No Surround and Multiple Inputs Play at the Same Time

When trying to play a CD recently, I noticed that all my speakers were not playing (no surround effects, only the front left and right speakers, no center, no rear, no sub-woofer). I tried the different modes like Club, Theater, Live, etc. with no effect. When I switched the input source to the TV setting, I noticed that the TV sound started playing while the CD was still playing. I then switched the input source to the FM-tuner and all three started playing at the same time, no matter what source was selected. I have tried the reset/restore button on the front panel which seems to temporarily eliminate the multiple input playing, but does not restore all channels. There was a lightning /hail storm in my area recently, but no other components plugged into the same outlet including my television seem to have been affected. Any ideas for repair suggestions? I've really been impressed with the unit and hate to think about shelling out he bucks to buy a new one. I am tech-savy, but don't have schematics or any tech notes for this model. Thanks!

    I fixed my own problem. After opening the cover, I discovered that there is a 120V 1A glass mini fuse on the underside of the power supply circuit board. This fuse was blown. It apparently feeds power to the amplifier and signal distribution circuit boards. Once replaced, the unit works perfectly again.

    I have a similar problem, only my receiver has sound from the subwoofer, and the 2 rear speakers in surrond sound only. When I switch to stereo, I only have the subwoofer, no front or center speaker. I checked the fuses like 10forty2's suggested, and they checked out good. I located 4 fuses labeled f1, f3, f4, f5, but I could not locate f2. F1 was located on the circuit board at the bottom of the power supply, and f3-5 were located on the circuit board at the top. Any idea where the f2 fuse could be??

Center speaker problem on pioneer vsx 40 .I hooked up the center speaker and I can’t get sound from it

Most problems are menu settings, because surround modes can be complex and confusing. Verify what surround input type you are using. FM tuner will not play center spkr unless put into a simulate or expand stereo mode. Do other surround speakers work other than normal L/R stereo mode? You can try redoing your auto surround setup (MCACC) or going to the manual speaker setup and verifying speaker is turned on in menu system. Rechech you listening mode setups at Pages 33,38,39 in your manual. Try another speaker and wiring on center output. Try Different surround inputs, some manufactuers have had problems with their DTS and HDMI boards. Otherwise take to repair.

Panasonic TV does not play through surround speakers

so it is a connections problem I think. Check if video and audio cables are properly connected. Use color codes as your guide. Also from menu check if all settings are ok. Good luck

Sub would only sound when am listening to radio would not sound when playing dud aux but surround speakers play

Possible that the connection to the AUX does not activate if you are using RCA inputs. Connect the DVD using the optical cable or the coaxial link and it must play better with surround and subwoofer in DTS.

How do you make the 6.1 channel work? Right now it just says digital. Does 6. 1 channel sound better?

6.1 stands for six speakers and one sub-woofer - a total of seven actual speakers giving you the surround sound effect. Before it can play a surround sound environment, the media - a CD or DVD must have it encoded on the disc, like a movie that has 6.1 surround sound recorded on it or a music CD with recorded surround sound. Otherwise, it will just play stereo audio - two speakers and the others are redundant. And yes, it does sound better as if you are in the actual area it was produced - like if you were there.

When I play a DVD in the system I can only get the surround sound out of the speakers but no voices. If I play a CD or hook it up to my tv everything is ok.I have tried a number of DVD's and all have the...

sounds like you need to surround modes. There is usually a Stereo, Dolby, DTS, "virtual surround", 4-speaker mode etc..
When you play a CD or connect to TV it likely defaults to playing stereo or virtual surround.

With real surround, almost all of the voices are coming from the center-channel speaker (normally placed closest to the TV).

Also, check to make sure the center channel is connected properly.

Forced 2.1 sorround sound on 5.1 surround sound

Swap the inputs around see what happens Whether or not the out put is 2.1 or 5.1 has to be the nature of the signal going into the master unit So have you got the sound card set up right- check sound card software. Also check the Computer MoBo manual is there a BIOS setting that needs changing? Also contact the makers website Tech Help if the manual is of no help. take a look here http://www.fixya.com/support/p39860-cyber_acoustics_ca_5001_computer

DVD SUrround SOund Help

Ensure that there are no conductive material's (metallic thread, fine wire such as shielding braid)near your Aux inputs that may be shorting your connections. You could also try using an emory board or fine sand paper, or even a pot scrubber on your inputs and RCA plugs in case it's just simply dirty and hampering the connectivity.
