You don't have an external amlifuer, do you? You could hook the pre-amp out for the center channel to an external amp and connect the speaker to the amp. That way you could determine if it is the center channel output or the internal amp. Either way you probably need to get it serviced.

Hooked to surround sound, two front speakers, 4 wall speakers, 1 sub woofer. Restart unit and reduce volume unit is OK but normal talking is too low.


Voice tracks are usually routed to the center channel. You don't mention having a center channel speaker hooked up. If this is the case, then you need to go into the receivers setup menu and set it for no center. This will reroute the voice tracks to your front speakers.

Center channel problem


Sound circuit card has likely failed. Without the proper electrical tools (oscilloscope) it is hard to fix. Take it in and see what they say it will cost to repair. Take to at least two different shops.

Sound center


Replace center channel speaker with known good one. If no longer scratchy then the voice coil of removed unit is rubbing against the magnet pole and the speaker needs to be replaced. If the replacement speaker also sounds bad, then the amp for the center channel needs repair.

When trying to watch a dvd through a blu ray player, the background sound is coming in loud and clear, however when the main actors talk, their voices are not coming through.


Hello,
If you don't have a center channel you will experience this problem. The center channel is where all dialog is sent to. To fix it, you need the set the receiver to phantom center. Go into the setup menu into speaker setup and tell the receiver that you dont have a center channel installed. Once you do that, it will send dialog the the front left and right speakers.
Good Luck

The amps in the receiver turn off and on all the time. The center channel rarely works, and the left & right channels turn off & on every 10-15 minutes as well as the subwoofer output. Is there...


loose connections,issues. disconnect center and front speakers from this receiver. turn on with rear and subwoofer. horrible sound but the point is it will eliminate the speaker issues and confirm loose connection if the receiver continues to behave the way you described.I have repaired a few for loose connections.

Center Channel not working on pioneer vsx-d608


Be sure the sound source has a center channel output ie. not a 2 channel source only, try the test tone setup for 5 or 6 channel balance, if no sound from the center channel still then it is looking like maybe the center channel is blown.

No Sound From My Center Speaker


on the yamaha amps you can do a speaker test to see if all the channels are working. once that is complete and working you should check the disc to see if it is true digital or dolby pro-logic. normally on the disc menu you can select this.
