Just because the power ratings are close does not mean that you can't overdrive the speakers. If the amp was at max and you really pushed it, the amp could have generated distortion. It is the distortion that usually causes a speaker to fry. Warranties only cover manufacturing defects. If the speaker looks like it was overdriven, that is not a manufacturing defect. It would be considered customer damage. This is an issue that you should take up with a manager if you feel it is a warranty issue.

Good luck.

Hi...

Find someone that does TV or audio repair and have them open it up. A cable assembly may have loosened during the MOVE.

How can I connect Senheiser wireless headphone to Yamaha RX773 without using front headphone jack as this mutes speakers, I have hearing problems, my wife doesn't, I tried both av audio outs in the back...


Your receiver has Zone-2 functionality. For Zone-2, it has both speaker (powered) output and pre-out line outputs. According to Yamaha FAQ, these pre-out outputs are independent on the main volume settings. So if your wireless headphones have their own volume settings, you can change the volume independent on speakers volume.

If you want same volume for speakers and headpohones, use the PRE-OUT FRONT outputs on the back. If you want different volumes (and listen to headphones even with speakers muted), use ZONE-2 OUT outputs on the back.

Denon receiver problems


Check sound from headphones. These models have been known to have bad headphone jacks that make the unit think there are headphones plugged in even when there isn't. Sometimes just plugging in headphones and unplugging them will fix it for a while.

No sound at all when headphones are plugged in


Hi, I apologize in advance for not offering a solution. Have just trolled through the handbook (on-line) for anything that might offer a clue. It takes both high and low impedance units so that's cool. They say to use the phones to assist with speaker issues and there's nothing to suggest that any of the settings affect them. Depending on the impedance the volume levels can change a fair bit so I guess you've cranked it up to check. The fact that they turn off the speakers doesn't add a lot, it can often be a simple mechanical switch in the socket when the plug is inserted. Does the 'speaker off' indicator come on when you plug them in. The only other things I'd suggest is both try another set of phones regardless and the other is reset all the sound settings to factory and see if that has any affect. Else you likely have an issue with the phone interface circuitry.

Suddenly, I can only hear the sound faintly, even though it's turned up full volume on my Yamaha HTR 5560. What happened? I've played around everywhere with the converter now. Restore defaults anywhere?...


Have you checked the MUTE function?

NEVER turn the volume up more than half-way for any sound problem. Otherwise, if you suddenly find the switch that's out of position you could blow your speakers.

What converter?

What channels, what source(s)?

Speaker output doesnt work


Hi when using surround sound its important to understand that not all soundtracks have a "rear channel' meaning that the rear speakers will not always produce sound. In fact the rear channels may only produce sound about 10% of the time.

Your receiver has a "test tone" which sends a tone sound through the 5 speakers you should turn the speakers up or down so that all 5 speakers produce about the same volume.

The speakers of course will have a different sound to them depending on the brand and model but just try to balance it as much as possible.

Should also point out that you need to start out with at minimum a STEREO signal and that it needs to be connected with good quality cables. If possible use the optical inputs or HDMI which is a digital signal but not all receivers have that capability.

Lastly play around with the settings Dolby is of course the standard but many receivers have Neo or other proprietary surround formats which may produce the desired effect.

Hope that helps

Voices drowned out by background noise.


Not a suggestion, but I hope there is a solution.
Recently bought an LG HDTV that has a setting that should increase the voice over the background. If it does, I can't notice the difference. I guess they can probably measure it electronic.
I've had your same complaint for years, without a good solution. Best so far is to use headphones.
I have no idea why film people add all the extra noise. Most of it is not even real.
