Question about Sony STR-DE535 Receiver

Open Question

SPEAKER PROBLEM I have a problem with my center speaker. I get a buzzing sound but when I disconnected one of the channels everything is fine.. I determined that it was not the fault of the speaker, borrowed a speaker from a store and had the same problem. Anybody have any idea what the problem could be. I have my system hooked to a high def TV.  EMILE  [email protected]

SOURCE: Center speaker not working

Yes Mark, You have a problem with a componet with that center channel. If your not a tech, dont have a schematic, or dont have any training in troubleshooting solid state electronics, unhook everythuing and take it into a repair senter for an estimate, as unless you know how to chech the parts you can cause more damage to the unit as it takes one slip and boom, all gone. Good Luck

SOURCE: Sony STR-DE945 5.1 Channels Receiver

Hi, Happened across this forum looking for some remote info. Had a similar problem with my 945...main speaker outputs started to click off & on, no rhyme or reason. Found that the solder joints on the speaker output relays were cold (poor soldering). Actually happend twice, two different relays. Took me a while to find it, reflowed the solder, that solved the problem, over two years ago now. Are you able to dig into the receiver? Do you have a (good) soldering iron and some solder? If not take it to elec. shop and tell them to look for cold joints on the relays.

SOURCE: Sony STR-DE845 center channel cut out, receiver clicks

I have fixed 3 shorts on my de845. 2 have been caused by cracked solder joints. they were speaker cutout problems...yours most likely is the center channel relay on the main board. take the thing apart. you need to get to the back of the main board and re-flo those solder joints. get your geeky pc buddy and do it together(buy him a sixer). its really not that hard...just a bunch of screws. disconnect everything from the main board including the front plate. be careful with the ribbon cable...mine is hurting at this point. not meant to be removed so many times. put it in straight. my leads bent, but was able to straighten them. there are 5 relays together, one for each channel. they are white cubes and prb a little smaller than the tip of your finger. its the 4 leads on each of these that you want to take a soldering iron to . i'm not sure which ones the center channel so do them all in that area. it may be hard for you to tell which leads they are so just go overboard and at least get everything in the vacinity. i did all component leads because who's to say another's not ready to go bad. you've gone this far. touch the heated up tip to all the leads at the very end of the barb. you can reflow the solder without actually touching it. the metal lead will get hot enough. hold it until the solder liquifies, then let it cool. do this on a flat surface. my other fix once was a re-seating at the speaker switch a,b,a+b on the front plate. there are 2 boards plugged together there. i bent the leads slightly so they seated in more tightly. if your left or right front goes out, sometimes thats an easy fix...try b if you're using a, or the opposite. don't forget the speaker cables. if you're using both zones then you prb already figured out you need to re-flo! test and cross your fingers. good luck.

SOURCE: No output on main speakers

I have experienced a similar problem with my Sony STR-GX57ES and took it to a certified tech only to find it needed the power supply replaced. I opted to hunt down a compatible power supply but have been unsucessful thus far. That being said I picked up an STR-D665 for next to nothing and found the power supplies to be quite different (you would hope so any, with the ES meaning Elivated Standard and all) but with the D665 working flawlessly I'd rather have something working than nothing. Good luck!

No sound on lg lht874


Disconnect all speakers and check all sound channels with one speaker. If no sound again it can be only main board. Contact directly by mail to our technician support, click "about us" avsystemparts, probably we can help resolve the player troubleshooting.

Can a power conditioner improve distortion sound on center channel speaker? I have a Pioneer vsx 1020K receiver and I am only having a problem with the center channel. At first I thought the problem was...


First; power conditioner won't do anything for your issue. It's not crosstalk (unless it's a wireless spkr) On your sub are cables mark + & - ? If so make sure they're attached accordingly to back of receiver/amp. Your distortion sounds like a phase issue. I'm also curious how store performed diagnostics?

Have been trying to connect speakers to my samsung AV-R720 receiver but I am getting a terrible buzzing sound and only the center speaker is playing. I have lost the manual and would like to know about...


http://www.retrevo.com/support/Samsung-HT-AS720-Home-Theater-Systems-manual/id/6333ci454/t/2/
Page 10 discusses speaker connection.

Disconnect everything but the speakers and evaluate the buzz. It may be coming from external hardware or loosely connected analog cables.

Sometime juts rotating the ac plug on one device eliminates the ground loop buzz.

Hi ! I have a Mc Intosh MC352 and my problem is that I have it hooked up with my B&W 802s. And i notice one side is louder than the other. I checked my Wires an everything seem s fine. What's the...


Swap the speakers around. If the sound stays on the same channel and doesn't move with the swap, then the amp has a fault on that channel. If it does move to the other side the speaker is the problem.

If it is an amp fault you can track it down using a insulated tool and the buzz test. You simple touch points on the good channel with the tool and in places it will buzz. You compare that by touching the same places you got a buzz (on the good channel) on the bad channel instead and if it doesn't buzz or it's weaker then you have located the problem.
You can also check the voltages with a meter in the same way. As the voltages should be the same on the two channels.

Yamaha RX-V365 Receiver when I hook up my center channel it is not audible at all. The R and L speakers work fine when they were located in the FRONT A and FRONT B terminals, but when I moved everything to...


With what signal did you try? Maybe your signal source (DVD/TV or radio) didn't contain any sounds for the center channel.
Go to the Setup menu, Speaker setup / Manual setup and find there item called "Test tone". It will output a test tone to each speaker individually (you will see on LCD which speaker is being tested at each moment). If you will hear a sound from the center now, there is no issue and center is working fine, just your source didn't contain any sound for the center.

If it doesn't work, then either you have faulty cable, faulty speaker or faulty center output of the receiver.
- Try connecting the center speaker to different output of receiver (this will test if speaker is OK).
- Try connecting working LEFT speaker to left output with CENTER cable (this will test if cable is OK).
- Try connecting working LEFT speaker with working cable to the CENTER output (this will test the output of receiver if OK - but use the Test Tone from Setup).

Onkyo TX-DS696 receiver center channel not working


Can you say explicitly that the Center Channel speaker is defined as something other than NONE?

And how does dialog sound? If it sounds ok you're routing it to the front speakers. This is from the manual...

"For ideal Surround effects, all speakers should be installed. If a
center speaker or subwoofer is not connected, the sound from the unused channel is properly distributed to the connected speakers in order to produce the best Surround sound possible."

your going to need this place to download the remedy's for your system http://www.euras.com/repair_tips_1/CARVER/AV505/AV505_CARVER.htm

if it is not working then there is another serious problem , and it could be the amp IC or the volume IC but tests will need to be done to determine what is causing the failure , but it does sound like amp IC as a suspect since the rear were not even working , did the volume seem different when turning it up or down before the center quit or after the center quit?
