Marantz SR5200 - front speakers not working unless direct
My Marantz SR5200 has decided not to put signal through the front speakers unless the signal path is switched to direct.
In any other mode, including 6 channel stereo or DTS, I only get a signal in the centre speaker, sub and 2 rears. I've tried the test tones and same applies... nothing in front L & R.
Even the on board tuner only does the same, so its definetly internal.
Is there any way to do a complete reset of the SR5200 or does it need to go to a techy for a service?
Re: Marantz SR5200 - front speakers not working unless...
Hello, I have a SR5200 and am experiencing a very similar problem. Usually the system works fine, but every so often the front channels cut out and in stereo mode all I hear is base from the subwoofer. Sometimes the front channels return if I power the unit off and on - but sometimes they'll only return for a few minutes before cutting out again - sometimes they don't return. Sometimes the front channels cut out for a few seconds then come back themselves! Strange...
Has anyone had this problem repaired? Any ideas what it could be?

try to reset the memory circuits, the info on them may be corrupted, try this: 1 disconnect the plug from the AC line supply 2 wait 10 minutes then, reconnect the plug to the AC outlet 3 try to operate the equipment.
now.. if above does not work you may have to contact the manufacturer as the issue could be related with the internal circuitry.
chances are you have the volume too loud and the speaker wires are crossed.
all speaker wires need to be with the positive on the right and negative on the left if you have them anywhichway than it will work on low volume and not a very good sound.
look closely at the wires and they should have a red or so color on one side or the wire jacket itself will have a round side and a flat side
Check for a stuck/jammed switch, press each switch if one doesn't make a normal click sound or it doesn't move at all that's your problem.
If that's not it check the owners manual for how to reset the receiver (not all manuals will tell you how to reset it) Another way to reset it is to short the memory cap, but that is better left to a tech.
