Center Speaker Not Working Sony Home Theater


I've read through the manual and all of their suggestions I've already tried without any success.   My setup is a Polk CS1 center channel with 2 Polk Monitor 30's and a Pioneer VSX-8231 You may need to use a sound field setting with the word Dolby or Dolby Pro Logic or DPL to activiate the center channel speaker when you are using a stereo Then I tried hooking up a left speaker to the center output, same problem.Click to expand... Also I found this for a similar model: 545 Manual - similar to 445? Source

If they don't, then the receiver probably is in Stereo mode. I have used the same one for most sites for many years. Blu-ray Software Blu-ray Disc Great Found Deals! Follow our team for updates featuring event coverage, new product unveilings, watch industry news & more!

I have an Onk and not a Pio, but the general principal is the same. First, disconnect both wires going to the center channel speaker from the receiver. So this must mean my receiver has a problem. Recently though I made the plunge into home theater ownership and with that I've also encountered my first problem to go along with it.

but... I guess problems weren't limited to just their tvs....:wink; #6 Goosemaster, Aug 16, 2003 Goosemaster Lifer Joined: Apr 10, 2001 Messages: 48,779 Likes Received: 0 j/king by the way.

You're lucky your Sony lasted three years. I hooked one of the other working speakers up to the center connection on the back of the receiver and I get nothing. Yep, sounds bad... These new AVRs have tons of "features" and sometimes default to various modes without consulting you.

I played around with it some yesterday and it never said it was in stereo. LCD Flat Panel Displays LCD Flat Panel Great Found Deals!

But considering how I've already had problems with my right channel, I'm predicting that it's still a dying amp. Have you tried pressing the "AUTO/Direct" button several times? Then I tried test tone and center did not work. hjones4841 is offline Rules Quote Quick Reply post #5 of 11 Old 02-01-13, 08:04 PM fidstang Shackster Join Date: Feb 2013 Location: Middle right hand Posts: 7 Re: center
