Question about Yamaha RX-V550 Receiver
Just hooked it up. made sure set up subwoofer in menu to be set on "both" per instruction manual (so sub works in 2 channel and multi channel mode) and still no ouput to sub. Tried on another sub and did not work either so I know its not the sub. Switched cable....same issue. I noticed the little sub emblem on the reciever display is not lit up, just left and right speakers. So, although set up for sub use in menu, you see the sub emblem and then it disappears when you get out of menu. Also, one other odd thing, I see the "zone 2" lit up in the receiver display. Not sure if this could be part of the problem. But, music plays fine.... just no sub! Help me figure out how to make this sub output work! thanks
I have the same setup. Are you going out of the subwoofer output of the reciever? (it's purple.) then into the LFE jack of the subwoofer (also purple.) That's the only connection you need besides power. If you have those right, try using your cable for something else to make sure the cable is good. Is the indicator of the subwoofer green? Mine comes on with the reciever. Good luck!

Yes, sounds like your DSP chip has an issue. Not an inexpensive repair if that's the culpret. Around 400-500 to replace the chip. It's an awesome receiver and worth 300-400 in repair, however, a 3800 or 1800 can be had for 600-800 depending where you look. If you need more help, post a comment and I can help you some more.

SOURCE: rx-v550 receiver. Can't find
Generally speaking a receiver will power either the speakers OR the headphones. It is rare for you to be able to have both. The insertion of the headphones interrupts the signal to the speaker section. There are headphone amps available which would allow you to use the tape-out section of the receiver to get a signal to the amp wihtout effecting Zone B.
