No audio output from Pioneer VSX-D608 Receiver

My Pioneer VSX-D608 only has audible clicks through the speakers (A,B, Center and Surround) when provided with a source such as CD Player, Tuner, etc. I've checked all the fuses and am ready to bring it in to get get checkd out. Any help is greatly appreciated. I just purchased this Pioneer VSX-D608 Receiver. I have hooked up everything properly. I have 2, 6 ohm speakers that I hooked up. First I hooked them into surround speakers but got no sound, then I hooked them up to speakers A-B, still no sound. I hooked up a dual cassette deck into "Tape 1", selected "Tape 1" sound. I've tried the tuner, T.V., everything, but nothing seems to get sound.

My turntable won't work with the pioneer vsx-d608

Your old-school un-preamplified turntable requires an outboard Phono Preamp (*) to PRE-amplify and RIAA-equalize the tiny voltage signal produced by the phono cartridge. It will not work on any Line Level input like Aux or CD. What you will hear is a useless, barely audible, tinny playback.

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.

Pioneer VSX-D608 Optical connection

The manual states that the default association of each digital input in as follows:
  • Optical 1: CD
  • Optical 2: MD
  • Optical 3: TV
  • Coax: DVD
Use the "Signal select" button to set the receiver to use a digital input, and the Dolby/DTS button (above "Signal select") to enable decoding.

As samz11 stated above, a remote is required to alter the digital input mapping.

When I had problems with my VSX-D608, I resorted to downloading the manual for VSX21. This model seems to have the same features in the ELITE form. It has helped me figure out some speaker problems.
