Hello Jerry, This means that the unit is going into protection mode. The unit will only go into protection mode for 2 reasons. The first reason would be if there is a short within the unit itself. The second reason would be if one of the speaker connections is causing a short. To isolate which of the two is the issue, you would first turn the unit off and unplug all of the speakers. Turn the unit back on with no speakers connected and raise the volume up. If the unit turns off with no speakers connected then we know that the issue is internal and would have to go in for repair. If the unit stays on, that will tell us that one or more of the speaker connections was causing the issue. If that is the case I would check all of your speaker connections and possibly start with fresh copper connections. Thanks, FJD

SOURCE: no surround sound

So your saying that you have no rear channel. Some recivers use a single stereo output ic for both sides on the rear speakers. you could have a defect with this IC . Anther thing Im sure you check3ed the obvious ie : the switch is on suround sound? If there is a front to rear fader is it in the middle? Good Luck

SOURCE: Sound not coming from left side surround sound speaker or my right side front speaker

it is highly likely that you're TV is outputting mono sound, hence the left channel only. check your physical connections to the TV and the balance / channel volume on the television as well.

SOURCE: Rear Speaker volume too low

Channel level output can be adjusted in the menu if you have the remote. Set the rear channel level volume higher and the fronts lower if need be, and then turn up the volume. Enjoy!

SOURCE: I hooked up a fiber

Make sure that the place it is plugged into the TV is an output and not an input for the fiber optic cable, and the place it is plugged into the Onkyo is an input and an output for the fiber optic cable. This can be connected backwards very easy. Then you want to make sure that the Onkyo is properly set on the right function to listen to the TV. Check your owners manual on how to set up the optical input and have it assigned to the function you are trying to use. Sometimes these type of receivers have an input mode button that you can set to "optical" or "analog" or "digital" or "auto". Try changing those settings after you make sure the TV optical is an "OUTPUT" and the optical on the Onkyo is a "INPUT".

After you have these thing set right you should be able to listen to it like this.

I hope this helps, if you need more help just reply back on this post, but please give more detail about the connectors and on the TV and the Onkyo, and about the digital input settings on the Onkyo. It would also help to know the model numbers of both the TV and the receiver. There is no way to check out what each of your devices are capable of doing without knowing the model numbers to look up the specs.

Thanks,

Dave

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.

Yamaha rx-v2500 receiver how to hook up speakers

HI,

Follow these steps to connect a powered sub woofer to your receiver: You typically have two options when connecting a powered sub woofer. Input (1) on the rear of the sub woofer would be used when connecting the sub woofer to the receiver using speaker wires. You would then connect the main speakers to the opposite end, or output or the sub woofer to the main speakers. Option (2) would be using RCA line level output jacks, input (2) on the rear panel of the sub woofer directly to the single sub woofer output on the back of an AV receiver. blank.gif

I have no sound coming from surround speakers and sub.

Some surround modes switch speakers on or off as required. It's possible that the inputs you are using have settings that remember your previous settings, ie: no sub and surround speakers. Check the inputs and also make certain that whatever is connected to them is putting out Dolby signals.

I have a Fisher RS-909 Surrond Sound amplifier. It has no "sub out" jack. I had the sub-woofer working in the past by wiring it as shown in the manual. The problem is that the system was in...

Alright i had a chance to look over things, this is how you are going to hook up the sub. first we'll be connecting the surround sound unit to the sub woofer.
surround sound unit sub woofer
left front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) left speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - ->( - ) left speaker level in

right front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) right speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - >( - ) right speaker level in

now that the surround sound unit is connected to the sub woofer you will need to connect the front surround sound speakers to the sub woofer.
sub woofer front surround sound speaker
left speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) left front speaker
left speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - - ->( - ) left front speaker

right speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) right front speaker
right speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - ->( - ) right front speaker

Alright now that the wires are all over the place and plugged in
turn everything on and see how it sounds. let me know if everything is working as it should. if you need help with anything else or if something does not seem right please feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone

Cannot get power to sub woofer...

Maybe you could name the subwoofer model so we know what it needs for input.

And we need to be careful with the indiscriminate use of the word 'power' in audio discussions. There's wall power and there's amplifier (audio) power.

In the case of subwoofers, some are self-powered (AC power cord plugged into the wall and an amplifier built-in; usually receives subwoofer-specific audio program via RCA cables from YOUR source); others are passive (just get audio power from YOUR amplifier.

Pioneer receiver vsx-d510 sub not working

Rear Surrounds are not supported on this unit, they would be the 6th and 7th channels in a 7.1 rig. I think you mean Surrounds (channels 4 and 5 in a 5.1 rig).

Lets ponder: How is there any relationship between Surrounds and your separately-amplified Subwoofer? I don't see it, unless you inadvertently chose OFF for the Sub definition when you were in the Speaker selection menus adding the Surrounds. Look again.
