| | Is my receiver broken? Center speaker not working at all....
Hi there, glad that I found this forum and I really hope someone here can shed some light on my situation. I recently picked up a used av receiver; I have spent the last few days gathering everything else I needed to make it work. I have successfully hooked up the front left and right and the surround right and left but I can't seem to get the center speaker to give me any sound. I've tried two different speakers on it and I've even tried to use the center pre-out to see if the tv would act as my center speaker.
Here's my setup:
Pioneer vsx-509s (oldie but a goodie)
aiwa subwoofer 150w self-powered
5 jvc speakers alternatively I have also tried using the speakers from my old all in one surround
in setting up the receiver I did notice that in the speaker selection menu you can turn off the center speaker....this stumped me at first because it was set to off to begin with; after changing that setting I still can't get any sound.
I'm beginning to think I bought a dud and maybe I should look for another receiver.....what do you guys think???
I'm open to any suggestions, I even looked to see if there was a way to reset my receiver but that doesn't seem to be an option.
