Question about Yamaha HTR-5850 Receiver
I used the "silent cinema" option to listen with headphones. Now, even if the headphones are not plogged anymore, the "silent cinema" indicator lights are still up in the front panel display. I can't get rid of it and of course, there is no sound coming out. Thank you for your help and suggestions.
SOURCE: front display panel
Check for bad connections on the display pins themselves. Specifically, the ones on the ends are the power/ground pins.
Let us know if that resolves the problem. If not, we'll look further into the circuitry.

Solved problem with Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver. My daughter had inadvertently changed the program to "Direct Stereo" mode which allows sources to bypass the decoders and DSP processors so you can listen to 2-Channel PCM and Analog sources. Nothing to decode digital audio in this setting!

As simple as this sounds, try hitting the speaker a/b button on the front of the unit, next to the headphone jack. I had the same problem, and was about to package the whole thing back up and go back to Best Buy when I hit this button and then the audio test worked.

You can at a minimum, bi-wire your speakers by wiring the speakers with the A and B speaker outputs. The A speaker outputs end up running the tweeters and the B will end up powering the woofers.

You can set the receiver to any source that uses a optical connection. Then make sure that whatever you select whether it be CD/DVD you also have the source connection set to optical too on the receiver setup menu.
That being said, after that is done you will need to set up the computer to output audio. That usually just involves changing the output mode on the computer and adjusting the levels...open the Acer audio managment application, choose the audio output mode to stereo or dolby digital and turn everything up on the computers level controls. Then, when you open whatever software you're going to use to play your discs you may also have to adjust the volume level there as well.
