/34579/219978.html.

Additionally,Some people prefers a wire diagram to connect their surround sound system. The basic concept to connect any audio system is to follow the path of sound from its origin to its final output stage, either headphones or speakers. There are other basic premises to follow, such as the impedance of the speakers and the output of the amplifier, but the concept is to start with an input and terminate each input to an output somewhere on the amplifier unit.
A wire diagram shows a picture that represents where each of these wires would go in considerably little detail. One example would be that a television set starts with a signal from somewhere, broadcast or cable, and comes out of that antenna and goes into the surround sound amplifier. The sound is processed in some way and the video is output to the television set and the audio is output to the speakers or headphones. Although complicated in textual from, most find that a wire diagram is much easier to follow.

All 5 speakers work on test mode but on surround sound the left and right rear speakers are not working. How can this be?


Hello Ruby,

This is because your receiver is not in the correct surround sound mode for the number of channels being sent from the audio source, i.e. your TV or DVD player. It is likely your receiver is set for Dolby Digital (DD). You will need to switch your receiver to a Dolby Pro Logic (PL or PL II) setting to get audio from the rear speakers using your current audio source.

If you are unsure how to do this, please reply to me with the brand and model of the receiver. Some receivers have a "Surround Mode" button on the front of the unit or the remote. If you want to include further details of your setup, I can also give you some advice on attaining the best audio quality with the equipment you are using. You may be able to get Dolby Digital surround by changing some audio settings on the audio source or using a different connection.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Connecting media center to receiver


Hey there,

Okay let me start with your pc setup. What type of sound card are you using? Are you using onboard? You have to check and see if the sound card or device you are using supports SPDIF passthrough. Basically this does just what it says...passes the surround sound signal through your hardware with no onboard decoding and uses the decoder found on your stereo. I use a soundblaster Audigy and i had to enable passthrough in the audio console. I also had to enable spdif as my default audio playback device. This is in Windows Vista. You also need to go into properties and set the formats your receiver supports. Once that is complete you need to adjust the audio settings in media center and select toslink as your audio output and select 5.1 audio.

Things should work now...BUT...you will only get surround sound audio when watching a source that has dolby 5.1 or DTS. You will not get surround sound in games =( When i watch ota hd shows that have dolby audio, the blue light kicks on in my receiver and i get 5.1 audio. Same goes for watching DVD's. I hope this helps you out

No sound out of surround back speakers


It sounds like you don't have your surround sound source set up properly (your DVD player is not set up for PCM sound).

the best quality audio will be to set up either digital or optical audio between the DVD and the receiver.

Once you have connected the optical or digital audio cable between the DVD and receiver, you have to go into the DVD player audio setup and change it to PCM digital audio or you will not get surround sound. DVD players are not set up by default to output surround sound.

No surround sound


if the unit has no digital dvd 5,1 input it will not play 5.1 output, unless the unit is switched into a virtual surround mode(theatre/etc) mode try with a new dvd film with a digital glassfiber cabel if it shows 5.1 on the display of the receiver. if it shows 5.1 digital surround than the end stage of your surround is blown and needs to be replaced

Setting up receive set top box and tv for surround sound


Plug the TV to an open channel on your receiver via this output:
*Rear, 1 x Digital audio output (coaxial) ( TOSLINK )
This will look like a single RCA output plug.
Set that input channel on your receiver to some sort of virtual surround mode because it doesn't look like your HDTV has a decoder in it (meaning it will come out stereo and the receiver will have to fake it).
Turn the volume all the way down on the TV and use the receiver to control TV volume just as you do with DVDs.

*Substitute this with the digital audio output on your set top box if you are sending video only to the TV from the set top box (component, DVI or s-video connections). So video goes to the TV, audio to the receiver.
